Whirlpool® Cabrio® Platinum 4.8 cu. ft. HE Top Load Washer with Greater Capacity is rated 4.6102 out of 5 by 626.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product My husband and I are thrilled with this product. I love the ease of operating the washer, it is so quiet, and the water use is so low, but yet my laundry is so clean. We have changed to HE detergent, and we don't use as much laundry product as before, and our laundry is so fresh and smells fantastic. Our whites have never been whiter, and all of our other laundry looks newer. We feel the savings on the water usage and the laundry products. We have actually sat and watched the washer run. We have never been happier with a major appliance purchase and look forward to buying the matching dryer soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I love my new Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum washer. It has a huge stainless steel drum with a low profile agitator which allows plenty of room to do mounds of laundry. The cool shiny grey color coordinates wonderfully with my other stainless steel appliances. My old washer had a traditional agitator which took up a lot of room and often meant I had to untangle clothes before I could put them into the dryer. It also left the clothes so wrinkled that sheets in particular looked like a car had driven over them. It's amazing how dry clothes are coming out of my new washer which cuts down on drying time and no wrinkles either. Simply amazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite an adjustment! I recently put a 45 year old Maytag out to pasture, still working though! I read a lot about the efficiency of the newer washers and evaluated quite a number of them. For the money, I felt this whirlpool offered the best options, features, and reveiws in this price range! I am not dissapointed one bit. This machine is quiet, efficient and does a great job 99% of the time. I have 2 teenage boys along with mysel that really put it to the test and it passes with flying colors. It has also decreased my water bill significantly, which is a bonus. I will say it takes a while to get use to seeing little to no water in the washer, and it can be difficult to judge the amount of soap for the amount of clothes!!! But trial and error have been working for us.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Design and Terrible Experience with Washer I have had this washer for 2 years and have not felt such frustration with any appliance in my more than 50 years. Obviously, the designer of this washing machine doesn't have much experience doing laundry. This washer has such a poor design that clothes are capable of escaping from the washer basket to become entangled around the shaft below the clothes basket. The manual warns that this may occur and seems to amazingly happen easily. Machine has a faulty product design whereby such a nuisance can occur so easily without the owner's ability to troubleshoot and resolve independent of costly service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first HE--still a Top load I bought this washer about a month ago, to replace a 20yr old conventional washer. I don't do as many as three loads a week, except for the first week I bought it. I haven't used it enough to know if it cleans better than my old one. I bought the clear lid and I must say I have been watching what it does. It appears to be more gentle on the clothes, certainly it uses less water. But given that the cycle takes more than twice as long, I suspect electric usage isn't improved. Given the high speed, the spinning drum has some work to do to balance the load. It makes me think of how much potential there is for repairs. But I haven't had any yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it so much I had to buy the Dryer!!!! After 20 years or so my washing machine gave up the ghost. After shopping around and doing my research, Whirlpool stood out as being my best investment. I love the top load and was excited when I found this model. The machine does what it says and then some. My husband came into the laundry room and stood there and said "You know how I hate to spend money but we have to purchase the matching dryer to make this look right". Thank you! Thank you! You did what I could not do. I could not ask for the matching dryer but you made such a superior product that it is almost a shame to just have one. Thank you very much.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great so far Hopefully this new one lasts longer than our previous Cabrio. Guess I am old but I remember my parents washer and dryer seemingly lasting forever. Not so today. Our 7 year old Cabrio lost it's "bearings" and motor and it was less expensive to buy a new one then repair the old one. Various sources highly rated this new Cabrio and the deal was good so we are rolling the dice. Not a huge fan of the dark control panel the lighter one was easier to read, otherwise it works great, the capacity is terrific so now it becomes a test of longevity and with just two adults in the household how many loads will we will get?
