Comments about Whirlpool 3.6 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:
Very disappointed in this machine. It is only 6 years old and for the first 3 years it had very light duty as I lived by myself and only did 2-3 loads a week. Now the lid light flashes and it stops mid cycle. The only way to get it to work is unplug it and plug it back in. Service came out two weeks ago and changed the belt advising that it was the problem. Well the same problem continues to happen and we called service out again. Now they say the main control board has to be replaced at a cost of $240. That's in addition to the $160 bill last time they were out. Now our dilemma is do we sink more money into repairs or cut our losses and buy a new one. It is disgusting that appliances cost so much money and don't even last 10 years. I expected more from Whirlpool.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Would never recommend this washer
By Aggravated launderer
from Knoxville, tn
We have not had a pleasan experience with this washer. We can not trust it to work consistently. Many times, the wash cycle does not complete. Clothes are left soaking wet in the drum. It may take 2 or 3 hours to complete a cycle, sometimes correctly and sometimes not. Laundry is time consuming as it is, repeating cycles is totally aggravating and wasteful.
The money that I pay for it Is not worth
from Miami Texas
I bought it more than a year and now the sensor stop to works and the warranty is not more work for it so I'm really sad cause I pay a lot for my new washer and pay more for repair is not worth and I don't recommend it to anybody

from Clinton Twp. Mi
we bought the matched set 4 years ago thinking we were buy good quality items for the over $2000 we spent thought we would have machines to last a very long time. after all the ones we replaced were ancient hand me downs. the washing machine developed a leak was loud & noisey. finally it stopped agitating. we called a repairmen from our church. he informed us the washer was a very poorly made model & would cost over $400. to repair, & would end up having other issues. that we would be better off cutting our losses . needless to say im not rich & after spending a large amount of money to have it only last four years i am very unhappy!!!!!
from 100 Mile House, BC
I bought this in August 2016 and am very pleased with it except for the fact it has 'default settings'. I don't care for that. I like to choose the 'default settings'. When I load the washer, it automatically goes to HOT when we all know that the majority of the time we want COLD. On my old machine, I always had it on COLD and when I need it for WARM or sometimes Hot, I CHOSE. Half the time I forget I have to push a button to move it to COLD and that doesn't make my life easier. I like to throw the laundry in, know it's automatically on COLD and turn the cycle on.This is the only complaint I have about this machine. I long for the time we used dials and could leave the settings we want done the way we want.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Mediocre at best
from Garson, Manitoba, Canada
This machine is very noisey during its wash cycles. We had a non high efficient top loader before and it was more quiet during its wash cycles.

Nice At First, Not So Much Later!
from Brooklyn, NY
At first the Cabrio is a nice machine. I've owned it less than 4 years and have had it serviced 2 possibly 3 times. Bearings have broken, lid will lock, water wouldn't drain, all of the above. After only 3 years there is horrible rusting under the lid. The rust just gets worse and worse. Powder coating shouldn't wear off after 3 years, and you definitely don't want rust on your clothing, towels, bedding, etc. It is best to use the clean washer feature, because for sure, towels and clothing begin to hold on to funky odors. Not all stains come out and the HE feature is meant to save on water, however, if the clothes don't come clean and you have to rewash, it defeats the efficiency factor. I gave Whirlpool Cabrio a shot, it's time to give up after 4 years. I strongly recommend to others reviewing Consumer Reports testing and ratings. I am therefore moving on to a Samsung Washer.

lasted 5 years and 3 months

This washer worked OK although I don't think it cleans as well as a washer with a large agitator, however...it just died at the ripe old age of 5 years and 3 months. You decide if this is a good value.
