Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleased To piggy-back on my review of the Dryer, it's my first matching set. I like knowing exactly how much time it will take for each load, and that I can adjust that time by picking alternate features. The dryness of the clothing when I take them out is impressive, Air drying my delicates takes hardly any time at all.. Also, my last washer beat up my clothes so much I couldn't get the wrinkles out. With this one there are hardly any wrinkles at all! I haven't tried all the features, yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of features to choose from We purchased our new washer 5 months ago and have loved it ever since! Laundry time is cut in half. The final spin cycle drys clothes so much that it takes half the drying time! The one thing you shouldn't do with this washer is wash rubber backed area rugs in them, eg. bathmats. I wish I had known that! The rubber backing clogged the pump and we needed a service call, they fixed the problem and everything is wonderful again. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this product or buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whirlpool Duet Steam Front Load Washer This is our second Whrilpool. We had the same one (an older model) in our last home and we wanted to make sure we had the same product (newer model) on our new home. We are very happy that we purchased this product and were able to experience the newer model with so many new and better features. I would recommend this product very highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use! I bought this 3 weeks ago and could not be happier! It is not only easy to use it has cleaned my clothes way better than our last top loader machine. Definitely a good value for a great product:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many great features, my second one. I love it! I had an earlier model of this washer (2004 model) with the matching dryer but the buyer of of our home when we sold in July this year, requested the set be added into the purchase deal. We agreed and I went right out and bought a new set for our new home. Before doing so, I did check out consumer websites of other brands and found that my whirlpools were at the top of the list as I expected. Other brands had trouble with balance and wobble. The new one and the previous I had never have had this issue. No leaks after 10 years, cleaned my clothes efficiently. The only issue with the old model was the rubber seal mildew before I learned to leave the door open when not in use. This is common with all brands. Whirlpool improved on my new rubber seal with a draining design to prevent, I assume the mildewing. Have had it two months now. Clean as the day I put it into operation. I love the light in the drum. No more clothes left in there stuck to the top or back of the drum when emptying. I can see them:) And the drying feature is way cool for tennis shoes etc. Things I will not put in the dryer, just need to air dry them. And I have to say the price is very fair for the quality of this product when you compare to other brands. Love love my new set!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features! I purchased this just over a month ago to replace a top loader and I am so happy I did! I love the features, colour(chrome), cleaner and dryer clothes, easy to use, and the sound level is less! I also love the chime that lets you know the cycle is complete!
