Product Details

Whirlpool Duet High Efficiency White Front Load Electric Dryer - WED81HEDW

Help prevent damage caused by overdrying and enjoy energy savings with the 7.4 cu. ft. Duet® front load electric 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.

  • EcoBoost™ Option -

The EcoBoost™ option saves energy by using less heat and extending cycle time. You’ll enjoy great drying performance while using less energy.

  • Wrinkle Shield™ Plus Option-

Help keep wrinkles from setting into your clean clothes for up to 140 minutes.

  • Quick Dry Cycle -

The Quick Dry cycle dries a small load in just 15 minutes.

  • Estimated Time Remaining LED Display-

Displays the estimated time remaining in the cycle, counting down until it is finished.

We are happy with the purchase of the Whirlpool High Efficiency Front Load Dryer. The Energy STAR rating will help me keep our energy costs down. I like the option to put the dryer in energy saver mode, or not. If I am in a hurry, I don't use this feature, but normally, I do.

I had always thought paying the premium prices of the Whirlpool brand also meant great quality. My husband and I bought this product along with the washing machine. We have now been using it two years and 40 days and the heating element has stopped working. We have barely used the product as its just the two of us and an infant.We maintained clean dryer hoses too. Very disappointed! And I am out another $250 on top of what I paid for the machine.

About what you'd expect from a dryer. It has a nice feature where it tumbles your occasionally tumbles your clothes until you get a chance to take them out. The price was unbeatable, though.

Comments about Whirlpool Duet High Efficiency White Front Load Electric Dryer:

Nice unit matches up with washer real nice. Dries clothes quickly and has drying options we need. Lint catcher filter doesn't work well though. Have to clean exhaust vent often.
