Review Title: Excellent features and very easy to use. | Review by
Always wanted to have a front loading washing machine and having bought this particular model it completely suits my needs and is extremely easy to use and very economical too - in electric consumption and consumables I get a very clean, wrinkle free and almost dry wash. Extremely happy with my purchase.
Review Title: Love my new upgrade! | Review by
I bought this mid July & fell in love!! No complaints!
Review Title: Quality Machine | Review by
We owned a Duet for nine years and sold it with our home, Just purchased a new one because the last one was high quality doing excellent washing of our clothing. Nine years and not one problem, still going strong.
Review Title: nice and quiet :) | Review by
Love my new Whirlpool washer. Very quiet and efficient.
Review Title: Reliable | Review by
I have this washer for two months now and it works great! With two teenagers playing sports I needed an efficient and reliable machine. This is it!
Review Title: Great Results | Review by
I bought this last month when my previous front loader died after 9 years. I am amazed that the "normal" wash is 10 minutes faster than the previous washer. Great results and plenty of options.
Review Title: Love It!!!! | Review by
My first Whirlpool washing machine had just reached its life expectancy and I ran out and got new one. No hesitation to buy Whirlpool again! This time I've got the "steam clean" feature and I can't wait to use it. This machine is precision and I hope it lasts as long as my last one.
Review Title: Time Saver | Review by
We purchased our Duet washer and dryer a few months ago, and we are very pleased. The large capacity saves so much time. The front load washer has saved big time in our water bill and the clothes are cleaner and softer. We purchased the 5 year extender warranty, and still paid less money compared to other brands. Well worth the money.
Review Title: Love the new features and how much it can hold | Review by
I bought this one month ago after my prior washer died. I love that there are no moving parts for the agitator which caused my other one to fail. Having kids in the house, I like the feature that will tumble the clothes until my kids or myself remember to pull the clothes out of the washer as they have less wrinkles that way. I am also seeing a cost savings from using less water and detergent which is also a big plus!
Review Title: Possibly the best out there! | Review by
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this washer! Our old washer made the clothes and towels stinky. Nothing like drying off with a sour smelling towel! I thought I was going to throw them away. We bought this washer and I used the sanitized setting for the towels. It made them smell better and each time using the towel setting, they smell and feel better! I highly recommend this washer. (and it's easy to use and quiet too!).
Review Title: Quieter than expected. | Review by
Runs much quieter than expected. Does not vibrate, does not 'walk' on the pedestal. So far, very happy.
Review Title: new washer | Review by
I am enjoying my new whirlpool washer! Would recommend to others
Review Title: Excellent machine | Review by
This is my second whirlpool front load washer and I am totally satisfied with the washer. It is so quiet and big enough to wash big blankets and comforters. I would highly recomend this washer to anyone looking to buy a washer.
Review Title: Fantastic washer | Review by
This washer more than lives up to all the hype about front loaders. Less water, gentler on the clothes, and less time in the dryer when they come out. We have had the washer a few months now and we are well on our way of being Whirlpool people for life.
Review Title: nice features | Review by
I have had this product 4 months ago and it is wonderful.
Review Title: Great Washer | Review by
I bought this 2 months ago and it's working great. It is a lot fancier than other old top loader. It seems to do a great job washing. My only complaint is that my 2 year old is always turning it on and off.
Review Title: Love the washer! Large capacity and great features. | Review by
Have had it 6 weeks. And love the way the clothes are clean. Very quiet
Review Title: love the washer and dryer set | Review by
i bought this set about six weeks ago to replace another brand front loader that had many problems.fortunately I had kept up with maintenance agreement. But having many repairs were time consuming. It finally could not be fixed.To my surprise the company gave me credit for a new washer. the place recommended this machine to me. I did not hesitate, since I already did my research.My husband and I love both,clothes smell cleaner,look cleaner, clothes dry wrinkle free, and so much quieter. You really need to play around with all the settings and read all operating tips before you write any reviews,
Review Title: Efficiency | Review by
I bought a washer and dryer a month ago! And I am more than satisfied! Great features, great work. Meets all of my expectations!
Review Title: Stylish and Quiet. | Review by
I upgraded from a top load wash to this new front load washer and it was the best investment I've made. The washer is very stylish and modern looking and it is quiet when running. The buttons are easy to use and it didn't require me to read a whole manual to figure out how to use it. Power, start and settings button. That's pretty much it.
Review Title: Super quiet - Great cleaning | Review by
Really easy to use, so easy in fact that my wife did not have to teach me. Great looking as well.
Review Title: A really great washer. Washes everything and whisper quiet. | Review by
I purchased this washer about two months ago. For a really long time I was either doing laundromats, shared laundry facilities, or a rental washer. When I had the chance to buy a new washer, I wanted to spoil myself a little bit and glad I did!
Review Title: Does Everything Well | Review by
Bought this unit a few months ago when our existing washing machine drum became warped (cheaper to replace the unit than repair it). Although this unit is slightly larger than our old one, it fit in the same space. The new technology (our old unit was 10 years old) is great- faster spin cycle, more energy efficient, and the steam clean option is great. Controls are simple and easy to use, although you have to bend down a bit to be able to see the green display lights.
Review Title: all the right features | Review by
washes beautifully - just the right features so that everything comes out clean without shrinkage and with minimum wrinkling
Review Title: washing clothes just got easier | Review by
things have never been so clean and the ease of it is intoxicating
Review Title: Nice Unit | Review by
Good unit. No issues. User friendly and nice features!
Review Title: Exceptional machine! Highly recommended! | Review by
I bought this washer a little over a month ago and I have been absolutely thrilled with it. I do not understand how it can clean so well with so little water. I highly recommend it!
Review Title: dryer | Review by

Review Title: Great washer | Review by
Easy to use, quiet, clothes come out very clean. Very satisfied.
Review Title: Awesome Washer! | Review by
We wanted a machine that does what it says it will do and this machine is it. With the electronic drive, the steam feature, the energy efficiency and wonderful design, this is the washer to purchase!
Review Title: Awesome washer | Review by
Have this for about two months now. No complaints. Easy to use. Lots of features.
Review Title: Looked no further for replacement | Review by
When our washing machine gave up, we looked no further and replace the tnire set.
Review Title: Great features | Review by
We're so happy with this washer! Love all the features!
Review Title: Great Washer! | Review by
I bought this washer a week ago and I can already tell the difference the steam makes in a load of whites.
Review Title: Works like it should | Review by
Our old washer died just days before my wife had our first child. The choice was clear. The duet had the best reviews and our washer repair man said the Duets have the best reliability. So far all is well.
Review Title: Fabulous product | Review by
So happy we listened to the reviews and bought this set. Easy to use. Cleans clothes fabulously. Great features.
Review Title: Superior to other brands in every way. | Review by
I purchased this Whirlpool washer after two models from a competitor (the highest ranked one in that well-known consumer magazine) failed miserably within the first week after purchase. This Whirlpool washer is terrific. It does an excellent job of cleaning and I am very pleased with the cycles, specifically the ability to customize them. When we bought it, I thought I would simply pick one or two cycles and use them over and over, but I have found that I am constantly using different combinations and the results are excellent. It takes only a couple of seconds to make the washer do exactly what you need for a given laundry situation. I also really appreciate the tumble fresh option. Our previous eight-year-old front load HE machine (from another manufacturer) would begin to smell moldy if wet laundry stayed in the tub for more than a few seconds after the end of a cycle. I feel like a sap for not buying a Whirlpool sooner. The Whirlpool is also noticeably faster than our old machine. I have only been using the machine for about a month, but so far I can find nothing bad to say about it.
Review Title: Great buy | Review by
I bought this machine over 2 months ago. It works well and I especially like how dry my clothes are when I remove them.
Review Title: Excellent | Review by
We are now into our second month of use. Washer cleans and spins clothes so they are almost dry. My dress shirts are perfect. Thanks
Review Title: Silent and Efficient | Review by
Its so quiet I dont even notice it is working. Once the cycle is complete the clothes are completely dry and soft.
Review Title: Great features | Review by
I did extensive research before deciding on this washer. Read all the reviews, both professional and customer related. Clothes are whiter and fresher.
Review Title: Fantastic machine: effective and gentle | Review by
I bought this machine to replace an old machine with an agitator. To my surprise, after the first wash, my towels even looked cleaner. I was expecting this machine to be more efficient and gentle on my clothes, but I wasn't expecting such a dramatic improvement in effectiveness. Also, I no longer hand wash my delicates, because the delicates setting does seem to be gentle enough--no damage noticed thus far. Gentleness on clothes and towels is the best change for me. The second biggest plus is how dry this machine gets the clothes. It makes the drying time super short (and less costly).
Review Title: Love it! | Review by
Don't let the negative reviews get to you. The washer works great and we have had no problems since we purchased it with the dryer 3 months ago. Some reviews didn't like the noise while it was on the spin cycle but honestly this thing is quiet as can be. The washer is in close proximity to our TV and we never even have to adjust the volume to compensate for the noise. The spin cycle is extremely efficient. It really does save a ton on drying time, and therefore on energy as well. If you're looking for a quality, American-made product look no further!
Review Title: Plug and play... I like this | Review by
Like many of us, guys, we like simple, easy, efficient and up-to-date technology. Plus, we have no time to spend on doing the laundry! This Whirlpool duet does it all! Great product!
Review Title: Great Washer | Review by
Washer works great. Spins clothes so good they are almost dry before heading to the dryer which saves drying time! Would be nice if it had an interior light like the matching dryer does though.
Review Title: Overall Wonderfully | Review by
I've had this amazing washer for about 2 months & I love it!! It's so easy to use & the clothes r so clean!!
Review Title: Impressive machine | Review by
This is my first experience with a front-load washer. My brother has one, and is sold. I am replacing a 19 year old Whirlpool top-load washer. I am very impressed with the build quality. Runs very quietly. Simple to use. Nice features. The heft of this machine is remarkable, nearly 300 pounds. I think it weighs 2x as the top-load model, which contributes to its quiet operation. Highly recommend.
Review Title: Great features, great price. | Review by
Replaced a Maytag washer and so far we are very pleased.
Review Title: Fantastic Washer!!!! | Review by
Needed a new Washer and am so Happy I chose this one. Super Fast, uses way less water and very energy efficient....not to mention the clothes are super clean. A GREAT Washer!!!!
Review Title: an outstanding wash machine | Review by
I bought this washing machine about 3 weeks ago and I can't say enough good things about It.
Review Title: Great washer! | Review by
The size of this washer is great. I can do almost twice as much laundry at one time as I used to. The controls are simple and easy to use. I like the tumble fresh feature as I'm not always able to move the clothes to the dryer right away.
Review Title: quiet, energy saver, does the job better than any machine I've ever had | Review by
This is the best machine I've ever owned. I didn't think I'd need all those features, like steam, but what a great bonus. It's so quiet and does a load in no time. It's also a beautiful piece of machinery to look at.
Review Title: Love the features | Review by
We bought the washer a little over two months ago and yes we just love how it performs and cleans saves us water time and money Thank You Whirlpool
Review Title: Just great! | Review by
I love my new Duet washing machine. It is so easy to use! It thinks for me so I am never guessing how much water to use or if a cycle will be long enough. And I am especially pleased with how dry my clothes already are when they are ready to dry.
Review Title: Sleek design | Review by
We purchased it 2 months ago. Love all the new features, very stylish.
Review Title: EXCELLENT MACHINE! | Review by
Why didn't I get one years ago? My 25 year old top loader was fading away, Researching, and asking friends brought me to this Whirlpool Washer. Two months later, I still like to watch it work for me. Yes, it is true the clothes are cleaner, efficent, easy to use, steamer is GREAT! Cannot say enough about this upgrade for me in my retirement years. I am so grateful for this machine. Don't wait like I did.
Review Title: I love it it's a great machine and washer and dryer | Review by
I brought this washing machine driver several months ago and it's the best thing I could have did
Review Title: So far so good! | Review by
I have only had this washer for 3 weeks but already am loving it so far. Had a GE HE top loader before this and what a piece of junk. Only lasted 3 years and you could hardly put any clothes in it, for it would not get them clean. Could not even think of washing a large hunting jacket in it. This new Whirlpool washer can wash twice as much and larger, heavier items. My whites are even whiter and brighter. Just don't think the HE top loaders have anything on the front loaders.
Review Title: Terrific Machine! | Review by
We bought this a few months ago, when our old one broke! We love it! It takes a good size load, is quiet, and has a lot of nice features as far as it's settings. I would highly recommend it!
Review Title: Great washer!!! | Review by
We have been using this washer for about a month and are so happy with its performance!!! Clothes are cleaner and dry time is less than any other washer we have owned. I'm so glad my friend recommended this washer to me. She loves hers and I love mine.
Review Title: Great buy | Review by
Very efficient and cleans well ,quiet machine .will recommend this!
Review Title: It does everything I can imagine a dryer does, other than singing. | Review by
Nice new addition to our family. I only wish it can sing different tunes at the end of the cycle but that's just me. It does everything I need for a dryer if not more. Glad to make this purchase.
Review Title: Works great | Review by
Replaced an earlier model that lasted us a good decade or more, and this one is a great update to that older workhorse that finally gave out after essentially daily use.
Review Title: GREAT MACHINE! does the job right | Review by
i bought this a few weeks ago, and so far it doesn't disappoint!

Review Title: 4.3cu Duet Steam front loader | Review by
We are very happy with this washing machine. It does everything that was promised.
Review Title: Better thsan I had expected | Review by
Very easy to operate. straightforward operational settings with the ability to edit settings for personal preference washing operation. Extra high spin setting does not move the machine around the laundry room. Quiet during all aspects of the wash and spin cycle. Installed myself-very easy for hook up. Better than I had anticipated.
Review Title: Very quiet | Review by
Purchased this whirlpool after my 10 year old Kenmore front loader broke down. The front loaders have come a long way because this Whirlpool is very quiet, fast and cleans very well. The clothes are almost dry when the spin is completed. It is very easy to use. One issue I do have is when using HE powder during the cold cycle it does not seen to dissolve all the powder there is some left over in the dispensing well.
Review Title: large loads, the despencers are better and the controls are improved | Review by
the machine does more cloths quicker and better and easier

Review Title: awesome awesome | Review by
I bought the washing machine 2 weeks ago and we're totally in love with it we did not buy the dryer because we have a working dryer I ate right dryer I would try to do Wed is just fantastic and I'm saving my pennies for the dryer but your refrigerator I am a Whirlpool person from now on thank you
Review Title: Excellent choice-wonderful | Review by
I bought this as a replacement for an older model whirlpool front loader - it is so quiet and really cleans/spins clothes. I liked the older model, but love this new model. Looks very beautiful too!
Review Title: Awesome performance and features! | Review by
I bought the Whirpool because my Maytag was too costly to repair. Much to my delight the Whirlpool has exceeded all my expectations. So much so, I'm looking to purchase the matching dryer in the next couple of weeks.
Review Title: Great Product | Review by
I purchased this washer about 6 weeks ago and I am very happy about its performance. I washed everything, including quilt cover and thick blanket. This washer handled very well and things I wanted to wash for a long time all got washed.
Review Title: Nicest washer I have ever owned. | Review by
I purchased this washer because I did not like the one that came with the home. I have wanted one for several years but my other whirlpool just keeps going. It is in my IN home.
Review Title: Smart choice | Review by
Works great and easy to use. Have had it for two or three months now and no problems at all. Quiet and gets the laundry nice and clean.
Review Title: Superb Quality And Performance Washing Machine | Review by
Smart buy for the money with the functionality found on the expensive, fancy and high tech washers. It's worth the money. You'll notice the difference on your initial use. Very quiet and sturdy. The clothes are almost dry after spin. You'll get one of the best clothes wash. Performance in its best resulting fresh clean loads.
Review Title: Whirlpool Washer | Review by
We purchased this washer in conjunction with a new Whirlpool gas dryer. It is great and performs as advertised. The supporting feature of this machine was an independent service company who told me to buy a Whirlpool because he does the least repair on them over the years.
Review Title: Best washer ever | Review by
I recently replaced my old washer with this one because my wife is a nurse and the only way to disinfect her uniforms is with steam. Our clothing has never felt so clean and fresh.
Review Title: Love To Wash | Review by
This is probably the best washing machine I have ever had. It has all the features anyone could possibly need and want.
Review Title: Amazing machine! | Review by
We were searching for a great washer/dryer combo for our home to replace our old models. This machine was definitely the right choice with all of the different cycle options as well as cutting down on our utility bills. We couldn't have asked for a better machine!
Review Title: Excellent! | Review by
Excellent! Bought the washer and dryer. I love both appliances. I notice the socks from my children come out cleaner and the clothes that don't go in the dryer that hang to dry, dry in 1/2 the time due to the fact of the high speed spin cycle. Also the dryer I threw in a pair of kids pj's and in less than 3 minutes they were dry and the best feature the dryer stopped. It didn't run on for 1/2 hr. Love my washer and dryer set!!! Very happy Caroline - Toronto Canada

While I didn't want another frontload washer due to mildew, I was talked into it. Clothes are spun to just damp, easy wipe gasket and easy to leave door ajar without using bungee cords!

A washer is a very important appliance to me as I use it a lot! I bought this a few weeks back and fell in love with its performance immediately. It is very quiet and efficient!

I've had this for a little over a month, and I can tell that it is far more superior in workmanship and quality than the front loader that I just replaced

Bought this about a month ago, and so far we love it! Great options and features and world perfectly.
Review Title: Excellent cleaning and saves on water too. | Review by
Replaced an older machine with this one which has better features and saves water along with better cleaning power. It's matching dryer is a great performer too.
Review Title: Love My Whirpool Washer & Dryer | Review by
I am very happy with the operation of my Whirpool Washer & Dryer. Love the sanitize option also the high speed at the end of the wash on the washer. The dryer steamer is an excellent option on the dryer. Especially with young adults in the house who are always in a hurry.
Review Title: Great Features | Review by
I purchased this washer two months ago and I am impressed by all it can do. I was attracted to it because I have allergies and this machine has a sanitize cycle. I have had no problems with the operation of the machine. I have already recommended it to family members. It is made in the USA.
Review Title: wonderful features | Review by

Much quieter than my old machine, hardly know that its spinning

Review Title: Great value and performance | Review by
Great value and performance. Would like to have the option of right/left door opening. Does the job!
Review Title: Great Machine | Review by
After using this machine for a month I find it does a great job. Machine is quite and clothes come out very clean. The only drawback is the location of the dials and the size of the letters in the selections. It would be easier to use and see if they were located on the top of the machine.
Review Title: Easy to use | Review by
Washer get used often in my home. So far have been happy.
Review Title: Awesome cleaning clothes & cut dryer time in half | Review by
I had a 25-30 year old Kenmore that still worked well enough, but we were felt it should be replaced since a failure might = flooding upstairs. Also, it had a harsh vibration during the pin cycle that could be heard throughout the house (as our laundry room is 'upstairs'), regardless of how well loaded and balanced the clothes were in the drum. We chose our new Whirlpool washer for the combination of price, size, efficiency, and because it is Made in the USA. All the features were an added bonus. I made the mistake of deciding to save $$$ on delivery costs, brought it home, moved it upstairs and installed it myself. Folks, I very nearly had it roll over on top of me as I was getting it up the stairs. Do not miss the fact that it weighs 243 lbs (unpacked). It is probably 100 lbs heavier that the old washer! After unpacking it upstairs, I noticed the back panel had been creased / dented in a little bit. No way I wanted to return it now that it was already upstairs, but I thought it should be at least inspected to make sure the indentation would not cause in trouble by possibly scrubbing against moving parts. Not wanting to wait for a repair technician to come out and check it, I decided to 'DIY' since I am a decent at various home repairs. Removing the back panel was straightforward, and it took little effort to beat out the indentation with a mallet. While the back was off the washer, I noticed the massive electric motor that drives the washer drum. It is a thing of beauty. Whirlpool should use pictures of it in their washer marketing materials, it is that awesome. It also became clear what they meant by 'direct drive': There is no belt between the washer drum and the electric motor as the motor is attached directly to the back of the drum. No belt = more reliable. Everything back together and installed, we found the performance of the washer to be excellent. It does a much better job washing dirty clothes, and the spin cycle gets so much more water out of the clothes that it cut the dryer time by MORE THAN HALF. That is a huge saver on the power bill, and our time. That said, here are my two nits. If you fill up the drum completely, it may shake/vibrate quite a bit during the high-speed part of the spin cycle (but not nearly as bad as my old washer vibrated every use). Shaking/vibration is barely noticeable outside the laundry room when we only fill the drum to about 80% full. Also, the soap dispenser drawer retains water drops for more than a day, even if left open. Perhaps a different type of plastic with a rougher surface (that would break up the water surface tension) could have been used in the base of the drawer to aid evaporation? Anyways, after I have finished washing clothes for the day I just remove the drawer and shake out any remaining excess water, not a big deal really. I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could, so it gets 4, as it should until the 2 nits above are resolved.

I love the quick wash feature. Really I love all preset garment feature
Review Title: Easy to use | Review by
This was a replacement machine for the Whirlpool I had purchased a month earlier. The styling had changed and I'm not fond of the new dial, beyond that however, I am pleased.
Review Title: Unlimited combinations | Review by
Simple to use. All water temps work for all cycles. Great feature since no other machine I've had has offered this. Cycles are not overly long. My husband works in an auto repair shop so I love the "Steam Clean" feature.
Review Title: Energy Efficient Washer | Review by
We love the new washer. Our old washer was over 25 years old, it was time for a more efficient upgrade.
Review Title: Easy to use and PLENTY of room for large loads. | Review by
Outstanding set of features, and easy to use. This has been a MAJOR step up from a previous front loader in terms of size of drum; easily takes care of all sheets from all beds in the house with ONE load and washes them completely. Absolutely love the ability to do a extra rinse and spin as one person in this household is very sensitive to chemicals and softeners so we do vinegar rinses for complete rinsing of excess detergents and natural softening of fabrics. One thing that is very noticeable is how quite this unit is from a prior front loader. You almost do not know it is running - literally. This includes utilizing the high speed spin option as this would typically be the noisiest part of the wash cycle. The unit is exceptionally balanced too. The floors do not shake or vibrate intensely during the high speed spin. Using a good quality detergent (and Borax for our hard water) I have had absolutely NO reason to spot clean or use any type of spray per-cleaner / spotter. NONE. This is coming from a household with two very active young girls involved in softball. Do you know what two uniforms look like when they both figured out that sliding into base (especially home) is actually fun??? Everything above if true and correct - no fluff here....and I approve this message!!!!!

I bought 4 month ago, I can wash more clothing in one load, even my king size down comfort.
Review Title: Great washing machine! | Review by
Bought this washing machine after doing a lot of research. I have only had it a month so far but it washes great! It's easy to use and I love the sanitize option.
Review Title: Noisy | Review by
This Duet replaces a Duet that I had for over 9 years. Because I was very satisfied with my old machine, I chose Whirlpool again. I am disappointed in the noise level of this machine. It is much noisier than my old one.
Review Title: Nice Washer/Dryer Combo | Review by
For the price, not a bad set of Washer/Dryer. Works great and can handle large loads with ease. We specifically bought from Best Buy because of their great customer service and warrantee. Just be aware that the child lock feature was defeated by my kid by the third try. Other than that, the machines run quietly and have a sing-song alert after completing a cycle. Beats that annoying beeping sound on our older units. Not to mention, the machines qualified for rebates from the water company as well as the gas company.
Review Title: so far so good | Review by
I bought this a month ago. It uses an adequate amount of water which I like unlike bosh. I wished they included a container to hold the liquid detergent.
Review Title: Good features | Review by
This is my second Whirlpool Duet Steam Front Load Washing Machine with a Steam Option which should speak for itself.
Review Title: Great Spin Cycle | Review by
The spin cycle is so good my clothes are in 75% of the former time.

The is the best washing machine I have ever purchased. The features are easy to use, and it cleans perfectly and quietly. Couldnt ask for more than that.
Review Title: Its so quiet! | Review by
I bought this a couple months ago. I couldn't believe how quiet the washer and dryer are. I also love how well they wash my clothes they smell so much more fresh than my previous front loading washer!!!
Review Title: washes well but... | Review by
We replaced a 10 year old duet with this model. It is almost exactly the same except the new model makes several clicking, pinging noises when it starts up. Maybe weighing load or locking door. The wash is quiet. The clothes are clean. The spin is great, leaving clothes just damp for speedy drying in Duet Dryer.
Review Title: OK Washer | Review by
I bought this washer for my winter home a couple of months ago. It has a delicate cycle but not a hand wash cycle which I really miss. The solution for me is to use a lingerie bag and the delicate cycle. So far that has worked. It also does not have an extra water feature, so if I have something really disgusting to wash, (usually dog related) I run it on the quick wash cycle before I wash it with other items. The quick wash is great for bathing suits and towels after pool time. Also, I have noticed things take longer to dry. Not sure if the washer doesn't remove as much moisture or the dryer doesn't work as well. Love the presoak cycle which seems to work really well.
Review Title: Not the best | Review by
I bought this 2 months ago and already have had to have a service call. I just find this so frustrating. I have no problem with the way it washes although it doesn't have the features I wanted (no one does any more - I had a GE that was way more automatic than anything on the market).
Review Title: Adequate | Review by
Purchased this machine and matching dryer a couple months ago, seems to wash fine however sears has had to be out 3 times to fix leaks between the back of the machine and water supply. The first time they told us that the hoses sent with the machine were poor, not sure what the other 2 explanations were, they did the initial installing themselves also.
Review Title: Better than the last Whirlpool we had! | Review by
Our last Whirlpool must have been a lemon as 2 years of light use and we were told it should not be fixed. SUCH a hassle to get a replacement even with the warranty but we finally did. So far so good. much quieter.

I bought this a month ago and so far my wife and I are enjoying it
Review Title: Another complete letdown. | Review by
after purchasing the earlier model in December 2012 and going through many changes and repair fees I felt that continuing on with the final repair of $847.00 I had no other option than to purchase this model. the only upside to this buy has been that it still fits on the platform as the older one, but why would you have to take away the interior light, reduce the size of the tub or least the appearance of it and why would you add steam to a washer that's main purpose is to wash items clean? I am short and have severe back issues which causes even more unnecessary stress and more pain having to physically probe the interior of the wash basin with my hands due to the darkness inside as compared to the older model that was checked visually. after the demise of this mismatched pair you can be sure that I will find other products without so many useless features, basically go back what the machine was meant to .........maintain my familys' clothing and household linen,etc..
Review Title: very noisy | Review by
Bought the Duet because we wanted to buy American. At our last house we had a Samsung front load washer. We learned an expensive lesson. This machine is ridiculously load. Spin cycle sounds like a jet plane landing. Unfortunately Home Depot would not take it back so we are stuck.
Review Title: Piece of Junk | Review by
Machine delivered on 01/10/15 did two loads of clothes, third load did not drain or spin. It appears this is a common problem with this front load washer.
Review Title: Very Disappointed!! | Review by
I bought this washer and dryer set. I have had nothing but problems with both of them. Very unsatisfied. I have only had it for four months and have had a repair man here nearly every two-three weeks and now the main power board is broke on my washer. Definetly DO NOT recommend!!
Review Title: Needs repair in less than a month of use | Review by
We bought this washer less than a month ago and it has already stopped working twice. It doesn't finish the cycle. I was able to open the door but the clothes were sopping wet. I reran the cycle and it worked. A week later the same thing happened to my husband. I have heard all of the appliances these days have poor quality so I have been hesitant to replace anything but I had to replace my washer. I tried to get what I was told was the best quality. I didn't expect this washer to last as long as my last one but I thought it would last longer than a month.
Review Title: Disgruntled | Review by
I purchased this washing machine a month ago, and it would be the worst appliance that I ever bought, except that I also bought the matching dryer at the same time. The wash cycle for a normal load is supposed to be 43 minutes. Instead, the actual wash time is closer to an hour and a half. Plus, while the clothes come out of the washing machine dryer, because the spin cycle is more powerful, this does not translate into a shorter time in the dryer. In addition, the clothes are no cleaner, but are more wrinkled, and the colors seem to have faded. I am very disappointed in this product. It does not work as well as my 10-year old washing machine, which I replaced when my dryer broke.
