Questions & Answers

Can I add a dryer rack?

If so, what is the model number?
Asked by: abc123
Anonymous, There is a card in the dryer that explains how to obtain a dryer rack for this Whirlpool Cabrio. If you would like to purchase one beforehand, then you can contact The Home Depot/ Whirlpool Corporation Hotline at 877.461.3376, Option 2, Option 1. Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool home appliance.

Do I have to have this hooked up to water to use the standard features of the dryer?

The dryer is across the laundry room from the washer and there is no water source at this time for the hookup for the steam cycle on the dryer. We don't need the steamer cycle at this time but I need to know if the dryer can be used without the water being hooked up.
Asked by: Packer
Anonymous, Water does not have to be hooked up to this dryer in order for it to operate. You would only the lose the benefit of the cycles where Steam is an option. Otherwise, you would get the great performance that you expect. Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool home appliance.

Cabrio Platinum 7.6 cu. ft. Electric Dryer with Steam in White is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1935.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grat features on this applince I bought this drier a little over a month ago and were so glad we did. It does not take very long to dry our clothes and you can hardly hear it working. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased! Bought this after my old faithful dryer finally quit. Very pleased at how quick my laundry dries! Not used to having it done so soon! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from i trust whirlpool the model and brand are great, this is our second set, bought it three months ago. first set lasted 10 yrs. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like the tumbling feature to prevent wrinkles. I bought this over a month ago and am still waiting for the steam feature to be connected! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features!!! I purchase my Whirlpool Washer and Dryer on 4 Mar 15 and consider it to one of my best purchases. I did not think I would be as please as I am with this product, it does everything and more. I actually tell everyone of my friends if you are in the market for a new Washer and Dryer get any of the Whirlpool Products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from efficiently effective Less energy, quicker dry time means less wear on clothes. The quick steam feature allows me to effectively run behind and out the door looking like a professional...
Date published: 2014-07-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from New technology for older folks We had a hard time adjusting to the low volume of water in the machine during washing. This is not what we were not used to after all these years of using a traditional washing machine. Old dogs can learn new tricks! After 6 weeks we are still not sure that this was for us - but we are hopeful that we will get used to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A dryer couldn't get better than this. So, it's been a little over a month and I am ecstatic about my purchase. This dryer has every feature I could ask for. It has already begun making my life easier. I love the refresh feature. Now I can come home from the office, refresh my shirt and head back out to dinner. It knocks those wrinkles right out and freshens the shirt in less than the time it takes to iron another one. I also absolutely love going to the dryer and finding my clothes completely dry, but not over-dried. In the past I would always have to do a self-damp test. Reset the dryer and hope to catch it before it toasted my slacks. I can truly say this is the best appliance investment I've made in quite some time. I do not know how much money I may save by properly caring for my clothes this way, but I'm sure it's worth it.
