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!

By 

from Lancaster, Ca

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool White Cabrio High Efficiency Gas Dryer:

I Love this dryer! Everything comes out so fluffy, soft and dry!! I am 76 so I did NOT want something that has a million setting. It is so easy to set!!! It has different settings that large and simple.. It has easy access to the filter. The buttons are simple to read and select, BEST clothes dryer I have ever owned.

Disappointed

By 

from Orchard Park, NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool White Cabrio High Efficiency Gas Dryer:

For the past 40 years I have always purchased Whirlpool dryers and have been extremely satisfied with them until I purchased this dryer. The automatic drying cycle does not dry the clothes if you set the temperature to the low setting. I must reset the dryer and run it through the cycle again. Since the majority of clothing suggests drying on low temperature this dryers inability to do this properly is a huge inconvenience. I would not recommend this dryer.

All is good.

Comments about Whirlpool White Cabrio High Efficiency Gas Dryer:

I replaced a Whirlpool washer because although it was not giving me a problem I am putting in new stairs and railing to downstairs and hoped to not have to worry about getting another one downstairs and having to remove the rail. My old one I really liked more because it had a flat top and things would not roll off! Also the door closed itself. This one I have to really slam shut. Not exactly problems just had me looking all over the first time I used it to find out why it would not start. Whirlpool is the only one making a hamper door and I think it is insane to having anything but. What the heck is the number 1-2?? The number of people in my house is ONE and I am not pregnant.

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!

Comments about Whirlpool White Cabrio High Efficiency Gas Dryer:

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.

Great Dryer!

By 

from Maplewood, NJ, United States

Comments about Whirlpool White Cabrio High Efficiency Gas Dryer:

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!
