    We have had our washer since May and absolutely love it and all of the features that it comes with. This is our first front-loader and it's capacity is great, I wouldn't go back to a top load again after this, and I should also mention that we are able to extend our use of detergent for so long, we have only purchased soap twice since we have bought it almost 6 months ago... The only con we have is that we can't wash our dogs blankets which are too hairy and clog the drain in it... Plus the one time (and last time) we did this we felt scared we were going to ruin the machine, otherwise it's super durable for everything else and absolutely love the steam cycles!

    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.

    Love it!

    By SJSG

    from California, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool Duet WED97HEXL Lunar Silver Electric Dryer:

    We have had the dryer for about a month. It has had both qualitative and economic benefits. The machine drys more efficiently and the laundry emerges with fewer wrinkles and appears to be less stressed. This is especially true for delicate items, which I would never put in my old machine. Now, I dry virtually everything, and have yet to have any but the best results. Not only is the machine much more time efficient, but it also has noticeably reduced our electric bill! One small issue: there is a learning curve. The controls are fairly intuitive, but there are so many options [which I like] that it takes a while to get comfortable with them, especially if you have never used a machine like this. If you are worried about bending over, be sure to get a stand. The height is just perfect with it!

    I love the new Whirlpool dryer we purchased, it is quiet, efficient and faster at drying than the washer is at washing but that's no problem either!

        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.

            You get what you pay for. Although the price may be a little higher than other dryers out there, the quality and functionally is well worth it. We love the design, functionally and performance. Together with the washer, it is a hard combination to bet. If you shop around you can get good deals.

                      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.
