I had been researching for months before deciding on this washer. I was in no rush since my 25 year old washer was still working. But it had started making new noises and I figured it was only going to be a matter of time before it gives up the ghost. I can tell you so far that I have been happy with this new washer. I was a little worried about the new HE washers in general after reading and hearing different complaints. But I can say I have not experienced the issues a lot of people may go on about. The washer cleaned my white and colored clothes very well. Keep in mind that you will need to read the manual and follow the directions. You just canâ€™t toss the clothes in it any old way. It has a very large capacity, but donâ€™t over load it. No washer will wash well over loaded. The wash cycles may be a little longer than the older washers. However the timer shows the estimated time left until it is finished. Yes, there are some cycle settings with selected options that may take an hour or so. You must use HE type detergents for this washer. However make sure to use the amounts the HE detergent recommends for a load. Plus this washer will make different sounds compared to the older washers. But I didnâ€™t find it loud in my opinion. And last if you are coming from the old school washer, you must select the options if you use the bleach and/or fabric softener dispenser(s). For an endnote, I have not experienced any major tangling or major wrinkling. But I must note that I often use a medium or low spin speed since I read it helps control wrinkling issues. Plus you may want to use the extra rinse option depending on the brand of detergent you use. A sensitive nose may pick up a low detergent scent depending on the brand you use. But the extra rinse option seems to take care of that if it is an issue for you. Overall, I am very happy with this washer.

I have been using this machine for 6 months, and I am disappointed with it's performance. The only thing that is high efficient about this washer is the amount of water, or lack thereof, that it uses. The cycles on this machine have a running time that are 2 to 3 times longer than a standard washer, so the machine definately uses more electricity. Out of 16 cycles available, I am only using 1 (the Bulky Items cycle) because the water level in this cycle is enough to allow the laundry to move freely without twisting into a mess. It took me several minutes to untwist a king size flat sheet so it could be put into the dryer. The machine is beautiful to look at and has every feature you could wish for except the ability to set the water level you desire. If Whirlpool would design/manufacture a component to install on this washer to allow water level adjustment then, for me, this would be a 5 Star appliance without a doubt.

Wonderful washer I just love it! You do need to use it properly though to get good results. As it does not have a tall agitator, it washes completely different from the old type washers. My husbands white sock always had a grimy look even after washed with my old washer, but with this one, I put it on the white soak cycle with bleach, then wash them with an extra rinse, and they come out snowy white! I was amazed. The only problem that I have is that being short, I have some difficulty getting the clothes out of the huge tub!

Love, love, love our new Cabrio washer! There is a feature for every laundry challenge. The sleek lines make this appliance look great in our remodeled laundry room.
Great looking piece!

Purchased 3 months ago and am extremely happy with the product. On a fixed income so the price was what drew me to purchase this machine. And have no regrets!

I was a little concerned about the new no large center section but liked the idea of the lower water usage. It is the absolute best washing machine that I've ever owned (this is my sixth). It is quiet and cleans great. It's just a little tall for a lot of women. I'm 5' 6" and have to stretch to reach the inside bottom of the machine. I've washed everything from small scatter rugs to a king size bedspread with awesome results. Love, love the platinum color. I would definitely buy this again. Needless to say it's a Whirlpool which was my #1 reason for purchasing it.

I love Whirlpool products and I would not buy any other brand.
Happy with the washer, but there are some issues.
from Norwalk, CA, United States
I like the fact that the washer conserves water but with some of the cycles, the water level is way too low. I just stay away from those cycles unless I have a very light load. Also, it becomes unbalanced quite a bit. Overall, it does its job.
