This is the first front loading washer I have purchased. When in Europe, the gites I rent always provide one and when my washer ceased to function I decided to go with the front loader. I love how it loads, how the detergent and softeners have separate compartments, and the ease with which to select the appropriate levels and type of laundry. I feel like I finally made it to the 21st century of laundry.

We bought this machine July of 2011, and here we are just shy of 4 years, 5/13/2015, and we are looking at having to either fix our machine at a price of $471, or buy a new one. We are opting to purchase a new one after what we thought was the drain pump went out, but no, it's the CCU. When we first bought it, I was somewhat pleased with it, although it didn't clean our whites or heavily stained clothes all that well. This was the second front loader machine (previous one was a Maytag Neptune) we've owned, and we are going back to a top loading machine. Spend your money on something else, because you will only be spending a whole lot more in a few years.

        just trying to do my laundry

              Comments about Whirlpool 4.2 cu. ft. Duet High Efficiency White Front Load Washer:

              I am just trying to do regular household laundry for a family of four and this machine has been nothing but trouble. It is in fact the second Duet we have had because the first one delivered and installed died in the first 6 months and I finally got Whirlpool to replace it. Now three years on the pump motor seems to be going. It's been three years of coddling and temperamental performance from the machine. I dread doing laundry because I fear it will trip a code.
              I just want to do the laundry. It really should be simpler than this.

                    Bought the Duet washer & dryer as a set about two weeks ago to replace the first generation Duets purchased when they were first introduced (app 2004)...extremely pleased with the first set and even more pleased with this set.
