    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.

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WED5500 White Electric Dryer:

    We purchased the washer 1 month ago and have been absolutely delighted with the electronic features, the efficiency, and the great job at washing everything from jeans to sheets. The sleek, modern appearance enhances our utility room. Highly recommend this Whirlpool model.

    Great dryer

    By Jim C

    from Drums Pa.

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WED5500 White Electric Dryer:

    We have only owned this dryer for a couple of months but we are already very happy with it. Drying time is fast, doesn't keep running when the clothes are dry saving you money. I would recommend it.

    Technological advancement

    By Rusty78

    from Williamsburg, VA USA

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WED5500 White Electric Dryer:

    This dryer is easy to use, even for the technologically challenged. I particularly like the sensored drying. which avoids over drying the clothes and saves money. The controls are easy to adjust. This dryer takes advantage of the many technological advances and puts them to practical use.

    Better than the last dryer I had.

    By csue

    from Idaho, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WED5500 White Electric Dryer:

    I bought this a few months ago. All the fancy features come short of getting the clothes dry. Timed cycle does a good job. I do like the 15 min touch up it really heats up the clothes. The machine has a thump ..thump noise but I got used to it. The installers did level the machine but it sounds out of balance. I like the look of it and the see thru door.

    So pleased with the control panel that is easy to wipe clean and clear to our many houseguests when they use the dryer.Love the sound of the signals.Don't like the slant of the top as things slide off.
