I exchanged a highly rated machine which took forever to wash clothes and *they didn't smell clean! This machine is fast, easy to use and clothes are truly April Fresh! The spin is amazing...clothes are just damp when cycle is done. The machine "remembers" the setting so you aren't starting over every time. I just love this washer. I highly recommend it.

Better for not-so-dirty households

I've had this washer for over a year now and I can't say I love it, but I have gotten better at using it and so it will work for now. My biggest gripe with this machine is the lack of water it uses. The water level is very low on most cycles and just plain not enough on others. The concept was designed with efficiency in mind, but if I have to run some loads twice to make sure the clothes get clean that is not efficient at all. My household is a messy one (2 boys and 1 plumber) so I need my clothes to be CLEAN. This washer barely puts out enough water to reach the bottom of the door so I'm not always confidant my clothes have been thoroughly washed. Stains are also a big problem because there is usually not enough water in the drum to get them out so my whites are dingier and I have to hand wash badly stained items. Overall, this washer performs as designed, but it does not work for me. Also, the loads are very long ones which nullify my water savings.

Comments about Whirlpool Duet WFW94HEXW White Front Load Washer:
Great washer. Everything works as advertised. I especially like the fan dry feature to keep clothes fresh after washing is complete. I'm also blown away by how dry the clothes are after the strongest spin dry cycle...wow! A keeper for sure.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Whirlpool Duet Washer
from Placentia, CA
I love my new front load Duet washer. It is exceptionally easy to use, and the front load on the pedestal makes it very easy on my back. My clothes come out fresh and clean with each wash. I also love the steam cycle that helps sanitize wash done for ill family members and my animals. I feel my machine is sanitized for the next use.
Replacing a 32-year old washer is hard to do
from Los Angeles County, CA, United States
We have had our new washer just shy of 2 months and really wonder why we didn't do it sooner (yes, the previous washer/dryer came with the house back in 1982 and only had one service call when someone accidentally knocked a hinge off the dryer door). Our clothes and linens look and smell noticeably cleaner. I love all the settings, and how easy they are to control. I think it is great that you can add an item to a front loading machine (this was an issue back when I went to the laundromat). My favorite feature though is what I call the "lazy setting", where if you cannot get to the wash when it is done, it will tumble and fan the clothes for up to six hours. My only issue has been when I tried to wash a bathmat by itself and it came out sopping wet. I called the helpline and learned that you really cannot wash (or dry) a single item because of the sensors (which my old machine lacked). Adding a couple of towels with the bathmat resolved the problem. The other thing I've had to adjust to is running a cleaning cycle monthly and remembering to clean any water left in the rubber gasket around the door. I keep a towel on top of the machine just for this purpose. So far, so good.

I was skeptical of a front loader, but it has really proved itself! I have a family of 6 and it is big enough to accommodate big loads of jeans. Also love the steam option, which really gets the extra dirty items very clean.
Cleans great - Water efficient
from Hartsville, SC, United States
Love my new washer. Clothes come out clean and with little water remaining which helps them dry faster. Attractive, easy to use and pedestal makes it easy to load and unload.
from Houston, TX, United States
I purchased this about 2 mo ago with the dryer complement but this washer leaks detergent through the door and the clothes don't come out soft, they feel like no softener was added. I would have purchases a top load if one had been available
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
MY BFF -MY WHIRLPOOL DUET FRONT LOAD WASHER
from Western new york
Have had a WHIRLPOOL DUET FRONT LOAD WASHER for over 10 years. Just upgraded to the steam version. I couldn't be more pleased with all the new features. The DUET is the most dependable appliance I've ever owned. I wash between 3 to 10 loads a day and it just keeps going! It cleans beautifully, spins out all the water, and is gentle on the fabric. My clothes don't look worn or faded despite the continual laundering. Of course the added bonus of that huge tub is that I can wash enormous comforters or bulky rugs and everything comes out clean and in perfect shape. Just like a best friend, my DUET has never failed me!!
I bought this four months ago and absolutely love this washing machine. It washes great and has some great features such as an automatic fan that comes on when the wash cycle is complete. This comes in handy especially if you are not able to take the clothes out right away. This way the clothes dry a little so they still smell fresh when you do put them in the dryer. I have left clothes overnight in my old washing machine in the past and had to rewash them because they had a moldy smell.
Terrific Washer with lots of choices
from Clarksburg, MD, United States
I purchased this dryer and have used it for the past 7 weeks with only a couple of issues. ALL THE ISSUES WERE MY FAULT FOR NOT READING THE DIRECTIONS FIRST! I also read many reviews and can tell you many of the negative issues are things I experienced because I did NOT read the instructions first. Error codes, detergent dripping out the front door, rug left soaking wet after rinse cycle. Now that I have read the instructions and now that I know which detergent to use, how much to put in, what NOT to do and what cycle to choose, it works like a charm. I am happy with my choice. If you experience a problem, look at the manual before you complain. It is probably because you are not following the manufacturer instructions.

I got this about 4 months ago, had a problem to where the water would not drain but it seemed to correct itself
