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.

Good quality machine

By 

from Hannibal, MO, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Top-Load Washer:

Large tub, does a great job cleaning clothes. And it easily washes comforters . Doesn't quite spin clothes as dry as our old Fisher Paykel but still is a good machine.

Great Features

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Top-Load Washer:

I bought this about a month ago and really like it and all of the features. With a 1yr old, appreciate having a machine that sanitizes, is quiet, and large enough to run fewer loads.

awesome

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Top-Load Washer:

we are finally able to wash that comforter that we had to take to the laundromat.my wife was so excited she couldn't wait to start laundry when she came home from work today we got the washing machine and dryer. this matching set of washer and dryer replaced an 18 year old Maytag set that we had maintenance many times. I know we will see less water usage with this new washing machine and less Electric bill usage; it is an awesome set.

Don't buy anything else!

By 

from Lake Orion, MI

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Top-Load Washer:

Great dryer. Make side you have a lot of room for this oversized monster. It goes stick out from the wall about 8"10, which is the only thing I don't like. The steam feature is nice and the static gaurd works great.

quiet and works well

By 

from New Jersey, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Top-Load Washer:

I just bought this machine, replacing my old Whirlpool washer that had to be 20 yrs. old. I am glad that I did. It seems to work very well and is quiet compared to other HE machines that I've seen. My only problem with it is that the drum is so deep and I am short. I have trouble getting to the bottom to get some of the clothes out. A small price to pay.

Love this washer!!!!

By 

from Statesville, NC, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Top-Load Washer:

We use to have a front load washer when it started to smell and then leak :-( So my husband and I decided to buy a new washer. The whirlpool caught my eye just by the color and the glass top. I really loved the look. Once I got it home I was able to do all of my laundry in just 2 days!! It washes faster then my last washer and I just love the size. I want able to do laundry for over a week while we were waiting to purchase and then deliver. So to be able to complete all my backed up laundry and then some in such a short time was great for me! By far the best washer I have ever purchased! I can't wait to purchase the dryer!!
