Worst Machine I've Ever Owned!
By Fed Up!
from Austin, TX
I've had this machine for a few years and it does not clean well. All loads must be set on heavy duty soil & extra rinse which is about 71 minutes!! So much for energy saving. And forget about using fabric softner, it doesn't get rinsed in enough water so all dark clothes were streaked with softner. Had to go to fabric sheets which was OK but not really how I like to do my laundry. I really did try and make this work but I'm giving up! Speed Queen....here I come....20 gallons of water per load, who cares...At least my clothes will be clean!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Unhappy, long-time Whirlpool customer
By Suckered by technology
I bought the Cabrio Platinum 4 years ago (with an extended warranty). The warranty expired last year & now we have the F-51 error. The machine does not spin after washing. Previously, I owned a Whirlpool top-load which I purchased brand new in 1996. The machine -never- needed to be serviced until it finally died---after 16 YEARS! Then, I replaced it with the Cabrio. I am so disappointed in the lack of quality. Now, we are filling landfills with these new high-tech appliances that don't last. My service guy told me to buy a Speed Queen (the old school kind that doesn't have any bells & whistles, no computers, just like the one I purchased in 1996. The thing will last ages. He doesn't get calls on those). I think it's good advice....

I have had my washer for 3 years now. So far it has been trouble free and does a good job.
piece of garbage
from BALTIMORE, MD
BOUGHT LESS THAN 3 YEARS AGO AND IT IS FRIED. SPENT $400 ON PARTS ALONE SO FAR AND THEY STILL CAN'T FIX BECAUSE SOMETHING ELSE WAS AFFECTED WHEN THE COMPUTER BLEW. WAS NOT DUE TO A STORM OR POWER SURGE EITHER. WAS WASHING AND HEARD A LOUD POP AND WHOLE COMPUTER OF MACHINE BLEW. ALSO ONLY 2 PEOPLE THAT USE IT. SHOULD BE MORE STURDY. THE LAST ONE WAS MORE THAN 25 YEARS OLD. WON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE.

Fool me once, shame on you
from Columbus, Georgia
My 4-year old Whirlpool Cabrio, which was an expensive purchase, is going into the junk pile (along with a lot of other Cabrio's with the same issue) due to the bearings going bad. I have taken good care of this machine, used only HE detergents, followed the manufacturers's instruction on appropriate usage and for what? I guess it's doing me a favor since it has never been very good at cleaning as most loads. I have had to run most loads as heavily soiled with an extra rinse (so much for energy savings). Not happy and I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER one. Since manufacturer's know that they make inferior products (just look at their lack of warranty and how they will stall, stall, stall when it comes time to repair) I will either buy the cheapest model since I have to replace them very often, or I will go to a manufacturer that backs up their products (more money, of course). I will be looking into a Speed Queen - there must be a reason why they are utilized in laundromats. Go figure. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
Horriable! A piece of junk
I bought this machine 3 years ago, paid extra platnium, and thought I was getting a better machine. The bearings are shot and now I'm looking at a $500 repair. Not what I was expecting from a 3 year old Whirlpool

My clothes are still dirty
By Disappointed in LA
from Lafargeville NY
Bought this machine about 3 years ago. This machine does not use enough water to get clothes even close to clean and there is no option to even use more water. Very disappointed with this machine. So sorry we purchased it.

After 18 months the "transmission" started to leak oil.Repair cost is nearly as much as a new one.Not that I will buy a Whirlpool again.By definition.. Whirlpools suck..
