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.

    I was so excited when I got this washing machine. We do a lot of laundry, and this washer was large enough to do the trick. Other than the fact that during the rinse cycle it would sound like a jet plane was landing in mylaundry area (located it my basement), I loved this washing machine.....until it started to leak water & lots of it from the bottom of the machine. We called in our friend who is an appliance repair man, and he told us it would cost almost $700 for the new parts, mainly new bearings. This washer died after only 4 years. Not worth the $ that I paid for it.

                      We are very pleased with our new Whirlpool Cabrio 3.8 cu. ft. HE Top Load washer with precision dispenser. Our new washing machine uses less water and energy than our previous washing machine. We like the Automatic Load Size sensing feature. No more guessing what the water level should be. This machine has a lot of cycle options to choose from. We are getting the right fabric care for the clothes we are washing.

                            I had no idea how far technology has come. The last time I bought a washer was in 2002. This washer senses how much water is needed for each load and therefore saves on water. It also makes some very quirky noises since it doesn't use a spindle. When I first turned it on it sounded like R2-D2 from "Star Wars". When the wash cycle started it sounded like some deep voice was grunting. It is in my garage, I don't have a cellar since I live in Florida, so I don't really hear the noises that it makes. I absolutely love this machine.
