Product Overview

Preserve the perfect fit with an HE front load washer designed featuring the Precision Dispense Ultra, the 12-Hour FanFresh option with Dynamic Venting Technology and Active Spray technology. Precision Dispense Ultra holds enough detergent for up to 36 loads, making the laundry process easier. The 12-Hour FanFresh option with Dynamic Venting Technology activates a built-in fan after the wash cycle is over, tumbling clothes for up to 12 hours so you can wash and dry a small load right in the washer. Active Spray technology sprays the load with detergent in a cone shaped pattern to completely and evenly cover the fabrics. It's the complete fabric care package! Plus, the direct drive motor allows this washer to spin faster and because it uses fewer moving parts, there's less wear and tear over time. And buy with confidence knowing that this model is dependably designed, engineered, and assembled in the U.S.A.

We have this exact dryer and have had nothing but problems with it. Is there any sort of a recall on this or any of its parts?

The model you have attached your question to is a Whirlpool Duet Front Load Washer, not a dryer. For this particular model it was well received and performed great. However, in many cases with washers and in order to keep up with federal guidelines on water and energy usage we simply transition washers and matching dryers to meet and exceed those demands.

Lully,
You do not have to use the automatic dispenser. You can put detergent in the washer for each load. This is just an option that is offered. Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool home appliance.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very easy to use So far so good, very happy with this machine [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] May 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Absolutely Amazing! We purchased this when we moved into our new home and couldn't be happier! Great product from a respectable, reliable company. November 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Changing the world order, one front load washer at a time So I replaced my 10 year old washing machine during the summer when my teen age granddaughter was away at summer camp. I knew she'd bring a load of dirty clothes home so I was prepared. When she saw the machine function after the first load, she did the rest of her laundry and that of everyone else in the house...hasn't stopped yet! It's the lights, the sounds, the speed, the quiet functions, everything a teenager doing laundry would wish for in their world. Even my husband gets a chance to dump in his fishing clothes from time to time. This has changed the world order in our house. September 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great looking and features galore I bought this to replace a 12-year old washing machine.The unit works great and looks good. I have not used the steam feature, so I can't comment on that yet. The only thing that took me a few weeks to figure out was the dispenser function. I was pleasantly surprised to know that I no longer had to measure the detergent but the washer would figure out how much was needed. This is a great feature and I am really enjoying that convenience. I also purchased the matching dryer and the units look very classy and elegant. Not something I would have thought to say about a washer and dryer. November 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I LOVE THIS WASHER I bought this a month ago and LOVE it. It replaced a Whirlpool washer that was about 30 years old and was STILL working. Just wanted to update my laundry room. May 31, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Go Whirlpool This is the second washer I have purchased from Whirlpool. I was not disappointed with my first. It's performance and durability was more than I expected. I am now relocating and decided I would purchase a new washer and also a dryer. Well needless to say family and friends came scrambling to see if I would be taking my washer with me, which is 17 yrs old. I had to decide who would get it. Do you think I would buy any other machine other than a Whirlpool? Technology has progress over the years and Whirlpool is leading them all. And it looks good too. I LOVE MY NEW WASHER August 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent washer I love this machine! It really does "think" for itself. As long as I add laundry soap, it "decides" how much to use based on the load size. I like that there are multiple wash temps, not just hot and cold, and multiple spin speeds for spinning various types of laundry. My only con would be that loads can take a long time to wash - over an hour in most cases (though this is a 4.3 cu ft washer). There is a "quick" wash cycle that takes about 30 min if you do need something washed quickly, but I don't think I'd fill the washer with clothes for this cycle. August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The whirlpool is fine machine, thanks We had are last whirlpool machine 8 years it was used, and we work the machine hard. We have dogs in the house, we wash rugs and dog beds , along with the everyday laundry . It's a great product , so high tech ,I have not used all the options . I'm sure my gas bill for the dryer is less because of the new machine, less water in my clothes, faster drying time. thanks January 23, 2015
