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.)

This washer, supposedly being a high efficiency, low water usage model does not perform as well as my 25 year old washer. This washer is loud, never rinses all the soap out of clothing even when using the correct soap and the double rinse cycle. It also damages and wrinkles my clothes substantially faster than a traditional washer. And forget washing and large bulky items such as rugs or comforters or any dog bedding. This washer's unfortunately relies on the drier remove dog hair, lint, left in soap and dirt. I am a very dissatisfied customer.

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW5550XW White Top Loading Washer:
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Excellent job getting our clothes clean. Took some time getting used to not having a center agitator - but finally did - great water saver!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
So easy a child could operate it

This is the second whirlpool washer I've bought in 20 years what quality
This was an expensive piece of junk!

I bought this washer 11/28/2010 and I'm having to replace it 07/25/14. This washer did not clean the clothes at all. I had to wash most of the laundry twice and it still did not do a satisfactory job. So much for "energy efficient" as the manufacturer claimed. The normal wash cycle took almost an hour to complete and the water level was so low some of the garments did not even get wet ! Totally disappointed with this product. Do not waste your time or money on this machine.

I have had the Cabrio for a few months. I really like it, easy to use. Was skeptical at first but it works well.
Fast and efficient

I bought this washer 1 month ago and I think its great. The delivery service was efficient. My dirty wash comes out sparkling.

Best washer drier combo that we have had. Easily washes a full basket of clothes. Has multiple options including a delicate fucntion that works great. Better than a front load
Love the cleaning ability

My laundry is so much cleaner than with my old machine.
from Hazlet, NJ, United States
Have had for about 4 months now and all seems good.the tray for the soap seems a little flimsy/cheap but so far we have had no problems with it.
No large paddle in the centre to take up space.
Excellent washer, overall, uses very little water for small loads. Only gripe is that it can walk around the room if it is off balance, so i don't recommend leaving it if to it's own devices if it is full. In my experience it seems to be the same with all top loaders. Problem is, no matter how you distribute the washing to start with it gets re-distributed them during the run.
