This system naturally steams out stains eliminating the need to pretreat stains, and sanitizes towels and sheets without bleach. Hoever, if wanted there is also a three-tray dispenser system that includes bleach, as well as detergent and fabric softener. There are 10 factory pre-set cycles and options including cycles for delicate items, whitest whites, and heavy duty, to name a few. The Ultra Capacity Plus stainless steel wash basket handled much larger loads than typical front loading machines, and is able to handle items such as rugs and comforters. Sixth sense technology determines the size of the load being washed and automatically determines how much water is required, monitors and controls the water temperature with the built-in water heater and keeps an eye on the suds level to prevent oversudsing. The direct inject wash system penetrates stains with a concentrated burst of detergent further eliminating the need to pretreat stains. The add-a-garment feature indicates how long new items can be added to the cycle without affecting the wash quality. Quiet wash plus noise reduction uses sound absorbing materials in front, sides and bottom of the cabinet helping to keep washer sounds from disturbing your daily life. The variable-speed motor spins at a maximum 1,000 RPM and uses a 6-point suspension system to reduce vibration and noise while in operation. Other features include door lock, child lockout, audio feedback, instructional control and optional storage pedestals. The matching dryers are the WED9500TC/TW electrical dryer and WGD9500TC/TW gas dryer. The WFW9500TC comes in a "Tuscan Chestnut" finish, and is available in "Silver Metallic-on-White" as the WFW9500TW, with dryer colours to match.

Steam option does an excellent job of removing tough stains.
Sanitize function is great for freshening up clothes that have been sitting in the washer too long.
Sleek visual aesthetic with a unique Tuscan Chestnut colour option.
Tends to be too tough on clothing--noticeable fraying may occur on the cuffs of jeans.
Gets a bit moldy around the door seal if you don't keep the door open after a wash.
