I just replaced my 34 year old Whirlpool dryer with this new one. My 34 year old dryer still worked great, but I was tired of not having an auto dry/sensor dry option. It also ran quite hot with only two temperature settings, with black interior, and no light. So you imagine this new dryer is quite an upgrade! I love having ex low, low, medium and high temperature settings. I love having the auto dry (accu dry). As long as you don't mix fabrics it works great. If you mix fabrics, ex. synthetic with cotton and set it to Eco or damp dry, the synthetic will be dry, but the cotton will be damp. If all cotton, or all synthetic, it will all be dry or all damp dry depending on what you set it at. Having a white interior, light and hamper door makes getting clothes out so easy, let alone finding black socks! I can't believe dryers were even ever designed with black interiors. The dryer is not "quiet" but is not terribly noisy. I don't think it has soundproofing, but at this price point that would be icing on the cake. I chose this dryer for these reasons: five temp settings (if you include no heat), auto sensor drying (this one uses Accu dry), mechanical rotary dials, this was important to me. My last dryer lasted a long time, rotary dials last much longer than computer chips. Also great reviews, Whirlpool name, hamper door, and traditional lint trap - collects much more lint than the little ones in more expensive dryers. I have a fancy front load washer that is computer chip driven and has all kinds of wonderful features which i love, but for the dryer, i just wanted something simple that wouldn't over dry my clothes and also had multiple temperature settings. It is perfect!

This is the third Whirlpool dryer I have owned. The first one lasted 22 years with only one service call to repair a thermocouple(sp?). The second one lasted 22 years with no service calls. The belt finally broke but that was all that was wrong with it. I thought that since it was 22 years old, maybe I should not spend the money to repair but purchase a new one. Now compared to the two I had in the past, this one does not have the features and does not appear to be as solid in construction. The first one had a germicide light, the second one did not have any light; however, both had a panel underneath the door that could be removed for cleaning. The new one does not and I do not like that. It means that I will have to have a service person to come out to clean any lint that accumulates. I did this cleaning myself about once a year. Now I cannot and it will mean an extra expense. The dryer works fine and I do like the wrinkle prevent feature; however, I do not think this dryer will last 22 years. That does not really matter because I probably will be gone before that happens as I am 72 years old.l Thank you for giving me an opportunity to put in my two cents worth.

Just what I needed

Comments about Whirlpool Front Loading White Gas Dryer:
I had a Whirlpool dryer for 20 years and was very happy with it. When I needed to replace it I stayed with Whirlpool. I wanted to purchase one with basic features which this dryer has and so far I have been happy with the dryer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comment on this review
Very quiet and efficient!
By Dee H
from Grand Rapids, MI, United States
I bought this dryer to replace an old dryer that broke down. I love how big and spacious it is! There is a light inside that helps you to see the clothes as you load and unload the dryer. It is fairly quiet. Also has an option for 'wrinkle guard' which I do not really use, but is great for when you can't unload the dryer right away. I am very happy that it also has the sensor dry, which my old one had as well. The only thing that I do not care for is that the lint deposit is at the top, so it leaves lint on the top of the dryer. It is a great dryer!

machine works well except the warning sound when the cycle ends could be louder or longer or ?
By Tina Patel
When we bought this it looked really nice. But using it was unique. It is very quite and doesn't bother anyone during the night. Bey great product and you should by it. It was a great price for a awsome dryer.
Great basic Washer and Dryer
from Simi Valley, CA, United States
Searched a long time finding so many new models with lots of unnecessary bells and whistles which will break in a short period of time. I simply had no desire to spend money I did not have for these features. Found this model to fill my needs extremely well. No complaints!
from Illinois, United States
I recently purchased this dryer and I love it. It works efficiently by drying the clothes quickly. It's a very quiet machine as well. I am definitely happy that I made this purchase!!
Great machine for the price
By 2015 buyer
from Costa Mesa, CA
I was looking for something inexpensive without a bunch of bells and whistles. This fits the bill perfectly. I purchased this about two months ago and have no complaints.
great dryer,love it
from West Sacramento, CA, United States
great appliances warrenties are great, life of whirlpools are lasting,i our last dryer lasted 11 years.
It's getting the job done.
from Clemson, SC, United States
This machine is getting the job done. We had an intelli dry machine previously so I'm not sure if this machine takes longer to dry clothes or if I was unaware of the drying time when I had the intelli dry technology. This machine appears to take much longer to dry clothes and sometimes requires an additional cycle.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

By Gas is better
from Northern Virginia
We've had this gas dryer for several months now and it works great. We replaced our old Whirlpool gas dryer, because it stopped heating after 18, yes 18, years! That dryer need no/no maintenance, not even a drive belt. The only thing we would improve with this dryer is to add a light inside like our last Whirlpool. Still, the capacity for this one is larger.
