Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 615 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!!!! June 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. October 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Duet 4.1 Washer .As in the past, I always return to Whirlpool products. I tried another very popular brand a few months ago and returned it as it was way too complicated and did not perform well compared to Whirlpool!. The 4.1 is a good large size and easily washes my King quilt without wrinkling. It also means fewer loads and the energy star rating is the best possible. Clothes come out clean and smelling great. Even towels which tend to get musty. I gave this machine 4 * in performance and design only because the power button is too easy to turn off as it is placed on the front panel. Now that things are digital and there no longer are knobs on the front all you need to do is lean on them and they react. I recommend that the rubber gasket gets wiped dry after each use and the door left open when done to prevent the mildew smell that eventually will develop with front loaders and rubber gaskets which seal them. Other than that, I could sell these machines.. I LOVE WHIRLPOOL. March 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Everything is great....but...... Everything about this machine is great. I can wash queen size comforters with room to spare. Everything comes out very clean and it dries out the laundry rather well. The biggest problem is the door lock. It checks itself before each load, but often doesn't think its locked. So, what does it do???? If I attempt to cancel the load and re-start it (without adjusting the door) it LOCKS the door and will NOT allow me to unlock it. So, off to the circuit breaker I go....turn it off for about 5 minutes...turn it back on...and waaaa-laaaa the locked door magically unlocks then if you start the load...well, gee...guess what...it realizes it is shut properly and does the wash. UGH!!! It happens quite often, so I'll have to call for a repair guy...but didn't really want to deal with it since I'm in the middle of chemo! Sorta a real pain in the bottom....BUT IF ASKED WHETHER I LIKE THE WASHER....I'D SAY YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (flaws and all) One other BIG PLUS....it does NOT shake the entire floor like my last front-loader did (from a different manufacturer) March 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Gets clothes clean with little water. We needed a new washer since our 20 year old model needed several repairs in the last year. Although this model doesn't have all the "cycles" as the more expensive next step up model, it takes care of all of my needs. It does not appear to use much water, but it does get the dirt out of the clothes. I have put muddy clothes in and take them out clean. The cycles take longer than with my washing machine (1993, top loading, none high efficiency) For muddy clothes I use the heavy duty, heavy soiled, extra rinse cycle which takes 1hour and 35 minutes. My old washer would have gotten them clean in 40 minutes, but the trade off is the extra water. I don't really see how it would have saved energy. As for a large load on a regular cycle in this washer-- 40 minutes. This probably would be energy and water saving! I also do not find it to be loud. Example: I would have no trouble talking on the phone in my laundry room while both the washer and dryer are running. March 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love everything except a few things. Everything is really easy to use, and it does a great job at cleaning. It doesn't rock too much, and the sound levels are great. I also love that it was made in the USA. I have just a few nits 1. Can't edit certain settings based on where the dial is. This is just a little confusing. Why can't I add time if I've chosen "Bulky"? Why can't I adjust the water temp if I've chosen "Gentle"? I should be able to edit any of the settings on the right regardless of the dial, or the settings should show a red (not green) light. 2. I love the Control Lock feature. If you hold down the button for a few seconds then the other buttons don't work. This helps keep my toddler from messing up my settings. However the Control Lock button doesn't look like a button. It's just some text floating somewhere. All of the other buttons are in a row and have a line border on them. Fix it. 3. It sings when it's done. This is a lot nicer than the buzz I grew up with, but it can be loud when the baby is sleeping. A mute function, volume adjust or even the ability to pick the sounds would be nice. November 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by We love our new washer We have never had a front-load washer before, and since my wife and I both have bad backs, it was getting harder to bend over, so we decided to get this washer and add a platform to raise it up. So far this washer has been great since we got it about 6 months ago. I installed it, and it was very easy, Our backs have been a bit happier (yes, we both do laundry), and the machine is much quieter and has less vibration than our old top load. The only complaint is that the machine is too easy to turn on if you lean against the power button - which is not really a button, but something you touch and hold for a second. I will solve that by getting a piece of foam, shaping it into a doughnut shape, and gluing it around the on/off touch button. Having said that, I really like not having any mechanical dials or knobs. The machine (and the matching dryer) are nice looking, and really added some class to our old washroom. November 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product provides more benifits than washing clothes I recently had to replace a one year old competitor's top load wash machine I bought new. It fell apart twice and subsequently self destructed when it fell apart a second time (past it's warranty). I bought this Whirlpool after researching on line and found other good reviews. After owning the machine, I found that my clothes are cleaner than before, I use much, much less laundry soap than before and uses less water. Also the clothes are much dryer from the spin cycle, therefore it takes less time in the dryer. This machine might cost a little more than a cheaper conventional top load, but in the long run I will be saving money due to lower laundry detergent costs, lower water and electric bills. I also found it to be quieter and it handles larger loads much easier than a top load machine. No longer having to readjust laundry loads because of the agitator shifting your clothes into an uneven load. April 8, 2014
