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.

Love my dryer!

By 

from League City, Texas

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Stainless Steel Gas Dryer:

I was uncertain of the purchase, as it was needed simply because our previous dryer didn't fit with new home. We weren't purchasing washer, wasn't sure about non matching, etc. But, oh so glad we did! Love the setting options an it's so quiet. The steam option is fabulous! Still learning some of the control settings, but so far great!

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Stainless Steel Gas Dryer:

Christie's Appliances gave us a great deal.
Electric dryers are like belly buttons, everybody has one. To find a good gas dryer is a lot harder. The Whirlpool Duet fills the bill - quiet & efficient. Don't forget the companion washer for the two units compliment each other.

Great Dryer

By 

from Pensacola, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Duet Stainless Steel Gas Dryer:

We bought this to go with a front-load washer in order to stack them in our small laundry area. We have had it almost a month and could not be happier. The large drum holds everything, including comforters and dog beds. The wrinkle guard with steam is a nice added feature. It lost one star because you cannot completely customize all settings.
