I have one of these and its just not working, one shirt on deep water comes out dry in spots and the rest of the shirt is smudged. Other loads come out wet. Read lots of other reviewers say they had a service call or two or three and this problem could not be fixed. What if anything can be done, other than buy a new washer?

Cabrio 5.3 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer with Steam in Chrome Shadow, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 2149.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely horrible! After 6 months, I can can't handle it anymore. We have had nothing but issue... Absolutely horrible! After 6 months, I can can't handle it anymore. We have had nothing but issues with this washer. The darks constantly have white stuff on them. They look as if they have powder detergent stuck on them, yet we have only used liquid HE detergent. We have a everyday white cotton chevron blanket that we use between our sheet and comforter. Any time we wash it, only by its self mind you, the washer can't handle it. It will start to spin, then stops and just spins slowly and pours water over it. It will stay like that indefinitely, or until you power off the washer, and let it drain. Then you have to hit just the spin cycle and hope that it gets more water out. If not, you're left with a 40lb blanket!That happens every time, no matter how level you try to make the blanket inside the washer. My old standard washer had zero issues washing that blanket. The other issue we have is, it will just get stuck in rinse. That can happen with any load of laundry, even a small load of dedicates. It's especially frustrating when you start a load and leave the house, only to come home 6 hours later and it's still slowly spinning and pouring water. I'm adding some photos of the white spots all over 3 pairs of my wife's black pants. Yes we have a dog, and yes, you will see some white hair, but the white hair has nothing to do with the spots. This has been happening since we got it. At first I dismissed it, I just thought my wife was washing them wrong (I do the laundry). I then started looking more closely when I was doing the laundry and it happens to me too. I'm also calling Whirlpool and having someone come out. I'm really disappointed in the performance of it. We paid too much money for this to be happening.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cabrio washer and dryer are worthless My top loader washer is two months old. I am experiencing the same problems that many others have document - lint and soap residue on dark clothes that can not be removed without re-washing. Clothes are twisted into knots that simply don't come out. The grinding noise is terrible. And the front load dryer is worthless. Tonight I have been drying a medium sized load -- 3 bath towels, 3 hand towels, 3 washcloths and 4 dish towels -- and two hours later the towels are still damp. What is my recourse? I want to return both.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse washer I have ever purchased I have had this washer now for about 8 or 9 months. It is suppose to be energy efficient, but that is farther from the truth. It does not wash or rinse all the soap or softener out of the clothes. I have to use it on deep water setting and always use extra rinse. Even doing this when i take my clothes out there are streaks of soap or softener on them. I will be filing a complaint on the government web site regarding is unit. I'm using twice as much water. Therefore my water bill is much higher. You falsely advertise this as a energy efficient unit. There's no way!!! You can't even do a short wash on the unit. I truly regret this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy I previously had a front load machine (different make) and was so disappointed with its spin cycle that when it broke I decided to buy a top load machine. What a difference!!! It washes beautifully, spins without a hitch, and I'm very happy with it. One thing all should know, the drum is large, so large I have a little bit of trouble reaching small items on the bottom. No complaints at all. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I purchased this washer/dryer set with same great expectations of the other products I had in the past from Whirlpool. While the washer does wash great, the glass lid assembly has been a continuous problem. The plastic frame around the glass cracks in the same place over and over. Allowing the glass to pop up and after a awhile is so out of whack that the lid wont lock therefore disabling the washer. I have replaced this lid twice and they cost around $200.00. I will not replace it again and will not buy another whirlpool washer. It is also very noisy and sounds like a jet plane when washing.

No matter what type of detergent I use, there are always white marks on all of our black pants. I have to spend as much time trying to get the marks off as it did to go through the washing cycle. Also when washing sheets, it makes a loud banging noise when it it going thru the spin cycle. I would not buy this product again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Have to wash every load twice. We bought this washer 4 days. We were so excited for a better washer than our previous one. BOY were we disappointed. We washed the first load according to the instructions in the manual and it didn't even wash off the deodorant. The load was not too big, not even half full. Have to wash every load twice to get them clean. Might be enough water if the clothes would move around and if the design of the incoming water would pour at a radius(from the center out), not just pour into the center of the drum. But there's not enough agitation even if it would get enough water. It would be a great washer for 2 or 3 items of clothing but we have a big family and it just won't work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer I've only had the washer a little over a month. I like the extra features. There is a slightly steep learning curve but I am getting the hang of it. I enjoy doing laundry with the new machine. It is quiet and efficient. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
