Whirlpool® Duet® 4.1 cu. ft. Front Load Washer with the Cold Wash cycle is rated 4.5927 out of 5 by 1,488.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this washer!!! I am so glad that I got this washer! It works with ease, washes close great and runs like a champ! This is the second whirlpool washer I have bought in the pass 11 years and would not change a thing about it. Very very happy!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine We are very happy with our new Whirlpool Duet. I was pleasantly surprised at just how quiet it is when running. Our old Duet was quite loud. This machine's spin cycle is very fast, and the the clothes come out without needing much dryer time! It has all the basic cycles I require for a washer. On another note, our old Whirlpool Duet had bearings that went bad after owning it for six years. The cost negated getting it fixed, and we decided to get a new one. I certainly hope this Duet last longer than six years! If not, we'll not get another Whirlpool Duet. These machines need to be built to last longer; with the money a washer costs, I expect and deserve to have a machine last longer than 6 or 7 years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some frustrations with design Although I feel that this washer is much better than my previous washer there are a few things that still bother me. The sensor buttons on the front are too touchy. On more than one occasion I have inadvertently bumped into the front of the machine and it has turned off in the middle of washing my cloths! Then when I turn it back on it doesn't remember what cycle it was on so I have to start the wash all over again. Very frustrating! Also it does seem to take a long time to wash a load. 1 to 1 and 1/2 hours. The time remaining is not always accurate. I put a load in and it said 50 minutes and I had to leave for work in and hour. When it was time for me to leave I went to put cloths in the dryer but there still was 20 minutes left! Also frustrating!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Arizona Mom not happy at all with washer. I cannot wash a twin blanket under 2 hours of time. The drum is straight not tilted back as my last washer so as it tries to spin it senses it is out of balance. The idea of having a large capacity washer is so you can do the family size loads and not have to run the blankets to the Laundromat. The on/off button will shut off if bumped so I always have to do the "Control Lock". Thankfully I no longer have toddlers. I got the base model and cannot shut off the sound. If I had purchased the next model up I would have been able to shut it off. Without changes to the washers, I will not be interested in another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This washing machine has great features on it as far as cycle features. I would recommend this product to anyone. It washes nice has the best features on it and your clothes come out alot cleaner then top load washers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing products I could not be more pleased with my new Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer. Due to limited space, I needed a "stacking" unit, and with the new design, I was able to have these units stacked. The quality, ease of use, and performance are way beyond what I expected. There is no comparison in my old unit and the new. The interior of the washer is stainless steel, so there is no chance of rust forming and causing a problem with my laundry, like I had with my old washer. I am amazed how clean my clothes are without a huge tub full of water. The spin cycle is also excellent requiring less drying time. 100% pleased. GOOD JOB! HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great washer! This washer has many features that older models do not have. It has a large capacity that makes it easy to wash your king size bedspreads and blankets. It is very quiet and the spin cycle is so efficient that the clothes seem practically dry when removed from the washer.. This eliminates long drying times that are expensive and damaging to the clothes. It uses less water than older models so saves water and reduces the water bill. The only negative is that if you use detergent or additives that are in the new concentrated pouches, they often do not dissolve in the washer. The detergent dispenser is removable for cleaning which is very handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like it We purchased this washer about a month ago to replace a top loading model we'd had for a few years. I really appreciate the front loader- just put the detergent in the drawer, put the clothes in and turn it on. The washing cycles are longer than on are earlier model, but the clothes come out very clean and so well wrung out from spinning that they are almost dry in some cases. Which means less time and energy to dry them. this washer is also much quieter than our old one. Only thing I don't like is having to dry out the seal on the door and remove the detergent drawer to dry it- but a small problem. I'll never get a top loader again.
