Of all the washers in Whirlpool's 8000-series, the Cabrio Platinum WTW8500BW (MSRP $999.99) is second-best, at least on paper. It lacks the Sanitize cycle found on the more expensive 8900, but still boasts that gigantic 4.8-cubic-foot drum, which is perfect for large families looking to save time on laundry day. The 8500 also features two additional test cycles over the 8100, but no additional washing performance beyond the lesser models.
