8.8 cu. ft. Top Load High-Efficiency Gas Dryer with Intuitive Touch Controls in White, Steam Refresh is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1323.

However, as others have stated, the lint trap is very poorly designed. it is impossible to clean properly without a great deal of effort. We are going to look for a brush of some sort that may help us. it is bigger inside than most other dryers, and it is very nice looking. If you expect to use the steam, however, you apparently need to be able to hook it up to some water source. Not sure it would have changed my mind, but it may affect others' decision so I state that as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome set This washer/dryer combo is one of the best investments we've made in a long time...really love the steam function, makes clothes and linens smell like they have been dry cleaned!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awesome features/terrible performance The machine Is beautiful. It's features are wonderful. We love the "touch-up" feature. Within 2 days of receiving the machine it displayed an error code and dI'd not work. We had 2 different technicians come and provide 2 different diagnosis. We were without a dryer for approximately 2 months. The dryer has worked fine for approximately 2 months and again stopped working. A technician will be out next week. We have a large family and being without a dryer is difficult. We'version always been satisfied with Whirlpool products but have been extremely dissatisfied and frustrated this dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving my new washer and dryer I bought this item a few weeks ago, I was nervous at first as it was our first big purchase for our new home. I have a 4 year old, very active, ice hockey playing, sweaty boy and a 6ft tall husband whose clothing is very large. It used to take me several loads with our last washer and dryer but I can now fit so much more clothing and be done faster. It's a large machine yet extremely gentle on my clothing as well. I am incredibly happy with my purchase!! Only "complaint" is that my 5ft self struggles to reach all the clothing at the bottom but that's normal in my world.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still under review We bought our "set" 4 months ago and so far it has melted two blankets (the steam clean or sanitize setting is way too HOT and burns the delicate soft blankets) The ETI Board has already failed and had to be replaced prompting us to purchase an extended warranty. Dry times seem average, and the dryer does adjust dry time as the dryer senses the load is dry. All and all even with the problems I am adjusting to the new cycles and dry times and I am happy with our purchase ....providing NOTHING else goes wrong. Review to be continued at one year of ownership. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection After countless online reviews looking for the features and quality i needed, I decided upon my current 8500 whirlpool dryer. This dryer is huge in a good way. It can hold tons of laundry that can be completed in 1 load versus multiple. The steam feature is awesome leaving clothes fresh and clean. Finally , this dryer is dead silent . Sometime I have to look at it just to see if it's on since I can't hear it operating . Overall, I'm very impressed with whirlpools latest dryer and can't wait for another whirlpool appliance hopefully a washer . [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, large caoacity I purchased this dryer to replace another one I had that went out after much use. This dryer has lots of space for the laundry to tumble, a glass door to view it to make sure it is not tangling, and settings for all types of laundry. I never used the settings on my old dryer, just used the same cycle all the time. This dryer is easy to understand and my clothes are benefiting from being dried at the proper temperature.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst dryer ever Purchased in February and at the time thought it was a great purchase for our family of 6, although I was mistaken I'd like to be able to prevent someone else from making a horrible purchase they could barely afford to begin with. The dryer has to be ran 2-3 times to get the clothes fully dry and even then there are wet spots, the sensors in the touch screen keep malfunctioning and can't get a repairman out here because we are out of their service area
