(More customer reviews)I owned several Whirlpool washers in the past. All 3 ended with machine breaking down, leaking, door not closing. Ironically, they all happened shortly after the 1 year warranty expires. It was almost as if Whirlpool quality engineers designed the system to fail after 1 year, so they could sell newer machines.
This unit was no different. It started leaking exactly 2 days after 1 year anniversary. Water leaked from the front door, which also happened to my previous Whirlpool front loader washer. Calling Maytag (number on Whirlpool production manual, so I assume Maytag bought Whirlpool) on the weekend will get you a generic "office is closed" message. Wait time to get a technician visit is about 4 weeks. It would take another month or two for them to order repair parts. If the repair did not fix the problem, you just spent $400+ with a still broken machine.
Search for "Whirlpool Duet Door Leak" on Google, and read some of the other customers experience. Then make your decision if you want to buy a Whirlpool washer.
I am willing to give LG a try on the next washer purchase.
