    After much deliberation the set was purchased this summer. The screen display is very clear, the dial spins easily, and it is very simple to choose the options using the buttons below the display. I really love this dryer, and am very happy with the selection. The capacity of the dryer is immense and for the most part it works flawlessly. It is also energy performance rated which is a plus. I would give the product 5 stars except sometimes there is a buzzing noise that takes a few cycles before it is ultra quiet again. My other problem is bulky items need a few cycles before they are dry.

    Have had this unit for 6 weeks and it has already had two service calls!! We installed it and ran 4 small loads with no issues, week later go to use it and nothing, dead. Called service,got tech out, control unit board dead, order part, (another week) service came installed, dryer works again. ran three loads next day. Again no issues, ran flawless. Then four days later dryer is dead, no response. Called service, came out, found the control panel now is bad, order part, now waiting for part and service to again fix it. So recap, we got this unit, ran normal ,died, fixed, ran normal, died, now again we are without use of this unit which is sad cause when it runs, its a fantastic machine but I fear we have a lemon ( I do not use this term easily) and will not be happy with it based on quality. When installing the pedestal, we could hear screws or something inside rattling inside so maybe its a ground wire or something has came loose. Frustration and not having a dryer that works has been most painful. Hope this next service call will be last.

        Comments about Whirlpool Duet WED97HEXL Lunar Silver Electric Dryer:

        I love my new whirlpool dryer. It can dry 1.5 times what my old dryer could AND cuts the drying time in half. I love all of the different drying features, especially the steam cycle and the refresh option. If I leave the clothes in the the dryer and forget about them I can refresh them in 13 minutes and all the wrinkles are gone. Energy savings are amazing! I also love the lint filter in the front. Makes it easy to remember to clean it out after each use.

                Have the dryer since March 2013. Works Great! I especially like the steam feature. Gets the wrinkles out of gently worn slacks of blazers.

                  This dryer has a lot of features but not too many. It is easy to use and dries my clothes perfectly. The wrinkle release option is my favorite as I do not like to iron. I love the option of a reversible door.
