Bought this to replace a 5 year old Maytag which turned out to be a lemon. Used for general laundry duties for my family of three.Good stuff: It's quiet and does an outstanding job cleaning and spinning dry. Uses less electricity, soap and water. A major improvement over my 5 year old washer which needed constant repairs. It makes different sounds than a standard washer, you get use to them quickly, though.Not so good: Deep tub, so the vertically challenged may have difficulty reaching the bottom. Also, the customer-installed sound padding provided was poorly marked for the correct placement into the machine.

Washer is AWFUL!

So this washer is awful. I really liked the fact that it had no agitator but whenever I have a few towels or pairs of jeans the washer won't spin right. It keeps running through the sensing process and finally gives up, leaving the clothes drenched. You can even squeeze a stream of water out of the clothes. Then the Cabrio dryer we bought with the washer won't dry the clothes if they are that wet. I miss my old washer!

Not a fan....yet!

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW5500XW White Top Loading Washer:
I bought this washer a little over a month ago and while I am pleased with the look of the washer and the fact that it doesn't have an agitator, I am not completely sold on it yet. I don't think that my clothes are getting super clean in the first wash, and so I am usually doing a second wash to get them clean. I have just recently started washing everything on heavy soil (whether they are or not)so that I can make sure that they are getting clean on the first try. Not sure how that is impacting the efficiency, but the clothes seem a bit cleaner.

Efficient and quiet
I bought this washer about 3 months ago. I am very satisfied with how it cleans my clothes and how relatively quiet it is.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Little noiser than anticipated

Purchased the set for husband and I...who never have a full load and was surprised to have the grinding sound
from Okmulgee, OK, United States
I purchased this machine because of the features and the price. I found that I really enjoy this machine and the cleanliness that it provides. Things I don't particularly like but can live with are that it has a lid lock and sometimes I may find an additional item I want to throw in and can't due to this feature, or if the load gets unbalanced, I cannot fix the load without completely stopping the machine and restarting the load. But the lid lock feature, though I don't know WHY that is needed on a machine, is a feature I don't care for but can live with. Other than that, I enjoy my new machine and would recommend it to others!!
Prefer old fashion washer
from Jackson, MS
I am not crazy about the high efficiency washers. My old one wore out and there wasn't much to choose from. This one is probably one of the better HE washers. At first some of my clothes did not seem to get clean. Someone suggested that I always select bulky and extra rinse.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought mine 1 month ago & have recommended it to 3 friends

Long cycles, noisy, wrinkled clothes that aren't that clean. Can't rinse the detergent cup that you used add the detergent so you end up with messing detergent bottles and a floor. When the machine spins out on high spin, you think something is wrong with the machine because it shakes so bad. On the positive side, found the controls to be easy to use and the options for washing good. Wouldn't recommend for a larger family or a situation when large amounts of laundry has to be done.
So far, so good...
My old washer (with agitator) broke and I bought this to replace it. Just wanted something simple. It is, and it's fine. I read reviews before purchasing it about clothes not getting as clean without the agitator, etc.. I can see why people would write that, as we're all used to clothes being nice and wet after a wash. So far, though, they seem clean to me....
Whirlpool 3.6 top load washer
from Robertsdale, AL, United States
I am very pleased with this purchase, it has saved me so much money in laundry detergent and softner.
from Philipsburg, PA, United States
I have had this washer for a little over two years. I love the way it loads and uses little water. It has plenty of settings for your most delecate of clothing to you large blankets and comforters. The one hing that disappoints me about the washer is that you have to make sure to keep it clean or it will cause problems. Over all I am very pleased with it. I have the matching dryer and it is amazing.
