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.

Comments about Whirlpool Duet WGD94HEXW White Gas Dryer:
I FINALLY now enjoy doing the laundry! The quiet efficiency keeps me coming back for more and the customized settings are extremely helpful especially when each family member has different clothes and washing instructions. From heavy duty towels to delicates - they are a dream. I don't even have to iron anymore - a time saving gift, indeed!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Second front loader purchase
from San Jose, CA, United States
We sold our first Whirlpool set after 8 years. This new series is unbelievable as far as features and performance. This time we opted for a gas dryer with the steam option, . It is cheaper to run and the clothes dry faster and come out more fluffy .

Good quality at a good price, many features, .quiet.
from Salt Lake City, UT, United States
I purchased this a month or so ago. Sadly, since the very first load it has not appropriately dispensed the fabric softner. We've had a repair man come and we decided it was best to return and get a different one. Having said all of this, the reason I gave it 4 stars is because I really love how the product works. It has tons of options, I really love the soak mode and it gets my clothes clean! I also love having the drawers under the machines. I will miss this washer and dryer when it gets picked up. Hoping I love my new ones just as much.
Whirlpool 7.4 cu ft Duet Gas Dryer
Extraordinary example of Whirlpool's consistent example of superior quality, efficiency and advanced design! This dryer is one of our favorite appliances in our home. The other is it's partner, the Whirlpool Duet Washer. I am in love with the set.
When Elaine found out I owned Duet's she married me.
from Palm Beach Gardens, FL, United States
Not just one set - I had them in my summer home in North Carolina, as well. When we married and moved to our new home in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida (March 25, 2014) the first major purchase we made was a new set of Duets (April 1, 2014). They are just so wonderful and work so well we just couldn't go another week doing our laundry in the fairly new washer and dryer the sellers left in our new home. No question about it. The Duet's topped our shopping list.
from Monterey, CA, United States
We are really happy with this dryer. It dries clothes in a minimum amount of time. Its quiet and very energy efficient.
