I bought this set a couple weeks ago & I love it! They have cut my laundry time to a quarter. My son has allergies so the steam & sanitize cycles have been amazing. Also the soft closing lid has been a life saver for curious fingers. The sleek look works well & will be a part of my home for many years. The one & Only Con is because of the larger capacity the dryer sits farther out from the wall than previous sets. So just double check measurements! I haven't noticed this much in our room though. As gentle in cloths as a front load, better clean, no moldy smells, & no matinance of seals & such.

I purchased this Cabrio back in February but it was on backorder for 6 weeks. Arrived early April and having it only a month needed to call for service. Technician said installation was not completed properly - legs were too low - so the motor was rubbing/burning the bottom of drain pan (which needed to be replaced - another $30 down the drain). Technician adjusted legs, ran diagnostic test and said everything was good. 20 minutes later after putting in a load of laundry same issue was happening… horrible sound/shaking. Technician came back within the hour and determined that my month-old machine needed a new suspension kit… the kicker was the suspension kit was on backorder and no ETA!!!! Called the place where I bought it told them I wanted new machine - they couldn't get me one for another 6 weeks. Frustration building, I found same washing machine at another appliance store had it delivered 2 days later and original store came back for the defective machine (charging $75 for return fee).

Stil not thrilled with this machine. My old machine was the best - wish I didn't get rid of it. This machine is noisy, extremely deep (need to stand on tip-toes to get to bottom of drum) to retrieve cloths… They don't make appliances like they used.

Huge Capacity - Quiet Operation

Comments about Whirlpool 8.8 Cu. Ft. White Carbio High-Efficiency Electric Steam Dryer:

This washer is amazing for its versatility and how well it cleans clothes. It is solid and unlike its frontloading counterparts, it doesn't leak water on the floor when you do a large load. While the "no agitator" setup took a few loads for me to really believe it worked, it does work and our clothes are cleaned very efficiently. The variety and endless combination of wash cycles will handle anything I've thrown at it so far.

Comments about Whirlpool 8.8 Cu. Ft. White Carbio High-Efficiency Electric Steam Dryer:

Much faster at drying than my old dryer. I have learned that if you rely on the dryness sensor to stop the machine, you must have very similar materials drying. For instance, terry cloth towels and cotton tee shirts dry at different rates even though they are both cotton. I haven't used the steam feature.

Great Features

By 

from Florence, SC

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 8.8 Cu. Ft. White Carbio High-Efficiency Electric Steam Dryer:

We bought this after leaving our old ones in our house that we sold. Using second hand appliances in our temporary rental house that were smaller, slower, less efficient, and loud continuously reminded us what we were missing. Very large capacity, quiet laundering, efficiency, so many settings to choose from, and simple yet effective lint filter system are just a few of the features that we enjoy with our dryer.
