        Smart dispense is great, overall perfomance very good and after 1 year very good results on the washer and dryer. Solid improvements over prior Whirlpool front load model owned.

        Excellent machine BUT...

        By Hlm3bs

        Comments about Whirlpool 4.3 CuFt Front Load Washer:

        I love almost everything about this washer, except for the mildew/mold that takes over the dispenser area. I've learned to completely pull out the dispenser and laying it on a towel on top of washer when done, pulling it open was not enough. So far this has helped.

          My wife and I love the features available on this washer. We only wish that the door was easily reversible because of the way we had to arrange our laundry room. A little pricey but still a great washer. Did not receive the energy savings that we expected but still a great unit.

                Words cannot express my delight in owning this Whirlpool washer! I have owned many others in just a few years and have found that the front loaders are really difficult to keep sanitary! This Whirlpool washer has a door that will stay ajar to let the air in and the rubber gasket will dry without getting slimy. I also love the laundry detergent drawer. You can put a larger amount of laundry detergent in it and it will dispense it automatically. Every time I show anyone our new home, I bring them in the laundry room and tell them that the Whirlpool washer is my favorite item in our home! It is the honest truth!

                  this unit seems to work well and is not too hard to learn although written instructions are a bit complex. soap dispensing system is a little tricky for my wife who does most of the laundry.

                    I can't comment on this as a front loader--my first. It does clean clothes well, but takes more time than a top loader. Occasionally, water will leak out the front of the door. This seems to happen when there is an item in there that is water resistant (like a rain jacket). I believe the water sprays on it and bounces off the the front door where it runs out. Otherwise, it has been reliable for 3 months. There are many features to adjust your cleaning specifications. Of course, it looks great.

                        I had a top load whirlpool washer for 20 years, it finally died. But I am not sorry , because my new steam front load is the best washer I have ever had. I have a whirlpool dryer, which is still going strong. yes! its 15 years old still going strong. I don't really have to use it all the time now. with the new steam washer, which almost dry my clothes. But the towels, I have to put in the dryer. I am saving up for the new dryer; the match for my washer. I love it. it is worth all the money in the world.

                          I love the look of this machine and would probably buy it again if given a choice. The features and use are easy to navigate on the touch screen. Overall, I'd recommend it but I wish there were a few changes. First, on medium or high speed spin, this sounds like a jet engine revving up for take-off. It reaches a high pitched whine. It's not "loud" but sure isn't silent like the wash cycles are. I guess it's expected at that speed, but I was surprised. Second: I'm sure it's washing most daily clothes adequately. However, set it stains are a problem. This thing uses hardly any water. The clothes are wet during the cycles- but they soak up nearly every drop. There is no standing water in the bottom of the tub and very little dripping around. I would think the dirt just cant get 'pulled' out of the clothing without water to carry it away. I wish I could give it another gallon to 'swish' around even to make myself feel like it's doing a better job.
