This Duet® Steam High Efficiency Washer from Whirlpool will be the best addition to your laundry room. It features clean boost option with steam, 4.3 cu. ft. capacity, presoak option, tumblefresh option, precision dispense and 14 adaptive wash actions. Available at AppliancesConnection


Adaptive Wash Technology
Adaptive Wash technology senses the needs of each load and adapts wash actions so your clothes always look their best and colors stay vibrant wash after wash.

Precision Dispense
Precision Dispense holds detergent and additives and releases detergent at the correct time during the cycle for optimal fabric care. Detergent mixes with water to penetrate fabrics and virtually eliminate pretreating.

14 Adaptive Wash Actions
Up to 14 different adaptive wash actions provide a combination of powerful cleaning and gentle fabric care.

TumbleFresh™ Option
The TumbleFresh™ option keeps clothes fresh and reduces wrinkles1 by tumbling clothes periodically after the cycle's end for up to 6 hours. Intermittent tumbling in the washer helps reduce the growth of odor-causing bacteria.

Clean Boost Option with Steam
The Clean Boost option adds the power of steam and increased wash action for even more help in breaking down stains.

Smooth Wave Stainless Steel Wash Basket
The Smooth Wave stainless steel wash basket gently guides clothes through the wash cycle and helps protect fabrics from fraying and snags.

Meets CEE Tier 3 Standards
CEE Tier 3 standard is based on the Consortium for Energy Efficiency qualifying product list. Visit for more information.

ENERGY STAR® Qualified

I have a huge family and we do laundry every day. I love my whirlpool duet front loading washer. The duet system really seams to clean my clothes a lot better than my old washer. I also love the energy savings. I noticed that it does not take as much soap and softener than my older washing machine did. I average a savings of about 300 a year between the energy saving and the laundry soap savings. With a family my size that's a great thing. I will definitely recommend this to my friends.

We purchased this washing machine almost 4 months ago and I use it daily. It cleans the clothing well as far as I can tell. My only complaint is the noise level. It seems to be much louder than my previous washer, but it's easy to use and does the job. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have been using my washer a few months. It does a nice job in cleaning and it is easy to operate. The controls are very easily bumped where they are located. It is the only thing I do not like about the washer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have now owned this washer since 12/31/2015. I can't tell how you pleased I am with it the way it cleans and all the features. After owning a Maytag Atlantis for 11 years prior, that washing machine doesn't compare to how clean and efficient this washer is. I average about 4-5 medium loads of laundry a week. Love the extra hot water feature for sanitizing whites. This could be good for anyone wanting a more environmentally way to avoid bleach. Really like that you can use the soak cycle with any load for better cleaning. I really don't have one negative thing about this washing machine. The panel is easy to read and follow. * I wish that I could truly give this machine a 5+ star rating. But for the sake of viewers, this is not a quiet washer when it is on Extra fast spin. I does sound like a heat seeking missile. But clothes are practically dry. Since my washer is in a nook in my garage, noise isn't an issue with me. *As far as washer smells....I clean the washer monthly using Afresh. Sometimes I alternate with bleach for the heck of it. I do tend to wash my whites last using bleach to keep any possibility of mold occurrence in the washer in check. I leave the door ajar EVERY time. Clean the dispenser every month with vinegar-Dawn solution. I have NOT yet smelled any funky odors. I have NOT once seen ANY mildew, mold or anything else around the doors, seals, or gaskets. Very happy customer!

This washer does everything I want. I am still learning all of the features. It really gets my clothing clean. Very roomy so I can also wash my bedspread if I need to. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
