ALL-NEW Whirlpool Belt Drive Agitator Washer In Action!!




What do you think about this video?

HowsaBowsaYowsa: I have the Whirlpool WTW4800BQ which is the newer belt driven model. I have had it for 9 months now and I think it is great. I defeated the lid locking mechanism like you have and now I get to watch it in action. I love watching it go through the cycles. My last washer before this was a whirlpool direct drive which I had for 21 years of service. It washed great too, was a bit louder overall, but was overall quicker getting the cycles completed than the new one I have now. Not by a lot, but on average my washing cycles take about 5 - 10 minutes longer to complete than with the old one. Not complaining, but wondering if Whirlpool will go back to direct drive in the future.

Willie Peck: Those direct drives are not stupid! They actually are worth buying. My grandma has one. 15 years old. Works like new. You will be lucky to get 5 years out of that washer!

Winston Elston: I had one briefly. I actually put clothes in mine when it ran. The freewheel pawls driving the screw on the dasher (let William F. Buckley call it an agitator) slam so loudly that the next door neighbors asked what I was hammering. Our houses are 20 feet apart and the windows were closed. Hurlpoop's service company said they're all like that. I'll never buy another washer like this one!

djnemesis82pluss1877: The motor in mine only goes one direction while agitating it's really wonderful because it eventually gets the water circulating so fast it just goes right over the tub lip and onto the floor. While also wrapping clothes around the agitator Guessing that's a bad timer ?

Smorf Hound: I WISH that the instructions would tell you that the whirr noise is normal!! I thought mine was broken! Hear it as it agitates?? Whirr WHirr Whirr Whirr .... like rubbing? Sheeesh!! I have a Roper. Stop scaring us like that. I thought I had to take it back to the store! 

inmylife10465: Thank you for the info: Question = Is it normal for the noise that it makes when lightly spinning?I notice ,the larger the wash,the louder it sounds.Sounds a little like a combination of a duck and a saw.lol.Don't know how else to describe it,but i would think it should be much more quiet than my old 1992 whirlpool. Answers anyone? Thank you. Drew.

Jay Spencer: Have you seen the new tub removal tool for Cabrio, Oasis and Bravos washers. Part# JTP2014B??? It's Awesome!!

HowsaBowsaYowsa: I just got the latest version of this washer. Thanks for the video, I was wondering what was happening under the locked hood. so far I am really loving the washer and I agree overall it is quiet....Now I have to take that thing off the lid like you did so I can watch it wash for myself!!!!! I hope that won't eventually casue a problem if I do that.

Whirlpool Washer: The machine is going to break easily and trash the place and suck! The direct drives are WAY better!

Max Kolbe: Not so new any more it is not in the stores any more

Red And White: Has this washer gotten off balance before?

797lou: Speedqueen is too astronomically expensive !!

B T: If you want a good washer go SPEEDQUEEN...I sell these things and they are amazing! I also sell the Whirlpool and get 5 complaints for every 10 I sell. 

That One Ford Guy: Todays washing machines are a joke...

Poor Person: How many yrs, with the belt yield?

Ra's al Ghul: very low water level. cannot load too much clothes or else they wont be cleaned. epa regulation on low water level! very bull crap. there are videos on YT, which show you how to adjust the water level, to be filled up all the way to the top, as it should be. very easy! i have done it mysel! now, i can load more clothes. clothes come out cleaner with full water. i can hear the washer now runs much much much smoother with full water, less stress on the motor!

Ed Weldon: I wouldnt want THAT much index on my tub

Ryan Holcomb: I have an LG front loader direct drive and when you put it on extra high spin it sounds like a machine gun in the laundry room.

Kaustubh Joshi: Good One !! Best Of Luck

jmc6000: @MrFlyguy124 No, actually there is no transmission as the motor does all the agitation by moving in both directions when it agitates.

jmc6000: No

Sharkie626: @jmc6000 I cant give a reason for the water pumps, but I can see why some people have their coupling or transmission go early. On some of the vids here, I have seen people overload the washer so bad that the clothes don't even move, that will indeed put much stress on parts and cause clothing damage. Did this washer replace your GE?

Otávio Augusto: @jmc6000 ahh yes .sorry if I wrote something wrong because I am not expert in English as in Portuguese

Kyle Combs: @jmc6000 Is the drum freewheeling or being turned by the motor?

jmc6000: @RobGwisdala This is not the exact same as the South American made Brastemp/Whirlpool washer. I will admit that the design is very simular but there are some differences as well. Most of the "world" washers are small and do not even come close the the 3.5 size the washer has, plus this washer does not have the cumbersome drum brake and engagment system that the smaller South American designed, "world", washers have.

jmc6000: @TheToploaderwasher Stll have the GE hydrowave at the house. I recorded this video at my work and I work for Rent-A-Center.

Randy Hansen: I can hardly hear the motor. Is it ultra-quiet?

Sharkie626: @SpazChat You REALLY have a grudge against them, don't you?

jmc6000: @Organgrinder1010 I never owned this washer it was a demo that was used at my job.

SirtubalotTX: Why are they not making direct drive anymore? My parents have a set of direct drive Whirpools that have been going for almost 20 years. How does a belt drive help it clean better relative to the direct drive counterparts? My whicky poo meter is goigng off. I'll keep my direct drives thank you.

jmc6000: @Skreem2 Well at the time of the video the washer was infact having full incoming water pressure to it, but it is indeed restricted once it enters the drum.

Brian C: NEVER BUY A WHIRLPOOL

gregbert2: yes this does have a transmission & yes it does have and can leak oil Direct drive has plastic gears too look for rebuild vids on youtube

jmc6000: @JSneaker Acually the ratcheting top is very effective on this model and you either have a choice of the shower rinse or if you select the fabric sofner then you get a full basket rinse

That One Ford Guy: Exactly, I dont think this will wash my blankets pillows and bed sheets when needed. I need my Direct Drive. We all do.

Marshall H.: Whirlpool should bring back the direct drive system.

dualactionsurgilator: Very interesting. The action looks like it is using the Fisher and Paykel drive system that the Cabrio uses. Are they the same?

Jackson's Mario Kart Channel: My family has a 4.7 Cubic ft.LG washer high capacity and we still do 3 loads a day!

liz boz: @jmc6000 I had live to have DDs. I had an old Whirlpool 1990's over 10 years old, and then our Kenmore 500 4 years old from 2008, and still working great.

jmc6000: @JSneaker It sure does!!

Sharkie626: @jmc6000 did they by any chance own one of the lower 1-speed models? We do have some delicate clothing, but thankfully our machine is 3 speed (you can see it in my vids) and has appropriate agitation for delicate items.

jmc6000: @JSneaker Hummm? You I have been in both washer inside and out and I really see the belt drives being just as reliable if not MORE reliable than the old direct drives. Plus these washer do offer a conventional wash and rinse and just beacuse you chose the fabric softener option on the control panel does not mean you have to use it in the washer.

Bill Slater: Watching this video, I get the feeling Whirlpool is using the Fisher & Paykell system. It agitates and sounds just like the Fisher & Paykell top load machines.

liz boz: @jmc6000 Have you had direct drives (DDs) before?

Organgrinder1010: Video very helpful—thanks. How do you like your washer after a year of use?

jmc6000: Why??

Bill Slater: @themaytagrepairman I did some digging and found out Whirlpool is buying the drive system from Fisher & Paykel. The same way they are buying the drive systems for the Whirlpool Duet, Kenmore ht series, and the KitchenAid front loaders from Bosh.

nova9403: Why do Whirlpool let direct-driven washer die? Because they're too noisy??? I have an Amana washer that is a direct-driven and the loudness don't bother me anymore.

jeffhanson1: The Amana, Admiral, Roper top load agitator models are all made my Whirlpool now and look the same in many ways. The only difference is on the Roper, Whirpool decided to put a 1-piece old fashioned-style agitator on it. That's not necessarily a bad thing (less moving agitator parts in exchange for less clothing movement).
