Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 804-435-3031 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

Wash clothes your way and on your time, even when you're away from home. The Whirlpool® app allows you to remotely start and pause cycles, track cycle progress and receive energy usage and Clothes Clean notifications when loads finish.

Image Feature

Laundry Alerts and Diagnostic Tool

Wash clothes more efficiently with helpful Laundry Alerts, which let you know if there's a detergent overfill or an unbalanced load that may affect performance. You'll also receive step-by-step instructions and select how-to videos to help guide you through quick fixes with the Diagnostic Tool.

Specialty and Customized Cycles

You'll never feel tied to the Normal cycle again with specialty cycles. Released seasonally as free downloads through the Whirlpool® app, cycles for everything from swimwear to sleeping bags are designed to provide optimal care for each item. Plus, you can create and save your own unique cycle to wash exactly the way you want with the Whirlpool® app, and then download the cycle directly to your washer using the Download & Go option.

Amazon Replenishment

Automatically order laundry supplies when you're running low by syncing your Whirlpool® app with your Amazon account. This feature estimates the amount of supplies remaining and targets the right time to order necessities like dryer sheets so your family always has what they need to do laundry when they need it.

Image Feature

Precision Dispense

Precision Dispense provides optimal cleaning by releasing detergent at the correct time during the cycle for optimal fabric care. Detergent mixes with water to penetrate fabrics and virtually eliminate pretreating.

Image Feature

Presoak Option

Enjoy better cleaning with the Presoak option that lets you skip soaking outside of the washer. Extra time is added in the washer before the wash cycle, which starts automatically when the option is complete.

Image Feature

Direct Drive Motor

The Direct drive motor is what helps our transmission system handle larger-capacity loads. It uses fewer moving parts so there's less wear and tear over time.

Nest Learning Thermostat Integration Integrate your Nest Learning Thermostat with the Whirlpool® app. Take advantage of the Rush Hour Rewards program to avoid running the washer during peak energy usage hours.

Energy Advisor Energy Advisor enables your washer to turn on "Smart Delay" so you can avoid running it during estimated peak demand periods.

Adaptive Wash Technology with Active Bloom Wash Action Whirlpool® Cabrio® washers deliver better clean and better care. It's all thanks to Adaptive Wash technology with Active Bloom wash action. It senses the needs of each load, then adapts water levels to use advanced wash actions for improved cleaning and gentler care.

Low-Profile Impeller Our low-profile impeller helps give clothes a thorough yet gentle clean. It features a seamless surface and unique vanes to drive clothes from the outer rim to the center, where the deepest cleaning happens.

Active Spray Technology Virtually eliminate the need to pretreat with Active Spray technology. It saturates clothes with a mixture of detergent and water to cover fabrics completely and evenly for better cleaning performance.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
