Keep clothes looking newer longer with the Whirlpool 4.3 cu. ft. front load washer. Using adaptive wash actions and a concentrated solution of HE detergent, the Cold Wash cycle gently lifts stains and soils from fabrics to deliver the best care for your clothes. Precision Dispense takes the guesswork out of adding detergent, bleach and other additives by releasing them at the correct time during the cycle for optimal fabric care. Detergent mixes with water to penetrate fabrics and virtually eliminate the need for pretreating. Tap Touch controls allow direct access to cycles and options like the TumbleFresh option. It keeps clothes fresh and reduces wrinkles by tumbling clothes after the cycle's end for up to 6 hours. The direct drive motor allows this washer to spin faster and it uses fewer moving parts so there's less wear and tear over time. Rated a Best Buy (according to a leading consumer magazine). And buy with even more confidence knowing that this model is dependably designed, engineered, and assembled in the U.S.A.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 200 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This washing machine is great! I haven't had this washing machine long,but I'am very satisfied with it.It hold a lot of laundry and it washes great,it cuts down on drying time because of the great spin cycle. September 26, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Still on the fence with this one Bought on a Saturday and we brought it home and installed it ourselves. Very first did not work. Filled to the brim with water and we had to unplug the machine to get it to stop. Totally freaked out!!! Plugged machine back it and set to spin to get water out. It flashed us two different error codes.We could not get our clothes out of the machine because the lock was set. It took forever before it unlocked. Called for repair on Monday and HELD FOR ALMOST AN HOUR!!!!!! First repair guy out (local) all he did was lecture me on why I would every buy a front loader. He literally did NOTHING on my machine. He did not even pull it away from the wall. He did not address the codes either. I asked repeatedly about them. I demanded that Whirlpool send some other person out. Found a great guy almost 100 miles away (we live in a very rural area) This guy told me the problem was a manufacturer's defect. He was shocked that it was never checked before it was shipped out. There was no way it could have ever worked with the defect. He corrected problem quickly and also replaced the level switch. Machine is not near as quiet as I thought it would be. It is actually rather loud on the spin cycle. No way, that I can figure out, to turn off the signal sound. Handle grasp is in an odd position. Even the good repair man mentioned that. Another issue I have is that it does not have a simple rinse and spin cycle on the dial. You have to run a wash cycle without detergent and manually stop it after the wash and first spin cycle is complete. It is hard to say whether I would suggest the washer or not. I understand that things happen with defects. But still, it is certainly not quiet and I cannot understand why I cannot turn off the signal or why it does not have a rinse/spin option. March 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Value No Problems So Far. After 1 Month Performs as described. May 13, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LEAKS WATER WASHER LEAKS water on the floor Bought the Duet washer from Home Depot. Within 2 weeks it started leaking enough that it required a towel to wash clothes. Door gasket replaced but WASHER STILL LEAKS. Not a desirable "feature" in a clothes washer. December 17, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very clean looking in white Great product for the money compared to other brands of similar style and size. October 18, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great! Great. Much more than we expected, thanks. June 3, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Features & Cleans Clothes Excellently I was a bit intimidated at first with all the features as this is my first HE washer but found it was very user friendly. Washes the great & was everything I expected. The only thing I don't like is it takes a long time to wash & you have to make sure that you clean it at least once a month. I also wipe down the seal, door, & soap dispenser after each use to avoid mold as I was told HE front loader washers are susceptible to getting & then your clothes will smell. April 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fabulous Features!!I I absolutely love this washer!! It does such a great job! Our washer is in such a tight area, I Love that I can lock the front of it so that when someone walks by it they don't turn it on or off! It does such a great job on a small load or a large load! It's super gentle with my delicates! Overall I am very very pleased with our purchase!! March 17, 2015
