I bought a Whirlpool Duet in 2007.  It lasted three years.  Mold penetrated the rubber door gasket and it rippled, even though I cleaned it with bleach regularly and kept the door open whenever a load was finished.  Our laundry room is on second floor.  I started seeing what I thought were water spots in kitchen ceiling, but they never seemed to get larger so I wasn't sure what they were.  Had plumbers out to do $1,000 worth of plumbing repair/replacement in bathroom we thought had leaking tub.  One day I happened to watch the washer as it was going through the clean cycle.  There was a small jet of water spurting out of the door, far enough to miss the washer tray!  It didn't leak during regular cycle, just during clean cycle - which is why the water stains in ceiling below never seemed to get larger as the clean cycle was not regularly used.  I immediately got rid of the machine as even though I did not have the huge smell problem as many do (there are many class action lawsuits pending over mold problems for front load machines) I nevertheless could tell the inside had an odor.  Got an LG top load HE washer from Sears.  Check out my evaluation for that machine now that I have had it for 14 months.

Don't buy front load.

I had this machine five months and clothes are torn while in machine.  Leaking water on the floor.
