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.

        I needed a ventless dryer and I really didn't know if the technology would truly work and to my surprise, it totally does! Not only is it a fantastic design, it does the job and I'm thrilled!

              Comments about Bose Personal Music Center III Remote Control:

              This was installed 6/4/15 and worked quite nicely for 6 days. On the 7th day the drum wouldn't spin. I called Whirlpool and they set me up for a service appointment 4 days out, which bothered be immensely since it's a brand new machine. The authorized service center refused to come out unless we unstacked it ourselves, which we couldn't figure out how to do. It had taken 2 guys to stack it in the first place. They stacked it outside and wheeled the whole thing in to install it. I called the store where we purchased it again and they said we had to call Whirlpool to get the service order cancelled and transferred to them. But when I called tonight, they were closed. This should be a no-brainer. A brand new machine that you sold to me doesn't work, now come and fix it. Way too time consuming for the already inconvenienced customer.

              Whining gives me a headache!

                    Installed a week ago, along with matching Duet steam washer. Works great, but the high pitched whine coming from the dryer gives me a headache. Also, it makes the laundry room too hot and humid. I do understand this is normal for this type dryer, but if I'd known ahead of time, I might have chosen NOT to purchase the ventless dryer.

                    For video, search YouTube for "Whirlpool Duet Ventless Heat Pump Dryer Whining". Couldn't get it to upload to review.

                          I remodeled my kitchen and wanted to stack the washer & dryer so I could move the ice box where the washer was. The room was tight and I couldn't have the vent. The vent-less dryer was the ticket. The combo work great together.
                          Thanks

                                      Couldn't be happier with this purchase. Had it for five months, problem free. We live in a large apartment building, without venting (like most urban new construction), so had been limited to the original euro condensing machines. With a young family, this full-size makes such a difference. We're not using the eco functions at all, so we find it very fast (especially compared to traditional non-venting). We've had no leaks or high humidity, and find it fairly quiet. Compared to non-venting alternatives, it's a home run.

                                                  We were SO hoping this dryer would be wonderful... and it just isn't. We've had it for a week and it doesn't dry anything in faster than 2 cycles. The laundry room turns into a steam bath every time we run it. On top of that, it produces a high-pitched whine that gives me a headache every time. It's going back. I hope the next iteration of this dryer fixes these issues!

                                                        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.
