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.

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

Love that I can refresh comforters and quilts with the steam feature. Dries jeans and towels fast! I do wish I could adjust the alert to be a bit louder though. Beautiful set! I especially like the redesign of the lint basket...so much better than the one before! Thank you for that.
