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

  • 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
  • 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

    Use Delay Wash to begin the cycle up to 6 hours later and save even more during off peak times when utility rates may be lower
  • Drain/Spin Option
  • On/Off Extra Rinse Option
  • Pre-Wash Option

  • Door Window
  • Child Lockout
  • 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
  • Optional Storage Pedestals
    Whirlpool brand offers an ergonomic solution for its front-load washers and dryers to help reduce bending, stooping, or arching. 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.
  • Optional Laundry Tower
  • Optional Laundry Worksurface
    Convert your washer & dryer top into a seamless surface to sort, treat & fold. Helps contain spills for easy cleanup. The innovative mat design is stain resistant to help it stay looking new longer. The SpillGuard™ surface also helps contain liquids and eases cleanup, preventing a small spill from becoming a large mess. Keep small laundry items handy. Three rear channels with an easy-to-clean surface provide a convenient spot for dryer sheets and stain sticks. The backguard also prevents items from falling behind machines.

      Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load Ocean Blue Washer:

      We use the washer at least every other day. We were constrained in our choices because we had to buy a stackable washer & dryer, but still wanted full capacity machines. These fit the bill perfectly. Plus we love the (discontinued) color.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was on time and efficient. The guys also made sure to explain various features, etc. to us.

      Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load White Washer:

      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.

        With the drawer under the unit, the unit is at a great height. There is little to no bending down to load/empty the units.

          Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load White Washer:

          The washer cleans clothes well and uses much less water than my older washer did. The washer really spins and used to shake open the pedestal drawer (that the washer was installed on). However as soon as I put some detergent and other items in the pedestal drawer, this was no longer a problem.

            Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load White Washer:

            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.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was prompt and professional. My back door had to be taken off to get the units into the basement. The last time that happened, there was damage to the door frame, but the ABT delivery team had the door off, the units in the basement and the door back on quicker than a jackrabbit and no damage at all. They had the units set up and running in less than 1/2 hour. I have not had to use customer service, but if I do, I am sure they will be as polite and professional as all the other areas have been.

            Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load White Washer:

            This is a great washer. I bought the fullsize for our country home and this sport model for our city apartment. The only negative is the detergent/bleach/fabric softner loader. The bleach is very hard to pour in without splashing and making a mess. You run the risk of getting it on yourself and ruining what you are wearing. And it's not clear how to use powdered detergent with color-safe bleach. I do like the stacking feature which we did use. You need to buy the stacking bracket.
