Do all agree? I am entertaining the idea of returning this based on a comment on this forum, and a couple of reviews I have read. Most reviews are positive, but a few say it is noisy and tears up clothes, along with other mechanical issues. I'm just looking to replace a 22 year old Maytag A5000, with something comparable. Sorry if this is not the place to discuss this. I do trust the experts on this forum. Thanks!

I think your model number is wrong, but if this is a basic Whirlpool made top loader than I think you will be fine. If not, post the correct model number and let's see what you have.

Your correct. It is a MVWC350AW. It is a basic top loader. Thanks!
I put the old one out in front of the house Monday night. Someone picked it up today.

This is the new (3 yrs) Whirlpool belt drive design, not the well built proven direct drive design that is no longer made. It has been very problematic with the shift actuator quickly becoming one of the most replaced washer parts, and now Whirlpool is advising replacing the main wiring harness with it due to the many connector and broken wire problems that this washer has had. There are complaints on models of this design regularly on the various washer repair forums and ongoing discussions amongst techs on the private forums.
