    We have had our washer since May and absolutely love it and all of the features that it comes with. This is our first front-loader and it's capacity is great, I wouldn't go back to a top load again after this, and I should also mention that we are able to extend our use of detergent for so long, we have only purchased soap twice since we have bought it almost 6 months ago... The only con we have is that we can't wash our dogs blankets which are too hairy and clog the drain in it... Plus the one time (and last time) we did this we felt scared we were going to ruin the machine, otherwise it's super durable for everything else and absolutely love the steam cycles!

    Have had this unit for 6 weeks and it has already had two service calls!! We installed it and ran 4 small loads with no issues, week later go to use it and nothing, dead. Called service,got tech out, control unit board dead, order part, (another week) service came installed, dryer works again. ran three loads next day. Again no issues, ran flawless. Then four days later dryer is dead, no response. Called service, came out, found the control panel now is bad, order part, now waiting for part and service to again fix it. So recap, we got this unit, ran normal ,died, fixed, ran normal, died, now again we are without use of this unit which is sad cause when it runs, its a fantastic machine but I fear we have a lemon ( I do not use this term easily) and will not be happy with it based on quality. When installing the pedestal, we could hear screws or something inside rattling inside so maybe its a ground wire or something has came loose. Frustration and not having a dryer that works has been most painful. Hope this next service call will be last.

    Was purchased by my wife as a washer and dryer pair. Very simple to use, quick, quiet and efficient. To early to tell if they will hold up but I get the feeling they will do fine.

    Great features. Love the wrinkle reducer!

    Comments about Whirlpool Duet WED97HEXL Lunar Silver Electric Dryer:

    My old whirlpool dryer finally broke after trying to fix it several times. I decided to get a new dryer and was excited to see all the new options that the dryer had. I have had the dryer 2 weeks and so far I love it. My house is getting older and I need to start replacing appliances. Hopefully it will just be one appliance at a time. :)

    I purchase this dryer to go along with my washer I was replacing. I never knew that a dryer could have so may options. The steam feature is fantastic. The energy savings is wonderful. I wish I would have purchased sooner.
