Product Details

Whirlpool Cabrio Chrome Shadow Gas Dryer, Model WGD5700ACS

If you are looking for a gas dryer with style as well as substance, the Whirlpool WGD5700AC front loading dryer, can fulfill your needs. This clothes dryer was designed with a pleasing and unique aesthetic in mind. Step away from the ordinary, boring look of standard driers with the WGD5700AC's chrome shadow finish.

Of course, looks aren't everything and the Whirlpool WGD5700AC has beauty on the inside as well. This front loading dryer has a massive 7.4 cubic foot capacity, allowing you to dry large loads. This gas dryer has eight automatic cycles and five different temperature settings, so it dries everything from extra delicate clothing to heavy-duty clothes and it has a touch-up cycle as well. Make wrinkles a thing of the past with the drier's Wrinkle Shield Plus Option.

If you're thinking that all this power must be quite noisy, think again. Thanks to Quiet Dry Plus Noise Reduction System technology, this clothes dryer runs nice and quiet so as to not disrupt the peace of your home while doing its work. You can even adjust the volume of the dryer's end-of-cycle signal so that it isn't as jarring as some dryers.

This unit is also eco-friendly and includes a variety of environmentally helpful features such as the Eco Normal Cycle-Cabrio and an eco monitor to ensure the most efficient use of the dryer's power. Sensors built into the unit will help keep clothes from over-drying, and the LED display is easy to read. The front window lets and interior drum light helps you keep an eye on your laundry during the process, and when it's time to unload, doing so is a snap thanks to the wide-opening hamper door.

This dryer replaced one that was still working, but was almost 20 years old. There have been many improvements in the last 20 years. I had been looking for a new washer/dryer set for at least two years. I have a laundry room with built-in cabinets so the pair had to fit in an existing dedicated space. This dryer was a perfect size, loved the Chrome Shadow finish and the door that has a window. It is very quiet, has energy saving features and so easy to use. Additionally, it was well priced. I really highly recommend this model. In 48 years of marriage I have had Whirlpool ovens, dishwashers, washers and dryers, and refrigerators, they never disappoint. Good workmanship, excellent quality, and reasonable price are always a part of the Whirlpool brand.

Hi efficiency washer does not clean clothes well. We find we are frequently using bulky item settings in order to achieve cleaner clothes. The dryer has a vibration noise which continues in spite of a service call by our selling dealer to correct the problem. The serviceman indicated he couldn't do much for the noise due to the design and lack of insulation within the dryer.
If we were to make this purchase again, we would look for a full agitator design (rather than high efficiency design) similar to the 15 year old Maytag set we gave up, Our Maytag washer and dryer was getting old, but still worked very well.

              I like the machines as a whole- color, size, cleaning and drying excellent, save on the bills (water, electric, heat) a big plus. Easy to use and maintain, very good for a family of four and more. Loads of clothes are very large. Cutting washing time down.

                    When you put it on a certain setting and take out your clothes before the time is up. It stays stuck on that setting with the time left. If you want to put in a new load you have to press the power button to turn it off and then turn it back on. There should be a reset/clear button. Otherwise, great product!

                              Machine is good looking. We bought the grey which is different and it looks good in our utility room. We've had several compliments.

                                The lines of the dryer are modern. Control panel is easy to use. Like the dry sensing that it has. Alot of room for drying bulky items.
