Energy Star Rated - Yes

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.

This washing machine is just great. Not only are our clothes cleaner, they are begin treated more gently by this machine and the high spin speed gets the clothes dry enough that the dryer doesn't have to work as hard. The high efficiency and multiple settings are fantastic.

I have waited for 16 yrs for a front loader washer and decided that whirlpool would be the one.. what a mistake .. i should have taken it back that very day i recieved it which was my mistake.. I hate everything about this machine. I have had it for less than a year and have had 4 service calls with the detergent motor went out, it vibrates excessively and the service engineer says thats normal for front loaders. Well it isnt normal but there is nothing you can do about it when the engineer says its ok and they have to come out 3 times for the same problem to have it considered a lemon. Whirlpool definetly will never have my business again. Now the bearrings are going out ( they have a special bearrings team they have had so many problems with them going out). It is such a pain waitng for repairmen and taking my day off of work and getting nothing resolved. I hate this washer.. please do not buy.

        Comments about Whirlpool Duet Front Load Washer In White:

        This is my 2nd duet washer. The last one was great. It lasted 10.5 years with a household of 5 and washing nearly everyday it held up great and when I stacked the washer and dryer it gave me more room in my laundry room. This washer cleans even better the last one. All of my appliances in my house are now Whirlpool. The last longer than other brand names that I have owe and do a better job than more expensive brands. This is the "working man's brand". I love this washer because I can do more clothes at once and it saves money, time and water. If you have a family this is a MUST HAVE. It is worth EVERY PENNY!!!

            This machine has so many more features than my previous model. I haven't even checked them all out yet. I love the quick wash option for those times you really need something clean fast! And, I love that it is quiet. It even has the night quiet option, which I haven't used yet.

                      The 3.8 cu. ft. size works well for a 2-3 person household. We wash whites, jeans and causal loads once every 7-8 days. Wife's sister does her loads separate, about 2 per week. The wash setting allow you to change as desired. We have not used the steam setting yet, it was more of a nice to have for us.

                                  Whirlpool has done a fantastic job making a machine that does such a wonderful job with the least amount of effort. It is so efficient that the dryer runs less time also. I was a little concerned that the stingy amount of water would do the job. . .it did a better job than anything I have ever owned.
