Always stay connected to your Whirlpool Smart front load washer with 6th Sense Live technology and Nest Learning Thermostat compatibility. Whirlpool brand and Nest have taken the first step in their collaboration with a "Works with Nest" washer and dryer that integrates with the Nest Learning Thermostat. The laundry pair connects seamlessly with the Nest Learning Thermostat to leverage Nest's Home and Away modes. Both the washer and dryer can keep clothes fresh if a cycle ends while the consumer is not home. The dryer can also switch into a slightly longer, more energy-efficient cycle if the consumer is away. This model pairs these exciting new technologies with the exceptional features you expect, including Precision Dispense Ultra, Quiet Spin 360 technology and the FanFresh option with Dynamic Venting Technology. (Whirlpool Smart App also available without Nest Learning Thermostat)

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Confused by basic feature Washer came in today, it looks great! However, ran into a question without an answer before the first use. The Precision dispense. The manual says to select the soap concentration being used. Options are: 1X, 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X, and 6X. The manual also suggests using Tide products. (Great, I already use that) However, Tide does not advertise or label their products with a concentration level. Ok, so the manual say consult the manufacturer's website. Checked it out... nothing. Checked a local store, not sure I saw any products advertised in this way. Confused that a newly designed washer, with the manufacturer's recommended brand of product, does not align to the actual detergent product. February 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great, but loud locking when starting! Great with all functions and choices of washing regimes, but one thing what I don't like is. When I press START button and hold to begin washing, there is three loud door locking mechanism noises. It "shoots" like it will pop out electric magnet out of the washer. Are you getting same noises too, do they bother you? It wakes my kids who sleeps right over the laundry room. January 28, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NOT READY FOR CONSUMERS This product is not ready for the consumer market. The mobile app that supposedly supports the wireless connectivity does not work on all iphones (or at least not on my iphone 5S). And what makes troubleshooting issues with the app tricky is that the app was not developed by Whirlpool. It was developed by a third party company. Aside from having issues with the key wireless features that make this product sound so amazing we also had issues with the installation. I'll spare you the details and just emphasize a couple of things. • IF YOU WANT TO STACK THE UNITS - PURCHASE A STACKING KIT. Otherwise they'll have to reschedule your install. • IF YOU'RE SWITCHING THE DOOR HINGE (On the dryer) - UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE LET THE INSTALL TEAM REMOVE THE PLASTIC FILM COVERING THE DOOR DURING THE INSTALL. I would even make sure they lay down a soft towel. January 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love WiFi connection! Really like the connectivity of this washer! Keeps me out of trouble with my wife :-). Many times in the past she asks me to move the clothes from the washer to the dryer, I usually would forget...not now. This washer is connected and sends me an alert when it is done - my reminder to move the clothes to the dryer! Thank you Whirlpool for keeping me out of trouble! Oh, and the number of feature are great and it does a GREAT job of the core function...cleans me clothes! November 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nothing short of fantastic! We took delivery of this a little over a month ago. It is a replacement of our previous Duet and the evolution of this model is amazing. The detergent cartridge is not only convenient but keeps the detergent tray clean and tidy as compared to the gen1 model. The smart features of this model as well are fantastic. I could go on and on about how wonderful this washer is! November 8, 2014
