Product Overview

Preserve the perfect fit of all your favorite clothes with the large capacity of the Whirlpool 7.4 cu. ft. HE gas dryer, which virtually eliminates shrinking and overdrying with Advanced Moisture Sensing. Three sensors monitor temperature and moisture levels in the dryer to ensure the dry cycle stops when everything is perfectly dry. The drum's stainless steel construction presents a smooth surface that helps deliver ultimate gentleness by cradling clothes as they tumble, while four shorter, staggered baffles increase the effectiveness of the dryer and promote better, more even tumbling. Tap Touch controls allow direct access to cycles and options like the EcoBoost option, and their sleek appearance enhances the appeal of any space.
  • 7.4 cu. ft. capacity accommodates large loads
  • 10 cycles: Timed Dry, Quick Dry, Casual (Perm Press), Delicates, Normal, Bulky, Heavy Duty, Towels (Cotton), Sanitize and Steam Refresh to provide great drying performance
  • Stainless steel drum helps prevent odors, and helps protect delicate fabrics from snagging
  • Tap Touch control interface brings high-tech style to your laundry room. It allows direct access to dryer functions, and its sleek appearance enhances the appeal of any space
  • Quick Refresh Steam Cycle tumbles 2-5 items in the dryer, letting steam technology relax wrinkles and remove odors. In just 15 minutes, clothes go from lying there to ready-to-wear
  • 5 temperature settings to handle variety of fabrics -- delicate synthetics to heavyweight cotton
  • Advanced Moisture Sensing monitors moisture levels inside the dryer. This helps the drying cycle end when everything is perfectly dry, saving time and energy and helping to prevent overdrying
  • Quiet Dry Plus Noise Reduction System. Sound-absorbing materials are strategically placed around the dryer drum to help reduce operational noise
  • Wrinkle Shield with steam option, helps keep wrinkles from setting in to clean clothes with intermittent tumbling after the dryer cycle ends. The process lasts for up to 140 minutes or until you open the dryer door
  • Adjustable End-of-Cycle signal alerts you when the drying cycle has ended. Damp Dry signal, when selected, will sound when the load is still damp, not completely dry
  • Optional, separately purchased, laundry pedestal, XHPC155, enhances ease of use
  • Stackable design and 4-way venting options provide increased installation choices; separately purchase stacking kit W1298318RP and venting kit W1323246
  • EcoBoost option saves energy by using a portion of the dryer's dual heating element and extending cycle time. You’ll get great drying performance while saving money on utility bills
  • Sanitize cycle is a long cycle with high heat, which has been proven to reduce household bacteria
  • Dryer Duct is required for installation and will be offered separately during appliance checkout

Customer Reviews

Duet 7.4 cu. ft. Gas Dryer with Steam in White-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from still waiting for perfection guess I wanted it to be perfect.. the sensor feature for dryness isn't accurate, clothes come out damp in spots. shouldn't have to use the bulky option for 6-7 tshirts. would like it to continue to tumble until I can get to the clothes, don't like that it stops and wrinkling sets in, hard to hear the signal when done, so don't always get there in time. maybe I'll come to like it as time goes on [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Dryer I have been using the drying for over a month now and it is fantastic and drys exactly the way I want it too. I love the different selections of drying mode. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful appliances I have had the matching washer/dryer for almost 2 years now and they are superb. No issues with the appliances, easy to use controls, and they are quite quiet. Also, you can fit a really big load to minimize the number of loads washed. I highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Digital and Appliances are a stupid idea While I understand why companies have gone to digital with appliances it is the single biggest complaint I have about all of them. This one is no different. I don't want an appliance that thinks for itself. Case in point. If you set the dryer to dry a load and let it monitor itself for moisture(part of the energy efficiency programming) they often won't get dry. A dryer that won't dry clothes is an engineering and design fail. For the most part you have to set the dryer to a set time and by pass all of the energy efficiency settings for it to be a slam dunk. And I know what will be the first thing to fail on this unit...the circuit board or control unit that controls all functions. My last dryer lasted about 30 years, I expect this thing to last about 10 at the most. Digital sucks...analogue is king in appliances. This unit is in my business and will be used several times a day for towels only so it will be interesting to see how it last over the long haul. I bought it not because I had a choice but rather it was one of the only units at the store they had in stock, my choice would have been no frills. I would never recommend any appliance with digital or computer control functions, but try finding one in modern times without. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Petformance I have owned the dryer 3 months now and I only like it more. I have its matching washer too. The dryer is so quiet and efficient. I am always happy to hear it's pretty song. The inside light is a brilliant innovation. The clothes are always dry, never needing a redo so the sensors work great. I just used the steam feature for my new napkins which I discovered are not permanent press. This crumpled mass of linen and cotton came out smooth and foldable. I was going to scream if I had to start ironing my daily use napkins but the dryer saved my voice. I love this dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consumer's Report Top Buy Christie's Appliances gave us a great deal.Electric dryers are like belly buttons, everybody has one. To find a good gas dryer is a lot harder. The Whirlpool Duet fills the bill - quiet & efficient. Don't forget the companion washer for the two units compliment each other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can you even imagine better? Whirlpool never ceases to satisfy me. I go to buy a good dryer to do a good job for a good price. I get a great dryer that does a great job at a great price. I have all the features I want and extras that I love. I always had electric but switched to gas because it is more efficient. I find no other difference between these two quality products. Whirlpool is always on top for bringing innovations to their customers. If you can even imagine better, just watch and it will come...from Whirlpool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far the operation and noise level have been top notch. We Delivery met our needs we needed without much delay,We have been married over thirty years and have not found anyfeature to be unsatisfactory, Our youngest just bought his first homeand if we get a nice tax return we are thinking about buying them thesame pair as they have birthdays in January and February and have large college debt so purchasing a nice pair like this would not be within financial reach for them, They are much quieter than are last set and are great at getting our clothes clean.
