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.

Grinding noise is ridiculous

This model is certainly a step up from even last year's. I have used both. But the grinding noise during agitation is just too loud and becomes irritating. Can be heard 2-3 rooms away. The bleach dispenser no longer rinses with fresh water, which means two things: You need to measure the bleach since you can't see how much has been poured in, and worse, the drops of leftover bleach are on the surface of the dispenser, just waiting for your color clothing to rub across it the next time you do a load of wash. The latch receiver for the lid is more like a very small tray, which catches every little piece of dirt or lint. The electronics remember the last cycle used, but I wonder why they don't remember you used a 2nd rinse? The highest spin speed is very quiet, but I don't believe it removes as much water from the clothes as the previous model, however, this also means the clothing isn't as wrinkled from a harsh spin cycle. The selections of various cycles are nice and quickly learned. There is a "Deep Water" option, however, don't think you will get a full tub of water, but it's still a welcome option to add a couple of gallons to a wash. Interestingly, the water temperature selection has 5 choices, soil level has 4 choices and water temperature 3. Because your only guidance are the blue lights below each control, it would have been better to have each of these wash options have the same number of choices. Ladies may not appreciate that there is no inset for your fingers to go in to when raising the lid. I bet we'll hear about broken fingernails at some point. The tub is deep, as you would expect for a washer this size, and controls the load well. No out of balance issues so far. The 3 compartment dispenser sticks out a bit in the tub, and more than once it has opened part way when removing laundry from the back of the tub (laundry catches on the front edge of the dispenser tray) And finally, the start/end of cycle chimes... They are a little bit of heaven. Not annoying, very pleasant. Just wish they were louder on the loudest setting, so could be heard in another room. Overall, a much better choice than previous models, if they would do something about the grinding noise during agitation.

Great features

By Linda279

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Top-Load Washer:

This washer is so easy to use. Just touch the wash selection, mixed, casuals, whites, delicates, or bulky/sheets. Then touch the wash selection, normal, quick, cold, deep water, or colorfast; and the washer does the rest. It easily washes a king size comforter. This product is great.

Great capacity!

By 1happygirl

from Indiana, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Top-Load Washer:

I bought this hoping that it would be a great addition for our family. I LOVE the capacity this washer has!!! I get my laundry done in much less time now and fewer loads. The touch screen takes a bit of getting use to using, but the washer itself is quiet and cleans well. I love it as much as I did my last Cabrio. My only complaint is that no matter how level it is the tray for the softener holds water in it after the load is complete. Other than that, I have no complaints! Thank you Whirlpool for such a great washer for our size of family! Laundry is not so dreadful anymore!

Leaves detergent residue on clothes

By bwitch16

from Annapolis, MD, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Top-Load Washer:

We've had our washer for a year now and every time we wash dark clothes in cold or cool cycle, there are some sort of detergent or softener residue left on the clothes. Even after choosing "extra rinse" we still have to run the clothes through an extra rinse cycle to get the stains off. This does not sound like an efficient washer.... and yes, we do use High-efficiency detergents, as required.

Owned for three months

By Jason48111

from CA

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Top-Load Washer:

It's an ok washer. Not sure about the energy efficiency standards. It uses less washer but the shortest wash time is about 40 minutes long. A lot of times you can still feel and smell soap still in the clothes after washing. There are times when some of the load never even gets water on it and only the bottom half of the load actually gets washed.

Large Capacity

By BrittA73

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Top-Load Washer:

We bought the Whirlpool Washer/Dryer set for our new house. We wanted something large, but didn't have room for a front loader. This top loader is amazing. It holds so much laundry and gets all of it so clean. I have been very happy with my purchase.
