My new Whirlpool Dryer is working wonderfully. My clothes dry faster than ever before and there is less wear on the fabrics keeping my clothes looking newer, longer. I am happy with my choice!

This Whirlpool dryer is so very nice. Wow, I am impressed! It is BIG! Don't need to go to the laundramat to dry large comforters anymore! It's 8.8 cu. ft. of terrificness! The door IS reversable! I am going to probably do that because of the obvious.. washer on the right, dryer on the left... door swings toward washer... awkward. :) Ok, so I have only been using it for 2 weeks, and have only done basic drying, normal, delicates, blankets, towels, etc. But in that short amount of time, I've used it a lot and I am in love with this machine! It dries a load of towels so quick. The basic setting is like and hour and a half, but I lowered it using the "timed dry" setting and ran them for 20mins. Checked them and they were only damp, so I ran for another 20mins and checked them before it finished and they were dry. So I think it won't need to run as long to dry clothes and save energy. Also, this machine is very quiet. The lint trap is very nice.. by the way it is shaped, it catches the lint inside the curved bottom. All my past dryers had one that was flat and lots of lint got past it and down inside the bottom of the dryer. So far every cycle I clean this tray and look inside, there is nothing that went past it! It has a rack for drying sweaters, delicates, shoes or even your bunny slippers... anything that you don't want to tumble around. I would highly recommend this dryer if you have the space and you are looking for (in my opinion) luxury! FOR ME, this machine makes doing laundry fun!

I had real high hopes for this dryer but I think I might go back to my old one. This unit is quite a bit bigger than my old one and 10 years newer, but honestly I don’t think it works as well. I keep getting error messages to clean the lint trap for better performance (which I do) and then the unit turns off. When in sensing mode, I find half the time the clothes are still damp when the machine turns off. I am a pretty tech savvy guy and I can’t get the machine to connect to my internet. And on the last load I did, I got an error message to call Whirlpool support and the unit stopped. Overall, not what I was hoping for.

First thing to keep in mind: This is a LARGE dryer. I had to enter a landing and descend a staircase. This unit replaced a dryer that was 2 inches narrower and 4 inches shallower - and had a large capacity. Fortunately the dryer door is reversible - so I could take it off to get the dryer in the house. I had to remove the house door as well. Weight is not an issue - it is not heavy. This dryer is quite impressive. The glass front door is large and the opening is very sizable. With the light turned on (yes - during the cycle!) you can see well into the tub. Rear hookup is easy, and the power connection is on the top - so I was able to use a 4ft cord as my plug is up high behind the washer. Overall the unit runs at a consistent noise level - could be noisier than others, but the size of the drum makes for little insulation properties. Still - such a large inside drum I have no complaint on the noise. Settings on the panel are easy to make with the digital "touch" keys. No buttons here, just finger pressure for settings and modes. *The wife likes the unit and that is all that matters - review done!* The auto cycle timing and moisture sensor works well for clothes and household loads. I have had trouble with the auto sensing for jackets and robes - it thinks the cycle is done and they are still damp. Otherwise it works very well. The timed cycles allow me to set and go as my normal habit would be. Lint trap works very well. Pops out and unfolds for easy cleaning. I vacuum out the channel once a week. Pictures: it dwarfs the super capacity plus washer and 7 cubic ft freezer beside it. The load inside is about 3/4 a normal full washer load - tons of space in the dryer. We like it, very happy with this unit.

My old dryer of 13 years finally needed replacement and the Whirlpool smart dryer seemed an ideal substitute. It is large and has tons of features that advanced technology has made possible. For starters the humongous size at almost 9 cu ft can handle drying a king size comforter quite easily. It goes without saying that the dryer is not meant for tight spaces especially when placed next to the large capacity Whirlpool washer. It also needs to be placed a certain distance from the wall for efficient functioning. Fortunately my laundry room is large enough for the pair. Secondly the moisture sensor In the dryer automatically selects the optimal cycle combination after you select what you want to dry from the cycle guide included in the instruction manual. There are also a steam refresh and steam cycle options that can a) be used to steam wrinkles out of already dry clothes b) keep clothes inside the dryer from developing wrinkles or c) reduce static from dried clothes. For using the steam functions the dryer has to be connected to a water source. Mine was connected to the water inlet to my washer using a hose splitter. The dryer comes with a removable rack attachment that can be used to dry shoes or other items that need to be separated from regular clothes. The lint trap is also smart as instead of a flat tray it has a pocket for collecting lint that prevents it from falling out when removed. Being a smart dryer it can be remotely operated with the whirlpool app that is downloadable from the App Store. This functions allows you to customize drying cycles and store them for future use. The app is free for the first three months and then there is a small monthly fee depending on the model. The app is an optional feature and the dryer will function just as well with the manual controls. Finally the Hone Depot installers did an excellent job. I would highly recommend the dryer.

Well it showed up early last week and I installed it myself, will say is a really heavy dryer at 120 pounds. and has more features than some cars. Had this rack inside it & had to know what it was for and finally found in provided info that is for drying sweaters, pillow, tennis shoes and the like, that was a first for me. Also has a water connection (comes with all parts to connect with water hose that is connected to the cold water on washer and is for steam for reducing static & wrinkles. Has a light in the inside of drum. And for all you control from phone folks & other WH-FI buffs has a connection and app to run by phone "but does not load the dryer from the washer over your phone" think you will need a robot for that (lol) I do like the eco-boost setting that uses less power and a little longer dry time. Has a sanitize cycle to kill bacteria, an moisture sensor drying to know when to end drying cycle to prevent over drying. Even has a wrinkle free cycle. For all the people who think clothes coming out washer are 2 wrinkled, or like me who hate to iron. All in all this dryer has about all you can want except fold the clothes which may happen someday the way things are going. But sure will take awhile to try out all the options available. So far is doing a great job and sure like my Whirlpool washer will be a great dryer.

Cool upgrade
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Having the app is nice for reminders to grab clothes, option to wrinkle shield, and to clean out the vent. Other than that the dryer runs smooth. Looking forward to using the steam features.

Abundant Features & Easy to Use
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I absolutely love this dryer. It's got great capacity and my down comforter completely dried the first time! I didn't have to run it again and again as I did with my previous dryer.
