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.

By Irene and Dwayne
When we bought our new Whirlpool Duet we were wowed by its tremendous performance. We've noticed a new life in our clothes and bath towels. They are so much more fluffier when they come out of our new dryer. We can't say enough about our Whirlpool Duet Set. Terrific manufacturing. We've already noticed a savings in our energy bills. We've only owned our New Whirlpool Duet Set for less than 3 months. Outstanding remarkable performance that I would highly recommend to my fellow consumers.

Our old but dependable dryer was getting to where it wasn't so dependable anymore so we did some research and chose this one as a 'bang for the buck' purchase. Glad we did. It handles everything we throw in it and the different dry cycles are matched perfectly to what they do. We're liking the less wear/tear on the clothes and the large capacity means one-time and we're done!

The washer is very quiet and runs well. They look great and with the pedestal option and it really helps to add storage.
What a great machine!

I had to replace a 12 year old washer that was broken, and my dryer was getting on in years (20) so I decided to replace them both. At first I was hesitant, but now I'm glad I did! The capacity is much larger, yet the dry time is quicker! The steam option is amazing too, as is the no wrinkle option for delicates. There's a lot of buttons but don't worry it's easy to use. I was very impressed with the quality of the build, and the smooth, and quiet operations. Glad I did replace them both at the same time. Great product it's amazing what a dryer can do!
Reliability and performance is great!

We bought these in April and have enjoyed the performance, especially how quite they are.

I bought the Duet dryer to match the front load washer. I love using this dryer. My clothes come out of the dryer feeling very soft with few wrinkles. The steam cycle works well softening wrinkled shirts and slacks when you need this feature.
