Customer Questions & Answers

How loud is this dryer?

I had an LG Steam Washer in my last house, and it was remarkably quiet.
Asked by: Katrina
The dryer is quiet. The chimes are the only thing I hear at the end of the cycle.

i have recently purchased wgd86hebw i would like to know where the water supply hose for the steam function is attached

Asked by: davo
davo, The Y connector is included with the dryer, but you would need to purchase the water supply hoses. The part number is: W10473735. They can be purchased on Home Depot's website. Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool dryer.

Does the price include installation?

Asked by: mmms
mmms, You would need to contact directly to see if installation is included. In some area, simple installation is included, but in others because this is a gas dryer, a licensed plumber or installation specialist has to conduct the installation. There number is 1-800-HOME-DEPOT (466-3337). Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool gas dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to use, 74 year old mail, my wife pssed. it's easy to u Purchased a different brand, it was very noisy during the spin cycle, the whirlpool duet was recommended. Returned the original washer dryer replaced it with duet. Great machine smooth, quiet, and easy to understand, 74 years old now doing my laundry. Whirlpool looks to me like you got it right.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good Love this dryer so far! The pre-set cycles take getting used to - sometimes it's just easier for me to use the manual setting. The thing that really upset me was that Home Depot claimed (on the website during the purchase) that they had included all of the necessary accessories (dryer vent tube, etc), but when the delivery people were installing it, they told me that I had not purchased a water supply hose for the dryer's steam function. Luckily, the delivery person had one in his truck and was able to install the dryer properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer So far this dryer is working great. The steam feature has been used frequently and saves time. Great features and quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Taking Care of My Clothes - No Longer a Chore Four months ago, my husband and I purchased a Whirlpool Duet Steam Front Load dryer and I can tell you we are as satisfied with it today as we were when we first had it installed. The controls are so user friendly, my two teenage children quickly learned how to use the machine. However, we would advise everyone to read the manual to fully take advantage of the machine's features. For instance, my husband learned how to use the steaming and wrinkle shield feature to freshen up his suits. This has saved us on our dry cleaning bills. Using this product has changed our attitude on taking care of our clothes from it being a chore to - "I don't mind if I do."

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed Heating element We purchased a new whirlpool Duet set (washer and Dryer) Within 3 weeks of install, the heating element failed. NO HEAT!!! So after a week of going to the Laundromat, and thankfully still under warranty, our dryer was replaced with a new one. A repairman came out first but did not have the part since it was a new unit and new model?? Oh and because why would a new dryer need a heating element?? LOL!! So now the new dryer is working so far with no issues. Very disappointing start to a not so cheap investment. I recommend you take out an extended warranty on this unit since it is a new model and glitches will arise. We did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whirlpool gas dryer We purchased this gas dryer this January and I LOVE it! It dries the clothes so quickly and has so many "neat" features. I especially like the warning "buzzer" that lets me know to check the dryer vent for lint.....what a great safety feature! It also has a good selection of dryer times. Not only that, it also looks good! I hope now to purchase the matching washing machine soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from been very happy we purchased this dryer a couple weeks ago and it's been great. We love the sensing option that makes sure our clothes don't get over-dried. It's a nice size for larger laundry loads too.
