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.

We bought this 4-5 years ago and do laundry daily and never have had a problem until now when all we needed was a idler pulley. Great dryer for the price
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Wish I hadn't purchased
from Brattleboro Vt
I had my old whirlpool dryer for 25 years without any problems. It finally stopped working and I figured it was smarter to buy new than to start putting money into the old one. What a mistake. I hate this dryer. I have tried every setting and it doesn't dry. I can put a small light load in and spend over an hour to get them dry. To restart the cycle I have to turn the machine off and start over. I have the signal as high as it will go and still can't hear it. The auto dry is nonsense. It will run through the cycle even on more dry and the clothes are just the same as when you started. If I could get my old dryer back I would. I am completely disappointed with this Whirlpool product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

After our dryer was delivered I was skeptical , I'd never see one of these before. But after using it for the first time I was impressed. This dryer is used every day and several times a day. It is the best I've ever had if something goes wrong with our washer I definitely will be purchasing the mate to this one. I would recommend the Cabrio to anyone looking for one.
This is a very simple machine to operate and it's easy to un

I have had this washer and dryer combo for a little over a month now. they have cleaned my clothes better than the other machine by a long shot. The large capacity of both machines means that I won't be using a laundromat anymore either. The room you can put clothes in is not a question.
Dries well and quietly. Love the wrinkle guard!
A friend recommended it and she was right! It is fabulous!Does not cut off to avoid wrinkling and quiet cycle are two of the best features!
Keeps up with my family!
from Kearney, NE, United States
First of all I bought a whirlpool cabrio washer back in 2012 but didn't get the dryer at that time. Well when I finally needed a new dryer and could afford it, I was surprised to find out that I could still get the model that matched my washer!So as my title exclaims it keeps up with my family! I have myself, my husband and 3 daughters (yes they change at least 3 times a day), it is super efficient and gets my clothes dry on the first go round! I wouldn't have enough time to get it all done if it wasn't for its efficiency! It even survived crayons!I love my Whirlpool products and hope to get more in the near future!Sincerely,Rebecca Williamson (wife of Daniel)
Awesome new dryer!
from Acworth, GA, United States
We bought this about 2 months ago and love it. It replaced our old Whirlpool that died. It is much quieter and dries much faster than the old one. If you need one I highly recommend checking this one out!
Only takes 15 minutes to dry my clothes and it's very quiet!
