    I have had front loaders for the last 3 years and hate them. They smell and don't have any extra features that this pair doesn't have. I love the glass top so I can see what's going on in there. I honestly didn't think this washer would clean the clothes well since it doesn't have an agitator, but filthy clothes come out perfectly clean. I use powdered detergent since I had such an issue with liquid detergent when using my front loaders. I'm sure the liquid would be fine though. I also Leave the top of the washer open after I do clothes to make sure there is absolutely no mildew smell. I love the hand wash option and think the soak feature is unbelievable since I don't have a sink in my laundry room to soak clothes. I love the steam cycle feature on the dryer, it gets wrinkles out wonderfully! I haven't used an iron since I got this dryer :) I would recommend this washer and dryer to everyone. I did a lot of research before purchasing and I am so happy I went with these. They are a bit pricey, but having a perfect product that has all the features I need, made it worth every penny. Love, love, love my new washer and dryer, I actually get excited when it's time to do laundry!

    Dries well enough most of the time but not as good as my old dryer that was 30+ years old. If clothes are of a mixed type the buzzer goes off before they are all dry. Also when there are only a couple items they just ride on the over sized wings in the dryer and don't dry. The biggest problem and one I would like to have you take care of is that the filter screen is waffled and the lint scrapes off of parts of it when I pull it out of the dryer. Therefore about half of our lint is falling down into the bottom of the dryer. If I had a filter that was made properly that wouldn't happen. I vacuum the lint that I can reach but most is inaccessible. I think this will eventually cause a problem with the dryer so I would like the filter replaced.

      Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Electric Steam Dryer:

      I have had this dryer for about three months. It dries quickly and I love the wrinkle guard feature. Don't use the steam option since I don't have a way to connect it to water, but It wasn't an important feature for me.

      Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Electric Steam Dryer:

      I was so excited when i purchased the Whirlpool washer and dryer set. They are so big, that means i can wash one big load verses washing two loads of whites. That was one of the reasons i choose this brand again. I have only used Whirlpool appliances. I have a Whirlpool refrigerator that I have had for over 20 years and it is still running and i have not had any problems with it. My stove and microwave are whirlpool items as well

      Longest dry time i've ever seen

      Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Electric Steam Dryer:

      The dry time and the fact that you can't have any bends in your exhaust in without it showing up a low flow light makes me only give an average rating

      Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Electric Steam Dryer:

      I was reluctant to go with a steam dryer but am so glad I did. I was able to steam the "packaging" wrinkles right out of the new drapes I just purchased! How wonderful not to have to iron them... Love it, love it, LOVE IT!

      Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio White Electric Steam Dryer:

      My new Whirlpool Cabrio is amazing ! I never realized I needed a new washer and dryer till my husband made me buy a new pair. I have already noticed a difference in my electric bill. My clothes are so much cleaner and fresher smelling.
