Whirlpool Duet Front Load Washer In Lunar Silver, Model WFW9550WU

Help save water, energy and money with this ENERGY STAR® qualified and CEE Tier III rated steam washer. This washer saves 74% water & 80% energy and is able to wash up to 18 pairs of jeans in a single load. Wash a load in just 17 minutes, the Industry's Fastest Wash Time! TumbleFresh™ option keeps clothes fresh with intermittent tumbling after the cycle completes and helps reduce the growth of odor-causing bacteria while preventing wrinkles from setting in.

Features

  • ENERGY STAR® Qualified: The ENERGY STAR® emblem signifies that the Duet® washer meets the requirements set forth by the Department of Energy for cleaning efficiency.
  • Ultra Capacity Plus
  • 3.8 Cu. Ft. Stainless Steel Wash Basket: Wash up to 18 pairs of jeans in a single load. You can clean larger, fewer loads to help save time and energy. Or take advantage of the ample space to wash bulky items like comforters, sleeping bags or dog beds.
  • Tier 3 Qualified
  • 6th Sense™ Technology: Measures the size of the load and determines how much water is needed to clean it. Sensors monitor the inlet temperature, gradually warming water to keep cleaning enzymes at optimal effectiveness. Plus, sensors prevent oversudsing in low-water systems.
  • Direct Inject Wash System: Penetrates stains and pretreats soils with a concentrated burst of detergent virtually eliminating the need to pretreat. The wash cycle begins only after the entire load has been treated.
  • Care Control Temperature Management: Adjusts the cold and hot water inlets to reach temperatures that are warm enough to dissolve detergents. Water is kept from overheating to help reduce shrinking and/or color bleeding.
  • 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: Resists odors, rust and chipping. The smooth surface helps protect delicate fabrics from snagging.
  • Built-In Water Heater
  • 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 Cycle
  • Clean Washer Cycle with Affresh®: Deep fills the washer to clean areas that low-water systems don't typically reach. All it takes is one cup of bleach.
  • 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 Wash Cycle: Uses extra low, intermittent agitation to mimic washing in the sink for delicate care of hand wash only 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
  • Sanitary Cycle: The internal water heater warms the wash water to a temperature hot enough to eliminate 99.9% 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: Raises water tempeatures and releases bleach or an oxygen-based cleaner at the optimal moment to enhance whitening performance.
  • Adjustable End-of-Cycle Signal
  • Delay Wash: Sets the washer to begin cleaning up to 16 hours later, during off-peak hours when utility rates may be lower, or when unloading the washer is more convenient.
  • Deep Clean Steam Option: Penetrates deep into fabric fibers, breaking down and dissolving stains like grass and grease without pretreating.
  • Drain/Spin Option
  • On/Off Extra Rinse 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.
  • 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.
  • 6-Point Suspension System: Shock absorbers, springs and electronic controls help redistribute the load automatically and minimize movement of the wash drum during the spin cycle. The result is less noise and vibration for laundry without disruption.
  • Variable Speed Motor
  • Easy View Door Window
  • Child Lockout: Door locks when cycle starts.
  • Automatic Door Lock
  • Brushed Chrome Door Ring
  • Audio Feedback
  • 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" and 15.5" pedestals make loading, unloading, and filling the dispensers easier.

We have owned the Whirlpool duet steam front-loading washer for about 6 months now, and we absolutely love it. We are a family of four, living in wet and muddy Oregon, with boy children who play outdoor field sports. Needless to say - we deal with a lot of muddy, grassy, really dirty clothing, towels, and shoes. So far this washer has truly been a godsend. I used to have to do four to five loads of laundry each day to keep up with laundry. Now I find myself waiting around for a day or two until I have enough laundry to do two or three full loads! I love it.

I always wash my sheets, towels, socks, underwear, and the boys white t-shirts using the deep steam clean option. A few stains which we had on our towels from before, which I never thought would come out, are now gone. Our towels and bedding look new again. Also, I do not wash those items using fabric softener, yet they come out super soft.

My husband is a big guy and so his jeans are also big and heavy. I used to be able to do just one or two pairs of his jeans per load in our old set. Now I do four pairs of my husbands jeans plus one or two of my boys jeans all at once. And they, too, come out soft and super clean. I don't even pretreat grass stains anymore like I did before.

The washer is very quiet, mostly, unless it is on a high spin cycle setting. We adjusted the feet because when the guy came to install it (Sear's guy's) I don't think they set it up right, and at first it was kind of noisy and knocking. Once we adjusted the feet ourselves, it's been super quiet and no knocking.

The washer is very simple to use but at first can be kind of intimidating if you've been using older top-loading machines for years like I had. I spent about two days studying the user's manual and just getting myself familiar with the machine. Now after these several months I feel very comfortable with it. Our kids even use the machine and, being boys, they really like the buttons.... of course. :)

I am concerned about the other reviews which expressed concern over parts breaking or wearing out after only about a year. I really hope that does not happen with ours. So far, so good, though.

I would - and have - recommend this washer and the matching dryer to families who need to do a lot of laundry and who have very dirty laundry. I don't think this set would be that great for single people or those without children. When our kids are grown we plan to pass this set on (if we still have it, hopefully we will) and purchase a smaller machine for when it's just my husband and I. But for now with our messy boys and our family this machine is perfect!

After 14 months the main tub bearing failed. Had a friend who bought the same model and his failed after 13 months. With the extended warranty plan I was offered a check for $629 because the repair was over $1100. I paid $1000 for the washer and $129 for the extended warranty. For $500 I get less than a year and a half use of a Whirlpool Washer.

        Complete Disaster

              Comments about Whirlpool Duet Front Load Washer In Lunar Silver:

              We bought this washer in 2011, to replace another Duet that was also only a few years old. Here we are, four years later, and we are experiencing a total breakdown - the seal leaks water out of the front; the drum is loose; and the bearings are shot. All need to be replaced. We have been extremely diligent about cleaning the machine and leaving the doors open to air it out as we were instructed by the manufacturer. It's not enough. We battle mold and stinky funk. We also have learned that front loaders should only use 1-2 TABLESPOONS of HE detergent so as not to gum up the seal and bearings. We know that these are common issues related to front loaders, but our problem with this washer extends beyond that to the company itself.

              We first contacted Whirlpool in late March 2015 about the breakdown less than four years after its purchase. We were highly encouraged to purchase the Repair Plus One plan for $380ish, which would cover parts, labor, and another year of warranty. Better than purchasing a new washer, right? Wrong. Total disaster. Our first Whirlpool-connected technician arrived two weeks later to diagnose the problem, and parts were ordered a week after that. FOUR+ WEEKS later, he returned on May 12 with only one of the three parts and stated he could not repair the machine without all the parts. Whirlpool would not let us out of the contract with this technician to reschedule with someone more competent after weeks of phone calls to them. Finally, on May 15, Whirlpool sent us an email saying the washer was too expensive to repair and they would either 1) send us a new washer in 3-4 WEEKS, or 2) cut us a check to use on our own. Needless to say, we took the money and ran to purchase a completely different brand. NEVER AGAIN will we buy a Whirlpool product.

              The reason for the two stars is that, yes, when it's working the washer is great. Just give it about four years and see what happens. Good luck everyone!

                                Could not be happier with this machine, replaced an older Duet Sport model. Super quiet with many cleaning settings to choose from. The steam option has proven itself to provide that extra cleaning power I was looking for. Overall a great product for the money.

                                      This is a replacement for another Duet washer. This one is much better. A few mor options than the old one, MUCH quieter, fits perfectly on our pedestal.

                                                  We bought our washer over a month ago and it works great. The spin cycle much better than our previous washer.

                                                        I have only had this dryer a few weeks, but so far it does the job nicely. One feature I would love to see added is a "touch up" button you can push without having to turn the dial, which would just run the dryer for 15-20 minutes (which could be adjusted with the up/down time buttons).

                                                              I bought this a month ago to replace one that I had in a rental unit. The first one lasted 9 years so it was only natural to select the same unit. This unit however was nicer than the first unit I had put in the rental, which my tenant where well pleased with. It is very economical to run and uses less water which saves on the septic drain field.
