When our dryer of 14 yrs stopped working we went shopping. Looking only to replace the dryer at first we decided to replace them both. After many stores and salesman we choose the whirlpool front loader set. Working with a small laundry room,the thought of these full size machines that were larger than the set prior meant even less room. Then the sales man stated these are stackable . We always wanted stackables for the extra room they would provide but those models were small capacity and very pricey. We are very happy with our front loader whirlpool set. Oh did I mention I
have even more space than before and a new four shelf storage unit.

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.

        Just received my new dryer replacing a 10 year old Duet. Very quiet and dries quickly. But I miss the interior light that my old dryer had. Sure wish I had noticed this before buying. I would have looked for a model with the interior light.

              This is the second set of Whirlpool Duets. I wore out the last set after 11+ years! I wouldn't go back to a top loader--these are less expensive to use, use less water and my septic system thinks they are great! It takes a lot less soap as well!

                          In my 43 yrs of marriage and raising 2 kids I have done a considerable amount of laundry. This washer and dryer is the best ever. My daughter also has a whirlpool front load for her family of 6.

                                Only had it 1 month but, does everything I wanted and then some. I do expect it to last a long time because of the Whirlpool name.

                                      I have owned my whirlpool duet dryer for just over a year and i would buy it again ( although I hope I do not have to!). The best feature for me is the auto sensor that monitors the dryness of the clothes.

                                                  I bought this dryer a few weeks ago and our drying time for our daily washing has been reduced at least 40% we are so happy with it. the time we save and electricity we save each week could let us enjoy a dinner out
