Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 466 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Magical I love my washer and dryer. Energy efficient. Beautiful paint job. Big size allows me to wash a lot of clothes. Has a cool steam option. Clothes come fresh and fluffy. 12/8/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Only have had it for one month - love it thus far. Very easy to use, features exceed expretations, suggested settings are very helpful. Especially like the freshen up with steam feature. Have to see how it goes as far as reliablilty is concerned. Very pleased at this point. 12/28/13
Rated 4 out of 5 by I LOVE IT! In the month that I have had this dryer (and it's matching counterpart!), I have been excited to do my laundry! The end of cycle "beeping' is loud enough that I can hear it in any part of my home. The variety of cycles offered is exactly what I need, there isn't one I haven't used. The only thing that I am not crazy about, (and this could be operator error!) is that sometimes when I put a load in, directly from the washing machine, it starts "sensing", and then it goes about it's drying cycle. But when it tells me it's done, everything is still wet. This honestly could be a bad sensor in the unit, OR it could also be that I have missed something in the manual. EITHER WAY, I still LOVE my Cabrio Platinum!! 11/14/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Easy to use. Lots of different settings for our needs. I LOVE the steam cycle for pillows! They come out fluffy and smell great! I told all my friends and they asked what type of pillows I have, were they safe to put into the dryer, how does it work... Don't know!! All I know is that the pillows I have turned out great! I'm sure I did not pay over $15 for them but now I feel that I get more use out of them. Sorry Oprah! 11/6/13
