    So far, so very good

    By larryhdg

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - Chrome Shadow:

    If everything hold up this will turn out to be a very good purchase. Heard a few others who have owned one say the main agitation assembly goes out shortly after the mfg warranty expires. Hoping this doesn't happen to us. If it lasts 10+ years we'll be very happy and won't hesitate to buy whirlpool again.

    Great features but poor engineering

    By DP1762

    from Dallas, TX, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - Chrome Shadow:

    Features are very good but the unit has a serious design flaw. The bleach dispenser is situated directly above the door control springs. Any moisture or leakage from the bleach dispenser will cause the springs to deteriorate and fail. Very poor design.

    We've been using for about 6 weeks now..and truly believe the clothes come out cleaner, brighter than the 9 year old Whirlpool agitator model we used prior.

    Love this Machine!

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - Chrome Shadow:

    Day care where I work has an older model of this machine--works great. I decided if ours ever quit, this was going to be what I replaced it with. Like how it is pre-programmed for all the different types of laundry and the eco-boost is just the icing on the cake. I can save on water usage, and since it holds a large load of clothes, I don't have to do laundry so often, so I save on electricity. Clean clothes and saves money--what more can I ask for?

    Laundry Heaven

    By Mrs S

    from Upstate, NY

    Comments about Whirlpool 4.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - Chrome Shadow:

    In a statement that stands with no other...it's MADE IN AMERICA!!! If one could actually use the words "laundry" and "heaven" in the same sentence, most would say it's a first! However, I can attest to the fact that this Whirlpool Cabrio that sits side by side with the matching dryer, has actually put me in Laundry Heaven whenever the tast of cleaning clothes is mentioned. The inside is large enough to handle virtually anything this home can ask of it, as far as cleaning. The sound while running...oh wait, I can't hear a thing! The menu options for the type of laundry are soooo simplified, I could actually have my husband of college son handle it if I ever chose to be "Queen for a Day" and deligate this duty...but why, when it's so effortless! The compartments for laundry detergent, bleach, fabric softner and Oxi booster/additive are clearly labeled and all you need to remember is upon turning the machine on, simply let it know what "extras" you may have added such as the bleach, fabric softner or Oxi. You can choose the spin speed if you don't like the one pre-programmed for your laundry type. Make sure to always do those whites on the "whites" setting when using bleach because it gives you an extra rinse (so not to leave any bleach remains that could effect another load on non whites). You can also contribute to lessening your consumer footprint with the ability to change the water temp and see how energy savvy you've become :) If you're the type who may want to see (out of curiosity) what laundry getting washed looks like, simply look through the lid, it's pretty neat! Don't get alarmed that your laundry isn't drowning in water either, it's not necessary in order to clean everything. Our clothes are cleaner now than before and with my old machine I always though all looked good...was I mistaken there. In conclusion, there is a soft yet audible tone at the end of the cycle to let you know the 1st half of the fun is over.

    Great value

    I love the washer. It is quieter than my previous Whirlpool. Balances the load to avoid out of balance shaking.

    I love my washer! I didn't think the small amount of water could clean our clothes but they get cleaner with less water and less energy. You can't beat it. Again love it!
