Whirlpool WFW96HEAW Reviews & Ratings

WFW96HEAW 4.3 cu. ft. Duet Front Load Washer With Precision Dispense Ultra, 12 Automatic Cycles, QuietSpin Technology, 5 Temperature Settings, Direct Drive Motor, Normal/Casual Cycle & In White is rated 4.5989 out of 5 by 177.
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 2 out of 5 by from The machine isn't as smart as it thinks This appliance not only has too few – if any – options to customize settings, it is far too temperamental. Failing to touching the controls in a certain way causes problems, most times it must be turned off and on again to change a cycle. Overall, the machine's sensors are meant to make it smarter than humans, but it's not. In spite of telling it that our detergent is super (6x) strong and diluting the detergent, it still dispenses too much in the delicate cycle. All in all – including three service visits which basically underscored the quirks you have to live with – the performance isn't worth the price, any price. I would say the same for the companion dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the precision dispense and fan fresh features! This washer makes the task of doing laundry so much easier. The precision dispense feature saves time and effort by eliminating an entire step in the laundry process. I just load the clothes, choose my settings, and go! I could never again own another washer without this feature. The fan fresh option is great too. I can wash clothes in the morning and return at the day's end without worry of mildew on our clothing. It's perfect for a busy family lifestyle. I have even had out-of-town visitors remark how clean their clothing is after using our washer. I absolutely love this product and would highly recommend it!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this product! This washing machine does not use enough water to clean or rinse the clothes. When washing or rinsing there is no visible water in the bottom of the tub at all. What little water the machine dispenses is absorbed by the clothes and they just beat each other to get clean. Even while using the extra rinse option and fabric softener, the clothes come out of the dryer stiff. The cycles are extremely long too. Most of the cycles take and hour and a half and longer if you add the extra rinse cycle. The end of cycle signal cannot be turned down, only on or off. I would not recommend this washing machine to anyone!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like, like, like this washer We have been using the washer for three months. Six persons are feeding laundry into it so it is getting a lot of use. Only one disappointment, the door is not reversible, but I knew this when buying. The washer is very quiet and does not move from its location. The auto detergent dispenser lasts for over six loads and the laundry does not smell like detergent, but it is clean. In prior washers the normal cycle would be selected and never changed. All of the cycles are being used and they are different. Finally it spins the laundry at a very high RPM which means the Dryer does not have to work as hard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! We bought this washer and dryer duet. I could not even begin to tell you how much we LOVE these machines. My clothes are almost dry when they come out of the washer. I have not ironed the first blouse, skirt or shorts since we bought these. The steam cycle is the best invention ever. They are large machines and take up a lot of our laundry room but we did not have a problem with this as they only thing we go in there for is to do laundry. These machines hold LARGE loads! Definitely worth the investment. The lint filter on the dryer is so easy to clean. One of the determining factors in buying a new set as the other lint filter was a poor design. GREAT GREAT products!!! OH, very quiet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NEW WHIRLPOOL bought new Samsung returned. We love this washer I especially love the multi-load auto detergent dispenser which at first I thought was a gimmick but has turned out to be my most liked feature. I like the option of changing the spin speed from the default setting to my choice.Im sure there are more features that i haven't tried and some I have not listed. On the negative side we are very careful to dry the washer drum, plastic bubble, Rubber Gasket and to leave the door open until bedtime to make sure gasket is entirely dry. The top of ours gets quite dusty maybe the dryer hose is not on properly. Thank you for a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a good product Lots of choices for wash & dry cycles but frustrating that not all options are available on all cycles. For instance some dryer cycles do not allow you to choose the static control option-why? Steam option is only available on some--and the steam refresh can't be set for less than 30 minutes. All current advice from repairmen & sales folks says stay away from liquid detergents to avoid problems, yet manufacturers continue to make machines made to use liquids. For this much money, it seems as if they could make liquids that don't cause buildup & mold problems in washers, or build washers that can handle the liquid soaps. Wash cycles seem to clean well, but take a long time on each cycle.
