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.

Great size and features for family

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

I purchased this dryer 3 weeks ago and it was a great purchase. Our family of four with 2 young children accumulates a lot of dirty clothes. With a dryer this size and with all the features, we are spending much less time doing laundry than with our previous set. We are also very pleased with how quiet this dryer is when running. We are very happy with this purchase.

Great Dryer

By 

from Boca Raton, Florida

Verified Buyer

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

Had a Duet dryer for years. When it was time to retire, we chose this model. The only downside is the Duet fryer came with a rack for the dryer for delicate items and shoes, etc. It didn't. Of course, however, we can purchase it. 1K for a dryer and I think it should include the rack that probably costs all of 5.00 to make.
