Initially, I did not care for the machine because I didn't feel it got clothes as clean as the older agitation type. I really like having some of the features that come on the newer machine. It has a large capacity and I had to figure out the cycles that would get the clothes cleaner than I had originally thought and I do use more non-chlorine bleach than in the past. However, the first water bill I received after installing the new machines left no doubt that I was using less water! Have had many compliments on the appearance and capacity of the machines!!!!!!!! Overall, pleased so far! Hopefully, the Whirlpool durability is continued in the new line!

I bought this washer 4 months ago and have had my clothes and towels destroyed by this washer. The washer's claim to fame is that it is water efficient...and I agree with that however the washer does NOT allow enough water to wash the clothes without grinding and assaulting the clothes against the agitator because it does NOT provide a way to adjust the water level. My family says the clothes look like I've beat the clothes on sharp rocks in the river for hours. We hate this washer and wish we would have never bought it. I would NEVER recommend this washer unless you want your ENTIRE wardrobe to have that destroyed and stone washed look.

Terrible Washing Machine
By Dad who does laundry
from Minneapolis, MN
Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Top Load Washer:
This washing machine is a complete joke. I bought this washing machine 3 years ago. I had never been impressed with its cleaning ability for the past 3 years. This is now the 2nd (and will be the last whirlpool washing machine) I have gone through in less than 10 years. I had a service repair technician out because the washer was making really loud sounds. Turns out the washer had been leaking because the center seal failed which caused water to leak into the bearings and motor. One would think a washing machine should hold water and not leak longer than 3 years. Bearings, seal and motor all need to be replaced and will cost almost as much as the washing machine did when we bought it new. I called Whirlpool to see if the actual tub would still be under warranty (again one would think it should hold water longer than 3 years) and the only warranty on this machine is 1 year. I will be replacing both the Cabrio washer and dryer with a more reliable brand like LG or Samsung.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

BEARINGS WEAR OUT IN 3 YEARS
By Disappointed in Cabrio
I bought this washer as a set with a dryer - I was very pleased with the washer until the bearings go out. I understand that this is common for the Cabrio line. Very disappointed as most of my whirlpool washers have lasted 10+ years, sadly this one lasted only 3 years. Paid twice as much for the Cabrio. I will not be going with another Cabrio.
Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum
Just got my machine set up a month ago and I am very happy with the cleaning quality. Easy to use and does a great job
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This thing is LOUD!
from Milwaukie OR
For those of you who like this machine, wait a couple of years. The bearing will go out and it sounds like a military jet is taking off from our laundry room. We have started to plan laundry loads for times we out of the house. We have 2 teenagers in the house who aren't as organized as we would like. They will wear dirty clothes to school instead of being kept awake by this thing. I called Whirlpool and they couldn't find the Model # in their records. If I can save just one person from buying this piece of junk,( I tried using a different word but Whirlpool won't let me) , I will have done something good.
WORST washer ever!!!!
By dissatisfied customer
from Omaha NE
I purchased the washer and dryer , the worst washer ever, the clothes seriously look dirtier after coming out of the washer than before they went in. Dark clothes no matter how much liquid soap you put in , look like they have dried soap all over them. I end up hand washing most of my clothes! Wish i would have taken this washer back!

It LOOKS snazzy BUT...
from Henderson, Nevada
Purchased the set in July of 2014. It has performed just fine except it doesn't handle cotton rugs so well. It will start walking and the stop with the UL (uneven load signal). If you happen to hear it, fine but if you don't, well, you almost have to start from scratch on that load....Plus the washer is so big that now I'm wishing I'd gotten a front loader instead. It's getting harder to reach all the way to the bottom to retrieve clothes.

By disillusioned one
from Carmel, IN
I bought the Cabrio WTW7000Dw Oct. 17, 2015. It is with out a doubt the worst washer I have ever owned. The clothes, etc. get tangled and wrinkled even tho I use all of the suggestions and directions in the book. If I could afford it, I would get rid of this today!~

Should have stuck with LG
from Curtis, Michigan
We moved 3 months ago and purchased all new appliances and I just had to have the pretty gray Whirlpool set----big mistake. There is only 2 of us, so I know it is not getting over loaded. I have white detergent stains on my dark clothes and half of the time all it does is go in a circle, when it does agitate it is such a weak agitation that the top clothes never get pulled under. As far as washing your bedding, forget it. Load just keeps going off balance. I sure wish I would have bought LG again and if I could afford to just go get one, I would and just take the Cabrio to the recycle plant. And it is not as if this was a cheap washer. Very disappointed.

Worst washer I've ever owned
from Cumming GA
I bought this washer thinking that I would like the top loader version of HE instead of front loader versions because of long wash times. Still has the long wash times and my clothes are never clean. Any mildew on towels and it will not come out. I've changed detergents; used less or more; all to no avail. Finally put them in sink and soaked for over an hour and then rinsed and dried -- now they do not smell. If I wanted to wash by hand I would have bought a wash board. Also have issues with residue on dark items--does not change if I only use minimal soap. Needless to say I HATE THIS WASHER and would never recommend it. Bulky items also cause it to get off balance since they end up on top of the "agitator". Trying to get my money back.
DOES NOT CLEAN
from Findlay Ohio and Fort Myers fl.
We live in Findlay Ohio home of Whirlpool washer plant. We have never bought any appliance except for Whirlpoolfor our Findlay and Florida homes. In fact we live in the house of the first plant manager.However, this washer is a big mistake. I read the reviews and don't know what washer they are using.Just two of us so light loads. Some items don't even get wet, not to mention clean. Spinning does not clean. Use soak cycle still not clean. Will replace in January. May not be a Whirlpool product for the first time in 40 years.
