    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:

    I bought this washer about 3 months ago and I absolutely love it. I love laundry in general, which is weird enough, but I appreciate the size capacity and the number of cycles and settings.

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WED5500 White Electric Dryer:

    Great dryer! Love the Eco-friendly choices. Easy lint cleaning, love the drum light with the widow in the door. Dries well and lets you know when the clothes are dry and ready to remove. It is actually fun to use.

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WED5500 White Electric Dryer:

    We needed to replace our dryer immediately as our previous one stopped working. We have some limitations on space and this dryer has been an excellent fit.

    very quiet

    By semiprecious stone

    from Palm Coast, FL, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WED5500 White Electric Dryer:

    I bought this dryer in September of 2014 and am very satisfied with its performance. It shows me exactly how much time it will run per load which keeps me from running back and forth to check and see if finished. It is also very quiet.

    GOT DA LUV IT!

    By Barbie girl

    from Bremerton, WA, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WED5500 White Electric Dryer:

    We bought this Whirlpool Cabrio Electric Dryer in Nov 2014, with some reservations as it didn't match our Washer, that may sound silly But I have never owned a new washer & Dryer set & because we had not bought them at the same time I went back & forth as to match our few month old washer or buy the whirlpool with features I wanted, we are so glad we did as I absolutely LOVE it! There are very few dryers that have the door that opens downward, this has it and it acts as a shelf so nice & helpful, it dries our clothes faster then we can wash Love the sanitizer feature and the happy little tone it sounds when your clothes are dry. Holds a ton of clothes,It's also nice to see your clothes through the window so you can tell your kids to go get there laundry out that they left in the dryer with out opening up the door. Seriously Love it makes me Happy now to do laundry, well almost!
