The best washer and dryer system I have ever owned

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

        I bought this washer/dryer combo in March 2015 and am so pleased with how it gets clothes clean. I have always had the standard model and was leery of purchasing the HE model as I have heard many complaints about them. However, I liked the features on the Cabrio WTW8500DC and made the decision to go with this set. It has many options to choose from. There is an option for presoak, oxy, steam clean, temperature, soil level, spin speed, extra rinse and a delay start. I can set the machine to clean by the fabric and degree of soil level and thereby reduce or increase the cycle time. This is a great feature for making your clothes last longer or getting rid of the dirt and stains. Since purchasing this washer I have never had to rewash an item. They always come clean! When you load your washer you do have to make sure that the items are loosely put into the machine. If you just throw your clothes in they will come out in a tangle. I made that mistake the first time but since then I've had no problems with tangled clothes. I also have noticed that not only are my clothes cleaner they are also dryer as the washer speed during spin cycles is very fast. My clothes not only come out very clean but the drying time is greatly reduced. I can also do very large loads and reduce the time I have to spend on doing the laundry. The dryer is great too. It also has many options to choose from so you can preserve your fabrics including static reduce, damp beep, wrinkle shield, temperature dryness and ecoboost. The auto sensors will adjust the drying time so your clothes don't get over dry. I especially like the sanitize cycle for my sheets and towels. The WTW8500DC is also very quite. My laundry system is in my kitchen and our whole house is tiled so it tends to resonate sounds. Even with both the washer and dryer running it is so much quieter than what I was used to. It also plays these little tunes when the cycle is done letting me know nicely that my laundry is finished. The many wash and dry cycles are what convinced me to purchase this system and I am very happy I did.

                    Very pleased with the machine's performance, capacity, and silence. Controls are easy to set, load capacity is large, and achieved great results with heavy items.

                          We purchased Model WTW8900bc0 approx. 18 months ago. Since then we have had approx 6 service calls. Soon after the purchase clothes were not rinsing. Black jeans always show soap marks. Small loads, extra rinses and correct soap do not solve the problem. Now we are finding holes in the clothes after washing. Service people say both are a complaint they hear often. Last service call the approved vendor was instructed to call the Tech Line which is only available to service people. The Tech Line claims it is due to overloading and continued to claim it even after the onsite service rep. told them we run half loads. Do an online search you will see many complaints on these two items. Neither Neither the store where we purchased nor the manufacure admit to a problem.

                                      Water level too low, doesn't clean as well as our old Maytag. Mama is not happy therefore the family is in turmoil. She chose it but regrets it today.

                                      The reasons are simple. Great cost (because I caught a deal on a holiday), very efficient cleaning, no noise, and holds a lot of clothing. I really enjoy this brand of whirlpool and will never use any other brand for my washer and dryer.

                                                  We bought this 3 weeks ago and am glad we did.
                                                  It performs very well on all cycles.
                                                  We have many loads of heavy soiled clothes and this machine handles them very well.

                                                        After purchasing 5 Whirlpool appliances at the same time, including the Cabrio washer & dryer and writin a review regarding the noise during the wash cycle, I was contacted by a very nice person from Whirlpool Corp. who basically stated that this noise is a common noise and there is nothing that can be done regarding this noise. I am very sorry that I purchased these appliances and would tell everyone else to avoid this brand. This washer makes more noise than our older agitator model did.
