This dryer does everything a dryer needs to do and MORE!! When my old dryer died, I was looking for replace it in a hurry - preferably same day delivery. I ended up with this unit because it looked great, matched my Duet washer from last year, and had a great price and immediate delivery! I'm ashamed to admit I didn't even realize it had the STEAM function until it was delivered! (I admit it, I was a Mom in a RUSH!) It is fantastic! It dries huge loads, it is pretty quiet, it is attractive to look at, and the steam function allows me to avoid ironing (which is a chore that I hate!). I don't think that this unit could disappoint. I am so happy that I selected this unit!! (My Background: Purchased original matched Kenmore pair just before my first child was born and he is 22 this year. I'm on washer #4, which is a Whirlpool Duet, and it was dryer #1 that finally died and had to be replaced. I almost bought the pair last year, but held out and I'm sure glad that I waited - this dryer is fantastic!! I have two young men, 18 & 22, both between 6'3" and 6'5" and growing and the jeans loads are brutal on most machines. This drys them like a dream, self calculates the dry time and the shrinkage has been so minimal is blows my mind!! You got the temperature functions and moisture monitors adjusted amazingly well!)

In my opinion, this Duet Washer needs to be mechanically redesigned.
Overall this washer looks good and does a great job when it is in proper working condition. Note: there are only two of us,m so the washer is not used hard as it...Read complete review
Overall this washer looks good and does a great job when it is in proper working condition. Note: there are only two of us,m so the washer is not used hard as it would be for a family with children... We purchased it new in March and at first it worked well, but soon after started to get louder at the spin cycle. The noise at the spin cycle grew and grew until it sounded like a jet taking off. In early September the complete basket and drum were replaced because the bearings are incorporated (welded) to those large parts of the washer. The washer appeared to be fixed and was quiet for about one week and then started to get loud again. We are waiting for the repairman to return to install the new drum and basket parts that are here waiting. These parts that continually need to be replaced are practically the whole washer! These repais and parts are covered by the Whirpool warranty, but if this continues to happen, our warranty will run out and we are going to be stuck with a very large and repeated repair bill. I would NOT recommend this type of front loader washer to anyone unless it was redesigned. Another drawback is that the cycles, even the energy efficient cycles, take very long to run. The clothes ARE clean, but I think it could be done in 3/4 of the time or perhaps even half the time.

from Tennessee, United States
This is our second whirlpool dryer. I was impressed with the improvements from the last. The steam feature is great, the handle is more comfortable, the dryer light can be turned off and on, instead of only when the door is open. There is an eco setting. The lint trap is reinforced so it is stronger. It holds a lot of laundry at one time. We love our duet.
Feeling excellent at dryer

This dryer can detect the wet automatically. Don't worry about the clothes not dry. It can add the time if it detect the clothes still wet. So smart.
better than expected

I bought this a couple months ago, but because we are working on our house yet, I haven't had a chance to use it! It looks great and I am soooooo anxious to use it!
from Bonney Lake, WA, United States
I am so happy with all of the options I have on this dryer. It drys so quickly and does a great job on large comforters and large loads.
from Tulsa OK
Easy to use, no glitches at all so far. Steam feature is fantastic! Will stop when clothes are dry, but you can set to "refresh" if you might not be around to take the clothes out. Looks nice. Bought the pedestal - no bending, it's great.
