I purchased this washer to be able to handle my over-sized king sized comforters. It does a beautiful job on them. Because it is so big inside I can load it up when I am doing regular wash also. It saves on water and electric for me. The different settings are perfect for the laundry that I do. Ex: towels, sheets, bulky, normal etc. I love the deep clean feature also because it gets the smell out of things! You can not go wrong with this one. Make sure to read the directions on how to load it. Many people do not load it right and say that it doesn't work. It's not the washer's fault it is OE...operator error. I love my new washer and you will too!

10 Reasons NOT to buy this washing machine: 1. You cannot soak clothes in hot water. When I need to soak clothes, it is because a child had an accident during the night or there is a stain â€" both of these options MUST have hot water to soak the clothes in, but this washer will not allow you to do that. 2. The water it does allow your clothes to soak in (only cold or warm), is not actually soaking your clothes in a tub of water. It gets the clothes partially wet and they sit there damp, not wet. What good this actually does for cleaning clothes, I have yet to figure out. 3. Your clothes will never be clean unless you choose the â€œHeavyâ€� option. I have no idea why it has other options, they are useless. 4. The heavy option takes 90 minutes to wash a load of clothes, no matter how big or small the load is. 90 minutes? I find this absolutely ridiculous. 5. We were told by the salesman that the washer could determine the size of the load and would adjust itself accordingly. Yep, it sure does â€" 90 minutes for extra small or extra large load â€" it adjusts itself by doing nothing. 6. Many times after washing a load of clothes, they do not smell good at all. Therefore, the load has to be washed again. Yep 90 + 90 means that load of clothes just took you 3 hours to wash! 7. You have to wash the machine, empty, too! You have to buy special cleaning supplies for this as well. They are not cheap either. This also takes 90 minutes. 8. A regular machine like the old ones that you can turn the water on to fill up the tub gets your clothes MUCH cleaner â€" those machines are cheaper, too! 9. I tried for months to find something good with this machine â€" I can find nothing! 10. It is MUCH more expensive than the regular washers. You will be MUCH better off to get the cheaper model

Comments about Whirlpool Chrome Shadow Top Load Washer:
I purchased both washer and dryer about three months ago. I am so happy I did. The ease of operation, the high efficiency and therefore cost effectiveness and the quiet mode make this purchase a joy to do laundry.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We bought the 4.8 cubic and its wonderful. Amazing how clean the clothes are. I don't mind doing laundry anymore. Its one of the most quiet washers Ive ever owned.
Love this washer
from Hunt valley MD
I have owned many washers, many very fancy. I love this whirlpool. Easy to use and I love all the features.
So far, so very good
If everything hold up this will turn out to be a very good purchase. Heard a few others who have owned one say the main agitation assembly goes out shortly after the mfg warranty expires. Hoping this doesn't happen to us. If it lasts 10+ years we'll be very happy and won't hesitate to buy whirlpool again.
Great features but poor engineering
from Dallas, TX, United States
Features are very good but the unit has a serious design flaw. The bleach dispenser is situated directly above the door control springs. Any moisture or leakage from the bleach dispenser will cause the springs to deteriorate and fail. Very poor design.
Doesnt Get Clothes Clean on First Wash
from MS, United States
Have to send clothes through several cycles before clean and notice and several times after washing the items looked dirtier then when I put them in.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Ocala, FL, United States
I bought this washer about 31/2 months ago and I love it! I find the lnterior light is a fabulous feature. It is worth the price. I recommend this product highly to everyone.

We've been using for about 6 weeks now..and truly believe the clothes come out cleaner, brighter than the 9 year old Whirlpool agitator model we used prior.
Love this Machine!

Day care where I work has an older model of this machine--works great. I decided if ours ever quit, this was going to be what I replaced it with. Like how it is pre-programmed for all the different types of laundry and the eco-boost is just the icing on the cake. I can save on water usage, and since it holds a large load of clothes, I don't have to do laundry so often, so I save on electricity. Clean clothes and saves money--what more can I ask for?

In a statement that stands with no other...it's MADE IN AMERICA!!! If one could actually use the words "laundry" and "heaven" in the same sentence, most would say it's a first! However, I can attest to the fact that this Whirlpool Cabrio that sits side by side with the matching dryer, has actually put me in Laundry Heaven whenever the tast of cleaning clothes is mentioned. The inside is large enough to handle virtually anything this home can ask of it, as far as cleaning. The sound while running...oh wait, I can't hear a thing! The menu options for the type of laundry are soooo simplified, I could actually have my husband of college son handle it if I ever chose to be "Queen for a Day" and deligate this duty...but why, when it's so effortless! The compartments for laundry detergent, bleach, fabric softner and Oxi booster/additive are clearly labeled and all you need to remember is upon turning the machine on, simply let it know what "extras" you may have added such as the bleach, fabric softner or Oxi. You can choose the spin speed if you don't like the one pre-programmed for your laundry type. Make sure to always do those whites on the "whites" setting when using bleach because it gives you an extra rinse (so not to leave any bleach remains that could effect another load on non whites). You can also contribute to lessening your consumer footprint with the ability to change the water temp and see how energy savvy you've become :) If you're the type who may want to see (out of curiosity) what laundry getting washed looks like, simply look through the lid, it's pretty neat! Don't get alarmed that your laundry isn't drowning in water either, it's not necessary in order to clean everything. Our clothes are cleaner now than before and with my old machine I always though all looked good...was I mistaken there. In conclusion, there is a soft yet audible tone at the end of the cycle to let you know the 1st half of the fun is over.
