And, with up to 11 adaptive wash actions, your clothes will always experience the perfect combination of powerful cleaning and gentle fabric care.


Adaptive Wash technology with Auto Load Sensing
Adaptive Wash technology with Auto Load Sensing automatically senses and adapts to the size of your load and uses the right amount of water for great cleaning. The wash system is more gentle while delivering better cleaning performance 1 .

Precision Dispense Plus
Senses and adapts to each load, adding detergent, bleach, fabric softener and oxygenated additives on select models at just the right time. A concentrated burst of detergent showers directly onto clothes to penetrate stains and pretreat soils.

11 Adaptive Wash Actions
Up to 11 different adaptive wash actions provide a combination of powerful cleaning and gentle fabric care. They sense and adapt to the needs of each load, handling everything from heavily soiled jeans to delicates.

Care Control Temperature Management
Adjusts the cold and hot water inlets to reach temperatures that are warm enough to dissolve detergents. Water is kept from overheating to help reduce shrinking and/or color bleeding.

4.5 Cu. Ft. Capacity
Wash 3 baskets of laundry in one load. The washer's 4.5 cu. ft. capacity wash basket offers enough space to handle larger loads and bulky items.

Direct Drive Motor
The direct drive motor handles larger capacity loads, enhances the spin speed for improved energy savings and uses fewer moving parts so there's less wear and tear over time.

EcoBoost Option with Eco Monitor
Get additional energy efficiency without giving up cleaning performance. This option uses less hot water and increases the tumbling action to use less energy while still delivering great cleaning and gentle performance. You can even track the energy use of this eco-friendly option with the Eco Monitor. It allows you to see how thecycles and options you choose will affect your overall energy savings in both the washer and the dryer.

Smooth Impeller
This washer's high-efficiency system features a specially designed low-profile plate at the bottom of the wash basket to give you more wash capacity and better fabric care.

Smooth Spiral Stainless Steel Wash Basket
The stainless steel wash basket resists odors and rust and features a spiral design for greater fabric care and gentle cleaning performance. The smooth surface helps protect delicate fabrics from snagging.

Quick Wash Cycle
The Quick Wash cycle is designed to clean small loads rapidly.

Clean Washer Cycle with Affresh®
Deep-fill the washer to clean even those areas that aren't normally reached by low-water wash cycles. Add an affresh® Washer cleaner tablet for best results.

Delay Wash Option
Sets the wash cycle to begin up to 9 hours later so you can take advantage of non-peak utility rates or wash at a more convenient time.

Automatic Water Level Settings
Regulates the amount of water based on the size of the load. Only the amount needed to clean is used, increasing efficiency and helping the environment.

1,100 RPM Maximum Spin Speed
The direct drive motor provides faster spin speeds in the washer to remove more moisture from clothes, so they spend less time in the dryer.

Whirlpool WTW8000BW Reviews & Ratings

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pricey, but okay owned this for about a month now, not very impressed. Had a fisher and paykel washer that was 1/3 of the price for this, direct drive unit, washed clothes no matter what setting....35 min max they were washed and really clean. this High efficiency thing......doesn't work. you can't block the center, which means you can only put like 5 things in for it not to block the center. I own majority whirlpool appliances and am happy with them, but am disappointed in the washer. the guy at lowes says the agitator in an old one beats and wears out clothes. I've had clothes for over 5 years that haven't worn from the washer "beating" it with the agitator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement for our 4yr old Cabrio washer We purchased this machine 2 months ago to replace our 4 yr old Cabrio. We had mixed emotions about buying another Whirlpool Cabrio washer; but we did. So far the new one works fine and does have nice features. The jury is still out on product quality; because our previous unit failed at 4 yrs. and the cost to repair it buy a factory certified service repairman was over washer failed so $400.00. To say the least, my wife and I were both highly disappointed that our previous Cabrio failed so soon and that the estimated repair cost was so high. A pretty short useful life for an expensive machine. (Required a new capacitor and motor at a minimum.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How'd a Thunk It? Had this machine for about an month now and I have to admit it really is an engineering wonder. Because of the forward it honking technology involved, I had to retrain myself on how to do laundry. Efficiency is what this machine is all about...that and conservation. In the latter case, the amount of electricity and water I am using now is saving me money. I am saving time too because I can wash larger loads. Never really gave the technology that goes into the manufacturing of a washing machine before but I am sure interested now. Thanks to the brains and brawn of the Whirlpool family...you've educated me and made me appreciate more what you do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product. I bought my washer about a month ago and I am in love with it. The only reason i did not give it the 5 stars, was because the only type of detergent you can use in the dispenser on the washer has to be HE. Personally that is not an inconvenience to me because the detergent I use is HE safe, but other people may have a problem when it comes to using their favorite detergents. Aside from that this washer is wonderful. The capacity is beyond amazing, I feel like no matter how much I put in I still have plenty of room to spare. I also enjoy all the different settings there are to choose from and how easy it is to use. Overall super impressed and satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review of Cabrio Washer We have for many, many years been Kenmore fans but recently purchased a Cabrio Washer and cannot say enough good things about it. We were looking for a mid range priced unit thinking that when we move in a few short years we would be leaving the appliance behind. Wrong! We love this machine! It is simple to use, it offers superior cleaning, has an excellent load capacity, is super energy efficient using less water and electricity. Another feature that surprised us was the "alarm" that let you know the machine was done. So nice! No more running up and down stairs to see if the machine is done. We would highly recommend this washer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from many options This has been an interesting machine to get to know. It has a lot of setting options to get just the clean you want. All electronic and not manual type settings. Seems to clean well enough. Interesting thing though. This is not a really quite machine. Used to work for the airlines. Every time it operates, it sounds to me like a airplane setting up to take off (although a more quite than an airplane). My last machine was very quite so it is a little interesting. While waiting to build we are in a very small apartment and the machines are located in the living area. I probably wouldn't hear it so much if it was in a separate room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Recommendations for this Washer! My old Whirlpool was leaking water (18 years old) so bought new pair and am so glad I did. I will only buy Whirlpool/GE products. My fridge is a simple, old-style, 18 cu ft and have never had one problem or repair needed on it in over 26 years! In fact, I still have the same GE light bulb in my front porch light I put in the fixture over 26 years ago!! That says something! But like the washer & dryer both - large tub capacity and I can easily wash bedspreads, rugs, blankets, pillows, etc. without the annoying agitator style washer getting off balance! Even though a bit pricier, I would highly recommend this pair to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice looking I got my washer for Mother's Day and I have to say I was truly disappointed in the beginning. I was ready to take it back. My 15-year-old Maytag did a better job of washing the clothes than my new one! After experimenting with a few different detergents, I found that I can use a cheaper detergent, but need to add something like Biz Stain and Odor Eliminator. I add 1/2 cup to the bottom of the washer before adding clothes. Without it, the clothes did not look clean or smell clean and this was from the initial washing. I didn't feel the washer added enough water to rid the clothes of bacteria, but by adding the Biz, I am satisfied with the washer's ability to clean.
