Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 297 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I beam with joy every time I do laundry! I purchased my top load cabrio set Dec 27th 2012, as a after Christmas gift for myself. I did a little research and read a number of reviews. And, based on what I read, the cabrio was the way to go. I am tall for a female, 5'9" so I didn't want anything too low. This set is sort of tall. The front load style didn't appease me because the pedestals are additional, and that style was too large for my laundry area. My laundry area is upstairs off the loft area behind double doors. I live in a townhouse. I decided to go with the platinum set because I absolutely love that look.... If you read your manual for how to select the appropriate settings to wash, trust me, you will adjust just fine to this high efficiency way of washing (less water). I have the clear top lid so I can see in. This washer is brilliant, it adjusts the water level appropriately and cleans the clothes very good. The dryer is absolutely the best as well. Both make completion indicator noises. Get this set, you will pat yourself on the back afterwards! February 9, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by I wasted my money on this machine. I purchased this machine late last summer after reading good reviews in Consumer Reports and am very disappointed with its performance. It may save on water, but it cannot be thrifty on electricity because each load takes much longer (one hour minimum) than any previous washing machine I have owned. The clothes I wash in the machine are not cleaner which confirms what I already knew--you cannot wash clothes without water. I have to dilute the detergent before putting it in the machine or the clothes will be speckled with it. If I pre-bleach an item such as a dishrag, wring it out by hand, then put it in the machine with other similar items such as towels, those other items will have bleach spots on them when the load is finished due to lack of water in the machine. I now hand wash many items because the machine is too rough on them, but when I try to spin them dry using the cycle labeled drain and spin, it puts more water on the clothes and takes much longer to spin them than should be required.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Regret purchasing this machine I have been using this machine for 6 months, and I am disappointed with it's performance. The only thing that is high efficient about this washer is the amount of water, or lack thereof, that it uses. The cycles on this machine have a running time that are 2 to 3 times longer than a standard washer, so the machine definately uses more electricity. Out of 16 cycles available, I am only using 1 (the Bulky Items cycle) because the water level in this cycle is enough to allow the laundry to move freely without twisting into a mess. It took me several minutes to untwist a king size flat sheet so it could be put into the dryer. The machine is beautiful to look at and has every feature you could wish for except the ability to set the water level you desire. If Whirlpool would design/manufacture a component to install on this washer to allow water level adjustment then, for me, this would be a 5 Star appliance without a doubt. July 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by This washer is very efficient We purchased this washer when our 28 year old washer finally died. In one of the first loads I di were some heavy sleep socks which I wear around the house rather slippers. Needlessly to say that after a lot of wear in the house as wel on the decks the socks never looked very clean after laundrying them. When I removed them from my new washer they looked like new!! I love the light so I can see if I have removed everything. The capacity, the ease of selecting temperature, additives, and other options are all great--that machine is smarter than I am!!Love my new washer! December 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything I wanted and more. I have only had this washer for about 2 weeks, but felt compelled to add my review. I researched washers for several months because my Whirlpool washer of 20 plus years was starting to show it's age. So as you might guess this is quite a change. I read so much conflicting information but decided to stick with whirlpool . I am very happy! I went with the topload because I read too much about the smell issue with front loaders and didn't like the idea of having to bend to load and unload. I can't believe how fast the spin cycles are but the machine has not unbalanced at all. I love and use all the dispensers. I'm still trying out all the cycles. I love the light and yes I have actually watched a whole cycle to see how it works. I read the directions and have found it quite easy to use. Loading the clothes around the tub isn't hard at all and doesn't take much time. I would recommend buying the extended warranty because as with all new technology there is alot that could go wrong and possibly be quite expensive, Plus it gives you piece of mind. I use the machine most every day and plan to review again down the line as that was one thing I had problems finding enough reviews of people who had owned the machine for some time. October 17, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very satisfied customer I had been researching for months before deciding on this washer. I was in no rush since my 25 year old washer was still working. But it had started making new noises and I figured it was only going to be a matter of time before it gives up the ghost. I can tell you so far that I have been happy with this new washer. I was a little worried about the new HE washers in general after reading and hearing different complaints. But I can say I have not experienced the issues a lot of people may go on about. The washer cleaned my white and colored clothes very well. Keep in mind that you will need to read the manual and follow the directions. You just can’t toss the clothes in it any old way. It has a very large capacity, but don’t over load it. No washer will wash well over loaded. The wash cycles may be a little longer than the older washers. However the timer shows the estimated time left until it is finished. Yes, there are some cycle settings with selected options that may take an hour or so. You must use HE type detergents for this washer. However make sure to use the amounts the HE detergent recommends for a load. Plus this washer will make different sounds compared to the older washers. But I didn’t find it loud in my opinion. And last if you are coming from the old school washer, you must select the options if you use the bleach and/or fabric softener dispenser(s). For an endnote, I have not experienced any major tangling or major wrinkling. But I must note that I often use a medium or low spin speed since I read it helps control wrinkling issues. Plus you may want to use the extra rinse option depending on the brand of detergent you use. A sensitive nose may pick up a low detergent scent depending on the brand you use. But the extra rinse option seems to take care of that if it is an issue for you. Overall, I am very happy with this washer. January 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best washer ever owned! This washer works very well and is very quiet. It is different than an agitator washer so it must be loaded differently. If you read the easy instructions before loading you will never have an issue and of course use the HE soap. I even use the HE Tide Pods and throw it in on top of the clothes and it works fine. The washer sets the water level and has an automatic temp setting that you can change if you want to. The low water efficiently is not a problem and my towels and clothes are cleaner with this washer than my old one. The spin cycle is awesome and my towels/clothes will practically be dry before i put them in the dryer. There is a towel setting which i have never seen on a washer before and it works great. The lid is glass and there is a light you can turn on inside the machine if you want to watch its progress. I have two young kids and a husband and this washer works great for my laundry needs. I have not used to for a queen comforter yet but I seems like it would fit because it is a large washer. I have only had it for a day so I do not know if my energy bill will be lower but I believe it will make a difference. May 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Machine! Excellent buy! This machine is all I wanted, plus. Clothes are much cleaner and brighter than with my old machine April 5, 2014
