WFW95HEXL washing machine



Washer Highlights


Interior Features

  • Its 11 wash cycles consist of the basics such as Normal, Delicates and Heavy Duty, as well as additional cycles like Whitest Whites, Bulky Items and Quick Wash cycles. The machine’s Clean Washer program cleans and sanitizes the tub with Affresh washer cleaner.

  • The Direct Inject Wash System helps get rid of stain by treating the clothes first before the cycle starts. During extra-care or delicate cycles, hand-washing is simulated by rocking the drum instead of spinning it. Water temperature is adjusted as needed with the washer’s Care Control Temperature Management program.

  • The unit’s Sixth Sense Technology evaluates the size of each load and determines the amount of water needed to clean it. The water level and temperature are both regulated, thus making sure that only the needed amount is used and the efficacy of detergent is maximized.

    Exterior Features

  • The front controls consist of digital buttons and knobs for accessibility. Next to it is a wide LCD display for easy estimated remaining time monitoring.

  • The washing machine unit is stackable, can be used as a built-in appliance, or positioned above the optional pedestal. Maximize space with the drawer pedestal’s large compartment, which can hold laundry accessories like clothespins and hangers.

  • The large, circular door makes it easier to load and unload garments, while the optional Laundry 1-2-3 Worksurface can be utilized as a laundry room countertop. The washer unit and pedestal are both available in Lunar Silver.

    How does this washer compare? »


    Replaced by the WFW96HEAU

    This is an older model than the WFW96HEAU but still has four more hours on the fanfresh option than the WFW96HEAU (which has 12). This being an older model doesn’t have some of the premium features of its replacements, the WFW96HEAU and WFW94HEAC, so we would recommend considering those two models instead of this one.

    Advantages
  • The unit’s Direct Inject Wash System pre-treats clothes before a cycle begins.
  • A steam cycle called the Deep Clean Steam helps lift out stains from heavily-soiled clothes.
  • Odor and rust build-up are prevented with the help of the washer’s stainless steel drum.
  • The Care Control Temperature Management adjusts water temperature to the needed level for dissolving detergents.
  • The Bulky Items cycle washes large items like comforters, pillows and down jackets.
  • With the Energy Star and CEE Tier III Qualifications, this washing machine ensures less energy and water consumption.
  • The unit features silent washing and spinning with the Quiet Wash and Quiet Spin technologies.

    Disadvantages
  • Laundry room improvements are limited because the unit’s door is not reversible.
  • The number of cycles is less compared to other Whirpool washer models.
