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.

              We purchased a HybridCare? Ventless Duet® Dryer with Heat Pump Technology about a month ago. Our purchase was based on the desire to alleviate the long dryer run we have in our home (a vent fan was undesirable). If you are looking for a very economical to run, full sized machine with absolutely no need for venting this model is superb.

              Saves on home heating/AC

                    Comments about Bose Personal Music Center III Remote Control:

                    I sought for a heat pump clothes dryer over many years, and this was one of two models that became available in the US in 2015. I chose this model because it had faster dry times as reported relative to the other model. Overall I am very happy with my choice. It dries large loads, condenses the water out, and runs it to the drain. It saves money on energy used to dry the clothes, but that alone would not make it worth the money unless you have strong environmental interests. I live in a cold winter climate, and we launder a lot of clothes, so that the dryer runs often. The air that blows through a normal dryer gets blown out of the house, and new cold air comes into the house to replace it, and it needs to be heated. Heat pump clothes dryers like this one do not vent air outside, so you save on the home heating/AC. One small drawback I have found with this model other than slightly longer dry times (with the option for faster ones by selection, at higher energy use), is that it includes a second lint filter that needs to be cleaned every five loads. Cleaning this filter takes a few minutes each week for us. This filter is necessary to prevent build up of lint on the heat pump heat exchanger. Another drawback is that it only rotates one way, so that very large blankets occasionally rotate about a center that stays moist.

                    Bottom line is that it works well for our family needs (6 people, including 4 children), and it dries most items and large loads very well.
