    Anytime the wife is all smiles while doing my laundry, it's a great day!! She loves the capacity and all the features plus you can hardly hear it running. Great for small and large load's. She's happy and that makes me happy.

    We put our washer to use beyond the norm and the Cabrio seems to be up to the task. Quiet, with easy to use controls. The estimated wash time is a nice feature too.

    My husband has been trying to get me to let him buy me a new washer and dryer for a few years now, and I kept telling him ours were fine. Well, last month our dryer decided to give out. We went to go get a new one, and decided to buy a set rather than take a chance on how long the washer would last. I am so glad we did! I love this washer! I don't have to let things pile up until there is enough for a load, and I can wash our blankets and comforters myself. It is so quiet and there is absolutely no vibration when it is running. If the lid wasn't see through, you wouldn't be able to tell it was even going. I've never been happier with an appliance.

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

    We bought the Whirlpool Cabrio top loading washer a few months ago.. it is beyond our expectations. Doesn't even SOUND like a washer... but has a zillion settings for any washing need, uses small amt of liquid detergent, is QUIET, and is easy on the water usage. Is so great at spinning out the clothes after rinse cycle that our drying time is just minimal.

    My first HE--still a Top load

    By Backstop

    from Undisclosed

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

    I bought this washer about a month ago, to replace a 20yr old conventional washer. I don't do as many as three loads a week, except for the first week I bought it. I haven't used it enough to know if it cleans better than my old one. I bought the clear lid and I must say I have been watching what it does. It appears to be more gentle on the clothes, certainly it uses less water. But given that the cycle takes more than twice as long, I suspect electric usage isn't improved. Given the high speed, the spinning drum has some work to do to balance the load. It makes me think of how much potential there is for repairs. But I haven't had any yet.
