It's bigger. It's stronger. Heck, it's even sexier. Whirlpool's prized Duet washer is back and better than ever, ready to resume its dominance in the laundry room. The all-new WFW94HEXL features a 5.0 cubic foot stainless steel wash basket. That's big enough to wash king-size comforters with room to spare! All that space leads to fewer loads, and consequently to "laundry day" becoming "laundry morning". Plus, stainless steel drums are better for your clothes since they get smoother the more you use them. Additionally, the top spin speed is now a full 1400 revolutions per minute. Spinning you clothes that fast in that large of a drum can lead to some serious savings on your monthly utilities, but more on that later. In addition to pumping up its size and speed, the new Duet washer looks pretty, well, pretty. The tapered curves of this machine give it a distinguished appearance sure to make an impression in any modern laundry space. This washer flat-out leads the pack.
A balancing act
A few quick calculations and we can figure out that at top speed, a sock on the outside edge of the drum in this washer is spinning around at about 180 miles per hour. And with such a large drum, it wouldn't be too terribly tough for a load of laundry that wasn't quite full to be a little off-balance with more jeans on one side and more tee shirts on the other, for example. Now if you paid much attention in physics class, you'll realize that an off-balance washer drum spinning at such a quick speed could be a recipe for disaster. Images of washers bouncing up and down, falling over, or simply making a terrible ruckus might flood through your head. Well, relax. Take a deep breath. These worst-case scenarios are nothing but nightmares when it comes to the WFW95HEX. It's equipped with the best suspension in the business. While the top competitors use only one balance ring for the drum, this beast uses two, one at the front and one at the back. Thanks to the incredible balance system of this Duet washer, even the most skewed loads of laundry will spin problem-free without so much as an extra "clunk".
One advantage to owning your own laundry machines is the freedom to choose your schedule, even if that means starting a load of frillies at one in the morning. But what happens if you forget to turn the end-of-cycle signal loud enough to rise from your slumber when it's time to move them to the dryer? The problem is that your clothes are sitting idly in a warm, moist environment, which, unfortunately enough, is exactly the sort of environment nasty little microscopic pests thrive in. With most washers, this would mean that while you enjoyed your few extra winks, bacteria or fungi may have moved in, bringing with them some less-than-savory smells. So what now? If you have an advanced washer like the WFW95HEXL, you can use the Drum Clean cyle with Affresh to start, ensuring that any undesirable microbes don't find their way into the next load of clothes you run. Then, you can run the clothes through again on a sanitize cycle. Of course, if you have the WFW95HEX, chances are your clothes are just fine when you get up in the morning. It's got a FanFresh option which circulates air and spins the drum intermittently for up to 10 hours, so your clothes don't have a chance to start growing cultures. Instead, when you get around to getting them out of the washer, you'll find them fresh, great-smelling, and even drier than at the end of the cycle. FanFresh really is wonderfully convenient. Although, if you'd rather, a delay start allows you set your load of laundry to start up to 12 hours later, so you could set the cycle to start an hour before you get home. That way, your clothes are ready to be put in the dryer as soon as you walk through the door. Ahh, technology.
Made right here at home
You'll be happy to know that this washer (and its matching dryer) are both made right here at home in U.S. of A. Putting Americans to work building quality products is something everyone can be happy about, especially in this economy.
All at your fingertips
One flaw with a lot of washers these days is the usability, or lack thereof, of the controls. Fortunately, that's not something you'll have to worry about with the WFW95HEX. It uses a dial to select your cycle, then features plenty of buttons for your options. The blue LED display makes it easy to see which options you've selected and what point in the cycle your clothes are, including an estimated time remaining display. If you're the sort of person who likes to be "in control", this washer just might be your new best friend.
Product seems to work well and the price was reasonable for a high end appliance. The allergen button to kill germs after someone is ill is a tremendous addition! The cycles do seem to run a long while compared to other products I have used.
My Whirlpool Machine needed to be replaced after 25 yrs of use. I am Really, really pleased with the washer. Havent had ANY issues. Clothes wash excellent and the spin cycle rids of all the excess water so my dryer doesnt have to work as long. I look forward to 25 more years of use with this machine. Mari C.
