does it have a soap and fabric softener despenser

Asked by: Sallen
The dispensers are right under the lid, to the rear of the machine. You simply pull out the dispenser drawer and fill. Then push shut. The dispenser stays very clean, and I like it much better than the one on the Cabrio I replaced. It's an excellent washer. I've owned two.

Does this machine allow you to add additional water to a load (Deep fill)?

Does this machine allow you to add additional water to a load (Deep fill)?
Asked by: CLindsay
It has the option but it isn't "deep" like you're probably thinking. Not like an old school washer.

Cabrio 5.3 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer with Steam in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 2326.
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 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy it, if you did, return it. I use the washer and dryer daily for my family's clothes and bedding, very common household of 4 use. The clothes are nearly never clean. If they go in barely dirty, they come out even worse with detergent remnants on them. I use high efficiency detergent, so very little required and marks still remain on clothes. The whites are dingy, any real stains have to be pre-scrubbed, pre-treated and rinsed multiple times with this machine. Today was the final straw. I put some jeans in the washer after a trip and they came out still folded with detergent on the outer edges. Our very old machines in the house we are selling are far better so we are going to put this set of brand-new appliances there because they are useless but also unable to be returned because we thought we'd "give them a fighting chance" and our 30-day return limit ran out. The dryer works well but unfortunately is wearing out our clothes very quickly. New clothes look worn out after only a few trips through the washer/dryer. My mom warned me but I didn't listen, I hope you won't make the same mistake. Bad system. Buy something else.

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 5 out of 5 by from We have had our new washer for about 1 week, so far very pleased. Delivery and placement by Home... We have had our new washer for about 1 week, so far very pleased. Delivery and placement by Home Depot was very professional and helpful. Installation was straight forward. We upgraded to the stainless steel water hoses, and took extra time to make sure the machine was perfectly balanced (based on advice from previous users). The results, very nice. The machine has performed flawlessly. Would highly recommend. We had 2005 vintage Whirlpool Gold units, and they feel like Black and White TV compared to a 4K Flat Panel in illustration. We are hopeful also to experience energy savings with our new washer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money I have had this washing machine for over a month now. It is a waste of money! It leaves residue from the detergent (I have used pods, powder, liquid) on all the clothes. It has ruined so many of my items I can't wait to get rid of this thing!!! I wish I had my LG back

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.]
