Part # W10135699
Affresh™ Washer Cleaner removes and prevents odor-causing residue that can occur in all brands of HE washers. While bleach only kills odor-causing bacteria leaving behind the detergent residue, Affresh™ Washer Cleaner uses surfactant chemistry to remove the root problem. Affresh™ cleaner is a formulated, slow-dissolve, foaming tablet that gets under residue, breaks it up, and washes it away leaving the washer smelling fresh and clean.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 147 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Washer cleans very well. Admittedly, it is taking some adjustment to get used to this new style of washer. I''m worried the plastic top will scratch over time and there's no flat place to set a cup or detergent while filling. I have never had a high efficiency washer before so I am still trying to figure out the best settings for each load, but through trial and error, and the instructions, I'm learning. Also, I'm adjusting to not filling the washer like I used to and letting laundry sit or soak until I'm ready to finish the load though it does have a soaking cycle. I don't often add clothes after starting a load because I have to unlock load. It takes a little longer to wash than my previous washer and though not loud, it is not as quiet as my previous, old style, washer. It is quite interesting how it washes with so much less water. Price was not a factor since I purchased it on sale. Amazingly, it does an excellent job of cleaning each load very well! I am sure it will be a money saver on water. I am very pleased with the cleaning performance! December 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A fantastic product! This washer is one of my best purchases ever! I went from a 15+ year old washer to this dream appliance. It is a smart machine--I tell it what type of load (i.e., normal, delicate, tough, etc.) I am washing, and it does the rest. No need for me to guess at the size load, as it automatically weighs the load and knows the appropriate water level, water temp, and the time required to complete the job while being eco friendly. It even tells me when the clothes are finished by sounding a melodic signal. One thing I would recommend is a repeating signal in case I miss it the first time. The clothes are spun so dry that, in tandem with the matching dryer, the drying time is much less than with my old set. Just a little perk is the glass top so I can see the clothes progressing through all the cycles. I also appreciate knowing the amount of time left on the wash cycle until my beautifully clean clothes are ready to dry! One important factor in my choice of this product is that it came highly recommended by appliance repairmen as being very reliable. March 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love the washer and the dryer. I have the above mentioned washer and dryer at our weekend home. I purchased a larger capacity one 10/11/13 (Whirlpool TL HE WTW8540BWO) for our main home and liked it so much. I wanted the same thing down at our weekend home at the coast, but could use a smaller one for the smaller space. There seems to be less lint on the clothing than there was using my old washer (Maytag). This I discovered when I put some darker colored items in a couple of times to save doing another small wash. Another thing, I love knowing how many minutes remain which I can see at a distance, while I am doing other things and making other plans. I am impressed, I hope it holds up well in the years to come. I am enjoying both of them. April 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A super washing machine. We love our new Cabrio top load washer! The clothes come out much cleaner than our old machine. At first we weren't sure if we'd like all the bells and whistles, but we've come to appreciate them. Our old machine only had two dials and was very simple to operate, but this machine is just as easy to use. The only downside is that it is makes more noise than the old unit, but after watching it operate it's understandable because of the high speed the basket spins. The clothes come out dryer and therefore need less time in the clothes dryer which saves a little on the electricity. I also like the glass top which lets you see how the wash is progressing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cleans well, but noisy This is my first Whirlpool washer and it is doing a wonderful job at cleaning my laundry. I also love the fact that it uses a low water level and that it is energy efficient. My only regret is the noise level. Unfortunately my laundry room is located off of my kitchen in my mud room. This washer can be quite noisy and if laundry is going while we are eating in the kitchen it is quite loud. I suppose if the laundry room was in the basement, it would not be an issue. Also, I need to place a service call with Whirlpool because the Oxi Clean dispenser has not worked since the machines first use, however I am hopeful that it is only a minor adjustment and we will be okay. I would recommend this machine to anyone looking for an excellent cleaning washer at a reasonable price. :) March 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Over all a great washing machine! I have had my Whirlpool Cabrio for two months and love it! I previously had a front loader which I never liked. When a bearing went out, I went searching for top loader. This machine has all the options I need. I particularly like the deep wash cycle and the fact that you can stop a cycle after the cycle starts and it will unlock so that you can add a forgotten piece of laundry. It does a good job cleaning. The sounds it makes are different but I quickly got accustomed to hearing them. April 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product does the job and does it right! If you are looking for an affordable smart machine this is the washer you should look at. I was blown away how quite it was during cycle and even during spin it was fine! Our laundry room is close to our kitchen so noise was a factor, it passed. The features on the machine are all you need and probably more than you will use but still fun to have. No agitator was key, less rough on the clothes and it feels like you can fit more in the drum. I love this machine, especially the cool noise it makes when you turn it on, trivial yes but still cool! April 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 Product has many features The many features making learning curve somewhat difficult in my opinion. As this unit is a dramatic right-turn from top-loaders on the past learning the washing types and various features associated to achieve the desired results has been hit-n-miss. After having unit for nearly a month I getting much more knowledgable on choosing best setup for load types. April 19, 2014
