I purchased the Cabrio about a month ago and am very happy with its performance. The capacity is amazing and my king comforter has never been cleaner!

Still evaluating

By Caecus

Comments about Whirlpool 5.3 CuFt Cabrio Top Load Washer:

I did a load with two jeans and two sweatshirts. I used just the presets for this load. After the initial wet down I looked down through the clear lid and saw one of the labels from one of the jeans plastered (by water of course) up against the side of the tub. During the wash action of the paddle on the bottom, that label never moved. There was not enough water in the tub. The machine is supposed to figure out the correct ratio of water to clothes. The water that was initially added for the rinse cycle also was not enough to move the label. It was not until the spin cycle started that the label came down. Now I just let the machine know that all my clothes are heavily soiled and the machine does the rest. I was able to tell that the machine is more gentle on the clothes than the old agitator machine. The spin cycle is excellent, but the installers did not use a level to level the wash machine and I think it is off by an eighth of a bubble so the basket moves quite a bit ,but the machine itself does not move. I haven't used the steam cycle.

Loads of features

By Slyhere

Comments about Whirlpool 5.3 CuFt Cabrio Top Load Washer:

After one month of use what strikes me most is how quite it is. Huge load capacity, We wash our king size comforter in it. The steam clean for the whites works great. The only reason I'm giving it a four is the length of time per load, it takes about 1 hour on average per load. A lot longer than my last washer.

Large Loads - NO Problem

By Karen Mom of 3

from Indiana

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 5.3 CuFt Cabrio Top Load Washer:

I have a family of 5 at home. We all wear adult sized clothing. I can't believe how much clothes this washer fits. What was an extra large load with my old washer is now a medium sized load in this washer. It also cleans great. No soap or softener residue left behind. My clothes feel softer.

Love this washer!

By Norma G

Comments about Whirlpool 5.3 CuFt Cabrio Top Load Washer:

Bought this a month ago to replace a front loader. The machine is quiet and efficient. It cleans beautifully. Only downsides are the tub is extremely deep which could be a problem if you can't reach the bottom of it and the beep signalling the end of the cycle is not very loud. All else is fantastic.

Comments about Whirlpool 5.3 CuFt Cabrio Top Load Washer:

Really like that I can put quilts and comforters into this oversized washer. It is beautiful! It is a bit loud when it is running but I just close the door. I do wish the alert bell was louder though. This is my second set as we sold the first set with our last house.
