Product Overview

Put a simple spin on laundry day even when the loads are heavy with this 7.0 cu. ft. capacity dryer. With the AutoDry drying system and plenty of room to easily handle large loads and bulky items, this high capacity dryer helps to keep your style solid. The Heavy Duty cycle manages those bulky items like towels and comforters with a high temperature to help ensure overall dryness. And, for those days when clothes in the dryer are an afterthought, the Wrinkle Shield option intermittently tumbles for up to 90 minutes after the cycle ends to help keep wrinkles from setting into your clothes while they're in your dryer.

Customer Questions & Answers

Is there anything else I need to purchase in addition to this dryer?

I have seen some people talk about a "gas kit"? What is it and do I need to purchase one in addition to the dryer?
Asked by: Melissa
The following information will help you when purchasing a NEW dryer from The Home Depot. In order for the Home Depot to install your gas dryer, you will need the following: 1. A dryer installation kit for a gas dryer. You can purchase this at the same time you purchase your gas dryer from the Home Depot. The cost is $24.99. This is required to hook up the "flexible" gas line from the back of your dryer to the existing gas line. 2. You are required to purchase a new semi-rigid dryer duct, which can be purchased at the time you purchase your dryer or separately. The cost is $24.99 3. If the Home Depot is installing the dryer for you there is a cost of $19.99. 4. If you want your old dryer hauled away, there is a $15.00 fee. PLEASE NOTE: If you do not have the above mentioned parts, The Home Depot WILL NOT install your dryer; you will! By not having the added items, it could void the Home Depot warrantee, thus you must have them available for the technician to install for you. It is highly suggested and recommended to have a new flexible gas line and new semi-rigid dryer duct for a new installation, as the existing dryer duct will have been filled with hardened lint, which will attach itself to the inner walls of the duct. This could become a fire hazard. So, just get a new one.

Will they unhook and take away my old dryer?

Asked by: Kimberlee
The delivery men took the old one, but I had it all disconnected and ready for pickup. I am sure they will do the job, if asked.

Customer Reviews

7.0 cu. ft. Gas Dryer in White is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 813.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whirlpool Gas Dryer So far, after a couple of weeks of use, This whirlpool gas dryer works very well as advertised. It has an exceptional load capacity and is easy to set and use. Though the auto dry function is a little on the conservative side when drying heavier fabrics. The initial installation and setup was easy as the delivery personnel were not equipped to properly install a gas appliance. But I do recommend that anybody not familiar with gas line installations should have a properly qualified plumber or gas line professional do the hookup. The dryer is fairly quiet and has an end of cycle alarm buzzer that can be deactivated by the user from the front panel. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible design for the lint trap. It pulls out on an arc over the top, face down, and drops lint... Terrible design for the lint trap. It pulls out on an arc over the top, face down, and drops lint every time it is removed. I have to wipe down the top after every lint trap cleaning. Also note that it does not have a light inside, which was surprising compared to the 20 year old GE it replaced. Very poorly thought out design, did they even test using this for a few loads before beginning production?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Basic Dryer I bought this dryer last month and am extremely happy with it. It is capable of holding a large load and dries my clothes quickly. The controls are clearly marked and easy to use. I had my last Whirlpool dryer for 22 years and am hoping this one lasts that long. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Noise issues We bought this model March of this year. Shortly after we purchased, the dryer started making a loud noise throughout the whole drying cycle. It sounds like a chainsaw. It is that loud. Every time the dryer is used. We had a serviceman come out and he said he that he had been out on call after call because of customers having the same issue with this model dryer. It's a motor issue. He said he could replace the motor, but there was no guarantee it would fix the problem. In fact, he said that a new motor could even be louder. He said they were waiting to hear from Whirlpool to see if they have a better solution, because changing out the motor doesn't necessarily take care of the problem. I'm a little curious about all the positive reviews considering it's a problem with this model, not just us. I'm disappointed that whirlpool did not reach out to customers about this, or issue a recall. We were told we had to contact whirlpool in about a month or two, to see if they have found a solution to the problem. Not happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer We bought this to replace a dryer that we had for 14 years. We wanted a very basic, high capacity dryer with minimal electronics and this was exactly what we needed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic dryer! At my house, I am the "Laundry Man"! I enjoy making sure that our clothes are not only clean, but the whites are white and the colors look good. Another important thing is to take the wash and wear out of the dryer while still a little damp, hang them up and restart the dryer to get all of the clothes dry. This new dryer is quieter, and more efficient than my old dryer. I can dry the clothes much faster and that helps me keep up with my busy schedule. I recommend a Whirlpool dryer for all of those husbands who are the Laundry Men and any women who might want a great dryer! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
