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 new washer/ dryer set looks like a million bucks, but it has been a bit of a disappointment in the noise and function department. The pair are stacked with the stack kit, and are level and correctly installed. The dryer squeaks and shakes when the washer is spinning out. The buttons on the dryer are not always responsive to the touch. The washer is unable to spin out a small cotton bath rug- it was heavy and wet even after a second rinse and spin. I feel that the doors are flimsy and cheap. They do not close with a sound feel. I think that I may only be satisfied with a commercial set, but they don't seem to be available in cool colors. I'm still on the quest for my dream front loaders.

    Comments about Whirlpool Duet Chrome Shadow Front Load Steam Washer:

    We purchased this machine to replace a Kenmore HE3 washer that was beyond repair. Slightly bigger in volume than out previous machine, so it sticks out a bit, but it works beautifully. It handles large volumes of clothing and the clothes are spun dry really well, so that when i add them to the dryer, it does a quick job (previous washer woudl still have the clothes really damp, so it took 2 dryer cycles to dry every load). Only issues i have with it: it is a bit noisy when the spinning and i need to keep the laundry room door closed or the noise is disturbing. Second issue is, using the steam cycle DOUBLES the time for washing any load. So a normal load that takes 45 mins, takes 1hr30 mins almost for a steam cycle. So unless i am washing whites, i don't use the steam cycle. We typically do 4-5 loads every weekend and cannot afford to sit for hours waiting for each cycle to get done. Other than that, it is a great machine. Washes very well!

        Comments about Whirlpool Duet Chrome Shadow Front Load Steam Washer:

        Moving up from a 12 year old machine, all the options at first seemed daunting. Actually, they were very easy to figure out and use even without much reading. Washes take longer than the old way but the clothes don't get mistreated. Very quiet. The loudest it gets is on high spin but that is still acceptable.

              We always wanted a front load washer, finally we were able to purchase this washer. Once we got it home we put it through its paces, we were amazed how much cleaner our clothes were, wow what else can we say, we love it. Great buy

                      Whirlpool has hit another home run with Duet Steam Front Load Washer. It is loaded with features including presoak and steam. Features you do not see, like a direct drive motor further enhance the machine.

                        Overall am really pleased with the Washer. It is a good looking appliance,with good features. I wish there was a Hand Wash cycle for fine sweaters and real delicates. Somtimes the efficiency settings are confusing when you use the cycles and temps suggested and it say's only fair for efficiency. Basically am satisfied withe the purchase, and would recommend buying. Also the drawer on the bottom could be a little more sturdy.

                                This Duet washer is simple to use even with numerous options. Items even in very large loads come out fresh and dryer-ready with most water extracted in spin cycle. Barely know its operating the machine is so quiet, no shaking, rattling, or whining noises.

                                    I had the old Kenmore washer for 10 years, and I thought it worked "just fine"; I even fought my husband about upgrading as an "unnecessary expense". Well, he was right and I was so wrong! This great appliance does so much more and my clothes come out so well that there is no comparison! Whites are whiter (presoak), colors actually brighter (not my imagination), and the feel and texture of everything is so much better. Biggest advantage: we live in a very humid environment and the towels and quilts never seemed to completely dry, no matter how much dryer time. NEVER knew that it was the WASHER'S fault. This new Duet so completely spins the laundry, so much moisture is removed that very little dry time is required - so much TIME and energy saved, and so much better result. I am a big, big fan! So worth it! I love love love this washer!
