Whirlpool Cabrio 3.8 Cu. Ft. High Efficiency White Top Loading Washer - WTW5500BWH

Enjoy exceptional cleaning and fabric care with a washer that combines the best of both worlds. Colors stay vibrant with the Whirlpool® Cabrio® top load washer because it uses Adaptive Wash technology and five different adaptive wash actions to be more gentle while delivering better cleaning performance1. It senses and adapts to the size of your load and uses the right amount of water for great cleaning. Not only does this model add detergent, bleach and fabric softener at the right time during the cycle with Precision Dispense, but it also features a smooth impeller that is specially designed to give you better fabric care and more wash capacity. And, with 3.8 cu. ft., you'll always have enough room to wash more than two baskets of laundry in one load.

Features:

  • Adaptive wash technology
    Adaptive Wash technology automatically senses and adapts to the size of your load and uses the right amount of water for great cleaning. The wash system is more gentle while delivering better cleaning performance1.
  • Precision Dispense
    Senses and adapts to each load, adding detergent, bleach or fabric softener at just the right time. A concentrated burst of detergent showers directly onto clothes to penetrate stains and pretreat soils.
  • 5 adaptive wash actions
    Up to 5 different adaptive wash actions provide a combination of powerful cleaning and gentle fabric care. They sense and adapt to the needs of each load, handling everything from heavily soiled jeans to delicate silks.
    additional features...
  • Care Control Temperature Management
    Adjusts the cold and hot water inlets to reach temperatures that are warm enough to dissolve detergents. Water is kept from overheating to help reduce shrinking and/or color bleeding.
  • 3.8 cu. ft. capacity
    Wash more than 2 baskets of laundry in one load. The washer’s 3.8 cu. ft. capacity wash basket offers enough space to handle larger loads and bulky items.
  • Smooth Impeller
    This washer's high-efficiency system features a specially designed low-profile plate at the bottom of the wash basket to give you more wash capacity and better fabric care.
  • Smooth Spiral Stainless Steel Wash Basket
    The stainless steel wash basket resists odors and rust and features a spiral design for greater fabric care and gentle cleaning performance. The smooth surface helps protect delicate fabrics from snagging.
  • Meets CEE Tier 3 Standards
    CEE Tier 3 standard is based on the Consortium for Energy Efficiency qualifying product lists. Tier 3 is the highest efficiency and only the most efficient models meet it, making this one of the most water- and energy-efficient washers you can buy. Visit cee1.org for more information.
  • ENERGY STAR® Qualified
    ENERGY STAR® qualified models exceed government standards by over 20% to help conserve natural resources and save money on your utility bills.
  • Quiet Wash Noise Reduction System
    Keep operational sounds inside the washer and out of living areas with sound-absorbing materials around the wash basket.
  • Quiet Spin Technology
    Quiet Spin technology offers a unique suspension system that senses and adapts to each load, making upper-floor installation possible.
  • Deep Water Wash Cycle
    Help break down heavy soils and eliminate pretreating with the Deep Clean Wash cycle. It allows for a deep water wash on select washers.
  • Quick Wash Cycle
    The Quick Wash cycle is designed to clean small loads rapidly.
  • Super Wash Cycle
    Provides optimal cleaning for your heavily soiled fabrics and heavy, colorfast clothes. Faster spin speeds combine with Adaptive Wash technology to remove tough stains from sturdier fabrics.
  • Clean Washer Cycle with Affresh®
    Deep-fill the washer to clean even those areas that aren't normally reached by low-water wash cycles. Add an affresh® Washer cleaner tablet for best results.
  • Delicate Cycle
    Low-speed wash action helps you take better care of delicate fabrics. It also works well on waterproof items like shower curtains and raincoats.
  • Bulky Items Cycle
    Easily cleans larger items like comforters, sleeping bags, down jackets or pillows.
  • Automatic Water Level Settings
    Regulates the amount of water based on the size of the load. Only the amount needed to clean is used, increasing efficiency and helping the environment.
  • 800 RPM Maximum Spin Speed
    Faster spin speeds in the washer remove more moisture from clothes, so they spend less time in the dryer.
  • Designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.
    Whirlpool® washers are built with American pride and designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

We decided on the Cabrio after much research and talking to several "hometown" appliance dealers. They all recommended Whirlpool and specifically the Cabrio line as we were not interested in a front loading machine. Since purchase I have tried every setting on this machine and it does amazing in every cycle. With a family of 5, we do ALOT of laundry!! I was skeptical at first about the low water and how it would clean, but have been pleasantly surprised at how clean the clothes come out, even my husband's greasy clothes. I love the extra rinse feature, because when I do put grease removers on his clothes I simply use the extra rinse & walaa, they are clean and no soap or grease remover residue remains. The other thing I love is how much dryer the clothes are spun out too, this cuts my drying time in comparison to my old unit by over half. I would recommend these to anyone. I love the clean feature that allows you to clean the washer monthly by just dropping in an tablet and forgetting it.

This washer has given me more problems than I ever had with my old style washing machine. Without the center agitator The sheets, towels and t-shirts get stretched across the entire area and turns under. More times than not, it is off balance. I never had this with the washing machine that had an agitator. I can not fill the tub with water to soak something. Overall I cant stand this machine and I am looking to sell it to purchase one of the older styels.

JUNK

By 

from Bonita Springs, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio 3.8 Cu. Ft. High Efficiency White Top Loading Washer:

Sold only to builders. Unbelievably noisy. sounds like grinding when it is in the wash cycle. Can't trade it in. Came in a new condo - I wanted to throw out, but my wife said let's keep it until we see something better on sale. Have put Cabrio's in 2 of my houses and all 3 kids - this is not worthy of the nameplate.

Never Worked do not waste your money.

By 

from Arecibo, PR

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio 3.8 Cu. Ft. High Efficiency White Top Loading Washer:

This is the worst washer machine i have in my entire life. Since the first day it didnt work. I have to wash clothing over 3 time to get a decent wash. 6 month after purchase it wont move. Before it was completely useless the only way to wash something was to put it in bulky and still took over 2 hours per wash. So imagine only a few jeans over 5 hours of work because this useless machine. You have been warned. Just dont waste your money.

Lots of features

By 

from Murrells Inlet, SC`

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio 3.8 Cu. Ft. High Efficiency White Top Loading Washer:

I bought this washer two months ago and it has taken me a while to get use to all the different features. You really need to read the manual to understand some of the settings. The first couple of loads came out with white marks on a couple of dark items and I was unable to remove the marks, so I wasn't too happy about that. The washer is a low level water machine and although it is a large capacity washer I don't put as much in as I would have my smaller washing machine because I don't feel like they are getting clean. Still not to confident in this washer yet.

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio 3.8 Cu. Ft. High Efficiency White Top Loading Washer:

I have had this for roughly 6 months and it is working as expected. I do have to use the deep water wash if I want my clothes truly cleaned. The non-agitator style washers don't seem to work as well as the old ones.

okay washer for the price

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio 3.8 Cu. Ft. High Efficiency White Top Loading Washer:

Seems to work fine on small items... has trouble getting blankets and sheets clean. I Don't know if it's because it uses less water or what but I've tried the other settings and nothing has seemed to work super well.

Water Saving Wizard

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio 3.8 Cu. Ft. High Efficiency White Top Loading Washer:

We live in an area where water usage must be minimized. However, I do suggest that more direction be given about the detergent to be used. Our military commissary system does not carry the niche Tide product recommended -- therefore an issue for 3 million potential consumers.

Too soon to tell

By 

from Melrose, MA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio 3.8 Cu. Ft. High Efficiency White Top Loading Washer:

The wash machine is adequate - wash machine technology has not changed much recently and this machine does what it is suppose to do, using less water. If you can get a good price, consider it. When loading clothes, the agitator cannot be covered. It would be helpful if Whirlpool installed an extender - a protrusion to the agitator that automatically kept the area clear of clothing. For heightchallenged individuals, a side load machine is better. This is a tall machine, and if your cellar floor requires putting the machine on cinder blocks, it is difficult for shorter people to access the inside of the machine.
