Interior Features

  • The 4-Tray Prewash, Detergent, Bleach, Fabric Softener dispenser is as good as any dispenser can be. Imagine dealing with these laundry implements without having to do those messy steps like measuring and pouring. No more messy and bleach-smelling fingers and no need for gloves.
  • The wash basket , made of stainless steel, does not cause odors, rust, or paint chips to get into clothes. The smooth finish gently holds fabrics and durable enough to function for years. The fact that it can handle 4 cubic feet of laundry is not bad too, at all.

    Exterior Features

  • It comes with a white finish and sapphire blue accents, making the machine look interesting and not just one of those usual boring-looking washers.
  • The door window has a see-though area that lets you see through the inside of the washer, even when it is working. Additional features, including child lockout and door lock, prohibits accidents from ever happening - you can leave it to wash your clothes without having
    to worry about something bad happening with children around.
  • Push buttons are placed neatly and an LCD screen is present to inform you of the status of the wash cycle. The overall layout of the control panel is very user-friendly.

    Everything is working fine - going on 3 years
    by: Anonymous

    I read the last review, and wonder if maybe they are making washers and dryers like Detroit used to make cars. Don't buy one made on Monday or Friday. I replaced a GE washer and dryer set almost 3 years ago with the WFW9400 Duet set. I run it an average of 6 to 8 times a week and I've never had a lick of trouble. My electric bill dropped by 10% and they are quiet and take care of my clothes.

    Broken !$ month old washer
    by: Ed Aagesen

    I have a 14 month old Whirlpool Modell 9400 washer. The main bearing decided to go out and since it is out of warranry it is going to cost what I paid for the washer to replace. Needless to say I am shopping for another brand. I also have 14 mo old model 9400 dryer. The drum has been replaced 3 times and the rollers once and it still thumps when running. Of course Whirlpool said that now that it is out of warranty, too bad. Needless to say Whirlpool is not the brand I am going to buy now.
