Hose? For a dryer? You mean vent piping? No, it needs a seperate power cable to match your particular outlet and you'll need to devise your own vent to the outside.

Our Whirlpool 7.4 cubic foot dryer was a good buy and is backed by a good reputation. The Home Depot price is competitive and delivery and installation was great. Even the new power cord and a new metal vent hose were included. The dryer is doing a great job. The controls are intuitive- on the left hand side- what are you drying. On the other side - how you want it dried. We are still in the process of trying the various selections and have been pleased with the results. It has several energy saving features but I have no way to measure their effectiveness but the dryer seems to be running less than the old one did. We love the large fold down door making loading and unloading easier. My disappointment was not with Home Depot but with Whirlpool. I was not told that there will be a monthly charge after 6 months introduction period to use the app. I had no problems downloading the app or connecting it to my dryer but do not want to add an ongoing monthly charge(.99 cent a month at the present time) Looking at the reviews of the app there are a lot of concerns. https://appgrooves.com/app/whirlpool-by-whirlpool-corporation/negative

Boy this Whirlpool dryer has all the bells and whistles on it including a light so that you can watch the clothes if you want. It is a large dryer that will handle many clothes and it is rated energy efficient. It has all different kinds of settings and it is divided into two sections, first you select from the what to dry section, then from the how to dry section with many different choices. You can also control with a smart phone. It also has a screen that tells you how much time is left as it monitors the clothes drying. There are to many features to go over in this one review. Run on down to the Home Depot and order one, they deliver as well as pick up the old dryer.

Whirlpool is our pick as they make Jenn-Air, KitchenAid, Maytag, Amana, and Roper, all excellent quality. If you buy parts for your Maytag it comes from Whirlpool. This dryer does every thing well and has many new interesting features we are only starting to appreciate. Vent duct was dented in shipping as you can see but easily straightened. The one feature I did not like was the need to use your phone to get a video with your QR reader. The supplied manual/install instructions were very basic with no info on features so sorry but a nice manual so we can look things up when we have an opportunity to use a feature is much more convenient, even going to their web site for a reference would be better, but it is not there. The little black spring steel thing laying on top of the dryer and a loose screw were flying around in the box when delivered, the bax had been opened and they didn't seem to go anywhere on the machine.

If you want the best cloths dryer that Whirlpool makes this is the one you want! This dryer is second to none! It has a huge capacity! All the functions are digital and are smart phone capable! The dryer is quiet and gets your cloths dry in a hurry! The instruction manuals are okay,and it also has a smart phone app to explain all functions. Just scan with your phone and you're good to go! As far as energy goes, this dryer will use far less than you are used to! I also love the window in the door and the inside light! Delivery was fast and the delivery guys knew just what they were doing! Installation took them about 10 minutes! Dryer arrived with 2 different power cords and a new dryer vent pipe. I already had one installed so that made it twice as easy! This dryer may cost a little more than the older models I was used to, but you can't go wrong with the best that Whirlpool makes! For the features this dryer has, it's well worth the money!

This is an excellent electric dryer. The build quality and materials are excellent. The paint finish is nice and even all around. The door is easy to open and close. I like that the door opens downward instead of sideways. And, there's a window so you can see your clothes getting tumbled. The insulation around the door is excellent and no heat escapes around the edges. There are four leveling feet included and they were easy to install. All buttons on the control panel work and the center LCD screen displays info properly. There are instructions and operating manuals included. I installed the dryer and connected the wiring and exhaust tubing was as easy as other electric dryers. Operating instructions are easy to understand. Coming from dryers that had a timer dial, this is not as intuitive but it is not complex to operate. Drying capability is excellent. It's quiet too. The smartphone app was easy to download. You need the dryer on, but not running, in order to connect the app to the dryer. My expectations are exceeded.

About a year ago, we replaced an older washing machine that was here when we bought our house, with a beautiful new Whirlpool with all digital controls and high visibility LED status indicators that tell you exactly what it is up to with just a glance. The improvement in performance and ease of use was dramatic. So when the old electric dryer with a noisy timer dial began to sometimes “forget what it was supposed to be doing” and requiring “touchups” and smaller loads to correct for still damp clothes at the end of the drying cycle over the past few months, the choice was easy. This brand-new state of the art Whirlpool Dryer has right up to date features, and it even permits you to create and store your own custom drying programs to produce perfect results with various special need fabrics if you want to. The easy to learn and easy to understand built-in presets Whirlpool has provided right on the control panel however, cover most common situations and do an amazing job of producing crisp, wrinkle-free clothes that we were not used to getting with our older dryer, and that we were pleasantly surprised to discover were even possible. This machine was obviously designed with an alert ear to what customers wanted and were not getting with most of the choices out there. The drum size is 7.4 cubic feet. This does not suggest overloading it, but that with other features built-in to give you properly died and wrinkle free laundry, the generous capacity with a properly sized load greatly increases efficient drying and saves you money. This Whirlpool incorporates very effective “dry sensors” that save electricity, increase efficiency and treat your clothes with respect, leaving them neither still damp or wrinkled, or close to cooked and too hot to handle comfortably when the dryer is finished with them. There is a really excellent “Wrinkle-Shield” drying option, that will gently tumble finished clothes for up to 150 minutes after they are dried so wrinkles don’t set before you empty the dryer. So we are finally done with that mandatory “drop everything and run to the dryer” that we were used to before to prevent what my Wife referred to as a “wrinkled mess” if you let a load sit in there for any length of time without immediately pulling everything out and folding them. So even with all the other great features, she is a big fan of the “Wrinkle-Shield” option, as it makes life easier, and even dress shirts come out ready for the hanger. The “EcoBoost” option is designed to save even more energy by intelligently increasing running time while lowering the drying temperature. This dryer is also “internet friendly” with a still evolving and improving Whirlpool App for your Cell phone that opens up fast support, a knowledge base and even remote-control options that promise to make home appliances more self-reliant. This feature turned out to be very easy to download to the cellphone, just like any other cell-phone app., and the dryer quickly connected with it and our home network, with an on-screen guide that pops up right on the dryers bright, multi-function LCD display screen. Very impressive. We Absolutely love this new Whirlpool. Setting up a new dryer is easy, and it is all about preparation. You don’t generally do this very often, so it is a good idea to remember that you are not just replacing an old dryer, but also getting an opportunity to inspect and if necessary upgrade, or touch-up the space where the new dryer will sit, and inspect and clean out the dryer vent, if necessary, which is very important. This dryer includes a “Check Vent Alert”. This is a great piece of mind feature to back-up regular visual inspections of the vent door outside the house, and an occasional flashlight view inside the dryer vent pipe, because clogged dryer vents can occur quickly, and they are a significant hazard. This excellent dryer comes with Whirlpools signature support, both on-line and in their very thorough included installation and operating manuals. Carefully inspect and prepare for your electrical installation needs before delivery of the new dryer. There are more than one style of 240-volt dedicated dryer plugs and sockets, and they can be either three or four conductor styles. Also confirm that door frames and any tight passageways between the delivery truck and the dryer location are clear and ready to let it pass. Sometimes a door may have to be temporarily popped off the hinge pins or some other accommodation may need attention before you have a delivery and installations crew waiting on scene ready to do what would otherwise take just a few minutes to get you up and running.

The Whirlpool 7.4 cubic feet 240 volt smart electric dryer with Accudry is an average size dryer but don’t let the size fool you because the drum is huge! Sleek appearance with curved lines including a sloped top and impressive, modern display. This dryer not only looks good but gets your large load of clothes dry fast! Even though it looks like an average width dryer the depth of the drum is massive. I was able to fit two loads in what used to be one load with the model I replaced. The smart feature is fantastic and even though there was a slight learning curve I have caught on quite fast to the convenience of controlling my dryer from my sofa and was actually surprised when the app sent me a notification that my clothes were dry and even asked me if I wanted to continue the wrinkle shield feature. Has pleasant musical tones and that small display is bright and informative. It’s almost like the dryer “talks” to you. WiFi setup was easy but it did take me a couple of tries to connect. I do not understand, however, why there is a small monthly fee to use the free Whirlpool app when the app is using my WiFi. There is a 6 month free trial period for the app. After that there is a monthly fee. The app’s features though are truly impressive. Dryer is not overly loud when on and does have adjustable stabilizing feet. Where it used to take me nearly one hour to dry one load of all towels this dryer dried two loads in 30 minutes! The lint catcher is huge and easily slides in and out. The bottom buttons should depress more because it’s hard to determine if you made the selection you want but that may be a bit of a learning curve. When you first turn the dryer on it senses the amount of moisture in your clothes then automatically adjusts the drying time. It will show you this on the display. This is an impressive feature and I can’t even begin to imagine how this is possible. It’s definitely a smart dryer. It also has a sanitize cycle. When your load is done and you are using the optional app, it will let you know the cycle is complete and will give you the option to text another family member informing them they need to put in another load or to fold. They may not like that feature but I love it! You can adjust the temp, including to air only and others. Sanitize feature is hot, high heat that kills 99.9% of three common bacteria. Essential for dish cloths and towels. The damp dry signal set to on will give you a sound and display notification as “items are damp.” Ecoboost selection allows you to increase energy savings by using a slightly lower heat level but will increase drying times by approx 40 minutes. Dryness feature is used for less, normal, or more dry on auto cycles. Accudry evenly dries loads the first time. This is a dryer you want to show your friends. Mine has a smoked, see through glass door but there is optional white finish as well. Bright interior light has slight delay before coming on and turns itself off even if the door remains open. Energy saver. One year limited warranty. Whirlpool, I am throughly impressed.

This dryer really looks modern, the controls are placed more on a 45 degree angle. Easy to read and adjust and just looks unique. Wife loves it, large capacity, easy lint tray to clean. The company that delivered it was so so nice and on time. I highly recommend this product and found all Whirlpool products to be high quality and last for many years. Came with everything needed to connect and use.

The Whirlpool 7.4 cu.ft. 240-volt White Smart Electric Vented Dryer with AccuDry System....We choose this dryer because we love the fact that it is energy efficient . You have a how to dry selection as well as a how to dry cycle selection. For best fabric care you can choose the cycle that best fits the load being dried. The unit also has two sensors to measure the amount of moisture and temp levels to help prevent overdrying and automatically stop the cycle when the load is dry. You also can customize up 35 of your own combinations to get the right type fabric care for whatever your drying. It has a large capacity 7.4 cu.ft. dryer drum. Also the product has a EcoBoost option that uses less heat and energy and extended cycle times for great energy efficiency. Also another great feature is you can control this unit using your smartphone to manage your laundry day...so far this has helped us a lot plus with the lent filter right on the door it makes it easy to keep it cleaned out. The drum is also lighted and will stay lit until the cycle finishes. The glass sealed door makes it easy to see as your load is being dried.... So many great features making this one of the best dryers I've seen to date.
