Works great, looks great and is very quiet.

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.

I have owned this product one month when a metal on metal tapping sound started. The first serviceman said there was nothing wrong. I called Whirlpool customer care and they sent another serviceman. He found that the drum is defective. I asked Whirlpool to replace the entire appliance but they said no. So the repair company ordered the drum and it too was defective. I am now awaiting for another drum. Three weeks have gone by. I am wishing I had never ordered this product. And Whirlpool should be ashamed that can't give good customer care.

        Comments about Whirlpool Duet White Gas Steam Dryer:

        I have had this appliance for a month (I got it the same time I got the washer and wrote a review on that item). I love this appliance as much as the washer. Both items together was a very good investment. The dryer is fantastic, so many great cycles to choose from and it is very quiet, cannot hear it run at all. Very easy to work, select your preferences, push button(s) walk away and will ring when done. The clothes always come out soft and smelling so fresh. A special added for me is my linen closet, when I open to get a towel, the smell is so wonderful, the fragrance is very refreshing. Thank you for an amazing appliance.

              Comments about Whirlpool Duet White Gas Steam Dryer:

              After extensive research, I purchased this washer/dryer combination for the extensive number of features and price I was able to get for the pair. So far I'm pleased with the build quality and performance of the 97 models. I especially like the wrinkle prevention features, including the steam refresh option, which saves me from having to iron my button down work shirts. And boy can the dryer get hot! Towels come out fluffy and clothes wrinkle free with the wrinkle shield options. Hopefully we continue to have a trouble free experience over the years!

                                            We have had the dryer now for a couple of months. We really like it. It does a fantastic job of drying clothes. Replaced an older Kenmoore dryer with this one.

                                                  I bought my dryer less than a month ago, and I wonder why we didn't buy it sooner! Totally love it, so efficient, and very fast!

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

                                                      Friends with Duets raved about their machines, convincing me to buy these. One has had their pair twelve years, the other two and neither has had service issues.

                                                      This dryer has performed well on every setting. Sometimes I do have to run it a bit longer to make sure the items are thoroughly dry, usually when I have a number of sweatshirts in the load, but I have had to do that with my old dryer also. It is very quiet, with a nice musical, end of cycle tone (which may be turned off).

                                                      The steam cycle is well worth the extra money. Originally, I wan't going to I spend the extra money, but I am very happy we did. I have had numerous items I previously would have had to iron come out not needing even a touch up. It also has been great to throw it wrinkled items to have them come out fresh and much less wrinkled.

                                                      Great Abt delivery, with a number of dates to choose from. The Delivery people call with the approximate time, and then, again when they are 10-15 minutes away. The matching pedestals made the dryer too tall to fit under our cabinets, and so delivery took them with them and we received the credit for the price the next day.
