Owned & used a Whirlpool Duet washer & dryer for the past eleven years and loved the performance. When I was ready to update to a new washer & dryer, I meticulously researched all brands and models. After completing my research I once again decided that Whirlpool had the best offerings. Purchased my unit (the Whirlpool 4.3 Cubic foot Duet Steam Front Load Washer with Precision Dispenser) in July and I have not been disappointed. The unit has great features and wash options and it is very easy to use. I love the precision dispenser because there is no need to fill the HE detergent for each load and it saves in the amount of detergent used over my older model. Clothes come out smelling fresh & clean and the amount of water used for each load has been significantly reduced. I use this machine a lot, 15-20 loads per week, and have had no issues in the almost 5 months I’ve had the unit. I would highly recommend it to anyone searching for a high quality home clothes washing machine.

I have purchased Whirlpools before and been very satisfied. This machine, however, has a terrible design. Despite cleaning monthly as instructed and leaving the doors open after each use, the plastic has gotten moldy and the machine leaves my clothes smelling terrible. Who wants to wipe down their washing machine after each use??? High maintenance!!! The pull out where the detergent goes gets mildew build up and needs to be cleaned regularly despite pulling it out and letting it air dry on top of my washer once I'm done with laundry. Yuck!!! Purchase at your own risk!!!

    Comments about Whirlpool Duet Steam White Front Load Washer:

    I did some pretty extensive research and this had great reviews. After a couple weeks of use, I could not be more pleased. The washer is very quiet and spins the lot he's, towels, etc so good that the dry cycle is less time. For example, my old machines would take approximately 2 + hours to wash and dry a large load of towels. This was dry cycle is done in 1.5 hours max. The auto soap dispenser is also a huge bonus!!

        I'm glad I did my research and purchased these! I needed a washer to get clothes clean since my husband works outside in dirt / grim / mud you name it. They come clean every time! They are very quiet when running. We have our washer / dryer stacked. They don't feel cheap and the precision dispenser for the soap is very handy. Well worth the money!

            I really enjoy this mean kicking Whirlpool. This is better than my old GE. Not only does the sounds of music comes in-play. But my clothes smell and feel cleaner. BUT JUST ONE THING, You have to push the door pretty hard to get it shut. The soft touch face panel, the gentle turn of the knob for settings and then the door. It's like the door does not belong to the washer. But hey, With that mush mean kicking high speed spinning cleaning, you might need to make sure that door is close tight. If you want a big tub. Here it is. If you want clothes clean. Here it is.

                  I love this machine, it's quite, has many functions I wanted and the inovative style is beautiful. The Presision Ultra automatic liquid dispenser is another plus. All the areas in the dispenser are clearly marked so too much product is never and issue.This washing machine is easy to use and if you needed to check on a procedure the written instructions are very easy to follow. I have been very happy with the performance for all types of laundering. I'm doing less ironing due to the great performance of this washer. It senses what type of laundering is needed without my having to press many buttons or rotate dials. Wish I could have had a machine like this years ago. In addition to all the above I'm saving on energy. Who could want more? Well maybe someone to do the folding for you.
