No machine for a week and still another service call to install the part.

I do my own repairs, and just the repair parts, purchased online, have cost more than the machine.

My duet sport washing machine is less than 3 years old, and has been nothing but trouble.

I love my Whirlpool Duet Sport WFW8300SW (3.4 capacity) Front Loading washer and I'd recommend it to everyone I know. After several major brands turned into duds, Whirlpool and Kenmore are the only brands I trust for major appliances.

Features I love:

I don't have to guess the amount of water to use for the size of my load. This machine has an auto water level that adjusts to the size of the load. Since there is no agitator, my washer has increased in capacity. I can put more clothes in ...... up to 10 pairs of jeans! This model will let me add a garment during the 1st 7 minutes of a cycle before the door remains locked. I can choose from 3 spin speeds, 3 water temps, and I can add an extra rinse. The 7 preset cycles seem good enough to me but I'm happy I can make adjustments if needed. I love the quietness of this washer. I actually enjoy the sound of the gentle tumbling in and out of the water. My laundry feels softer and smells better despite that I'm using just 1/3 the recommended amount of fabric softener. An added bonus is that I will get a $100 rebate from my water company for buying this water-saving machine. I wish I could justify buying the matching dryer but my old dryer runs perfectly. Maybe in the future............

Some things to consider if you're torn between top loading and front loading washers:

Top Load Washer Advantages:

They're cheaper.

Wash cycles are shorter.

You don't have to bend down to get your clothes out of the washer.

You can add an article of clothing at any time.

Top Load Disadvantages:

They use a lot of water, more energy to operate, and are hard on your clothes. The agitator is a brutal device that basically "beats" your clothes while drowning them.

I purchased my matching washer and dryer at sears and have this exact model. First I have to say this was not my first choice as I tend to want to purchase the "cadillac" of every home appliance. However financially I had to be slightly more modest with my selection. I am amazed with this machine and pleasantly suprised!!

-It is EXTREMELY QUIET and the loudest part is at the end when it is spinning out the water, it kind of sounds like a quietly-muffled jet engine..lol

-On the very first wash I did my CLOTHES CAME OUT 3 TIMES BRIGHTER than my last regular top loader.

-Oh!! And it BARELY USES WATER....It turns to the right then the left coating the clothes with the detergent water until it saturates them completely. Then it begins the washing process where it turns several times to the right and then to the left all the while it basically beats the clothes against the drum as it turns..Kind of reminds me of the old times when people would wash their clothes in the creek and beat them against the rocks. :) It is such a simple concept and yet it tooks so long to get here!

-The other thing I like is the detergent compartment...it has 3 places to put your detergent, bleach and softener and then you walk away, no going back to add the softener.

-Another thing I noticed is that when the spinning process is complete the drum turns a few more times to the right and left to loosen the clothes from the sides...they come out of the washer fluffed and easy to keep wrinkle-free.

I haven't found anything yet that I don't like about this washer....I am a hard person to please and I am tickled pink with this! :)

Don't buy a Duet Sport washing machine ... We bought the washer (and dryer) two years ago. The washer has performed ok (haven't had the mold problems) but that may be because we've had to replace the gasket three times now. The front load door seals with the washer via a rubber gasket mounted on the washing machine itself. This gasket has now torn three times in the two year period. When it tears, the door can no longer seal and water RUNS out the front (about a gallon per load-fun stuff). We thought it was tearing when pulling clothes after a cycle as clothes will almost always touch it when you pull them out (unless you reach way in, lift and pull the clothes our perfectly--similar to the childhood board game Operation). Today it tore during a cycle ... each time it tears, we've had to spend about $130 to get it repaired (parts + labor) so we're now almost up to the original cost of the unit.

Save your money on this one and look for a unit without a rubber gasket between the door and the machine. I've seen some that use a wire mesh type seal which would seem to be indestructible.

I need to qualify my comments by indicating that we purchased the unit from Lowe's (Model # WFW8300SW) JUST a couple weeks ago... but so far, so good. Got 10% off so it was around $720 before tax and extended warranty. Unexpectedly had to replace my 12-year old top-loading Maytag. But maybe for the best considering its capacity. Previously clothes would pile up in a hurry with our 6-person household; resulting in mildewed/moldy clothes (read RUINED) and an overwhelmed stay-at-home wife/mom. Now we (OK, my wife) can pound out 2-3 loads a day and stay up to speed with the dirty laundry we produce daily.

PROS:

--Anticipated Durability (Consumer Reports indicates Whirlpool has lowest repair-rate for front-loaders.

--Quiet.

--Super clean (and pretty dry) clothes.

--SGreen: supposedly consumes way less water and electricity than top-loaders (too little experience to say for sure).

CONS:

--Hecho en Mexico. Is anything made in the States anymore?? (at least it's closer than China). A lot of Americans out of work/make less money so that Whirlpool can make more $$$. Such is life I guess. Jumping off my soapbox now.

--Out-of-the-box warranty is short-lived... but that's common now among washers (refer to Consumer Reports for more on this).
