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.

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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I replaced a seven year Cabrio set with a new one. I am very happy I did. I love the new set!!

I bought this washer in February 2014 and it has been fantastic. All our clothes come out clean even our white and light blue throw rugs come out clean like they were new!
Extremely Happy with this Purchase
from Dayton, OH, United States
I've had this washer for 4 months, and I love it! It has all the features I wanted and more. I'm glad I'm not any shorter; however, as I might have trouble reaching into the tub to retrieve my clothes! :) This really is a great product, and I absolutely love the capacity. I no longer have to go to the laundromat to launder my comforters and other bulky items!
