Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Having now, after two months, had the opportunity to test my AWE 5617 on all the programmes that I am likely to use I am delighted to provide my opinion.
It does all that it says on the tin, and even better than the three previous Whirlpool top loaders which it has replaced.
Most noticeable is its quietness and the absence of leaping around during the spin cycle compared with previous models.
Excellent, very understandable, programme selection, once one has taken the trouble to read the instructions. These, though lengthy, tell one all one needs to know!
Bad points:
Sadly, let down by the accompanying Programme Chart printed 'GB' only, without specifying the Model Number! As it turned out this chart was irrelevant in that it contained,inter alia, two non-existent wash programmes! These might have applied either to a previous model or maybe one which was either never launched or has since been withdrawn, but I suspect the chart supplied was one of a draft print run-off which should have been strangled at birth and never allowed to get into the distribution system. Careless!
Fortunately I spotted this and the correct Chart applicable to this model i.e. AWE 5617 was most promptly supplied by Whirlpool via email following my complaint and at my request, and I was then able to print this off.
Not a mechanical fault, just an annoyance, but nevertheless this has to lower my overall product rating from 10 to 8 - sorry!

Compact, fits into narrow space, but not compromising on load.
Top loader.
Bad points:
No half load setting - a minor issue
Higher spin speed would be better.

Gordon, Essex

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
We have had this machine in various forms since the late "Sixties" when it was made byPhilips and the drum was mounted much the same as most "TV" type machines. The slimline effect was created by turning the mounting by 90 degrees. The name became Whirlpool and we bought our second one in 2007.
This has just been replaced only because it was almost cheaper to buy new than wait a week for an expensive service engineer. It's still the best.
Sadly if you want a matching tumble drier, you have to bring one over from España
