Adaptive Wash Technology with Active Bloom Wash Action

Our washers deliver better clean and better care 1 . Keep clothes looking newer longer 2 all thanks to Adaptive Wash technology with Active Bloom wash action. It works to thoroughly saturate clothes with water and detergent by using advanced wash actions. This helps clothes wash against one another for gentler fabric care. Plus, this feature senses each load type and then adapts water levels and wash actions, based on the type of load being washed.

Image Feature

Low-Profile Impeller

Our low-profile impeller helps give clothes a thorough yet gentle clean. Its new design gives clothes more room to move, so they clean against one another. The seamless surface and unique vanes also help drive clothes from the outer rim to the center, where the deepest cleaning happens.

Image Feature

Presoak Option

Enjoy better cleaning with the Presoak option that lets you skip soaking outside of the washer. Extra time is added in the washer before the wash cycle, which starts automatically when the option is complete.

ColorLast Option Give your most vibrant colors the care they need with our ColorLast option. It uses a precise combination of wash action, gentle temperatures and time to keep colors vibrant longer 3 .

Active Spray Technology Active Spray technology virtually eliminates the need to pretreat clothing. It works to saturate clothes with a mixture of detergent and water by spraying the load completely and evenly. It's gentle on clothes while still providing improved cleaning performance that helps fight tough stains.

Precision Dispense Precision Dispense provides optimal cleaning by releasing detergent at the right time. Plus, detergents and certain additives - like fabric softener and bleach - get mixed with water before they ever touch your clothes. The result is optimal fabric care and preservation for every load.

Estimated Time Remaining LED Display Always have an eye on how much time is left during any cycle with our estimated time remaining LED display. Part of our updated digital console, it illuminates your selected cycles, options and available choices and lets you know when you can remove items from the washer.

Smooth Wave Stainless Steel Wash Basket The Smooth Wave stainless steel wash basket gently guides clothes and helps protect fabrics from fraying and snags.

Quiet Wash Ultra Noise Reduction System The Quiet Wash Ultra noise reduction system helps keep operational sounds inside the washer and out of living areas. Thanks to sound-absorbing material and a compact motor around the wash drum, you can install your washer virtually anywhere and know you won't be interrupted. People who like quiet will love this Whirlpool® washer.

Quick Wash Cycle Our Quick Wash cycle can wash small loads in as little as 28 minutes 4 . It uses increased spin speeds to remove more water so clothes can spend less time in the dryer, so you have more time to do what you love.

Automatic Water Levels Automatic water levels regulate the amount of water based on the size of the load. Only the amount needed to clean is used, increasing efficiency.

6.1 cu. ft. capacity I.E.C. Put more in each load with enough room to wash a king-sized comforter, thanks to our 6.1 cu. ft. I.E.C. Cabrio® washer.

ENERGY STAR® Certified ENERGY STAR® certified models exceed government standards by over 20% to help conserve natural resources and save money on your utility bills.

Oxi Dispense Option The Oxi Dispense option distributes oxygenated additives at the right time for enhanced cleaning results. Plus, it's an eco-friendly alternative to bleach.

Steam Clean Option Add the power of steam to this stain-fighting option. It penetrates fabrics using increased wash action, rinsing and heat for even more help in breaking down deep soils.

Deep Water Wash Cycle Take on stains with the Deep Water Wash cycle. It adds more water to help break down stains and improves the ability to rinse away soils.

Direct Drive Motor The Direct drive motor is what helps our transmission system handle larger-capacity loads. It uses fewer moving parts so there's less wear and tear over time.

EasyView Frameless Glass Lid with Slow-Close Technology Create a quiet close, every time. Our EasyView frameless glass lid features slow-close technology to shut quietly. The lid also provides a better view of what's being washed and is quiet for an overall premium experience.

On/Off End-of-Cycle Signal You'll always know when your wash cycle is finished, thanks to the end-of-cycle signal. This helpful tone reminds you when it's time to transfer clean clothes from the washer to the dryer. You can also turn it off completely.

Clean Washer Cycle with affresh® Washer Cleaner Deep-fill the washer to clean even those areas that aren't normally reached by everyday cycles. Add an affresh® Washer Cleaner tablet to the Clean Washer cycle for best results.

850-RPM Max Spin Speed The Direct drive motor provides fast spin speeds of up to 850-RPM in the washer to remove moisture from clothes, so they spend less time in the dryer.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Not impressed 8/23/2017

We've owned this washer for 6 1/2 years. We use it regularly for a family of 3. At the 2 1/2 year mark we had a leak that needed to be repaired. The repairman said there was a lot of rust as a result of the leak. Now at the 6 1/2 year mark we are having the same leak repaired again. The repairman said there is even more rust and we would be better off replacing the washer. I've owned several brands over the years and have never once replaced a washer due to poor performance. Whirlpool was the first...and this is the last one I will purchase.

Love it ... just not sure I like HE washers

Ruth 7/24/2017

Pros: the amount of cloths I can wash in one load is amazing. Numerous settings for every washing option. Quiet machine, easy to use. I can't seem to adjust to the HE way of washing. This is my first HE washing machine and I can't get used to the minimal water useage. Had the machine for about a month. It's hard to tell if I'm using enough soap since I never see suds. How are the clothes getting washed?! I wash all loads on the deep water setting, and still the clothes are not submerged (or at least not that I've witnessed). I think clothes are getting cleaned because stains are gone when the wash is done.

Ok

Hodko 7/11/2017

This washer is very deep. This may be good for big loads but I am retired and need to step on a stool and use a grabber to get all the clothes from the bottom. Not ideal for short people. The washer does a great job. It takes about an hour to wash a load. That is quite a bit longer than my old one. It is a great washer other than the fact that it's way too deep and it takes forever to wash.

Annie D 7/11/2017

This is a nice washer if you're 5'5" or taller. I'm 5'1" and it's all I can do to get the garments out... However, my garments do come out clean. This model has multiple settings that are nice. Additionally, this model is very loud.

Awesome Washer

Casey 7/10/2017

I purchased this top load washer after having a front load for several years and I love my new top load washer! The depth of the machine is great. It holds a large amount of clothes, towels or king size comforter with ease. It gets everything really clean. The touch screen is easy to use and adjusts easily for the varying type of clothes I am washing. I also love the color of the machine. After years of white and almond colored appliances it's a nice change. The sound level is adjustable and a cool bonus feature. I would highly recommend this Whirlpool Cabrio Top Load Washer! I can't wait to get the matching dryer.

I bought this about a month ago and have been very pleased at the performance. It is much faster than my previous washer and do love the steam feature. I washed a quilt that had a brown soda stain with steam and it was gone. Truly powerful feature that I use regularly depending on what I'm cleaning. The noises are normal for the sensing technology and the time is pretty average I believe. I am a very happy customer.
