This are a very efficient washer/dryer combo. Both are extremely quiet and clean the clothes much more effectively than a typical top-loader. I installed both myself. I built my own pedestals. The washer needed very solid base to rest on. This was a challenge and I would probably recommend buying the pedestals to anyone else considering building their own. We spent about 25% of the cost of the pedestals, but it took a great deal of time to lock it into place. The dryer was very lightweight and easy to install. Good directions for the power connections. No cord was included though, but there are many 220V cords to choose, so that was fine. End of cycle buzzer is loud, but not terribly annoying. Great dryer & washer combo.

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.

Overall it gets the job done

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport WED8300SB Black Electric Dryer:
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

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!
from Prairie Du Sac, WI
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
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
from South Carolina
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 SP - Al.
from Auburn, AL
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.

Not as good as expected
By Unhappy mamma
from Ontario CA.
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
