    We had a 20 year old top load washer that filled completely up with water. So when we got the new Whirlpool High Efficiency top loader it took a few loads to see how the new technology works. The LED Basket Light feature (only on the Cabrio 8800 series) is so cool because you can leave it on during the cycle and watch everything. I must admit that at first I was skeptical, but after watching 5 or 6 loads I am now confident that the new machine does a very good job and gets all our clothes clean. Since the HE machines use less water the clothes have to remain in contact with the agitator plate in order for the machine to work right. If the basket filled completely with water items would float up and no agitation would take place. The machine senses how much water is needed and I find that the water level is always about 3/4 of the way to the top of the items in the basket. The Whirlpool Cabrio is pretty quiet, and makes different noises. Low volume sounds like gurgling, splashing, and whirling. There is also very little vibration and the machine remained stable even when I washed our king sized comforter. I am using liquid HE detergent and it dissolves well and leaves the clothes smelling fresh. Have also tried Oxi and fabric softener. The Whites cycle with Oxi worked really well on a large load or whites. Also the faster spin cycle does a great job of wringing out all the water. At the end of the cycle items are fairly dry. After 10 loads we have never found any soap residue on clothes. Best suggestion I can make is read your operators manual because they have lots of tips in there. For example, if your clothes are getting twisted up try reducing the soil level to help eliminate that problem. The lower the soil level the less agitation takes place. The biggest complaint we have is wish we had gone with white instead of the chrome shadow color because although it looks sleek the chrome shows dust & finger prints really bad.

    I have read the booklet, and can't seem to fine tune it. I put the oxi-clean powder in the slot as it says, and sometimes the oxi-clean is still in the compartment and it's solid. Also, i have asked a salesman about something and I can't seem to get an answer on. I don't like the harshness of using clorox, in my other machine I was able to use use half a cup of peroxide for whites and it does not say anything in the book except for bleach. No one can answer my question if it's safe to use in this machine, don't want to damage any parts. Also, my clothes seem to be more wrinkled than my old top load washer. My friend has a front loader and her clothes are less wrinkled. Would love to hear back from someone to answer these questions Joanne

    dryer is the worst I have ever owned. I am 62

    By dennismag

    from new jersey

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum Chrome Shadow Gas Dryer:

    I have had the outside vent changed 3 times in 17 months since it collects so much lint the dryer fails. We clean the vent screen every time we use it. The exhaust vent run is 4' ft. This is the worst dryer I have ever owned.

    Bought this a couple months ago, for a second set in my laundry room. I have an older whirlpool model dryer and side by side comparison. The new one seems to dry faster.

    This is my second purchase of the cabrio. First dryer was electric. When we moved I wanted the same since I liked the first set so much. Gave my old set to my parents and they love it. Going strong.

        Very happy with this dryer. I especially love that I can throw wrinkled items in for a "quick refresh" or the longer enhanced option. Saves a lot of ironing for things that I hang to dry.

              Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum Chrome Shadow Gas Dryer:

              The machine is expensive. The tub holds a lot, but if you don't push the clothes to the edges it sometimes stops mid-cycle and makes a lot of noise. I thought it was totally busted, but now it's working again. It tries to conserve water, I don't think it does as good of a job as those that don't conserve water. Why not put a plastic column in the middle to force clothes to the sides? I paid extra for the titanium look, not one person has even mentioned the look of the machines. Probably wasted money. If you want this machine, just get the plain white.

              Works well and good looking

              By Luckydon

              from Oregon

              Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum Chrome Shadow Gas Dryer:

              My only issue so far is that the exhaust pipe on the dryer is three inches higher than my previous dryer so there is a sharp angle to the home exhaust pipe. No problem with the function so far. The units work well so I am satisfied with my purchase. My only com paint is that the chrome on the doors is hard to keep clean so they must be wiped down every time I use the machines. Not much of an issue.
