Saving Energy, Time & Money With Whirlpool Duet Washer/Dryer #WhirlpoolMoms


Before my new Duet Washer & Dryer pair arrived, I felt overloaded with laundry. With a family of six, it seemed like the laundry was a never ending mountain of stinky, dirty clothes. I tried my best to stay on top of things… a load in the washer each morning, but it always seemed to win the battle. I thought I’d never see the bottom of the laundry hamper.


I am happy to say that the clothes are no longer winning the battle. No… I didn’t get rid of or sell a child. There is the same amount of laundry that has always been here, but now my means of cleaning our families clothes is more efficient! I am actually spending less time doing the same amount of laundry!

How is it possible to be spending less time doing laundry when the amount of laundry hasn’t changed? The Whirlpool Duet set works in tandem to help save me time, energy and money. The washing machine boasts higher spin speeds to extract more water before the clothes even get to the dryer. The dryer has built in sensors that help determine the exact amount of time needed to dry the clothes… then it turns off (and alerts me with a pleasant chime that it is finished).

Saving time is fabulous! How on earth does it get any better? Well… the Duet washer uses as little as 11.5 gallons of water per load which exceeds the minimum federal standard for energy selling requirements by more than 160% on average. The energy cost savings is estimated at as much as $3,300 in lifetime energy costs and for every household that uses the new Whirlpool Duet laundry pair, 12,857 gallons of water could be saved every year!

Better yet, the Duet pair also comes equipped with an EcoBoost option. This cycle on the washer takes the guesswork out of efficiency by reducing the water temperature and increasing the length of agitation so the decrease in temperature is offset. By increasing the agitation and decreasing the water temperature, you receive the same results while using less energy.

time-and-moneyThe large 7.4 cubic foot dryer lets your dry more at once meaning your laundry is done faster and more efficiently. The mountain that was once my family’s dirty clothes is finally under control. I can do a load up to every other day because of the large amount of clothing each tub will hold. I’m only filling the washer once, it spins quicker to extract more water leaving the clothes close to dry when being removed and the dryer turns off when the clothes are dry with the help of a dryer sensor.

One of the biggest money savers our family has noticed is the precision dispense ultra on the washing machine. It seems like my family was using too much detergent before our new Duets! Now we fill the dispenser once every (approximately) 36 loads and the machine dispenses just the right amount of detergent to clean that particular load. Because the Duet cleans better and uses less detergent, it saves nearly 10% in HE detergent costs. By adding detergent throughout the length of the fill time, Precision Dispense Ultra delivers better results than adding detergent manually. The system also releases bleach and fabric softener at the right time during the cycle for optimal fabric care.

It’s finally been done… a washer & dryer that not only washes your clothes, but it saves you time, energy and money. Thank you Whirlpool!

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.

    Wow you lucky thing! I love Whirlpool! They are awesome and your review makes them sound even more appealing. I know I had to go and check them out and of course let my hubby know by hinting strongly that I want these for Christmas. lol

  2. Johnette Kuhn says:

    I love my Whirlpool front loaders.

  3. Leona Evans says:

    I really need a new washer and dryer. I feel like my washer doesn’t work hard enough to get my clothes clean, IF that makes sense. And, we have to run the dryer cycle at least twice per load. I just can NOT afford one. 🙁

  4. Linda Sanders says:

    Would definitely make my laundry easier. They sound great.

    I absolutely LOVE my duet steam set! Not only does it save drying time, I love the steam setting on the dryer. Now, instead of taking a new pair of pants to the cleaners to get the fold creases out, I just pop them in the dryer with a couple other pieces that just need refreshing & voila! the pants look like they came back from the cleaners.

    I love my front-loader washer and dryer. But I do wish they were the Duet. 🙂

    This is on my wishlist and has been for a while. They sound like they would make everything much easier.
