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.

I've now had my new dryer for a few months, and it far has exceeded my expectations! Capacity is HUGE! My comforters fit easily and large loads dry quickly and with minimal wrinkling - HUGE plus!

Bought this 2 months ago and have not been disappointed. I buy only Whirlpool products and always happy with features and durability. Dryer it replaced was given to us, not a whirlpool.

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

I needed to replace an older Dryer. Was looking for a dryer with basic functions. This has what I need with so many more options. For the price, under 600 I felt it was a good buy.

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

We purchased these about 2 months ago. I wanted to wait to review till we had them long enough to see how well they measured up. We had another brands frontloads and loved it. I was kind of hesitant about these because the design. Its spot on. Dryer is great and drys clothes faster then our other set. Hats off to whirlpool on this one.

Great Product

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

I bought this to replace an old standby Maytag dryer with the lint filter on top of the dryer. It was in the house we recently bought. I hated that lint trap because every time you pull it out to clean it spreads all over everything. I got this dryer on a clearance closeout and am very pleased with it. It dries in half the time of my old dryer with no wrinkles. The tub is large enough for a full load from my HE washer and dries all at once instead of 2 cycles of the old dryer. I was skeptical of the steam option but decided to try it and it is wonderful! The only thing that caused the drop in rating is it is a bit noisy but tolerable. Since it is next to the kitchen it is noticible but the good options far outweigh the noise factor.
