We upgraded to this washer from a 13 year old run-of-the-mill washer and the difference was night and day. This washer uses very little water and cleans our clothes very well. Plus, we can finally wash our king sized comforter without having to take it to the cleaners. This washer is so quiet, without the "done" chime you'd never know it was done. The spin cycle is ridiculous! This thing must spin the speed of a jet engine. It's super fast and gets the clothes nearly dry, so the matching dryer finishes the job very quickly. Overall we are very happy with this washer.

This is my first front load washer, not impressed, the he detergent packs don't disolve completely so I have to clean up the mess everytime I use it so switched to he liquid detergent and the cartridge that holds the liquid doesn't work so had to remove it and pour the liquid directly where the cartridge sits, that seems to work so far. I like the affresh clean cycle and the other features.

        I really love this machine! Upgraded my front end loader with this model and was surprised to see how much better it is. The clothes come out cleaner. I love the load and go feature- ensures all our children don't overload the soap!

              Comments about Whirlpool Black Diamond 4.5 Cu. Ft. Duet Front Load Washer:

              The load-n-go feature is nicer than I was expecting. It provide the proper dispense of detergent for each load. This is a pretty quite washing machine. The loudest part of the cycle is the spin cycle when it sounds like an airplane ready for takeoff. It spins fast which should make for less drying time.

                      A pleasure to do laundry if that's possible. Very user friendly and self explanatory digital panel. Love the one time soap fill for convenience. Using less detergent and takes the guess amount away. Dryer is really fast using less energy. Great lighting, and very attractive color and design. Cleans clothes perfectly with no stripping or residue. A+++ Whirlpool engineers! Thank you and worth the money.

                                  We've had this for a few months and I love it so far. It holds a ton of clothes and gets them cleaner than my previous washer - which was a great washer. I like the various settings and surprisingly have used several of them. I have nothing but positive things to say about this washer and the job it does on my laundry - including an 8 year old boy's baseball pants and other sports clothes.

                                        Very solid unit; weights a ton, so you will need two burly guys to install it; disappointed that the hose connections were plastic. Numerous wash cycles; Load and go system thinks it's out of detergent when the door is flush with the front of the machine; have to pull it out slightly for load & go light to come on; Whirlpool sent new parts, but that didn't fix the problem. It's not a big problem, but I expected better precision. High speed spin cycle really gets the water out of the clothes. Makes drying times much shorter, but it does sound like a jet engine. I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

                                              I bought this washer a month ago and am so happy that I did. It's so simple to use and offers so many great features. I love the automatic detergent dispenser. I'm using way less detergent than before. Also, the clothes come out so dry that my dryer time is cut in half!

                                                    I am a mom and a textile artist so I needed a washer that could really take a beating (not literally). This washer has been wonderful. The fan fresh feature is a huge plus for me with my dyed garments that can now sit and be tossed in the washer if I need to go out.
                                                    The beautiful chimes the machine makes is a nice touch!
