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.

I bought this whirlpool dryer to match my washer and I am so happy with all of the features especially it will stop drying once it sense the clothes are no longer damp.

We had to replace an old Whirpool dryer that finally kicked the bucket after 15 years of use. So, it was a no-brainer to replace it with another Whirpool. It's been a couple of months and I couldn't be happier with my decision. This baby is smooth, quiet and efficient. It's nice to know you can still trust the Whirpool name!

Love all of the economy features it dries so much faster and quieter than the old one

I've had this dryer for about6 months now. It's so quiet! Drys well on the eco seeing unless you have a lot of heavy clothes.
Does great job drying

When I first started to use this dryer, I had a bit of a problem figuring out which settings to use for effective drying for different loads, but now that I have, I am very pleased. I especially like the fluffing feature which keeps wrinkles to a minimum when clothes are not removed right away. I alsi really like the front drop-down door. One thing I don't like is the design of the top of the dryer. It slopes just enough that items set there slide off. Why in the world was the top of the dryer not made flat???

I bought this dryer a few months back, there must be something wrong because for a HE dryer it takes 5 cycles to dry towels, clothes take a few cycles. Does any one else have this problem
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Pittsburgh, PA, United States
Love the different settings, especially "Sanitize!" You have control of temps and length and I just love this dryer!
from Oakland, CA, United States
It's pretty quite compared to my old one and really efficient. It used to take 1.5 hours to dry a load and now about 40-50 mins, it's amazing.
