Fool me once, shame on you
from Columbus, Georgia
Comments about Whirlpool 4.6 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:
My 4-year old Whirlpool Cabrio, which was an expensive purchase, is going into the junk pile (along with a lot of other Cabrio's with the same issue) due to the bearings going bad. I have taken good care of this machine, used only HE detergents, followed the manufacturers's instruction on appropriate usage and for what? I guess it's doing me a favor since it has never been very good at cleaning as most loads. I have had to run most loads as heavily soiled with an extra rinse (so much for energy savings). Not happy and I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER one. Since manufacturer's know that they make inferior products (just look at their lack of warranty and how they will stall, stall, stall when it comes time to repair) I will either buy the cheapest model since I have to replace them very often, or I will go to a manufacturer that backs up their products (more money, of course). I will be looking into a Speed Queen - there must be a reason why they are utilized in laundromats. Go figure. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Horriable! A piece of junk
I bought this machine 3 years ago, paid extra platnium, and thought I was getting a better machine. The bearings are shot and now I'm looking at a $500 repair. Not what I was expecting from a 3 year old Whirlpool
My clothes are still dirty

Bought this machine about 3 years ago. This machine does not use enough water to get clothes even close to clean and there is no option to even use more water. Very disappointed with this machine. So sorry we purchased it.
One year warranty

After 18 months the "transmission" started to leak oil.Repair cost is nearly as much as a new one.Not that I will buy a Whirlpool again.By definition.. Whirlpools suck..
Worst Machine I have ever owned
By Annie C
from Poughkeepsie, NY
Have owned this for over 2 years. Since day 1 it becomes unbalanced anytime I fill it more than halfway. I called several times in the beginning and was told to add less items and make sure they didn't go anywhere near the center of the machine. I did this. So now I can only wash half loads or it gets unbalanced. When I wash blankets and I mean only 1 at a time and not large ones, It gets unbalanced on the spin and sometimes takes up to 5 hours to complete the wash as I have to constantly go and take the blanket pout and remove it from the center only to have it go off balance less than a minute later. I even have rinsed out some loads of wash by hand in frustration. I wish I never got rid of my GE Profile and repaired it. At this point in time I would take a basic machine over this one any day of the week. And as I'm writing this the machine is going off balance. Garbage. And they never made good on it. Shame on Whirlpool

I am really not happy with this washer. It doesn't have the center agitator. Everything gets twisted up. I have to stand and untwist everything, especially if it's pant legs or long sleeves. I cannot adjust the water level or the rinse tempurature. My husband is in drywall and requires a lot of water to rinse out the drywall mud. Rinse is always cold. You cannot choose. I live in a cold climate and our ground water is ICE cold. I have always washed my plastic shower curtains and reused them many times. There is not enough water to cover it and doesn't get it all clean. My shower curtain was in pieces. Imagine what it is doing to your clothes. Then it rinses in ICE cold water that makes the plastic brittle and cracks. It was a mess in my washer after attempting it. Too much auto decisions and leaves you without options for certain situations. I can put a lot of clothes in it, that is for sure. But they won't come out clean with the water saving feature. YUCK!
from San Antonio , Texas
Very pleased with this machine. Amazingly, Clothes are cleaner with less less water. Load clothes, soap, softener and select proper setting is super easy to use. It hard to believe a machine this quiet from wash thru spin cycle does such a superb job. The capacity is out of this world. The tub is so deep I have to use a stool to reach the bottom. Whirlpool has once again made an awesome machine. Only suggestion I can think of is that they include a step stool or a Reacher with each machine. Thank you for making such an outstanding product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bad Bearings after 3 years
from Grosse Pointe Michigan
The washing machine has been fine for 3 years but started groaning during it's spin cycle. It sounds like the bearings have gone bad. I have found many videos on the internet (and parts) to fix an repair the washer. It seems kind of strange that a 3 year washer has it's bearings failing. That would be a poor design
Not real happy
from Chaska mn.
I am sorry for my purchase. It's one of those energy savings models, I knew nothing about when I purchased it. Too me it seems the clothes do not get clean. I'm sure they are all bad, but after checking reviews I found this model had been discontinued. Dumb me, should have checked before I handed over all those bucks.
from lake of the ozarks
