I have had this Dryer for a little over a week, I love it, my old dryer would take a full day to finish the laundry, I do 4 loads of laundry in about 4 hrs. (twice a week) I like the features, and all the different setting, and the wrinkle shield, that really works and cuts down on using an iron..I also got an extended warrenty just in case, I do this with all the appliences

I have been quite disappointed in this dryer. My clothes do not come out as "wrinkle free" as I think they should. My biggest complaint is that the sensors do not appear to work well at all........I have given up trying to use this feature as most of the time the clothes are not dry. I just use the time feature and make the best of it. I would NOT buy this dryer again or recommend it and am not happy that I will have to "live with it" until it dies!
A lesser inconvenience, but also annoying, is how deep it is- i have a hard time reaching all the way back to get clothes out.

My only "pro" is that it does look nice.

        Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WGD5500 Lunar Silver Gas Dryer:

        I have had the dryer for about 2 months and am happy with it. Not noisy, large load capacity, several choices for heat levels, anti wrinkle system that tumbles the load periodically until removal. My last dryer lasted 45 years. Hope this one does the same!

                    I bought these appliances almost 5 months ago and great experience so far. I like the different settings provided with the equipment and allows me to change easily. As soon as either washing or drying is done the machine makes a nice music which reminds me go get it. Clothes in the drier or wrinkle free.

                          I'm really pleased with my Cabrio gas dryer. It's super fast, energy-efficient, and dries all fabrics correctly.

                                Bought in March 2014 and we have enjoyed very much. The clothes dryer very fast and very soft after drying. Like all the settings on it. Would highly recommend for people to buy this dryer.

                                            The Cabrio high efficiency dryer had largest capacity of those we looked at, and performs well with no problems after 5 months of service.

                                                  I really like the drop down door, it is the main reason we purchased this model. The end of cycle indicator is absolutely not loud enough. We wish that the top of the dryer was flat instead of slanted, everything slides off of it. The controls could be more user friendly. It always powers off at the end of the cycle. It does work a lot better than our old no.

                                                        When I purchased this I did not want to have a lot of bells and whistles that I hardly use. I just wanted easy to use for me and my family And environmental friendly

                                                              have had a few months. don't like that the top is sloped so everything falls off of it especially when it's running. Wish I had noticed that before buying it. Wish I had gotten the basic unit instead of this one with electronic sounds to it. Hoping those features don't end up costing me repairs in the future.
