Whirlpool Cabrio Washer and Dryer Review

The Whirlpool Cabrio Washer WTW5700XL (Price range: $899) has extremely poor reviews. This washer uses very little water, which is good for the environment. It vibrates little during its spin cycle.

However, it is not much good at removing really tough stains. Furthermore, clothes get completely tangled up while they are being washed, and the machine breaks down frequently. Most of these models do not even last 2 years. All customers state that buying this machine is a total waste of money. Let’s take a look at some other options.

This washer does not have very good reviews. It has a very large capacity, so it is suitable for large families. It does not have many features, and its option buttons are difficult to use and understand. It does not get rid of stains effectively, and it uses a lot of water. Prince Range: $1059.

The Samsung WF457ARGS [GR] washer

Samsung WF457ARGSWF457ARGS has better reviews. It has some excellent features, such as automatic temperature control and a large capacity. One reviewer states that it is the best machine that he has ever owned.

However, others state that their machines vibrate so much that they cause the entire house to shake, and that they broke down within six months of buying them.
