I really like the ease of use control panel and the great way the dryer dries my clothes. I like the reminder sound it plays when the cycle is finished. What I think needs improvement is the instruction on how to reverse the door. I spend more time than I wanted trying to get the hinges set correctly. I think more details on how to set them for a left-side hinge would help. I went to Lowes to see one with the left-side hinges and they did not have any. All of the models of dryers were right-side hinged. Other than that little challenge, I really love my new dryer.

This dryer has a design flaw that needs to be reported. The lint catch has a gap on the bottom part of it that catches clothes. I have ruined a couple of shirts because it snags a piece of the shirt and wedges it in the corner causing it to twist and tear the fabric if its thin enough. so far It has caught shirts, towels, underwear, washclothes small throws and socks.

love the large capacity

Comments about Whirlpool Cranberry Red Cabrio High Efficiency Electric Steam Dryer:

I'm a whirlpool fan and am enjoying my new cabrio dryer. I wish the door hinge was on the left not the right because of where it goes in my utility room. I've heard the control panel can go out though, so got the warranty just in case.

Comments about Whirlpool Cranberry Red Cabrio High Efficiency Electric Steam Dryer:

Immediately after purchase had to have warped drum replaced and other parts. $650 worth of repairs had it not Been under warrantee. You should not have to replace the drum on an new dryer upon purchase. Even after repair its very noisy and continues to rattle

Excellent Purchase

By 

from Helena, AL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Cranberry Red Cabrio High Efficiency Electric Steam Dryer:

We purchased the Cabrio Washer a couple of years ago, and was more than excited to find the matching dryer when our old dryer went out. This dryer is far better than I would have expected, it is so quiet, and so quick, I am drying full loads in less that a third of the time! I am extremely pleased!

Great Capacity Dryer

By 

from Ferdale MI

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Cranberry Red Cabrio High Efficiency Electric Steam Dryer:

So far so good. Dries clothes quickly and can dry huge loads of laundry. The one thing I will say is that this is my first steam cycle dryer and I used it once so far but did not notice any difference.
