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.

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Gas Dryer:
I do not have a scanner so I cannot send photo, but I have my washer and dryer only about a month and I thought at first it might be difficult to operate, but I really like it a lot and find it easy to use.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

dryer is very quiet and generally works great. but then there are times when i have to use the manual / timed dry cycle AFTER using the other cycles. there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it (happens with clothes, towels, etc)
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I am very happy with my puchase of the Whirlpool Cabrio dryer. It is very efficient, and dries my clothes the 1st time. I also love the light inside, and the door. (I believe they call it a basket door. All I know is my socks fall onto the open door instead of the floor when I am pulling my clothes out.) The only thing I do not like is that the top of the dryer is not flat, and so you cannot set a basket up there- it will slide right off.
Great value for the price

Just using fro a couple weeks so far and I love it!
Faulty Dry load sensor
from Pittsburgh, PA
Purchased my gas dryer 2 months ago. I cannot get the Auto Dry sensor to work consistently. Sometimes it works OK, but many times it shuts off the load prematurely, leaving damp clothes in the basket. I usually then switch the load to timed dry to finish. This failure to dry occurs on both the normal setting and the heavy duty setting. Not Happy. Curtis R. Cooper

We lost our dryer to a breakdown, but are very happy that we did. We purchased this dryer wanting to fit more and have it work efficiently. We have accomplished that and more. Great dryer
