Thoughts on Whirlpool WFW86HEBW washer?

rogerv_gwJuly 26, 2013

I noticed that the Whirlpool WFW88HEAW front load washer came highly recommended by Consumer Reports, and the online reviews are very favorable as well. Not finding that model at our local appliance dealer, I do see the WFW86HEBW there, which is the slightly smaller sibling of the WFW88HEAW, and newer, and slightly less expensive (and less reviewed, as well). One or two less features, which is fine with me, less to go wrong *smile*.

Since these are both members of a family that includes the WFW96HEAW and WFW94HEXW (and the 95 and 97 are also mentioned), wondering if anyone out there has any direct experience with any of these models? I gather that some of these have been out a while, so wondering how they stack up in terms of reliability and performance?

Thanks.

I recently bought the WFW96HEAW and have used it for about 5 washes now. Love them. Clean good, super quiet
