    When I bought this dryer I did not even research as I normally do. I spent my time researching washers and was set on just picking the matching dryer for whatever washer i picked. I did not think a new dryer would be all that different from my old one. Well, i was pleasantly surprised with this dryer. It is smart, efficient and quiet. I bought a large washer and this dryer handles the large loads from that washer. It senses the size of the load and adjusts the time so that the load comes out perfect. Not over-dried so that everything shrinks, and not under-drieed (unless you want it tell you when it is almost dry). I really love the steam feature. My shirts don't have to be ironed anymore. If the load finishes and you don't have time to get it or you are not home, the dryer will periodically turn on and apply steam to prevent the load from wrinkles. I am very happy with this purchase.

    My review is based on previous products I have used and the price point of this dryer as well as the features and ease of use. Overall this is a very nice looking, "high capacity" load dryer but I have problems with the drying time. This product is really no better than the last two High Efficiency dryers that I have had. It seems to take a really long time to get towels, jeans and heavier items dry. You cannot base the load that you place in the dryer on the capacity of the washer unless you want to spend 75 minutes dry time minimum. Even on the sanitize setting, with max heat and dryness, you cannot put more than 3-4 towels or jeans for that matter, as part of your regular load in the dryer at a time without having your clothes remain somewhat damp. I have noticed that with all of these so-called high efficiency types that the towels over time develop a "musty" smell because they never truly dry all the way unless you just buy really cheap, thin towels to help you accomplish faster dry times. I frequently have a "check dryer vent" light that comes on and it is frustrating to say the least as there is no build up of lint in the pull out tray and we ran a lint "snake" down through the vent on both the inside and through the outside vent and there is nothing clogging it. I stopped at one of the big box stores and they suggested turning the unit "on" then clearing the lint tray to see if that takes care of the problem. So far that doesn't work. Although there are several drying options, I have found that I mostly am using the sanitize cycle just to be able to get my clothes thoroughly dry and I don't see how that is suppose to be economically efficient : (

        Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum White Gas Steam Dryer:

        The steam cycle is nice for getting wrinkles out. The only downfall I have found so far is the auto dry sensors leave clothes damp so you need to restart dryer one or two times. Towels never come out dry the first time.

                Lint trap setup is poor. Allows a lot of lint to pass down the vent.

                  I would recommend this to anyone. At first it was a little intimidating because I was used to the standard washing machine and dryer. I am not one for a bunch of buttons but I got used to it pretty quickly, and my clothes look a lot cleaner than they used to.

                    With large laundry loads the basin holds everything with plenty of room to spare. The dampness sensor saves time and energy however on occasion heavy loads still come out slightly damp.

                        My new dryer has many features to fit whatever you place in it. I love the wrinkle guard cycle and all the choices you have depending on the type of load you are drying. Very beautiful design, and built well which is why I choose Whirlpool brand.

                            The only thing that I do not like is the fact that on certain settings I am not able to choose whether I want hot, warm, cold, etc. It is pre-determined for me and I can't change that. I know this is done to protect my clothes, but sometimes I still want a certain drying cycle but with a hotter drying temperature. Other than that I love the dryer.
