    Soap Stays in Clothes

    By Dryer22

    from ohio

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

    The soap (no matter what type I use) stays in the clothes. There is always lint all over the clothes after they are washed. The washer does not wet all the clothes or move the clothes around - they just sit in the washer without even washing them.

    Worst machine I've ever owned - in 25 years!!

    By Anonymous

    from Grand Rapids, MI, United States

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

    I bought a Cabrio washer and dryer a little over a year ago and am SO disappointed and frustrated! Like many of the other reviews, it does not clean the clothes well, leaves detergent on the items (and yes, I did read the manual, and DO use High Efficiency detergent, and I DO load the clothes evenly, etc), and ties up the jeans and slacks into knots. They come out so incredibly wrinkled and no matter how much you try to shake/smooth them out, the dryer then bakes them in, even with the 'wrinkle shield' button on (seriously? you have to push a button every time if you want the best wrinkle response from a dryer??). I have 3 sons who all play multiple sports, and their uniforms are always dirty and stinky. My previous Whirlpool machine cleaned them very well with just pretreating (and, no, it also did not have an agitator). This one does not clean stains at all. I have to pretreat and soak them in a sink first, and then dump them into the washer, since there is no 'soak' option (I was told by the dealer that it was no longer necessary)! In 25 years of owning or using various washing machines, I've never had such poor performance. I was talked in to buying this machine by the dealer, when we really went in to buy a dryer, as our 20 year old dryer had just died. I SO regret that decision. I want my old one back, but I gave it to a friend's daughter, and she loves it!! I'm shocked by any positive reviews for this machine. Maybe Whirlpool has fixed some of the problems with the Cabrio in the last year, but they should stand behind the serious issues they put on the market with this model!!!

    Faster Dryer

    By leannmshields

    from Lexington, KY, United States

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

    This dryer is definitely faster than my previous one, due to the increased capacity. I am disappointed in the steam feature, however. I was thinking I would never have to iron again! But, that is very much not the case. My items are still as wrinkled as they would be in any dryer, even after the 22 minute steam cycle. Disappointed...

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

    This washer is so easy to use. Just touch the wash selection, mixed, casuals, whites, delicates, or bulky/sheets. Then touch the wash selection, normal, quick, cold, deep water, or colorfast; and the washer does the rest. It easily washes a king size comforter. This product is great.

    Great capacity!

    By 1happygirl

    from Indiana, United States

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

    I bought this hoping that it would be a great addition for our family. I LOVE the capacity this washer has!!! I get my laundry done in much less time now and fewer loads. The touch screen takes a bit of getting use to using, but the washer itself is quiet and cleans well. I love it as much as I did my last Cabrio. My only complaint is that no matter how level it is the tray for the softener holds water in it after the load is complete. Other than that, I have no complaints! Thank you Whirlpool for such a great washer for our size of family! Laundry is not so dreadful anymore!

    Leaves detergent residue on clothes

    By bwitch16

    from Annapolis, MD, United States

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

    We've had our washer for a year now and every time we wash dark clothes in cold or cool cycle, there are some sort of detergent or softener residue left on the clothes. Even after choosing "extra rinse" we still have to run the clothes through an extra rinse cycle to get the stains off. This does not sound like an efficient washer.... and yes, we do use High-efficiency detergents, as required.
