Cabrio® High Efficiency Electric Dryer with AccuDry™ Drying System

Ratings

Guessing if the load is dry is a thing of the past. The 6th Sense™ Technology and AccuDry™ sensors in this Cabrio® 7.4 cu. ft. electric dryer figure out when your laundry is dry and stop the cycle for you. Together, they save 10 percent more energy than Whirlpool® washers with the already-energy-saving AutoDry™ system. Plus, 10 automatic cycles with four temperature settings ensure that you get results, while the Quiet Dry noise reduction system helps keep the peace. And when your drying cycle is done, the Wrinkle Shield™ option helps prevent wrinkles from setting into clean, dry fabrics. No guessing about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use,Excellent Performance,Quiet We bought this dryer about 7 month ago. My previous Dryer took about 2 cycles to completely dry a load of clothes. This dryer is amazing! It dries quietly and quickly. I can dry a large load of towels in about 30-40 minutes. This dryer is a great energy saver because it cuts off when it senses the clothes are dry. It also has the wrinkle free option so it will continue to toss your clothes after drying to help prevent wrinkles. It has a very easy to use panel that gives you several options for drying. This dryer has an interior light so it makes it easy to search for that 1 item you may be looking for. I would highly recommend this dryer if you are looking for fast drying, easy to use, and large capacity!

The energy savings are a plus because it lower your utility bills, and the quick efficient preformance not only cleans your laundry to perfections but also dose it in a short time...you simply can't beat that. Thanks Whirlpool for introducing an innovative machine with everything I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features that fit my situation fine. I am 85 years old and recently had to purchase a new washer and dryer--Whirlpool. You can imagine how surprised I was with the new innovative features of the pair. It is like the washer and dryer each have a brain of their own. I don't have to worry about sizing the amount of detergent to the load or the length of drying time to the load. It is so worry-free and such a blessing to have and use. Since purchasing the pair, I myself have had an open compount fracture of my ankle plus my husband has become completely disabled and it is so quick and easy to do the extra laundry involved with our disabilities. Thanks again for your modern technology exhibited in my new washer and dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Whirlpool washer and dryer! This set washes and drys very good! Everything gets very clean. I am very happy. I like that it is a high efficiency washer that uses less water, and a top loading machine at the same time. I used to have a HE front loading machine but did not like it because some of the clean clothes would fall to the floor when trying to get them out. I like a top loader better and I'm glad I could get one that is HE. The dryer is great! It doesn't take very long to dry a load of clothes. I like the fact that I can set the drying temperature. The only complaint I have is sometimes the washing machine makes loud noises. But, it's not a big deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cost-efficient & Always gets the job done! I purchased my washer and dryer set last march and I can honestly say I have no complaints! The washing machine effectively cleans everything from king size comforters, dog beds, oily dust rags, and more! I love that it is energy efficient as well as it only uses enough for water to cover the load, therefor cutting utility costs and keeping detergent more concentrated so it cleans loads better. The dryer automatically senses when clothes are dry and has a wrinkle shield that stays on for 1.5 hrs ad actually works to keep clothes from wrinkling! There are all the necessary features plus some that make the laundry scene as painless as possible :) Thanks Whirlpool!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product runs smoothly We have had it for about 4 months now and so far it has been very good at drying clothes of many different sizes. It is quiet as dryers go, and has real good capacity for one hat is more slim than it is tall. I had a whirlpool product before and we used it nearly everyday for 7 years with just minor problems that were likely more user neglect than the dryer function itself. I would recommend this product. The only slight drawback if I have to offer one is that the door is very tight, or it is compared to my prior dryer, but the wife doesn't complain and it doesn't bother me. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you Whirlpool Thank you Whirlpool for a wonderful product, my name is S. S. and I am a single male but I can proudly say that with the purchase of my Cabrio Washer along with my Cabrio Dryer I am a connoisseur of fine washing and drying. I love my Cabrio set it is wonderful with its durable performance along with the ease of use, I love adding my favorite fabric softener my favorite detergent selecting a washer cycle and my washer does the rest. Then I switch to the Dryer and I just put the clothes in (the Dryer is huge) select the cycle and the Dryer does the rest and the Dryer even gives me the option of wrinkle shield. The Cabrio set is a single man’s dream and I recommend the set to all my friends, thanks again. S. S
