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.

This dryer makes doing laundry a whirl!

        Comments about Whirlpool Duet White Gas Steam Dryer:

        I received this dryer a few weeks ago and I have to admit I now enjoy doing my laundry. My clothes are softer and the wrinkles have been nonexistent due to the tumble feature if you don't take them out of the dryer right away. I am the queen of having that one dress I want to wear in 20 minutes totally wrinkled. The steam feature takes the task of ironing away as you just throw it right in...it's wrinkle free by the time your done applying your make-up. I have an adorable pug that sheds a ridiculous amount of hair...since using my Front Load Gas Steam Dryer my clothes come out hair free as it is all caught in the lint tray. The dryer holds a good amount of laundry as washing my comforter was not a problem for this powerhouse of a dryer. I highly recommend purchasing this dryer...I'm sure you will love it too!

                    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.

                          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.
