    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.

        Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum HE White Electric Steam Dryer:

        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.

                  Purchased this item after my 12 year old competitor brand set finally gave out and repairs were more than the cost of buying new. Absolutely love the size, features, and ease of use of this unit. Drying time is super efficient; steam feature has given my iron a well deserved break. Would recommend this unit highly; just make sure it will fit as it is larger than your traditional older style unit. we had to remove the door to get the unit into our laundry area but well worth the trouble. Whirlpool never fails me!

                      What I like about this dryer are all the settings. You can adjust to dry to any drying level imaginable with the built in drying sensor. I especially like the damp dry setting for the clothes I do not want to dry all the way. With my old dryer I had to keep checking on them. It also has a steam dry feature-great for getting wrinkles out and a light when you open the door. I would definately recommend this dryer.

                                  Excellent dryer, large capacity allows us to only have to dry 2 loads - one for whites & one for darks (very appreciated time saver with two young girls), very easy to use, love the many different cycle options, especially the steam cycle option, clothes come out softer than any other dryer I have used , very highly energy efficient saving on operating costs, very consistent dryness levels after each cycle (it senses the weight of the clothes & automatically adjusts the drying time to achieve very consistent drying levels), love the wrinkle free option that works very well, it is very easy to use. I highly recommend this dryer & the washer that goes with it.
