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.

I have had my dryer for a month and it is working fine. It is simple, which is exactly what I wanted, and dries the clothes nicely. No problems at all.

does not dry

By 

from Texas

Comments about Whirlpool Duet WED97HEXR Cranberry Electric Dryer:

Having an issue with this dryer not drying. runs 2-3 cycles before clothes are dry. the preset cycles turn off before the clothes dry so have to use the timed cycle. It is less than 2 years old.

Not A Good Priduct

By 

from Oklahoma City OK

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Duet WED97HEXR Cranberry Electric Dryer:

Do not like this dryer and I am sorry I bought it.
It has been replaced once within the first month.
The dryer shuts off too quickly and sometimes will shut off as you push the start button.
On -thenimmediately off.
Will NEVER but another Whirlpool product again
I tell everyone not to buy this.
The chime sounds silly too
All categories rated poor. Of course, this part of the rating page doesn't work either,

Comments about Whirlpool Duet WED97HEXR Cranberry Electric Dryer:

Bought Dryer & Washer a month ago. While I am still trying to learn the best cycles to use for various types of laundry, I believe the dryer will fit my needs very well. I'm not sure how often I would use the "steam cycle", but hope to find a use for it eventually.

Love my newDuet® High Efficiency Electric Dryer With Steam

By 

from Hillsdale, IL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Duet WED97HEXR Cranberry Electric Dryer:

I love my new Duet® High Efficiency Electric Dryer With Steam Cycles. I purchased my first Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer over 13 years ago. I had a concern with ordors in my clothes and towels. My new set has been improved and both my new washer and dryer have steam and so far I love them both. I've had my new ones for a month or so.

Comments about Whirlpool Duet WED97HEXR Cranberry Electric Dryer:

We are very happy with our dryer purchase. I have two kid under two so I am doing laundry daily. I love how fast it dries all the clothing. My favorite thing, is that you can adjust the temperature and time. This has helped greatly eliminate shrinkage.
