Whirlpool Cabrio High Efficiency White Gas Steam Dryer - WGD8500DWH

8.8 cu. ft. Cabrio® High-Efficiency Gas Steam Dryer
Help prevent damage caused by overdrying and spend less time in the laundry room with the 8.8 cu. ft. Cabrio® high-efficiency gas steam dryer. It features Advanced Moisture Sensing that senses the needs of each load and adapts drying times, so that every load stops when clothes are perfectly dry. Four shorter, quad baffles bring more balanced tumbling results, even on small loads. And it's a steam dryer with cycles that help reduce wrinkles and odors so that clothes are refreshed without needing to be rewashed.

Features:

  • 8.8 Cu. Ft. Capacity
    The 8.8 cu. ft. capacity dryer dries more than four baskets of laundry in one load.
  • Advanced Moisture Sensing
    Advanced Moisture Sensing continuously monitors heat and moisture levels to automatically end the cycle when clothes are perfectly dry, helping to prevent overdrying and damage to fabrics.
  • Steam Refresh Cycle
    The Steam Refresh cycle uses water and heat to relax wrinkles and reduce odors from clothes in just 22 minutes. It's ideal for those items you'd rather not rewash.
  • Wrinkle Shield™ Plus Option With Steam
    Help keep wrinkles from setting into your clean clothes for up to 140 minutes. These models use the added benefit of steam for even better wrinkle-fighting performance.
  • Quad Baffles
    Four shorter, baffles tumble clothes in a randomized pattern, allowing items to open up more freely. This helps increase the effectiveness of the dryer for small loads and promote better, more balanced tumbling.

In shopping for this washer/dryer set, we preferred the comparable LG brand, but due to lack of immediate availability,we ended up with the Whirlpool Cabrios.
The styling is cool and my wife enjoyed the touch buttons, blue LED Lights and the button tones.
One feature I did not like right off the bat is the cheap workings of the dryer door. The plastic squeaked and felt of less quality than the LG.
I wished it came with the shoe rack, but apparently that is extra (this does come with the similar LG dryer).
We purchased the gas dryer (as opposed to the electric) as it is more efficient. After running a test load, our next load had some dark streaks on a couple of garments that I assume has something to do with initial combustion of the gas (albeit the second load).
After our first load load of towels, I noticed some towels had some snags on them that I hadn't remembered noticing before. After our second load of towels, many of our them had snaggs. After some look into the drum, I found towel threads caught between the nut and washer at the center of the rear of the drum. There was another thread caught under a screw head just above the inside of the door.
After a warranty service call, the technician tightened the screw and nut about a quarter turn and asked us to try that. I'm not sure this will resolve the issue, but we decided to trade it out for the LG appliances and not dry any more towels in this Whirlpool.
As far as the washer, we liked that it had the steam wash feature compared to the similar LG.
Also, and this may be due to the unit using such a low amount of water for each load, but clothes come out of the washer with lint and fuzz on them. And after throwing in some pants that were folded, I pulled them out folded as well, so I'm not sure how well the clothes get agitated during a cycle to remove dirt.
All-in-all, I give the units three stars. They look cool, but seem to have some design flaws.

heated air intake gets really hot!

By 

from Plainfield

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Cabrio High Efficiency Red Gas Steam Dryer:

Maybe the error is on my side, but when I select pre program options: (what to dry button) "casuals" and (how to dry button) "normal" the heat is on the hot side. The heat is high enough that pillow cases and running shorts will melt when they make contact with the heat intake grate. They way to fix this is to change the grate to a material that does not conduct so much heat. The temporary fix for my family is to separate clothes on the slightly delicate side to be dryed by themselves on low heat. That translates into more dryer cycles.

Replaced a Bosch front load dryer (gas) with the Cabrio- love the steam feature- clothes are not as wrinkled. Large capacity and very quite, had three weeks and love the many features.

This dryer is basically very good. The only feature that I'm not thrilled with is the steam refresh. It makes the clothes a bit too wet and there is a musty smell when I use it.
