              Love the HUGE wash tub. We are able to wash a ton of laundry in one load versus small multiple loads with our 15 year old Maytag Performa. Clothes come out clean and fresh. You just need to understand how to properly layer load, and how much detergent to use. But after a few loads you get the hang of it. Its not super quiet, but never goes off balance. The clothes practically come out dry, which means less time in the matching dryer!

                    Very large capacity is great, but the agitation cycle seems to be very noisy. Also for a short person it is very hard to reach the clothes at the bottom. I have to use a step stool. I bought the set because of the great looks.

                                I purchased two months ago. I didn't even realize that my clothes weren't getting cleaned with my other washer until I used this washer. Excellent!

                                      After reading many reviews, I purchased the Whirlpool Cabrio washer and dryer set. It does makes some strange noises at the beginning of the cycle, but not as loud as some had described. The amount of clothes you can wash at one time and they come out clean is amazing. I have had to remind myself that I can wash large loads and add more clothes. All types of clothes come out clean and fresh, from denim, towels and delicates. Would highlyl recommend!!

                                                  Life without an agitator is amazing! We have king bedding that looks new after one wash because it has room to move it and detergent around. Very quiet during wash cycle. Just can't say how much I love it.

                                                        I purchased the washer/dryer combo a few weeks ago and love it! I opted for the larger washer and it works great!

                                                              My 2 yr old Cabrio needed a $880 repair so I just upgraded to this washer during a 4th of July sale. It cleans very well and I like the steam option for very soiled items. The higher capacity makes up for the longer cycle times. The beginning of most cycles is a little louder than my previous model when it was new, but the noise level is still acceptable with my laundry room door closed. My laundry room is right across the hall from our kitchen, so we are usually very close to its location when it's running. I have enjoyed the detergent and oxi dispenser trays and the oxi option works very well on soured dish towels. One small feature that I really like is that the digital display shows a bright "DONE" message after a load is finished until the lid is opened. So, any time you walk by, it is a noticeable visual reminder that you have load that needs to be put in the dryer. Overall, I would definitely recommend, but with my experience with my last one, definitely get the longest extended warranty available (repairs on these high tech appliances can be extremely expensive).
