Being recently single, buying a new washer and dryer wasn't something I was going to take lightly. I wanted to make sure I made a good decision because I don't plan to make this large of a purchase again for a long time. And, I chose to buy a washer/dryer set first and will have to put off buying a refrigerator because I can't afford all three right now. I did research and knew I didn't want a front load washer, but had read reviews that some top loaders caused clothes to be extremely wrinkled. This caused some concern because I didn't want to have to iron. Another thing I had read was that some new top load washers are extremely noisy and it was recommended not to buy them if the laundry room was close to living areas. Anyway, I took a chance and bought this top load Whirlpool and couldn't be more pleased with it! Wrinkling is absolutely not a problem! Clothes come out practically dry because of the efficient spin cycle, but they are not wrinkled any more than any other washer I've owned, maybe even less. As far as noise is concerned, my laundry room is very near the family room and noise has not been a factor at all. One of the best features of this washer is the size of the tub! I can fit a king-sized comforter in it which means I don't have to take my bedding to the laundry mat! I am absolutely happy with my decision to buy this wash machine and would be happy to recommend it to anyone who asks for referral!

I have wanted a washer without the middle agitator so that I could wash bigger batches like my queen comforter, etc. In reading the reviews many mentioned the large loads, including large comforters, etc with great results. I just purchased the cabrioWTW8000 and was disappointed to read that only small comforters should be put in. My question is how do I do a large load including my comforter and keep the center open? Doesn't seemed like I gained any more space then I would have had with an agitator. I really know I am going to love everything else about the machine. I did a lot of looking and felt this one would suit my needs the best. But I am am looking for answers about the loading. Betsie.

I am a first time buyer of energy efficient...i.e., low water...washer and I am impressed. Everything comes out clean! The unit is very quite. The delicate cycle was fantastic, cleaned well and worked as if I hand washed the items.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Huge wash loads!
from Butte, Montana, United States
This washer cleans well and the large load size cuts down on time and energy costs
Great replacement to a old agitator machine
from Endicott, NY, United States
We bought the washer and it has much more room to wash and the clothes come out clean. It is easy to operate and we don't need to go to a Laundromat to clean the comforter or blankets. I would recommend it to anyone buying a new washer.
We love our new Washer
from Independence, KY, United States
We bought this a short time ago and we fell in love with its' features as well as its' performance.
Large capacity, easy to load
With no big agitator in the way, this is easy to load. It does a great job at cleaning. It is a little noisier than I expected. But it's performance and price more than make up for it.
Love all the features!!
from Loxahatchee, FL, United States
This washer is the best appliance I ever had. I especially love the delay start. Makes washing clothes much more convenient. Also love the timer. I always know exactly when my wash will be done.

The new washer is a great improvement over our previous whasher. Is is surpriseinlly quiet & usees about a quarter less water which in turn requires considerably les drying time. Bottom line, silent, save water, & electricity at a very reasonably cost. D. Monteleone
good for the money

Nice looking but do not like that you have to push the fabric softener button if you ad fabric softener. I sometimes forget to push it.
Leaves Dusty Residue
This washer leaves a dusty residue on clothing that is tough to remove. Its very obvious on dark clothes. It also builds up mildew very quickly if the lid is not left open for aeration. Odors build in this machine without consistent use of Afresh. Cycles times seem a bit long. Otherwise, washer is ok. Noise is not much of an issue. Vibrations don't move the unit due to the pads it sits on.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This unit replaced our 10 year old washer. At first, I was intimidated by the HE washer instructions and the use of less water. I followed the recommended instructions, which were easy, and am very satisfied with the results. I have read many reviews prior to this purchase, most were very good. However, some reviewers stated they were unhappy with the clothes being wrinkled when coming out of the washer. Just a little shake before throwing them in the dryer and there is no problem, and they dry in half the time. If you hang your clothes out, then that may be a problem. Another complaint I read was detergent was left on clothes. I prefer liquid and placing it in the machine before loading clothes, as instructed, I have not had a problem. So far, I am very satisfied with this purchase.
