I had an older washer and dryer and the washer was leaving orange stains on my clothes and the dryer was taking forever to dry clothes so we figured it was time to get a new pair. We decided on the Whirlpool Duet front loaders. I also bought the pedestals that go under each and have a storage drawer. The drawer is where I keep all my fabric softeners and stain fighting products.Both the washer and dryer and high efficiency so I am using less water and electric which helps cut down my utility bills. The salesperson told me that I would be able to fit a lot more clothes then my old washer but when I came home and tried it I was amazed with how much bigger loads I can do. Both the washer and dryer both show you how much time you have left in each cycle.
The washer has five different cycles which include whitest whites, heavy duty, normal/casual and also delicates and hand washables. It also has the option to delay washing and for extra rinse. It has four different spin speed and three different settings for the end of cycle settings. I use this option a lot when my kids are sleeping and I am doing laundry I put it on silent so the kids never hear it beep.
The dryer has five different cycles which include heavy duty, normal, bulky, casual and delicates. The dryer has a heat sensor in it so when my clothes are dry it will automatically shut the dryer off for me. It also has a wrinkle shield option and five different temperatures.
I used to have hang dry all my daughters' clothes because I am always afraid about things shrinking. I was using my old dryers air dry cycle but it would take me 7 to 8 times through to get the stuff dry. It would take me forever to do the laundry then I would have to put it in the dryer for a few minutes to fluff it. Now I put them all in the dryer on air dry and they are done in no time. I absolutely love this washer and dryer it is the best thing I have bought in a very long time and would definitely recommend it.
