    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!

    I bought a Whirlpool Cabrio Dryer about 6 months ago. I HATE it. I just wanted a machine that would dry my clothes, but the Whirlpool Cabrio Dryer can't even do that basic function properly. 1)The Automatic Cycle 'Dryness Level' feature requires an overly full load to "accurately" determine the humidity, regardless of the Est. Time Remaining (i.e., drying time) that the Cabrio displays. 2)I must choose Timed Dry if I want to be assured that the clothes are completely dry. 3)I have to push the 'Est. Time Remaining' button for each minute of the 'Timed Dry.' For example, to select a 'Timed Dry' of 20 minutes, I have to push the 'Est. Time Remaining' button 20 times. 4)I have followed the online FAQ instructions to reset the Dryness level to no avail. 5)The 'Wrinkle Shield' cycle does not cool Permanent Press loads adequately, resulting in wrinkles, even for Wrinkle-free cloth. 6)The top of the dryer is sloped so that, with normal laundry vibration, anything placed on the dryer ends up on the floor. 7)The Whirlpool Cabrio Dryer 'Cycle Signal' (the buzzer) is a series of 4 tones that cannot be heard above other, normal household noises. 8)To reset the dryer, one must turn the dryer off and then on again. 9)The Whirlpool Cabrio Dryer plays sounds/tones for every movement of the dial or push of a button. 10)This dryer is taller than my washing machine and wider than my old dryer. 11)Each load of delicate clothing or Permanent Press must be carefully monitored (see reasons 1-8), and it takes at least 3 cycles to dry them properly. In summary, the Whirlpool Cabrio Dryer has been a utter waste of money and is for me an irritating, time-wasting machine. I do not recommend this product.

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio WED5500 White Electric Dryer:

    We've had this dryer just over a month now and I love it. Dries very efficiently and has economic settings. Since we live in an electric house (no gas lines) having that economic friendly option is awesome and with such good capacity I can dry everything at once and not have to redry clothes.

    I purchased this in November after my 21 year old Kenmore died. It's a great machine --- just wish the top surface was flat instead of curved to the front.

    this dryer does a very good job of drying the clothes but seems to leave wrinkles if left for a very short time after the cycle ends

    Smart selection. Features are great and outstanding performance. Installation was simple and store delivery was a huge plus. Removal of old dryer by store tech was another key factor.

    I love this dryer! It is sooooo roomy and I don't have near the wrinkling, which means less ironing! And everything comes out smelling great! YEA!
