ENERGY STAR® Qualified

Meets government standards to help conserve natural resources and save money on utility bills.

EcoBoost Option

Get additional energy efficiency without giving up cleaning performance. This option lowers water temperature and increases the tumbling action to use less energy while still delivering great cleaning and gentle performance.

Additional Features

TumbleFresh™ Option

The TumbleFresh™ option keeps clothes fresh and reduces wrinkles2 by tumbling clothes periodically after the cycle's end for up to 6 hours. Intermittent tumbling in the washer helps reduce the growth of odor-causing bacteria.

Quiet Spin Technology

Reduces noise and vibration by minimizing movement of the wash drum during spin cycles making installation on an upper floor possible.

Cold Wash Cycle

This eco-efficient cold water cycle cleans as well as a warm water wash. An initial wash phase at the beginning of the cycle uses a high detergent concentration to remove tough stains including grass, blueberry juice, red wine. This cycle uses less energy because there is no need to heat the water or maintain the temperature during the cycle.

Active Wear Cycle

Clean small loads of active wear such as biking shorts, tank tops, running tights and other performance clothing. This cycle combines low-speed tumbling and medium-speed spin for gentle fabric care.

3.5 cu. ft. Stainless Steel Wash Basket

Clean Washer Cycle with Affresh®

Use this cycle once a month with Affresh® washer cleaner, to eliminate odor-causing soap residue and mildew that can build up as a result of regular everyday washing. This cycle uses a higher water level and hot water to remove buildup.

1,200 RPM Maximum Spin Speed

Heavy Duty Cycle

Whitest Whites Cycle

Quiet Wash Noise Reduction System

Keep operational sounds inside the washer and out of living areas with sound-absorbing materials around the wash basket.

Stainless Steel Wash Basket

Resists odors, rust and chipping. The smooth surface helps protect delicate fabrics from snagging.

Add-A-Garment Indicator Light

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO FAR SO GOOD!! I got my new washer 01/07/02. I had quite a back load of laundry and have done approx. 6 or 7 loads of clothes from delicates to towels and even a blanket. Clothes seem clean. Will take some adjustment to get accustomed to the settings but so far I have had no problems or foul ups with the washer and it seems to be functioning fine and has been easy to use. I do wish the dispenser drawer were more in the center of the machine as it is a little wide for me to fully use it with the size of my washroom folding doors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Leaking We have had this since September, had someone out 2x already, the boot replaced due to leaking and it still leaks. After every wash there is a pool of water sitting on the bottom of the boot and that is where it leaks. Very frustrating... I don't have the money to keep taking off work for all this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washer for the money! We purchased this washer in April 2011 and have been using it for over a year now. We still love it today as much as we did the first month we had it. The tumble fresh option is great when you plan not to move your clothes to the dryer right away. I also like the small load feature, the sanitize cycle and the Eco options. We stack our washer and dryer and the are very quiet! Much better than expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Happy with Washer We love our new washing machine. It is a little bit noisier than I thought it would be but certainly not too noisy and much quieter than our last washer. Our clothes come out quite clean and there is a nice variety of cycles to choose from. The only part that I don't like it that our toddlers socks get stuck in the rubber gasket at the front of the washer near the door and get caught up with bits of dog hair, etc that don't must be filtering through there. So when we unload them we need to give them a rinse and squeeze them out before we put them in the washer. I wish there wasn't a tiny sock trap! Otherwise this is an excellent product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unbalanced Drum We purchased the WFW9150 Duet stack set a little less than 2 years ago. The spider on the drum has apparently gone bad and the machine started ripping clothes in the cycle. Then it got really noisy and appeared unbalanced. Repairman says that it will cost $600 dollars to replace both the drum and spider because you can't just buy the spider, so probably not worth repairing. We are now spending another $800 to purchase another washer and trying to figure out how to stack our dryer on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Off to a GREAT start! It may be too early to write a review, but I just had to upon seeing another review. I just had this product installed today 11/6/11. I ran a first cycle with affresh to make sure the drum was clean before my first load. I read the manual while doing so. My first load is going great. It's easy to use and I had no problems. I think it could be quiter but it isn't that loud. I'll update if I come across any problems.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not satisfied I purchased Duet model 9151YW on 12/19/11. From the first useage the washer makes a metallic click, click, click on the spin cycle and as it revs up on the final spin, the machine knocks, bangs and shakes violently. The shipping bolts were removed on installation and the washer is level and on a pedestal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product is not as great as I thought it would be. This is the third front load washer I have had. It is disappointing. The washer goes off kilter when I wash towels or sheets. The rubber around the door acquires mold that I am unable to get rid of. I dry the machine out at the end of each use, but it still gets moldy. The water sits in the machine and smells funny the first load after it has set for awhile. All in all I am not real please with this machine. I'm sorry if this isn't what you wanted to hear. All three of my machines have performed the same. Also at the end of the second year they have been replaced because the tub has broken and it is cheaper to replace than fix.
