      Comments about Whirlpool Duet Diamond Steel Gas Steam Dryer:

      I bought this thinking it is a smart appliance just like its electric brother (or sister), but it's not.
      It has all the features the electric one does minus the WI-FI.
      It does have lots of sensors and it warns you of clothes needed re-positioning occasionally. Great, but you need to be listening for it's different chimes. A text would be great.
      Different buttons requires different pressure to act and some even stick out further then others. Too bad, otherwise a great product.
      The steaming of the clothes works and it's nice it is connected to water (not like the competitors that ask you to bring water t the thirsty dryer), but I am a little suspicious of their quick refresh options. I did not see much improvement using it.
