Description

Designed to keep your clothes looking their best, the large-capacity Whirlpool Cabrio(R) High-Efficiency Electric Steam Dryer has 10 drying cycles including Steam Refresh for reducing wrinkles and odours. Advanced Moisture Sensing prevents over-drying with sensors that read air temperatures while monitoring moisture levels so the cycle ends when everything is perfectly dry. Four baffles tumble clothes in randomized patterns so items open up more easily, increasing the effectiveness of the dryer for small loads and promoting balanced tumbling. Other handy features include Ecoboost(TM) which saves energy by using less heat and extending the cycle time, Wrinkle Shield(TM) Plus with Steam for superior wrinkle prevention, and the Quiet Dry System for quiet operation. Pedestal sold individually. It is highly recommended to use a 4" (10.2 cm) diameter rigid aluminum or galvanized steel duct with this product.

High-Efficiency Electric Steam Dryer - 8.8 cu. ft. is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5952.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from While it worked it was ok.... We bought this washer to replace an old Kenmore that we had for years. I have owned the washer for one year and had to call out service on it three times. It was great at first and I loved the ease of using it. The it started making a noise. Now that noise is out of control and the latest from Whirlpool repair is that the transmission is going out in the washer. It was a year old in July. We are a family of three and the washer was never abused. I know the new appliances don't last a long as the old appliances but one year! Really! For the money I expected more than one year of use. My advice is to buy another brand or buy the full warranty......you will need it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loud Just bought this. Large capacity. Don’t buy if you are less than 5’5. Getting the clothes out is a struggle. The drum is too deep to get to in my 5’4 world. I have to stretch and twist to get socks out of it. The cycle time is excessive. Sounds and lights go off when you turn it on to be followed by more rocket take off sounds during the wash cycle. This is meant to clean clothes. Make a simple model that cleans and get rid of the useless electronics. So disappointed! First cycle I said it was going back. Unfortunate since we are a Whirlpool family and that is all I have ever purchased. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This thing is HUGE! I've had this for a couple of weeks and so far it's done a great job cleaning my laundry. I'm 5'4" and need a step stool to be able to reach in to get the clothes out of the bottom of the basket. The area where the laundry soap goes in seems like it could be sturdier but time will tell if it holds up or breaks off. I don't like the lid lock. If I forgot to put something in, too bad. There's no way to open the lid to drop something else in. It has an end of cycle signal but it's not loud enough to hear if you're not in the same room. The cycle options are easy to select.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Design & Durability on Plastic Lid The plastic lid on my model cracked during the 4th year and was replaced under extended warranty since the cracked lid would not close properly so that the lock would engage and the machine start. Unfortunately the replacement lid also cracked after 11 months but 12 days beyond my extended warranty so I am now looking at a minimum of $300 to replace the part with labor. The design with the plastic is very poor quality and I'm really not into paying $300 or more to replace a part that is likely to be defective again so quickly. I will be replacing my Whirlpool with a different brand and never get plastic lid frames again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trouble balancing I bought this washer thinking the other reviewers Must have been doing something odd for a washer to not work properly. We've had the washer for 2 months and have tried accommodating such a touchy machine but we are now looking at the return policy. With a simple light load of sheets (all the same weight) the washer is thrown off balance and spun nearly 45 degrees pushing out our drier with a huge ruckus. Other times I had to re wash loads because there was still dirt on the clothes. For a large capacity washing machine, I expected it to wash a king size comforter, however there are parts of the comforter that come out dry as if it hadn't been washed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Engineering - Avoid Whirlpool engineers reached a new design low with this product. In short, this washer doesn't effectively clean clothing. That is to say, even basic dirt does not come out of clothing using any brand of detergent in any amount.In retrospect, I should have conducted more research on top-loading washers from Whirlpool.The one method that has been successful with this washer is to ADD about 12 gallons of nearly distilled, near boiling water to the wash as it progresses. I add condensate collected from the central HVAC system and heat it to 210 F in a large stock pot. This is then added to the wash as it progresses. This is very time consuming but it works.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Returning washer only because it is NOISY I Love everything about this washer! The 5.3 capacity is wonderful! I have five kids, so washing big loads is important to me. It cleans well. No complaints! But the noise is driving me crazy!!!! Every time it agitates, it makes a load annoying grinding noise that I can't deal with. The washer and dryer are located right next to my kitchen. I can hear it through the closed door. I want to keep these machines so badly but the noise is just a deal beaker. I had front loaders for 6 years and at first, they were quiet but over time, they got louder and louder. So if these machines are loud at the very start, then you know it's only going to get worse. Very sad but I have to let them go.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh, expected way more It's beautiful. But. If I don't use the deep water feature, the detergent doesn't wash out completely. No, I don't overload it or use too much detergent. Yes, I use HE detergent. Some of the clothes still retain their odor too. Then they are so incredibly wrinkled that the dryer doesn't stand a chance of getting them out. Blankets that were folded in half come out of the washer still in half! Obviously not getting really clean if they don't get moved around in there. Finally, the inner barrel already has a squeak. I haven't even had it a year! I'm really disappointed that I finally got the set I'd been wanting for so very long and am so incredibly disappointed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
