Introduction

To paraphrase that song from Gypsy, upscale appliances gotta have a gimmick to justify their prices. With its $1199 MSRP, the Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum WTW8800YW is certainly high end — it even has the name of a precious metal in its title! It's extremely well designed and has a bunch of cycles. But without any distinguishing performance or features, its high price tag seems unwarranted.

Even if you can find the Cabrio Platinum on sale for around $860, other washers do a better job washing clothes with the same amount of features at the same price. The Cabrio Platinum isn't a bad washer, but it doesn't offer buyers any compelling reason to purchase it over the multitudes of other machines out there.
