  • I like my Whirlpool Duet Washer Model GHW9100LW

    Feb 7, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Washes clothes better less water, energy, cleaners, wash almost anything any size
    Cons: Price ; technology so new that retail distributors are often clueless about it.

    Summary: This is my first front-loading washer. I have the 9100 (without a heater, and not blue plastic in front, mine is beige). We bought it last fall at our Lowes, on sale $799, and also bought 5 additional years of warranty service, something I never usually ... read more

    Pros: Clothes do get cleaned 
    Can wash larger items such as comforters.
    Cons: Repairs are numerous.
    Company does not stand behind their product.  

    Summary: We purchased the Whirllpool duet 3.8 washer in July of 2005.  In April of 2006, the outer tub and spin basket had to be replaced. In May 2006 (a month later), the new tub had a bearing that went bad.  They replaced the outer tub and spin basket ... read more

    DOES SAVE A LOT OF WATER
    Cons: NOISY, HIGHSPIN VIBRATION;
    HANDLE BREAKS EASILY;
    OWNERS MANUAL DOESN'T MENTION ACCESSIBLE FILTER;MECHANICAL/COMPUTER PROBLEM

    Pros:  Whites which were dingy from the top loader became whiter with each wash. 
    Cons: Leaked from the door seal and vibrated violently

    Summary: Have not felt compelled to post a review previously.  I bought a set of Duet Sports from Costco.  Great deal, came with pedestals and delivery.  The front door seal on the washer would leak for no apparent reason.  Worked fine for a ... read more

    Pros: You need a "pro" for service..on a constant basis!
    Cons: Poor repair service, poor warranty work, Poor customer service, CONSTANT maintenance problems and upkeep

    Summary: I've worked for whirlpool for 14 years and I can say without doubt the ghw has had more problems with repairs due to computer integration, poor design, mis-informing customers, over-rating and showboating to sell a product. Why is leveling so ... read more

    Pros: Nothing I can think of considering the extremely negative experience I had.
    Cons: Terrible service if anything goes wrong! Good luck getting any satisfaction.

    Summary: Received the brand new Duet washer and dryer when I purchased the house. The washer and dryer always shook at high spin cycles, so I could not do laundry at night or when my kids were sleeping. Less than 6 months after owning it the washer stopped, ... read more

    Pros: Great job of washing the clothes. Spins so well, it shortens drying time.
    Cons: Front-loading design must have bellows, which gets holes and must be replaced. Mildew.

    Summary: I would never buy another "front-loading" washer period. Prior to buying my Duet, I owned a MAYTAG "top-loading" heavy duty washer, and had NO problems for 20 years with no problems and no "maintenance". I have had my Whirlpool Duet for about three ... read more

    Pros: It's so energy efficient! Kind of like me spraying soapy water on my clothes.
    Cons: The benefits do not outweigh the costs!

    Summary: OK, maybe this one was a lemon, but there must be a lot of them out there! I have often thought that I would rather throw this machine down my steps than wash another load of laundry in it. When I buy my new machine (which is this week; 2 years of ... read more

    Summary: We have owned the Whirlpool washer model # GHW9100LW1 and the dryer model #CEW9200LW0 for just over two years and to say that I am disappointed is just the tip of the iceberg. This set does not live up to the sales pitch that you are lead to believe, you ... read more
