    We really like the large capacity on this dryer (easily able to hold a large comforter) and the numerous features, particularly the sanitize function and steam functions, plus the internal LED within the dryer drum, which lights up the interior of the machine and is a really delightful feature. The machine is rather quiet and doesn't bother us at all, even standing right next to it, but it is not as quiet as some top-end models we'd seen. It also seems to warm up the room somewhat when it is in use, despite our having a very short connection to the exterior vent; it's not a problem in the winter, but we wonder if it cuts into our home's total energy efficiency, particularly in the summer. Unfortunately the button noises and cycle alerts are quite annoying, which was disappointing since a relative has a very similar model whose sounds are similar but much less grating; the very first thing we did was turn off the sound completely. We love that the door is reversible, and we wish the accompanying washer had the same flexibility. The sensing function is nice and automatically adjusts drying time, but we find that thicker fabrics (e.g. jeans) and fabrics that tend to ball up or have interior areas (e.g. sheets and dryer bags) sometimes come out slightly damp using the default settings, but better that they are slightly "under-dry" than "over-dry," particularly with some delicate fabrics, and a few extra minutes or a simple settings adjustment solves the problem. The door's exterior frame is plastic, not metal, although the chrome finish is nicely done and seems durable. The "buttons" are actually a touch-sensitive flat panel, and occasionally one of them gets pressed inadvertently as laundry is being loaded or unloaded (e.g., the "lock controls" button often gets pressed inadvertently, preventing us from using the machine until we "unlock" it by holding the button for three seconds). For the price, we think it's a decent value dryer, and the limitations aren't such that we regret the purchase.

    I hate that if you dare lean against the washer or dryer accidently it comes on. Very nerve racking with kids around! Bad design! The steam in the dryer is a useless feature...who would leave their clothes in the dryer for an hour for that to come on? The gentle cycle in the washer is bad...leaves a lot of water in the bottom of the washer which has to be dealt with the next time you wash a load. The dryer does not dry at all well unless you perhaps use the hot setting...not good...it shrinks the jeans. Both appliances are supposed to be energy efficient, I find them to be big energy users as in a normal setting the washer runs for over an hour...who wants to wash a load for an hour? Need major improvements all the way around...they are not close to my old washer and dryer or the standards that I expect of whirlpool.

    So Fast

    Comments about Whirlpool Duet White Electric Steam Dryer:

    When I saw the minutes it would take to dry a regular load, I didn't believe it. Much to my surprise, the load of towels was completely dry. The dryer does an excellant job of drying any load I put in.

    Comments about Whirlpool Duet White Electric Steam Dryer:

    When my old duet dryer stopped working after 12 years of daily use, I decided to get another duet. Love the steam feature. The dryer does make a buzzing noise, even when the steam feature is off. I need to contact Whirlpool to make sure this is normal. Otherwise, very happy.

    Efficient and Quiet

    By jimmy4unc

    from Union Point, GA, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool Duet White Electric Steam Dryer:

    We were not originally in the market for a new washer and dryer, but an electrical issue forced our hand. In hindsight, I'm glad it did. Although our previous washer an dryer did pretty well, my wife and I have been well pleased with the Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer. We have found the washer not only cleans clothes well, it does not shake and rock like our former one. In addition, it is big enough to handle our queen sized comforter. The dryer is super fast, drying in less than half the time of the one we replaced. It, too, holds a lot of laundry. My wife has used the steam feature a few times and was well satisfied. I hate wrinkled shirts, so this feature has been a real benefit.

    By warg49

    from Oxford, MI, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool Duet White Electric Steam Dryer:

    I have had Maytag front load dryers for the past 10 years. I find the Whirlpool is comparable except for the "humming" when running. I had a repair man check this out thinking it might be a belt. He didn't find any problem with the machine. This humming is not intolerable but kind of bugs me because my laundry is directly off of the kitchen.

    So far no problems except washer shakes a bit, but from what I hear all front loaders do.
