Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 122 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love the Many Features Initially, I did not care for the machine because I didn't feel it got clothes as clean as the older agitation type. I really like having some of the features that come on the newer machine. It has a large capacity and I had to figure out the cycles that would get the clothes cleaner than I had originally thought and I do use more non-chlorine bleach than in the past. However, the first water bill I received after installing the new machines left no doubt that I was using less water! Have had many compliments on the appearance and capacity of the machines!!!!!!!! Overall, pleased so far! Hopefully, the Whirlpool durability is continued in the new line! April 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Above expectations! First of all, I bought this washer because of the platinum color and overall looks. We moved our washer/dryer upstairs to first floor by removing a two person jacuzzi out of master bath which we never used and replacing it with this item as well as the matching dryer. We not only got a beautiful bath but also high efficiency products. We also researched Whirlpool and liked what we read. November 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased This washer cleans better than any other machine I have owned. It will probably do even better once I get softened water. It has a lot of control options that become a bit challenging for my kids and husband but I don't find it hard to use. I would like it a bit quieter but clean clothes is more important to me. I love having a top load machine, it's so much easier to get clothes in and out of it. I had a front load machine prior to this and the ergonomics of the front load machines isn't to my liking. I really like the lit drum, it makes it so easy to see what is in the drum. It does a tremendous job spinning the clothes; my dry time is really shortened. Overall, I really like the machine and have recommended it to friends. I have owned it for a few months. Just a little advice, do not put the detergent measuring cup in the load. The spin cycle is so strong it messes the plastic cup up. Also, load according to the instructions, it is a bit different than expected. November 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great washing machine! We had originally bought the LG pair (the ones that were supposedly rated No #1 on Consumer Reports) and after 3 weeks of trying we returned them. Could not get past the constant "unbalanced load" problem with almost every load, no matter what we did. The wash just didn't come out as clean as our old Fisher Paykel got it either. When we went back to Home Depot to pick out another set, we found the Whirlpool Cabrio set. Not only were they on sale but were "built in the USA". We were sold even though they were a bit more than the LG set. So glad we got the Cabrio set. These are great machines! No unbalanced problem! Clothes come out clean! HUGE capacity! Bottom line....they just do what they are supposed to do...get our clothes clean without a lot of fuss from us! There are a ton of options and features so read the manual and make sure you use the correct settings. You won't regret your purchase of these. Highly recommended!!! January 7, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very Very Very disappointed My last Whirlpool washer(top loader) was purchased back in 1998 and it worked well . It lasted 15 years. I recently decided to purchase this washer with the excitement of having a new experience when doing laundry. But no kidding, the only thing is great about this washer is its appearance. I have only had it for two days and it's not worth the box it was packaged in. I plan to contact whirlpool and see what I can do different for the washer and dryer to meet their full potential. Also, the stream cycle is worthless. My slightly soiled button down shirts didn't even come clean after washing. I have read the instructional manual and followed all guidelines and specifications. I have also used the HE detergent, the oxi cleaning solution and good ol' fashion clorox. and no the washer is not overloaded. I only had 8 youth size shirts in the wash and they didn't come clean. If my results change then I will repost. For the amount of money we have paid, I expected a better product. December 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fell in love with first use. I needed a washer and dryer set and the local appliance store only had The Cabrio 8900 in stock for immediate delivery. I bought it with a bit of trepidation because of the lack of reviews. I have to say: I LOVE THIS MACHINE. Performance has been great from the first load: make sure your read the manual from the get go so you know how to load and set it. Dispensing technology is awesome- no residue on clothing. Spin speed rocks- super fast dry time. The settings allow you to choose preset values BUT the Cabrio 8900 gives the user control to change things if necessary. Adding the oxy setting makes it easy to use Oxy Clean with every load. The big test for me came in the form of a king size flannel duvet cover that my dogs use as a bed. It has always smelled a bit funky- even after washing. One trip through The Cabrio 8900 and the smell is gone. It is so clean I could take it and put it on my bed again. I have only had the Cabrio 8900 suite a weekend, but I cannot imagine it any better. As long as it has decent longevity this set is near perfect. October 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this washer!! Quite, innovative machine that does a great job. I have had the set for about two months and absolutely love it. I am so lad I went with the top loader versus the front loader. I did a LOT of research of both styles and because I have pets, I decided to go with the HE top loader instead. I think I have made the right decision! ONLY negative I can state so far is the spot for the detergent. I purchased the pods and it did not dissolve rapidly enough and instead, clogged the opening and water overflowed onto my floor. I just don't use the designated spot for the pod any longer. I just throw it directly in the machine basin. Not a big deal but poor design that hopefully they fix on the enxt generation. April 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far this has been a great machine. One month ago we replaced our 32 year old GE washer with this machine. It's easy to use and does a good job of cleaning the clothes. I do refer to the manual frequently, especially the cycle quide, because this machine is very different from the one we purchased in 1982. I've washed quilts using the Bulky Items cycle and they've come out fine; I did rub some of the little bit of detergent allowed for each wash on the very dirty spots on the quilt as well as a tiny bit of spot remover. I have not yet used the bleach or fabric softner dispensers. The washer is much quieter than my previous machine and sounds kind of like a jet engne. We did purchase Lowes extended warranty.
