Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 444 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good performance washer in the price range. This is the second front loading washer we have owned and our fifth or sixth overall. The other front loader was a Kenmore Elite. We have owned it for about six months and have been very satisfied with the performance. The washer has performed flawlessly. We have never had to rewash a set of clothes. The controls are intuitive and easy to use. To date, we have not seen any design issues with the washer. One feature that I miss from our previous set is a wash cycle specifically for bulky items - but the towels setting seems to do fine as long as you lower the temperature. The washer is built well and is of solid construction. It is usually quiet during operation - at least compared to previous washers we have owned. Price wise, I believe that it was priced very similar to comparable washers from other brands. One thing that you need to look for as you are purchasing items from Whirlpool is their May rebate event which will allow you to get additional $$ off the price. December 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is the best washer by far acording to my spouse. Being an outside repair technician for Whirlpool when I was a younger man, I became well acquainted with Whirlpool products. I have since always migrated towards the Whirlpool brand when considering new appliances. My spouse and I have purchased and used several washers and dyers from Whirlpool in our 35 years of marriage with total success. The recent purchase of a front loading washier was met with some prior reserve thoughts by my spouse. She was dubious of water spilling on the floor when opening the front loading door. Well, no worries, there is very little to no spillage when the door is opened, and she would not consider any other style of washer in the future. She is very hard to please when it comes to washing machines and dryers. However, she has now found the perfect washing machine, and when my spouse is happy, all is well in the household. Thank you Whirlpool for the continued advancement of your produces for the past 60 years that I have been acquainted with them. November 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by You gotta get one of these! We bought a Duet washer and dryer set last spring. I had and older top loading high tech washer that we had to leave with a house that we sold in another state. I thought that washer was great but then I met this Whirlpool Duet...... Now I can say that I am in love with an inanimate object..... How could you not have affection for something that makes your life easier, makes you look and feel better, is dependable, looks good, saves you time and energy and keeps its promises? I thought I had the whole laundry thing down to an exact science but I found out that this machine and I truly did make a great "duet". I can put a load in at bedtime and the load is still fresh when I get up in the morning and place it in the Duet dryer. The Fan-fresh option makes this possible. Our clothing is brighter and whiter. I rarely have to treat stains. I love the abbreviated cycle for just one or two items that I must have to make a wardrobe work for that day. Thank you for creating this relationship!

Rated 5 out of 5 by An excellent washer! This washer replaced our LG top loader. We have been extremely pleased with it so far. It starts with the heavy-duty door, which was one of my main concerns about a front-loader. This is followed by controls that are not only intuitive but make simple work of configuring your wash load. This could have been quite complicated but is actually very easy. The noise level is pretty negligible, and even the end-of-cycle alarm is a pleasant chime instead of an annoying buzzer. So far, this has been the best washing machine we've had in over 40 years. The only thing I would have changed is the location of the detergent drawer. If you mount the washing machine on a pedestal and use the large jugs of detergent, this drawer is high enough to make loading detergent a bit cumbersome. If it was a little lower, it would be more convenient. But this is a trivial issue compared to all of the pluses in this machine. March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Many new features that make my wash day easier but longer as I use the soak & extra rnse cycle all the time. Have been using it for two months and am extremely satisfied with it. My clothes come clean while using a lot less water. Also the drying time is less because it spins the clothes dryer. Right after purchasing this washer my husband had a nose bleed and dripped blood all over the down comforter on our bed. I washed it with Biz and detergent, using the 30 minute soak and the high speed spin. It still had enough water in it to make it a long drying cycle so I used the extra spin feature and that did the trick. I could not believe how short a time it took to dry and that was with my old dryer. As I had just washed that sames comforter the month before I knew I had spent most of one day drying the down so there would be no moisture left in it. That really cinched my satisfaction with the washing machine for me. Now I am anxious to try the washing machine on my new kitchen rugs that ould not go in my old washing machine with an agitator but can go in this one. March 18, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Problematic Unit, poor experience with factory service Having read the other review of the machine, I felt that it was a good unit. On paper , the wash has alot to offer. Unfortunately, our particular washer has been plagued with issues. It seems that it cannot wash a small load of towels, it has difficulty balancing the load for the spin cycle, and will get caught up in a repeated cycle of "sensing/adjusting" the load. it can take up to 3 hours to wash 3 bath towels. Factory service replaced the mother board since that couldn't figure out root cause. The repair did not fix the problem, but did create a new problem in that the Precision Dispense detergent system is not consuming soap. we have had to re-wash numerous loads over again adding detergent manually. 3 service calls so far have not fixed the dispensing problem, all in we had 5 service calls (5 days of time off from work) with not resulting value. We will have day # 6 next week. I wanted to share this experience so that people get the pros and cons of this particular product. We are very disappointed, and regret our purchase. April 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Machine What a difference from my previous washing machine. I was originally very happy with that one and sad when it died; because it was a great washer, or so I thought! However when I saw how much better and cleaner my clothes could possibly be I was totally amazed. I've been using it for @ 3 months and not even 1 compliant! Now that's saying something. Clothes take less time to dry; yet are not all wrinkly when the come out of the machine. This gentle cycle allows me to wash items I previously used to do by hand and now saves me time to do other things! All in all I would highly recommend this washer to anyone who needs a new one or just wants a great machine. I wish the old one (not really that old @ 3 years) died earlier! Great price for an awesome washer and a beautiful looking one as well! My compliments to Whirlpool. Great Job!!! March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than I expected I had a lot of reservations about going to a front load but made the choice because I do a LOT of laundry. In my old machine 3-5 loads a day and in this machine 1-2, which save enormously on my time. I heard a lot of bad stories about moldy smell -- I've only had it a couple months, but no such smell, plus I wipe out any moisture in the rubber seal after each load and leave the door open - so I'm hoping to avoid that. I am very pleased with the various features. One tip I would give owners with children: the rubber seal is a great stealer of little socks. One suggestion for improvement: it would be nice if you could order it and specify which way for the door to open as with my small space it is somewhat awkward as is. This is my first "computerized" appliance so I'm hoping the chip lasts a long time :) March 27, 2014
