Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
mmms,
You would need to contact HD.com 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.

We are hoping to reuse the pedestal of our Elite He3 dryer pedestal (model # 11082822101) We have had trouble finding the specs to compare the two. If this will not fit, with one will. We were told that Whirlpool was the manufacturer of our Kenmore model so they may be compatible. thank you

You would need to contact The Home Depot/Whirlpool hotline at 877.461.3376, Option 2, Option 1. You will be connected with a Parts and Service specialist. They would be able to look up older models and see if the pedestal is compatible. Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool gas dryer.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 131 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 13, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Love the steam feature. Good so far, nice options. Spent extra for the steam option because I do not iron. Have found that it works well with a dryel sheet to "dry clean" suits. I like the dryer more than the washer that matches because the washer tends to twist clothes into knots. Had them stacked to save room in our laundry/bath area (they are deeper than our old pair). December 31, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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." April 30, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Dryer!!! My clothes do not over dry any more. There are so many functions this dryer will perform it makes it soooo nice to pick and choose the proper drying cycle for my clothes. Highly recommend this dryer! June 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Love the options... I have used my new dryer for 2 months now and I love it. I appreciate having more drying options and temperatures. The damp try feature saves me trying to remember to take my delicates out that I don't want completely dried. Steam clean has freshend up my scarfs and my daughters delicate vintage 40's dress. It had a great sing tone when it's finished. I just love it. February 8, 2015
