I have only had a few minor issues with the Whirlpool Duet and I am so excited to say I have discovered the solution to them! In the month and a half that I have had this set, my laundry is honestly more manageable. My clothes don’t smell like mildew anymore and my hampers are staying emptier!
Note, I said emptier. Not empty. I am not superwoman.
The Whirlpool Duet has a ton of specialty cycles and I have only used maybe 1/4 of them. What helps me the most with my laundry is the easy dispense, huge load capacity, and the cute little chimes. The mildew problem was because my old washer did not have an alarm, so I didn’t recognize when it was completed. This meant I left clothes in there far longer than I should have. Now with the cute little ding ding ding DINGS of the alarm I can switch the clothes immediately.
My only issue really was the detergent dispenser for powdered detergent. I was having issues with the machine leaving behind 3/4 of the detergent. This happened with the Tide washing machine cleaner too. After troubleshooting with the Whirlpool team we came to the conclusion I need to wash in cool water since I have hard well water. Other Duet owners suggested I put the powdered detergent directly in the drum with my clothes.
Would you like to meet my set? Here is a little video I made where I take you through all the settings and show you inside my drawers! (oh la la!)
I wrote this review while participating in a test-drive campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Whirlpool and received a complimentary Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer to facilitate my review.
