The Whirlpool Duet Washer and Dryer have been in my home for a few months now. I’ve used the Affresh Clean cycle twice now and I’m still very happy with how it works. Today, I wanted to take you all a little deeper into the Specialty cycles. I made a video for all of you to watch but understand that some of you just aren’t into watching videos. So you can read about the specialty cycles down below.
The washer’s easy-‐to-‐fill liquid detergent reservoir can hold up to 36 loads in one fill! I love how it just knows how much soap to use for each cycle and I can run it quite a few times before needing to refill it. I must not be filling it all the way because I’ve never made it 36 loads. I’m only filling it to the line, which must be the halfway mark and not the fill line, because I would say that I get about 15 loads in-between each fill.
The washer senses load conditions and manages the precise release of each additive at the right time during the cycle for optimal fabric care and cleaning. So far the only additive I have used is the laundry detergent. There is also a place for bleach and fabric softener.
Smart temperature control helps reduce shrinking and color bleeding and the washer offers 14 specialty fabric care cycles. One thing I hate is fading, so I love that I can keep my blacks black and my colors bright! I used to always thing that it had nothing to do with the washing machine. I always thought it relied solely on what type of laundry detergent you use. Care control temperature management enabled by 6th Sense technology helps protect your clothes by controlling water amount and temperature.
With so many cycle options you can choose from Hand Wash Cycle, which mimics washing in the sink for care of hand wash only garments, to Deep Clean Steam Option, which penetrates deep into fabric fibers, breaking down and dissolving stains like grass and grease without pretreating. The specialty cycles let you wash kids clothes as if they were dirtier than everything else. Cause you know they are. Also you can wash blankets on a blanket setting and jeans on a jeans setting. Many of the settings you can change the water temperature or how hard the spin cycle runs. There is a my specialty cycle that is completely customizable and saved on the machine for your next run.
