Our very first HE washer and so far, we are not disappointed. I bought this on the recommendation of a good friend who was highly skeptical of HE washers and absolutely loves her Cabrio. After reading negative reviews, I decided to try it anyway. The most commonly repeated criticism is the perception that the washer is not getting clothing clean and is leaving detergent residue. After the second load, which had a couple of Navy blue items, we noticed some lighter markings on the clothes. Hmm, I wasn't sure so gave the clothes an additional rinse. They came out with even more "lighter areas". This is presumably what people interpret as incomplete rinsing. Not at all! The washer does such a good job with the spin cycle that some areas come out much drier than others giving this appearance. Once the clothes were hanging to dry, these marks went away completely with no residue! Perfectly cleaned. The big test will be to see how long we go with no repairs. We'll certainly do our best to take care of this big investment! It's a good-looking beast and didn't take up any more room than the old washer. Can't wait to try blankets, etc. It sounds like it will cost next to nothing energy-wise. Quiet, too.

My mother-in-law and I sat there and watched the entire cycle-there is a nice drum light just for this purpose. This washer is sleek and looks very snazzy, but the functional design is ridiculous. The agitator only agitates items directly up against it and does not circulate the clothes efficiently. Some items get in the middle and get the dickens scrubbed out of them; others barely move, being stuck against the side of the drum. If this washer cleaned well I'd have no issues with it at all. I'd happily put up with the noise, which I do not find excessive. However, as is half the clothes come out almost knotted, the other half have merely been partially submerged (due to eco-effecient operations) in soapy water.

leaves lint smears
from Nevada City, CA, United States
Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum White Top Load Washer:
On dark colors ALWAYS leaves lint smears. Either lint roller or washcloth to spot clean off. My jeans and dark tees always icky.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

greatest dryer I ever bought
from Overland Park, KS, United States
The best dryer I bought always check your dryer vent duct and the opening should be open all time. Sometimes a bird can make a nest in the vent opening clean vent from dryer opening to the opening in the roof once a year or lint will accumulated in the dryer . I will recommend this dryer .
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Washer does the job of cleaning
from Columbus, OH, United States
I bought this washer in April 2014 It washes great, but just a little noise. The noise doesn't take away from the washing efficiency Several different wash levels and cycles It was a great buy...make sure to buy afresh power for monthly cleaning of the tub.
Whirlpool Cabrio Washer
By Daily launderer
from Getzville New York
Purchased this product about a month ago. Transitioned from a noisy, bulky front load washer. Was pleasantly surprised by the size, since my first floor laundry is on the small size. Am able to move freely in that space and not be boxed in by bulky machines. I have found that washing on the bulky cycle works best for me. Had an initial lint problem (all items once wash cycle was complete, were covered in lint) using the "normal" cycle. Once I tried the different preferences, I found that the "bulky" cycle is what works best for us. No lint, clothes are not entangled in each other and they come out fresh smelling and clean.

Everytime I do a load of laundry now I am continually amazed by the quietness of the machine, the fact that so little water is required for washing and the fact that no matter what size the load from 10 pairs of jeans to several small throw rugs to 4 complete sets of sheets, as well as smaller loads of lingerie, everything comes out sparkling clean and fresh. This machine can handle everything you throw at it! My only regret is that I held on to my agitator washer for way too long.
love the new washer
By Carol fm

I love my new high efficiency washer. It is quieter than my other washer. The controls are easy and self explanatory. Also, large enough to fit my blankets and larger loads.

Works well , able to sense the clothes, only thing is I wish it had more water for the load.
couldn't have bought a better washer than this
from Syracuse, NY, United States
I love using the ecocycle so the clothes come out almost dry so it takes less use in the dryer. I love all the different cycle options as well.
Very Quiet and efficient
from Chicago, Ill
I've only had my Whirlpool Cabrio Platimum a few months, but I can aleready see the difference in the cleanness of the clothes. Also, the Whirlpool is very queit and easy to use, and saves money on water bills and detergent. Can't ask for more! Thanks, Great Machine.
