I ventured into this purchase knowing that this dryer will take longer to dry my clothes and would require a little more maintenance than my old machine and with that expectation in mind, I'm VERY happy with this product! Everything comes out of this dryer softer and fluffier than any other dryer I've ever used (and I've used quite a few since I moved around a lot for a number of years) and the scent!!! I like my clothes to come out of the dryer smelling fresh and clean! That's why I buy scented detergent! Since this dryer constantly recycles the air, the scent of the detergent/fabric softener does not fade nearly as much as with my old vented dryer. Clothes smell nice and fresh coming out and retain their scent for much longer!

One thing about this dryer, which is NOT a complaint, just an observation, is that if you are considering this dryer, you quite possibly might need to rethink how you do laundry. It's harder to get the most energy savings and bang out several loads of laundry in a row with this machine. I generally limit myself to 1 or 2 loads of laundry a day as that's all I have time for after work until I go to bed. I don't use the Speed Mode, I only use Eco Mode as that's why I bought this machine. If you use Speed Mode, you will very likely be able to get more laundry done in an evening than I do.

We bought this new WED99HED ventless heat pump dryer even though it was considerably more expensive because Whirlpool touted significant energy savings. The logic behind the design made perfect sense - why send all that hot air out the vent when you can recycle it into the machine and not have to keep reheating it. The dryer worked great for the first 3 months, but then started dumping hot air into our laundry room, turning it into a sauna. Two technicians came out and neither one had ever seen this machine before. Whirlpool tech support claims the machine is 'working as designed' - the operating temperature is up to 105 degrees and because there is no vent the heat has nowhere to go but into the laundry room. We live in Florida, so whatever energy savings we may be getting from the dryer will be more than lost by the increased air conditioning bill to cool all that hot air. Now we are going to have to install a fan vent in the laundry room to try and remove the hot air from the house. BTW they don't tell you there is a screen on the BACK of the machine that they expect you to clean once a month - our laundry room is just wide enough for the washer and dryer to fit - so we are going to routinely have to actually pull this heavy beast out to get at the back. Very poor design. Whirlpool has a very unhappy consumer here.

Love this dryer!

By 

from St. Louis MO

Verified Buyer

Comments about Bose Personal Music Center III Remote Control:

We've had the ventless, heat pump dryer for 6 weeks. It works amazingly well. We had to increase the default dryness setting, but fortunately that's easy to do. The dryer does take longer in some modes than my previous dryer; but there is the option to dry more quickly when you need to, so I don't mind.

We just insulated our house with foam and it seemed a shame to cut a hole in the side of the house to allow cold air in for a vented dryer.

HybridCare filter is poorly made

By 

from Toledo, OH

Comments about Bose Personal Music Center III Remote Control:

I have owned the unit for about 6 months and if it wasn't for the HybridCare filter I'd give this 5 stars and recommend it to everyone I know. The filter is flimsy and poorly made. Plus there's a charcoal type filter insert that is getting clogged up that I can't get cleaned out. I have looked everywhere on the internet for replacements and can't find anything. Lint filters are available for every make and model in existence it seems but this filter is no where. I am very very worried about what I will do when the filter finally falls apart.

AWFUL

By 

from Arnold, MD

Verified Buyer

Comments about Bose Personal Music Center III Remote Control:

Just got it, problem is that it does not perform in the way described in that the air is not just recirculated within the machine for the drying. Instead, the dryer pulls air from inside the home, and blows it back into the house, it removes the lint and some of the mositure, but all the smells associated with laundry and fabric softener permeates throughout the house. In addition, it blows 110 degree heat back into the house throughout the drying cycle. This machine is defective in its design, and is marketed fraudulently. Don't even think of
purchasing one, you will hate it also.

Other review almost scared me off, but I love this Dryer!!!

By 

from Lehi, UT

Verified Buyer

Comments about Bose Personal Music Center III Remote Control:

My friend lives in England and has raved about these, so I decided to try it out even with some scary reviews that made me nervous. I've had this dryer for 3 weeks now, and cannot believe what I've been missing out on! I've had this long vent that gets plugged every few months and drying clothes was a long process taking two cycles and a timed dry all in a row. Now I just start my dryer, and decide if I want Eco or Speed. It's dry! Imagine that a dryer that dries! Seriously though my clothes are coming out so much nicer than before I cannot believe we don't have all ventless dryers in the US. When others figure the out I'm sure ventless will take over!

Works great

By 

from IL

Comments about Bose Personal Music Center III Remote Control:

I needed a ventless dryer and have been waiting for a heat pump dryer. My house has been remodeled and there is no good way to run a vent where the current laundry is located. Plus, it always irked me that the dryer was pumping out conditioned air. I had been using a compact ventless dryer and it worked but it was very small and inefficient.

I am giving this only 4 stars because the lint filter that came with it was defective and had a hole, Also it is quite flimsy. HELLO Whirlpool engineers! Fix that.

That said, It cost Whirlpool a bundle to fix, they sent a tech out, he verified it was bad and then came back with a new one. They should have just sent it directly to me. HELLO Whirlpool accountants. Fix that. They were very responsive and made it there within a couple of days for verification.

It dries well, has a lot of different options and is really big. I have seen reports that it is loud, and it was kind of at first but not a big deal and it seems to have quieted down after some use. It is running right now in the other room and it does not bother me.

Cleaning the secondary filter is not that big of a deal compared to what I had to do with the compact dryer.

The big deal on this is that it is a closed system, it does not suck all your heated or air conditioned air and blow it back outside, forcing new outside air through the crevices to replace it. That said, I use a line a lot in the summer, but with the new washer, I am going to need a longer line.

I also bought the matching washer, same story. It worked but the sensor for the "Load and Go" system was defective. The same guy came at the same time, we discussed and he turned it until it worked and we taped it in place until the replacement part arrived.

Whirlpool marketing, these are the little things that take you from 4 to 5 stars. Had everything worked on the first try, it would be 5 for both, but I don't expect to spend the type of money I did and have to have a service call.

Fortunately, they were able to combine the service calls and it was fixed within a week and a half and usable the whole time.

For anyone that has a compact ventless dryer like the Bosch Axxis or others, this is the replacement to buy. Strong suggested

Great Dryer!

By 

from Orlando, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Bose Personal Music Center III Remote Control:

I bought this as a set with the Duet washer and it works great. While the dryer is top notch with all the capabilities expected in a top-of-the-line dryer, the ventless capability is the best. No worrying about cleaning the vent or vent fires. The humidity from the dryer is not even noticeable! Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend it highly.

Too big for stacking

By 

from Brooklyn, NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about Bose Personal Music Center III Remote Control:

I needed a stacking washer/dryer in a tight space that had a ventless dryer. I was told this was the only one I could get. Although, I was also sold a miele, ventless, stacking w/d for another apartment I own. The Miele is more expensive but smaller and a better fit for stacking. Maybe the salesman assumed I wanted a full family washer/dryer? This machine was replacing a stackied Maytag w/d. Well the machines are perfectly fine for side by side but as a stacking machine they are so large that I have to stand on a step stool to reach the dryer controls. Why would anybody put the controls on the top of a dryer for a stacking machine. Also, these machines are in a closet. They weigh almost 500 lbs. Whirlpool does not have a system in place to move the machines out if you need to service the water lines or the machines. Whirlpool sales people could not even tell me if the machines are serviced in front. I had to have the machines installed on a dolly so that if I needed to move them in an emergency it was possible to move them. They are monster machines and should not be sold as stacking machines. The machines are noisier than my 25 year old Maytag.

Ventless Dryer is the best

By

Comments about Bose Personal Music Center III Remote Control:

Got it a month ago to replace a 17 year old ventless dryer. This one is bigger, quieter, and better. Heat pump technology works great and is a lot faster than we expected. No room moisture issues.
