Whirlpool WFW94HEAC Reviews & Ratings

WFW94HEAC Duet 27" 4.3 cu. ft. Steam Front Load Washer With Precision Dispense, Up to 8 Hour PreSoak Option, Quiet Spin 360 Technology, Steam-Enhanced Cycles and Allergen Cycle, in Chrome Shadow is rated 4.6658 out of 5 by 784.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like it so far... We have had this machine for about 3 months now. We purchased this Whirlpool washer after our previous Whirlpool front load machine had a failure under warranty. We were surprised to see that the price had nearly doubled in four years. This machine is very quite when running. It does a great job of cleaning and offers a variety of setting to wash your clothes. This model has a light inside the wash drum which comes on automatically when the door is opened and is quite handy. Because of the light, we do not keep the door open after use, and so far have not had any issues with smell from the wash drum. We probably use our washer 4-6 times per week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First Front Load Washer This washer was the 2nd one I have ever purchased. My first one is still running, but gave to my parents. I have owned this washer 3/4 of a year and it has worked well. I am hoping I am saving water and electricity with this washer. It also seems more gentle on clothes than my vertical agitator washer. I also like the fact that I can wash a queen size comforter in the washer. The controls of the washer are straight forward. I m very pleased with the washer. The true test will be how long the washer lasts. I picked this model because the motor directly drives the washer so there should be less parts to break and it should be more reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Major electrical savings! I was skeptical of the claims regarding how much the 4.3 cu. ft. Duet? Steam Front Load Washer would hold and how my drying time would be reduced. I'm a believer now! Prior to purchasing the 4.3 cu. ft. Duet? Steam Front Load Washer my typical drying time was 60 - 70 minutes, towels would be more. Now my typical drying time is 47 minutes and I'll probably reduce that a bit more. Towels have become a typical load a thoroughly dry in 47 minutes. I used to wash jeans separately because they took so long to dry but now I just throw them in with my regular load. My electricity bills are declining and I expect they'll continue to decline.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is way to early to review this product. This is the second new machine we have had installed. The first machine failed on the first load of laundry. The electronics had a communication error that even the technician was not able do diagnose what was actually the problem. I was not that impressed that we had to order a new machine already or that we had to have a technician come out to try and repair our new machine before ordering another. I am hoping that the first was only a fluke??? This review comes way to early to be evaluating a new machine as you would hope you would not have problems already. You should also have another option other than Yes or No at this point.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed - poor design, poor performance I've owned 3 sets of Duets, beginning in 2003. The 1st & 2nd sets lived up to their claims about handling family sized loads, 12+ jeans, or two sets of queen sheets with ease. This model will just tolerate one set of queen sheets, or maybe 5 jeans. Forget blankets, or small bath rugs, it won't spin - no matter the settings. Now, I take those "bulky" items to the laundry mat. This machine is not worth the money and is a far cry from the quality of the original Duets. I regret this purchase, it's been a huge disappointment. I've been a loyal Whirlpool customer for 20+ years, recommended and help friends and family purchase Whirlpool as well. Not any more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Duet washer is a dependable, efficient machine My laundry consists of horse clohing - blankets, sheets, saddle pads, towels. I put muddy, hairy laundry in the Duet, and get great results - the items come out fesh & clean without any dirt residue. A problem with horse hair clogging the drain of a competitor's washer caused us to return that washer. We then decided on the Duet, which handles the horse hair extremely well. We've been using our new Duet for 5 months now and are totally satisfied with its performance. It gets the wash very clean with just a small amount of detergent. With its 4.3 cubic feet capacity, we can wash large loads easily. Simply put, our Duet has proven itself to be a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value packed This Duet front load washer has performed very well. We have owned it since May 2014 and have not had any problems. On average we run 1-2 loads laundry per day so it has had a fair workout on nearly all the cycle options. I particularly like the auto detergent dispense feature that takes the guess work out of that process and is less wasteful than I was. A few things to remember 1) run the refresh or other recommended cleaning through the washer when requested, 2) clean the door every so often (per instructions) or it may leak a little until you clean it and 3) we leave our door ajar to avoid any moister build-up between loads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean as a whistle We replaced our old top loading washer with this front loader. It is awesome! Super easy to use, gets whites and colors super bright, and dark colors are clean and crisp. I love the multitude of settings from sanitize to normal. There's even a clean washer setting and reminder feature to automatically let you know when it's time to clean your washer. I've heard people with other brands complain that their washer smells musty and like mildew. Thanks to the featured on this machine, that isn't an issue with the Whirlpool model. Plus, it's made right here in the U.S.A. We absolutely love this machine and it was priced right too! Give it a whirl (no pun intended)!
