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.

One Whirlpool replace another
from Kennebunk , Maine
Our old Whirlpool washer had given us many years of quality service , so when it came time to replace it.....Whirlpool again. Stick with the best. Easy to use and understand controls, almost silent operation and pleasant signals when done make our new Whirlpool better than the last one.
A very good washer
By Blue eyes

I bought this as a stackable unit and it is the best washer we have ever used. It cleans much better then my 4 yr old top loader. It is quiet, the controls are very easy to use and the tones used to alert you when a load is done are pleasant not that annoying buzzer. I have, and will continue to recommend this washer to friends.

best washer I have ever owned. Saves water & detergent.
Many Repairs! Seal inside door stinks!
from Bridgeview, IL
The seal around the door stinks. You can buy products to clean it, or clean with bleach, but really it is a pain in the neck. If you don't clean it, it gets moldy. The drain always gets stuffed with infant socks, money, or any little thing you leave in a pocket-an empty candy wrapper etc. and then either you pay someone to clean out the drain because you don't know what is wrong, or with much effort and special tools you clean out the drain yourself after taking apart the machine, and it smells terrible and makes a HUGE mess. Before you buy, check out you tube videos online on how to fix this. Do yourself a favor, and just don't buy this machine. Who wants a stinky machine that breaks down all the time? Yuck.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Franklin Park, IL, United States

I love, love, love, my new Whirlpool Duet Steam Front Load Washer
from Southern Utah
I just replaced my old Whirlpool Duet with this fabulous new one. I love the style, the ease of operation, and how clean my clothes come out. I just washed a big comforter and it came out perfect. Thank you Whirlpool for making such a fabulous product !!!

I brought this over two months ago and have used the washer heavy. I had a lot to catch up plus washed heavy blanks ready for winter use. The washer has performed wonderfully. I did not realized how bad my old washer was until I used this one. Items came out white and mostly dried. The machine is quite and I love the options. It is a good washer. I am glad I with with a whirlpool duet steam.
Quiet, Efficient, Convenient.
I am so glad I have the "Load and Go" feature on this washing machine - it makes doing laundry go faster and It makes it easier for my teenage son to do his own laundry! The "Sanitize" feature on the washer and dryer have alleviated my husband's allergies so much that he is not snoring as much at night!
from California, United States
We purchased this machine around a month ago along with the companion dryer. I love it. It is efficient and effective. It takes less time to run than my previous machine and uses less electricity and water, and yet the laundry comes out cleaner. I have only good things to say about the machine.
