Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 97 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by We love it! My mother bought us this set as a late wedding gift. We just had a baby in September and the dryer we had took forever to completely dry the loads...especially towels! We would forget about the laundry being in the dryer all of the time because we had to constantly re-dry them!! Also-with a new baby we had a lot more laundry to keep up with so we were very thankful for our new gift! We love our new washer & dryer!! It has been such a huge help and time saver...who knew doing laundry fun ;) January 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loved it so much, I bought it twice! Now, to qualify my statement, I have bought this washer (and dryer, combo) twice only because I sold my first house and the new buyers wrote the appliances into the contract. So I moved into my new house and bought the newer versions of this Cabrio pair and had them installed immediately. We are a family of two adults and two small children. Like most people, I don't have a ton of time to do laundry. I can save all my laundry up for the week and get it done in about four loads on a Saturday afternoon. It fits our king size comforter. It fits a ton of towels. It has all the settings you could want and need. I love being able to pause it and throw in some laundry that I forgot or fell out on the way to the laundry room. I love that it senses and adjusts for my load size. It looks nice and sleek, too. Upon starting it can be a little bit noisy, but otherwise it's fairly quiet. I never want to move again, but if I had to I would either bring this set with me or buy it all over again. January 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is very quiet and has great features I wanted to help with water conservation and wanted a much quieter washing machine. I can barely hear this machine when it is on. The 4.8 cubic inch tub lets me wash less loads while using much less water and my clothes are very clean. My old washer, a Maytag, after 4 years started breaking down on a every 6 month basis. It was loud and took much longer to wash my laundry. After the last breakdown my husband and I decided to find a more reliable machine. My husband used to repair washing machines when he was younger and had always had a preference for Whirpool machines as he thought they were much more reliable and built much better than any other machine on the market. We looked specifically at the Whipool machines and decided to spend a little more to obtain this model because of the water and energy savings. He was certain I would like the washer and the machine would last much longer than the Maytag we were replacing. We have had the machine for over a month and he was wrong I don't like it, I love it! Although it has only be a little over a month I believe my husband was correct and this machine willl last us many years with very little trouble. April 12, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by This product was a fail on cleaning I'm not happy with the washer. My clothes do not look as bright and the whites are dull. I don't think this washing machine cleans as well as they advertise, not enough water or enough jogging/washing of the clothes. The dryer I love!! February 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 New style of washing, but good... Once I got the hang of how to work with the machine, I found it works very well. They say in the manual that the soap actually works in cleaning the clothes with these "low water usage," machines. But you also have to separate your clothes, not only by lights/darks, but by the weight of the fabric. For example, when I wash jeans, only jeans or material comparable to denim, will be washed together. Believe me, this machine can handle up to 4 pairs of adult male jeans at once. Then I can put the whole cycle on "durable fabric," and let the machine treat everything in the tub on an even scale. The machine also spins everything so well, similar to an extractor in the laundromat, that it has significantly cut down on drying time. I like that I just choose the "type," of cycle for the type of wash and the machine does the rest. One of the options is to have a beep sound when the wash is done. I never had with previous machines because you could hear when the machine finished. This machine is so quiet, I actually chose to have it beep when it finished. I chose the machine over a front loader for the size of the tub, and I do love how much I can fit in this tub. I think it cleans the clothes very well. Also, it's one of the few top loader HE machines that will wash waterproof items. A big selling point for me with 2 toddlers. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Washing Machine I bought a different washing machine originally, one that ranked higher on consumer reports (the second highest spot). It was the worst washing machine I have ever encountered. My clothes were coming out worse than they went in. By the time I was able to buy this machine to replace horrible one that I'd bought only months prior, I was paranoid about laundry. So, I checked every piece of clothing on every load for a month with this machine. My clothes have never been cleaner, the machine works perfectly. My whites are whiter, and my colors brighter. In short, it may be pricey, but it is completely worth it. Some companies are great at making TVs, some companies are great at making Washing Machines. So, if you're going to buy a washing machine, buy it from Whirlpool. April 1, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Older is Better Besides using less water, I see no advantages to the High Efficiency machine. The cleaning performance is inferior. The abuse on the clothes is greater. Be sure you don't have any loose threads. Because if you do, the way the clothes become entangled it can cause even more problems. I really want to like this machine but can't. I really would like to have a traditional washer back in my home. January 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it We had a whirlpool for over 22 years and it was great. We decided to replace with another. WOW!!!!!!!!!!! could hardly believe the difference, Were not expecting to be so beautiful and so much more load capacity. Cleans like a dream and so easy to use.Was suspicious of tub design but now i REALLY like it. If you are in the market---this IS IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! April 16, 2014
