I got this washer a few weeks ago, and I must say I was really shocked on how well it worked...a lot of reviews stated that the washer was loud I'm sorry they must have been talking about another model because I have it in my basement and I do not hear it run at all. I do like the fact that there is a place for all that you use in the washer such as soap or softener. I do have the gray or chrome model and I do have to wipe it down often but that is nothing it comes clean with one light passing of a damp rag . the controls are all touch you hardly have to touch the controls and they light right up and let you know what you have selected. With this model I can fit a lot of clothes in it without it bugging over loaded and they come clean and spin out very well. Another thing I have seen people complain about was the time it took for the washer to wash the clothes well its all on the settings you use a normal size load runs about 58 min and that is with me having the spin cycle on a faster spin. The longest would have been 1hour and 58 minutes and that is with pre soak bulky load with the steam cycle ...which was a kings size blanket...Now I'm about 5'4" and for some thing that are in the washer I do have to stand on my tippy toes to reach but even with the washer off you can turn the tub so that you are not reaching all the way to the back of the tub...that's a big plus for me. what I recommend to a friend course I will and after showing my mother how well this set works she is now buying one her self.

We bought it maybe 6 months ago and it's the worst washer we ever owned. It actually makes your clothes dirty. My black clothes always comes out of the machine with white spots. I tried everything. Washing it twice, washing it inside out, washing it with extra rince, putting less clothes, putting less soap... I've never experienced such a nightmare when it comes to washing my clothes. Hate this washer. Don't buy it unless you want your clothes dirtier and you want to look like a fool.

Doing Wash Isn't a Chore
I purchased the Cabrio about a month ago and am very happy with its performance. The capacity is amazing and my king comforter has never been cleaner!
from Chantilly VA
I did a load with two jeans and two sweatshirts. I used just the presets for this load. After the initial wet down I looked down through the clear lid and saw one of the labels from one of the jeans plastered (by water of course) up against the side of the tub. During the wash action of the paddle on the bottom, that label never moved. There was not enough water in the tub. The machine is supposed to figure out the correct ratio of water to clothes. The water that was initially added for the rinse cycle also was not enough to move the label. It was not until the spin cycle started that the label came down. Now I just let the machine know that all my clothes are heavily soiled and the machine does the rest. I was able to tell that the machine is more gentle on the clothes than the old agitator machine. The spin cycle is excellent, but the installers did not use a level to level the wash machine and I think it is off by an eighth of a bubble so the basket moves quite a bit ,but the machine itself does not move. I haven't used the steam cycle.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

What would normally take me two loads fit into the tub with room to spare. Hello free afternoons. It's whisper quiet too.
Great savings on water and energy consumption

Awesome, just bought this month
Loads of features
After one month of use what strikes me most is how quite it is. Huge load capacity, We wash our king size comforter in it. The steam clean for the whites works great. The only reason I'm giving it a four is the length of time per load, it takes about 1 hour on average per load. A lot longer than my last washer.
Can wash alot at once, also very quite
from Easley, SC
I bought this in october and love the washer, only problem it has is washing out stains on the first go around. Almost wish I got a front loader.

We bought this set about a month ago. We bought Whirlpool due to our old ones lasting 15+ years. So far we are very satisfied with our purchase.
Large Loads - NO Problem
By Karen Mom of 3
I have a family of 5 at home. We all wear adult sized clothing. I can't believe how much clothes this washer fits. What was an extra large load with my old washer is now a medium sized load in this washer. It also cleans great. No soap or softener residue left behind. My clothes feel softer.
Love this washer!

Bought this a month ago to replace a front loader. The machine is quiet and efficient. It cleans beautifully. Only downsides are the tub is extremely deep which could be a problem if you can't reach the bottom of it and the beep signalling the end of the cycle is not very loud. All else is fantastic.
