Whirlpool® Cabrio® Platinum 4.8 cu. ft. HE Top Load Washer with Sanitary Cycle is rated 4.6266 out of 5 by 391.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Carries The Load I purchased this washer to be able to handle my over-sized king sized comforters. It does a beautiful job on them. Because it is so big inside I can load it up when I am doing regular wash also. It saves on water and electric for me. The different settings are perfect for the laundry that I do. Ex: towels, sheets, bulky, normal etc. I love the deep clean feature also because it gets the smell out of things! You can not go wrong with this one. Make sure to read the directions on how to load it. Many people do not load it right and say that it doesn't work. It's not the washer's fault it is OE...operator error. I love my new washer and you will too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best washer I have ever used Having used front loaders, top loaders, laundromats with high speed centrifuges, and everything in between, I can honestly say this is the best washer I have ever used. Yes it takes longer to wash but it doesn't damage clothes and it makes them very clean. It handles small loads and bulky washes without a hint of trouble. If your water is hard (San Diego's is) you will have to descale regularly but that is the water's fault, not the washers. The sanitize features and the improvements from other washers from this line are worth the added price. Only complaint is no obvious filter to clean and sometimes debris stays in the drum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washer The washer is quiet and does a good job cleaning my washables. It was a little intimidating at first with all of the cycle selections, but I am confident selecting them now, without referring to the manual. You do have to remember to select the fabric softener button, and the tub is a little deep for someone only 5 ft. tall, but it is not a big problem. The washing cycles take longer than on my old washer, but the drying time is much less, so it doesn't seem to take as long to do a load of clothes. Also, I can wash a much larger load than before, so I'm washing fewer loads. Overall, I'm very pleased with it and have no complaints.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good technology I have had this washer for several months and it works very well. The only thing that disappointed me was that the "steam" option isn't 100% steam. The clothes are washed in water and then they are heated to produce a steam-like environment in the basin. This normally wouldn't be a complaint, but I asked several people in the store what the "steam" option meant and they assured me it was for steaming the clothes. I researched online as well and no additional information was provided about the option that I could find. I made my purchase hoping that it would be pure steam, but I guess not. Everything else about the washer works very well so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washer with many useful features. We have owned the washer for about 3 months now and have not had any problems. We have not used every feature yet, but with the amount of laundry we do, it won't be long. On the first day we bought the pair, we watched an entire cycle of laundry, as the washer has a clear lid. It was fascinating to see everything in action. Since we have only owned the pair for a month, I am not sure how well the energy savings are, but we can tell that the new washer uses much less water than the previous (late 80's early 90's) washer we had before and our clothes come out just as clean if not cleaner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
