About - Whirlpool Duet Steam WED9750W[W]

The Whirlpool Duet Steam WED9750W[W] is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric dryer models like the Duet Steam WED9750W[W] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Drying performance:
This score combines performance on three types of laundry loads of different sizes and fabric mixes: A 12-lb. load, predominantly cotton, representing a family's large weekly load; an 8-lb. load of cotton/polyester blend clothing; and a 3-lb. load of synthetic delicates, women's pajamas, nightgowns, bras and underwear.

Capacity:
Among the models we tested, drum volume varied from about 6 to 8.0 cu. ft.

Convenience:
For this measurement, we judged controls and ergonomics, such as ease of loading and unloading, servicing the lint filter, whether the door could clear a tall basket, and whether the machine has a raised edge to contain spills.

Comment:
Bought the Model 9750 electric washer dryer suite in Oct 2012. I do 4 to 5 loads a week. Two delicate smaller loads, two bedding loads, and 1 load of towels. After 5 months ran a load just fine, then went to do the next load and wouldn't turn on. Electric was fine, display was on, pushed the start button and heard a click and then nothing. Read on the internet that this is a common problem. This is a lot of money to be having problems like this and doesn't say a lot about our appliances today. I went with Whirlpool instead of LG and Samsung because I was afraid of service and parts availability where I live. Perhaps this was a mistake. You would think by now that they would have fixed this problem. Interesting reading on the internet about Whirlpool products. I am now feeling very insecure about my purchase of both my washer and dryer after reading these reviews.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
