I bought this dryer a few weeks back when my old Duet Dryer gave up the ghost.

Now it dry's clothes great (as long as you are using timed dry and high heat).

To me this is not a huge problem, as I found the same to be true of my old Duet Dryer.

But, there is a design flaw which is problematic. It has to do with the blower box and the exhaust pipe out the back of the dryer.
In the Old Duet dryer the blower box front and the exhaust pipe were one piece.
In the New Duet Dryer the blower box front and the exhaust pipe are 2 separate pieces and this is where the problem lies.
The way the exhaust pipe is mated to the blower box is with a single flat tappet screw (not a self tapping metal screw) and the exhaust pipe has a flare end that is far to big for the outlet on the blower box.
The result is that (A) The exhaust pipe "buzzes" every time the dryer is in operation {exhaust pipe moves around creating an annoying buzzing sound} & (B) as the exhaust pipe doesn't fit securely to the blower box the exhaust gas doesn't completely go out the vent pipe as is intended (Monoxide detector in house went off alerting me to this).

I did manage however to solve the issue with some Automotive Aluminum exhaust tape and furnace duct sealant paste; solving both the buzzing noise when in operation and the exhaust leak (carbon monoxide).

Bottom line is I managed to fix the problems (though I shouldn't have had to with a brand new Dryer, due to a design and Q.C. flaw); but I am fairly handy and had the appropriate supplies to rectify the problem.
This is a real problem in my opinion and should be taken into consideration if you are looking at this dryer as a replacement (especially if you have children at home).

Other thoughts, they should have left the ability to shut off the Ding at the end of the cycle (was a god send on the old model), the opening where you put clothes in is smaller with this model than the old one and there is no internal light.

Outstanding Dryer and replacement for our 15 year old dryer.

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 Cu. Ft. Duet High Efficiency White Gas Dryer:

We just relocated into our final home (at 62 years old, I'm thinking this might be our last home). It matched closely with our High Energy washer, fit perfectly, and has run like a top since May 1st.

My dryer "the Lemon"

By 

from St Petersburg, Florida

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 Cu. Ft. Duet High Efficiency White Gas Dryer:

I purchased this dryer less than 2 years ago and it is already having problems the service people cannot diagnose. It works fine most of the time, but intermittently it quits working. When it quits completely I will dump it and find something else with less electronic features (if there is such an appliance).

I detest my washer too! My clothes and linens are ruined in less than 2 years.

powerful laundry system!

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 Cu. Ft. Duet High Efficiency White Gas Dryer:

i have three sets of stackable whirlpool washer dryers - i love each and every one of them.
the clothes come out super clean - and the spin cycle is so efficient, the dryer time is negligible!
whirlpool stackables are the ONLY way to do laundry!!

Very Happy With Duet Dryer

By 

from Sioux City, IA

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 Cu. Ft. Duet High Efficiency White Gas Dryer:

I bought this about 6 weeks ago and have never been happier with an appliance purchase (except the Duet front-load washer). The dryer dries great, is quiet, and makes happy music at cycle end. I am as thrilled to do laundry today as I was 6 weeks ago.
