    I have had front loaders for the last 3 years and hate them. They smell and don't have any extra features that this pair doesn't have. I love the glass top so I can see what's going on in there. I honestly didn't think this washer would clean the clothes well since it doesn't have an agitator, but filthy clothes come out perfectly clean. I use powdered detergent since I had such an issue with liquid detergent when using my front loaders. I'm sure the liquid would be fine though. I also Leave the top of the washer open after I do clothes to make sure there is absolutely no mildew smell. I love the hand wash option and think the soak feature is unbelievable since I don't have a sink in my laundry room to soak clothes. I love the steam cycle feature on the dryer, it gets wrinkles out wonderfully! I haven't used an iron since I got this dryer :) I would recommend this washer and dryer to everyone. I did a lot of research before purchasing and I am so happy I went with these. They are a bit pricey, but having a perfect product that has all the features I need, made it worth every penny. Love, love, love my new washer and dryer, I actually get excited when it's time to do laundry!

    Dries well enough most of the time but not as good as my old dryer that was 30+ years old. If clothes are of a mixed type the buzzer goes off before they are all dry. Also when there are only a couple items they just ride on the over sized wings in the dryer and don't dry. The biggest problem and one I would like to have you take care of is that the filter screen is waffled and the lint scrapes off of parts of it when I pull it out of the dryer. Therefore about half of our lint is falling down into the bottom of the dryer. If I had a filter that was made properly that wouldn't happen. I vacuum the lint that I can reach but most is inaccessible. I think this will eventually cause a problem with the dryer so I would like the filter replaced.

    I Absolutely Love This Dryer!

    By judyp

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Electric Steam Dryer:

    I was reluctant to go with a steam dryer but am so glad I did. I was able to steam the "packaging" wrinkles right out of the new drapes I just purchased! How wonderful not to have to iron them... Love it, love it, LOVE IT!

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Electric Steam Dryer:

    My new Whirlpool Cabrio is amazing ! I never realized I needed a new washer and dryer till my husband made me buy a new pair. I have already noticed a difference in my electric bill. My clothes are so much cleaner and fresher smelling.

    Best Purchase we have ever made on an appliance

    By jroberts57

    from Brandon, MS, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Electric Steam Dryer:

    I have always owned Maytag appliances and thought I had the best, but I was so wrong. Since I have purchased the Whirpool Cabrio Platinum 7.6 Dryer I realize I have been so wrong. This dryer is loaded with features and has made my life so much more simple and my clothes have never been so wonderful. There is hardly any lint in the filter even when I dry my towels. I have never been more pleased with an appliance than I have been with this dryer. Thank you Whirlpool for thinking about my needs and making them come to life to make my life more simplified plus the added bonus an doing a wonderful job.

    Love the large capacity. Is especially great when our five grandchildren stay and there's lots of laundry. The large capacity cuts down on the amount of loads to do.
