I replaced a regular topload washer from probably the 1980s with this, so all the bells and whistles may be what is impressing me. However, after a month of using this machine, I am delighted! It is easy to use, and it fits a lot more clothing in each load. No problem washing my queen-sized quilts and blankets.My clothes seem to be brighter as well. They certainly don't have the crinkly feel of leftover laundry detergent any longer. Although the wash cycle is longer than with a topload, you can fit more in so it balances out. I have had no problems with vibrations as it is in my basement. I also haven't had any smell problems--I leave the door open as well as the door to the detergent area. Hopefully it will continue to be a great investment (can't wait to see my first water bill after using this machine!).

My 10 yr. old top loading Maytag was on its last legs, still working, just didn't sound pretty and bounced around my laundry room. However, to its defense, we are a family of 7. Anyway, purchased the Whirlpool Duet before Christmas, as a present for myself, I wish someone would come and haul this "huge paperweight" away. I carefully researched and reviewed before we bought it and it did receive good ratings. I'm not sure if we rcv'd a lemon or what. In 4 months, the last 2 it has NOT worked properly! Error codes, door lock issues, not completing cycles, over 20 phone calls to Whirlpool and the repair co. Five times, repairmen have been to my house. NEW parts have been replaced multiple times, we are currently waiting on yet another NEW part to be replaced. Whirlpool does not stand behind their product. They know the problems/issues are due to manufacturing, etc. But yet they insist on RESENDING out repairmen. The last person I spoke to at Whirlpool said, Mrs. XXXXXXXXX, sounds like your are looking to get a new machine...I laughed and said I HAVE a new machine, I just want one that works. So, here we are with a NEW machine that is sitting in laundry room, like a huge paperweight. NEVER, NEVER, again!! Stay away from Whirlpool.

Gets large loads really clean
from Missouri, United States
I actually replaced a Duet Sport model with this bigger model. At first I thought I had made a mistake, because I had loved my Duet Sport washer! It had saved me a lot of money on dry cleaning bills, plus time , because I used it for all of my hand washables. What I came to realize about this Duet 174 washer was that I still have those features and can also wash large loads, which is wonderful when my children and their families come home to visit for a few days and the towels from swimming and on-going showers pile up. My comforters are not too bulky for this power- house . My husband liked the sleek look of the machine. Our washer and dryer set is in a visible walk-through area and style matters. I love to do laundry and appreciate good hard- working appliances. This one and its matching dryer is a pleasure to use!
Ease of use is really a plus.
from San Tan Valley, AZ, United States
Needed full size stackables and the Whirlpool Duet pair was the right choice. Clothes are getting cleaner and drying faster that ever before. No more vibrations and unbalanced loads. Happy!

I bought the pair in silver and love it. So easy to use I have yet to read the How To Book! I would buy them all over again. Pat N.
Holds a big load of clothes
from Glendale, WI
I was so surprised that it holds so many clothes. It cleans my clothes cleaner than my other washer. I love all the options I can pick from.

This washer is a replacement for a nine year old Duet, which I loved. This new washer is also very good. There are a few things that I miss about my old washer and more things that I like better. My clothes get clean with a tiny amount of detergent. I enjoy many of the new features

Even I am able to operate it and get clean dry clothes in NO TIME FLAT Quiet, fast fluffy....I am getting dry.
Works fine, when it works.

If you are planning on buying this washer, for the love of god get the extended warranty. We have had to have our washer serviced at least 6 times in the last 3 years, circuit board replacements, pump replacements, bearing replacements. When it is working it is a fine washer, cheap to run and works well on a variety of fabrics. But it is VERY VERY unreliable.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
