Cabrio® High Efficiency Electric Dryer with AccuDry™ Drying System


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 4.5 out of 5 by 130 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by All Whirlpool appliances that I have purchased have great features. I"ve always used Whirlpool brand appliances because of the quality and affordable prices. Keep up the good work !!!! April 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Efficient, effective and easy to use this dryer does what it is supposed to do--it dries clothes and provides all the necessary options. One slight drawback is the door requires a pretty hard tug to open--difficult for some older and/or more frail users. I suggest you create a panel of average users, including older women and perhaps handicapped individuals to physically review the appliances prior to introduction into the marketplace. April 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by It drys clothes The automatic dry feature works pretty well. The only negative is it seems to build up lint a little faster than our last dryer, but it's not bad. April 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Amazing for the price We caught this dryer on sale with the washer at a great price but were nervous that it might not perform as well as advertised. We were blown away. It dries efficiently and isn't loud enough to disturb hubby's TV watching even with our livingroom's proximity to the hookups in the kitchen. Cleaning the dryer's lint trap is a snap considering it's on the inside of the unit rather than the top (for those who are short like me). It's capacity is certainly sufficient. The only thing that might make it better is if the opening to get the clothes in and out was a little larger. March 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Effifiently Dry This new generation dryer was a surprise when it was installed. My old dryer sounded like a cement mixer. This dryer is so quiet, I forget it is running. I especially like the wrinkle cycle. Sometimes you forget to take the clothes out and they get wrinkled. Now if you forget, they are still smooth and not in need to ironing. This energy efficient dryer is a joy to have in our home. When the washer needs replacing, it will be a Whirlpool appliance. This dryer is in our second home in Scottsdale and we have a Whirlpool washer dryer pair in our other home. It pays to stay with a winner. March 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great New Washer It's been quite a few years since I got a new washer and recently purchased a new washer/dryer. Very pleased with both. Love the features of the washer. Much more sophisticated than my old one. Nice having the wide selection of washing cycles available. And I like that the machines are all American made. Means a lot to me. March 31, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Performance is fair. I do not like that after the dryer is finished drying & on wrinkle feature it shuts off & then comes back on briefly until you take the clothes out. This makes my clothes come out wrinkled so I have to iron them. My previous dryer went on a cool cycle & beeped every ?10 minutes until you took them out & then they were not wrinkled. I tried a lower temperature setting & they then were damp. I would not buy this dryer again for this reason. March 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Really like this dryer I really like this dryer. It quietly dries all my loads and has a good wrinkle free option. I would definitely recommend this dryer. April 1, 2014
