This dryer makes sure you can dry any load from your Cabrio Platinum top load washer with ease thanks to 7.6 cu. ft. of capacity. When paired together, you can save over $3300 in lifetime energy costs thanks to the EcoBoost option with Eco Monitor.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 909 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to put clothes in and take them out! This has been a great dryer! I replaced an old GE dryer that finally played out after 26 years! We will see if this one can go the distance! The interior capacity is much larger than the old dryer which makes sheets come out less wrinkled. It is very quiet and has several settings to choose from. I have used them all. It does not come with a dryer rack, so I ordered one. When it was delivered the box had been ripped open and taped shut. A piece that secures an arm had been broken off. I have yet to send it back for a replacement. It might do ok broken. April 11, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well I bought this last week and am very happy so far except for one thing. The manual doesn't always line up to my model. There is a chart telling you the settings for different kinds of loads. It talks about a jeans setting but my machine doesn't have a jeans setting and it doesn't mention jeans in any other category. There a couple of these kinds of examples. Other than that, it really works well and seems to sense when clothes are dry even if the time on the dryer says it should go longer. I replaced my old Whirlpool dryer that was at least 20 yrs. old with this one and am hopeful that this one will last that long as well. I am looking forward to trying the steam setting.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great dryer! I am so pleased with this dryer. Drying time is fast and dryer is well made. Love the light inside the dryer also! Quiet and I would say the best dryer I have had. The only thing I would change is I don't care for the lint filter inside the dryer drum sometimes dryer sheets get stuck to side of it and when u clean it out it leaves lint dust around rim inside the dryer.That is why I only gave dryer 4 stars.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good dryer We bought this dryer coupled with the matching washer to replace a front-load set. The dryer has a huge capacity and dries quickly. It's super easy to use and has just about every customizable setting you could ever need. The only ding I can give it is that it's a little noisier than I expected but that could be because I'm transitioning from a front-load set. I would definitely recommend this dryer. April 18, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product for price and features Wonderful feature of steam is great for wrinkles and freshening clothes. Has a good feature to check your venting so as not to wreck the dryer with clocked venting. Absolutely love it because it much quieter than my old one. April 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bigger than normal This was purchased to replace a Maytag which was not drying the clothes as efficiently as desired. April 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great features and capacity I'm bad about leaving the house in mid-load, and it's great to come home and not have to fold and hang a wrinkled pile of clothes. Just set the dryer on 'steam' and wait 10 minutes! April 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So much quieter than my last dryer. I have had it about a month and I like all of the different settings. It dries all of my sheets and big loads the first time around. April 19, 2015
