I love my new washer! It has no agitator in the way, get clothes very clean, and quite dry (from the spin). The only drawbacks are that I wish it were faster, and a bit quieter (It's not THAT loud, but it's louder than I expected it to be for a new HE model.)

The Whirlpool Cabrio, Model WTW5600XW worked fine for several months, then started giving a lot of "out of balance" errors. Adjusting the loads would help sometimes, but not always. The machine was leveled and balanced, on a concrete floor, so there were no excuses. Had the shift actuator fail twice, the machine got to be very noisy in the low and high spin modes, and finally the gear box and related seals and bearings wore so badly that the water came gushing out of the bottom of it. It was a decent washer in the beginning, but the durability just isn't there after a few years go by. Hope everyone else has batter luck with theirs than I had with mine Excuse me now, as I have to throw this thing into the dumpster.

Very disappointed with this Model
By L Chang
from Cherry Hill, NJ, United States
I bought this about 4 and half years in 2010. The light indicator for cold water vanished after one year of use. Different kinds of noises are getting louder and louder. The washer stops at the cycles of rinse and spin. Now, I have to operate it manually. This is a piece of junk comparing to the "Kenmore" I had, which last almost 12 years.
Happier with old washer
I have had this washer since 2010. I have soap left on clothes. Doesn't look like got completely wet at times. I also have to use extra rinse all the time. Whites are getting terribly dingy. My load of whites (socks, undies) yesterday had to be re-washed as I swished them and clearly the water was still dirty and I used chlorexll. I am completely dissolutioned with this product. I love the dryer.
Doesnt rinse soap well & now not working
from Clifton, NJ, United States
My first issue was that I'd wash colors and they'd come out with soap stains on them, needing to be rinsed again. Now the lid lock starts flashing whenever the spin cycle begins, and the washer stops running. Time to throw some $$$ out the window.

We have had this series for just over 4 years and the lid keeps breaking even after careful use. Pretty expensive to repair too.

We bought this model a few years ago. While we were stationed at a different base. The clothing does not get as clean as our other washer. We did buy the set. Now this washer will not sense the clothing or keep the lid locked. It had a burnt rubber smell after a small load of white clothing. Next time I will just buy a different brand with better consumer reviews.

I don't regret buying this product, it washes good, it's so quiet sometimes i forget am washing.
Horrible washing maching
from Monroe, Wa
Does not put enough water in the tub to wash anything. Makes grinding sounds. Can't wait to get rid of this junk
not a fan
Doing more loads than ever, to clean the same amount of laundry, does not seem energy efficient to me. Jeans have to go in small separate "Bulky" loads in order to come out clean, because if I don't, they come out matted with lint and dirt. Loading anything becomes a balancing act to keep things from falling on the center thingy. And it needs a special detergent that's hard to find and more expensive than my favorite brand which worked perfectly well in my old agitator machine. I'm sorry I got seduced by the energy-saving claims I'm probably using more water, definitely doing more loads, and getting exasperated every time I do the laundry.
