Customer Reviews

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 2030.
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 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 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer I have had this a couple of weeks and I really like this washer. I like it a lot better than my old Kenmore. It is quieter, cleans better, and holds more. The placement of the detergent/softener dispenser is perfect and also removable for easy cleaning. ( Although the way it works, I may never have to clean it!) Spin speeds are better than my old Kenmore too. The steam cleaning function is a really handy feature. And I really like the "Shadow Chrome" color on the outside. My only issue: It is a little deep - I am 5'9" and I can just reach the bottom of the inside so it will be tough for a shorter person to get all the laundry out. I wish the washtub was wider and shorter for easier access.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pretreat, wash, repeat... I have had the cabrio for about 6 months and have been frustrated with the lack of cleaning it does for my laundry. I have to wash my husband's work jeans and shirts at least 3 times before they appear clean and that is with pretreatments. I do not recommend this appliance to the working class people who actually get into real dirt...

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 Large capacity and excellent washer I purchased this washer about 2 months ago. I have now decreased my laundry time to 2 loads a week from my previous 4-5. Upon first wash it cleaned clothes better than my previous washer and in less time. Love the Active Spray requires less water to be wasted and love that it has steam clean. Bought this with matching Dryer and would definitely recommend the combination. I should also mention it is super quiet, close the laundry door and don't even notice it's running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes my life easier! I bought almost a month ago. I previously had a set of Kenmore that were at least 15+ years old (preowned). I was initially intimidated by all the technology/ options/ digital aspects - but the quick guide is great and if I had questions it's been very easy to quickly reference guide for directions/ suggestions. I'm so enjoying the large capacity - I fit a queen set of sheets and waterproof mattress pad in the same load with room to spare! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
