The Good The display panel on Whirlpool's $999 WTW7500GC top-load washer is well designed, which makes it easy to find what you're looking for. It has a built-in water faucet for hand washing delicate clothes and/or scrubbing stains before starting the cleaning cycle.

The Bad Stain removal isn't its strength.

The Bottom Line Consider the Whirlpool WTW7500GC washing machine if you really care about design, but its disappointing performance should give you pause.

Whirlpool's $999 WTW7500GC top-load washing machine has a faucet built into its washer drum like GE's $799 GTW750CSLWS for convenient hand washing and stain treating. It also has the easiest-to-read display panel I've ever seen -- everything is so neatly organized that I hope other brands take note. Sadly, the WTW7500GC wasn't as good at removing stuff like red wine and cocoa as other washers we've tested. 

It's a shame, because I like a lot of things about the Whirlpool WTW7500GC, but this isn't the washing machine for folks who consider performance a prime concern (and that will be most of you). If you care more about design and usability, this could be the right model.

The WTW7500GC's higher price is somewhat misleading in the chart, since the gray finish costs more -- and the other three washers I tested (in roughly the same price range) had white color finishes. All three of the Whirlpool's competitors are also available in gray and also cost $100 more in gray, making the gray Maytag and Samsung washers $999 and GE's gray washer $899. 

No, the WTW7500GC doesn't have as many cleaning cycles as its counterparts, but it covers the basics with normal, quick, delicate, heavy duty and "colorlast" options. 

It doesn't have any smart integrations either, but its built-in faucet is somewhat unique, a feature that's also available on GE's GTW750CSLWS. 

The faucet in Whirlpool's WTW7500GC is controllable via a simple button in the back of the washer with a water droplet icon. Press it to send water into the drum; press it again to stop it. On the GE washer, you have to select the "Water Station" setting on the display's control knob and hit start. 

There's nothing different about the installation for either the GE or the Whirlpool washers with these built-in faucets. Both companies simply give you on-demand access to the water line that fills the tub anyway during a normal wash cycle. This way, you can fill the drum to soak your clothes -- or use the stream of water to hand wash or stain treat -- whenever you need to.
