Dry large loads from your top load washer with ease with the 7.4 cu. ft. Whirlpool Cabrio dryer. Even items like comforters and sleeping bags won't be a problem for this large-capacity model. Thanks to features like the Normal cycle, you'll be able to take care of everyday items without the worry of over drying or wrinkles. The Wrinkle Shield option helps keep wrinkles from setting into clean clothes, while the AccuDry sensor drying system uses two built-in sensors to help prevent over drying and automatically stop the cycle when the load is dry. And with the Quiet Dry noise reduction system, you can even keep operational sounds inside the dryer and out of living areas.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 51 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good but not great This dryer dries clothes pretty quickly. The programmed settings dry the clothes well without baking them. I also really like the option to turn the signal down or off. My only problem with the dryer is that after 2 months it started making a very loud noise while drying, which had to be fixed by Whirlpool and was covered by the warranty. September 29, 2014
