Questions & Answers

Can I add a dryer rack?

If so, what is the model number?

If you would like to purchase one beforehand, then you can contact The Home Depot/ Whirlpool Corporation Hotline at 877.461.3376, Option 2, Option 1. Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool home appliance.

Do I have to have this hooked up to water to use the standard features of the dryer?

The dryer is across the laundry room from the washer and there is no water source at this time for the hookup for the steam cycle on the dryer. We don't need the steamer cycle at this time but I need to know if the dryer can be used without the water being hooked up.
Asked by: Packer
Anonymous, Water does not have to be hooked up to this dryer in order for it to operate. You would only the lose the benefit of the cycles where Steam is an option. Otherwise, you would get the great performance that you expect. Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool home appliance.

Cabrio Platinum 7.6 cu. ft. Electric Dryer with Steam in White is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1026.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grat features on this applince I bought this drier a little over a month ago and were so glad we did. It does not take very long to dry our clothes and you can hardly hear it working. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dryer did not function properly from day 1 When the dryer was delivered only half of the features were functional. After more than 2 weeks, I am still without a properly functional dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm Super Happy This dryer ROCKS! It truly is a step above the 2-dial dryers from 20 years ago. Do not miss the ownership experience.
Date published: 2013-11-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! This dryer is great! We have had our cabrio dyer for about three months now and have not had any problems....we have the matching washer too! I love that it is energy efficient. It had great features on it as well. The delicate cycle has come in handy for some of my nicer work clothes. Also, the steam refresh cycle is amazing! It really helps to get wrinkles out of clothing. I would definitely recommend this dryer! I put that this was difficult to install, but I only say that because we had home depot deliver/install our washer and dryer and they tried to tell us that it wouldn't fit in our laundry room, but our measurements were right and they eventually figured out that it would fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of Money We replaced our very old washer/dryer set with the Cabrio washer/dryer set. The old one worked better. The lint trap barely collects anything, but everything gets caught underneath it and gets stuck. I had to run the dryer 3 times on "sanitize" before it actually dried a load until it was damp. Our dog bed cover came out with all the hair still on it and spread onto the other items in the load. These were also not large loads of laundry. Other loads came out half dry and half wet. If you're going to go for a HE or something with a lot of features, don't waste your time and money on the Cabrio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packed a powerful punch with a sleek shell. We purchased these about 2 months ago. I wanted to wait to review till we had them long enough to see how well they measured up. We had another brands frontloads and loved it. I was kind of hesitant about these because the design. Its spot on. Dryer is great and drys clothes faster then our other set. Hats off to whirlpool on this one. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from dries well Well, it's just a dryer, not sure what to say. We've had it for a couple of months. Everything comes out dried, not wrinkled, and in good shape. We've done bulky loads (think dog beds), shoes, towels, bedding, baby clothes, and so far nothing destroyed. It's big enough that you can put two regular wash loads in at the same time and it will dry them just fine. Works pretty quickly, clothes are dry within 40-50 minutes. There's a steam function but we haven't used it yet. Note, because of the steam function it has to be hooked up to your water supply. Because we had some teeny, tiny leak where the washer hoses were attached, the delivery people wouldn't hook it up. I had to have a plumber come out to fix the leak which cost me some extra $$ I wasn't counting on, so that was a bummer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Dryer! I've now had my new dryer for a few months, and it far has exceeded my expectations! Capacity is HUGE! My comforters fit easily and large loads dry quickly and with minimal wrinkling - HUGE plus! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
