Whirlpool® Cabrio® Platinum 4.5 cu. ft. HE Top Load Washer with EasyView™ Framed Glass Lid is rated 4.5082 out of 5 by 122.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too little water in wash, no water level control, clothes tangled, not clean. I bought this washer two months ago and I am extremely disappointed by the inability to control the water level in the wash cycle. Yes, this is a high efficiency washer but surely the customer is entitled to control the amount of water used in their wash? My clothes always come out off the washer extremely tangled and ground up, and poorly washed - an inch or two of water in the tub just can't do a decent wash. Further the wash takes about 1 hour. I had a conventional Whirlpool washer for about 15 years, and it washed everything, never failed, and all in about 25 minutes per load. I was very happy with that old Whirlpool, but not happy with the new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whirlpool washer & Dryer We had a previous washer/dryer and wanted to replace it with something similar. The controls on the new units are way less complicated and one feature we were not aware of was the less water used! We have tile in the laundry room and our old and new units slide across the floor however we found feet made by whirlpool and they reduced the noise and keep the units from sliding. There was very little noise to begin with. The cloths with less water are cleaner and the washer handles larger loads and it automatically adjusts the water lever based on load. We are really surprised and pleased with these units

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new Whirlpool Cabrio I have had this six weeks and am so very happy with it. I did a lot of research prior to buying it and the overall ratings for it were impressive. I have always bought Whirlpool washer and dryers and so that was my first choice in brands. While wash cycles may take a little longer than my old machine, the high efficiency usage of water, etc., is worth the extra time. Love the fact there is no agitator, which means clothes, towels, etc., don't get tangled up on it. After initial review of instructions, no problems using programming system. Control of spin cycle makes all the difference in the world in terms of no wrinkles. I made an excellent decision!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice washer! We've had our washer for about 4 months and it's been great! It's quiet, spins things hard and overall does a good job getting things clean. I have two small things to point out that might be helpful to someone...first, it is very deep. My kids can't help put stuff in the dryer because they can't reach in that deep...I feel like I'm crawling in to get that last sock sometimes. And often, things get really twisted and tangled, which in turn makes a lot of wrinkles if you weren't going to put those items in the dryer. But overall, we're happy happy happy :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from OVER SOLD AND UNDER PERFORMED I have owned several Whirlpool products in the past and never had an issue until now. This product is simply poorly designed and a poor performer. I have read and followed the instruction manual to no avail. I have a large family and the washer has been used many times over the last six months and my wife agrees - it simply doesn't work. The clothes will not rotate (we used to call it agitate) in the drum, and those on top tend to stay on top. Pants and sheets usually become twisted and knotted together. There is simply no way sheets can be clean if they are come out like a wad of Twizzlers tied in knots. Stay away from the top loaders. We will be going back to a front loading machine as soon as possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement washer This replaced our 8 year old front-loading GE washer which smoked one day after attempting to wash a couple of small bathroom rugs. Top-loaders make more sense for centrifugal balancing anyway. You gotta love the new style low profile agitators versus the old type that tore up delicates. We tested the capacity with our king comforter on the second load and were pleased to see we won't have to take it to the dry cleaners any longer. The only reason I gave it 4 stars on Ease of Use was due to the fact that my wife has some difficulty reaching all the way down to the bottom of the tub, but that is a price we pay for the capacity! Otherwise, it is very intuitive to use. Glass top is novel, but being smoked doesn't really allow you to see much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great washer with weird flaw We upgraded from an older top loading washer and I am very happy with the increased efficiency and load size. This washer spins your clothes so they are practically dry with less water which saves on our water bill and electric (from drying.) My one complaint is about a weird flaw (and I hope this gets fixed in future models) is the lock that keeps the lid shut. For whatever reason, they manufactured this washer with a plastic lock that ended up breaking within a few months of ownership instead of spending a few more bucks for a metal lock. Without the lock engaged, the washer will not operate and the repairman said it's not so simple for a homeowner to replace themselves either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and easy to use. Not too many settings to ignore but plenty to get the wash done. Great product. After researching and going to all appliance stores and shopping around, decided on thiis one. My girlfriend actually likes doing laundry now! Very happy with this washer. After talking to many people before buying, i did not want a front load washer although that is what I initially set off to buy. Very pleased with this machine. Gets the job done and looks nice doing it.
