Product Reviews
Rated 3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great combo with the dryer I have nothing bad to say about this machine. If you get the dryer with it, remember to get not just the dryer kit but also a water hose connection (two hoses) for the steam option on the dryer. One extra hose to connect the splitter, then another to go from the splitter to the dryer. 3/22/13
Rated 1 out of 5 by New technology not ready for prime time We purchased in 8/13. The fabric softener dispenser does not work. 9/22/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Still puts a smile in my face Coming from Europe a Front Loader was imperative for me. More importantly I was looking for a model with all those features that are standard with even the most basic models in Europe but come as an "extra" in the US: internal water heater, automatic fabric softener dispensing, high spinning speed, extra-rinse cycle to name a few. I was glad to have found this model at a decent price combined with the drawer. After reading some horrifying reviews about Whirlpool front loaders not being very reliable at all I was a bit scared and concerned about the design and built quality of the units and was originally looking out for an older model still being designed and assembled at Whirlpool's Schorndorf plant in Germany- but did not find any on the market anymore. So I settled for the WFW96HEA in Diamond Steel and I am very pleased with it. It looks good (even if the selector dial feels a bit tatty and the "doodle-chimes" is WOW at first but really gets on your nerves after some time). With all our stuff from Europe arriving in a big container there was a lot of washing and drying to be done and I have to say I am so far really pleased with the results. The machine runs extremely quiet and smooth and the results are just a pure joy. No regrets. 10/7/13
Rated 1 out of 5 by piece of junk Purchased approx. 2-3 years ago. Started gushing water one day. Called repairman and he said my machine had a hole in the tub. Called the whirlepool people and they basically said too bad because I had not purchased their extended warranty. While I didn't, one would expect a machine that cost over a thousand dollars to last a bit longe than less 3 years. It seems to me having a hole in the tub is a pretty big thing and would have to be a defect in the production stage. Oh yes to repair cost over 9oo.00 dollars.BUY THIS AT YOUR PERIL!!!! 9/14/14
