I am still getting used to the new dryer but am really missing a feature on my old dryer called Sensor dry. This new dryer is supposed to have three sensors yet when the cycle ends the clothes are still slightly damp so they sit in the bottom of the dryer and get wrinkled. Maybe I am operating it wrong? There doesn't seem to be an adjustment to the pre-sets to add minutes or make the dryer warmer to avoid this. You can use the time dry and then the time and controls are adjustable of course but then you end up running the dryer longer than you might need, thus wasting energy and overdrying is not good for your clothes.

I really enjoy the light in the drum and think this is a quality machine. Unfortunately, I don't think I know how to use it correctly. Clothes often come out with damp areas even though the dryer supposedly has a moisture sensor that senses when the clothes are dry. Also, although it has a refreshing cycle that can either be steam or dry, clothes come out much more wrinkled than the 15 year old dryer it replaced. The controls provide lots of options, but they don't remember the ones used most frequently so I have to set my preferences each time.

Great Dryer

By Katie999

from Michgan

Comments about Whirlpool Duet White Gas Dryer:

I bought this dryer without seeing it in person, which always makes me a little nervous, but I've been thrilled with my purchase. The dryer has a large capacity, a variety of settings, and is very efficient. I'd recommend this dryer to anyone.

Nice Dryer.

By Donna2014

from Horseheads, NY, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Duet White Gas Dryer:

I bought this dryer about 1 year ago, the dryer works well, there are time when I check the clothes about 20 minutes before they are supposed to be dry. The clothes are dry, so it runs longer than needed. When drying sheets items, they roll up, with other items mixed in it, so they don't dry well. For the most part I like the dryer.

Excellent Petformance

By My dryer

from Encinitas, CA, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Duet White Gas Dryer:

I have owned the dryer 3 months now and I only like it more. I have its matching washer too. The dryer is so quiet and efficient. I am always happy to hear it's pretty song. The inside light is a brilliant innovation. The clothes are always dry, never needing a redo so the sensors work great. I just used the steam feature for my new napkins which I discovered are not permanent press. This crumpled mass of linen and cotton came out smooth and foldable. I was going to scream if I had to start ironing my daily use napkins but the dryer saved my voice. I love this dryer.

    Awesome!

    By JFT_1977

    Comments about Whirlpool Duet White Gas Dryer:

    We've had the dryer for several months and are extremely happy with it. The STEAM setting is excellent for the kids items -- NO IRONING REQUIRED! There is a lot of room in the dryer - bigger loads means fewer loads:) We would definitely recommend and buy again.

    Great Features

    By Elle721

    from Florida

    Comments about Whirlpool Duet White Gas Dryer:

    Bought a new house and updated to this dryer. I am so happy that I did. It holds a ton of clothes, and dries very fast. It has many features that cut drying time in half for me and also has a steam feature that refreshes clothes.

    Works well, my wife loves it

    By Old Dude

    Comments about Whirlpool Duet White Gas Dryer:

    My wife likes the machine very much. I find the touch control a bit difficult to work with but she has no problems. This is a rather expensive machine which hopefully will last a long time.
