Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bk Compact, draws about 12amps, takes a little long to dry and pricey.
I am limited on outlets/power and space. A 120v compact dryer seemed like the only solution. I chose whirlpool over the cheaper model competitors, hoping for better quality. It is twice the price, but hopefully it will last.
As I said I have limited outlets/power where I needed it. I could not get an answer as to how many amps it actually draws. I was told it requires a 15amp or 20amp dedicated circuit. This didn't help or make sense. In my case I have a 20amp circuit and if it requires only 15amp, then I still should be able to plug stuff in on that circuit, if it draws less than 5amps.
So I went and ordered it under this assumption. Once I got it hooked up, I tested it at the panel with a clamp on ampmeter. The highest I saw was 11.8 amps with just the dryer running. So I would say anything 5amps or less combined with dryer on a 20amp circuit should be fine.
As far as operation, it does take some time to dry. Only ran one fairly hefty load so far and took about 1.5hrs. I can live with that, given the circumstances and design.
My only complaint so far is the price. Seems like a lot for a tiny dryer, considering you can buy a full size for $200 less. My spaces between paragraphs are not working on here. Sorry.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Yogi Just what I needed
Needed a small dryer to fit under our kitchen counter to replace a dishwasher that was old and we never used anyway. As we live in a Condo with limited space our choice was using closet space or under counter . since closet space is limited we opted for the kitchen,a little unconventional, but it works for us.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HandyManT Takes a long time to dry but that's to be expected on 120v
This dryer does the job paired with the matching whirlpool portable washer in my kitchen. It takes a little over 2 hours to dry a full load of clothes. Less if they are lighter weight. Pretty quiet and easy to install vent hose and clean lint filter. Just keep the area behind the filter bucket clean as it collects lint too. Would recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kili great small dryer!
Hard to find a dryer that fits my small laundry closet in my condo. Love this one and purchasing through Home Depot and delivery was seamless -- love they took away the old one for free!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JH Works great, looks great, right size, drys fast.
When it wa first installed it had a large squeal and the drum turned real slow. The tedhnician had to come back 3 times and he finally fixed the problem. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jay61 Fits above a full size washer in a space where stackable won't fit.
Purchased this dryer specifically for its size. We have a diagonal spaced closet for washer & dryer hookup. A stackable washer/dryer combo won't fit in the space. Unsure as to quality of this product as a 5 yr warranty is offered for $161 plus tax, but would expect this dryer to last at least 5 years. Just bought it.

I am very pleased with my compact dryer. It does an awesome job. Works just as well as my regular sized whirlpool dryer in my home. It is in my motor home and it's just so convenient. No more looking for laundramats while traveling. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
