About This Product

Drying large loads from your top load washer is easy with the 7.0 cu. ft. Whirlpool HE dryer. Even bulky items like comforters and sleeping bags won't be a problem for this large-capacity model. For those days when you don't have time to rewash clothes, the Steam Refresh cycle can help you relax wrinkles and reduce odors. And you can rest easy knowing the AccuDry sensor drying system helps prevent overdrying by stopping the cycle right when the load is dry. Plus, once your clothes are dried, the Wrinkle Shield option tumbles them periodically to help keep wrinkles from setting in. You'll be able to take care of everyday items like work clothes with the Normal cycle. And if your favorite pair of jeans need a little more time in the dryer, use any one of the convenient Timed Dry cycles.

  • Extra-Large 7.0 cu. ft. capacity easily handles large and bulky items
  • 13 cycles include: Timed dry cycles, AccuDry (auto) cycles and Air Dry cycles to provide drying choices for everything from delicate lingerie to heavy cotton towels
  • Dryer drum's powder-coat finish resists chipping and abrasion to help protect clothes from damage

  • Steam Refresh cycle uses water and heat to relax wrinkles and reduce odors from clothes in just 22 minutes. It's ideal for those items you'd rather not rewash
  • 3 temperature settings help provide the proper heat for different fabric types
  • AccuDry sensor drying system evenly dries loads the first time using two built-in sensors that measure moisture and temperature levels
  • Wrinkle Shield option provides intermittent tumbling without heat at the end of the cycle to help reduce wrinkles

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Bob, The exhaust for this unit can only be exhausted out the back of the unit. We hope this helps.

        by|Mar 10, 2021

          A:  Not sure what you're asking. But, all exhaust outlets are primarily on the rear of the dryer. As long as you don't crimp a flex hose, you could gently angle the hose around to the side, I suppose.

          Excellent machine
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have had the dryer for over three weeks and it has been an incredible asset to our new home. Great machine and quiet.

            So far, works great!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have been using our Whirlpool washer and dryer set for a few weeks now and it is great! Love the different settings!

              I dig it
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this dryer last month and have used it for a bunch of loads since then. I've found that larger loads need to be put through more than one round of drying, but for most of my normal-sized loads of laundry, it does a great job of getting stuff dry in a fairly quick manner!

                Great dryer
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Works great, love the various settings, the interior light, the placement of the lint screen and the cycles end buzzer. The only thing I don't care for is the door...we have very limited space and not being able to set the basket under the opening to unload clothes is a pain...but thats not the dryers fault :)

                  I haven't had it four weeks.So far so good though.
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We really needed the hamper door because of a space issue. We even payed more for option/s we didn't want and or wont use due to an availability issue (Three month wait or more for the cheaper one) because we wanted/needed it asap and got a good rebate for spending $X amount at one time. So far it has been a champ. We like the light inside and with using wool balls it really dries the laundry fast. I may have given it five stars if they would have given us more time to use it. But I may have given it less. LOL Hmm...I hope that's not the case. With all that said I will recommend it.
                    Whirlpool is all I use...
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this item about 1 1/2 months ago. Whirlpool has always been a very dependable name , even all the senior apartments i have lived in, has all whirlpool appliances. That should tell you something. I love my dryer, I can put my blankets in there and my jeans and there is room and they dry quickly. Thank you for making such a wonderful product. Oh, and it a stylish machine also.....

                          Great Basic Dryer
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I needed a basic dryer for our beach home with a door that opened down. It is housed in a small laundry area near our kitchen so I also wanted something quiet. This one is perfect. It is large enough to hold quite a lot. I especially like the 90 minute feature that tumbles the laundry several times to keep from wrinkling if I don't take the clothes out right away!

                            Love the features and the quiet while drying
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got my dryer on the 4th of July, delivered to me , and I love it , i really thought the steamer feature was really cool , how it has a small hose to release water into the back for steaming , it runs so quietly you can barely hear it , Thanks Whirlpool I'm glad I chose this dryer , i already have the washer now i have the set .
