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. Thank you, Jackie

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.

Extremely pleased

By 

from Powell River B.C.

Verified Buyer

For the summer months I like to dry my clothes outside and I immediately noticed that my new washing machine spins the clothes even more dryer than my last front load whirlpool. As ever, easy to use, and the capacity has stood me in good stead with all the sheets I have had to wash with the influx of summer visitors.
Also love the musical tones when the laundry is completed!

Worst appliance I ever owned, lots of $$ wasted

By 

from new england

I could write a book about the problems with this machine. Service came out many times because it spun so hard the vibrations shook the drain hoses out and even shook pictures off the walls two rooms away. But, they said it was supposed to work like that ..... huh??? We had it on a pedestal for easy to reach and filled the pedestal drawers with cinder blocks to weight it down, didn't help. The detergent dispenser is always full of water, have to leave it out and dry it well and spray with Lysol but it still stinks. The rubber seals in the door always have water in between them no matter how many times you wipe them out, had to leave the door open so they would dry but they still got slimy moldy smelly, I was told not to put Lysol or bleach on them as it will ruin the rubber. The clothes came out terrible, there just isn't enough water, and the old top loader holds a lot more clothes. Also within two months all of the touch pads cracked. I contacted Whirlpool several times but they did not stand behind the product, I got rid of it. The dryer was fair to OK so at least a got a few years out of that. Never again with a DUET, I went back to the old top loader with agitator in another brand for a lot less money, much much happier.

Very happy with this purchase. This washer is very easy to use and the various features are wonderful for many types of materials. What surprised me most about this product was how large it is. A queen sized comforter could easily be washed in this machine.

Cleans good.

By 

from Tehachapi,CA.

I do like how well this cleans. It is louder than I thought. I like the stacking features but can't fine the parts to do that and the directions for flipping the door were not right. But I am happy with the performance of both washer and dryer. The dryer can fit two normal loads and that is nice.
