I purchased this dryer (WGD8500BW) along with the matching washer (WTW8500BW) and I absolutely LOVE both of them! I use all the settings on this dryer and I really enjoy the way the door is wide open with the top opening set back in it. I don't have to bend over to get the clothes into the dryer from the washer, I just drop them in....EASY! At first my clothes were "not quite" getting dry enough for my liking at the end of the cycles and I was having to add time, which I didn't like. BUT, I read the owners manual and EASILY fixed this issue. I just followed the directions to make a global setting change that changed the cycles to automatically dry my clothes 15% more. Now at the end of any cycle, my clothes are perfectly dry and ready to fold!!! LOVED THAT!! I would definitely recommend this product!

Using this dryer on its default Normal setting with clothes that were washed using the Normal setting takes a significant amount of time--more than an hour in many cases. And even after completing the cycle, frequently items come out more damp than we'd like. It is possible for two washer loads to be complete before one dryer load has finished in our house, so wet clothes must wait to be dried. We've played around with modifying the settings, but sometimes you can't increase the dryness level depending on the cycle setting. We will probably start to choose manual settings until we find a setting that works more quickly and consistently.
On several occasions, the Check Vent light has come on. I'm not quite sure why, as we empty the lint screen after each load and the vent hose is practically new. Most often, the light does not come on again once the next load has started and I haven't done anything except clean the lint screen. Kind of like the boy who cried wolf...
Overall, it's a nice looking machine but we're a bit disappointed with the performance using the preset options.

The Cabrio line is awful

By 

from Temecula

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum Cranberry Red Gas SteamDryer:

We bought the Cabrio washer and dryer as a set 22 months ago. The washer constantly goes off balance when washing towels or 1 set of sheets and the dryer just went out - won't heat. Looks like we will be calling a service repairman again! I wouldn't spend my money on this brand. This is my 5th set in my 40 years of owning a home. Very sad Whirlpool!

Big dryer

By 

from Michigan city, IN

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum Cranberry Red Gas SteamDryer:

I bought this 2 months ago when my old dryer died. It's a good dryer but it takes a long time to dry. The normal setting says 38 minutes, but sometimes I go back downstairs 20 minutes later and it says there's still 32 minutes left. And that's not a huge load. My last dryer was 19 years old and worked a lot faster. They just don't make them like they used to anymore. But, at the end of the day, it gets the job done.

My new best friend!

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum Cranberry Red Gas SteamDryer:

My beautiful red Whirlpool dryer has saved me time and money in only a few short uses. I love the eco monitor, the fact that this machine knows how long it will take to dry my clothes. My old dryer I would tack on an extra 20 minutes, not with this one! I could go on and on, but having a steam feature, yep, that's the best feature for me!

The best purchase ever!

By 

from Findlay, OH

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum Cranberry Red Gas SteamDryer:

My dryer purchase turned out to be a happy accident. Let me go back a bit, My first washer dryer purchase were Whirlpool brand. They lasted me 18 years and had been well used. I replaced them with another brand and after only 7 years, I found myself in need of a new gas dryer immediately. When I went to look for one, I knew that I would have to take whatever was in the store because I needed one now and a gas dryer had to be ordered and would take up to 3 weeks to have one delivered. I was impressed by the look and overwhelmed by the features but I took a leap of faith because it was a Whirlpool. The first time I used it I was very impressed. The control panel was easy to navigate. The size is large enough to accommodate a king size comforter with room to spare. The dry sense feature keeps you from over drying anything. I haven't used the steam or sanitize features yet but my husband says they are wonderful. I will be purchasing the washer very soon!

I bought this when we moved recently, and my wife is very happy with it. It is nice and quiet and dries clothes perfectly. Because it is a gas dryer, we expect energy savings for years to come!

Great Dryer!

By

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum Cranberry Red Gas SteamDryer:

I bought this dryer last year after my basement flooded. I'm really happy with my choice of dryer. The Steam Cycle is great for taking out wrinkles in clothes. The moisture sensor allows the clothes to dry without overheating them and causing shrinkage.
