Customer Questions & Answers

what kind of detergent does it take

Asked by: wishiknew
any detergent with the 'HE' label on the package will do
Answered by: willow

Why do my sheets get dirty black spots on them when I wash them?

It looks like they have been splashed with mud. If you scratch across the spot it will come up but leave a light brown stain.
Asked by: Lucy
Try using Afresh washer cleaner or you may need to wipe the tub ring on the top. Sometimes dirt builds up on this rubber like surface and can transfer to the next loads.

Should this model have a tub light? Manual says it should light when door is opened or when cycle signal button is held down. But there's no light.

Cabrio Platinum 4.8 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer in Chrome Shadow, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1034.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from White Residue I have had this washer for 4 years and I'm as disappointed and frustrated with this washer today as I was the week I bought it. My brother and best friend bought the same set and they experience the same white residue , post wash as I do. The manufacturer acts like I'm the first person that has complained about the white residue but blog and blog is validating my frustration. With each load I use a limited amount of soap, set it for extra rinse and set it on the lowest spin cycle. I'm finally going to get rid of the washer and purchase the Maytag 4.2 cu. ft. cross over with deep water wash option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features I brought the washer around 4 weeks ago & it's working to my expectations. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE This washing machine has given us nothing but problems. We have had to change the hoses every 3 months because they corrode so badly. The washing machine before never had any problems in 7 years. Our laundry room and basement have flooded TWICE causing quite a disaster (hoses corrode off). The spots where you would put bleach or fabric softener are always full with stagnant water and it never goes away- I have tried. To put the cherry on top, there are now two burn marks on the washing machine and our walls. This machine is not safe, it never gets our clothes clean- they are barely dirty, and I would never, ever recommend this machine to anyone!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish it would wash my clothes Seriously I wish it would just wash my clothes. Every time I have had to use my machine it can never complete even just one complete cycle of washing. I have had the repair man out several times and each time he says it is just a touchy machine. Seriously !!!!!!!! It is stuck on a loop of constant wash, I hate this machine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money well spent We purchased the Cabrio Washer/Dryer set in late 2016. So far, we are beyond happy with the purchase. The load capacity is unbelievable and the settings accommodate everything we could possibly need. Our time spent doing laundry has been reduced by at least 30%.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killing it in the laundry department! Just killing it and wife still hasn't figured it out yet. The washer capacity is such that I pick up our double bin hamper and just add soap hit the mix clothes button and walk away. I just have to make sure it's folded so she doesn't catch on! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome capacity and great design! I bought our Cabrio set a month ago and I'm so in love. It's sleek with its touch screen, but I'm more impressed by how well it washed our clothes and the size of each load. Such a time saver! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best set ever! I had another model of the whirlpool Cabrio then moved and had to leave them with that house. My husband bought me the newer models of the cabrio! I love both sets! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
