Dryer works fine. But, I've had it just under 2 years with normal use and the cord around the door is coming apart and fraying.

    Simple easy to use
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This dryer works great. Replaces my 27 year old Whirlwind dryer. Simple design and operation. Has an interior light which helps.

      Good machine at great price
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Happy I got this machine. It was relatively inexpensive and works great. I got the electric version and was able to install it myself. However, I had difficulty attaching the wires because the cable kit I bought,, which has to be purchased separately,, had a strain relief that was designed for a rectangular opening. Thus dryer should come with a strain guard that fits the round hole it has.

        Great Dryer!
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this 2 months ago to replace a high-end gas dryer that was aging. Made the switch from gas to electric and could not be happier. Dries just as fast as gas and have not seen a huge difference in electric bill. Thank you whirlpool for making this simple workhorse.

          Best dryer ever
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This machine has been very good. And is very quiet and extremely quick and easy to use. Although it’s still new . I love it and am very happy with its results.

            The Good and Not So Good
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Although not as quiet to me as the dryer it replaced, sound level can be subjective so what's quiet to one may not be to another. The dryer knob is my only minor issue. The dry time control knob has feedback (audible click) in some areas but not others. For instance, the "OFF" has an audible click, and there are several clicks around that area as well as the "Wrinkle Shield" area, but I can't tell what they're for. There are no clicks when setting the timed dry or selecting the "More Dry, "Normal Dry", and "Less Dry" settings. It would be nice to have some kind of audible or other type of feedback to let me know I've hit the correct setting. So far I've only used the "low" heat setting and I try to set it to "Less Dry", but like I mentioned above, there's no click to let me know I've got it set right. All I can do is 'eyeball' it. In any case, it dries well. The interior is large and easily accommodates a king sized blanket without crowding. The "Cycle Signal" is loud. That can be a good thing if you need it, and if you don't, you simply turn it off. I like that the door opens top to bottom. When I open the door to check on the clothes while the drying is still running, I don't have to worry about it spitting out clothes onto the floor. If a sock or washcloth pops out, it will land on the opened door instead. I've only had the dryer a few weeks so I can't say anything about the longevity of this appliance. Overall, it works well and I would recommend it.

              Great dryer with fold down door
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this dryer recently. It's working great. I like this dryer because it has a fold door (not one that opens to the side). Folding down you to have a platform to find a piece of clothing you need.

                Perfect basic Dryer!!

                  simple
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Easy simple autistic son I'm able to teach him how to use this... Could not fit in designated area too big so not thrilled with that part... Not asthticly pleasing but again we have autistic son so grateful that it doesn't have too many buttons and lights to figure out also happy it is energy efficient...every little bit helps... Sorry if review was rushed again autistic son... Gotta move quickly around here! Thank you. *We had to remove the doors to get it to fit... Can't do anything about it(expensive) so my husband painted and will just have to make do.

                    SIMPLE CONTROLS
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My kids gave me this dryer for my birthday, as I could not afford to buy one! I love it because it has simple easy to use controls and dries clothes so perfectly. Simple machines seem to last longer and work better for older persons like me!
