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.

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum White Top Load Washer:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
Excellent Features and very efficient
from Tampa, FL, United States
The sensor in the middle on the washer is great so that I do not have to worry about flooding the washer. It indicates how much water is needed and reduces a little bit of money spent on my water bill. amazing!
Wrinkles and ironing are in your future
from TX, United States
I have tried every cycle and spin option without success to avoid permanent wrinkling. My clothing that I used to hang and dry now needs a ride in the dryer to partially recover from the washer. My washer tub is large yet my sheets do not ever get covered with water during the wash cycle. My black pants have soap/fabric softener streaks. Are my clothes clean? Hard to tell. I usually do an extra rinse without any better results, except I am hoping the clothes are finally clean. The light weight knits and permanent press items do successfully come out without need for ironing. I recommend front loading. I wish I had stuck with that.
I love my Cabrio Washer & Dryer
By Holly Kotarski

This is by far the best Washer & Dryer I have ever had!!!!
from Windsor, CT, United States
I always had a traditional washer with larger agitator, then bought a front loader from a friend which couldn't handle the loads of laundry we do (i have 3 boys). We bought the Whirlpool Cabrio initially for it's size and i have to say I am so pleased. Clothes are clean, machine is really quiet while running. I love it! :)
fell apart after 5 years
from Yarmouth, MA, United States
First the latch broke. Then the belt started wailing and grinding. Now it won't finish a cycle. It costs more to fix the washer than it does to buy a new one.
