Overall we have been very satisfied with our washer. Our water bill has been cut in half because it uses so much less water. Our electric bill has also decreased because the washer is very efficient in spinning the water out of the laundry, reducing dry times. With the reduction of our energy costs this washer will pay for itself in a little over two years time. It also is large capacity, fitting our king size comforter without the fear of tearing up the washer or the comforter, and also increasing the size of regular laundry loads means i am not doing laundry as often.

Dislikes that we have - that sometimes the washer does not fully dissolve the laundry detergent packs (have tried several brands, all for he machines) and -that the touch panel can be overly sensitive (just brushing against the washer can change the settings if I don't use the settings lock).

Overall this has been a great investment for us. I would recommend to a friend.

I'm not sure where to start. So first I find out I need to leave the door open and get it open soon after washing. The first thing I think of is my $80 dollar coffee pot has more advanced technology than this $1200 washing machine. Why can't the door pop open when load is finished and a small "fan" dry out the seal around door???
Next, holy cow this thing is loud, and it was supposed to be fairly quiet, but I guess that was a relative rating.
I do believe it does a better job cleaning than our old HE top load, but not to the level of the old style washing machines.
Next we find out about suds and drainage errors. Always use HE detergent and even tried different brands. Sunday it took 10 hours to do 1 load of laundry, as I tried to wash, took out, ran 2 clean washer cycles (1 afresh and 1 bleach), put load back in, took out, empty wash cycle, put back in and still took several attempts to get load through a complete cycle. How can there be any energy savings when the pump runs all the time, even though the washer is empty? I don't expect this machine to make it 1 year, as the pump will be burned out and hopefully it doesn't get hot and do more damage.
I guess this probably won't get published, but you asked for the review and I'm just being honest.

Great Features & Cleans Clothes Excellently

By 

from Chicago, IL, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Chrome Shadow Steam Front Load Washer:

I was a bit intimidated at first with all the features as this is my first HE washer but found it was very user friendly. Washes the great & was everything I expected. The only thing I don't like is it takes a long time to wash & you have to make sure that you clean it at least once a month. I also wipe down the seal, door, & soap dispenser after each use to avoid mold as I was told HE front loader washers are susceptible to getting & then your clothes will smell.

        I just purchased this machine and already notice an improvement from my old machine. What I especially like is how well my clothes are spun dry. I know as I continue to try the different features I will improve my laundering skills and save my clothes on wear and tear.

                    Recently purchased this model. It was my first front loading washer. It was hard to spend so much on a washer, but it works so much better than any other washer I've had. I actually enjoy using it because of all the features and the alarm tones are so pleasant compared to others!

It's super gentle with my delicates! Overall I am very very pleased with our purchase!!
