Whirlpool Duet HT Front Load Black Washer, Model WFW9400SBK

Video Demonstrations:
(Click hyperlink text to view)

Wash 16 pairs of jeans in a single load with half the water and energy.* This Duet HT® washer offers 14 cycles and 6th Sense™ technology with intuitive controls. Dynamic Stability Control and a 6-point suspension system reduces vibration. *Various sizes, compared to a traditional top-load washer.

Features:

  • ENERGY STAR® Qualified
  • Ultra Capacity Plus
  • 6th Sense™ Technology
    As soon as the wash cycle is started, Duet® and Cabrio™ washers use various sensors to determine the size of the load and precisely how much water is needed to clean it. Heat sensors then monitor the temperature, and make sure water is warmed gradually to make cleaning enzymes optimally effective. Suds sensors also work to prevent oversudsing in the low water wash system
  • Direct Inject Wash System
    A stain-removing shower of concentrated detergent deep cleans large loads and delicate garments, ensuring thorough cleaning
  • Care Control Temperature Management
    Care Control Temperature Management uses built-in sensors to monitor wash water and ensure it's warm enough to dissolve detergents and cool enough to ensure proper fabric care
  • Quiet Wash Plus Noise Reduction
    Innovative noise reducing technology brings the beauty of silence to the laundry room. Choose a washer with the quiet wash package that meets your needs; Ultra Quiet Wash, Quiet Wash Plus and Quiet Wash. All three packages are remarkable for what they don't do - make noise
    • Ultra Quiet Wash: Our quietest wash system ever. Strategically-placed, sound absorbing materials on the front, sides and bottom of the washer cabinet, along with a quieter hose design, gives you the flexibility to operate the washer wherever and whenever without disruption
    • Quiet Wash Plus: Sound-absorbing materials on the front, sides and bottom of the cabinet help keep operational sounds inside the washer and out of your daily life
    • Quiet Wash: Helps reduce operational noise with a sound-absorbing pad on the front of the washer cabinet
  • Stainless Steel Wash Basket
    The interior of the washer features a stainless steel basket that resists odors, rusting, or chipping. It's smooth enough to gently handle fabrics and durable enough to stay looking new
  • Built-In Water Heater
  • 14 Factory Pre-Set Cycles and Options
  • Add-A-Garment Feature
    The convenient Add-A-Garment light illuminates on the control panel for the first 8 minutes of the wash cycle. This gives a convenient reminder that forgotten items can still be added to the load in progress and still receive the same effective cleaning
  • Auto Soak & Pre-Wash Cycles
  • Bulky Items Cycle
    The specially-designed cycle is ideal for cleaning bulky items like comforters, sleeping bags, down jackets or pillows, all of which fit easily into the wash basket
  • Clean Washer Cycle
    This special Clean Washer cycle helps keep the stainless steel basket and drum clean of detergent buildup and odor
  • Delicate Cycle
    Select a Delicates Cycle when cleaning delicate or knit items. A reduced agitation speed and low spin speed provide needed fabric care without sacrificing cleaning performance
  • Hand Washables Cycle
    The Handwashables cycle uses extra low, intermittent agitation to mimic washing in the sink for delicate care of hand wash garments
  • Heavy Duty Cycle
    A faster spin speed coupled with the Direct Inject system works to remove the toughest stains from the toughest and heaviest fabrics
  • Normal/Casual Cycle
  • Quick Wash Cycle
  • Sanitary Cycle
    The internal water heater warms the wash water to 153 degrees F., a temperature hot enough to eliminate 99.999% of harmful bacteria. Use of the sanitary cycle can eliminate the need for bleach to disinfect and sanitize certain types of laundry
  • Silk Cycle
  • Whitest Whites Cycle
    Heated wash water, coupled with the accuracy of the Smart Bleach™ dispensing system, helps ensure loads of whites receive optimal cleaning performance
  • Wool Cycle
  • Adjustable End-of-Cycle Signal
  • 5 Temperature Selections
  • Delay Wash Feature
    A delayed wash of up to twelve hours lets laundry be done in off-peak hours, when energy savings may be even more, or just at a later time when it is more convenient to switch the load to the dryer
  • Drain/Spin Option
  • On/Off Extra Rinse Option
  • Rinse and Spin Option
  • 4-Tray Prewash, Detergent, Bleach, Fabric Softener Dispenser
  • Automatic Water Level Control
    Built-in sensors regulate the amount of water used to match the size of the load so that only the absolute minimum water needed is used. With this efficient feature, the Duet® washer can save up to 23 gallons of water per load
  • 1,200 RPM Maximum Spin Speed
  • 6-Point Self-Leveling System
  • Variable-Speed Motor
  • Easy View Door Window

Worked ok for 5 years

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Whirlpool Duet HT Front Load Black Washer:

I bought this 5 years ago, from the beginning I was not happy with it.
1) If you did a single cycle the clothes would have particles from the soap. For best results you had to do a pre-wash cycle
2) After 5 years of use one of the bearings went bad, and on the spin cycle it would make a very loud metal scratching noise
3) The rubber that seals the door, a piece broke and the door would not close properly, so that water would spill out

Great product with fixable hick-ups

By 

from Maryland

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Duet HT Front Load Black Washer:

The previous owners had this washer - so I racially bought it used. At first it smelled but once I learned to keep the door open after washing, the smell went away completely. It has had an f20 error every few months and I'd have to keep rehashing stuff just to make it forget the error. Last week I had someone from whirlpool come and look at it and he fixed it! Completely fixed. I was really impressed and him fixing it was way cheaper than buying a new whirpool!

Worked well until it died

By 

from Neenah, wi

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Duet HT Front Load Black Washer:

We got this machine right about 9 months ago. It has worked extremely well. After nine months of using it about twice a week one day we went to use it and it simply would not turn on. Luckily it is covered under warranty and we are currently waiting for a part. However I'm a bit nervous that it failed so early because our warranty will expire in just a couple more months.

The function of the machine is excellent, and perhaps this failure is a relatively isolated incident, but it is very worrisome that has happened relatively early in the machines life.

This is for this model only- Not for Whirlpool as a whole.

By 

from Kenosha, WI

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Duet HT Front Load Black Washer:

Had to have several service calls for different minor things. The biggest was that I had to sit near my washer to change to hot and cold hoses back and forth for my cold wash. It was not recognizing the cold wash.
I was told I would have to replace the board with was $$$$$. This of course was after the warranty. I called Whirlpool and they wouldn't do anything for me. Finally 5 years later I just couldn't babysit the washer any more and set out to buy a new one. I called Whirlpool once more and they were wonderful. No hesitation or problems. I told them what had happened, which they had no record of my previous calls, and they rectified the problem. I think the first calls I made were handled by a poor employee.
I received my new washer today and can't wait to use it.
Over all I am very happy with Whirlpool. I guess this model just was faulty.

loads of features yet user friendly

By 

from Tampa bay area

Comments about Whirlpool Duet HT Front Load Black Washer:

I love flexibility in a product but extremely dislike complicated systems. This washer has it over all others in my book. Loads of great features that you want to use and don't have to go back to school to understand.
Would have gotten 5 stars had the door hinge
not broke a couple years out of warranty.
