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

Great Features for all Fabrics

Comments about Whirlpool Chrome Shadow Top Load Washer:
I am really happy I ended up buying this washer. I did a lot of research before I bought. I had a front loader and was tired of the musty smell they all have. My daughter bought this Whirpool and she keep telling me how great it was, so I got one too! I love the features and my clothes are clean and they smell so fresh. I like how they washer fits in my small space, but is a very large washer inside.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love my new Whirlpool® Cabrio® Platinum 4.8 cu. ft washer. I t is eco-freindly, using less water and detergent than my previous washer. My clothes are cleaner in less time, saving me time spent washing and drying clothes. I love all of the features on this new washer.

I bought this in July but I have to say I don't like how there is always detergent on the clothes when I take them out of the washer and they're very wrinkled when they're line dried !
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I am very pleased so far, I love the steam and sanitize cycles. I purchased this model because it was the least expensive top load with steam and sanitize. It seems extremely fast and efficient. Large enough capacity to wash anything. I have a pool home and we can have 20 towels to wash, this washer can handle it in one load and one cycle. I had a front load washer before this and was not satisfied with its size or ability to clean. I love this washer so far. I have already noticed my first utility bills are lower.

I bought this washer after being frustrated with my front load. I love all the features it has and how quiet it is. Couldn't be happier.
It has plenty of room to wash large things

I like the color and the large tub but its alittle tall for a short person . But I still like it.
So far so good
from Weaverville, NC, United States
I bought this about a month ago and am very happy with it so far. It replaced a smelly, moldy 7 year old front loader. So far it is excellent at washing clothes and I have had not problems whatsoever. It has a lot of nice features, is easy to use, and I hope it holds up over time.
Love the size!

I bought this washer 3 months ago. I love the capacity it has. It washes clothes well and they always smell clean. I love having so many settings to choose from. I also have the matching dryer with the steam action and it's great to touch up wrinkles quickly. My only complaint is this washer is not quiet at all!!
