Upgrade Your Life with the Whirlpool Duet Washer/Dryer

whirlpool laundry washing Upgrade Your Life with the Whirlpool Duet Washer/Dryer
The key component to our laundry room makeover was of course the appliances. Our previous units were at least 10-15 years old and still worked! But they lacked all of the energy and water saving features that modern washers and dryers have. We also knew that with a new baby in the home we’d be doing a lot more laundry and different types of laundry so we needed more bells and whistles from our washer/dryer.
When shopping for these units the colorful Samsung and Electrolux really caught our eye but when it came down to overall features and reliability we went with the Whirlpool Duet models. Specifically the 4.3 Cu. ft. front loading washer and the 7.4 Cu. ft. gas dryer.

We’ve never had front-loading appliances but we wanted to make the best of our space so stacking was the best option. We did have to change the door swing out direction on the dryer to match the washer but it was very straightforward and only required a phillips screwdriver.

Once these units arrived the Lowe’s crew helped us install them and even shared a trick of the trade, spray Windex on the floor to help you slide them easily across the floor. This will save your back and the floors.
Among the features of these units that really made sense to us on the dryer were the steaming capabilities and quick dry. It also pays to make sure you know how to use the proper settings as this will ensure you are saving energy and getting your clothes to turn out just as you like them.

The washer is also very energy efficient and only uses the exact amount of water you need by “sensing” each load. It’s also got a helpful wash now/dry later feature that allows you to wash clothes but then come back a few hours later to dry. It will keep refreshing the load so it doesn’t just sit in the washer wet.
We’ve been using the Whirlpools for a couple months now and maybe it’s just in our heads but our clothes are definitely feeling fresh and don’t get as wrinkled. The washer only uses HE detergent which is important because it results in both energy and water conservation. HE washers use 20% to 66% less water than a traditional agitator washer, and because there’s less water to heat, HE washers use 50% to 80% less energy. Due to their low water wash and rinse cycles, HE washers work best with an HE detergent that is low-sudsing and easily rinsed away.
We always recommend any appliance or technology that makes life easier and the Duet washer and dryer from Whirlpool definitely upgrades your life. You can check out these units at any Lowe’s store where they will have knowledgeable staff to help you make your decision.

    Great article. When it is time to get your roof repaired there are many factors to consider. Some of the factors include your location, type of roofing material, weather hazards your roof is subject to, and how much you want to spend. Our biggest piece of advice when you are looking to replace your roof is to get multiple quotes and meet with multiple roofing companies about your upcoming project. Best of luck!

    It is good idea that you check your roofing regularly. But since most of us have daily activities, we won’t be able to check it all the time. Maybe there’s a certain day or month when you can check your roofing. It is always good that you allot a certain time to check your roofing ,so you can fix any damages right away.

    This is a very informative article. Some owners don’t realize that
    the roof is part of their investment, and it should be given equal interest as
    the lawn, the walls, and the rest of the house. More often than not, this part
    of the house is only given attention once problems have already occurred.
    Regular inspection is essential to maintain its sound condition.

    This is quite risky repairing the roof like this. First you need to take precautions before fixing it. You should call a specialist to fix it. It would better if you check it regularly so that you save your roof from a big damage.

    The most common problem we
    encounter with our roofs is leaks. Roof leak can cause the roof sheathing to
    rot and possibly destroy the ceiling. So it is best to fix the leak
    immediately. After repairing the damaged area, try to inspect it again by
    running water down on it. That’s the best way to make sure that the leak has
    been fixed and sealed.
