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.

I bought this a month ago and I have had to replace the machine twice! The first machine work well for about two weeks, then is started making this loud humming noise with I reported to the salesman that sold the washer. He having repaired Whirlpool products before suggested that I call the Whirlpool to check out. Giving Whirlpool a call and them sending a service tech out - the tech checked out the machine and noted that it was indeed a factory defect(something to due with the way the water is pumped into the machine). So the store replaced the machine and pedestal. After waiting a week for the replacement machine due to limited stock because of color (black) I finally get it delivered. Once the machine is connected and the delivery team leave - Guess what the same noise only this time ten times louder! I was floored I quickly grab my phone a capture it on video and send it to the sales person who sold me the machine. He was shocked a well. In addition to that this machine has a hard time balancing the clothes for the spin and the pedestal rattles like crazy. when it does spin. I store is willing to exchange this machine and they are suggesting that I purchase a LG machine. I chose Whirlpool because I have have their products and sold the brand in the past. I last machine was a Kenmore HE3T which was build by Whirlpool base from the Duet. It lasted almost 11 years. I have been seeing so many reviews of front loaders and I wonder if I should go with LG. With all the controversy a few years back I thought Whirlpool had learned and improved. I wonder if Whirlpool really cares about their products and the people who buy them or is all about the bottom line.When I walk in the appliance stores now its LG and Samsung on top. One big thing that helped me to make my decision when I first bought this washer and dryer is the made in America sticker on the machine THAT is what helped me give Whirlpool another chance with the second machine. Now I think that sticker is not enough, Now i understand why LG and Samsung are doing well. Whirlpool Corporation go back to the basics and tighten up on quality not quantity.

Your stuff once was great. It is now junk

By 

from scottsdale, az

Verified Buyer

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

I had this machine one week and it started leaking water all over the floor. First of all it took two weeks to get a repair man out there which tells me that a lot of your stuff is breaking. If you can't build it right then you better get some repair men trained up to handle the call load. It took them two trips to find the leak. Inferior workman ship was the answer. This should not happen!

NOISY WHEN SPIN DRYING

By 

from HONOLULU, HI

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

I HAD MY FRONT LOAD WASHER INSTALLED THE DAY BEFORE CHRISTMAS. ON THE DEFAULT FAST SPIN, EACH WEEK IT MAKES LOUD AND LOUDER METALLIC WHINES. I HAVE REDUCED THE LOUD SOUNDS BY REDUCING THE SPIN SPEED, BUT NOW MY DRYER HAS TO WORK LONGER TO DRY THE WETTER CLOTHES.

Beware of paint

By 

from NJ

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

I didn't get to unpack it right away or use it because I was in the middle of renovating my house, but I was finally able to take all the plastic and tape off, only to find that the finish was ruined.

The top had tons of micro scratches and when I went to pull of the blue tape that was on the front/top of the unit it pulled off the gray finish along the edge of the front panel, and its flaking in parts that it didn't come off completely. I'm so disappointed and definitely expected better for $1000+ plus machine.

After a month, no issues with washer. The load and go, is nice. You don't have to mess with what to do with measuring cup with soap residue. The heating water in washer helps kill dust mites and with cleaning too.

This is our first front Loader.

By 

from DFW Metroplex, Texas

Verified Buyer

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

We bought the matching pair of these about 2 months ago. The features are excellent and it's so efficient using hardly any water and the cloths come out exceptionally clean. The controls are for the most part easy to understand and instinctual. The "LOAD & GO" is a great idea. I would request that if Whirlpool is reading this that they add some additional detail in the instruction manual, specifically about which cycles will dispence Bleach. That detail is missing so when the bleach dispenser did not dispense bleach we weren't sure it was a fault or not. Turns out it was not working properly. We will get that sorted out but otherwise love this washer and it's a very attractive appliance of that is of any concern....great color.

Fantastic Washer!

By 

from Orlando, FL

Verified Buyer

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

I purchased this washer as a set with the Duet ventless dryer (also a great product), and could not be happier. The washer has all the features one would expect from a high-end product, but the laundry detergent reservoir is the best! I love not having to add detergent for every load - I'm just sorry I did not buy this washer years ago (or at least when it first came on the market). I also love the attention tones used by the washer - much better then the buzzers on other products.
