Great Washer

My wife and i purchased this washer a few months ago and have been very pleased with the results. Our clothes come out very clean, and it uses minimal water, which in turn means the dryer does not have to run as long to dry. The washer is very quiet, however it is still a moving machine so you will hear some noise. Bit of advice though, and this is true with all front loaders, after you use the washer, leave the door open so the extra small bit of water that is sitting on the rubber can dry quickly. you can run into problems if this water does not dry quickly enough because mildew and mold can accumulate and not allow the door to seal properly during wash.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Out of the box it's awesome

Whirlpool WFW70HEBW front-load washer I wanted to start my review with the actual model number. There are several reviews that are copied over from other models. I've read the same harsh review under multiple machines which makes the overall review value questionable. I am reviewing the machine listed above. I picked this up at sears myself and installed it myself. It is extremely heavy compared to the 17 year old commercial machine it replaced. If you aren't able to carry a couple hundred pounds on a dolly then hire someone. This unit is fairly easy to level but the feet on it are on the cheap side. They seem flimsy and you must jack the machine in the air to adjust the legs. My old machine allowed this to be done with the legs on the ground. This requires you to lift, adjust, check multiple time. This machine needs to be perfectly level. After getting it level you need to check for the slightest of rocking. I made 1/4 turn adjustments to get it flat footed. First load I tired on this machine was 8 pairs of jeans and it washed them very well. They were wet and you could see washer dripping off them as they washed. I've read reviews that the clothes don't even get wet while washing. Thats not the case with this machine. They are well saturated in water. The spin cycle on the washer from time to time starts out with a slight vibration but it smooths out before the final high speed spin. When the clothes come out they are pretty dry. I would say half the water my old machine left in the clothes. This is a real bonus because the matching 7.3cu dryer can dry 8 pairs of jean in a half hor. My old dryer could have never done that but it was drying much wetter clothes. I waited a long time to replace my old machines because of concerns about mold and reliability but I can see now I'm going to save a lot of water and electricity with this new set.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Clothes don't get clean

I was so disappointed with this machine. I have always bought Whirlpool products and was always happy with their performance. My former front load washer was wonderful for almost 14 years! This new washer cannot add enough water to clean the clothes properly and it is so concerned about water usage that it des not rinse the clothes properly so your clothes come out smelling like dirty water. It has a very difficult time balancing for spin cycle. The entire cycle can last for hours because of this problem, and you will have to wash the same load 2-3 times to get them clean. I am not new to washing clothes (40+ years) so I have tried every possible solution....this machine is going back to Whirlpool, I am rating it an F

Better than the previous version

I bought this machine with apprehension as I was replacing a just-off-warranty earlier model of the Whirlpool Duet which was one problem after another and finally died. After doing a lot of research that pointed to this newer model as a great choice, I reluctantly purchased another Whirlpool. Despite all the problems with the original machine I did like how it operated when it worked. This new machine is much quieter and is doing a fine job meeting my needs.

So far, so good. Love the large capacity, can do lots of towels and bedding.

This is my first experience with a front loader. Have had washer about 2 months now. Love the ability to wash lots of towels and large quilts. My college student daughter always brings home lots of laundry and it handles it great! Many choices for temp, speed, and spin cycles,etc. Also, has a "clean washer" cycle. I am still concerned about mold build up but I am leaving door open and running "clean washer" cycle with Affesh every month per Whirlpool's suggestion. So far, so good...
