I purchased this dryer (WGD8500BW) along with the matching washer (WTW8500BW) and I absolutely LOVE both of them! I use all the settings on this dryer and I really enjoy the way the door is wide open with the top opening set back in it. I don't have to bend over to get the clothes into the dryer from the washer, I just drop them in....EASY! At first my clothes were "not quite" getting dry enough for my liking at the end of the cycles and I was having to add time, which I didn't like. BUT, I read the owners manual and EASILY fixed this issue. I just followed the directions to make a global setting change that changed the cycles to automatically dry my clothes 15% more. Now at the end of any cycle, my clothes are perfectly dry and ready to fold!!! LOVED THAT!! I would definitely recommend this product!

Using this dryer on its default Normal setting with clothes that were washed using the Normal setting takes a significant amount of time--more than an hour in many cases. And even after completing the cycle, frequently items come out more damp than we'd like. It is possible for two washer loads to be complete before one dryer load has finished in our house, so wet clothes must wait to be dried. We've played around with modifying the settings, but sometimes you can't increase the dryness level depending on the cycle setting. We will probably start to choose manual settings until we find a setting that works more quickly and consistently.
On several occasions, the Check Vent light has come on. I'm not quite sure why, as we empty the lint screen after each load and the vent hose is practically new. Most often, the light does not come on again once the next load has started and I haven't done anything except clean the lint screen. Kind of like the boy who cried wolf...
Overall, it's a nice looking machine but we're a bit disappointed with the performance using the preset options.

The best purchase ever!

By 

from Findlay, OH

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Hight Effeciency Chrome Shadow Gas Steam Dryer:

My dryer purchase turned out to be a happy accident. Let me go back a bit, My first washer dryer purchase were Whirlpool brand. They lasted me 18 years and had been well used. I replaced them with another brand and after only 7 years, I found myself in need of a new gas dryer immediately. When I went to look for one, I knew that I would have to take whatever was in the store because I needed one now and a gas dryer had to be ordered and would take up to 3 weeks to have one delivered. I was impressed by the look and overwhelmed by the features but I took a leap of faith because it was a Whirlpool. The first time I used it I was very impressed. The control panel was easy to navigate. The size is large enough to accommodate a king size comforter with room to spare. The dry sense feature keeps you from over drying anything. I haven't used the steam or sanitize features yet but my husband says they are wonderful. I will be purchasing the washer very soon!

I bought this when we moved recently, and my wife is very happy with it. It is nice and quiet and dries clothes perfectly. Because it is a gas dryer, we expect energy savings for years to come!

Great Dryer!

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Hight Effeciency Chrome Shadow Gas Steam Dryer:

I bought this dryer last year after my basement flooded. I'm really happy with my choice of dryer. The Steam Cycle is great for taking out wrinkles in clothes. The moisture sensor allows the clothes to dry without overheating them and causing shrinkage.

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio Hight Effeciency Chrome Shadow Gas Steam Dryer:

One year to the day of delivery of the dryer it required repair of a defective part. Our repairman indicated that he had not seen a crack at this location in the ignitor in his 41 years of appliance repair.
