Product Overview

Get the quiet efficiency of this 7.4 cu. ft. HE electric dryer, featuring Advanced Moisture Sensing and a SilentSteel dryer drum. Three sensors monitor temperature and moisture levels in the dryer and ensure the dryer cycle stops when everything is perfectly dry, while a unique sound-dampening material that surrounds the stainless steel dryer drum ensures metal buttons and zippers will make less noise as they tumble, so your dryer runs quieter and only as long as necessary to provide peak fabric care performance. Tap Touch controls allow direct access to cycles and options like the EcoBoost and Wrinkle Shield Plus with Steam options, and their sleek appearance enhances the appeal of any space.

Duet 7.4 cu. ft. Electric Dryer with Steam in White-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 76.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steam Refresh is awesome! This dryer is sleek and convenient. I love the steam refresh feature. It freshens my clothes quickly and is convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer. I have not had this dryer long enough to verify the dependability. But my past experience with Whirlpool appliances has proven positive, so I am hoping the same holds true for my new Whirlpool dryer. I am happy with the ability to dry fairly large loads in less than 45 minutes. I am very pleased with the fact that Whirlpool now has stainless steel tubs in their dryers. In the past I purchased another brand, because the stainless tub was a priority, and Whirlpool had porcelain. This model is very attractive and has all the features a person could want in a dryer. Very quiet. I hope to be still using this dryer 15 years from now. Definitely pleased and hope to be that way for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a dream! We upgraded from another Whirlpool set because we were "gifting" our former set to our daughter and her husband. I didn't really expect better because we loved our old set. This one is even better. I don't use fabric softener because of all the chemicals, but, somehow, the clothes feel even softer with this new dryer. Totally happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love to do laundry now! I treated my family to this Whirlpool 7.4 cu.ft. Duet Steam Electric Dryer (and washer) with tap touch controls and could not be happier with it! I love how I can use the steam refresh to eliminate wrinkles or simply freshen something up! I love the sanitize option as well. I love the extra low setting for dedicates. I have a king sized down comforter that I wash once a month and this dryer actually dries it. Of course you must rearrange the comforter to get the best drying results for it is quite bulky. I now do all of the laundry whereas before, everyone did their own. Clothes come out beautifully!!! This dryer is very quiet and I love how you can control the sound level. The "done" sound indicator is even delightful !!! And finally, it is gorgeous!!! A real beauty! It makes me want to put a chandelier in my laundry room!!! OH! I am tall, 5'9" and there is zero bending for me. The laundry easily transfers from the washer to the dryer with the pedestals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 MONTHS AND VERY SATISFIED WITH OUR PURCHASE! I purchased the "top of the line" dryer and received a "top of the line" product! What my family loves most is the dryer will completely dry a large load of clothes prior to the completion of a large load of laundry. If you forget or do not have time to pull your clothes when the cycle is complete the dryer will continue to tumble to minimize wrinkles. As advertised the dryer is very quite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super nice dryer! I was sceptical about buying another gas dryer because my old one (which was probably 30 years old) was noisy and not very took much longer than the washing machine to get the clothes dry. This dryer is amazing, virtually silent, I actually need to go all the way downstairs to see if it is still running or not and the drum is so big I could probably fit inside! The sensor dry feature dries clothes perfectly, but it does not work well with heavy loads like comforters...but there is a specific setting for that stuff. Typically a load of clothes only takes 30 minutes to dry. The cycle end tone is very sophisticated and loud enough for me to hear from upstairs. The steam refresh setting is great for pillows and to tidy up my uniform! I love the features of this set and am so happy with my purchase. I would absolutely recommend this dryer to anyone who is in the market for a new dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Replaced my Samsung washer dryer just after 3 years due to non stop problems with the machines. So far the Duet wfw96heaw washer and the wed96heaw dryer has blown the Samsungs out of the water. My drying time went from over an hour to 35 mins amazing. Great set well worth the price.
