CNET First Look
A washer tailor-made for lazy laundry daysWhirlpool's WFW92HEFU washer will tumble your clothes for up to 12 hours so you don't have to move them to the dryer right away.
[MUSIC] I wasn't immediately impressed with this Whirlpool front-load washing machine when I first looked at it. It's fairly basic looking. The dials are kinda standard. There's really nothing new, modern or fresh about it like what we've seen with some other models. And it's performance was just so so. It did okay with stain removal. It did okay with wear and tear But it didn't do great and didn't do terrible. So I was feeling like it was kind of middle of the road and a little bit boring. But then when you take a look at it's features, it offers a little bit more than your standard $1,340 washing machine. So, For starters it has a load and go feature. Basically it's an insert that goes inside the detergent reservoir, and it can hold up to 12 loads of detergent for a typical 8-pound load. So it's not a huge load, but also not a small load. It's basically the standard size for a typical household in the United States. And it also has a FanFresh feature. This is my favorite. So my husband and I are always forgetting to take stuff out of the washer and put it into the dryer. But with FanFresh, it will actually fan and circulate your clothes around for up to 12 hours if you forget that step. So it will keep them fresh, or at least a little more fresh, so you don't have to wash them all over again. Yeah. So, if those features sound pretty good to you, I would definitely take a look at this washer although do keep in mind that it doesn't do anything new in terms in design and it doesn't have great performance.
