          Received 2 Defective Units in a Row
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We got this dryer and it stopped working after 1 use. The front LED/Button display stopped working and we couldn't turn it on. It wasn't a power issue as the power was tested and the dyer vent was clean. The unit front LED/Button display was steaming up with condensation. We got it replaced and the same thing happened with the 2nd unit. Had to have a tech come out and replace the front LED/Button display on the 2nd unit. So far 2 of 2 have not worked properly and now we are concerned we're going to have issues in the future.

            Stylish High-Tech
            I was excited to finally receive this dryer. Right off the get go I enjoyed the size and the fact that it was stackable. The looks are very sleek and modern as well. Installation took 5 minutes and it was very easy. Operating the dryer was a bit of a learning curve. It seems as if Whirlpool has over engineered the functionality of the dryer in what seems to be the size vs the electronics. It took time to learn how each function worked to get the items to dry properly. For example, if I had a medium to small load; it would at times prematurely stop drying my clothes when in actuality the clothes were not dry as they should have been. The dryer works best when you have full loads and functions at its peak performance then. When speaking to a certified Whirlpool technician at work about it he explained to me that when you have small loads in big dryers the sensors tend to prematurely identify the load as dried. This was exactly my scenario. Long story short, they don't make them like they used to! To add, I was somewhat disappointed that there was no LED light built into the dryer. That was my wife's biggest con as far as her feedback goes. She added by saying that for such an expensive, modernized dryer you think that they would have added a simple LED light. In our scenario, every bit of light that we can get in our basement helps. After 3 to 4 weeks of use, we have finally learned the bells and whistles of the dryer and are getting better results than when we first started. I would recommend this dryer, but I would definitely air on the side of caution. Overall, I gave it 3 stars because of the challenges that I had and the fact that there is no light in the dryer.

            Super Dryer
            Whirlpool and The Home Depot offer one great Dryer ! Delivery and install team was great to work with ! This Dryer has fabric settings, temperature settings for almost all of your laundry needs. The steam setting is perfect for shirts ext. you forget and need to fix wrinkles quickly ! (see photos) The door and the opening are both round and easy to put laundry in and take out. The control panel and timer are well lit and big enough for older eyes. I am very happy with it and it has settings that take from 1 hour to 3 plus to save energy !!

            Beautiful dryer with great features
            We have been able to run several loads and many different types of clothes in this dryer. It has done an excellent job with all of them. The dryness sensing of the clothing is a great feature to help avoid running too long and wasting time and energy. I really like the steam feature to help my button up shirts come out looking fresh and only needing minimal ironing. The display is very large, bright, and easy to read. The buttons are very large and easy to read and select the desired cycle. I also appreciate the ability to customize the cycle if I so desire. The extra-large capacity makes a big difference with larger loads, allowing more space between the clothes which allows for more airflow and better drying. You can change the signal volume, but the feature is a little awkward to use. You must hold a button down for a few seconds and then the display starts to cycle the volume options. You have to let go at just the exact volume you want. It also does not come with a printed user manual – but it does come with an installation guide which was helpful. Overall, it does a great job of drying the clothes and I really like the look of it.

            Works ok, average
            Received unit in good packaging. I had to install the 3 wire plug option for my household. The unit did include a 4 wire plug. I purchased a seperate Y connector and 6 foot hose for the dryer water connection. It says to use cold water, so we hooked it up that way. The vent connection was easy. The dryer itself is a no frills unit. The buttons are basic and easy to read...touch style board. The flat door is nice for space saving compared to the old style front load units. There is no internal light, that is apparently an option. Disappointing as that is a basic feature on most units. There were no operating instructions for the unit. We are still guessing at optimum drying conditions. At times, it takes 2 to 3 times to get the clothes dry. We are still experimenting with different combinations but at this point we like the old unit better by comparison. Rating, 4 stars for looks, 3 for function. The steam function is nice and is the deciding factor why we are keeping this unit.

            Love this dryer!
            This 7.4 cu. ft. Vented Electric Dryer from Whirlpool is fantastic. Our old gas dryer died and we decided to go with a new electric dryer. Our gas bills were really high so we opted to go electric because we have solar. My favorite feature of this dryer is the steam refresh feature. I'm one of those people that regularly forgets to take the laundry out of the dryer and has to run another cycle for a while to get the wrinkles out. The steam refresh feature runs the dryer for 20 minutes while introducing steam to get the wrinkles out. It works really well. The wrinkle shield feature is great also, because it will run the dryer without heat for additional time after the original drying cycle to make sure the clothes don't sit and wrinkle. You can also run a steam feature during that additional time if you want even more wrinkle protection. The dryer has a water input on the back which is pig-tailed off the water line to the washer. I like that he lint trap is located inside the dryer door instead of on top like my old dryer. This seems to keep the area more clean, and it peels off the trap pretty easy. And there's only one thing about it that I don't like and it's the fact that there isn't a light installed inside the drum. I miss this from my old dryer. I am very satisfied with my purchase, however, if I were to do it again I would probably spend the extra money to get it Wi-Fi enabled. If I could get updates on my phone I probably wouldn't let the load sit for so long.

            Lots of cycles
            My old dryer was simple, just select a cycle and push start. This one can be that simple, but it provides many, many more options. The Cycles are broken into to parts. What do you need to dry and how do you want it dried. First the "What" - Regular, Delicates, Bulky Items, Whites, Colors and Towels. Next the "How" - Normal, Wrinkle Control, Heavy Duty, Sanitize, Timed Dry and Quick. There are 5 Temperature settings - High, Medium, Low, Extra Low and Air Dry. Additional Options are Wrinkle Shield, Steam Refresh, Cycle Signal, Damp Dry Signal, Reduce Static, Control Lock and EcoBoost. I especially like the reduce static for winter time. The EcoBoost uses a lower temperature and longer cycle time to reduce electricity usage. The LED Display provides status information such as: Sensing, Wet, Damp, Cool Down, Check Vent, Control Lock and END. The Sanitize cycle can eliminate 99.9% of common household bacteria. The 7.4 Cu. Ft. size is big enough for my King Comforter. Since my old dryer had a steam option, I know I will use it as it really helps when you forget to empty the dryer when I should. The dryer does not come with the 2 foot extension hose, Y-Connector and 5 foot hose for the steam option. The manual is rather sparse, but sufficient for most users and refers you to online documentation for more detailed information. The signal (Beeps) are not as loud as I would like, even when set as loud as possible. This dryer is not smart home enabled. Installation was rather standard for a dryer. Since this is a Steam model, I had to disconnect the cold water hose for the washing machine and add the above mentioned extension hose and Y-Connector. The door opens left-to-right and is reversible. The door reversing process is 13-14 steps depending upon the model. I opted to put the dryer on the right side and use 90 degree elbows for the vent. For me that was easier and the vent length is well below the maximum with the additional elbows for this installation. The dryer is stackable (optional kit required), available in two colors, White and Chrome Shadow. A matching pedestal is also available.

            Efficient
            This review is for the Whirlpool electric dryer the model number is WED6605MC. The capacity on this 7.4 cu ft. Is astounding. You can get a king size comforter in there and it dries efficiently! This dryer has offset wings inside so the clothes tumble and move around continually. So many settings but not enough to be overwhelming . You can just set by color and go. A feature that I found different was you can change the way the door swings open to the other side! I personally love the finish and the touch pad. If you choose to set it up also has a steaming option. Easy to use and extremely efficient. Highly satisfied with this Whirlpool dryer. 🙂 Oh and the lint screen is super easy to remove and clean.

            LOTS of options
            This is a really nice dryer with LOTS of options. The only downside to it is that you need to supply your own power cord (and install it), which is something we’re generally not used to doing. Whirlpool includes very detailed, thorough and easy to follow instructions on how to attach the plug you purchase, even though they advise you hire an electrician. The directions have lots of pictures as well as various install options if you have different power sources. We did it ourselves with no problem at all. You will also need to buy a water line in order to take advantage of the steam function. It does come with a metal vent hose which is easily installed. You will need plumber’s tape, a screwdriver and a crescent wrench to install this dryer. It comes with leveling feet which are also easily installed. The dryer comes carefully packed in a box measuring 30” X 32” X 41” and it fit in the back of a pickup truck (with shell on the back) by lying the box on its side. This did not create any problems. The dryer itself measures 27” wide, 3 & 1/8” tall and 31” deep. The door is circular and measures about 25” in diameter. The control panel rises about 3.5” above the top of the machine. The door swings up and shut easily and the lint catcher is located at the bottom of the door’s opening and easily pulls out for cleaning. The dryer is very quiet and with no noticeable vibration. It has MANY different functions from which to choose. Everything we put in was dried without damage and clothes came out soft, not stiff. There’s a terrific “steam” function which we love. It also has an option that will use less heat “EcoBoost” (and therefore less energy), but it will take the clothes a little longer to dry. Without using the EcoBoost, the towels seem to take about 1 hr & 15 min to dry and my regular clothes about 50 min to dry. The buttons are sensitive to the touch and I like the “chime” sound. When you start it, there’s a 3-2-1 count down. I’ve never seen that before and I like it.
