Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding!!! My wife and I have used a Whirlpool washer and dryer for the last 13 years, so we decided to stick with Whirlpool. Are we glad we did!!! We purchased this washer in cranberry and LOVE IT!!! We read the reviews concerning the extended time for "balancing the load". Yes it does add some time to the cycle, but we can live with that. This is our first front loader and we were concerned about the possibility of odors. When using the fanfresh feature, if we leave the clothes in the washer for a couple hours, the washer is bone dry when we remove the clothes. No odors as of yet!! We love the allergen cycle, which has the sanitize temp feature. Never had softer sheets!! Awesome washer with NOTHING bad to say about it!! 3/24/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by best washer Bought a Maytag Neptune when they first came out, figured with their reputation, I would be happy. One of the worst purchases I ever made. Never really saw water saving, and the repairs were frequent. This Whirlpool blows it away. Don't know how dependable it will be, but there is no doubt that this front load washer uses less water, and the clothes still come out clean! Haven't used all the cycles yet, but slowly trying them all out. Love that it tells you how much longer the cycle will be. With the inside light, you'll catch yourself watching the clothes wash when you first get it. LOL! 5/5/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Washer I needed to replace my old front loader due to rotational failure. This washer may cycle a little longer than most but that's because it automatically sets the load for balance. The unit does a fantastic job of cleaning. Clothes come out clean and pratically dry. My dry time has dropped from 40 mionutes per load to 20! 7/25/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by Why Not! Excellent appliance. My wife loves her new washer for the color, the functions LCD screen and all the nice features that it comes with. It is so easy to operate, after all it is a Whirlpool Duet... our last Laundry set was Whirlpool Duet and we never had any issues. I recommend this washer to anyone. 9/8/11
