We have 5 children and really put this machine to the test. It does a fine job with whites, jeans, and other loads varying from slightly dirty to - well, sick kids. The allergen cycle is also helpful since most of our family has allergies of one type or another - and it is also helpful for sanitizing clothing or bedding when kids are sick. One weakness is that it seems as any cleaning appliance - dishwasher or clothes washer (this is our second front loader) - goes more 'Eco,' the cycles take much longer. A 'heavily soiled' load of jeans, with extra rinse and deep cleaning options selected will take over two hours. That said, this machine is flexible enough to handle loads ranging from delicate "unders," to sheets and blankets, all the way up to Firefighter bunkers! [With an empty cleaning cycle after the turnouts.] Overall this does its job very well, especially considering we easily run 14 loads a week!

We had a Duet washer bought in 2002 we liked it and have always used HE soap, but recently it was not getting clothes clean, so we bought new Duet washer. We love the design and the jingle it plays when finished and the light up dial, and the pedalstal drawer and easy to unload , but we noticed that the clothes came out smelly and dingy or smelled of soap and the length of time for one wash is well over one hour. We tried extra rinse, we tried less soap, there are 4 pages of troubleshooting pages in the manual. Apparently washing clothes has become rocket science. We returned the washer and got a top load non HE Whirlpool(we like Whirlpool)which washes clothes in half the time and comes out clean. Maybe in 10 years, when time for a new washer, the HE technology will work, but for now we need a washing machine that gets the clothes clean.

So much better!

Comments about Whirlpool Duet WFW94HEXW White Front Load Washer:
We had a 5 year old GE front loader washer and matching dryer. The cycles took forever, and we offer had to repeat cycles to spin or dry clothes. I love my new Whirlpool set. I also no longer get the must odor that I had with my previous set. Love them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best washer ever purchased
from Calumet Township, MI, United States
Quiet and very large! Can wash king size comforter!
Enjoying this machine
I purchased this washer in January and it has been faithfully running 10+ loads each week since. I really enjoy the energy efficiency and cost savings involved! My water bill is lower and I'm buying 1/4 of the detergent that I used to - and my clothes are still coming out clean! The only caveat that I would share is that for the slower spin cycles, either don't use fabric softener and/or use the extra rinse cycle - otherwise even if you use a tablespoon of the stuff, I've found that the clothes felt sticky when I went to drip dry them. Overall I'm very pleased with this machine and have been suggesting it to everyone I know!

Very nice washing machine
By Maria Z

I had a Whirlpool Duet at my previous home and loved it and decided to get the same brand but newer model this time. I have not used the new model many times yet but I really love the flexibility of having the eco boost and steam options. My clothes are coming out very nice and clean as they did with the other Duet that I owned. I love the front load because my clothes do not seem to be damaged from repeated washings as much as they did with the conventional washing machines I have used in the past. I really do love the automatic dispenser that comes with this newer model.
This washer has it all!!
from Salinas, CA, United States
This washer is wonderful. I replaced a 12 year old Duet model. I was happy about owning that model, however I am super happy, absolutely ecstatic, with this model. It spins faster than my old model. The clothes come out very dry. I am very happy with the results. The pleasant musical tunes are icing on the cake
Preformance meets high tec

From the exterior beauty to the large interior drum, this front load washer makes laundry a joy! Our clothes look great. I LOVE the chime alert vs the annoying buzz of traditional washers.
