Largest Whirlpool Washing Machine Modles of the Year_Whirlpool WTW7500GW Top Load Washer


Whirlpool is a top washing machine brand in the US, and is a powerful force in the market along with its subsidiaries Maytag and Amana. As larger washing machines become more widely available and more popular, Whirlpool has kept up with some huge-capacity models! If you're looking for the largest Whirlpool washing machine models, we've compiled our top picks for 2020 in this category, including front loading and top loading models. They range from around 4.5 to 5.3 cubic feet of capacity and prices range from $799 to $1,499.

Before we begin: compare front load vs top load washers in our article if you're not sure which style suits your needs, the advantages and disadvantages of front load washers, and the benefits of a top loading washer.

1. Whirlpool WFW5620HW - 4.5 cu. ft. - $899

First up on our list of the largest Whirlpool washing machines is front load model WFW5620HW, priced at around $899 with 4.5 cubic feet of capacity. This model is closet-depth, so it has a shallower depth measurement than other options on the market today. The Steam Clean option helps release stains and odors from fabrics through heat and increased wash action. Whirlpool offers a different set of controls than what you may be familiar with: a "What to Wash" and "How to Wash" set of buttons so you can pair washing actions with fabric types to get the best results.

Another great feature is the Load and Go dispenser, which allows you to fill up the washer with enough detergent for up to 20 loads at a time, or even 40 depending on your detergent concentration! The washer automatically dispenses the correct amount of detergent for you depending on the cycle and options selected and other factors. Using too much or too little detergent can have unsatisfactory results on your fabrics, so letting the washing machine take care of it is a great idea from Whirlpool!

The Smooth Wave stainless steel wash basket, time remaining readout, and dispensers for bleach and fabric softener are additional convenient features in this front load washer. The Pre Soak option lets you soak clothes in the washer for improved stain removal, and the Quick Wash cycle will clean small, lightly soiled loads in as little as 15 minutes. Overall, it's a fully featured front load washer at a great price!

2. Whirlpool WFW9620HW - 5.0 cu. ft. - $1,399

This is the last front load washer on our review of the largest Whirlpool washing machines: the 5.0 cubic foot Whirlpool WFW9620HW. This is another closet depth model that incorporates Whirlpool's "What to Wash" and "How to Wash" controls. However, these controls are part of a touch screen on the washer door rather than a separate panel!

The Load and Go XL Plus dispenser holds enough detergent for up to 40 loads, and smart technology even allows your washer to notify you on your smartphone when the detergent is running low! This model also has a Steam Clean option, plus other great features like a Presoak option, Sanitize cycle, and Whirlpool's Fan Fresh technology, too. A built-in fan allows you to dry small loads overnight, such as a sports uniform or work outfit, without needing to transfer them to the dryer. The Fan Fresh option can also keep clothes fresh for longer - up to 12 hours! - for those times when you can't immediately move clothes from washer to dryer. 

The stainless steel wash drum, interior drum light, and internal water heater are all great features as well in this model. If your busy household means you can't always closely monitor your laundry, the Fan Fresh option might be a helpful convenience. 



  • Energy Star rated

  • 12-Hour Fan Fresh technology can dry small loads

  • Load & Go XL Dispenser

  • What to Wash: Regular, Colors, Whites, Towels, Delicates, Bulky Items

  • How to Wash: Normal, Quick, Wrinkle Control, Heavy Duty, Cold Wash, Sanitize

  • 4 Wash Options: Pre-Soak, Steam Clean, Extra Rinse, FanFresh®

  • Maximum spin speed: 1,200 RPM



  • Width: 27"

  • Depth: 31.5"

Whirlpool WFW9620HW Front Load Washer



3. Whirlpool WTW8500DW - 5.3 cu. ft. - $1,199

We've looked at a couple of front load washers, and now it's time for the top load washer to shine: the Whirlpool WTW8500DW is one of the largest Whirlpool washing machine models at 5.3 cubic feet! It comes in white or eye-catching cranberry red at $1,199, or chrome shadow at $1,299. This high efficiency top load washer is Energy Star rated and has a direct drive motor with spin speeds of up to 850 RPM. 

The low-profile impeller agitator helps boost the capacity without sacrificing cleaning power. The advanced wash actions adapt to the type of load being washed and helps clothes wash against each other for gentler fabric care. Active Spray Technology eliminates the need to pretreat by spraying down each load with a mixture of detergent and water. It also comes with a Steam Clean option, and the TimedOxi dispenser can dispense Oxi or other laundry booster at the correct time during the wash cycle with the Oxi Dispense option selected. This model uses Whirlpool's intuitive touch controls with "What to Wash" and "How to Wash" sections to customize cycles to fabric type, soil level, and more.

Lastly, we want to mention the Quiet Wash Ultra noise reduction system. If your laundry area is near the living room, a bedroom, or other living space, you may be looking for a quiet washing machine. This pick for the largest Whirlpool washing machine has a compact motor and sound-absorbing material to minimize operation noise. It's ideal for open floor plans, second floor laundry rooms, and more!

4. Whirlpool WTW7500GW - 4.8 cu. ft. - $899

Available in chrome shadow at $999 or white at $899, the Whirlpool WTW7500GW is a 4.8 cubic foot capacity top load washer. Another high efficiency top load washer, this model also features a low-profile impeller to boost capacity and is Energy Star rated with a direct drive motor. An 850 RPM max spin speed pulls moisture from your clothes, decreasing drying time. Not all of Whirlpool's washers are made in America, but this model is!

The smooth touch controls are easy to use thanks to clear labeling and have a premium feel. The washer can "guide" you to the right cycle combinations by recommending cycles based on what you select under the "What to Wash" section of the control panel, or you can even create custom cycles. An LED time remaining display makes it easy to tell how much time is left in the cycle. 

Adaptive Wash Technology with Active Bloom wash action ensures that any load size and type will receive the right water levels and wash actions to clean it best. Another great feature of this model is the built-in water faucet, so you can easily prewash clothes. It turns on and off with the press of a button, and will automatically shut off if left on. The owner's manual even includes instructions on how to presoak without running the wash cycle, so you could even hand wash clothes, then have the tub drain and spin them!



  • Energy Star rated

  • Built-in water faucet for prewashing

  • What to Wash: Colors, Darks, White, Towels, Bedding/Bulky

  • How to Wash: Normal, Quick, Delicate, Heavy Duty, ColorLast

  • 4 Wash Options: Presoak, Extra Rinse, Delay Start, Clean Washer

  • Maximum spin speed: 850 RPM

  • EasyView frameless glass lid with slow-close technology

  • Designed, engineered, and assembled in the USA



  • Width: 27.5"

5. Whirlpool WTW7000DW - 4.8 cu. ft. - $799

Next up on our list of the largest Whirlpool washing machine models is the Whirlpool WTW7000DW, the least expensive model on our list at $799. Compare it to model #4 if you want a washing machine on the upper end of the "large" capacity range at a lower price! This model is an Energy Star rated high efficiency top load washer with impeller. If you're looking for a top load washer with a deep water wash option, but still want a model that's energy efficient, this model might be a great choice!

At this lower price point, you're still getting a ton of the great features found in the previous washers on our review. Options include Deep Clean, ColorLast, and Presoak. The intuitive touch controls are there, too, with Whirlpool's unique approach that guides you through how to wash a load based on what you're washing. It's very similar to the previous model, #4: the main difference is that it lacks the built-in water faucet.

If you don't find pre-washing necessary for your laundry needs but still want a model like the WTW7500GW above, this model might be a great alternative. Plus, this model features the Quiet Wash Ultra noise reduction system, so if you have an open floor plan or a laundry room near living areas or on the second floor, this washer might be a great choice for you!



  • Energy Star rated

  • What to Wash: Bulky Items, Delicates, Whites, Casuals, Mixed

  • How to Wash: Normal, Quick, Cold, Deep Water, ColorLast

  • 5 Wash Options: Delay Start, Deep Clean, Clean Washer, Extra Rinse, Presoak

That sums up our top picks for the largest Whirlpool washing machine models! Let's break down the features and options available to help you make a thorough comparison.

  • Front vs Top Load: The first two models on our list are front load washers with 4.5 and 5.0 cubic feet of capacity. The top load models are larger at 4.8 cubic feet and above. The front loaders can fit under counters and are stackable, ideal if you want to conserve space with a stackable washer dryer pair, and are also ADA compliant if your household includes someone with a physical disability. 

  • Quiet Wash System: On our list, top load models #3 and #5 come with Whirlpool's Quiet Wash Ultra noise reduction system. These models are a good fit for open floor plans, second-floor laundry rooms, and other setups where operation noise could be intrusive.

  • Overall Footprint: The front load washers have the largest footprints at 27" wide by 31.5" deep. Even the largest top loader on our list (#3) has a similar footprint to the 4.8 cubic foot top loaders (#4 and #5) at 27.5" wide by 28" deep. The last washer, #5, has a slight edge with dimensions of 27.5" wide and 27" deep.

  • Unique Options & Features: The first three models (two front load washers and one top load) all include Steam Clean options! Model #2 also features Fan Fresh technology, and model #4 offers a built-in sink for pre-washing. Load and Go is a cool option to consider as well to save you time.

  • Price: The cheapest front load washer model is #1 on our list at $899, and the cheapest top load washer model is #5 at $799.
