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

I love doing laundry. After a very low tech, top loader which lasted 17 years, this washer and it's numerous cycles is a revelation. Cleans very well, and gets most stains out without pretreating. This particular model has a cartridge that you fill once with HE detergent, and then the machine determines the amount of detergent to add based upon setting selections and size of load. This is great to make sure you use the correct amount rather than be heavy handed. It has done an outstanding job on my husband's very dirty work clothes as well as delicate antique lace curtains.

The spin cycles can be a bit "whiney" (think sonic jet engine) but since my laundry room is off the kitchen, this isn't a major issue. I have tried every setting, and have been pleased with all of them. The on/off button is sensitive, and I have inadvertently turned the machine by brushing against it. Note, the button to start the machine takes more pressure and so the machine did not start, just turned on. Cute musical tones (which can be turned off) when the cycle is finished.

The major con is that the drawer with the detergent cartridge/fabric softener/bleach container ends up with a great deal of water in it after washing. In talking to the Abt repair man (who was over to check out another appliance), this is a design flaw and there is now way around pulling the drawer out, removing the detergent injection cartridge, and emptying the water, then putting it all back. If you are just doing one load, this might be a pain, but if you are doing a number of loads in one day, this isn't much of a problem. As with all front loader, you also need to leave the open after you finished washing clothes to dry out the machine and prevent odors, and clean the washer with Afresh. This model has a clean washer cycle and will let you know when you need to do this.

We originally purchased the pedestals to go with the washer and dryer, however, that made them too tall to fit under our built in cabinets in the laundry room. I was concerned that it would be difficult to get our clothes in and out, but we have not have any issues retrieving items. Since we do not have the pedestals, you will need to bend over to see the temp, spin, soil settings straight on if you are going to modify them, since the lights seem to illuminate more than one setting if viewing from an angle.

Great Abt delivery people! They delivered other appliances to me and were very informative about use. The installers immediately recognized there was going to be a problem with using the pedestals, took them back, and we received a next day refund of the purchase price.
