Where does this get the water for the steam function? Does it have a tank or does it need to be connected to a water line?
Asked by: JD
From the whirlpool response, you would use the y connector to access the cold water like for your washer. Makes sense but it says "The dryer must be connected to the cold water faucet using the new inlet hoses. Do not use old hoses." Does that mean I have to buy new hoses? There is only a short hose that comes with it and the manual says to get 5' hose. When I purchased and selected the installation, there was no option to add hoses. Do I need new hose or no?

I'm concerned about the dryer door. The display model is VERY hard to open and close. Other brands are quiet and soft to close. Is this how it will be, or is this just a display problem?

Cabrio 8.8 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Electric Dryer with Steam in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 3374.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good so far...but sticks out a bit Still figuring out how to work the special features but overall works well. For some reason I can never hear the buzzer. I can on the washer but not the dryer & I've tweaked the volume. Only had this for 1 week. Also, not sure if it's because it has steam but there is an addition 2 inches sticking off the back, that and with the dryer hose makes this stick out pretty far from the wall, a good 7-8 inches. My laundry room is large but it's weird looking now. This could cause issues if you have a small space. Don't see an area to submit a pic or I would.

Delivery and placement by Home Depot was very professional and helpful. Installation was straight forward. BUT NOTE, This is a BIG dryer. It is quite a bit deeper than our previous machine. We upgraded to the stainless steel water hose for the steam option, and took extra time to make sure the machine was perfectly balanced (based on advice from previous users). The results, very nice. The machine has performed flawlessly. Would highly recommend. We had 2005 vintage Whirlpool Gold units, and they feel like Black and White TV compared to a 4K Flat Panel in illustration. We are hopeful also to experience energy savings with our new washer. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds a TON & gets it dry! I bought this to replace a LG dryer that needed 2 cycles to dry a normal size load & still didn't get it all dry. It took a bit to get used to the controls. You don't push hard at all. Just the lightest touch to turn on & start. The amount of clothes that this dries is fantastic! My new washer holds 2 1/2 times as much clothes as my old LG. Even with this many more items to dry, this Whirlpool dryer is up to this task! The capacity is SO huge that I almost have to climb in to get that last sock in the back. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase & have recommended this dryer to several friends already. A great purchase!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaked First time I used this dryer it leaked water slowly overnight damaging the floor, walls and ceiling below. I'm working with insurance to recover the cost in damages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! This dryer replaced a 17 year old Whirlpool Gold that would no longer heat up. I love this machine! It's PERFECT! I bought it with it's companion washer and now I am actually happy to laundry. The drum is huge and it has a ton of settings, but very easy to use. I really enjoy the steam function as it help reduce wrinkles. It's very efficient and so quiet. I highly recommend this dryer to anyone. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best washer EVER my whirlpool cabrio is the best washer I've ever owned! The 5.3 cubic feet washer can wash a California king comforter and it gets truly clean unlike the laundry mat which is where I had to go before I bought these beauties. I will never buy another brand WHIRLPOOL NATION!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable quality Simply put...the clothes come out perfect every time. The large capacity, steam function, multiple settings and moisture sensors combine to produce perfectly dry clothes, towels, etc. without overdrying. I highly recommend this dryer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I would have given it a 5 but the only negative is that you need to make sure you measure if you have a small laundry room because this pair is big! It has an extra 2-3 inches in the back. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
