Quiet
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great machine. Only downside is the LCD. The numbers do not illuminate completely. Less than a year we owned.

Like the detergent tray
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love the machine itself. It’s large enough to accommodate The jeans of my sons and husband who are over 6 ft tall. Unfortunately due to my utility closet being a bit tight I can’t pull the drawers for the detergents all the way out and my dryer door can only opens a little more then half. Wish the back of the machines were more flat. If space is not an issue for you then this is a good set.

Great product
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We could not be more pleased with our Whirlopool front load dryer. Not only does it look very nice in our laundry room it drys very quickly.

Fantastic Dryer!! Huge capacity, Quiet, Beautiful!
We had Whirlpool Duets for years before this and loved them. This washer and dryer are fabulous too. The dryer is big enough to dry a big quilt or comforter. We are able to keep our laundry clean in these large machines. They are quiet and so beautiful. We love them and are very happy with our purchase.

7.4 cu. ft. Front Load Electric Dryer with Steam C
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The 7.4 cu. ft. Front Load Electric Dryer with Steam Cycles and 5.0 cu. ft.

7.4 cu. ft. 240-Volt White Stackable Electric Dryer with Steam and Intuitive Touch Controls, ENER...
7.4 cu. ft. 240-Volt White Stackable Electric Dryer with Steam and Intuitive Touch Controls, ENERGY STAR is like going from a VW to a Caddy! We move up from a plain Jane dryer to this steam version dryer with larger capacity. You will need a "Y" splitter and hose to hook up the steam features, very easy to do. All the touch controls sure beat a rotary dial, the "ON" button you hold down for a bit and it turns on, after selecting the mode you want, you press the "start" button and there is a count down from 3 and the dryer starts up.A really big noise reduction from our old dryer. Also a rack for inside to hold items and lights up to. The dryer has Auto detect and adjust the time for drying.

Super attractive, modern looking, stackable, Intuitive Touch Controls, Wrinkle Shield Plus option...
Super attractive, modern looking, stackable, Intuitive Touch Controls, Wrinkle Shield Plus option with steam...what's not to like? This dryer seems to be able to do anything you could possibly think of for a dryer to do, & then some. 7.4 cu ft interior, so it can handle larger items easily, like a comforter. Plus, it's Energy Star rated, important if you can only use an electric model, like me. This unit has several extra cycles & options that make it very useful, more so than your typical regular dryer. Sanitize cycle, which eliminates 99.9% of common household bacteria, Steam Refresh cycle, which uses water and heat to get clothes ready to wear without rewashing, Static Reduce option, which combines a spray of mist with tumbling after the load is dry, & EcoBoost option, which saves energy by using less heat and an extended cycle time (similar to new dishwasher models). The steam capability is what sets this machine apart, & requires it to be hooked up to a water source (inline with your washer hook-up). Note: The hose & y-adapter needed are NOT included, so plan accordingly...it seems very straightforward & inexpensive, tho', to set up. Excellent instructions, detailed & illustrated, for both installation & use, thank you. Comes with a drying rack. Lint screen is on inside bottom of door opening. The dryer is set up to vent out the back, but can be converted to vent out the left, right, or bottom, also. Comes with a power cord of your choice, & a flexible solid-aluminum 4” vent hose & elbow (at least mine did). PS: This has a left-opening door, which is reversible, tho' it looks like WAY too much of a project to me (see manual). I suggest being content with it opening on the left?

We Like it
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought this dryer to replace our old Whirlpool dryer. This dryer is a big upgrade from our old model. It has a ton of great features and is an energy star appliance. With normal and full loads it works like a champ. However with small loads the sensors seem to fail to detect that the load in not fully dry. In some cases shutting the dry off after only a minute or two of drying time. When we run small loads we have to set it on the timed dry setting, so small loads (one or two items) get don't get much benefit from energy savings.
