The Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer have been a favorite appliance of many families for several years, yet it was recently reported that a substantial number of claims have been filed each year by families who were not aware that there was a lawsuit clause built into the appliance. The appliances were designed to provide safe, effective cleaning in a variety of settings. There are particular disadvantages, however, that will be pointed out below and an appliance user should be aware of them. Once a problem is identified, a consumer may be able to obtain compensation for damages from their original manufacturers as well.
As with other modern appliances, it is difficult to ascertain whether or not a Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer will indeed work safely and effectively. Most manufacturers advise against using the washing machine and dryer in high traffic areas such as those that commonly see home remodeling and maintenance projects. These warning signs will usually be located in the manual or operating manuals. In addition, the duet manufacturer may place a safety cutout in the machine to prevent accidental trips and falls. However, it must be noted that while the cutout is an important safety feature, in many instances it is not sufficient to prevent serious injury or even death.
A customer may also experience trouble with their Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer. Some users report experiencing the machine kicking into gear too hard, resulting in excess water being sprayed everywhere. This may be caused by worn out air filters or even dirty air filters. In addition, the dryer can sometimes be hard to turn on because of a clogged power outlet. In either case, the customer may need to contact the manufacturer to have the issue repaired.
Another issue that has been noted with these types of appliances relates to the quality of water that is generated. Many users note that there is a strong taste associated with the water coming from these machines. While this does have an effect on some people, it is important to note that there is a fix for this problem. In most cases, users are able to simply exchange the filter, change the water, and get their Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer back in working order.
Finally, it should be noted that in many cases the Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer can become clogged with dirt and debris. In most cases, users are able to clear away the blockage by using a standard cleaning tool. It should be noted that while cleaning tools can help, they should be used in accordance with the cleaning requirements of the particular appliance. In other words, it is important that users avoid using a stiff brush on the exterior walls of the machine. In addition, it is also important to avoid using the washer in an over-filled sink or bathtub. When water levels drop, the machine can become difficult to clean and drain.
