This unit replaced our 14-year old unit (another Whirlpool). The Cabrio is narrower yet deeper. Very light and extremely silent!! My wife normally runs it at night, close to our bedtime, and with the old unit, we could hear it upstairs. Not this Cabrio unit. We are all very happy with it!!
The only objection we have to the design of the unit is that the top is sloped towards the front and does not allow us to rest the clothes basket on it. Not sure why Whirlpool designed it this way.

Hardly worth the extra money

Only dries completely on HIGH and timer. Sensor does not work correctly.
End of cycle and wrinkle guard sounder is so quiet you cannot hear it above the noise of the running dryer. ...Read complete review

Only dries completely on HIGH and timer. Sensor does not work correctly.
End of cycle and wrinkle guard sounder is so quiet you cannot hear it above the noise of the running dryer. Certainly cannot hear sounder in another room rendering the sounder useless.
Specifications say "LED drum light". Dryer has plain old incandescant bulb.
Save your money; buy a cheaper model!

              Our repair man recommended that we buy Whirlpool when our 7 year old dryer went kaput! So, we did! We are so happy with it. I would buy another Whirlpool again!

                          I purchase this dryer and the first thing I notice was how quick it dried my clothes! I double check the clothes and wow already dried. Very quiet operation too. I soon hope to purchase the matching washing machine.

                                Once our old, faithful dryer died, we opted to get this HE model that matched our washer (purchased three years prior). I'm so glad we opted for this model. It is the perfect size, doesn't "fry up" our clothes (a problem with our old dryer) and it allows me to damp dry items to speed up the flat-drying process, which comes in handy in these cold, winter months. I haven't tried all of the features but I'm looking forward to using them when the need arises. Great value for the capabilities!
