    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.

    Large Capacity!

    By wmcburt

    from Williamsburg, VA, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WED5500 White Electric Dryer:

    We think this appliance is well worth its value! The only issue is they made the top at an angle and it is not a standard height to match the washer. I believe the newer models have this change.

    Surprised by door

    By C sharp

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WED5500 White Electric Dryer:

    I bought the Cabrio without doing any research on dryers. Mine died and I needed on in a hurry. What an awesome purchase! Quick drying time and the pull down door (which is new to me) is a surprisingly nice feature.

    Quick Drying!

    By larry43

    from Bel Air, MD, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WED5500 White Electric Dryer:

    We bought the dryer because our Maytag had "given up the ghost" after 25+ years of service. The technician recommended a Whirlpool. We looked at other brands and settled on the Whirlpool. We were surprised at the size of the drum which seems to help in drying the clothes faster. We are very satisfied with the dryer in the short time we have had it.

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WED5500 White Electric Dryer:

    Love the dryer except that you apparently have to power off between sessions to allow it to reset. Not sure why sensors don't realize a new load. A bit annoying
