is there a pause to add more clothes?

Asked by: dcassa
Yes, just touch the start button and it will pause and you will hear a click and the door lock light will turn off and the add garment light will come on. After you add the clothes just touch the start button again.

water and true capacity

I keep reading that these machines have good water levels and can handle 18 pairs of jeans and its never the case. I just returned a Samsung "excellent water levels" if a 5 gallon maximum is excellent didn't work for me! It supposedly could wash 15 bath towels! if you were ok with only 4 of them getting wet. What is the reality with this Whirlpool front loader machine and it's my first front loader and I keep hearing about smells.
Asked by: DirtyLaundry
I just bought this washer but my old duet washer that I had for 12 years could wash about 12-14 pairs of jeans and about 14 towels with no problem. I haven't put that many in this one yet but I don't see a problem with this one doing the same. I just washed 10 towels today without any problems and they were the extra large ones.

How durable is this washer? Can it handle 15+ loads a week?

Our family is quite large and does a considerable amount of wash. We have been through two washers in the last five years. Would this washer be durable enough to handle 15 or more loads of laundry a week?
Asked by: admrose
im sure it can! I don't use it that often, maybe twice a week. large capacity

Customer Reviews

Duet 4.1 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Load Washer with Steam in Chrome Shadow, ENERGY STAR-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 2297.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great front load washing machine I purchased this washer on sale after my last front load high-end washer (another vendor) broke after only 5 years. Perhaps my expectations are too high, but I expected it to last closer to 8 years. This machine has a few less bells and whistles, but it does a great job. Small and large loads come clean; and the machine is surprisingly quiet. So far...no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This washer is durable, quiet, and cleans wonderfully! I've had this washer almost a month- so far so good! I chose to spend a little more money on a Whirpool and so far it's been worth every penny. One downfall: As a woman, I have tiny socks that get stuck in the rubber surrounding the washer tub, so you just have to check before unloading to dryer so that you won't have missing socks! I also highly recommend leaving the door open to air out, as it contains some water that may cause mold in the long run if not aired out properly. I also air out the detergent drawer, it comes out completely and I just sit it on top of washer to air out completely before next use. If you're reading this and wondering if it's a great machine- IT IS! I spent quite a while researching reviews and so far 100% happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy Love this washer! Been using a little over a month with no problems. I did a ton of research on washers and picked this one after reading a lot of reviews. So far I'm not disappointed.
Date published: 2014-01-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with Product and Even More Happy with Home Depot Service Product is Great! Since this is my first front loader wasn't aware of cycle times being over an hour on my most special cycle loads, but I guess more time in washer the cleaner idems get so I'm adjusting. Only complaint is that small items, like toddler socks can slide under the door during wash cycle and into rubber seal area and stay there during entire wash. But other than that machine runs great. Service at Home Depot was excellent too! Purchased item on 10/3, noticed on 10/11 item was on sale for $290 less than what I paid for it, called them up and they refunded me the difference and I paid sale price! Very happy with that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worry free washing and easy to use This washer has a lot of options but is surprisingly simple and easy to use. The clothes come out clean and the whole process is made enjoyable, for a change.
Date published: 2013-09-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Product I purchased the Whirlpool to replace a 10 year old competitor front load washer. The Whirlpool is so much quieter and has almost no vibration even during the spin cycle. We love it and cannot even tell when it is running. Its only been installed 30 days so its a bit early to comment on reliability.
Date published: 2014-01-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Be ready for repairs We had two of these over a period of years and we had to replace them every five years. The front ring gathered mildew even when the door was left open like the manufacturer recommended. We had to have it serviced every single year. It did not clean clothes well at all and the front ring stained much of our clothes. The features were great and aesthetically looked quite attractive and the pedestals were great for storage. This is one of those sounds great and looks great but doesn't do the job and has expensive maintenance. In conclusion, I will never buy a Whirlpool Duet again. I had them hauled away.
Date published: 2014-10-31
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3 washes and its broken I would not recommend this product. It stopped working after only 3 uses. The repairman couldn't figure out what the problem was so he called Whirlpool and they decided to replace a part. Unfortunately, the part is not in stock so we will be at least a month without a washer.
