Product Overview

Colors stay vibrant wash after wash with the 4.2 cu. ft. WHIRLPOOL DUET front load washer. To keep clothes looking newer longer, Adaptive Wash technology senses the needs of each load and releases detergent at the right time during the cycle with Precision Dispense, while wash actions adapt to your load based on cycle and options selected. Plus, the Care Control temperature management system adjusts temperature so water dissolves detergent without overheating. And for even more fabric protection, the sleek interior surface of the Smooth Wave stainless steel wash basket helps prevent fraying and snags, while the Cold Wash cycle uses adaptive wash actions and a concentrated solution of HE detergent and cold water to gently lift stains from fabrics.

Answer: 
No. But if you keep your machines next to each other, and the drain and fill pipes are behind your present machines, the hoses should reach without strain, and will not affect the operation of the machine. That is how I have mine.

Are you leaving wash in the machine long after the cycle is done?
Are you shutting the door right after you get done with the last load on wash-day?
Are you using HE detergent, and in proper amounts? Too much will cause odor issues.
The manual says to remove the wash "promptly". You don't need to stand over it, but anything more than a few hours will lead to issues. Also, the manual says to leave the door open when you are done. I live in a very dry climate, so I DO shut the door after the machine stands overnight.
Open your instruction book to page 13; it should have instructions on how to maintain the machine for odor prevention. Affresh is suggested, but plain old bleach in proper amounts will do the job. Don't over-do, and DON'T run any detergent during the cleaning cycle. The book is not really clear, but the "Clean Washer with Affresh" cycle is not among the regular cycles. It is at the bottom of the dial. Turn the cycle dial until it is pointed straight down ("6 o'clock") for the cleaning cycle. Read Less

2) Are you using a proper HE detergent? You must.
3) Are you leaving the door of the machine opened at least a bit between laundry days? Like the instruction book says: you should. I live in a very dry climate. I keep mine open

First, ask yourself these questions:
1) Are you leaving finished loads of wash in the machine for long periods before moving them to the dryer or clothes line? You shouldn't.
2) Are you using a proper HE detergent? You must.
3) Are you leaving the door of the machine opened at least a bit between laundry days? Like the instruction book says: you should. I live in a very dry climate. I keep mine open after the last load of wash is done, and let it stand open overnight. I then close the door. In two years of owning this machine I have no mold smell at all.
Now, to get rid of the smell, see page 13 of the manual. Set your machine to the "Clean Washer with Affresh" position. The pointer on the dial will be pointed straight down, or "6 o'clock position". See photo.
Then, do one of two things: put one Affresh tablet in the EMPTY tub, shut the door, and start the machine. DO NOT ADD ANY DETERGENT OR BLEACH, ONLY USE THE AFFRESH.
Alternate method: make sure the drum is empty of clothing or anything else. Set the dial to Clean Washer with Affresh as noted above. Open the dispenser drawer, and fill the bleach dispenser to the "Max" line IN BOTH THE BLEACH AND FABRIC SOFTENER dispenser wells. DON'T ADD ANYTHING ELSE. No detergent, for example. Shut the door. Start the machine.
Once this is done. follow the three guidelines I put above. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes, it comes with one drain hose (to drain dirty water from washer to sewer).
The 2 fill hoses for the hot and cold water are not included. The fill hoses are sold separately. You need to buy new fill hoses if you want Home Depot to install or connect the hoses when the washer is delivered.

sally,
The dryer height can be adjusted to level with the washer. The washer has some adjustment as well, but not as much as the dryer. After the washer and dryer are installed and leveled, the appliances should be even in height. Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool home appliance.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 3203 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This is absolutely the worse machine I have ever owned in my life. The screen to clean before going the the drain/pump is not reachable without taking the machine apart. If you don't have animals or your clothes are fairly clean before washing then you will be ok. If you have animals, no matter how much hair you shake off prior to washing..... this machine will break on you repeatedly. Thank goodness I bought the protection plan because after less than 2 years I have already used it at least 3 times. This last time it went completely haywire. With it off and stuck in the lock position, it drains and then instead of opening fills right back up with water. HORRIBLE October 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great washer after 3 months, I'm very happy with this washer. It gets the clothes clean, gets the water out, it's quiet, the controls can be worked with a touch. I have had some bleach spots on clothes although I rinse the drawer out after using bleach. And I would like to be able to use hot water on more cycles. I haven't had any mold problems, but I'm able to leave the door open most of the time. September 7, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Meh With the exception of the spin cycle getting out more water than other machines I have used this new clothing cleaner is just average to me. I was surprised and don't particularly care for how loud the contraption is during its initial five minutes of it starting a laundry cycle. I just surmised that with it being 2016 and all, and we don't yet have personal flying cars, the least we could have is a really quiet washing machine that doesn't cost over one thousand dollars. Though that is not this model. It has cleaned my clothes these last several weeks and that is what it was bought for. But overall, seriously, Meh~. Spike August 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Broke down after 19 months If there was a zero star that is what I would score it. We purchased this washer for it's variety of settings and the special steam function. After 19 months, 2 of the settings (heavy duty and towels) ceased to function. We did not purchase a warranty as one would expect a quality whirlpool product to last more than 19 months. Would not recommend this product, nor will I ever purchase a whirlpool again. I spoke to customer service who tried to sell me on another warranty. They were very unpleasant to work with. August 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DON'T BUY THIS WASHER OR THE EXTENDED WARRANTY!! I purchased this washer and dryer a little over a year ago and it doesn't wash clothes very well, they come out smelling and towels come out smelling like mold. I had to call for service because the rubber gasket ripped and they told me they don't cover it and the glass and all the knobs and buttons so I asked what do you cover? They told me when I made the appointment he wouldn't come out if he didn't have the part with him. Well you can guess he came out and didn't have the part and by the way it's not covered!!!! STICK WITH TOP LOAD WASHERS AND DRYERS WORST $1800.00 I EVER SPENT!!! August 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Collects water in rubber gasket area no resolution! Almost 1 year having this as a replacement to our approx. 5 yr. old WP Duet washer. Only reason we bought is to have them stack. After calling customer service I honestly can't believe the solution is to soak up all that water collecting in the rubber gasket are w/ a towel and to clean after each wash! Don't forget to leave the door open a few inches so it can air out or you will get stink and mold. So I have to have a towel to soak up inches of water after each use and in addition clean it after each load I run. Being our last Duet did NOT do this is this really the solution to such bad engineering? I am now stuck w/ this extra chore of a faulty washer. June 22, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dont Do It! Let me just say that we've had this washer for about 6 months and upon first getting it, I LOVED IT. The unit itself is very nice. But now we've discovered that there is a disgusting colony of mold growing in and under the rubber ring surrounding the front load door. I hear that this is a relatively common problem but it is GROSS. I now do not feel like my clothes are getting clean when I have to pull them out of the washer past something like that. And there is no real solution to this problem besides cleaning it after each use (more work, yay!) and/or leaving the door open (which you can't do with small kids or pets). In hindsight, it would not have been worth it to purchase a washer that requires so much extra maintenance. I'm also disappointed that the HD employee that recommended this unit did not mention this concern as we were purchasing! August 22, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not dependable Have had this machine for 2 mos and still has not been fixed.For the 1st 3 weeks, spin great. Clothes came out nearly dry. Since then, will go into high speed spin every now and then. Have to put it on spin and drain an then sometimes will not come out less than very damp. Had service man over three times. replaced two parts and still ot good. parts an still not rightAm spending a lot on double dryong in the dryer. Now service man wants me to put fabric softener in clean cycle. Still no good..I have owned a he washer for 11 years before this with no spin problems, should have kept that and had it fixed and ot buy this gem May 27, 2016
