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

    After a very disappointing experience with our LG washing machine, it was nice to find a washer that delivers what it promises: clean clothes with efficient cost!!! Quiet running and excellent price are two of the fine qualities of this machine. Thanks Whirlpool for manufacturing a GREAT product.

    Poor machine

    By Kaveri

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

    We have had this washer a couple of years, I agree that the water amounts are a issue, it does not get clothes clean, but a bigger issue I have had is that it ripped 2 Sets of sheets we had and a couple of shirts, it was under warranty, but when they came out and we showed the technician the problem he sais he couldn't find anything wrong and tried to bill us which we refused to pay, now only 2 years old and it want spin out my clothes. It is the worst washer I have ever purchased. Whirlpool needs to perfect it or take it off the market and admit it was a mistake, I am looking to see if I can find others whose clothes have gotten torn during the cycle to see if I can get a refund or exchange in washer.

    Had it 2 weeks and love it. Only have one complaint. It's so noisy. But it washes better than anything I've owned. Absolutely love the large capacity. It can hold so much.

    I bought this Cabrio to replace another one which was on its last legs. This one looks to be even more efficient and even quieter than my last one. Love the clear top!

    Beats expectations

    By ohgram

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

    I explored many washers both top and front load, trying to decide. I finally chose this one from reviews and also because I felt top load would be better for my laundry room space. I have not been disappointed one bit. Others who have complained of "twisting" clothes must not be loading the unit according to directions. I have had no such problem and the clothes come out clean. The choices on this model are just what I needed. I didn't need the steam feature and I am well satisfied with the choices I have. It's fairly quiet (sounds a bit like an airplane in the spin cycle) but does the job without a lot of noise. My only minor issue is I got the large capacity of 4.5 and because I am short, it can be a little challenge to get a sock from the bottom! However, the large size permits me to do many clothes at once and save on the number of loads per week. If you are interested in a top load washer, please consider this one and I don't think you will be disappointed! Also the glass top and finish of the washer is very eye-appealing.
