Whirlpool Duet Sport Washer Woes
Very disappointing, very poorly designed. Spins violently and "walks", service has been there 3 times and they say it is "supposed to spin like that....", pedestal is far too lightweight, I had to load the bottom drawer with cinderblocks and can only spin it on low or it vibrates the drain hose out and walks across the room. Water puddles up in the rubber seals inside the door & it must be cleaned inside the rubber seals thoroughtly by hand with disenfectant or the water gets stagnant and smelly, need to leave the door open after use to dry it out to prevent mildew. Also the detergent dispenser stays full of water after each load. Clothes (especially sheets) come out unbelievably twisted. Yes, it uses less water, but that's because it only holds half as much as the top loader did..... clothes come out very wet on the low spin which makes the dryer work harder (unless weather permits hanging clothes outside). Matching dryer is a whole different set of problems. Very unhappy with them, my former old Whirlpool washer lasted me 20+ years, sure wish I had spent the money to repair it rather than buy the front loader. I'll get rid of it as soon as I can afford another, surely not another Whirlpool, I contacted them previously but they did nothing, neither will the store where I purchased it.
