Product Overview

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.
  • Massive 4.3 cu. ft. capacity allows you to wash more in a single load, saving both time and energy
  • Stainless steel wash basket resists odors, rust and chipping and the smooth surface helps protect delicate fabrics from snagging
  • Steam-enhanced cycles. Add the power of steam to select wash cycles to eliminate tough stains with virtually no pretreating

  • ENERGY STAR qualified with a CEE Tier III rating: this washer is among the most efficient washers in the industry

  • Adjustable soil level settings allow you to increase or decrease wash time to best meet the cleaning need
  • Automatic Water Level control regulates the amount of water based on the size of the load, only the amount needed to clean is used, increasing efficiency and helping the environment
  • Delay start sets the washer to begin cleaning up to 12 hours later when unloading the washer may be more convenient
  • Optional, separately purchased, laundry pedestal, XHPC155, enhances ease of use. Stackable design provides increased installation choices. Separately purchase stacking kit W10298318RP
  • Quiet Wash Ultra keeps operational sounds inside the washer and out of living areas with sound-absorbing materials around the wash basket

Questions & Answers

Is an extended warranty available?

Asked by: heyho
It may be available but we have had to use it nearly a dozen times for this washer.

What does it mean electronic mechanical as oposed to just electronic as in GE and what makes it different as not to require HD soap?

Asked by: Merna
Merna, Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool Duet. I cannot speak to the other competitors, but for Whirlpool brand, the Electro-Mechanical controls means that the technology uses both an electronic panel and mechanical controls. The control panel is electronic to provide the best technology in giving you the best wash results. The mechanical control would refer to the control knob in selecting the cycle. This front load washer and all of Whirlpool Corporation's High Efficiency washers do require the use of High Efficiency Detergent. HE Detergent is specifically made for washers that use less water. It is designed to provide a better wash, dissolve more easily, and produces low suds. Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool home appliance.

Does this machine have a resevoir for detergent?

I have read of machines which can hold enough detergent for several loads and the machine dispenses the correct amount needed for the wash. Does this machine have this feature?
Asked by: washer woman
washer woman, This particular Whirlpool front load washer does not offer the preloaded detergent dispsener for multiple wash loads before it has to be refilled. However, we do offer that feature on other models. One of these models is; WFW96HEAW. Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool home appliance.

Customer Reviews

Duet 4.3 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Load Washer with Steam in White, ENERGY STAR-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 210.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely Horrible Bought in 2014Followed the maintenance and cleaning instructions by inspecting and cleaning door , tub and seal , spin basket and kept the door open after every load to prevent mildew. Once a month it was cleaned with Afresh.After one year of good performance the unit started leaking with a properly balanced load and correct cycle. I couldn't find the source of the leak and no error codes were present. I hadn't had any issues until last week when on final spin I was awakened to what sounded like an airplane was crashing down . My laundry room , garage and some parts of the hallway was flooded. After inspecting the unit i noticed the water was coming from the front of the unit. I pulled the rubber boot back and found a 3/4 inch wide crack starting on top front right section of the plastic hub. Only 3 years and I have to dish out 650.00 for a new tub assembly . I should have bought the extended service plan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big change for a lifelong top loading user As part of a remodeling project I selected this and the matching dryer and these are the first front loaders I have ever owned. It is surprising to see it operate the first few times as it senses the loads first and then quietly goes through it's cycles. The detergent dispenser also takes some getting used to for someone who used to just dump in a cap full of detergent. There is a max detergent indicator that I would use to fill to the first few times before I realized that was more that a cap full so I was able to cut down on detergent use as well once I got figured that out.Very quiet running machine, have no problems at all, a great choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-09-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A washing machine that makes my life easier! We switched from a top load machine that used a lot of water to this high efficiency front load machine. This machine is easy to use, has a lot of great features (like the delay wash and the allergen cycle) and gets my clothes clean without causing rips like the top load machine did. The end signal is pleasant and not obnoxious. The machine is very quiet and very energy efficient - I actually saw a decrease in my electricity bill. I also like that the machine tells you when you need to do a "machine clean" - it's a good reminder and is a cycle specifically targeted at cleaning the machine. Overall, this is an excellent product and I'm very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine! I bought this 3 months ago, and have enjoyed using it. Pros of the machine include its high efficiency (and lower water use), washing quality, large capacity, and variety of settings (quick wash for an item or two, and washes customized for larger/bulky items like bedspreads). Cons of the machine include the fact that the door doesn't close as smoothly as it first did, and washing times can often run longer than the initial estimated duration depending on the weight of the load.Consumer Reports talks about what a great machine this is, and I agree. Worth the price and great for anyone from an individual to a larger family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This washing machine and dryer duet, take the chore out of d This washing machine and dryer have made it much easier to do one load or multiple loads because of their efficiency. The cycle options are great and the built in sensor works very well. The sounds, if you choose to have them on are very pleasant. It is also easy to control the cycles for the most delicate items to the bulkiest towels and jeans. Our daughter's family recently stayed with us after their home was partially destroyed by the Colorado floods. Needless to say, they came with loads of laundry, which according to my daughter, was washed and dried in record breaking time!Aside from the efficiency of the machines, I love the storage in the pedestals.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst ever This is the worst machine ever. If I had it to do all over again, I would buy any machine but this one.I have had it with this machine turning off mid cycle, even with the controls locked.how can you call it "control lock" if the light is on and all I have to do it lean against the machine for it to power off mid cycle?The last time this happened to me, the washing machine had 7 mins to go in the cycle. I was unloading the stacked drier when I leaned against the power button and it turned off. (?!!!!) I have even put plastic over the button to stop this but it is not a touch sensitive button. It is a pressure sensitive button. Nothing can stop the machine from powering off. I have to restart these loads over, from the beginning.
