The Whirlpool Duet Sport WFW8300SW is a lower model front loading washing machine which fits at the bottom of the Duet Sport product line. The ultra capacity stainless steel was basket can handle 10 pairs of jeans in a single load, while its front load design and automatic water level control conserves water and energy making it Energy Star qualified. There are 7 factory pre-set wash cycles and options, including a cycle for  quick wash, delicates and whitest whites to name a few, and also features a three-tray dispenser which releases detergent, bleach and fabric softener at appropriate times in the cycle. An innovative suspension system reduces vibration during operation, in which the wash basket reaches a maximum spin speed of 1,050 RPM. The quiet wash technology uses a sound-absorbing pad on the front of the cabinet helping reduce operational noise. Other features include child lockout and optional storage pedestals, laundry tower and worksurface. The WFW8300SW is available in a "white with gray accents" finish. The matching dryers for this washer are the electric WED8300SB/SE/SW or gas WGD8300SB/SE/SW duet sports dryers, which come in the matching "white with gray accents", as well as in "Ocean Blue" and "Black-on-Black". There is an optional stacking kit which allows a stackable installation of the washer and dryer.

I bought both duets and have been up and running excelllent since the first day I got them, if I remember well, it was around 2006. Will highly recomend to anyone. Btw, if the washer leaks, level it!

This machine is horrible, I know 3 people who purchased the same model and all have broken down. I argued with whirpool after the warrenty period and they agreed to repalce it. This one broke down again after 2 years. The tech look at the machine and indicated this model is plagued with problems.

after about 150 washes the main rollerbearing for tub is shot and hard to get part plus very expensive to change almost 80% of original cost, probably the best is to throw away and buy another brand

28 months later and the bearing is shot !!! Too costly for repair. This is my 2nd Duet in less than 5 years. They seem to avg. 30 months before breaking down. Too costly for repairs and than needing to buy a new one. DO NOT BUY!!!!

This machine is not worth buying had it six months and it started to get really loud. Had to buy a $300 dollar part to fix it. It worked again properly for another 5 months and then had the same problem. DO NOT BUY!!

Had less than one month and started leaking under the door. Replacing with a new one and have yet to see how it measures up. Long wash time for regular loads.
