4.6 cu. ft. Cabrio® Platinum Top Load Washer with Clean Care cycle is rated 4.3257 out of 5 by 304.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst washer ever This washer is not a long lasting washer. I had to have 3 service calls in the first year and on the last service the whole inside tub needed to be replaced because it was leaking and rusted. I was lucky because it was still under warranty! Unfortunately there is nothing special about this washer- I used to love that I could wash big loads because my family generates a lot of laundry but 3 years later, it unlevels with every load! So now I can't just throw clothes in and forget- I have to constantly readjust and start over. I can wash 2 towel per loadAlso, the lid screws are rusted off and the start button is broke- $200 to have repair guy come fix so we just ripped plastic piece off for free! Can't wait to buy new Maytag!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Washing Machine I bought this washer a year ago, and while I think it does a pretty decent job washing, there are some tricks I found out when I checked with the company . First, make sure all your items are around the plate and that center is left cleared - that is how the machine knows how much water to use. Second, if you don't think you are getting enough water, you can use the Bulky setting and then adjust the spin speed, etc. That will add more water to accommodate the load. Third, all the cycles will add bleach to your load if you want to wash some delicates but also want to add bleach. After I learned some of these tricks, it made doing laundry easier.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great, poor performance My mother-in-law and I sat there and watched the entire cycle-there is a nice drum light just for this purpose. This washer is sleek and looks very snazzy, but the functional design is ridiculous. The agitator only agitates items directly up against it and does not circulate the clothes efficiently. Some items get in the middle and get the dickens scrubbed out of them; others barely move, being stuck against the side of the drum. If this washer cleaned well I'd have no issues with it at all. I'd happily put up with the noise, which I do not find excessive. However, as is half the clothes come out almost knotted, the other half have merely been partially submerged (due to eco-effecient operations) in soapy water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love Love this washer! This is my first HE washer and I couldn't have made a better choice. There are alot of brands on the market and this one seemed the best option for us on paper. I can honestly say that not only did it live up to our expectations but it also exceeded them! What took our old washer to do 3 loads, took our new washer to do 1 load! So ultimately it saves time and money!!! I love the option to clean the washer which is reccomended every 30 washes. I love the see through glass and the slow close lids. I can't tell you how many times my 3 year old has shut his fingers in our old washer. It is amazingly quiet. It makes the most noise when the water is draining (probably due to our drain hookup#. Some cons, You must buy only HE detergent #as with all HE washers#, the drain pipe must be atleast 39 inches off the ground #we did not know this until trying to install the washer into our floor drain pipe), and it seems to take a little longer to wash a load of clothes than the old school washers took. The prices were all around comparable. Always remember the saying "You get what you pay for!".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed! Our very first HE washer and so far, we are not disappointed. I bought this on the recommendation of a good friend who was highly skeptical of HE washers and absolutely loves her Cabrio. After reading negative reviews, I decided to try it anyway. The most commonly repeated criticism is the perception that the washer is not getting clothing clean and is leaving detergent residue. After the second load, which had a couple of Navy blue items, we noticed some lighter markings on the clothes. Hmm, I wasn't sure so gave the clothes an additional rinse. They came out with even more "lighter areas". This is presumably what people interpret as incomplete rinsing. Not at all! The washer does such a good job with the spin cycle that some areas come out much drier than others giving this appearance. Once the clothes were hanging to dry, these marks went away completely with no residue! Perfectly cleaned. The big test will be to see how long we go with no repairs. We'll certainly do our best to take care of this big investment! It's a good-looking beast and didn't take up any more room than the old washer. Can't wait to try blankets, etc. It sounds like it will cost next to nothing energy-wise. Quiet, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My time spent doing laundry has been cut in half! I love doing laundry! The cycle selection makes it so easy to cut your time and expense doing the laundry! My water bill has dropped nearly 20%. I can wash twice as many clothes in one load compared to my old washer. Yes, my clothes come out clean. You do need to shake the clothes out before putting then in the dryer--the spin cycle pulls so much moisture out of the clothes it's like they've been in a vacuum! My only negative comment on this wonderful machine is that it is really tall! I have to tip toe to reach the bottom of the wash tub. I am only 5' 1"--so that probably won't matter to most people!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best dryer I've ever owned The Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum has saved my clothes, time and money. It doesn't "over-dry" my clothes. Just about every dryer I've ever owned has ruined my clothes by shrinking them. This dryer takes care of my clothes for me. The wrinkle shield let's me do other things... I don't have to stop doing what I am doing to run and fold my clothes the second the dryer finishes. My Cabrio hasn't had any affect on my electric bill. My husband is a Critical Care Paramedic and having the sanitizer on the dryer helps... I don't worry about his clothes being germy when he goes to work or when I hang them in the closet. keep up the good work Whirlpool!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love,Love my new dryer The main reason I bought this washer was because of its size to be able to wash my comforters. Also because it only puts in the amount of water it needs to. Because it has a clear lid I would stand and watch it go through it cycles. Now mind you I'm used to the tall adjietator and it full of water so it drove me crazy to see how little of water it put in and wonder how it would get my clothes clean. I don't know how it does it but it gets the clothes clean. Very satisfied. The spin cycle is crazy fast but super quiet and gets out all the water and saves on the drying time.. Love all the options for the cycles. Love my new washer and matching dryer.
