We upgraded to this dryer from a 13 year old run-of-the-mill electric dryer. I've never owned a gas dryer before, but I'm very impressed. The matching washer already gets our clothes nearly dry, but this gas dryer does great finishing the job. Our clothes come out with less static and feel fluffier. I also love the sound dampening feature. Buttons and zippers are much quieter than with my old dryer. The auto-drying time sensor gets confused sometimes, requiring slightly damp clothes to go for another few minutes. Overall we are very happy with our new gas dryer.

This dryer chronically under dries everything. It is not uncommon for garments or sheets to come out damp. Synthetic blankets are the worst; the dryer shuts off after a minute or two without any drying. Since the purpose of this appliance is to dry things, its failure to do so renders it rather useless. It is my sincerest hope that the team of nitwits at Whirlpool responsible for the design of this dryer is one day held accountable for their failures. Until then, do yourself a favor and buy something else. This is American engineering at its worst.

    Loud spin cycle

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 cu. ft. Stainless Steel Duet Steam Dryer:

    Of all the American made appliances that we bought for our new home, only Whirlpool worked as expected right out of the box.
    The dryer can be loud on the towel cycle. Otherwise, very pleased! Love the dark color. At the time, the whirlpool web site incorrectly identified the color with the model numbers. We requested samples from the company and got the wrong info. So go to a store to verify before buying. Glad the dealer was able to get us the color we wanted.
