Customer Questions & Answers

what kind of detergent does it take

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

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.

Customer Reviews

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 Overpriced disappointment This is the worst washing machine I have ever owned. Clothes come out of washer with soap stains all over them no matter how little detergent you add. Also they are so tangled and intertwined they are not even clean. I have tried using the extra rinse to the cycle (which makes the total washing time over an hour) and even that doesn't always work. It's not like this was an economy priced appliance either.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought about 2 years ago and it is making a VERY loud noise Not happy with the way it cleans our cloths, also about a mouth ago it started making the loudest noise in the spin cycle...sounds like it is going to blow up. I wonder if it has the same problem as the Samsung top loaders are having.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wouldn't buy again! About 18 months now and cloths come out still dirty, wrinkled and it constantly needs to be cleaned with washer cleaner. Loved my old top loader with agitator from whirlpool but this one is very disappointing!!

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 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 4 out of 5 by from Great color I got this about a month ago have enjoyed it so far however I'm not sure why that the tub is so deep I'm 5'4 and I can't reach the bottom of it not sure who this was designed for I feel I'm of average height. I tried using a stool but I still can't reach those last few prices. looked at others they seem to be the same. All the other features work well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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
