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 had this washer for just over a year and have already had to have a repair man in 3 separate times for the same problem. It seems whirlpool thought that their products filtration system was so superior that they decided to put the filter inside of the washer - where no laymen would be able to reach it. I can not even wash mens full length socks in this washer without using a washer bag because the "Superior filtration System" allows them to get into the filter. Not to mention children's underwear and socks. No big deal you say - just put them in a washer bag. However, things do not get very clean in a washer bag and it is socks and underwear and small dish towels that have to go in it. Things that need a proper wash job. When the repair man comes it involves pulling the machine out and taking off the entire front of the washer - which involves several different types of screwdrivers in order to achieve this. He then needs to take the spring off - which requires two people to put back on and about 1/2 of his time to do this - just to empty the filter. HOW RIDICULOUS!! I have owned several washers in my lifetime 5 to be exact and I have never gotten anything caught in the filter. Whirlpool has seriously let me down - and I will not buy another whirlpool product because of my experience with this one. Not to mention the Precision Dispense Ultra unit barely dispenses any detergent and your laundry comes out smelly. I have been able to get over this design flaw by just putting liquid in the dispensing unit. Not a great feature they should be advertising. Thanks for your time and I hope you take my review into consideration before purchasing this product.

Easy to use. Precision dispense is great!!

By Lm bklyn

from Brooklyn, NY, United States

I'm pretty happy with my new washing machine. Two problem I have is cycles are very long (59 minutes for a regular cycle). There's also no small load feature so if I'm washing 2 sweaters the cycle is still 59 minutes.

Value packed

By Nickname12

from Glenview, IL, United States

This Duet front load washer has performed very well. We have owned it since May 2014 and have not had any problems. On average we run 1-2 loads laundry per day so it has had a fair workout on nearly all the cycle options. I particularly like the auto detergent dispense feature that takes the guess work out of that process and is less wasteful than I was. A few things to remember 1) run the refresh or other recommended cleaning through the washer when requested, 2) clean the door every so often (per instructions) or it may leak a little until you clean it and 3) we leave our door ajar to avoid any moister build-up between loads.

Bad Machine

By Supereng1

from Denton, TX, United States

Bought theWFW96 machine and the second load of laundry the machine started leaking. Hole in the dischange tube inside the machine and one of the stablizer shocks was broken. I returned the machine and purchase the WFW94 and could not be more happy with it.

Duet is King

Second Duet I have owned this one is even better than the first. We got 11 years of hard work out of the other and thought it would be best to put the money into a new one.

Irish Washer-Woman's Best Friend

By Cindy8202

from Quincy, FL, United States

In May I bought this matching washer/dryer set along with the matching pedestals. This washing machine is an absolute wonderment! We recently had an illness in our family and I used the special sanitize cycle and felt it contributed to the quick recovery and lack of "sharing" of germs. I also am so pleased with the fact that it seems to use much less water - while at the same time providing excellent cleaning of all items. Because it spins so well, the drying times are considerably shortened, resulting in electricity cost savings. Lastly, I would like to comment on the fact this machine provides a cycle to clean the machine - - - and notifies you when it is time to do so!!! My last set was bought in 1999 and I anticipate this one will last as long or longer - I LOVE IT ! ! !

Great duet

By Saraw54

from Pittsburgh, PA, United States

This is the second duet we have owned, and I am so thrilled with this new one...I love that a load of clothes can be done in 26 minutes and come out almost dry and only need 34 minutes in the dryer!....I can now do a load of clothes in an hour and wouldn't use any other machine. I am short and love that the pedestal comes in so handy and don't have to bend over and reach for anything. Great purchase again!
