Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dm4912000 What a dryer!
I can't say enough good things about this dryer. Granted: I upgraded to this one from an ancient one that finally died. I think Fred Flintstone was the one that designed my old one.
This dryer has all the bells and whistles I could possibly hope for and a couple of those whistles scared the heeby-geebies out of me when they first went off!
The inside is huge! My room in college was about that size I think. If I tried, I seriously think I could crawl in there and take a tumble myself.
A few of the features that blew me away... hmmm
Huge capacity.... auto stop when your clothes are dry.... super fast and I mean super fast drying time!
Oh and a light inside so you can see what you are doing! Hooo Haaa!!!!
The one thing I am curious about but have learned to deal with.... the door opening is strangely small. I mean much smaller than you would think it should be. But.. hey... they are wet clothes... they go thru that door just fine and then end up in this humongous cavernous cave where they roll around for a bit and dry out. No big deal.
Now that I think about it.... maybe Whirlpool wanted to make sure people didn't climb in there like I mentioned before... dang it... they beat me to it.
I still love this dryer!

We had a 28-yr old Kenmore gas dryer that finally needed to be retired (RIP). We selected this dryer because we had the matching Cabrio washer and it was highly rated in a consumer magazine. It's almost a pleasure drying clothes with this machine. No more groping around in the drum in semi-darkness to find that errant sock. No more rushing down to the dryer before the end of the cycle to pull out the stay-press clothes before it stops tumbling and wrinkles set in. The capacity of the dryer is enormous, it has a window in the door, and it has a light inside. Boy, does that make a difference. It now matches the capacity of the washer. The numerous electronic settings make it easy to dry delicates as well as bath towels. The only minor drawback, as noted in other reviews, is that the top of the dryer is inexplicably not flat, but slopes slightly downward toward the front. So you need to exercise caution if you're used to using the top of the dryer to fold and stack laundry.

The lint screen does not work. More lint (large percentage) is missed by the screen than is captured...it accumulates in the dryer vent piping. While thr dryer works good, is fairly quiet and drys well, the hazards presented by poor lint capturing makes the machine unaccepteble. I wish I knew before I purchased it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Drew Very nice dryer
The 20-year-old dryer finally went kaput, so we needed a new one asap. Loved the option to sort appliances by desired options and compare features on the website, then order online and get a delivery date right away.
This dryer does its job reasonably (and sometimes surprisingly) quickly, even on the "eco-friendly" setting, which is exactly what I wanted. Sometimes a bulky or thick item will need an extra few minutes after taking out the item and putting the part that was in the center to the outside, which I kind of expect, especially on the medium heat setting. Once the damp part is on the outside, it doesn't take much time at all to finish up.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jim9462 No more Whirlpool for this Family!
Within 30 days of purchase the unit started making a thumping noise. After three visits from 2 different service tech's. They could only acknowledge the noise and not fix it. Before the last visit customer service told me that if they could not resolve the issue they would replace the unit. Well guess what the issue is not resolved and now they are telling me that they will NOT replace it because I don't qualify for a warranty replacement... the unit is only 3 months old for gods sake!!!! They want to keep tying up my time with 4 hour service tech windows... well guess what... I'm done with Whirlpool!!! From here on out "Life is Good" it's LG for me!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Teenytinywoman Really nice dryer - efficient, quiet and quick.
I like the drop down door as opposed to a swing door. I can throw the clothes from the washer over to the dryer and then flip them all into the drum. One issue I have is the sloped top - the clothes I'm folding slide right off it.

The design is strange, the top of a dryer that slants down? Nothing stays on the top, for even a minute just to fold clothes, everything falls off. (I did order via online so I did not see this in person I may have changed my mind due to the top design) I must admit it dries in a flash, haven't gotten my first energy bill but I would imagaine it would fall due to the short amount of time it takes to dry clothes! I am happy with that!
