    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!

    This product comes with a lot of different features. As a result it becomes a little bit difficult to figure out how to use them all. The unit is much louder than our previous Maytag Neptune dryer. There's also a front window on the unit but I'm not sure why since you cannot see through it. The units sits higher than our older Maytag unit which caused a problem lining up the duct to the outside. Overall we are satisfied with the unit but it's nothing to brag about.

            I love my new Whirlpool washer and dryer. The dryer beeps at me when the cycle is complete. It's a great height so it's easy to get the clothes in and out.

                          I am overall very satisfied with my new dryer, but have not had occasion to use the steam cycle yet. I am quite pleased with the low setting, since I was never able to tell the difference between it and the other heat settings on my old dryer. My only disappointment is with the wrinkle shield feature, which does not keep the clothes tumbling while it cools down; it simply tosses them for a second or two periodically.

                          I love the ease of this dryer, I was very hesitant at purchasing a dryer with so many options and buttons. but I am so glad I choose this dryer.

                              The performance is great, it actually dry's my families clothes in less time that is usually specified on the timer. I noticed my electric bill declined a little when we replaced our old dryer with this new one, The only thing I wish it had was a rack to do dry flat drying, other than that best choice I've made in appliances.

                              Dryer has a huge capacity and dries even the socks stuck in the fitted sheet corners.

                                  Given all the similar products on the market these days, we found this one to be of the best value. Though we've had just a few months, it certainly performs better than we expected. The only "con" I would mention and it's not about this particular dryer, but the design of the side-opening door allows clean clothes to drop on the floor as they are removed if you're not careful.
