    Nothing good to say about it.

    By Jerris

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

    I purchased the Cabrio about four years ago; I was told it was the best. It is the worst waching machine I have ever had. Does not clean the clothes properly, clothing gets twisted together; off balance all the time. I can not leave the house when it is running. This morning it tore up sheets, they were not new but fine when I put them into wash; blankets or bedspreads are almost impossible to wash. I really have nothing good to say about the washing machine.

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

    There seems to be no way to wash clothes on cold/cold temp to keep from fading. Cleans well, but I would not recommend this washer!

    Excellent washer

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

    I've owned this washer for a month, and it is working great. I've read other reviewers' complaints, and I haven't experienced any of those. Yes, using this kind of washer is different from the older agitator style (which is what I had for 15 years), and it takes some time to get used to. Follow the instructions! So far I've washed everything except my giant sleeping bag. Sheets, whites, delicates, the kids' soccer uniforms, jeans, comforters, bedspreads, this washer has handled them all. Yes, it uses way less water than you'd expect. This washer does make unusual sounds. The items will come out wrinkled in a completely different way than if I'd used the old agitator washer. But my overall point is, this machine works great.

    Purchased the Cabrio washer and dryer last month and it's great!! Does a great job of cleaning the clothes and uses much less water than my old machine and can handle large loads. The dryer handles large loads as well and is fast drying. A bit more expensive but worth it!

    Good purchase

    By CarrieKr

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

    I love having a top loader and also not having the agitator. The only downfall is that sometimes our daughter's food covered clothes (she is one) don't come clean as easily as they did with a agitator washer. I love the dryer. It is quick and effective. Both are pretty quiet machines.

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

    I bought this a month ago and it is fantastic! Uses less water and energy. I love all of the features that it has especially the timer for when I am in a hurry I know how much longer it has until I can throw it in the dryer.It is also pretty quiet I almost forget that I am doing laundry. I would recommend this washer to everyone.
