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.

the machine does a fine job at getting the contents clean. my question is that our unit does make excessive ratcheting noise while agitating the clothes. Is this normal? we are concerned that this irregular noise is a sign of potential failure. we purchased the washer and dryer because they were advertised as quiet. the dryer lives up to this claim. the washer does not.

        i bought this washer about a yr. ago w dry and the bleach smell in my house makes me rather very sick and I would not ever buy one again and would not recommend it to anyone who wants their whites sanitized for cleanliness I absolutely hate this washer and have made a very bad decision on the he brand I have to wash every load with bleach twice just to get them clean for the water does not penatrate all pieces of materials .

              Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Top-Load Washer:

              I have had this washer for over a year. I have two children and clothes get dirty. Items will go in with something (dirt/poop/whatever) on them and come out with the exact same still there. And I'm not talking about staining. I'm saying small particles of whatever was on the clothing is STILL there. My $300 washer never left a speck. This thing was a huge waste of money!!

              Do NOT recommend it

                    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Top-Load Washer:

                    If I could have chosen a negative star for rating, I would have. This is the absolute worst washing machine I have ever used. I have repeatedly called for repairs because the clothes do not come clean, some are not even wet in spots when the load is finished washing. Energy efficiency is a joke. It ruins the clothes. They boast that it uses water and energy, and one person wrote it is fast - these are not true claims.

                    Buyer beware: It takes 44 minutes to wash a load on delicate, 79 minutes on whites cycle, 38 on quick wash - it has ruined numerous garments, undergarments, wash cloths and towels and a shower curtain. I used to be able to set my former washer for a specific number of minutes of washing and/or soaking time, this one dictates the number of minutes based on the level of "soil" light, medium or high; it adds minutes for added rinse but you HAVE to use that feature on EVERY load and then still the re-rinse and spin cycle of 25 additional MINUTES. This washer uses so much time and electricity hours that it is a joke. It boasts of having capacity for up to three baskets of clothes in a load - are you kidding? I used to wash 6 to 8 bath towels in my old Maytag suds saver, and now I can only wash 4 to 5 or they don't smell fresh when I pull them out after 79 MINUTES of washing and 25 MORE minutes of an additional rinse and spin (which it NEEDS). So a load that used to take me less than 30 minutes takes me two loads for a total of 208 MINUTES (104 each). And the fabric is being worn out and shredded in this washer.
                    I washed five t-shirts last summer in it and the shirts came out looking as dirty as when I put them in. I brought a shirt to show the sales manager at the appliance store where I purchased it and he was out. He did NOT return a call to me, even though I left a verbal message and written note for him with another sales person in his department.

                    New wash cloths look decades old after being washed in this piece of junk, other clothes do too.

                    I had an industrial strength shower curtain that I washed on delicate light soil level (lowest setting possible) in warm water; "I HAD it" is the optimal phrase here, because it came out of washer shredded - yet I have been told by the repairmen "there is not anything wrong with the washer.'

                    I have been married 30 years and doing laundry since I was ten years old. I NEVER have had these problems with other washing machines. I used the detergent recommended and sold by the appliance center where I purchased this machine from, so don't think it is the laundry detergent like the salesman and repair folks tried to tell us.

                    I did my homework before buying this - Consumer Reports rated it BEST. I rate it DO NOT BUY.

                          We bought our washer for the capacity and are satisfied with most of the features. One huge disadvantage for us is the rinse and spin cycle doesn't dispense fabric softener on this selection. We use this on loads that require bleach and re-rinse with vinegar and softener. One other problem noted is that the oxi tray does not completely empty occasionally.

                                                  Bought the top load washer and matching gas dryer a few weeks ago. I find both control panels very easy to use and I like the way they light up. I also find both appliances quieter than my previous appliances. Great since my laundry room is on the main level near the kitchen. I like the new color and look of the appliances. I have never purchased a Whirlpool appliance before and so far I am pleased with the way they are working and washing my cloths with no problem. I now hope as time goes by the set works as well as it is now and there will be no manger repair problems.
