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.

Can you use the "Pod" type detergent in this washer? If you can, where do you put it - in the dispenser or in the drum with the clothes?

Answer: 
Put them in the drum, but don't use pre-soak options if you do this as you'll waste water and time from the wash cycles because the pre-soak water will drain first. The tank for liquid soap is removable and there are instructions for one-time use, but pods usually go in the drum.

Answer: 
lully,
This washer is designed to use the powder or liquid as there is a dispenser specifically for these types of detergent. However, it is okay to use the pods. You would just throw a pod into the washer before you close the door to start your cycle. Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool Front Load Washer.

Answer: 
jfloro,
The pedestals have changed a few times and so have the Duet front load washers in the last 8 years. In order to see if an older series pedestal would fit on a new Duet washer, you would need to contact The Home Depot/Whirlpool Hotline and speak with a Parts and Accessory Specialist. They would be able to help determine if this is possible or if there is a part to make it applicable. The number is

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 208 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding Machine This washer and matching dryer are replacing a 9 yr old front loading pair, so we were already familiar with front loaders . This washer far exceeds our expectations. We live in a manufactured home and our previous washer literally shook the laundry room and adjacent bedroom. This washer is super quiet and the vibration is non-existent. Anyone who is not familiar with the low water usage of front loaders will be fearful of the water level, but each load has come out fresh and clean. It is crazy, but we actually try to dirty as many clothes as possible just to use the machine. The built-in drum light was an unexpected, but pleasant feature - no more reaching around in side a dark drum to see if you got all of the clothes. We highly recommend the pedestals as well. The large capacity pull-out drawers with adjustable center divider means our bulky detergent bottles can now be stowed below. OMG! All this talk about the washer makes me want to go toss in a load - buy it - it's that simple. July 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent technology Very quiet machine with great laundry results [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] May 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by quiet operation and less water i bought this front loader after my old top load washer died after 10 yrs. It seems to work great, use less water, and is very, very quiet. The clothes are cleaner and since we can pre-load detergent, we only have to add detergent ~once a week. it also doesn't create as much lint! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] May 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Washer! This washer does a great job at cleaning laundry. Our water bill keeps dropping each month, which is a testament to the washer's water conservation. I also like the ability to pour liquid detergent in the reservoir, which the machine measures out in the proper amount. This eliminates the need to individually measure the amount of soap needed for each load. The washer also permits you to program the detergent concentration and water hardness. February 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So happy! I love how easy this machine is on my clothes, but how thoroughly it cleans them at the same time. The spin stage does such a great job, making the drying time so quick. The clothes come out feeling soft, despite the fact that I don't use fabric softener. I don't understand, but it makes me happy! February 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by can't access drain pump filter without removing top, control panel, gasket, disconnecting wires, and removing entire front panel Every other front loader I have ever owned or seen allowed access to the drain pump filter which invariably needs to be cleaned every year or so by removing a few screws and taking part of the front panel off. Now some competitors have made it so you can just open an access door. Whirlpool changed their design so that you have to take apart a large portion of the machine just to get the front panel off making it nearly impossible to clean the filter. DO NOT BUY.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great washer Have had it 2 weeks- it's great! Works well. Clothes really clean and almost dry when done. November 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice washer Pros: Cleans the laundry very well, large capacity (less wrinkles), soap dispenser/tank (don't have to fill it every wash), light inside, presoak options, many other features. Cons: Wash times fairly long, timer is not very accurate (usually takes longer than it says), small fonts on feature selection buttons (hard to read), probably a bit higher manufacturer price than it needs to be but Consumer Reports says reliability is good so long term cost should work out. Home Depot price and delivery was excellent. December 10, 2013
