Whirlpool Duet Steam 4.3 Cu.Ft. Chrome Shadow Front Load Washer, Model WFW94HEACS

Whirlpool Good Housekeeping Seal

Elevate fabric care and virtually eliminate pretreating. This Whirlpool® HE front load washer features Precision Dispense, which takes the guess work out of adding detergent, bleach and other additives by releasing them at the correct time during the cycle for optimal fabric care. Detergent mixes with water to penetrate fabrics and virtually eliminate pretreating. Plus, with the 12-Hour FanFresh® option with Dynamic Venting Technology® selected, you can tumble clothes for up to 12 hours after the cycle ends, so you can wash and dry a small load right in the washer. Cut down on the amount of laundry you do each week, with a 4.3 cu. ft. capacity, you can wash up to 20 pairs of jeans in a single load.

Features

Best care for your clothes with the cold wash cycle
Provides the best care for your clothes,* using adaptive wash actions and a concentrated solution of HE detergent and cold water to gently lift stains and soils from fabrics. *Among leading front load brands based on cleaning and gentleness.

Precision dispense
Penetrates stains and pretreats soils with a concentrated burst of detergent. The wash cycle begins only after the entire load has been treated.

12-hour fanfresh® option with dynamic venting technology®
When selected, a built-in fan automatically activates after the wash cycle is over, tumbling clothes for up to 12 hours so you can wash and dry a small load right in the washer.*
*Based on a 2-lb load of lightweight fabrics.

CEE Tier III Qualified
Based on the Consortium for Energy Efficiency qualified product listings--with Tier III being the most efficient. This model features advanced water & energy savings and may qualify for rebates from local utility companies.

EcoBoost Option
Get additional energy efficiency without giving up cleaning performance. This option lowers water temperature and increases the tumbling action to use less energy while still delivering great cleaning and gentle performance.

Allergen Cycle
The Allergen cycle has been tested to remove up to 95% of harmful allergens1 from your clothes.

Tap Touch Controls
The Tap Touch interface featured on select models brings high-tech style to your laundry room. It allows direct access to washer functions, and its sleek appearance enhances the appeal of any space.

ENERGY STAR® Qualified
Meets government standards to help conserve natural resources and save money on utility bills.

Steam Clean Option
Penetrates deep into fabric fibers, breaking down and dissolving stains like grass and grease without pretreating.

Stainless Steel Wash Basket
Resists odors, rust and chipping. The smooth surface helps protect delicate fabrics from snagging.

Bulky Items Cycle
Ideal for cleaning bulky items like comforters, sleeping bags, down jackets or pillows, all of which fit easily into the wash basket.

Add-A-Garment Indicator Light
Illuminates for the first 8 minutes of the wash cycle as a convenient reminder that forgotten items can still be added to the load in progress.

LED Display
Provides easy selection for all options, displays time remaining and status for the cycle.

Clean Washer cycle with Affresh® Washer cleaner
Deep fill the washer to clean areas that aren't reached by the wash cycles. Add an Affresh® Washer cleaner tablet for best results.

Up to 8 Hour PreSoak Option
Adds extra time for soaking before the wash cycle starts. When the presoak option is complete, the wash cycle will start automatically. Select 30 minutes, 1 hour, or up to 8 hours of extra soaking time.

Quiet Spin 360 Technology
Now you can place your laundry pair virtually anywhere and be assured of balanced performance and vibration control. The washer takes into account where it’s installed and adapts to improve its balance over time. A built-in accelerometer and dual-ring ball-balancing keep the wash basket centered at all times.

Steam-Enhanced Cycles
Add the power of steam to select wash cycles to eliminate tough stains with virtually no pretreating.

Smart Temperature Control Helps Reduce Shrinking and Color Bleeding
The Care Control temperature management system enabled by 6th Sense™ technology helps protect your clothes by controlling water amount and temperature.

Adaptive Clean Wash System
The Adaptive Clean wash system automatically senses the size of each load to use just the right amount of water to deliver great cleaning. The wash system is 10% more gentle* while delivering better cleaning performance that virtually eliminates the need to pretreat.
*Compared to traditional top load washers.

Keep Operational Sounds Inside the Washer
With the Quiet Wash noise reduction system, sound-absorbing materials around the wash basket or drum reduce operational noise.

Direct Drive Motor
The direct drive motor allows the washer to spin faster, and it uses fewer moving parts, so there’s less wear and tear over time.

Delicate Cycle
A reduced agitation speed and low spin speed provide needed fabric care without sacrificing cleaning performance.

Quick Wash Cycle
Clean small, lightly soiled loads in less time. Plus, increased spin speeds extract more water for faster dry times.

Whitest Whites Cycle
Raises water temperatures and releases bleach or an oxygen-based cleaner at the optimal moment to enhance whitening performance.

Automatic Water Level Control
Regulates the amount of water based on the size of the load. Only the amount needed to clean is used, increasing efficiency and helping the environment.

I'm trying to understand why something so energy efficient takes at least 3 times longer in a wash cycle to wash the same load of laundry that used to take a maximum of 14 minutes on my old, reliable Whirlpool.
The trade off, I assume, is that it spins out the laundry so well, it takes half the time to dry in my old, reliable Whirlpool dryer.
Overall, I'm pleased.

Having read the other review of the machine, I felt that it was a good unit. On paper , the wash has alot to offer. Unfortunately, our particular washer has been plagued with issues. It seems that it cannot wash a small load of towels, it has difficulty balancing the load for the spin cycle, and will get caught up in a repeated cycle of "sensing/adjusting" the load. it can take up to 3 hours to wash 3 bath towels. Factory service replaced the mother board since that couldn't figure out root cause. The repair did not fix the problem, but did create a new problem in that the Precision Dispense detergent system is not consuming soap. we have had to re-wash numerous loads over again adding detergent manually. 3 service calls so far have not fixed the dispensing problem, all in we had 5 service calls (5 days of time off from work) with not resulting value. We will have day # 6 next week.
I wanted to share this experience so that people get the pros and cons of this particular product. We are very disappointed, and regret our purchase.

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Steam 4.3 Cu.Ft. Chrome Shadow Front Load Washer:

We bought it less than 6 months ago from lowes with a 5 year warranty plan thank goodness. The motor control, the motor, the door lock, and the gasket door all need to be.replaced. Now we have to wait for special orders on all these products. No washer for 2 weeks. Never again

Pleased

By 

from Tunkhannock, PA, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Steam 4.3 Cu.Ft. Chrome Shadow Front Load Washer:

To piggy-back on my review of the Dryer, it's my first matching set. I like knowing exactly how much time it will take for each load, and that I can adjust that time by picking alternate features. The dryness of the clothing when I take them out is impressive, Air drying my delicates takes hardly any time at all.. Also, my last washer beat up my clothes so much I couldn't get the wrinkles out. With this one there are hardly any wrinkles at all! I haven't tried all the features, yet.

Lots of features to choose from

By 

from Toronto, ON, Canada

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Steam 4.3 Cu.Ft. Chrome Shadow Front Load Washer:

We purchased our new washer 5 months ago and have loved it ever since! Laundry time is cut in half. The final spin cycle drys clothes so much that it takes half the drying time! The one thing you shouldn't do with this washer is wash rubber backed area rugs in them, eg. bathmats. I wish I had known that! The rubber backing clogged the pump and we needed a service call, they fixed the problem and everything is wonderful again. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this product or buy again.

Whirlpool Duet Steam Front Load Washer

By 

from Western Massachusetts

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Steam 4.3 Cu.Ft. Chrome Shadow Front Load Washer:

This is our second Whrilpool. We had the same one (an older model) in our last home and we wanted to make sure we had the same product (newer model) on our new home. We are very happy that we purchased this product and were able to experience the newer model with so many new and better features. I would recommend this product very highly.

So many great features, my second one. I love it!

By 

from Madill, OK, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Steam 4.3 Cu.Ft. Chrome Shadow Front Load Washer:

I had an earlier model of this washer (2004 model) with the matching dryer but the buyer of of our home when we sold in July this year, requested the set be added into the purchase deal. We agreed and I went right out and bought a new set for our new home. Before doing so, I did check out consumer websites of other brands and found that my whirlpools were at the top of the list as I expected. Other brands had trouble with balance and wobble. The new one and the previous I had never have had this issue. No leaks after 10 years, cleaned my clothes efficiently. The only issue with the old model was the rubber seal mildew before I learned to leave the door open when not in use. This is common with all brands. Whirlpool improved on my new rubber seal with a draining design to prevent, I assume the mildewing. Have had it two months now. Clean as the day I put it into operation. I love the light in the drum. No more clothes left in there stuck to the top or back of the drum when emptying. I can see them:) And the drying feature is way cool for tennis shoes etc. Things I will not put in the dryer, just need to air dry them. And I have to say the price is very fair for the quality of this product when you compare to other brands. Love love my new set!
