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.

Great features and easy to use

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Gas Dryer:
We bought this Cabrio gas dryer to replace a 26 year old dryer, and look forward to a similarly long life with this one. The controls are a nice mix of electronic and mechanical. They are easy to use and understand, and the display clearly indicates which features you have chosen. The clothes are accurately dried. I like the little display window which estimates the time remaining. This was one of the few models which had a hamper style door, which works very well in our space. I also like the light in the drum when the door is opened. This model is a good value for the price. While other models seemed to have fancier (and more complicated) controls, I can't imagine that they do a better job than this one does at producing dry, unwrinkled clothes. I also like the styling.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love the timer display and the drum light. The door is taking a little getting use to but it's great for small loads that you can fold as you take it out of the dryer
Super Quiet and Quick! Great buy. Glad I made this purchase.

My new Whirlpool dryer
Love love love my new dryer...Cannot say enough, very simple and easy to use. It has just the right amount of cycles and the clothes come out perfect. I can now put in my just washed clothes instead of 1/2 loads. Very pleased and satisfied with my purchase.

I like the many control options this dryer has to offer. The control panel is well laid out and easy to operate. The gas dryer I purchased dries very quick and efficient.
