There are so many options these days for washers and dryers. I was replacing an old pair of Whirlpools and had been satisfied with the performance of the old pair. I did some on-line research, reading reviews etc on many other brands and decided after my homework was done, I would stay with the same brand. I am very pleased with my choice. I have used the Cabrio Platinum pair for about 4 months now. I really have no complaints. I have noticed that in this short amount of time, they do make a little more noise than in the begining. But compared to my old set, they are very quiet. The laundry room is situated directly off my kitchen. We are always in the kitchen and I do not feel that the Whirlpool units are intrusive with the amount of noise they make. Both the washer and dryer are easy to use. The dryer is SO much faster than my previous model which saves electricity. The size of the units are very nice. I love the color choices - mine are grey and I'm glad I chose this color. The drums are large and easily wash and dry big bulky items. I love the washer with no agitator. The extra features are handy, although I don't tend to use them often. The steam feature and static reducer leave the clothes a little too damp for me. I like the ease of setting the dryer and it usually requires the touch of one button to dry on my favorite settings. The only downfall to both the washer and dryer are the preset options. For instance, if you choose the jeans setting to dry jeans, the dryer is preset to medium heat. I only dry jeans on low heat and the preset setting can not be changed. It isn't a huge obstacle though - I simply choose timed dry and set the temperature to low. The same issue exists with the washer and the water temperature. A little more flexibility here would make them nearly flawless! Otherwise, I'm glad I stuck with the Whirlpool brand and I'm very happy with the new pair.

This dryer has a design flaw that needs to be reported. The lint catch has a gap on the bottom part of it that catches clothes. I have ruined a couple of shirts because it snags a piece of the shirt and wedges it in the corner causing it to twist and tear the fabric if its thin enough. so far It has caught shirts, towels, underwear, washclothes small throws and socks.

I purchased this dryer several months ago and have been extremely happy with its performance. It can handle the numerous large loads of towels that my family produces and in half the time of my old machine. I also love the sanitize feature!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great features, reliable, quite

We bought this six months ago and are very happy we did, great product.
from Maine, United States
This dryer is amazing! So quiet that you can hardly hear it running. The touch pad is amazing, Its different settings for different clothes is great. I dont have to keep checking to see if they are dry or not, If I only have one thing to dry, I can choose my time and know that its going to be the right temperture without overdrying.
Love this dryer!

We purchased this dryer in Sept 2013 when we bought our home - along with the matching washer. At first I thought it had way too many features for what we needed, but I have come to appreciate the different settings! The steam function is great for refreshing and getting out stubborn wrinkles without pulling out the iron. It actually hooks up to the same cold water faucet as the washer, using a split connector - which was a big selling point for me instead of having a separate compartment on the dryer. Another great feature is the "check vent" indicator light. In our house, the washer/dryer is on the main floor, and the vent runs up through the 2nd floor into the attic - then to the outside. As soon as we used it the first time, the light came on which is the only reason we realized there was a problem. The vent was actually knocked loose in the attic when the previous owners were moving and was blowing against the wall. It dries a large load quickly and efficiently without over drying. It uses a sensor to detect when the items are dry, and shows you how long it will take. Overall I am extremely happy with this purchase. I have recommended this set to everyone I know!

This dryer is quiet, very high efficiency, and does a wonderful job! Love the steam cycle. Takes no time at all to dry compared to my old dryer. Top notch quality, Whirlpool!! Thank you!!

Very happy with my new dryer... I love all of the features on the dryer...
The concept of this product is great but I feel the wash misses some pieces of clothes.
from South Haven, MI
I was exited to get a Cambrio washer. My old washer a Kenmore Elite (which we were told was manufactured by Whirlpool) was not energy efficient and the lid had to be manually held down for it to work. My son bought a Cambrio pair in 2010. I was impressed when I washed my white washcloths that I used to remove makeup. They were white and the stains removed.i have not seen that with my washer. When I remove my clothes from the washer some are partially dry. I also double rinse as soap scum are on the clothes especially dark ones. I use the HE detergents and softener. I have reduced the amount also but it doesn't seem to help. No complaints on the dryer. The various cycles are wonderful.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Large capacity for a dryer
from Bethesda, Md
Like using this dryer. I do not how ever feel the steam cycle is worth while...keeps clothes damp instead of wrinkle free.
awesome machine cuts drying time in half
from Laredo , TX
my old dryer would take about 30 -45 min. to dry a regular load, this machine does the job in about 15-20 minutes.
Product is uiser friendly and makes laundry easier.
from Huntington, WV
Machine does an economic easy job upon selecting the right setting per fabric. Just select and you can do other things and come back to just fold.
