The WORST washer I have ever owned. Clothes come out covered with lint and soap film requiring 1 or 2 extra rinses to get them clean.

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.6 CuFt Cabrio Top Load Washer:

    This is the WORST washer I have ever owned. Even using the minimum recommended amount of "he" liquid soap, with no softener or other additives, and trying every cycle available on the machine, dark clothes still come out covered with lint and a sticky white film. Then you have to run them through one or two "extra rinses" to get it off. We have cleaned the washer following the operation manual instructions and still get this result. I owned a Maytag washer for 22 years, it gave me clean clothes every time right up until it finally broke. I bought this Whirlpool 2 months ago and have not gotten any clean clothes since on a regular cycle, I have to run every load through 1 or 2 extra rinse cycles. This is a terrible product, don't buy it.

        Very easy to use, love the large capacity and it really saves on water. I have to get used to pushing a button to release the fabric softener otherwise I would recommend it. Love it.

            So much more quiet than my last washer! It's huge and the clothes come out clean! This washer spins so fast that the clothes are practically half dry by the time it's done! I'm super happy with this washer, i plastered videos and pics and other posts all over my fb wall! HAHA! You need a washer? Get this one!

                I love how I can fit my entire bedding in this machine to wash, it is huge. There are so many options on this machine to wash the many types of clothing I have in my wardrobe. This machine is really quiet.

                    Pleased with our new washer! Not particularly happy with time it takes to wash a load of clothes. It is a high efficiency washer so I can only trust that it's doing the right thing!

                        This machine has cut down the amount of times I need to do laundry.You use so much less detergent and fabric softener.I bought the machine in January and we are still using the same bottle of detergent.I would have probably used 3 new detergent bottles with the old machine.As for quiet,you could hardly hear it anywhere in the house.Its a great machine and now I know I made a great choice.

                              Very disappointed in the performance of this washer, follow all instructions to the letter and clothes still not clean at end of cycle. I had a whirlpool washer from the 1980's that had an agitator and it never failed to get all laundry clean. It's sad that dirty jeans are still dirty after they have been laundered in this Cabrio washer, very disappointed.

                                I thought with all the controls it would be hard to figure out but all you have to do is turn the knob and it automatically sets everything unless you want to change a specific setting. Very quite and very eco friendly.

                                    I have no regrets on purchasing this washer. Everyone waits until their washer dies to buy a new one......this one will make your life so much easier. It holds larger loads, cleans wonderfully, is quiet and a pleasure to use.
