Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 76 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Yet Have had this for almost 2 months and love it. Dries well, is quiet and the features are great. Love the "towel" cycle - never have to worry about towels being the least bit damp. Perfect for my family. April 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! It is quiet and is very user friendly. Easy to use April 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great dryer This dryer is amazing!! Fits my king sing comforter and has already saved my family of 5 money!! It is quick to dry stuff and when it says it is done, it is!! Clothes are never damp or need to be restarted! February 21, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OK but Nothing Special I bought this dryer to match the Whirlpool Duet Washing Machine I was buying. I had an old Whirlpool dryer which worked very well but I gave to a family member. This is a costly machine and does not impress. In fact, if you want your clothes truly dry you have no option but to use the timed cycle. Otherwise, it is "designed to keep your laundry in better condition" by not completely drying them. Yes, it is designed to leave your clothes damp. Incredible. Save your money and buy a cheaper model which will dry your laundry. September 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by By far the best dryer on the market This is my second Whirlpool dryer. I had to leave the first dryer in a house I sold. It worked perfectly and looked brand new after seven years of daily use. The new Duet Dryer is perfect. My Husband calls it a spaceship! I adore the design and with the heavy use I put it through, it has been perfect. We love how quiet it is because our laundry room is connected to the kitchen which is open to our main living space. It is a high quality product and I will never purchase another brand of washer or dryer. I did read the instruction book because it is technologically advanced and I wanted to use it right. Easy instructions. Highly recommend. April 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Never be dissapointed! Have been using it almost daily for 3 months now and I have always been pleased with the results. Clothes are always dry, even big loads of wet towels are always dry and fluffy. The "quick dry" function is especially useful for me with small loads of baby clothes! Extremely happy with this dryer! September 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smart Machine 2 In May I bought the matching pair of this model washer and dryer, along with the two pedestals - I am thoroughly pleased and satisfied with my new "toys"! I love the fact that this dryer has the ability to keep tumbling my clothes - along with misting them - to prevent wrinkles before I take them out of the dryer. It has a gracious-plenty number of drying time options. My last set was bought in 1999 and I'll just bet these last longer. I LOVE THEM!!! August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love my New Whirlpool Dryer! Love, Love, Love my new Whirlpool Duet Dryer!! I have never had a whirlpool dryer (I bought the washer too and love it just as much!) and I will never purchase a brand other than whirlpool! The number of available cycles and the steam option are great! The size of the loads are perfect for my family and its saving me money! August 16, 2014
