4.3 cu. ft. Duet® Steam Front Load Washer with Precision Dispense is rated 4.661 out of 5 by 593.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best of the bunch I have had 4 HE machines, specifically 3 front loaders and 1 top loader. When my top loader went.. I went shopping and the salesperson (local appliance store) suggested this machine. I immediately said "no way.. Front loaders don't work well at cleaning clothes". He said "trust me, you will love it"... And I do... I think it makes a difference as to where you buy it in terms of the quality.. Even when they look like the same model ... Some stores have cheaper parts. The only downside: You have to keep the door and soap dispenser open to avoid mold and water collects in the soap dispenser... You have to dump water out each time you use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Duet washer is a dependable, efficient machine My laundry consists of horse clohing - blankets, sheets, saddle pads, towels. I put muddy, hairy laundry in the Duet, and get great results - the items come out fesh & clean without any dirt residue. A problem with horse hair clogging the drain of a competitor's washer caused us to return that washer. We then decided on the Duet, which handles the horse hair extremely well. We've been using our new Duet for 5 months now and are totally satisfied with its performance. It gets the wash very clean with just a small amount of detergent. With its 4.3 cubic feet capacity, we can wash large loads easily. Simply put, our Duet has proven itself to be a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like it so far... We have had this machine for about 3 months now. We purchased this Whirlpool washer after our previous Whirlpool front load machine had a failure under warranty. We were surprised to see that the price had nearly doubled in four years. This machine is very quite when running. It does a great job of cleaning and offers a variety of setting to wash your clothes. This model has a light inside the wash drum which comes on automatically when the door is opened and is quite handy. Because of the light, we do not keep the door open after use, and so far have not had any issues with smell from the wash drum. We probably use our washer 4-6 times per week.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Difficult to Use I'm sorry I ever bought this washing machine. I researched it thoroughly before I purchased it. Every time I use iit I never know whether it's going to shut down or not. I'm used to doing a load of whites with bleach (towels, underwear and socks). You can't put large towels in with small underwear and socks - the machine shuts down. If items in the wash are not similar in size and weight the machine shuts down. When you finall yget it to complete a cycle, the clothes are clean. I rue the day I bought this machine and would love to trade it in for a lless sensitive machine. I'd love to get my money back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product but reversing the doors is a nighmare..Not happy Purchased the pair from best buy . paid to have the dryer door reversed for stacking. Not one person in the delivery service knew how to reverse the door. They came out 3 times and could not get the dryer door reversed. They all blasted Whirlpool for the door design. Easy with all other manufacturers. I went 2 months paying at at local laundry. Then when they finally did figure out out to switched the door it would not latch. Clothes would push the door open. Check it out Whirlpool ... not very happy but only gave good stars because your from michigan. Yes u have my review ... u know who i am . Call Best Buy in Utica Really upset

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the capacity! I am fond of front loaders for their conservation of water. The capacity is large which I really appreciate. I have read good reviews for reliability and performance which prompted me to purchase whirlpool and so far have proven right. There is an issue with dispensing where it sometimes spills the detergent onto the rim of the washer and the detergent gets rinsed out....also, some of the detergent sits on the rim and has to be wiped off before removing the cleaned laundry from the drum. The controls are very sensitive and can change settings just by standing near it. Other than that, it works great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality/ High Priced I was the proud owner of a Whirlpool Duet HT washing machine since 2003. I loved it! It did not have one problem for over 10 years. Unfortunately, when it did have a problem, it was a major problem that would have cost more to fix than replace with a new washing machine. My brand new Whirlpool Duet/steam (WFW94HEAW) is a HUGE disappointment! My original machine was so quiet and was of sturdy construction. This model seems cheaply made, poor quality and makes numerous LOUD NOISES. After making complaint to Lowe's I was advised to call for service. The new washing machine checks out fine. Deciding whether to keep it or send it back for a different brand name appliance.
Date published: 2014-05-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wash Cycles Take Sooooo Long I'm trying to understand why something so energy efficient takes at least 3 times longer in a wash cycle to wash the same load of laundry that used to take a maximum of 14 minutes on my old, reliable Whirlpool. The trade off, I assume, is that it spins out the laundry so well, it takes half the time to dry in my old, reliable Whirlpool dryer. Overall, I'm pleased.
