Customer Questions & Answers

Is it stackable? May a put the washer above it or below it?

I live in an apartment and I don't have the space to put the washer and the dryer side by side. I would like to know if I can put the dryer or the washer (Whirpool) above it or below it.
Asked by: rofarias
Stacking? I would guess most anything can be stacked if it is properly supported and connected. (Can you reach in the top unit)? The last part of your questions implied you might put the washer on top. ~ This thought may or not be an issue, but I'll touch on it anyway. If the gray-water discharge line from the clothes washer is improperly installed (mounting or positioning) the washing machine might gravity drain or appear to malfunction. Check to make sure the models capability if your 2" (Yes, it should be 2" to minimize excessive back pressure or flooding) wall drain is compatible with your washer height.

If this dryer is ventless why is "semi rigid dryer duct" listed as a required part at check out?

Asked by: pickychick
It is optional, I wondered the same thing. Just call customer service when ready to order and make sure you aren't charged for that equipment

Total installed depth?

I see in the specs that the dryer is about 32" deep. How many additional inches (to back wall) are necessary for whatever hoses, cords, etc come out the back?
Asked by: pickychick
I got mine to slide in and sit about 30 1/2" from wall (at the top of the dryer, the door sticks out farther). The washer is the trouble maker as its plug is just stupid. It points directly out horizontally and seriously adds a couple inches onto the depth. The dryer plug (I think we had to supply) does a 90 degree bend downward taking up virtually no additional space. You can get this dryer really far back and nothing like a vented dryer..

Can I use the drain pipe that is used for the washing machine?

I plan on buying the washing machine and stacking the dryer on top of it. Do I need to have another drain installed? If the dryer is stacked, how can I move it away from the wall to vacuum the back?
Asked by: Jane
Yes, it comes with the necessary pipe and has a metal 'hook' of sorts on the end to stay seated in the same drain pipe. Works great.

Customer Reviews

7.3 cu. ft. Ventless Electric Dryer with Heat Pump Technology in Chrome Shadow, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 123.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst dryer ever purchased Do not waste your time or money. I wish I knew then what I know now. We bought this dryer because we were building a new laundry room on our second floor and did not have a dryer vent, we thought this would be good because they are more energy efficient. We should have put a vent in the wall. The unit takes over two hours to dry a load of white wash and it heats the room it in by over 10 degrees. The units has only been used since the beginning of May and we will be getting rid of it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Other review almost scared me off, but I love this Dryer!!! My friend lives in England and has raved about these, so I decided to try it out even with some scary reviews that made me nervous. I've had this dryer for 3 weeks now, and cannot believe what I've been missing out on! I've had this long vent that gets plugged every few months and drying clothes was a long process taking two cycles and a timed dry all in a row. Now I just start my dryer, and decide if I want Eco or Speed. It's dry! Imagine that a dryer that dries! Seriously though my clothes are coming out so much nicer than before I cannot believe we don't have all ventless dryers in the US. When others figure the out I'm sure ventless will take over!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with this purchase A lot of the negative reviews were somewhat concerning about this dryer. Was very attracted to the Heat Pump and Ventless for Energy Efficiency and the fact I don't have vent outlet for my house. The price tag was a hefty detourant at first, but went on sale and Energy rebate, decided to take the dive. After receiving it really most the complaints people had seemed to be they got lemons or didn't set it up properly. I got the HD replacement plan for 3 years based on that, so I'd recommend doing that to protect yourself on that front. But I installed it myself. Followed the instructions to make sure it was sturdy and level. Set up the drain hose too high the first time... found it works perfectly if you get a 5-gal bucket and set it on the floor next to the dryer. First load I dried with it, 90 mins or so and they were perfectly dry. Full load of mostly cotton clothes. Since we've done about a dozen loads (we've been washer and dryerless for 45 days almost :( ) and have had zero issues. Everything we put in it comes out dry. The thing can hold a LOT of clothes too. Only "issue" so far was trying to dry a mattress protector for our youngest, the sensors couldn't quite figure out how wet it was by itself. Once her sheets were done washing, added them to the machine and it dried everything just fine. Anyway, if you can follow directions, can afford it, and make sure to protect yourself from lemons, I'd definitely recommend this. Notes: Does not come with power cable by default. If you don't know how to install one (pretty simple actually) or don't want to, you'll need to spend the extra money for a cable (one of the purchasing options) and should pay for the installation or have a savvy friend do it. It does come with a drain hose and hookup that works very well. Delivery guys were amazing. Very fast, professional, and friendly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we needed! We have our new ventless dryer for almost a month now and LOVE it! It solves a venting issue for our home, and has been the perfect solution. Standard vent dryers were taking 2+ hour for a load of clothes to dry, but with the ventless dryer we are averaging 30-45 minutes. We could not be happier, and hope the technology stays around forever!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from avoid Generally works well, but if you need parts expect pain. We need a simple foam filter piece replaced and are unable to so because the part simply doesn't exist for replacement. Have called the whirlpoolparts line 3 times, and received wrong part twice. Fancy, expensive dryer is useless if you can't replace parts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from HybridCare filter is poorly made I have owned the unit for about 6 months and if it wasn't for the HybridCare filter I'd give this 5 stars and recommend it to everyone I know. The filter is flimsy and poorly made. Plus there's a charcoal type filter insert that is getting clogged up that I can't get cleaned out. I have looked everywhere on the internet for replacements and can't find anything. Lint filters are available for every make and model in existence it seems but this filter is no where. I am very very worried about what I will do when the filter finally falls apart.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT energy efficient and poor design We bought this new WED99HED ventless heat pump dryer even though it was considerably more expensive because Whirlpool touted significant energy savings. The logic behind the design made perfect sense - why send all that hot air out the vent when you can recycle it into the machine and not have to keep reheating it. The dryer worked great for the first 3 months, but then started dumping hot air into our laundry room, turning it into a sauna. Two technicians came out and neither one had ever seen this machine before. Whirlpool tech support claims the machine is 'working as designed' - the operating temperature is up to 105 degrees and because there is no vent the heat has nowhere to go but into the laundry room. We live in Florida, so whatever energy savings we may be getting from the dryer will be more than lost by the increased air conditioning bill to cool all that hot air. Now we are going to have to install a fan vent in the laundry room to try and remove the hot air from the house. BTW they don't tell you there is a screen on the BACK of the machine that they expect you to clean once a month - our laundry room is just wide enough for the washer and dryer to fit - so we are going to routinely have to actually pull this heavy beast out to get at the back. Very poor design. Whirlpool has a very unhappy consumer here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice upgrade. I would recommend this dryer, it has lots of great features. I am really enjoying my new dryer and it works great. It was in easy install and all the parts needed were included. The look is very clean and stylish. Lots of features and options for any drying need. Since it is ventless it could work in just about any area of your home. 7.3 cu FT of capacity for drying bigger loads of laundry. It uses far less energy by recycling the hot air. 8 different drying cycles. 4 temperature settings for optimal heat if needed. Signal alert to let you know when the clothes are dry. My clothes now dry better and faster then my old dryer. I think this dryer could work in just about any home.
