Laundry can be easier!

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum White Top Load Washer:
I work out daily, which means, on average, I have 2-3 times more laundry, than an average person. When I lived in a condo in the city, my only option was a front loading laundry pair, that required me to cram my load into the machine and shut the door quickly before anything 'escaped'. The machine, in a closet, also fell victim to mold building up on the gasket, and required cleaning quite frequently.It didn't have good capacity, but the space didn't allow for any other option. Since moving to a home with a designated laundry room, I was able to upgrade to the Cabrio again. I had had the first version of it in a previous home years ago, and had all but forgotten how awesome it was until my new machine arrived. All that laundry that had to be broken into multiple loads, can get done all at the same time. It's as easy as dumping the hamper into the very large opening and moving the clothing around the base agitator. It uses the same amount of water as the front load, but no gasket to worry about and it does a much larger load. I'm sure that this model was designed for a larger family than mine, but I wouldn't trade my Cabrio for any other machine. I highly recommend it, provided you have the space. The washer is 27.5" wide, which is about 1/2" wider than a traditional machine, and the dryer is 29". Make sure you check doorways and space clearances before purchasing. Thanks to the Cabrio, I ENJOY doing laundry instead of dread it. It not only saves water and energy, it also saves time. Oh- and don't over saturate the machine with too much detergent, only 2 Tablespoons of HIGH EFFICIENCY detergent per load. Think about putting too much sugar in a cup of coffee. The same way that sugar will sit on the bottom of your cup- too much detergent will deposit itself into your clothes and machine.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
