Whirlpool
Elevate fabric care and virtually eliminate pretreating. This Whirlpool WFW96HEAW front load washer features Precision Dispense, which takes the guess work out of adding detergent, bleach and other additives by releasing them at the correct time during the cycle for optimal fabric care. Detergent mixes with water to penetrate fabrics and virtually eliminate pretreating. Plus, with the 12-Hour FanFresh option with Dynamic Venting Technology selected, you can tumble clothes for up to 12 hours after the cycle ends, so you can wash and dry a small load right in the washer. Cut down on the amount of laundry you do each week, with a 4.3 CuFt capacity, you can wash up to 20 pairs of jeans in a single load.

I will never buy another whirlpool applicance

By Ana

from Miami

Comments about Whirlpool 4.3 CuFt Front Load Washer:

I will never buy another whirlpool appliance for the rest of my life. This machine has had issues after just a few months of owning it. After the year was up I renewed the extended warranty for a price and this machine has had problems repeatedly every year it was under warranty, which I paid for. I did not renew this years warranty because I was resolute that I would just throw this thing in the trash where it belongs if it did anything else this year. Which is did, the same error code it had the first time it had its like brain repaired F08E06. The best thing is that they finally took this off the market. Whirlpool has the worst customer service, I've had LG come out personally to repair my refrigerator that gave problems shortly after the year it was bought!

FRONT LOADER 4.3 DUET

By KG

from FAYETTEVILLE, OH

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 4.3 CuFt Front Load Washer:

I love the capacity of the large loads but they don't smell like they should. there is mold growing above the soap dispenser and no way to get to it. The tube that goes to the drum comes disconnected spaying water all over the floor and the control boards. What a fire hazard.

Love this washer

By MELMORETON

from Houston, TX

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 4.3 CuFt Front Load Washer:

I love this washer. My last front load washer I had to always leave the door opened and always had a musty smell. This one does not have that problem at all. No musty smell, no moldy gasket. It cleans my clothes so well. The only thing that I didn't like was the depth of this unit. It took up more space than my top loaders I used to have.

Good washer, except

By Regina

from Lancaster pa

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 4.3 CuFt Front Load Washer:

Good washer, except it will not wash my 22 x 60 bath rugs. It is too heavy to spin. Surprisingly, the duet washer I bought in 2003 through 2016 was able to wash and spin out that Same size and type rug. I called whirlpool and they told me to flip the rug over in the wash but that did not help. Nor the other things they suggested. I had to throw out all my rugs. I had the same thing happen with a load of pants and it was not a very large load . Otherwise it is a good washer and I like the delay feature.

Bad odors and costly repairs

By william

from chicago

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 4.3 CuFt Front Load Washer:

i bought this washer with a dryer and began to experience terrible mildew odors on anything that was washed. I was advised to leave the door ajar all the time and that did seem to help. the washer always had a funky bad smell in the water that was discharged. Jump forward 5 years and now the computer that controls the washer broke and the cost estimate to replace it was $450 and then may not even fix the problem. I also discovered that you cannot do anything manual such as spin dry some wet towels..so i guess i am not thrilled with this washer.
