Preserve the perfect fit of all your favorite clothes with the large capacity of the Whirlpool 7.4 cu. ft. HE gas dryer, which virtually eliminates shrinking and overdrying with Advanced Moisture Sensing. Three sensors monitor temperature and moisture levels in the dryer to ensure the dry cycle stops when everything is perfectly dry. The drum's stainless steel construction presents a smooth surface that helps deliver ultimate gentleness by cradling clothes as they tumble, while four shorter, staggered baffles increase the effectiveness of the dryer and promote better, more even tumbling. Tap Touch controls allow direct access to cycles and options like the EcoBoost option, and their sleek appearance enhances the appeal of any space.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Petformance I have owned the dryer 3 months now and I only like it more. I have its matching washer too. The dryer is so quiet and efficient. I am always happy to hear it's pretty song. The inside light is a brilliant innovation. The clothes are always dry, never needing a redo so the sensors work great. I just used the steam feature for my new napkins which I discovered are not permanent press. This crumpled mass of linen and cotton came out smooth and foldable. I was going to scream if I had to start ironing my daily use napkins but the dryer saved my voice. I love this dryer. October 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Dryer. I bought this dryer about 1 year ago, the dryer works well, there are time when I check the clothes about 20 minutes before they are supposed to be dry. The clothes are dry, so it runs longer than needed. When drying sheets items, they roll up, with other items mixed in it, so they don't dry well. For the most part I like the dryer. October 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome! We've had the dryer for several months and are extremely happy with it. The STEAM setting is excellent for the kids items -- NO IRONING REQUIRED! There is a lot of room in the dryer - bigger loads means fewer loads:) We would definitely recommend and buy again. September 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Features Bought a new house and updated to this dryer. I am so happy that I did. It holds a ton of clothes, and dries very fast. It has many features that cut drying time in half for me and also has a steam feature that refreshes clothes. August 15, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good dryer but!!!!! This dryer was purchased in January 2014 to replace our 7 year old Duet gas dryer that was lost due to a cabinet fire caused by a build-up of feline hair within the inside of the dryer cabinet. Owner manual Instructions to alert the consumer to this peril were marginal at best. No access doors were available. Same for the replacement. Now to service the unit for the hazard, is a real pain. You would think that Whirlpool geniuses would have built a better dryer with appropriate access doors. I think not!! As for drying performance, it is about equal to its predecessor except for one item. Bed sheets "ball" up more frequently. This causes the sheets to be dried again. This condition is the reason for the good rating. May 1, 2014
