Nest Learning Thermostat Integration

Integrate your Nest Learning Thermostat with the Whirlpool® app. Take advantage of the Rush Hour Rewards program to avoid running the dryer during peak energy usage hours.

Specialty and Customized Cycles You'll never feel tied to the Normal cycle again with specialty cycles. Plus, you can create and save your own unique cycle to dry exactly the way you want with the Whirlpool® app, and then download the cycle directly to your dryer using the Download & Go option.

Amazon Replenishment Automatically order laundry supplies when you're running low by syncing your Whirlpool® app with your Amazon account. This feature estimates the amount of supplies remaining and targets the right time to order necessities like dryer sheets so your family always has what they need to do laundry when they need it.

Advanced Moisture Sensing Advanced Moisture Sensing uses three sensors to track moisture and temperature, adapting drying times to end the cycle when clothes are perfectly dry.

Quad Baffles Four baffles tumble clothes in a randomized pattern, allowing more balanced tumbling.

Intuitive Touch Controls with Memory Intuitive Touch Controls with Memory always ask the right questions. With easy "what" and "how" controls, they effortlessly help you create customized cycles. Plus, they even remember your last settings to save you time.

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. It's part of our updated digital display.

8.8 cu. ft. Capacity The 8.8 cu. ft. capacity dryer offers enough space and our largest dryer door opening ever to dry and unload bulky items like comforters and sleeping bags with ease.

EcoBoost Option The EcoBoost option saves energy by using less heat and extending cycle time. You'll enjoy great drying performance while using less energy.

Steam Refresh Cycle Clothes are ready to wear, thanks to the Steam Refresh cycle. It releases wrinkles and reduces odors without rewashing.

Wrinkle Shield Option with Steam Help prevent wrinkles from forming in your clean clothes. Now you can enjoy the added benefit of steam for even better wrinkle-fighting performance.

Static Reduce Option Helps reduce static by combining a spray of mist with tumbling after the load is dry.

Sanitize Cycle Provides excellent care for your clothes while eliminating 99.9% of common household bacteria.

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.

i'm pleased with the many different settings that I have to chose from. Especially like the option to select my preference of the amount of time I want for an item. Drys large loads just as easily as small load. Best dryer I've ever had and I've had dryers for the past 50 years!!

Fantastic for Loads of All Sizes

Nebraska Hills 7/27/2016

We have been thrilled with our Cabrio washer and dryer. They're large and fast. The dryer handles both large and small loads equally well. And, I LOVE that they're connected to my phone via the app. It's awesome to know when the loads are done and the next is ready to go! I love this set!

Big machine!

Krista 6/2/2016

I love this new washer! It has a laundry app, which makes it convenient for me when I'm doing other things and I don't quite realize the load is done. When my phone beeps, even if I am not near the washer, I can go to it and get the load in the dryer so it doesn't soil... other than that, it is just your basic washer that does all of the things you expect an older washer to do and not much more. It is huge, though and I love that! There isn't anything I cannot fit in there! This makes me feel like my bigger items are getting appropriately cleaned because I'm not shoving it in the washer! Overall, I am glad I bought it!

Megan 5/27/2016

I bought this unit about a month ago when we moved and fell in love with it right away. I could fit a weeks worth of laundry of 4 in it before having to do a load. I also love that I can start the laundry from the app if I forget to start it before I leave the house (which does happen most of the time).

Needs improvement

Cole 4/15/2016

I bought the Whirlpool Cabrio washer and dryer. I'm disappointed that they are not the same size since they are a matched set. The dryer is too deep and doesn't fit into my laundry area very well. If the glass doors on these machines are for viewing the action, the glass is much too dark. I wish the "How to dry" settings would always default to the "What to dry" presets. I wish the dryer didn't signal me to clean the lint filter before loading the machine because I clean the filter when I unload it.

Large capacity washer

Perk Girl 3/14/2016

I did my homework and read great reviews on this washer and then read bad reviews. I continued to investigate and my search led me to this washer time and time again. I'm glad I took the risk. The wash time is a little longer than my old 15 year old washer but you get twice as much wash in one load in the Cabrio. I have not used the app yet. Having difficulties with internet on my end. My only complaint is the noise. It is a little older than I expected but once you get used to it it is worth the "noise". It sounds like a printer printing. Overall it's wonderful.

Best Dryer Ever

Brazil El Fuerte 3/12/2016

I bought this dryer on February 7th 2016, it was an excellent electric dryer 220 voltage by the way. It came delivered as scheduled and the delivery guys who set it up. Were exceptional. They explained everything and how to use it properly. I have been using this dryer since I got it and I love all the features it comes with it was well worth the money spent on it. PLus it came with a rebate when you buy the Washer pair as well. Whirlpool does it again, Thanks for an excellent machine.

Nancy 12/16/2015

I replaced my old and tired GE profile that was at least 15 years old and very tired with the Cabrio. I haven't used every function yet, but have loved what I have used so far. There are so many features that I will be a while before I use them all! I went with a washer/dryer set this time instead of my wait for it to die and replace it then with different pieces. I am waiting to have a reason to use all the functions it came with! Extremely satisfied with my new dryer!
