In a world where everything is getting more complicated, this washing machine is very simple to use. I was looking for a machine that didn't give too many confusing options and that was modern and attractive in appearance, this one is exactly what I was looking for. I am very pleased.

If I could have given this a negative star I would have! Very frustrated with this washer purchased a few months ago...should have read the reviews before I bought it as the ones on Feb. 5,7,11,16 already spoke to the problem and that was the most recent reviews. This machine was great for the first 2 months and I loved it...then it stopped spinning the clothes dry enough to put in the dryer. I often have to run them again on drain/spin to get them dry enough for the dryer... our dryer is now struggling and I guess so...we have been putting very damp clothes in for months now. We are guessing this problem will cause us to replace the dryer soon too. An added expense because of our problem with this Whirlpool washer. It takes forever to do laundry now and I have to babysit the loads and pick and choose what needs to be washed the most in hopes I don't have to wait for another cycle to spin/drain and then dry them. Now drying takes forever as we have to restart the dryer several times to complete drying and often give up and string clothes all around the laundry room to air dry. Service has been out 2 times and a 3rd time to put on a new 'mother board' hoping that would help...it did not. I was given a pep talk on how to wash clothes and sort them and how much detergent to use! This is my 3rd front loader in 13 years and I am 56 years old...I know how to sort and wash clothes. However, I have had to alter my options with this washer and accept smaller loads and they are still coming out wet. This washer is making laundry a nightmare and like other working moms, I don't need this extra stress! Last week I put in one small throw off the sofa...just one...and it came out soaking wet...not damp...water was dripping! I called for a 3rd service call and was scheduled for this morning to find out that the service company they were sending does not service my area any more so I have cleared my busy schedule today for nothing!...Would have been nice to know that piece of info while I was waiting on them to come this morning and scheduling my day. I asked for a different tech this time as it was hard to maintain my composure when the previous one gave me the tutorial on how to wash clothes and this was the kicker when we talked about the quick cycle...his analogy and I quote...'you can speed down the highway for a while and it's all ok but, there is a good chance you will eventually get caught speeding and get a ticket and realize you should not speed anymore...therefore, using the quick cycle for a while was an ok option at first and now it's not so I should stop using it'! Oh boy! I am a professional so I did not tell the nice gentleman what I really thought of his comment...but, I did make these facts clear and I hope whoever reads this from Whirlpool will internalize them...my problem with this washer happens on ALL cycles...it was great for a couple of months and stopped spinning our clothes...even the smallest loads adequately...I know how to sort and wash clothes and have had to become even more equipped to do so with such an inadequate washer...and honestly, if quick wash is not a good option why did Whirlpool put it on the machine. I am a designer and work with commercial and residential projects and often get to purchase the appliance packages for builders and homeowners...I would not want others to have the journey I am having with this washer and will remember this...and being in this business I also know that customer service is key and hope Whirlpool does not disappoint me and the audience I work for. I realize sometimes appliances stop working properly and even though the tech says his 'diagnostic' equipment is not giving him a reading of a problem...my very wet clothes are. Common sense sometimes has to come into play and I hope Whirlpool will agree. I have purchased appliances for my projects from the same big box store for years...I hope they don't disappoint us either. I have used the word 'hope' a lot...so, I guess I am still hopeful this will have a positive outcome as we continue to address a very obvious problem.

Excellent Choice So Far

By 

from Saint Louis, Missouri

Comments about Whirlpool White 4.2 Cu. Ft. Duet High Efficiency Front Load Washer:

I have had this washer for 2 months now. I am an auto mechanic with really dirty, greasy uniforms. I am amazed at how clean this thing gets my uniforms. I am flabbergasted by how little water it uses. I can start a load of wash and get into the shower at the same time! I live in a mobile home and rain on the roof makes more noise than this washer. I just wanted something that would work to get my clothes clean without spending a fortune I have no need for 10,000 different settings and steam and all that stuff...being a single (again) middle aged male, I really would not know what to do with them if I had them.

To the person fussing about the towels not being "Downy Soft", I can say I too had a similar issue. I found that if I run the "Extra Rinse" feature, this helps a bunch.

Bottom line: Gets them VERY clean, does it quietly with very little water, and leaves money for my hobbies.

Problems with fabric softener dispensing

By 

from Advance NC

Comments about Whirlpool White 4.2 Cu. Ft. Duet High Efficiency Front Load Washer:

I bought this machine May 2015. I love the washer and the dryer. The washer worked great at first but towels are not soft at all. The Downy dispenses and no problems with it running thru dispenser but my towels are rough. Has anyone had this issue? I had the machine checked out and no problem with any of dispenser and hoses but towels and blankets are not Downy soft like I want.

Not impressed, cannot wash towels.

By 

from CT

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool White 4.2 Cu. Ft. Duet High Efficiency Front Load Washer:

In the first few months I was impressed but then as time went on it didn't spin out all of the water form the clothes and they started coming out heavier. Had a service tech out here 2x and the machine would not go into high speed spin. Told me I was mixing towels with regular clothes and that wouldn't work. Well, how come it worked in the beginning then? All I can say is I am glad I purchased extra insurance to last me until 2021. I use the machine a few times per week and take out the soap dispenser and let it dry completely and I leave the door open in between washes and the clothes still stink every so often, especially the bath towels. This machine is OK for regualr clothes but when it comes to towels it doesn't cut the mustard. The bottom line is I would not recommend this machine.

Does a good job

Comments about Whirlpool White 4.2 Cu. Ft. Duet High Efficiency Front Load Washer:

I like my new machine but the one thing I don't like is the door so big I cannot put the laundry basket under it. My old machine the door was smaller. Machine does a good job. I got a very simple model so it's easy to use, I didn't want to machine to did 800 things, just wash.
