Whirlpool WFW8400TE Duet Sport Front Load Ocean Blue Washer - WFW8400TBU

Wash 12 pairs of jeans in a single load! (Various sizes.) This front-load washer combines capacity with water and energy savings for an efficient fabric care experience. In fact, it uses less than half the water and energy, compared to conventional top-load washers. The Deep Clean wash system handles your toughest stains, even on your delicates, thanks to the Delicate/Hand Wash cycle. And with an innovative 6-point suspension system, vibration and noise are reduced so you can confidently install it on a second floor.

Features:

  • ENERGY STAR® & CEE Tier III Qualified
  • Ultra Efficient Design
    The Duet Sport® washer uses 64% less water and 72% less energy in every load, compared to average traditional top load washers
  • Ultra Capacity
  • Deep Clean System
    The Anti-Escape valve ensures the maximum concentration of detergent is used in the wash cycle, while the Care Control System keeps temperatures optimal for detergent enzymes to work
  • 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
    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
  • 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
  • 10 Factory Pre-Set Cycles and Options
  • Auto Soak Cycle
  • Clean Washer Cycle
    This special Clean Washer cycle helps keep the stainless steel basket and drum clean of detergent buildup and odor

  • Heavy Duty Cycle
  • Normal/Casual Cycle
  • Quick Wash Cycle
    A Quick Wash cycle cleans small, lightly soiled loads that are needed in a hurry
  • 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
  • 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
  • Time Remaining Status Indicator
    A digital timer in the center of the control panel accurately shows the time remaining for every load
  • 4 Temperature Selections
  • Adjustable End-of-Cycle Signal
  • 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

  • Innovative Suspension System
    An innovative suspension system features 'shock absorbers' that cushion the motion of the tub and inner drum, reducing vibration and noise so that an upper floor installation is possible

Based on your height and laundry room needs, optional 10 in. and 15.5 in. pedestals make loading, unloading, and filling the dispensers easier. The 15.5 in. pedestal doubles as a storage drawer with a convenient sliding shelf to support your laundry basket.

I have owned various appliances and have never had any problems with Whirlpool items. My only complaint about this model (and it may be the new trend) is the length of the cycles. On the first load of whites I put in, I selected the "bright white" cycle and only found out after I turned it on that it took 2 hours. The sanitize cycle takes 3 hours. The normal cycle is 56 minutes, which is double the time of my old machine. Otherwise, I am very happy with the washer. The clothes get clean, the spin cycle gets out more water so the dying time is reduced and it is very quiet and energy efficient. The pros greatly exceed the cons.

The product works well and it is a benefit to the environment, but the necessity of using HE soap only is a challenge. Making sure you only add the right amount of detergent (or it over-suds and leaks) is stressful.
HE soap was a new concept for me and only those people with new washers are familiar with the requirement. It seems limiting.
I would recommend the product because it does clean well, and it is the wave of the future, but will miss the days of top load and of not worrying about suds levels.

Overall it gets the job done

By 

from PDX, OR

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load White Washer:

We got it 9 years ago. Since the very 1st day had some fault code & begun my appliance repairman career, part-time at home.
So far replaced 2-3 drain pumps, some water sensor, and now have issues with drum.
Also replaced baffle, since for years it was ripping our laundry and I didn't see any sharp edges in the drum.
Gotta keep that drain filter clean, well at least go there once in a while and clean up.
Overall washer is okay, but I wouldn't recommend to a friend who is not mechanically inclined.
So, basically if you looking for a washer that would keep you busy - this is the one. Also, if you like a hippy style with holes in your clothes - definitely get this model.
Hope this review helps

Great Machine!

By 

from Coarsegold CA

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load White Washer:

We bought this machine in 2007 and have not had any problems with it. We did some research first and discovered if you overload the machine, it will breakdown, so we don't. We also read how important it is to dry the machine after use to avoid mildew so we wipe the inside of the rubber seal and the glass door down after each use (takes about 15 seconds) then we leave the door open a few inches. We love this machine!

Not Happy!!!

By 

from Prairie Du Sac, WI

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load White Washer:

We purchased the stackable washer and dryer. We have had nothing but problems. Mother board went out,wiring issues, the clean washer cycle no longer works, and the unit is only 7 years old. We have spent over $1000 in repairs and parts. You may ask, why didn't we just replace it with a new machine. Unfortunately this model has been discontinued. So we now have a compatibility problem with the dryer. Which means we will have to replace both units. NOT HAPPY!!!

Most probelmatic washer I've owned

By 

from KY

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load White Washer:

I can't stand this washer and honestly will probably never buy another Whirlpool product because of it. For starters...you can never keep the thing smelling fresh. Even frequently running the clean cycle and the unit still smells like mildew after a few days. Then the mechanical problems start to happen almost immediately after the warranty expires. There has been an expensive repair each year since. From water pump to main board to rubber boot. It's always something with this thing.

Lasted seven years - not good

By 

from South Carolina

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load White Washer:

This machine ran well while it lasted. However, it suffered a main bus B overload (a.k.a. rear bearing failure) - a terminal condition according to the applientologists. Not worth the cost of repairing. We use our machines fairly heavily, but seven years is NOT good performance. Even more so when the high purchase price is taken into account.

Will never own another Whirlpool product

By 

from Auburn, AL

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load White Washer:

The magnetic door lock is a common problem seen on-line and for me. Constantly get the "F29" code on the machine and have to spend hours trying to get the door unlocked. Now the machine will shut off before a cycle is complete. I have always been a loyal Whirlpool customer but will NEVER purchase another product with the Whirlpool name attached.

Design Flaw

By 

from SC

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load White Washer:

I have had this washer for several years. I am happy with the performance of the washer, but after only 3 years the plastic covering the buttons has broken as has the start button. This has happened on both the washer and dryer. It is very expensive to replace.
I have always been brand loyal to Whirlpool because of their quality, but no more.

Not as good as expected

By 

from Ontario CA.

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load White Washer:

My sons Christmas gift to me 10 years ago and I have replaced the water pump 3 times already. I feel pump is to small for it. There is no trap to stop small things ie coins, bobby pins, ect from being sucked into pump and causing pump to burn out. Washer also tangles up the clothes so much its a struggle to remove clothes from washer and causing my clothes to be stretched all out of shape. Waste of hard earned money
