I deal with my fair share of stains having a 3 year old and a teenager and I also have to treat the stains on my uniform for college so I am glad that the Whirlpool Duet has a built in brain that tells me how to treat stains if I am not sure. Such as tomato and oil based. They have to be treated differently so its good to know how to treat them. I love that I can go on the panel on my washer and look up what I need to do! I can also choose the soil level to determine what is the best amount of detergent that should be dispensed!
I know it sounds silly that something that washes something else needs to be cleaned but all the soil and particles from your dirty clothes can settle in places and it needs to be cleaned once a month or so. This washer uses Affresh tablets to clean the washer and they work by just putting the tablet on the drum and closing the door, then choosing the setting on the washer. I generally never skip a cleaning because I am most terrified of staining my white chef coats with some rouge piece of something that was lodged in the drum!
I wrote this review while participating in a test-drive campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Whirlpool and received a complimentary Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer to facilitate my review.
