I chose Whirlpool because their products are generally very reliable. They are also the only brand that makes a dryer with the door that opens downward. Until someone invents a dryer with a door on the top of the machine, Iâ€™ll need the open door to catch any clothes I might drop as I transfer them from the washer. I have a bad back and canâ€™t bend to place each handful of clothes into the dryer drum, so I need that open door to drop the handfuls of clothes on until it builds up and then I can just push the clothes into the dryer. It's very attractive with the glass center and you can make sure everything's moving nicely. The reason I only gave this dryer 3 stars for Design is that (and I didnâ€™t realize this at the store) the top of the dryer is curved so the surface is on a curved slant. I donâ€™t mean that it needs adjusting with the leg adjusters. So when I put my laundry basket on top of it, it slid right off. Same thing when I folded clothes and wanted to stack them on the dryer. Why on Earth anyone thought a slanted top was a good idea is beyond me. I remedied this by putting a rubbery, slip-proof liner on it. See pictures. As for the digital controls, they seem to mostly be pre-programmed. I was used to selecting my own temp and dryness level. With the pre-programmed dial, it prevents me from altering their levels except for a few adjustments. The buzzer has a loud and soft setting. The loud isn't loud enough for me to hear it upstairs. Easy to access and clean the lint screen that is right at the open door. Love the extra large drum! It can take on my extra large washer loads with room to spare!

I bought this dryer about 3 weeks ago after doing significant reading of the various Whirlpool units. The first thing I noticed was the signal tone. My dryer is in the basement. It sounds more like a cell phone tone. If you put your clothes in the dryer and go about doing another things around the house you will definitely not hear this tone. My previous dryer had a buzzer which you could hear almost anywhere in the house. Second, the "wrinkle shield". They should have called this the "wrinkle maker". This unit stops for too long and then tumbles for less then 30 seconds. My last Whirlpool stopped for a couple minutes and tumbled again. Each time buzzing. Third, drying is inconsistent. If the items are not dry, you have to turn off the unit. Then, turn it back on and re-set settings in order to get the load dry the second time. I had one load which I had to put through three times before it was dried satisfactory. Some setting options only work with "automatic" settings and other only work with "manual" settings. One thing others have mentioned is the slanted top. Where did that come from? It does not effect me since I have a table to put clothes on. But, why? Has Whirlpool out smarted it self this time? Did they test this unit in a real world environment after designing it? I don't think so. I'm seriously considering returning this unit.

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Gas Dryer:
MWe had a electrie Cabrio W"hirlpool dryer before this one and we loved it. The only reason we had to get a new one was because we moved and our new house was fit with a gas dryer. We love the large size, excellent performance, and price for this dryer. Overall, it is a wonderful purchase, especially for a big family like ours.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bought this a few months ago and very happy with it. Love the Sanitize feature.
It does everything I had hoped it would do, and easy to work for me.

I am glad I purchased this dryer, but wish a year ago I had bought the matching washing machine when my other one broke down. But too late now. I like the one I did buy, but would like the matching one 2 my new dryer, but can't afford 2 change it. My friends bought the set, & they love it 2.

have bought the cabrio series pair washer / dryer about 2 months ago. with a family of 6, you can imagine the amount of clothes washed on a weekly basis. our other set where the old styles at least 10 yrs. old. we are amazed at how clean & so much fresher the end result s are with the amount of water it uses. i still watch it in amazement
What a Difference!!
from Clarkston, MI, United States
Have been using this new dryer for a month and a half. What a difference from our old dryer. Many more options, quieter operation, faster drying - sorry to have waited so long before replacing a still operating but very old Whirlpool!!
State of the art features!!
from Westwood, MA, United States
Sad to say, I had to replace my 19 yr. old Whirlpool dryer. I chose to consider only a Whirlpool product! My old dryer was problem and repair free for all of those years. I love my new one with all of the newer options!! The only recommendation that I have would be that the end of the drying cycle signal be louder and more annoying...I constantly miss the sound and my hearing is perfect, can hear a pin drop!!

I like the wrinkle feature and that you can continue to dry once it has stopped by just pushing a button.
High end features-affordable and dependable!
from Old Bridge Township, NJ, United States
Buying a new large appliance can be a stressful experience. We all want the fancy features of a high end product, without paying high end prices. Enter the Whirlpool Cabrio Dryer! You are given the luxury of all the high end features, such as sanitizing and touch up, at a price that anyone will find fair and attainable! The dryer itself is a compact, modern, sleek design. Don't be fooled! Open the dryer door to reveal an extremely spacious interior, capable of handling the largest load of towels, or the most delicate blouse! Dryer operates at the lowest possible sound level. Add to this the dependability of a Whirlpool product, and the deal is closed! And if you are wondering how I know Whirlpool is so dependable....my Whirlpool refrigerator is 25 years old and still going strong! This product is a winner!
