Whirlpool WFW96HEAW Reviews & Ratings

WFW96HEAW 4.3 cu. ft. Duet Front Load Washer with Precision Dispense Ultra, 12 Automatic Cycles, 5 Temperature Settings, Direct Drive Motor, Normal/Casual Cycle and Internal Water Heater 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.

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.
How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covegrey.
How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.
Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.
What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.
Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.
May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covegrey product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.
Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
When does my warranty start?
Depending on the type of coverage you own, an extended warranty begins at the conclusion of the shortest portion of the manufacturer’s warranty. If the manufacturer’s warranty was 90 day labor and 1 year parts, the extended warranty would begin on the 91st day and continue for the duration of the warranty period. All replacement, commercial and accidental plans begin on the date of purchase.
Why does my plan say "under $1000"?
Some plans carry a dollar value on them. This means that your product's purchase price, excluding tax, delivery and accessories is below the listed price on the contract. It's simply a classification based on the price of purchase of the product under warranty.
What does an accidental plan cover?
If you have added Accidental Coverage to your plan, this plan shall cover unintentional damages as a result of: impact, liquid damage or unintentional physical damage. Accidental Coverage does not cover intentional damages of any kind to the covered product or losses due to theft. Accidental Coverage does not cover willful damage, misuse, damage due to neglect, drops over 6 feet, fire damage or full immersion in water.

Accidental Coverage does not cover damage caused by the use of a product in a way the manufacturer never intended. Coverage for this plan shall begin 30 days after the date of purchase of the covered product.
Is my service plan worldwide?
All plans carry a worldwide option at no additional charge. Contact a sales professional for further details.
Who do I contact with further questions?
Please contact a sales professional at 1-800-299-9470.
