Duet 7.4 cu. ft. Electric Dryer in White


Product Details

Innovative technology helps this Whirlpool Duet 7.4 cu. ft. front load dryer read incoming and outgoing air temperatures while monitoring moisture levels inside the dryer. Advanced Moisture Sensing also helps the drying cycle end when everything is perfectly dry, saving time and energy. Paired with this model's quad baffles, this dryer will even preserve the perfect fit of your favorite clothes. Quad baffles help larger items billow out for better drying, while smaller items keep tumbling without getting stuck riding the baffles. You can even help wrinkles from setting into your clean clothes with the Wrinkle Shield option. It intermittently tumbles clothes after the cycle's end for up to 140 minutes. From Ohio to you, Whirlpool washers and dryers are designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A. Buy with confidence knowing this model is dependably manufactured right at home.

Questions & Answers

Q:What powerr cord do I need to order for this dryer ?
by|Aug 19, 2014
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  denny, The power cord that you need to order will depend on the outlet that you have. Most homes are equipped with a 3 or 4 prong dryer outlet. During the checkout process, you would select either a 3 or 4 prong outlet. The delivery will bring both to ensure accuracy. Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool home appliance.

        Q:is this size comparable to a kenmore heavy duty super capacity dryer?
        by|Jun 9, 2014
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  samantha, This dryer would be compatible for almost any dryer. This Whirlpool dryer is one of the largest capacities available. I would need a Kenmore model number to research and see what capacity your current dryer is, however I believe this dryer would work great. Thank you for viewing this Whirlpool home appliance.

            Appliance repairman is not lonely
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 4 months old, three repairs and no doubt more to come. Thermal fuse keeps on breaking and that's no big deal as it's a $10 part...but to get to it, yikes.I've repaired it each time myself but I hate to think about someone that cannot and needs to call a repairman each time.
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am thrilled with my Whirlpool dryer.We've had it a year and a half and have had no issues at all

                  Dryer 7.3 cu.ft. Duet
                  I purchased this dryer over a year ago. I have 6 people living in my home and this dryer is the best I've ever owned. There is nothing to rip my cloths has wonderful heat settings. This is a top notch dryer and all my friends/family all ready know. I really would buy another if you discontinue this model . Regards Beth Denish.

                    I bought this in July. I couldn't believe I just need to touch the bottons to start. Is very easy to manage and I like every feature that this dryer has. Very modern for a very good price.

                            Great Value!
                            I bought this as my Valentine present ... I know, crazy. Well, it's been wonderful. My family thinks I'm crazy because I don't mind doing the laundry now. I'm 4' 11" so with the older model I had, I would almost fall into the washer trying to get clothes out. Now I just throw them from one machine into the other. The washer and dryer are very easy to operate. Being front loaders also gives me more "countertop" space in order to fold the laundry.

                              I really like that they are made in American. Also the cyclecomplete sound is quite pleasant.
