          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have been using this hybrid dryer for about a month and so far it is working great. Not having to use an external dryer vent was the main reason for purchasing this unit. Some heavy items take a little longer due to the energy efficiency of this hybrid unit but saving on electricity is worth it.

            Great dryer! Doesn’t destroy my clothes!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this dryer in August of 2019, and have been happy with it ever since. I bought it solely because of what it DOESN’T do to your clothes, and that’s burn them with hot air until they fall apart. This dryer literally sucks the moisture wetness from your clothes, and empties the water it has taken from my clothes, down the same drain my washer empties in to. It takes a bit longer to dry my clothes, but who cares when you know it’s not destroying your clothes. It has plenty of features and choices when drying your clothes, and has enough programs to get what you need, done. It’s not a “smart” dryer, but I honestly don’t see the need for it. The ONLY thing I wish it could do was a steam refresh cycle if you wanted to get the wrinkles out of some wrinkly clothes. But, that isn’t a reason not to buy it. So, if you’re looking for a dryer with lots of drying programs, one that doesn’t destroy your clothes, AND BEST OF ALL, doesn’t use a lot of electricity; then this is a great dryer to buy. I can’t see myself owning any other kind of dryer at this point, hybrid heat pump is the way to go!!

              Good in theory, maybe
              We bought a previous model about 6 years ago. I knew about cleaning them and don't mind the disassembly to do a deep clean. Problem is, you can't actually clean it. And dirt build up inside the evaporator and there is no way of getting it out. These things are absolute garbage. Don't ever buy a heat pump dryer!!

                Second unit that dies very quickly
                We bought one in 2021 and from the start it took forever to dry clothes. That got longer and longer as we used the unit. After about 18 months the unit completely died. We replaced it with another unit and within the first 6 months we are seeing the same issues. Glad we got an extended warranty as we will need it. This is a very expensive but poorly made unit.

                  Poorly designed lint filter
                  poorly designed lint filter. Condenser clogs easily. Condenser is now clogged with no way to clean without dissembling the entire dryer. Whirlpool will not address this issue.

                    Faulty design!
                    This is the worst dryer I have ever had in my life. The design is totally faulty and it should be recalled for it by the manufacture. The lint gets into the machine and clogs up the unit. The metal filter in the front cannot be removed and so we had to cut the metal in order for us to access the clogged up unit. With a soft toothbrush we had to clean out thick layers of lint. Because the machine accumulates lint everywhere (and we clean the filters after every time we use it), it takes hours for anything to dry. Horrible machine!

                      Terrible
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Doesn’t dry…digital numbers are not working. I tried unplugging to test but it didn’t help. I scheduled a service call and no one showed up.

                        All other negative reviews are spot on. Avoid.
                        I bought this dryer for my allergies as it is the only large heat pump dryer around that can fit comforters, blankets and rugs that I need to wash regularly. I will never buy from Whirlpool again after this experience. They don't stand behind their products. They also avoid specifying in the manual exactly how cleaning the lint accumulation on the coils needs to be done, just that it should be done every 2 years. If they did, NO ONE WOULD BUY THIS DRYER. The only way to do this is for the serviceperson to disassemble the ENTIRE dryer to access this area. Who on earth would buy a dryer that has to be disassembled top to bottom routinely? This introduces opportunity for more problems each time if it's not put back together properly and for disconnecting and reconnecting pieces continuously. All the other reviews are SPOT ON about the design flaw with the filters not being airtight and causing lint accumulation on the coils. Vacuuming religiously helps but doesn't stop it. This lint eventually gets mildewy due to condensation so clothes smell after a cycle. After 3 years I finally had a serviceperson come to clean the disgusting mildewy mat of lint off the coils at the front and all across the machine by disassembling the ENTIRE machine. I have been running it this week and already am concerned it wasn't put back together properly as the moisture sensor isn't working well now. One load was bone dry yet it said it was damp and still had 46 mins to go. Clothes seem to be getting stuck on top of the primary lint trap too and blocking air flow. Unbelievable that I spent all this money for such a poorly designed dryer that I likely will have to replace sooner than later. And it's still being sold. I will also never trust our appliance store either after this experience. I reached out to them and they said they don't service, they only fix problems so it was up to me to contact Whirlpool. Whirlpool did nothing except say read the manual and that they would note down this issue. Clearly they don't care if it's still being sold despite all our reviews mentioning the same issue. I had to organize and pay for the three hundred and fifty dollar service call myself.
