The Whirlpool Duet Steam WFW97HEXL is a mid-cost front load washer. Efficiency is a focus of this Energy Star qualified washer, and its CEE Tier 3 rating helps to ensure that energy and water will not be wasted. This five cubic foot capacity washer is equipped with 6th Sense technology. This technology measures the size of the load and determines how much water is needed to clean it. Sensors monitor the inlet temperature, gradually warming water to keep cleaning enzymes at optimal effectiveness. The FanFresh option with Dynamic Venting Technology keeps your clean clothes fresh for up to sixteen hours after they have been washed, in case you cannot finish the complete laundry process all at once. The Whirlpool Duet Steam WFW97HEXL is equipped with a variety of specialty fabric care cycles, and the LCD display allows you easy access to them.
