Washing Machine Whirlpool WTW5700XW0We are very satisfied with this washing machine and highly recommend it.My review is rather long, even though I try to be concise and to the point.When we had to purchase a new washing machine after our last one began to fade after 14 years (and it was already used), we consulted a leading consumer evaluation service. Our final choice was among the top loading 'high efficiency' machines recommended.These new high efficiency machines differ substantially from the older machines. The sounds they make, the cycles they go through, the amount of water they use, are all very different from the older washing machines.We chose this high efficiency model for these reasons:1) it was highly recommended by the consumer evaluation service2) it is rated Cier 33) it has a glass topThe competitor (for us) cost another $100 for a glass top and was cier 2 (a lower rating). That clinched it for us to get the Whirlpool rather than the (xxx). I really wanted to get the xxx because that brand has served my family well for more then sixty years, and it was the brand of the machine we were replacing. But to pay $100 more to get a lesser efficiency rated machine just for the glass top? -- well, not this time.We were at first disconcerted with the noises but especially the low amount of water the Whirlpool uses. Never mind the different noises, we wondered how our clothes could possibly be cleaned with a level of water that never rose above the top of the clothes! Let me mention here that we are very happy with the glass top, which permits us to see the washer in action. Without the glass top, I would be constantly stopping, looking, and restarting, without seeing what is actually transpiring.Through the glass top we could see that the clothes are moved rigorously through the solution of water and detergent; so the manufacturer's statement that detergent is efficiently delivered makes sense.We rarely use a dryer unless it rains unceasingly for days and days; we hang out clothes to dry on a clothesline. After three months with our new washing machine I state unequivocally that whether dried on the clothesline or in the dryer, our clothes are at least as clean and fresh as before, and to my mind, better.I have wondered why reviews are all over the map: some claim the product is the best ever and others the worst ever. Sometimes complaints are handled well, sometimes not. Those that are not handled well lead to justifiably bad reviews.So how does one consider the bad reviews that are complaints not about a defective product, but rather about the product itself?I think -- and this is just my personal opinion -- that most complaints arise from not understanding how this very different machine works. If I look at the water level, for instance, and think this can never ever get my clothes clean, well then it may be that no matter how clean my clothes actually are I won't believe they are clean.As for the rest (I think a minor remainder), I have no explanation or speculative explanation. I would say, 'Give it a real chance. If that doesn't do it for you, seek recourse: get a replacement, another model, or go back'. I would rather not have anyone go back, because the water savings are significant.

I have to say I am very disappointed with my new washer. It doesn't clean well and I have to run loads 2 and 3 times to get them clean. I love the Whirlpool dryer and have never had any complaints about a Whirlpool washer until now. I have to literally set ever load on the HIGHEST and LONGEST setting and hope they are semi clean when finished.My husband works construction and I have pets so I am washing blankets, sheets, sofa covers and dirty construction clothes and this washer really - really does NOT clean them well. I hope it dies soon so I can justify buying a new one. :(

Mediocre at best
from Garson, Manitoba, Canada
Comments about Whirlpool White Top Loading Washer:
This machine is very noisey during its wash cycles. We had a non high efficient top loader before and it was more quiet during its wash cycles.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A lot a problem with this machine, 1st went you wash dark color clothes leave a soap marks I have to re-washer, the machines locks you have to wait into the machine stop working to check the clothing, 2, it don't start right away, I have to run the ball clock wise 5 time them unplug, plugged back them is star working happens every time I try to use it, 3 do not take enough soap or fabric conditioner on the soap drawers that is the reason the clothing come out dirty, Don't like this product at all
Nice At First, Not So Much Later!
from Brooklyn, NY
At first the Cabrio is a nice machine. I've owned it less than 4 years and have had it serviced 2 possibly 3 times. Bearings have broken, lid will lock, water wouldn't drain, all of the above. After only 3 years there is horrible rusting under the lid. The rust just gets worse and worse. Powder coating shouldn't wear off after 3 years, and you definitely don't want rust on your clothing, towels, bedding, etc. It is best to use the clean washer feature, because for sure, towels and clothing begin to hold on to funky odors. Not all stains come out and the HE feature is meant to save on water, however, if the clothes don't come clean and you have to rewash, it defeats the efficiency factor. I gave Whirlpool Cabrio a shot, it's time to give up after 4 years. I strongly recommend to others reviewing Consumer Reports testing and ratings. I am therefore moving on to a Samsung Washer.

lasted 5 years and 3 months
By Ben the homeowner
from Green Lane PA
This washer worked OK although I don't think it cleans as well as a washer with a large agitator, however...it just died at the ripe old age of 5 years and 3 months. You decide if this is a good value.

I BOUGHT THIS ITEM 2 WEEKS AGO. I AM VERY SATIFIED WITH FEATURES.

Low water and clean clothes!
By G G
from Mendon, Utah
I needed a low water machine, but was thinking I would have to give up white whites! My clothes are clean and about half the time!
leaves a bit to be desired.
from New Jersey
Overall have been less than impressed with the overall performance. Clothes do not come as clean as you would expect.
I have had this washer for about amonth! I love being able to wash what I need and it fits because there is no agitator. So far so good! Just need the dryer to match. The Whirlpool washer is energy Efficiant which I love saves money!
Bought ours in Feb 2012. So far, so good. Had one service call when it was new. Sometimes dark colored clothes wind up with a detergent mark on them. Have to rewash. Usually only happens with one heavy dark blue shirt.Don't expect it to last nearly as long as my last machine (20+ years)but OK so far. Not going to pay $300 + for a service call when something breaks. I'll just buy a new machine
