It's their own design.. This is part of the redesign almost 3 years ago and this was included in that series that's serious.

Whirlpools website is atrocious. I love how under the quick wash section, its showing a dishwasher rack. The spin speed label is in french, plus its showing a full size combo washer dryer as only needing 1100watts. Is this a heat pump or are the specs wrong?

And the manual is useless too. No information about the wash programmes or a picture of the control panel.

Unit has been out for a while now (2020?) to mixed reviews. Some owners swear by their machine, others swear at it. *LOL*

Condenser drying seems to be standard old school, not a heat pump.

Those things

take hours to do a load, and 8 lbs. isn't much. An old belt drive Knmore model 70 holds 12.

Condenser dryers will always take longer than vented. Piled on you have fact this unit runs on 120v power which limits how much juice it can pull for heating.

Then you have fact condenser dryers are far more affected by surrounding ambient room temperatures than vented. Anyone using this unit for drying when things are warm or even hot will likely find drying times long to extremely so.

Had WP gone with a heat pump dryer even with running on 120v power things might be slightly better time results wise. Even so still not fast as vented dryer.

Whirlpool full sized combo

The biggest problem with this machine is it needs a more powerful heater even if they require just a 20 amp 120 V circuit it would’ve worked a lot better but it should’ve gotten up to about 3000 W and required 240 V circuit.

This machine has a water condenser combo so it Not affected by room temperature, it may be somewhat affected by the cold water temperature available to it however.

The guy that did the presentation on this machine at the show in Florida it’s a complete idiot, I about choked when he said the number one reason front load washers mold is too much detergent, have you ever noticed how a box of open detergent molds and gets smelly, lol that’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.

The good news is because it has a detergent dispensing system it may actually may use enough detergent to actually do the job and it won’t get as moldy.

I have to second that IDK what’s going on at Whirlpool Corporate.
The past few years, it really feels like WP had laid off a bunch of people. Don’t put effort in their website or documentation anymore.

You can go from one website to the next and get different Energy Star ratings for the same machine. Would be hard to trust their info right now.
