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!

Beats frontloading machine!!
from Orange County CA
Bought it last month to replace a horrible 1.5 year old LG front loading machine. Already love it so much more. Easy to use and cleans way better. Done recites said it was loud but ours is in the garage and I haven't noticed it, so it's no issue
This washer is awesome, holds a lot of clothes
from Jacksonville, fl
Very happy with how it works, very quiet
I love my washer
from Buffalo, ny
This washer is excellent at cleaning large heavy loads to small and delicate. I have 3 teenage children who play hockey and I am able to wash all of their equipment including shoulder pads and pants! I couldn't be happier.
A Welcome Addition
from Lawrenceburg IN
I have only had this washer for a few weeks but have seen enough to know it is great. I have washed every throw rug and comforter in the house and they all came out great. Large capacity makes doing large items like a comforter an easy task.
Love my new washing machine. Great featureu
Had my machine for a month. Have done many loads. Very happy with the results. Great features
Simple to use
from Florissant, MO
I bought this a few months back and overall I'm very pleased. The only problem I have encountered is when washing bedding. It doesn't drain all the way and the water continuously runs at the same time so I have to pause the washer, move the blankets around ,close the lid and resume the cycle.
from Ontario CA
Love this washer and the buttons respond quickly I just wish the QuickStart instructions were different, so if you get this washer once you pick how and what you want washed you hold the start button for like 3 seconds then just wait it will say add garment by the time, now is your chance to add anything if you for got and then leave it. The. It will show locked lid and it will start on its own, and this washed spins so good the close are practically dry once we put them in the dryer!
Great washer, for the most part
from Grand Rapids, MI
It gets our clothes cleaner and softer than any other washer I've used. It's idiot proof and simple to operate. The noise issue people have been saying isn't as severe as people say. I've never had an unbalanced load, like others claim. The issue I have is if you don't use the highest setting for the spin, the clothes come out wet. Like, wet enough that they're dripping and you could ring water out of them Other than that, I love it.
