In 2011, I moved into my current home and the previous owners had left their washer and dryer behind - which I was more than happy with... until I saw the state of the dryer. Opening the door the first time, I thought I was looking into a black hole. This thing was so old the coating had worn off the inside of the drum. I was hesitant to put my clothes in there at all... but I did, as a new dryer was fairly low on my list of priorities if I had one that technically worked, even if it wasn't aesthetically pleasing.Well, this past August when that dryer finally bit the dust I was glad to find this model - it is excellently and frequently reviewed across several websites and is a straightforward machine. I don't need something with a sweater dryer, steam dry, or something that promises to do my taxes. As a matter of fact, this machine has more features and settings than my 25+ year old machine that broke down - but just enough to be useful - like extended tumble and easily selectable temperature settings. The capacity is excellent, it has no problem efficiently drying blankets and towels, and manages even a large load of clothing with ease.Thanks for a well-designed appliance that gets the job done!

We bought this because it's the closest new model to our old Whirlpool dryer, which gave many years of excellent service. It had a setting like the The "energy preferred" setting leaves clothes damp, especially mixed loads. We called the Abt service department about this, and apparently it is a frequent question. Easily solved by increasing the so called "level of dryness" to "more dry," but one wonders why Whirlpool bothers with a useless setting. It isn't energy efficient, either. The clothes have to be dry. The longer you have to run the unit to do that, the more energy, both gas and electric, you use. This looks like a "feature" required by the ad wonks, rather than something from an engineer. It's not that the dryer doesn't work. It does, but the control labeling "energy preferred" is just there as a selling point, not as a functional setting. Ignore it and you'll be happy.However, once you learn its quirks, it works well. I'm saying I'd recommend it to a friend, but with the caveat above.

from Grand Blanc, MI
I bought this to replace a prior version. It is basically the same, but bigger drug. Does dry a lot quicker than the older one. My only complaint is the back of the machine. It is bulkier than older models, most likely from the bigger drum. But that bulkiness adds 2 inches from the wall, thus making less space in the laundry room. Door opens wide to get to clothes easier. Easy installation.

It does what it is supposed to do.
Comments about Whirlpool White Gas Dryer:
Ok dryer, nothing fancy but has all the features you need, EXCEPT no light inside dryer! You would think in this day and age that a light would be a standard feature! Didn't even think I'd have to ask about something so basic. Disappointed that salesman didn't point that out. Maybe he didn't think it wouldn't have one either!
Service and delivery comments:
Good service, as usual.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Have had this dryer for a month now, works great! Had to pay a plumber to convert it to propane, so the converter kit will not be the only extra charge. Other than that, it works fine.
Love everything about my new dryer

By Papa Z!
When our old dryer died, :( , we rushed right out and checked out your products. The salesman gave us ample information and we chose this dryer with the heavy duty cycle. We have a lot of blankets and heavy pads. They dry beautifully!!! Thank you, Whirlpool, for manufacturing an affordable basic dryer that doesn't skimp on performance!!!
