44,000 Grain Capacity

Ideal for a family size of 1-5+, comes with a space-saving single tank design.

High Hardness Removal

Removes a maximum of 140 gpg of hardness.

Salt Saving, 6th Sense™ Technology

Only Whirlpool® water softeners employ 6th Sense™ Technology for regeneration. The result is a significant savings in salt and water usage. Competitive models typically use a ‘fixed’ amount of salt to regenerate its media tank regardless of how much water has passed through the system. Whirlpool’s® 6th Sense™ Technology automatically calculates how much salt is required to clean its media bed and uses only what is necessary.

Uses Up to 25% Less Salt and Water*

Water softeners need to regenerate to continue to soften water. With Demand Initiated Regeneration, the Whirlpool® WHES44 unit monitors your water usage and only regenerates when necessary, which minimizes your water and salt usage. Older timer-based models regenerate on a set cycle regardless of how much water you’ve used; this can result in unnecessary water and salt consumption.

*Over previous Whirlpool® models.

Operating Light

This is an indicator light that will inform you that your softener is working efficiently. The light will flash to indicate that you are low on salt, not out. This will allow you a few days to refill the salt tank.

Super High Flow Valve

Designed for worry-free plumbing flow characteristics. Delivers maximum water flow even when multiple water-using devices (showers, appliances, etc.) are being used the same time. Connects to plumbing up to 1 1/4” in diameter (1 1/4” plumbing requires special adaptors for installation).

Do-It-Yourself Installation Kit

Softeners come with detailed instructions and everything you need to install the unit, including a bypass valve.

Iron Removal Setting

This setting will trigger an additional backwash cycle to rid itself and your water supply of excess non-ferrous (clear water) iron.

Water Flow Indicator

Display indicates when water is flowing through the system. The water flow indicator could also show a potential leak in your home’s plumbing.

Lighted Salt Storage Tank

Light inside tank allows you to view the salt level inside the tank.

2 Year Full Parts and Labor Warranty*

2 year warranty with the use of the Whirlpool™ Water Softener Cleanser Model WHEC-WSC. The standard warranty on this unit is: - 1 year full parts and labor - 3 years on the electronics - 10 years on the tanks. (see Warranty for details)
