Product Details

Whirlpool High Efficiency White Front Load Gas Dryer - WGD81HEDW

Help prevent damage caused by overdrying and enjoy energy savings with the 7.4 cu. ft. Duet® front load gas dryer. The EcoBoost™ option with Eco Monitor uses less heat and extends cycle time for great drying performance while using less energy. You can start drying faster thanks to your high efficiency dryer with Tap Touch controls with Memory, which remember your last cycle and settings for a quick touch start. And, you'll be able to cut down on ironing by choosing the Wrinkle Shield™ Plus option to help keep wrinkles from setting into clean clothes in this front load dryer.

Key Features:

  • Advanced Moisture Sensing System-

Three built-in sensors read incoming air temperature and outgoing air temperature while monitoring moisture levels inside the dryer. This helps the drying cycle end when everything is perfectly dry, saving time and energy and helping to prevent overdrying.

  • Quad Baffles-

Four shorter, staggered baffles increase the effectiveness of the dryer for small loads and promote better, more balanced tumbling.

  • Tap Touch Controls With Memory

The sleek Tap Touch control interface allows direct access to dryer functions and remembers your last cycle and settings.

Features:

  • 7.4 Cu. Ft. Capacity -

The 7.4 cu. ft. capacity dryer offers enough space to care for loads from the Duet® washer with ease. You'll even be able to dry bulky items like comforters and sleeping bags.

Don't buy it.

Comments about Whirlpool High Efficiency White Front Load Gas Dryer:

This dryer is a huge disappointment. The buttons on the front panel are so sensitive that if anything touches or just passes over the power button, it will turn off. I didn't realize how much I could brush up against it (while folding clothes or laying a shirt across the top of dryer to dry flat) until now. And why does it need to chime every time I turn it on or choose a cycle? It's headache inducing. Clothes dry fine, but I really miss my old dryer with a dial to turn to set cycle time. Bells and whistles are confusing and annoying.

Just ok

By 

from Riverside County, CA, United States

Comments about Whirlpool High Efficiency White Front Load Gas Dryer:

Really nothing fancy wasn't that impressed. It seems like it still takes a long time to dry the clothes. And if it's a full load they aren't even all dry at the end of the cycle.
