    Q:Can this model be stacked with washer WFW6620HW?
    by|Nov 30, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello Bmitch, our Washers and Dryers are sold in pairs, with special designs that make them compatible and safe for stacking. Our stacking kit is a universal stacking kit but is only universal in the sense that any paired Washer and Dryer model can be stacked with it. Non-paired Washers and Dryers we do not recommend stacking together, as stacking could make them unsafe to operate in your home. We hope this information helps.

            So Far, So Good
            Our first Whirlpool Duets were purchased in September of 2003. They both started acting up at the same time, but were used a lot with a family of 5 for 16 years. First decision another Whirlpool. Second decision, larger size. We purchased the pair W/D with no WiFi. This dryer is gas, and works amazing. It runs in half the time as the old duets. We have not used the steam cycle yet. Make sure you get a steam kit for your dryer.

              I had really high hopes for this dryer, and for the most part, it has delivered. I replaced a 5-year-old dryer by another big-name US manufacturer (which is actually under the same ownership), hoping that it would improve upon both controls and drying effectiveness. I'll go over the pros and cons in each of these categories: CONTROLS: Overall, this Whirlpool is indeed an improvement over my older dryer. The controls are much better - I really don't like dials, as they are an example of form over function. The touch-sensitive buttons on this model are much easier to use. Just select your load type, your cycle type, and you're set. You can also modify the standard settings for each load/cycle combo by increasing/decreasing heat and dryness, as well as using steam, the wrinkle shield, etc. Another feature I like is the "Damp Dry Signal," which rings when the items are damp but not quite dry, in case you'd like to pull them out to hang them (which is what I do with most clothes). I just wish the signal were a little louder - it's a bit hard to hear if you're not near the dryer. The problem I have with the controls is that the duration shown for each cycle doesn't make a lot of sense. If you adjust temp or dryness from the default, it doesn't change the cycle time, which just seems incorrect. If I want my items less dry, shouldn't the cycle shorten from default? If I want lower temp but the same dryness, shouldn't it get longer? Unfortunately, the dryer does not adjust the cycle time, which suggests to me that it's not going to do a good job if you change from default cycles. A final small issue is that the button labeled "Hold to Start" really does require that you hold the button down - for a 3-2-1 countdown displayed on the screen in fact. This is annoying when you're in a rush, or constantly pulling clothes out and restarting. I think this is a safety feature so kids don't accidentally start the dryer with a pet inside (or something to that effect), but it is a bit bothersome. DRYING: For clothes-only loads, the results have been great. I particularly like the EcoBoost function, which reduces heat and lengthens the cycle to save energy and put less stress on your clothes. It really does dry them just as well without "toasting" them. The main issue I have with this dryer is that while it doesn't over-dry loads like my last dryer, it tends to under-dry them. I thought this was just because it has trouble with mixed loads (like shirts and towels), where one item is dry and the other isn't (in which case it's probably better to under-dry). But then I did a few loads of just towels, using the towels setting, and selecting high temp and max dryness, and it still left them wet. That was disappointing. OVERALL: I believe this is a nice improvement over dryers from a few years ago. I actually really like the styling - you get the "retro"-themed round door, which is actually really nice because it isn't as big as square doors, yet provides just as much access to the interior, which is of course round. I also like the touch-button controls, which make it easier to find what you want than a combo of dials, buttons, lights, etc. But I still wish that this dryer had a better dampness sensor, especially for single-type loads like towels, which should be pretty straightforward to dry.

              This Whirlpool dryer is very deserving of five stars. The looks alone are very appealing, like a spacecraft, only easier to use. This is an Energy Star rated High efficiency gas dryer. What's really unique besides the huge front loading door, is the steam option which adds steam to remove wrinkles. The dryer also came with a rack for use with sweaters or athletic shoes that are washable. This prevents all of tumbling noise while drying. I have never been excited by an appliance, but this one is great.

                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this dryer a month ago and the Dryer stopped working this weekend. Whirlpool would not take it back and I am waiting for a sales center call (in Michigan). They are so backlogged. My old whirlpool dryer worked like a charm for 20+ years.
