Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 153 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not as good as my 15yr old Standard Dryer I waited a whole month for this to arrive in stock for delivery after credit card being charged. No better than my 15 yr old standard capacity dryer, Despite the extra large capacity, it cannot dry larger loads as expected. Stupid sensor thinks my large blanket is dry, but inside still wet, and machine keeps stopping. Who needs this kind of stupid sensor when I could tell my old dryer how long I want it to run? I was better off with the old dryer, called Home Depot to complain, but was told machine is non-refundable. Money wasted, should have kept old work horse washer. BUYER BEWARE! August 17, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by It's Supposed To Be A Good Product Unless I Got A 'Lemon' Bought the Whirlpool Cabrio Sensor Drying last October 2014. And I tried doing research & with all the positive reviews, decided to get rid of my old gas dryer. I was so excited to use it, but am sooo disappointed because my clothes aren't drying properly. With a 7.6 cu ft capacity, the load I put doesn't even fill it, yet it takes too long to dry it. It's supposed to save energy with its eco boost but it seems drying times are like the old dryer I had. Frustrating!! After one drying cycle (ex. normal) still wet, turn it back on again, still wet, a 3rd even 4th time, then I'd say dries the clothes, & that is with cleaning the vent every time too. Now I don't know if that's saving me energy but it sure is eating up more energy than my old dryer. December 4, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by works great - not perfect We purchased this dryer about a month ago. So far it works great and I like the features. I am slightly concerned by the lent trap. It is difficult to get all the lent out- actually near impossible and I'm not 100% confident that the lent screen is catching it all. This concerns me because our vent line is long and has a couple angles. The lent build up in our line is what "killed" our last dryer. Hopefully it holds up. The only other thing I've noticed is that the moisture sensor seems extra sensitive. Sometimes my clothes are slightly damp (in an uneven way) and I have to run the dryer a little longer. Just an inconvenience when you're waiting to load another load. November 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use@ We love our new Whirlpool. We had another brand of front loader and were not happy with it, even though it had great reviews. After several repairs, we decided to try the Cabrio and are very pleased with the capacity, cleaning power, and the efficiency. Thank you for making a great product December 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet as a mouse I just moved into a brand new house and had a chance to choose all the appliances myself. Having had such goodhistorical luck with Whirlpool appliances I went all Whirlppo in the new house. I could not be happier! This dryer is so quiet and intuitive to use. It takes all the guess work out of settings, time, temperature....it thinks it all through for you, and the clothes come out terrific. December 1, 2014
