    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.

      The automatic dry feature works pretty well. The only negative is it seems to build up lint a little faster than our last dryer, but it's not bad.

          Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WED5500 White Electric Dryer:

          this dryer does what it is supposed to do--it dries clothes and provides all the necessary options. One slight drawback is the door requires a pretty hard tug to open--difficult for some older and/or more frail users. I suggest you create a panel of average users, including older women and perhaps handicapped individuals to physically review the appliances prior to introduction into the marketplace.

                  It's been quite a few years since I got a new washer and recently purchased a new washer/dryer. Very pleased with both. Love the features of the washer. Much more sophisticated than my old one. Nice having the wide selection of washing cycles available. And I like that the machines are all American made. Means a lot to me.

                      This new generation dryer was a surprise when it was installed. My old dryer sounded like a cement mixer. This dryer is so quiet, I forget it is running. I especially like the wrinkle cycle. Sometimes you forget to take the clothes out and they get wrinkled. Now if you forget, they are still smooth and not in need to ironing. This energy efficient dryer is a joy to have in our home. When the washer needs replacing, it will be a Whirlpool appliance. This dryer is in our second home in Scottsdale and we have a Whirlpool washer dryer pair in our other home. It pays to stay with a winner.

                              The dryer works very well. The dryer will stop when the clothes are dry and it has a wrinkle guard that is fantastic - no more wrinkled clothes!

                              I do not like that after the dryer is finished drying & on wrinkle feature it shuts off & then comes back on briefly until you take the clothes out. This makes my clothes come out wrinkled so I have to iron them. My previous dryer went on a cool cycle & beeped every ?10 minutes until you took them out & then they were not wrinkled. I tried a lower temperature setting & they then were damp. I would not buy this dryer again for this reason.

                                  I love the sound signals they make doing laundry a little cheery. I also love the wrinkle free feature where it keeps tumbling every so often so the wrinkles don't set in.
