Convenient and cost effective
This washer costs $34.91 to run over the course of a year, which is fairly average. We are neither impressed nor particularly upset over this number, but users can lower it by using the Whites cycle sparingly, which adds an extra rinse to wash out bleach, thereby increasing the annual cost.
Probably be Whirlpool's biggest seller of higher end washers
This machine isn't as efficient as some other washers in its price range. It sits on the high side with its $38.98 yearly operating cost. This number is derived from the Whirlpool Duet WFW94HEA's high water and electricity usage Anyone buying this washer will have to consider the long term costs. This is especially true if your water costs are above the national average.
Slow, poor rinse performance
I've had this machine about nine months. It replaced an old Frigidaire front-loader that worked fine, but was 10 years old and starting to leak from the tub.
The washer has extremely long cycle times. It takes about 90 minutes to do a load of whites and 72 minutes for a regular load. If I had known, I'd not have bought the machine.
Also, it has frustratingly poor rinse performance.
Very good cleaning performance
With an annual cost to operate of around $38, the Whirlpool Duet WFW9151YW is inefficient compared to other front loading machines we've tested. If you're replacing an older washer or a top loader, though, you'll still notice a dip in your electric bill.
Noisy, tinny and leaves clothes surprisingly wet
We probably wouldn't have picked this model but it came included with our new Centex home. We have been using it for a month now. It replaced our 10yr old Whirpool HE Calypso model which was much quieter. We are amazed at how noisy this machine is. It seems to do an acceptable job cleaning, but it takes a long time to do a load of wash and the locking lid is a REAL pain in the you-know-what.
Spectacularly Bad Washing Machine, Laughably Bad Customer Support
Whirlpool has created a monster with the WFC7500VW but refuses to acknowledge its shortcomings. The washer is glitchy and temperamental. It requires an extremely detailed series of steps performed in a specific order (as well as a hope and a prayer) before it will do a load of washing. It constantly throws error codes and then seems to fix itself with no intervention, leaving me with a half-washed load of soaking wet clothes. My machine died when it was three years old.
Breakdowns of various types frequently reported
The Whirlpool WFC7500VW is the most compact, and affordable front load washing machine offered by Whirlpool. The overall size of this machine is 23.5" x 33.5" x 24" (W x H x D) making this a great space saver, taking up as little floor space as possible.
However, it's internal 2.3 cu. ft. I.E.C. capacity provides plenty of room for your laundry. It can be installed under a countertop, freestanding or stacked with the matching dryer.
No frills top-loader
The Whirlpool WTW4800XQ is another model that skims along around the $450 price range. 3.4 cu. ft. of capacity, 8 cycles, and 4 temperature settings outline this no frills top-loader. Excellent user reviews accompany this model, and paint it as a well-built option for those looking to save a few dollars. A quiet spin technology does a little to dampen sound.
Product is bad - customer service is worse
Brand new product showed up and stopped working within a month - wouldn't even power on.
Local whirlpool tech showed up - assessed the problem as a faulty electric board from the manufacturer.
Whirlpool would not cover all the costs to fix the problem - specifically removing the Whirlpool dryer from the top of the washer in order for the technician to access the electronics that needed replacing. (this was after waiting on hold for 30-60 minutes)
Clothes are a wrinkled mess
I decided to try this washing machine despite reading mixed reviews about it. I thought maybe some people who had problems made loads too large or mixed different weight materials in the same load. I am meticulous about sorting and pre treating clothing. When using the Cabrio washing machine, the clothing came out a wrinkled mess. I would have to iron every item of clothing before they would be wearable.
Worst Washing Machine Ever...If you can even call it a "washing"
This washing machine was the biggest waste of money. It does not provide enough water to even completely cover the clothes. My nice black slacks come out of this washer covered in white soap spots...I use the HE detergent as directed. Those same black slacks came out with the hem ripped twice. The Cabrio wraps clothes around and twists them very tightly. I supposed if you bought a brand new pair of jeans and wanted the "destroyed" look then this washer is for you.
