This Whirpool Cabrio is my first high efficiency (HE) washer. I was a little apprehensive about buying it, mainly because of the not-so-good reviews others have written about HE washers. I've always owned basic agitator-type machines that let me be in total control. I thought no way could I ever get a good wash without me being in charge of the water level, or being able to open the lid to poke around and check on how things were moving, tweaking this or that as I saw fit. I didn't want to give that up. So basically, my reluctance about owning a HE washer was that it uses new engineering and a philosophy that says: "Look, you put in the clothes and go away. We're gonna' lock the lid, adjust the water automatically, and wash your clothes in a way that we've vetted to be best, despite what you think you know. By the way, we'll beep when we're done. Trust us!" I didn't know if I was ready to put such blind faith into the concepts of some faraway washing machine engineers, but I pondered this: These engineers have scrutinized laundry in their labs and they are experts! They use computers, math, science, maybe even algebra! This is what they do for a living. They have wash-water in the veins! With all this know-how, they've figured out better ways to wash clothes, like how to do a better job with less water. They know what they're doing. In my little laundry room with not one computer, how could I possibly think I know more than they know? I decided to go for it.Well, despite my pre-purchase apprehension, I have to say I'm totally happy with my new HE Whirlpool Cabrio washer. I've ceded total control to the engineers and to the logic they've built into this magic white box. The Cabrio really "knows what it's doing" and the clothes come out clean and fresh! The electronic controls are not nearly as intimidating as they might look initially. In fact, the controls and the machine itself are a joy to operate. I actually look forward to using my washer! Go figure!A word about noise: I now know that high-efficiency washers work differently and make sounds that are noticeably different than older style washers. It's really unfair that some (possibly confused) reviewers characterize these "different" sounds as noise. To me, noise is a high decibel, annoying sound that makes a person want to cover his/her ears. The Cabrio is no way like that. It's very quiet. If I'm close to it when it's in a wash or rinse cycle, yes, I can hear its subdued grunting. But this low-level sound is hardly noticeable when I walk away. It's incredibly quiet when spinning to extract water, even though when I put my hand on the lid I can sense that the drum is really flying! It extracts a lot of water! And it's solid as a rock on the floor thru all cycles, including the super-fast spinning.I never mind spending money on well-built things. To me, the Cabrio feels solid and well-built. Compared to other washers that I checked, I feel I got an outstanding value. It's a solid, technically advanced washer that does a great job for a decent price. I bought the matching Cabrio dryer. I'm very happy and I would recommend these machines to anyone. After writing this, I almost wish it were wash day! Good luck!

This washer always leaves white soap residue on my dark clothes...Service has been out and say that nothing is wrong. Customer Support tell me to try different settings...Deep water, Mixed, Extra Rinse, HE detergent (Tide) and don't put too many clothes in, don't put over the center and bunch them rather than laying flat. Even after all that they still have residue and have to be washed again with no laundry detergent. Very unhappy!

good washer, very quite. I like it.
from Brinkley, AL
So far so good. We have used this machine a little less than a month. Laundry spins real well. Drying time is much less. Holds king sized bedding easily.
I bought this machine 2 months ago to replace another brand that continually filled up to balance the load. We like the controls and find it really simple. However, it is noisy - very very noisy- in the agitation cycle. Honestly, we like the machine BUT WHY IS IT SO NOISY!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Adjusting to something new
from Auburn WA
I bought this a month ago and I am an unhappy that I cannot hear the bell when the washing cycle is complete. I forget about it and then the clothes are tangled in the machine too long. I also wish that I could adjust the spin cycle as it leaves them either too wet or too dry.
Love this washer!

It was finally time to replace our 15+ year old washer and dryer. My, a lot has changed over the years! So many options out there! I went with a brand name that we trusted and that had features that were important to us. I was concerned about all of the washers being "high efficiency" as I make my own laundry soap and wasn't sure how that would work. Once I figured out how to make homemade liquid laundry soap that would have minimal suds, it works just perfectly! It was also an adjustment to get used to the small amount of water that is used to help with efficiency. I can appreciate that feature...but honestly, I use the "Deep Water" feature and the "Extra Rinse" feature for many loads...which is more what I am accustomed to. This washer is HUGE on the inside! I'm glad I'm tall...not sure if a smaller person could get clothes out of the bottom or not (I'm not trying to be funny...just stating a fact). I can fit so much more in this washer than I could with our older washer. I love how quiet it is as well! The only negative is that the top is slanted instead of flat. When we have large parties at the house, we completely empty the kitchen counter (toaster, blender, etc.) and have always placed those items on the washer and dryer in the utility room. We found out pretty quick that it wasn't a good idea...items eventually slid right off. I sure wish they would have thought through that better. I have no idea what the purpose of the slanted lid is! It's even hard to put a laundry basket on it...it will eventually slide right off. But I've found ways to make it work for us because it really is a great washer that does a great job on our clothes.
Love the features.

I bought this washer to replace a recalled Samsung washer. Have had it for a month and so far I am very pleased with the performance.
Must buy for any family!
By Lady Chi
from Kennesaw, GA
Great for any family that does a lot of laundry. I bought mainly so that I can wash my thick queen-size mattress pad and comforter. My daughter bought one a few years ago; so I was always taking them there to wash.
Easy to operate
