Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1176 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dryer This dryer is a step up from my last one. I love. The Eco setting and the three different heat levels. This dries clothes fast even on low heat. March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good service and product. No hassle. As a new single person setting up my house, I was hit with a lot of decisions at one time. The help I received at the store and upon delivery Was great. I told them my situation and what I was looking for and presto, I had one problem solved. The machines do exactly what I wanted them to do. I didn't need all the bells and whistles since I knew I probably wouldn't use them. I put soiled clothes in and at the end get clean clothes out. Just like I want. I am very happy and then moved on to my next problem as I was establishing my "Man Cave". August 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than GE Profile! I went from a GE Profile dryer to this basic Whirlpool model...was not expecting much -- and to my surprise, this dryer has turned out to be nothing less than extraordinary. I never need to set a timer...just set it on the energy setting, and the dryer turns off automatically when clothing is dry. With my Profile, I would set the timer for 60 minutes, when the Whirlpool takes half that time. Also, while I do not have the de-wrinkle feature, it is not necessary because the clothing is always wrinkle free for the most part. If I need to take wrinkles out of something at a later time, I just spray the garment with water and put it in the dryer on low for a few minutes -- works perfectly. This model is a little louder than my Profile, but I don't mind it at all because the efficiency and cost savings far outweigh a slightly louder appliance. I highly recommend this dryer to anyone who wants an excellent dryer but who doesn't want to pay a fortune. I am pleased beyond words. November 11, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by I am pleased with this product, as it does the job and was reasonably priced. My budget required staying under $400 and this machine was, but still has good quality. It does the job, though it takes about 2 hours to dry the large size loads that I generally do. Although I appreciate the wrinkle prevention option, it is a bit annoying that it keeps starting itself up again and again for a bit of time after the dryer cycle ends. And the knob to turn on the end of cycle buzz (which is pretty loud) is so sensitive, though I try to keep the sound on off, it seems to some how get pushed back on a bit easily when unintended. Otherwise, it dries the clothes, most times to perfection, and likely the time it did not, I may have not had it on my usual setting. I do wish it had a specific cycle for drying delicates. Other than the temp, I do not see a special setting. But I admit I have not looked at the manual. It was that easy to operate! One day, perhaps I will read the manual and discover what I have missed. But overall, a good product for a fair price. January 13, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good product for the price! My wife and I had come back from a trip and had a lot of laundry to do. The washer and dryer we had were 20+ years old. On the first load the washer broke! With a weeks worth of laundry to do we had to buy a new washer. The set we had was a Whirlpool and I have always used Whirlpool. so I figured a new set would last a while. My wife is a teacher and I own my own business so money was tight and we needed to find something that was affordable and effective. We decided on this dryer because it went with the set and it had everything we needed! This dryer has lots of options for the price and set up was easy. We did have to change the door to the opposite side and it took about 20 minutes to do, but was pretty easy. I do most of the laundry and the options allow for different drying times and temps, not to mention the energy saving option. Can be a little noisy at times, but I'm not sitting in the same room as the dryer to do work so I just shut the laundry door and work in my office. October 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I'm glad that I bought it I bought the dryer when the one I bought used 14 years ago gave out. The dryer was on sale and there were many other reviews online for this washer. Only a few out of the 1000+ reviews were negative. The features are simplified so that the guests from out of town can use it without having to read through a whole manual to figure out how to operate it. I was suprised by the size of the interior of the washer; definitely bigger than my last one. The noise level is louder than what I expected but since it's in my basement, it's not a concern. I like the energy saving setting where the dryer will turn off after sensing that the clothes are dry. I would recommend this product. April 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleasantly surprised with Whirlpool I never had a Whirlpool product before...usually other brand names and was very, very impressed with the features I saw in the Home Depot Store. So much so, that I ordered my dryer online and within 4 days, my dryer was up and running!! I am very impressed with the overall design, and features and the quiet of it...that is the lack of dryer noise I had been accustomed to with my old dryer. I was also happy with the time of delivery. I will consider Whirlpool products in the future when I am in the market for future home products. My side by side fridge is 20 years old and I know that sooner than later I will need to replace it. I will definitely consider Whirlpool products. The prices are comparable to other brands. April 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This Electric Dryer has great features , is up-to-date in design and functioning. I am totally enjoying my new Whirlpool Electric Dryer! I couldn't believe how large the tub is. It really holds a large amount of clothing with no drying issues. I'm pleased too, that I feel my new dryer is taking less time to dry than my old dryer did. Do like how efficient it is. Due to the size of the drum, clothing has room to tumble and doesn't wrinkle as much. I highly recomment this model to anyone who is looking to replace their dryer. April 16, 2014
