              I was in the audience of the Ellen show on March 3rd and we all received a Whirlpool washer and dryer. The dryer is great. To those of you experiencing a lot of noise, I would recommend that it NOT be on an overflow pan.They don't mention this anywhere. When I used the deep water cycle the basket dipped and ate into the plastic of the overflow pan. Whirlpool replaced the motor and it seems to be working fine. I am , however, afraid to use the deep water cycle. For the most part, it is a little noisy, but not as bad as it was. I have no idea how long it will last, but my last dryer (not washer) was a Whirlpool. I sold that and after 23 years there are still no problems with it. I'm confused about recommending this and wish the next category below gave me the option of "I don't know yet."

                    Love this washer! It fits so many clothes at once and does an excellent job. We will never have to use that disgusting, stinky, moldy front-loader washer again.

                                We purchased the washer and dryer about 3 weeks ago. I am very happy with the deep water mode and so far how the clothes are nice and clean when I remove them from the washer. The dryers works well and my clothes are not near as wrinkled as my old one. Very Happy so far. I enjoy doing laundry and am very fussy about my laundry.

                                      I've always owned Whirlpool products and have NEVER had a single issue with any of them. So, when we looked to replace (upgrade to all stainless) our suite of 6 existing Whirlpool appliances (washer / driver / dishwasher / range / microwave / fridge), the obvious choice was Whirlpool for us. We have not been disappointed. This washer (and matching dryer) is very functional, looks great, has all the modern "cool" features, and we LOVE he soft-touch controls!! In the end, works like a charm (which is most important). We do not miss any features from our old model, and this one has everything we could ask for. One comment - the washer is very deep, so short people will need either a small stool, or my wife uses a spaghetti fork to reach the small items in the bottom. A+ for Whirlpool once again!

                                                  We bought a new condo with the Cabrio Washer and Dryer. Washing clothes is disastrous. The clothes get so tightly wrapped around each other that the soap never gets out even after repeated rinses. It is suppose to save money but instead has cost us more. Sales guy said to double rinse and add vinegar to the fabric softner. WHAT??? I have tried selling them but no one wants to buy them because of the poor reviews. SAD!!

                                                        I bought this about a month ago and I'm loving it! I like how it has many different options of cycles and I love that it's touch screen and has an add garment option. I like the compartment where I put in the detergent as well. The washer tub holds soo many clothes! I like that there's no agitator too. I can't wait to get the matching dryer! Favorite part of it is that it's red!

                                                              I have had this washer for less than 24 hours and I hate it. It does not get clothes clean at all. The 9 year old washer that this unit replaced did a better job at getting clothes clean. My husbands socks came out dirty. I also purchased the matching dryer, and it seems to work okay, but it arrived with a scratch in the paint. I have contacted the store where I purchased this set for a full refund. Another Whirlpool product will never come in this house again.
