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.

Comments about Whirlpool Chrome Front Load Steam Washer:
My first Duet front load washer & dryer lasted only 6 years and started having problems. I replaced them with this washer & a steam gas dryer. The first thing I noticed is that this washer is much noisier than my first washer. Then the washer would get stuck on the drain cycle. The repairman is still working on trying to figure out why. This week the dryer started making some strange noise - like something is loose inside. The dryer had already been repaired once due to a banging sound. Will definitely buy another brand next time around.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My clothes are clean and fresh everytime!
from Long Island, NY
I bought this machine a little over a year ago and have been very happy with it so far. The only thing I will recommend is that you purchase an extended warranty with it if you have kids. Mine recently had to be serviced and I did not buy the warranty at the time of purchase because money was a bit tight due to rebuilding my entire home after hurricane sandy. Some how a sock and change and a charm from my daughters bracelet got sucked into the water draining mechanism and was causing the machine to not able to drain.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased six weeks ago and am happy with the end product -- clean clothes. I have not had a front loading machine before so the maintenance is tedious, but worth it, I believe, in the long run, and hope it will last 23 years as our last top loader did. The machine is beautiful, but very sensitive. The slightest touch will interrupt a cycle. I would like to be able to change some settings that are preset, but it will not allow it. Seems to be much easier on the items being washed. Very quiet.

Have you ever looked deep into the barrel of your front load washer and felt something that was endless? Something that could only have been forged in the deepest recesses of time and space? Where supernovas end and the purest elements of life begin? then you haven't owned one of these bad boys.

I've had this washer for a couple months now. It has more features than I use, but my girlfriend probably uses them all. The machine is ready to use and works great. It is a replacement for another whirlpool washing machine that I had for many years before it's tub bearing wore out. I will probably buy another whirlpool machine when this one eventually wears out.
Even a man!

I showed ignorance when my wife and I first married and never had to do the laundry, but now I can't get away with that excuse, the Whirlpool we bought makes even a man able to understand how to wash a load of clothes.
I like how good it is made

Doesn't last 2 years
from Lake in the Hills, IL, United States
I'm weary of my new machine because it's the same machine as the one that broke before owning it even 2 years. Because of my warranty I'm stuck with the same washer that I do love when it works.
