    We bought this dryer about 7 month ago. My previous Dryer took about 2 cycles to completely dry a load of clothes. This dryer is amazing! It dries quietly and quickly. I can dry a large load of towels in about 30-40 minutes. This dryer is a great energy saver because it cuts off when it senses the clothes are dry. It also has the wrinkle free option so it will continue to toss your clothes after drying to help prevent wrinkles. It has a very easy to use panel that gives you several options for drying. This dryer has an interior light so it makes it easy to search for that 1 item you may be looking for. I would highly recommend this dryer if you are looking for fast drying, easy to use, and large capacity!

    My wife and I bought this dryer as one of our first purchases together. Ever since we bought it we have had problems with it not fully drying our clothes. We can put one medium sized blanket in and set the timer to 70 minutes (the max it will set to) and the blanket will still be damp when the dryer "finishes". This dryer also waited until it was just outside of its manufacturers warranty (13 months on a 12 month warranty) before it stopped working altogether. It will still light up and power on but it does not tumble or make any attempt to dry clothes now. When I press start it just clicks.

    I kept putting off buying a new dryer and after I got this one I just wished that I had done it sooner. This one is so much more advanced than my old one and I love it.

    My husband and I bought the Whirlpool Cabrio washer and dryer for our new home. We are so happy with both products. Our laundry room is on the main level of our home and the design and modern look of the units is so pleasing on the eye.

    Smart Dryer

    By Jodyv

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WED5500 White Electric Dryer:

    How wonderful to have a dryer that can select the proper drying cycle for any particular load. No guessing anymore. No matter how large the load and I can stuff it, everything comes out fluffy and dry. Love my new Whirlpool dryer.

    Had this a couple months. Works great, and seems much quieter than the one we replaced which was about 10 years old.
