Customer Reviews

Cabrio 8.8 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Gas Dryer with Steam in Cranberry Red is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1308.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed! I bought this dryer 3 months ago because I have the large capacity washer that matches which I love. The controls have always been stubborn meaning you have to tap them several times for them to work. Last week, the controls stopped working all together! Now I am with out a dryer for at least 2 weeks waiting for the part! The part should have been overnighted! I paid $600+ for this dryer!!!! Also, a load of clothes can take up to 2-3 hrs to dry.l! How can that we energy efficient!?!?! Would never recommend this dryer! I have owned multiple whirlpool appliances over the past 30 years and have been very pleased before now!!!

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.
