The Whirlpool WFW9050XW is a budget-friendly Energy Star & CEE Tier III Qualified washer featuring a 4.0 Cu Ft stainless steel wash basket that can wash up to 16 pairs of jeans in a single load. The unit lacks many of the advanced functions available in competitor models from higher-level series (An LCD display, versatile wash cycle options, audio feedback, etc), but it host the basic essentials. For instance, included is a 1100rpm spin system that uses on shock absorbers, springs and electronic controls to automatically redistribute the load, thereby minimizing wash drum movement. Also featured is a Care Control Temperature Management system that adjusts the water temperature to ensure detergents dissolve, but clothes don’t shrink. Unfortunately the Whirlpool WFW9050XW is limited to only 3 temperature options and 6 cycles; users needing more advanced options should look elsewhere.

Does the front loader have a filter? My whirlpool is about three years old and it does have a filter on the front. Do the new ones have one?
