If I could have given this a negative star I would have! Very frustrated with this washer purchased a few months ago...should have read the reviews before I bought it as the ones on Feb. 5,7,11,16 already spoke to the problem and that was the most recent reviews. This machine was great for the first 2 months and I loved it...then it stopped spinning the clothes dry enough to put in the dryer. I often have to run them again on drain/spin to get them dry enough for the dryer... our dryer is now struggling and I guess so...we have been putting very damp clothes in for months now. We are guessing this problem will cause us to replace the dryer soon too. An added expense because of our problem with this Whirlpool washer. It takes forever to do laundry now and I have to babysit the loads and pick and choose what needs to be washed the most in hopes I don't have to wait for another cycle to spin/drain and then dry them. Now drying takes forever as we have to restart the dryer several times to complete drying and often give up and string clothes all around the laundry room to air dry. Service has been out 2 times and a 3rd time to put on a new 'mother board' hoping that would help...it did not. I was given a pep talk on how to wash clothes and sort them and how much detergent to use! This is my 3rd front loader in 13 years and I am 56 years old...I know how to sort and wash clothes. However, I have had to alter my options with this washer and accept smaller loads and they are still coming out wet. This washer is making laundry a nightmare and like other working moms, I don't need this extra stress! Last week I put in one small throw off the sofa...just one...and it came out soaking wet...not damp...water was dripping! I called for a 3rd service call and was scheduled for this morning to find out that the service company they were sending does not service my area any more so I have cleared my busy schedule today for nothing!...Would have been nice to know that piece of info while I was waiting on them to come this morning and scheduling my day. I asked for a different tech this time as it was hard to maintain my composure when the previous one gave me the tutorial on how to wash clothes and this was the kicker when we talked about the quick cycle...his analogy and I quote...'you can speed down the highway for a while and it's all ok but, there is a good chance you will eventually get caught speeding and get a ticket and realize you should not speed anymore...therefore, using the quick cycle for a while was an ok option at first and now it's not so I should stop using it'! Oh boy! I am a professional so I did not tell the nice gentleman what I really thought of his comment...but, I did make these facts clear and I hope whoever reads this from Whirlpool will internalize them...my problem with this washer happens on ALL cycles...it was great for a couple of months and stopped spinning our clothes...even the smallest loads adequately...I know how to sort and wash clothes and have had to become even more equipped to do so with such an inadequate washer...and honestly, if quick wash is not a good option why did Whirlpool put it on the machine. I am a designer and work with commercial and residential projects and often get to purchase the appliance packages for builders and homeowners...I would not want others to have the journey I am having with this washer and will remember this...and being in this business I also know that customer service is key and hope Whirlpool does not disappoint me and the audience I work for. I realize sometimes appliances stop working properly and even though the tech says his 'diagnostic' equipment is not giving him a reading of a problem...my very wet clothes are. Common sense sometimes has to come into play and I hope Whirlpool will agree. I have purchased appliances for my projects from the same big box store for years...I hope they don't disappoint us either. I have used the word 'hope' a lot...so, I guess I am still hopeful this will have a positive outcome as we continue to address a very obvious problem.

front load Washer

By ed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool® Duet® 4.8 Cu. Ft. High-Efficiency Front-Load Washer - White:

Cleans well, water efficient. Front touch pad too sensitive, just brush by it and it changes settings. Can't use top of washer for spotting, etc. because of this.
A little louder than I expected.

Fast and quiet!

By Runner Bean

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool® Duet® 4.8 Cu. Ft. High-Efficiency Front-Load Washer - White:

I invested in my new washer and dryer after my 17 year old washer began to sound like a B52 bomber! I couldn't be more pleased, my washer is faster, very quiet, economical and my clothes are cleaner. I'm thrilled as I was able to wash my summer duvet with no problem.
I tend to use the "timed dry" setting on the dryer, very efficient, very little wrinkling.
I am one happy woman!

8 months- now not rinsing clothes properly, clothes still we

By JavaandJazz

from Ansonia, CT

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool® Duet® 4.8 Cu. Ft. High-Efficiency Front-Load Washer - White:

I've had this machine 8 months now and there are only 2 of us that use it 2-3 per week and I've noticed in the last 2-3 weeks the clothes have been coming out much wetter than normal. I looked in the guide under trouble shooting and I don't see anything that could be a problem. The drain hose has not moved deeper into the drain pipe, I use HE detergent, there are not clothes stuck to the side of the drum...etc. I'm going to call for a service request this afternoon. I have had sour smelling clothes and did use the afresh tablets with success to clean up the odor. I keep the door open in between loads but wonder why I still get the sour smelling clothes. I want to be impressed by this machine but not sure yet. Oh and one other thing, within the first week of using it I got an error code for no reason.
