27 Inch 4.2 cu. ft. Front Load Washer with Adaptive Wash Technology
Whirlpool's WFW9290 front load washer offers a generous 4.2 cu. ft. capacity interior to accommodate your whole family's laundry needs. With 12 cycles and a handful of convenience features, the WFW9290 is equipped to tackle even heavily soiled laundry items of any type.

Whirlpool's convenient Load & Go system can hold enough detergent to wash 12 loads of laundry to cut time out of your laundry routine. With the Wash and Dry cycle, you can have tomorrow's laundry ready to wear without having to use the dryer - after the wash cycle, FanFresh technology will fan-dry your laundry so it's ready to go when you need it the next day.

Whirlpool takes great care to preserve your clothes with features like ColorLast. The ColorLast cycle adjusts wash action, gentle temperatures and wash time to keep colors vibrant longer. For heavily soiled laundry items, features like the steam cycle and the presoak setting go above and beyond to clean, destain and sanitize. And, once the wash cycle is over, the 12 Hour FanFresh option can keep your clothes fresh and wrinkle-free by tumbling clothes periodically for up to 12 hours.

The WFW9290 is an energy efficient unit. This ENERGY STAR rated washer's EcoBoost option boosts energy efficiency without sacrificing performance by lowering temperatures and increasing tumble time. Get all the cleaning power you require without racking up the heavy utility bills. This is a closet depth washer with ADA height and is side-and-front reach compliant.
