The Whirlpool WFW9470WL is an Energy Star & CEE Tier III Qualified washer featuring a 4.5 Cu Ft stainless steel wash basket that can wash up to 18 pairs of jeans in a single load. As a direct upgrade from the WFW9250WL, it offers a larger load capacity, a faster spin cycle, and a longer delay start. Like its predecessor, the WFW9470WL uses shock absorbers, springs and electronic controls to redistribute the load automatically, which in turn minimizes drum movement for reduced noise and vibration. Included also is an advanced temperature control system that adjusts the water temperature so that the detergent dissolves properly AND the clothes don’t shrink. Critics especially like the Whirlpool WFW9470WL’s ability to clean itself with Affresh washer fluid, thereby preventing soap residue and mildew from piling up inside. Additional features include an LED display, an automatic door lock, and a myriad of versatile wash options.

So far we love the washing machine, but I must say that when it goes into the spin mode, it sounds like a jet engine revving up. Very, very loud. No clanking of banging, and the machine is level. Just a loud roar when it goes into spin mode. I can hear it when I standing outside of the house with the doors and windows closed. Is that normal?
