Rated 1 out of 5 by 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! August 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great washer Energy efficient and quiet. Love my laundry time. Extra large capacity makes it easy to wash king size comforter! January 8, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by NOT A GOOD MACHINE FOR THE MONEY I have owned this machine for about 2 years now and am looking at replacing the 3rd glass lid. it cracks on the sides and the first one hit my husband on the head. We had to hold the lid open in order to get the clothes out. It takes way too long to wash; you cannot set the machine to wash like you want, it has its own way of washing and you cannot over ride it; the second rinse cycle does not give you adequate water; the only cycle that gives you enough water to wash your clothes is the Bulky Cycle; the delicate cycle is a joke, it swishes, not washes. Now the lid is so warped that the lock becomes disengaged and the washer stops working. I call it the Spin and Sprinkle Washer because that is what it does that takes so long. My money went down the drain with this washer. I would never buy it again. If I had viewed a demonstration to see how this machine works, I never would have bought it.The saleswoman at the store that I bought it said that she does not recommend this washer either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleased so far So far I am pleased with this machine's performance. I like having the remaining time and energy use level indicated. The high speed spin means I don't need to run the dryer too long. I haven't seen an electric bill yet but I'm hoping for energy savings. The only thing that has slightly bothered me is that after choosing my settings each time it goes back to default settings (such as the fabric softener dispenser setting goes back to "off" although I want it "on" with every load). It's a minor inconvenience but something you couldn't know until you purchase and use the machine. The tub is quite deep so a short person will have difficulty reaching the bottom. I have to stretch and I'm 5'6". I replaced a 14 year old front loader and couldn't find a new one to fit in the depth I have but I'm pleased that the new top loaders use less water and are high efficiency. I like that the lid unlocks last machine took several minutes to unlock which was a pain when I wanted to add an extra item. March 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellant I would highly recommend this prduct. We almost didn't get this because of other comments we read somewhere else. We would have probably gotten something else and not be happy. We LOVE this washer. We also got the dryer. LOVE THEM both. I have never had a problem with unbalanced clothes. It only takes a little time to make sure the clothes are evenly displayed in the drum. I always did this automatically in my old washer so this isn't any different. We bought this back in Jan. or Feb. so I have been using them for quite some time. Would not give them up. They have saved us in electric and water bills. Consumption of both have gone down since buying the washer and dryer. Now that I have used them, I am a little upset about some people making negative comments without waiting until they have had them a while. We almost didn't buy these because of them. I am very glad that we didn't go by those comments but went with what we thought was best. It was the best decision that we could make. GET THESE!!!!!! September 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!". January 19, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by WARNING!!! DISAPPOINTMENT DO NOT BUIY i searched for a great washer to replace an older whirlpool that performed wonderfully. I read the reviews on this washer and thought it would be great. Big disappointment. My husbands shirts do not come clean. After washing and rinsing twice you can still smell the deodorant and the shirt doesn't feel clean. There is no presoak or soaking for your items. In addition, my clothes are being mangled, tangled up and losing their shape. This washer is a poor choice of Whirlpool. If I could get rid of it I would. Definitely not worth the $700+ in purchase. It may be Energy Efficient, but having to wash my clothes more than once and having to replace items because they are getting destroyed in the wash does not make this a good buy. March 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. January 23, 2012
