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 have owned two whirlpoool agitator washing machines before this one. I was very pleased with their performance. However, I am very disappointed with the performance of this machine. It does not clean clothes. The water level is so low that the clothes cannot move freely in the machine. I have had clothes come out of the washer with dry spots on them because the water never reached those areas. Clothes have come out of washer with stain stick still on them. Items come out of washer full of lint especially noticeable on dark clothing! Very frustrating! I also dislike the fact that the washer must be cleaned. The tablets are not cheap and after the clean cycle is complete I must then take a cloth and wipe the interior to remove the dirt and lint from each hole inside the machine. Unbelievable! The fabric softener dispenser is not removable so after about five loads I have to take a towel and clean out globs of thick, clumpy softener that has remained in the tray. It is not energy efficient because I often have to run the clothes through two or three wash cycles in order for them to be clean. The cycles are far too long for each load as well. I am happy to say that I loved my whirlpool washers for 30 years but I am very unhappy with this one and feel that my money was wasted. I would love to have my old Whirlpool washer and dryer back. A washer should clean clothes!

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

    I replaced an old washer with this Cabrio 2 months ago and at first did not like the sensing option and locked lid but now I am accustomed to it and like it alot. I can put many more clothes per load and it uses less water and still gets the clothes clean and well spun. Great value for the money.

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

    After having to use a Laundromat for the last 6 years, it's great to have my own washer and dryer again. But, this totally blew me out of the water! (no pun intended) This machine not only keeps my whites; white and colors brighter, it took the "whites" from dull back to nearly new white! It uses less soap and is so quiet. I'm so glad we went with this brand and style. I love it!

    We have only had our washer a short time, but I am totally impressed. It is simple/not complicated as some of the new appliances are. It is very quiet. And it cleans our laundry beautifully. We have already decided we wll be replacing our dryer with a whirlpool, when the time comes.
