Where does this get the water for the steam function? Does it have a tank or does it need to be connected to a water line?
Asked by: JD
From the whirlpool response, you would use the y connector to access the cold water like for your washer. Makes sense but it says "The dryer must be connected to the cold water faucet using the new inlet hoses. Do not use old hoses." Does that mean I have to buy new hoses? There is only a short hose that comes with it and the manual says to get 5' hose. When I purchased and selected the installation, there was no option to add hoses. Do I need new hose or no?

I'm concerned about the dryer door. The display model is VERY hard to open and close. Other brands are quiet and soft to close. Is this how it will be, or is this just a display problem?

8.8 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Electric Dryer with Intuitive Touch Controls in White, Steam Refresh is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1839.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This thing is HUGE! I've had this for a couple of weeks so not much use so far. The touch options are easy to use. The lint trap reminds you to check it before each use. I've never heard the end of cycle signal so I'll have to check the use and care guide to see what's going on there. I suspect this dryer is large enough to dry every piece of clothing in my house -- I practically have to crawl inside of it to reach everything to pull it out. I've used the steam refresh option a couple of times to get wrinkles out and it works well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The lint removal is fantastic. after each load, with the amount left in the lint trap, you can make into a sweater. It fits a king sized comforter with fitted and topsheets, pillow shams and bed shams. It deep cleans. The comforter has it's new luster back. Fantastic. I previously owned an LG front loader in an urban apartment. It was great, but had lots of settings that I never used. now, with a house and room for a top loader, I love the way everything cleans in this machine. The 22 minute steam feature has saved me from having to iron most of my business clothes. The washing machine that pairs wit this is fantastic. Grass stains from golfing came out in the first wash. Fantastic pair of equipment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good so far, thank GOD! Dear LORD, my fingers have been crossed the entire time of deciding to make this purchase. I went with Whirlpool because they are a reputable company. So far so good with my dryer. I like that it's quiet and senses the loads and adjusts the dryer time while it's running. That impresses me. I have had this dryer a few weeks now, and although it's probably to early to call, I have run a fair amount of dryer loads in this short period of time, and have had no issues. I would recommend this dryer from Whirlpool. Again thank GOD for the experienced intelligent people at Whirlpool. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dryer doesn't Dry We bought this oversize dryer so that we had the ability to do heavier items like king size blankets and beach towels. Unfortunately, it takes 2 hours to dry any of these items. I have tried everything from putting a light load in both with and without a dry towel or thin blanket to absorb some of the damp to heavier loads doing the same thing. No difference in performance overall. Certainly not the energy saver it claims to be. Also, we bought this item in June and here it is November and I am still waiting for the extra rack. Very disappointed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall very good dryer! I bought this dryer about a month ago. I'm loving the different features! Also I love the cycle that fluffs your clothes if I can't get to them right after the load is done drying! The one and only complaint I have only is that if I have a small loss to dry all the clothes get tumbled to the front of the dryer. I've had a dryer sheet and small article of cloth get stuck by the lint catcher. Overall I love this dryer, and the amount it holds is great! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from size & ease of use It holds so very much, comforters, blankets,rugs etc. I love it. Love the settings.Non-wrinkled setting, so important to me. It fluffs the clothing intermittently, so that they don't get wrinkled. Many different heat settings. It's such a pleasure to have such control over the drying of my clothes. Saves me precious time on my Laundry Day. It has simplified my Laundry Day. Matches my décor. Adds elegance to my Laundry Room. It's a KEEPER!
