    This is a great dryer. The ability to change settings is great. The dryer tub is very large and holds a full load of jeans with no drying problems. Most of my heavier loads are dry in 50-60 minutes. The ability to select dryer time and the loudness of the timer is a plus. The dryer is quiet and until you hear the timer you hardly know it is running. However, their are a few small design issues that I do not care for. The dryer lint vent leaves lint on the door every time it is pulled out, so the door needs to be wiped clean between loads and the lint trap is hard to clean. The door clip is on the top middle of the opening and clothes catch on it as they are loaded into the dryer. The door opens down which makes it hard to unload clothes into a basket. With limited space the drop down door leaves no room to move around it. It is great if you are folding the clothes right from the dryer. I am just wondering how long till the door wears out from the weight of holding the clothes.

    This dryer is just okay. I know it is supposed to prevent overdrying, however most times I have to run a dry cycle twice to get my laundry completely dry. I do not overload it. Today's example: I shouldn't have to run 2 dry cycles to completely dry 2 towels and a blanket.

    My arthritic hands are not happy.

    By SH57

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WED5550XW White Electric Dryer:

    I am disappointed in this dryer. My main complaint is the amount of button-pushing that I have to do. If I dry mixed loads, the sensor dryer doesn't do a good job, so I often use the timed cycle. I have to push the button (and I do mean push) once for each minute up or down! And before starting the next load, I must power it off and power it on if it hasn't totally finished including the wrinkle shield. More button pushing.

            I find the start-up and cycle end tones obnoxious. The door vibrates when the dryer is running (excess noise). It makes it sound cheep.

                    It would take hours for my clothes/towels to get dry in my old dryer. Now, it only takes a fraction of the time and clothes arent' wrinkled.

                        When we first got this dryer I liked it because it was so much faster than our old one, but it does not always get clothes dry. Except for synthetic fabrics, most things do not get dry unless you set the dryer on the More Dry setting. I don't know about most people, but if I set the dryer to the normal dry setting, I actually expect the clothes to be dry, not still damp. Towels usually take at least two sessions before they actually get dry. I also hate the little tune that plays every time you turn the dryer off and on, especially if people are asleep when I'm using it. The sensor doesn't seem very good, since if you start a partially dried load, the indicator light says the clothes are wet.

                                I use this product 2 t0 3 times a week and since I am a man living alone, living alone it is highly desireable that this appliance be easy to use. I just load the dryer, turn desired time, hit 2 buttons and it performs to my expectations. It is also quite and notifies me when it completed. Highly recommend. I turned in a new one of a different manufacturer to get this one. lThanks
