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.

A good start on more efficient clothes drying

        Comments about Bose Personal Music Center III Remote Control:

        We've been using the HybridCare for about two months and so far are very pleased both with the performance and the reduced electricity usage over our previous conventional dryer (at least 50% less). Because this is new technology, at least in the U.S. market, I actually purchased the extended service plan, something I normally don't do. One concern for long term use are the lint filters - they don't seem likely to hold up well. Plastic hinges rarely do well in high heat, continuous use environments.

        Excellent Ventless Dryer

              Comments about Bose Personal Music Center III Remote Control:

              I live in a condo building that was built with non-vented laundry rooms, and I replaced a condensing dryer with the Whirlpool HybridCare Dryer and a matching washer. I was a little nervous because I was afraid I would not get the performance I was hoping for in this more expensive dryer. I was wrong. I've seen reviews that talk about very long drying times, but I can generally dry a load of clothes in less than an hour. While the countdown timer starts out at more than an hour on Eco-friendly settings, mine seems to drop the time during the cycle as it senses less moisture. Drying times are half that of my condensing dryer, and the options on this unit are great! The only thing I'd like to have seen added is a steam option. I've had the dryer about 2 weeks now, and I can say that I am completely satisfied with everything about it, so far.

                    It dries the clothes, that is what counts. It takes a little longer on full Eco mode but the energy savings should easily make that worth it. The only negative I have experienced is the slight "whine" it makes and the humidity it adds to the room. But I keep the laundry room door closed to keep the kitchen quieter so that probably exacerbates the humidity situation. Most of the year I can have the door to the garage open and that will let the humidity out.

                          When we bought our ventless dryer, I was somewhat skeptical that it would dry things thoroughly. It has exceeded my expectations, and things come out dry and less wrinkled than before. I love the fact that the dryer reminds me when it's time to clean the extra filter - I do not have to remember how many loads have been done until it's the 5th load. I also like the "pleasant" signal when the laundry is done. The best part is knowing we will never have a dryer fire because it is ventless. Using less energy is always a plus too. All in all, it's been a good purchase!

                                            I have been waiting for a Heat pump vent less dryer to be available in this country. When I found out Whirlpool was making it, we ordered immediately. We are building a new efficient home and this dryer will be the star of the show! Now we won't be ducting heated air out of the house every time we dry clothes. We have had it for about two months and it really works great! Clothes are softer and drier than before, and although I don't have a baseline for energy use, our use so far is very low.

                                                  Works better than anticipated. Excellent performance.

                                                        I bought this dryer along with a matching new Whirlpool washer in June 2015. It uses far less electricity than my previous old outdated Kenmore dryer. I really like the ventless feature because the dryer vent in my house is about 30 feet long and can get clogged. The only downside is that it's somewhat more noisy than my old dryer.
