    I should have done even more research. I probably didn't need to purchase such a high end pair. Liked my previous models. They were older and needed repair more frequently.

          This washer/dryer unit wasn't my first because I initially purchased a front load unit but Andy, the delivery driver, recommended that I go with the Cabrio since it has a bigger capacity for both washer/dryer. After a few washes, it works great. I like the fact that for a top load machine that it doesn't have the traditional agitator. That means you wash for more clothes, etc in less time using less water. That amounts to a bigger savings.

          Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Gas Steam Dryer:

          At the beginning of the cycle, the drum makes a loud noise (annoying if you plan on being within 10ft of the machine, but if yours is located away from where you plan to be the noise won't matter). About 5 min into the cycle, the noise lessens. I also propped some clothes underneath the front of the machine in-between the legs and that seems to have lessened the drum noise as well. The machine's drying capabilities are great - the initial drum noise is the only negative.

            It's quick, quiet and efficient. After suffering through using a 25 year old washer dryer set, I should have upgraded a long time ago. I highly recommend this product and the professional installation by Abt. It's more than worth it.

                Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Gas Steam Dryer:

                So happy I decided to purchase this brand/model dryer based on the recommendation of family members and friends. I thought my former dryer was doing an adequate job but realized just how long it was taking to dry clothes after using this unit for over a month. I have experimented with each of the various cycles for drying including the steam cycle and the machine has performed well. Hope to see a reduction in energy costs over the next couple of billing cycles. So far I have no complaints whatsoever.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Quick turnaround on delivery and installation of the dryer and matching washer (which had stopped working). The product arrived in good condition and Abt installers were courteous and efficient in performing the required set-up. They also took the time to explain basic operating functions as well. Appreciate this type of customer service which always seems to be consistent with our purchases from Abt.
