Can I convert my dryer from a gas to electric?

Asked by: Tcup
Tcup, You are unable to convert a gas dryer from electric to gas or gas to electric. You would need to purchase a new dryer to be compatible to your fuel type. Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool home appliance.

So far it has worked perfectly and met all of our expectations. The inside is huge and it runs so smooth and quiet. We have not yet used the steam feature, but we're sure it will work fine. The electronic controls are easy to use and gives you many options. Did I mention it is gorgeous? This washer and dryer pair will dress up any laundry area!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awesome features/terrible performance The machine Is beautiful. It's features are wonderful. We love the "touch-up" feature. Within 2 days of receiving the machine it displayed an error code and dI'd not work. We had 2 different technicians come and provide 2 different diagnosis. We were without a dryer for approximately 2 months. The dryer has worked fine for approximately 2 months and again stopped working. A technician will be out next week. We have a large family and being without a dryer is difficult. We'version always been satisfied with Whirlpool products but have been extremely dissatisfied and frustrated this dryer.

However, as others have stated, the lint trap is very poorly designed. it is impossible to clean properly without a great deal of effort. We are going to look for a brush of some sort that may help us. it is bigger inside than most other dryers, and it is very nice looking. If you expect to use the steam, however, you apparently need to be able to hook it up to some water source. Not sure it would have changed my mind, but it may affect others' decision so I state that as well.
