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.

We wanted a dryer that worked well, was energy efficient, and didn't cost a fortune. This one fit the bill.
Whirlpool Cabrio gas dryer
from Marion, IN, United States
I bought this gas dryer about two months ago. I love it! I know some reviews were negative about the tilting top but I don't have any issues with it. I am able to stack clothes on top with no problem. The features are great! I love that there are so many drying options with a lot of room for large loads.
from Spring Grove, PA, United States
We recently purchased this dryer and are extremely happy with our decision. It is quite and has multiple options for your drying needs. We have propane and with this dryer it turns off when it senses the clothes are dry saving us time and money.

My wife loves this dryer. She spends a lot of time weekly drying smaller loads. It works great
from Ann Arbor, MI
This dryer seems to be much more energy efficient than my last one and has some great features, but I have had to turn it back on a number of times after clothes didn't get completely dry. The sensor that tells the dryer when the clothes are dry sometimes only senses the item nearest to it, and some other items are still damp. It's not the be all, end all dryer, but it's still better than my old one!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
