Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
Hi. The whirlpool duet series would be a great choice. This unit cleans very well and the cycle times are sufficient. It has its draw backs as does all the other units in this particular class. It is not a perfect unit in any way. The components are very reliable, if used correctly and not abused. The number one issue with this unit will be the detergent standards. The HE brand powder or liquid detergents are the only formula that can be inserted into the dispenser. This is very important when concerning this class of unit. If you run a non HE detergent in this machine, you will clog up the dispenser and drain age assembly,thus, producing a heavy SUD condition. This will shutdown the unit and clog the hoses at the dispenser and drain pump assemblies. This over SUD issue will cause an over draw on the pump motor,thus, ruining the motor and possibly shorting the CCU(Central control unit). To prevent this common disaster, simply, use the HE detergent formula at all times and do not over fill the dispenser. If you can remember that, then, it will last for a very longtime. I would recommend the liquid HE formula over the powder, due to the fact that, it will dissolve quicker and wash out well. The last warning when using this type of washing unit will be to NEVER overload the drum and always clean the drain filter, periodically. The fill capacity will be located in your user manual when you make the purchase. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the capacity level of the unit. NEVER overfill past the satisfactions, If you do overfill, those actions will damage the motor and motor controller, thus, costing you hundreds of dollars in service calls and replacement parts. You can prevent that by simply staying within the specifications of the load requirements..
In conclusion; This is a great unit, but it can fail just like the others if you abuse it. Be sure to read the user manual fully and use it with care.
Have a great day:)

buy a toaster, think about what you need it for. Do you have a family? If so,
maybe a four slice would be better than two. What color is your kitchen? Do you
want any accessories on it, like a defrost function?
answers to these questions and it will help you pick a toaster.
