    As happy as can be!

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.5 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

    Love our new washer - our previous (Whirlpool), top-loading with agitator washing machine lasted 7 years before the transmission was on its last legs. Our Whirlpool dryer was fine, so we decided to go with Whirlpool for our next washer purchase (so both appliances are the same brand if we ever need repair service for one or both) and we couldn't be happier! I researched all Whirlpool high efficiency, top-loading washers (didn't want the funky smell from front-loading doors) and their online customer reviews and this particular model seemed to garner the most favorable experiences without costing an arm and a leg. Bought online without ever visiting a store to view in-person and the only slight issue we had when the machine was delivered is that it was slightly bigger than our previous machine and I didn't check the height clearance with the door open to make sure it fit under our cabinets above it. Fortunately, the lid clears just perfectly but even if it didn't, the lid stays put no matter how high you lift it - doesn't slam like the older models - nice feature! Overall, very pleased! P.S. No issue with excessive noise, which some reviewers noted. Maybe it's because we had a dinosaur model, but all we hear when the machine is running is whirring and "thinking" (in computer terms).

    Great Washer

    We replaced our old Whirlpool washer of 23 years with this one. We are very happy with our choice and don't know why we waited so long. No more running in the laundry room because the load is off balance.

    We like it

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.5 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

    So far, we are very pleased with our new washing machine. We wanted large capacity and controls that are not too complicated. This washer met both requirements. It takes much less time to complete a load than our former front loader, a real bonus we only hoped for. Because of the very large capacity, we were surprised when we found that neither of us are tall enough to reach the bottom of the tub easily, but we can work around this. No big problem.

    Cleans excellent and is quite!

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.5 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

    I bought the Cabrio Platinum 4.5 cu. ft. HE Top Load Washer last month after reviewing several other washer. What swayed me to buying the Cabrio was the low price, no cheap plastic drawer for detergent/softener, top load stainless drum, and quality build. I previously had the Maytag Neptune side load which had issues with mildew smell due and gasket mold. The Cabrio Platinum has exceeded my expectations!

    So far so good

    Bought this a couple weeks ago when old washer with agitator finally bit the dust. Got this one because a family member has had it for couple years with no complaints. This one is quiet and the clothes do come out a little more dry. Happy for now, but the true test will be how long do these new appliances last?

    This machine is such a disappointment. It sounds like a jet plane taking off. It is very noisy.

    Great Spacious Washer w/ lots of features

    By Jihoonie

    from New York, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.5 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

    The 4.5 cubic foot drum is spacious enough for large loads. One of my favorite features is the ability to adjust spin speed depending on what I'm washing. This is my first high efficiency washer, which gets the clothes noticeably cleaner than the washer I used in my rental (which was also a whirlpool, but a cheaper non-HE model). I wondered if I would need the various wash options that come with this mid-level washer, but after one month I'm glad that I spent more for this machine. The washer also shows you the length of the wash cycle as you adjust your options. The other thing I like about this is that it's a Top loader, so that I can interrupt the cycle if I need to throw a few more items in. The front loaders are a lot more difficult to do this. If you're looking for a mid-level, relatively affordable, feature packed washer that does a top notch job of cleaning your clothes, you won't be disappointed with this machine.

    Finally, we made a good choice

    By Beanhead

    from Southern Indiana

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.5 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

    After struggling with a pair of very expensive He front loaders, we ditched the washer, which would run for another half hour when down to one minute on the cycle and purchased the Whirlpool top loader last month. What a relief!! Wash times are cut in half and clothes look and feel great. Capacity has not been compromised and water usage is equal or less. This top loader is a winner, so far!
