Whirlpool Duet Sport WFW8400T disappointing

Pros Easy to use.  Cleans well when it works like it should.

Recommended it? No

We bought the Whirlpool Duet Sport on Oct 4, 2010.  It worked fine until (interestingly enough) mid-January when it started making a loud banging noise which also rocked the machine across the laundry room floor.  Since it was just barely 90 days after purchase, there is reluctance to...

Pros This unit cleans the cloths well and uses little water.  
Cons Vibrates<br>Soap dispensing unit malfunctions
Recommended it? No

We purchased our WFW8400 from Nebraska Furniture Mart last Febrary and have had on going problems.   The machine vibrates and walks out of its spot if we use any other spin cycle but low (defeats the purpose of being able to spin the clothes dry to reduce drying time and cost), we also had an F31...

Recommended it? No

We purchased this Whirlpool washer about 7 months ago in May 2008.  The one we have is WFW8400TW02 (white, bought in Canada).  It washes about 4 loads of average weight/size per week (not heavy use).

At 3 months a problem manifested.  The machine started squeaking during drum revolution... Read full review »

Pros Quiet, cleans wonderfully, energy and water efficient
Cons Baby socks and other very small items must be put in a lingerie bag
Recommended it? Yes

My two boys are mud magnets. I used to have a GE top loader. I thought it was fine - until I got this Whirlpool. This washing machine is absolutely amazing!!! What makes it so fantastic? First of all, there is a wide range of settings - everything from a hand wash cycle for delicate items that I... Read full review »


The Walking Whirlpool

Pros Put your kid on top of the wildly vibrating washer and watch the ensuing hilarity!
Cons If an earthquake occurs during the washer operation, you won't be aware of it.
Recommended it? No

We purchased the Whirlpool Duet 8400TW with the companion dryer a week ago. We have a major vibration problem with the washer. It literally moves itself four inches forward each time we do a load. The installation team from Nebraska Furniture Mart returned to try to correct the problem, but to no... Read full review »


Sensational washing machine

bysfbruce Apr 27, 2008
10 Helpfuls 11 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Whiter whites, less water usage, shorter drying times
Cons None
Recommended it? Yes

We replaced an aging stacking unit with this washing machine and matching dryer. It has performed exactly as promised. We have found that our clothes are cleaner and the drying time is greatly reduced due to the fact that the high speed spin cycle removes most of the water from the clothes. We only...

It fell apart with normal use after two weeks.

byelectricwind Apr 24, 2008
12 Helpfuls 13 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros It ran quietly and smoothly, with the minimum of water and detergent.
Cons Cycles require 10-20 min. longer than the top loader we had.
Recommended it? No

There are two adults in the household using this model with normal loads of laundry -- we probably used it for maybe 8 or 9 small-to-normal-sized loads on the Normal setting with the recommend amount of HE soap. It was such an improvement over what we had, we were thrilled and relieved that it... Read full review »


So far, so good

Pros Features, price, size, looks, control lock feature
Cons Vibration when speeding up and slowing down.
Recommended it? Yes

It's only been about one day, but we're happy with it so far. The installation was easy, the manual clear and easy to understand. The washing operation is silent, except for when it's going to go into spin, then some vibration that stops when it's up to speed (and it's FAST). We have it on a... Read full review »


I don't recommend

Pros it washes clothes
Cons It does not do well with heavy items like a blanket or heavy sweater.
Recommended it? No

I have had a Kenmore washer and dryer for 25 years with no problems. I purchased this washer because I wanted a larger capacity washer. First you have to use special detergent, which I have not seen go on sale in the year that I have had the product. So I am not saving money on detergent. The cycle... Read full review »
