Any opinions on Whirlpool Duet GHW9150PW & GE/GW9250PW???

We are looking into a new Washer/Dryer and saw that the Whirlpool Duet GHW9150PW & GE/GW9250PW were some of the Top Picks on Consumer Reports. Though the Best Buy from Consumer reports was a Kenmore KE2 something. I found some onions on the net that there was some design issues with the KE2 and items would clog the water input causing water to spill out onto the floor.
So I have a few questions, the Whirlpool looks similar to the KE2 series. is the Kenmore KE2 really the Whirlpool Duet in sheep's clothing?
If you have the Whirlpool Duet GHW9150PW & GE/GW9250PW do you like it?
Thanks, Scott<-

Whirlpool does indeed make appliaces for Kenmore. I can't remember what make it is, but I just got a new Kenmore set of front loaders last year. They work great! Personally, I would go for the Kenmore over the Whirlpool, they seems to be a little bit nicer. The main difference on our model was the Whirlpool had a selector knob and the Kenmore had electronic buttons. Hope this helps a little.

I was looking at http://www.epinions.com/Kenmore_3_3_cu_ft_I_E_C_Capacity_HE2_Front_Load_Washer_46462/display_~reviews
And they were reviewing the CR Best Buy (Kenmore 46462 Front Load Washer) and there were 2 of 5 that had issues with theirs which they dumped water all over the floor.
It just looks similar to the Whirlpool Duet... I don't want to have the same issues with it. I'd go Kenmore if they had better user feedback. The next step up of the Kenmore line is the HE3, which is $350 more... Was not interested in spending that much. )-;

Just wait and the HE3 (now that you mention it, that is what I have) will go on sale for $250 off. it happend all the time. If you go in and ask they will probably tell you when it is going on sale next.

that is exactly the set we purchased about 4 months ago. We couldn't be happier. You'll love the water savings and we monitor our electric online in real time and the dryer doesn't make wash day spike like the old one did. We figger a two year pay back in water and electric savings. And the clothes are cleaner also!!

We are having problems with our Whirlpool Duet Dryer with our control lights staying on after we have pressed the cancel button. we have also tried unplugging it and plugging it back in. Does anyone know what may be the problem. Email Me at snipped-for-privacy@acsalska.net

The Duet line of machines are the exact same machine as the HE machines at Sears, except with different styling and different functionality of the controls. Duet machines actually have more trim, so repairs can be slightly more difficult.
I don't know if there is a Duet equivalent to the HE2, but these are the machines that seem to be a bit more problematic. The Duets that are equivalent to HE3 and above are the ones you want.
