      Great looking dryer with size and features!
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love the sleek look of this dryer on top of lists of functions it can perform in between different products and clothings. I am happy that it was able to dry perfectly my comforter and a small soft rug that I usually get dry cleaned. 7.4 cu.ft is a perfect size also for a large house hold items like comforters, curtains, etc..

        Dry every time
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have owned this for about five weeks now. I am very pleased with it. My clothes are dry every time. The settings are easy to choose and use.

          Stacked set
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought a set that has an option to sit side by side or stack to save space. I really like all the extra room with them stacked. But I was surprised when I saw that a normal load take 1 hour and 27 minutes to dry! WOW I will be doing laundry all day long at that rate!

            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have owned the dryer for less than a month and we already have to have a service technician come out. Water is getting behind the control board and causing dryer not to stay on. We are a little disappointed in the quality. The dryer is great when it decides to work.

                Great Dryer
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Purchased dryer less than two weeks and it’s great! It’s a beautiful appliance to look at and easy to operate. I appreciate the variety of drying options , how quite it is and the count down feature to start after choosing drying setting. Very happy and would definitely recommend to others searching for a good quality dryer.

                  Fantastic set!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have had our new Whirlpool washer and dryer set for a few weeks now and are very happy with them both! The dryer can handle all sizes of loads, bigger blankets, and towels. We love the sleek design. The only thing we've noticed is if we dry a load on the Eco setting, it doesn't get dry after one try so we have to re-run it again. Very happy with it overall!

                    Elegant and sleek
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I originally wanted to purchase a stainless steel washer and dryer but guided by price and reviews we decided on the whirlpool set in black and white and let me tell you they look so nice better than I could ever imagine! Besides looking amazing in our home they work great, are quiet, and always look clean even though our dogs area is next to them. Just amazing!!
