is there a pause to add more clothes?

Asked by: dcassa
Yes, just touch the start button and it will pause and you will hear a click and the door lock light will turn off and the add garment light will come on. After you add the clothes just touch the start button again.

water and true capacity

I keep reading that these machines have good water levels and can handle 18 pairs of jeans and its never the case. I just returned a Samsung "excellent water levels" if a 5 gallon maximum is excellent didn't work for me! It supposedly could wash 15 bath towels! if you were ok with only 4 of them getting wet. What is the reality with this Whirlpool front loader machine and it's my first front loader and I keep hearing about smells.
Asked by: DirtyLaundry
I just bought this washer but my old duet washer that I had for 12 years could wash about 12-14 pairs of jeans and about 14 towels with no problem. I haven't put that many in this one yet but I don't see a problem with this one doing the same. I just washed 10 towels today without any problems and they were the extra large ones.

How durable is this washer? Can it handle 15+ loads a week?

Our family is quite large and does a considerable amount of wash. We have been through two washers in the last five years. Would this washer be durable enough to handle 15 or more loads of laundry a week?
Asked by: admrose
im sure it can! I don't use it that often, maybe twice a week. large capacity

Customer Reviews

Duet 4.1 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Load Washer with Steam in Chrome Shadow, ENERGY STAR-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 2341.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mildew problems We like to conserve energy and water and were initially happy to buy this washer. Overtime, it has become clear that there is a design problem with the gasket. It does not dry well and mildew takes over. No amount of bleach, hydrogen peroxide or elbow grease has resolved this ongoing issue. Yes, we've left the door open and used less detergent. The problem seems to be in the design and we feel ripped off, particularly as there has been a class action suit for this very same problem on earlier models. Our next step is to have the gasket replaced. After that, if the issue continues, it's back to a top load washer for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Converted From Top to Front Load Washing Machine This is my first time ever owning a front load washing machine (builder install) but this Whirlpool Washer has completely converted me!! I am a Believer!! For years I had the standard top loader as I was fearful of bending down to do laundry because of lower back problems. Now I actually look forward to washing clothes without any back discomfort. There are so many options but I LOVE the Express Wash which I use daily. My clothes not only come out cleaner in record time but they are not as beat up or wrinkled like my previous machine. I can also wash larger items like blankets, dog beds and king sheets without worrying about my machine sounding like it is going to break apart. I really can't believe I wasted all these years on conventional washers when this Whirlpool washer has made my life so much easier. So Simple to use. Just Toss and Wash.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Been using mine 5 yrd I've had my duet a little over 5 yrs. It does a great job. I wish it had shorter cycles, but clothes are always clean. My only complaints are the baby socks getting stuck in the rubber gasket and the door had always had a slight leak.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Replacement Washer I bought this in September 2016 to replace a 12 year old Whirlpool Duet Washer. Looks good and functions well. Also fits on the same Base as my 12 year old Whirlpool [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great front load washing machine I purchased this washer on sale after my last front load high-end washer (another vendor) broke after only 5 years. Perhaps my expectations are too high, but I expected it to last closer to 8 years. This machine has a few less bells and whistles, but it does a great job. Small and large loads come clean; and the machine is surprisingly quiet. So complaints.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from THE WORST This machine is TERRIBLE. It leaks, it doesn't clean clothes, the quick cycle gets stuck on 8 minutes, sloshes your clothes around, then stops - leaving your clothes DRENCHED so you have to ring them out or do a regular hour-long wash. Terrible product. Extremely disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Have had major problems with the spin cycle. I would not buy another one of these washers again. I've had continuous problems with the controls and the spin cycle on every wash setting it has.
