We have had this dryer only about a month. So far, it is operating well. And it is extremely quiet in operation. The outside of the cabinet front and sides never get more than warm. For the most part, the fully automatic setting does well. Touch-up and steam settings are OK, but if you're fastidious, you'll want to break out the iron -- cycles stop the tumbling and signal the end well before clothes are cool, so if you don't hop to it, things can settle and wrinkle. The manually timed setting is curious and not very useful. It is not actually fully manual and it stops when clothes are damp, not dry. Apparently, Whirlpool is not going to change this design decision... it's been mentioned by many users for a couple of years at least. The design of the connection to the pedestal is neatly simple. If you install this yourself, you set the dryer and pedestal on their sides, connect them up, then raise the unit by tilting it up. The combined units are heavy and you really need 2 people to get it on its feet. Other reviews of this type of cabinet mention that tumbling clothes can open the door. Our door has significant resistance to opening -- so this hasn't happened to us. We were also scrupulous about leveling the dryer... spent at least half an hour on this aspect. If the dryer is tipped toward the front and full of wet towels, you can expect significant pressures on the door. Have your installer demonstrate to you (with a level) that it's been done right, as would be an easy place to cut corners and save time. If you do install this yourself, the instructions are comprehensive and clear. Operationally, this model has many control settings and thousands of combinatorial possibilities for cycle types and objectives. You might want either to (a) go on a washing marathon and try out all sorts of settings or (b) just use automatic. We spent a little while on plan A, but plan B is pretty much what settled out as useful and effective. Much design effort has been put into sounds (chimes), the soft ramp-up and dim-down of the interior light, and esthetics. It's not clear to us that these contribute to dryer operation, but it does give the unit a kind of R2D2 charm.

Like the dryer but is loud
Really like the features on the dryer, but have had the repair men out six times because of the loudness of it. It sounded like a genorator the first time we turned it...Read complete review
Really like the features on the dryer, but have had the repair men out six times because of the loudness of it. It sounded like a genorator the first time we turned it on! They have replaced so many parts on it and its better, but still has an aweful rattle the longer it runs. They have ordered more parts & we are waiting. We have been dealing with this for eight months,hoping it gets fixed before the year warranty runs out. Maybe we just got a lemon! The normal cycle has a sensor on it so the dryer knows when the clothes are dry, but sometimes the dryer turns off & the clothes are not fully dry.

I was very anxious to be able to switch back to a gas dryer and wanted to try the steam feature to help eliminate wrinkles in sheets and pillow cases.The drying capabilities of the machine are good but it takes a while to figure out what settings to use and how to use them.I am not too impressed with the steam feature but will experiment with it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
By the bald one

we replaced a electric model and the lighter unit was cracked and quit working after 1 month. haven't seen the utility bills to see if it was worth it.

Not crazy over the way this dryer dries. Very often I will need to put the dryer on for a couple of cycle (especially with towels and linens) and that is a waste of time and energy.
GREAT FEATURES. MY WIFE LOVES IT.

WE GOT THESE MACHINES A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO. WE ARE TRULY HAPPY WITH THEM.
from NV, United States
We bought this a month ago and at the time I was not interested in the steam. My husband went out bought the proper connections and after using it the first time, I will never go without it. I Love It!!! My clothes come out with hardly any wrinkles.

from Issaquah wa
We bought this dryer to replace our old stackable. We live on a lake and do lots of beach towels. This drier is huge. Holds lots of laundry. It's fast and the laundry is always dry at the end of the cycle
BEST Dryer I have ever owned or used!!
from San Fernando Valley, CA
Bought this one month ago. I could not be happier with my purchase. Drys quicker and more completely than any dryer I have ever used. Even works with "mixed" loads. Has more "Bells-and-Whistles" than most will ever use.
Easy to use.
from Lancaster, CA, United States
I've had my Whirlpool Dryer for about 3 mounths now and I love it. My cloths come out so nice every time. I love the front loading feature so much, it makes it so much easier to use.
