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.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 447 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by My First New Clothes Washer I am very happy with this washer, for my first new ever. My clothes are coming out very clean and are not suffering damage from the old washer (top-loader). Quiet, if it didn't beep when done, I wouldn't hear it running. Filling with water at the beginning of the cycle Is the loudest part, barely a moment. I really like having a cycle to clean the washer. I sometimes have very dirty clothes to wash, and like having a clean washer to use for the next load. Ok, this seems small, but my fav new feature is this (pic), no longer having to lift the heavy detergent bottle and pour out a few ounces....WooHoo!! December 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Washer My Whirlpool Duet Washer is still cleaning up all my messes 5 years later. I have never needed a repair and my wash loads are pretty heavy. The beauty of a front loader without an agitator is no more uneven loads making your washer do the Tango across your laundry room floor. I did experience the mildew smell in the beginning and was pretty sure I'd return the washer. The heat and humidity in South Florida can make whatever issue there might be with a washer, 5 times worse. I did an experiment with store bought detergents and still had a little odor. The only thing that worked and it worked beautifully, was making my own. I use Washing Soda, Borax and Fels Naptha soap and haven't had so much of a hint of that yucky smell. From my experience, it's not the washer or the rubber, it's the detergent. My food processor is taking a beating with my detergent making but my Whirlpool Duet is running like a champ.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great washer Had to comment on prior review that only gave this washer 3 stars because their prior washer (a different brand) only lasted 7 years. My prior Duet lasted 13 1/2 years with almost daily use. The only problem was a pump replacement because coins were left in wash. This new washer runs much more smoothly than the prior one and I hope to get at least as long a life out of it. You have to figure the energy efficiency and low water usage into the long term cost when deciding if this is the washer for you. It's also much easier on clothes than a top loader. August 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliable, quiet machine This is my second Whirlpool Duet washer. My first was 13 years old and was used nearly daily multiple times. When it became clear that the cost to repair it was only about $200 less than buying a brand new washer, we knew we wanted another Duet. The clothes come out slightly damp, so dry quicker. I didn't want the steam feature of the higher priced Duet. For my purposes, lots of laundry (10+ loads a week!) for a family of 4 and a dog, I knew the Duet would be a good choice. We had such good luck with our first washer, we didn't feel the need to shop around and compare other brands. This is a quiet, reliable washing machine that is quality built at a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish & A Good Value Nice size drum, handles a good size load well. Quiet except for the buttons, very musical and loud, wish the sound could be muted. LOVE the delayed wash feature, I can set the machine to start hours later if I wanted to, which is great for Florida, cause clothes go stale easy here and if you don't dry them quickly they smell. With the delayed start, my load can wash just before I get home and then they don't have a chance to go stale. I wish the door was reversible, the direction it opens is awkward for where I have it, but it works just fine. December 1, 2014
