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 like it a lot! But the sound bar stopped working after 1 week. Whirlpool took care of it quickly. Now I just need to find a matching gas dryer!

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.

Good washer but quality and reliability issues.

By DS

from Grayson, GA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 4.3 CuFt Front Load Washer:

When this washer works it has excellent performance. However, after less than five years we experienced a catastrophic failure of the machine that is not covered by the warranty. Frankly, given the cost of this model we expected a higher quality level. Our previous washer was also a Whirlpool front loader that lasted eight years before total failure. Prior to that we had a whirlpool top loader that was still working after 20 years of heavy use. The top loader costs a fraction of what we paid for the newer models. Obviously, the top loaders are more sophisticated products with multiple features, advanced electronics and more powerful motors. However, considering the purchase price combined with the repair bills over the lifespan of the washer, the older, simpler top loaders are a significantly better deal. I would recommend someone considering a front loader check out alternative brands that have a reputation for superior quality.

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.
