Whirlpool Cabrio 3.8 Cu. Ft. High Efficiency White Top Loading Washer - WTW5800BW

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.
  • Deep Clean Option
    The Deep Clean option adds increased wash action and extra rinsing to help break down deep soils.
  • 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.
  • EasyView™ Framed Glass Lid
    A see-through glass lid allows you to look inside and see the wash action while the load is in progress.
  • Soak Cycle
    Choose this cycle for the added convenience of soaking heavily-soiled clothes right in the washer.
  • 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.
  • Estimated Time Remaining Display
    A digital display on the console counts down the amount of time left in the cycle, so you can always know when it's time to remove items from the washer.
  • 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.
  • Delay Wash Option
    Sets the wash cycle to begin up to 12 hours later so you can take advantage of non-peak utility rates or wash at a more convenient time.
  • 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.
  • Adjustable End-of-Cycle Signal
    Avoid leaving clean clothes in the washer with the adjustable end-of-cycle signal. Thanks to a helpful tone, you'll know when your wash cycle is finished. You can even turn it off

as i said above we've had this duo unit about 6 weeks as of 11-8-13 we are immensely satisfied with the performance so far we just got our first electric and water bill and we believe that we saved a few dollars the very first month my wife does most of the washing but i have done a few loads and find it very easy to operate it is so cool looking through the glass and seeing the washer working as it does it is also fairly quite not completely but i would say less noise than a lot of others we've had before i would recommend this product to anyone in my family and a lot of my friends

I bought this machine to replace a 18 year old Whirlpool set. This is the most disappointing washer I have ever seen or used.
The water level is so low that with only 5 pair of jeans in the washer, they do not get wet before the machine switches to the Rinse cycle. When I took them out of the dryer, there were stains from places where apparently the soap was left on the jeans and the rinse did not work properly. HUGE spots! The washer is VERY loud. Also, the drum rolls all over the inside of the case. There is no way I can see to get more water into the machine, unless maybe I tried to pour a bucket in? LOL. The clothes seem to grind against the bottom of the machine, and often do not completely turned over even once. It is obvious they are not getting properly wet, washed, or rinsed. I can tell you, I have tried both the settings intended for jeans, with the same results. My other loads have similar poor performance, as far as I can tell. Another flaw in the design is that the tops of the set are sloped, so it is impossible to even lay clothes on top without everything sliding off the top of the machine. I need this space to be useable!

Cabrio Washer

By 

from Moody, AL

Bought the first one and the ball bearings went out in 13 months. It took the store almost a month to get a replacement to me. The second unit starting acting up at the end of the first year. The store told me I would have a years warranty on the unit and that isn't the case.

Looks like I'll be purchasing a new washer when my tax return comes in.

No More going down/up my steps 3 times for a load-

By 

from central Iowa

Verified Buyer

No More going down/up my steps 3 times for every load-my last washer was a cabrio and lasted 5 years-so wanted to give this one a shot-It rings the clothes out so much nicer and doesn't seem to take a lot of water or laundry detergent-our other one poured out oil underneath and then computer board started doing funning things-with this new one it has a power button and a start button-what I don't care for is you can start the washer with just start button-I do not do this however-I do it like its supposed to-start with power button and then go to start-washer adjust water-and length of time washing on its own when it knows how much clothes is but in it---smart.

Didn't last much past two years

By 

from Virginia

Two years and three months after the initial purchase, the controller went out on the machine. I was told by Whirlpool that because I didn't purchase the extended warranty that there was nothing they would do. I expected Whirlpool to have more durable products. I also didn't realize that I needed to make the extra investment in a warranty to get me through to year 3. To boot, the controller is on back order and I'm day 13 into waiting for the part to arrive. They must be having quite a number of issues with this machine. Very disappointed.

Very efficient

By 

from Edmonton

Verified Buyer

I have had this machine for a few weeks now and have been very impressed. It does a great job of cleaning and the spin is so efficient it had reduced drying time significantly. The only draw back is sometimes it has trouble balancing heavier loads and you have to do a second spin cycle after depositing the laundry in the drum

A Silver Lining

By 

from St. John's, NL Canada

Verified Buyer

When my old washer gave out, I was not very happy with the bad luck. Within two days, I had a new Whirlpool Cabrio sitting in my laundry room. What good luck! The machine is sleek, easy to use and the bottom line is it cleans my washes wonderfully. Now, I have visions of a new Whirlpool dryer sitting next to it.

Don't buy

By 

from Memphis,TN

Bought this washer a year and half ago and it has broke twice. This time it's the lock. It keeps locking and unlocking as soon as it's turned on and will not wash clothes and of course it's out of warranty. The matching dryer also broke first year an the whole board had to be replaced.
