Customer Reviews

Cabrio 8.8 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Gas Dryer with Steam in White is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1019.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The greatest dryer innovation since Sputnik. I am 73 years old and when we purchased this unit I said " oh oh" I didn't go to flight school and this looks like an aircraft cockpit. Then thirty minutes later I was operating it like I had it all my life and now wishing I the opportunity to own it that long. This holds more clothes, dries them completely and so much easier to access loading and emptying. So to make a long story short easier to access, operate and so economical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Front loader vs top loader HE Had around a month so far and like it. Had to explain to my wife the difference between front and top load HE. She was thinking that it would fill up to the top like the old top load we had. As our biggest complaint was not enough water with front loader. I told her this does use more water then front load, which makes the detergent more concentrated with the water. Been two weeks later and she got the point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's Easy to Use We really like the size and how much it holds. Don't like the lint collector. It is a hassle to clean. I have always bought Whirlpool products. They have been extremely reliable. I plan to stick with Whirlpool in the future when I buy my next appliance. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from does a great job, but awfully big Have had about a month. Bought with the washer as a set. Wish it wasn't quiet so deep in dimension. 4 inches deeper than the washer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from heated air intake gets really hot! Maybe the error is on my side, but when I select pre program options: (what to dry button) "casuals" and (how to dry button) "normal" the heat is on the hot side. The heat is high enough that pillow cases and running shorts will melt when they make contact with the heat intake grate. They way to fix this is to change the grate to a material that does not conduct so much heat. The temporary fix for my family is to separate clothes on the slightly delicate side to be dryed by themselves on low heat. That translates into more dryer cycles.
