Duet 7.4 cu. ft. Electric Dryer with Steam in White-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 78.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from By far the best dryer on the market This is my second Whirlpool dryer. I had to leave the first dryer in a house I sold. It worked perfectly and looked brand new after seven years of daily use. The new Duet Dryer is perfect. My Husband calls it a spaceship! I adore the design and with the heavy use I put it through, it has been perfect. We love how quiet it is because our laundry room is connected to the kitchen which is open to our main living space. It is a high quality product and I will never purchase another brand of washer or dryer. I did read the instruction book because it is technologically advanced and I wanted to use it right. Easy instructions. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! After having another brand of washing machine for 12 years that sounded more like a combine than a washing machine, it is a refreshing change to have the quiet, fast, large capacity Duet Washer. I love the electronic controls and the auto dispenser for detergent. I use the 30 minute Quick Wash cycle almost all the time and the Duet dryer dries my loads in 30 minutes or less. The Steam feature on the dryer (which joyfully did not require any additional plumbing for the steam feature) is a lifesaver - I haven't used my iron since I purchased my set! Highly, highly recommend the Whirlpool Duet Washer and Dryer set!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a dream! We upgraded from another Whirlpool set because we were "gifting" our former set to our daughter and her husband. I didn't really expect better because we loved our old set. This one is even better. I don't use fabric softener because of all the chemicals, but, somehow, the clothes feel even softer with this new dryer. Totally happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer. I have not had this dryer long enough to verify the dependability. But my past experience with Whirlpool appliances has proven positive, so I am hoping the same holds true for my new Whirlpool dryer. I am happy with the ability to dry fairly large loads in less than 45 minutes. I am very pleased with the fact that Whirlpool now has stainless steel tubs in their dryers. In the past I purchased another brand, because the stainless tub was a priority, and Whirlpool had porcelain. This model is very attractive and has all the features a person could want in a dryer. Very quiet. I hope to be still using this dryer 15 years from now. Definitely pleased and hope to be that way for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fewer wrinkles! It took me a while to get used to this high tech dryer. I have only had the basic basic dryers all my life. But I really love this one. It seemed complicated at first, because I didn't read the instructions first. Now, I wouldn't trade it for any other dryer. I love the LOW and EXTRA LOW settings for delicate fabrics. Needed even more than on the washer is a much louder cycle signal. My washer and dryer are in the basement, and I've missed the sound of the signal a few times, which caused clothes to be wrinkled. It's an easy fix, so I hope the volume is increased significantly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer - goodbye dryer sheets! I'm loving this dryer. We've had it for nearly a year (purchased with matching washer - have them stacked). I'm very pleased with the static reduction feature. I've never been a big fan of dryer sheets, but even less so of static electricity. The "reduce static" setting really works.We've also had wonderful success with the steam refresh. Not long ago, we tried it with a suit of my husband's that had been packed (folded) for a long time. The steam setting made it look freshly pressed.I've not had the problem of balling sheets, except when I'm not careful about how I load the dryer. With any larger items like sheets, it's best to separate them carefully before putting them in the dryer.We've had no service issues at all with the unit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK but Nothing Special I bought this dryer to match the Whirlpool Duet Washing Machine I was buying. I had an old Whirlpool dryer which worked very well but I gave to a family member. This is a costly machine and does not impress. In fact, if you want your clothes truly dry you have no option but to use the timed cycle. Otherwise, it is "designed to keep your laundry in better condition" by not completely drying them. Yes, it is designed to leave your clothes damp. Incredible. Save your money and buy a cheaper model which will dry your laundry.
