This is our first brand new dryer and we have been very happy with it. The capacity is awesome and it's really easy to use. The only two down sides I have found are that the moisture sensor is not always accurate (clothes come out damp sometimes) and it's noisier than I expected. But I would recommend this dryer to anyway especially for the price it's a great value.

We've had this dryer since we moved into our new home at the end of September 2011. It was new and unused, installed by a developer. I was quite impressed with the dryer initially. I used the sensor setting and the laundry was always dry at the end of the cycle. My old dryer required me to run the sensor setting at least twice to get everything completely dry, so I thought this was a big improvement.

In mid-November, I went to get my daughter's gym uniform out of the dryer one morning and it was still sopping wet. I thought it was odd, but I restarted the dryer, with the setting on high, hoping that it would be dry enough for her to wear by the time she had to leave. When I went down 30 minutes later to check on it, everything was cold and still very wet. Suddenly it was obvious that the problem was the dryer was no longer heating up. (My daughter went to school with a note apologizing for her lack of a uniform for the day).

We called and made a claim on the warranty and it was repaired in 2 business days. It took the repairman about 10 minutes to fix. He said that the fuses go out quite a bit. That concerned me, but I was hoping that he just meant, in general for his repair work, not in general for the model.

Well, apparently he meant for the model because here we are, less than 3 months later, and the dryer is once again not heating up. This time it's particularly irksome because our 10 month old has the flu and I have piles of laundry covered in vomit that are 1) not being sanitized by the heat in the dryer and 2) are taking 3-4 hours to air dry (sanitized or not, we need some essentials). I'm keeping the loads small so that I can keep things more on the 3 hour side of the line, but the bottom line is this thing has failed me twice in less than 6 months. At the moment, even two stars seems generous, but, as I said, it does work well...when it actually works.

        Comments about Whirlpool White Gas Dryer:

        Our Whirlpool washer and gas dryer have made life with the toddlers so much easier.

        No more washboard and clothes lines. Or clothes pins that keep giving us splinters.

        We save the dryer lint for the birds nests. They really appreciate it after the hard winter.

        The dog barks at the washer if it spins unbalanced, but that's only once in a while.

        Life is good.

              We love the short times with the guidence of the energy saving leaf feature. We also love how the clothes always come out wrinkle free, even with not taking them out right away. This is due to the "wrinkle guard" feature.

                    I bought this dryer a little over 2 months ago and have been very pleased with it. It replaced another Whirpool Dryer I have had for over 20 years. So far go good as the saying goes. I have no complaints.

                                            I love this gas dryer and it minimizes wrinkles in my clothes. The dryer I replaced was also a whirlpool that lasted me 20 years, and I am counting on this one to last just as long.

                                                        We purchased this in early March, and are very pleased so far. The controls are straightforward, and easily accessible. Operation is smooth, and the dryer does its job well.

                                                              I BOUGHT THIS DRYER LAST MONTH AND AM VERY HAPPY WITH IT AS I HAVE ALWAYS BOUGHT WHIRLPOOL IN WASHING MACHINES AND DRYERS FOR YEARS. I DON'T EVEN GO TO THE STORE. I PURCHASE SIMILAR TO WHAT I HAD IN THE PAST, I LOOK ON LINE AND I CALL WHIRLPOOL TO MAKE SURE IT IS A SIMILAR MODEL THEN I CALL THE APPLIANCE STORE AND ORDER IT OVER THE PHONE. BEING DOING THIS FOR YEARS.
