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.

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum White Top Load Washer:
I got this a few weeks ago. It leaked the first day! So I got another one. If I had read the He pod directions, I would have know to not put them into the detergent dispense ! Suffice it to say, read the directions!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Washed about 10 assorted loads and I find it easy to use and works great.
Can hardly hear it run. It is amazingly quiet.

I can get twice the clothing, especially towels and sheets in it as I could our front load. I love all the options. Only other option I would like would be an override in the water level. Some of the loads don't get enough water in them to cover all the items
overall absolutely amazing!

I bought this washer along with the dryer in Dec 2014! I'm in love with both of them. I don't think they could have made these anymore better! There are many options on the washer and dryer. Like: extra rinse, sanitize etc. Overall great buy!

I have been using this washer for last 2 months and so far am very happy with the decision to purchase this. Less noisy and does great work in removing tough stains. Uses less water and the drum size is very large. Happy so far !!

I purchase this washer about 3 weeks ago now so I have had a chance to use it. I like this machine very much. I'm glad I purchased it. It seems to me that my clothes are cleaner. It's large capacity drum wholes a lot of clothes. It's quite and uses very little water.
Washing Machine leaves owner speechless!

I recently purchased this washing machine in December and I have to say I am absolutely in love with it! I actually fell in love with it from the moment I laid eyes on it in the store due in large part to the awesome color of this machine...gun metal gray! But once I actually walked over to the machine and started reading each button that it had boy was I impressed. I told my husband this was a machine that was loaded with features and that I wanted it. Needless to say my husband was willing to agree with whichever machine I decided I wanted(he didn't care as long as his clothes get washed...lol. After getting it home I cannot tell you how happy I am with this machine. I love all the features it has and my favorites are the water sensor which automatically puts the amount of water needed for each load, the sanitize feature which lets me sanitize and clean the machine whenever I need to and generally just the overall size of the tub inside the machine. It holds such big loads of laundry unlike my old washer that I am still trying to wrap my head around the fact that it is so roomy. I could go on and on about this machine but I think you have realized that I am totally and completely 100% satisfied and in love with my gun metal gray beast! Thanks Whirlpool for making such an awesome washing machine!

I have thoroughly enjoyed my washer and excited that I can wash my queen size comfort in it instead of having to take it to the cleaners!!
Very happy with this washing machine!
We bought this machine recently and so far it is great. I love that it uses less water and still cleans the clothes well. My only note is that the cycle is definitely longer than traditional washing machines, so you need to allow for extra time, which doesn't bother me but may affect others. Overall very happy with this purchase.
