Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

Always stay connected to your Whirlpool Smart 7.4 cu. ft. front load dryer with 6th Sense Live technology and Nest Learning Thermostat compatibility. Whirlpool brand and Nest have taken the first step in their collaboration with a "Works with Nest" washer and dryer that integrates with the Nest Learning Thermostat. The laundry pair connects seamlessly with the Nest Learning Thermostat to leverage Nest's Home and Away modes. Both the washer and dryer can keep clothes fresh if a cycle ends while the consumer is not home. The dryer can also switch into a slightly longer, more energy-efficient cycle if the consumer is away. This model pairs these exciting new technologies with the exceptional features you expect, including Advanced Moisture Sensing, quad baffles, steam-enhanced cycles and the Wrinkle Shield Plus option. (Whirlpool Smart App also available without Nest Learning Thermostat)

Customer Reviews

Smart 7.4 cu. ft. Electric Dryer with Steam in Silver is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Modern Looks Has issues with towels, blankets, comforters and other large items --- twists them tightly and doesn't dry them thoroughly. The dryer leaves the items overly damp and very wrinkled. With all the bells and whistles this dryer offers, you would think you could eliminate this issue that is typical in older model dryers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome machine!! The features on this machine are awesome. Connecting the machines on the wifi was a little tricky, however it was made complicated by my somewhat old network routers that don't have WPS. Reading the instructions before trying to setup access to wifi was instrumental in making this easy. Once i used a WPS enabled wireless router, connecting them was a breeze. The switch and the machines did it themselves. I bought these machines specifically because I use NEST thermostats in my house. It's amazing how the machines will know we're not home and continue tumbling and adding air to prevent any smell to the clothes until we can get them out. The machines also will send us text messages when the load is done which is helpful because we can do whatever else we need to and not worry to constantly check the status. The App is also a great way to check the status of the load. These machines replaced some fairly old top loads that I had, and the first load of whites in these machines were whiter than ever. Being able to load the detergent and forgetting about it until notified by the machines is also a plus. I don't think about my laundry anymore. I just follow the machine's instructions. All in all, this is a great machine and the best investment i made in a while. Yes, they were a bit on the expensive side, but with all the features and the fact the washer uses very little detergent and electricity makes it absolutely worth it. Highly recommended to anybody.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from smart technology at its best I bought this a month ago. We had an other brand that finally gave up the ghost. Consumer Reports had this listed in the top 3 dryers for its quietness - which was first priority on my wish list. When I received it and found out it was smart as well - it really upped my expectations. This dryer can text you when your clothes are done. It can be worked remotely to let it know you will be home soon and to not let the clothes wrinkle. It has a smart grid feature which looks at the electricity level and advises when best to use the machine. Love it! By the way it is whisper quiet too and it is MADE in the USA!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great once it is set up! The set up of this system was more complicated than we anticipated and we are tech savy. I think there could have been an easier way for the company to connect the wifi to the system. Other than that, now that everything is set up, we love the dryer. There is a lot of room. I was able to put very bulky loads of comforters in without any issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smart front load dryer Great dryer does a very good job of drying clothes. I have not been able to set up the internet connection as of yet in the three months that I have had it so that I can track electric usage to use at the most efficient time.
