Whirlpool Duet Sport WFW8400TB Black Front Load Washer, Model WFW8400TBK

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® Qualified - Tier 3
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Delay Wash Feature
    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
  • Rinse and Spin Option
  • 3-Tray Detergent, Bleach, Fabric Softener Dispenser
    Automatic detergent, bleach and fabric softener dispensers give you the freedom and confidence to load and go

    The Duet Sport® washer can save up to 23 gallons of water per load. 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
  • 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

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 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.

Definitely NOT worth the money....problems abound

By 

from Kansas

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load White Washer:

The claim that you can wash 12 pairs of jeans in a single load - not adult jeans, not if you want them clean. At the most we can wash 6 pair of adult jeans (and we're not large people) or the jeans don't get clean. As for the plastic covering the buttons you push to start, etc this machine - yes, it didn't take a couple of years before the plastic wore through and the button is exposed. We have had the washer and dryer (match set) since Oct 2007 (it is now Sept 2016) and we've had the service person out here multiple times for the washer. There's a leak and it's still not fixed. The seal at the front was replaced but come to find out that's not where the leak originates - that still hasn't been determined. So we have a pan under the washer and must dump the leaked water after every load. This was an expensive machine and we bought it because - we were told front loading washes better and with less detergent (NOT true as far as we've experienced), you can wash 12-15 pairs of jeans in a single load (NOT true for us if you want the clothes clean), and it's very quiet (not true...still as noisy as our old Kenmore). I noticed there is a class action suit against Whirlpool for a "mold" issue - we would probably have that problem too but I keep the door open after every wash so the tub dries out. This was something I read that you have to do with front loaders - no more closing the door when a load is running. The water leak is now a constant problem and after spending several hundred dollars and still not fixed we've decided to look into a new washer....and definitely NOT a whirlpool. Our model is WFW8400TW00....for those who want to compare complaints.

Awesome and Efficient!

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load White Washer:

My wife and I got this washer and dryer set back in 2007 and love how efficient it is. We have used this with 3 kids and our stuff since the day we bought it and have only had minor issues with the drain that needed to be cleaned out when some random baby sock ended up down there. This thing rocks! We can't praise the efficiency enough, especially using the HE detergents. If you are in the market, make this your choice.

Died after 7 years

By 

from Forest Hill, Maryland

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load White Washer:

Needed major repair at seven years old. I expected a longer life from a Whirlpool. Repairman is hard to find and is extra expensive if the dryer is stacked on top. More cost efficient to replace than repair if stacked with dryer.

I have loved this washer!

By 

from Boones Mill, VA

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load White Washer:

I can say that I have really liked using this machine! I've owned it for about 10 years now & never had a problem with it, except for having to change the bellow. Yes, occasionally I would have to open the drain & remove a few coins, or a bobby pin, even a small allen wrench once, but this was not the machines fault but mine. If this had happened in an old machine with an agitator I'd probably have ended up with a hole in the tub! The drain is very easy to get to, this is a very simple fix. This washer spins my clothes almost completely dry!

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!
