Whirlpool® Cabrio® Platinum 7.6 cu. ft. HE Dryer with Enhanced Touch Up Steam Cycle is rated 4.7537 out of 5 by 601.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very good Dryer! I really like the ease of use control panel and the great way the dryer dries my clothes. I like the reminder sound it plays when the cycle is finished. What I think needs improvement is the instruction on how to reverse the door. I spend more time than I wanted trying to get the hinges set correctly. I think more details on how to set them for a left-side hinge would help. I went to Lowes to see one with the left-side hinges and they did not have any. All of the models of dryers were right-side hinged. Other than that little challenge, I really love my new dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this dryer Excellent dryer, large capacity allows us to only have to dry 2 loads - one for whites & one for darks (very appreciated time saver with two young girls), very easy to use, love the many different cycle options, especially the steam cycle option, clothes come out softer than any other dryer I have used , very highly energy efficient saving on operating costs, very consistent dryness levels after each cycle (it senses the weight of the clothes & automatically adjusts the drying time to achieve very consistent drying levels), love the wrinkle free option that works very well, it is very easy to use. I highly recommend this dryer & the washer that goes with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good dryer... The sensor on this dryer works very well. You can select a cycle for the type of fabric, load, etc. It will initially state a time that is the default for the type of cycle you selected. But then the sensor kicks in and adjusts the time accordingly. Pretty good feature. Same as with the matching washing machine, if the items in the dryer are of the the same weight it works better. I like the way the door opens with a little bit of opening on the top, just so you can see better into the machine without totally bending down. My only complaint is the quality of the door. It sounds a little cheap when opening and closing it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from dries ok Dries well enough most of the time but not as good as my old dryer that was 30+ years old. If clothes are of a mixed type the buzzer goes off before they are all dry. Also when there are only a couple items they just ride on the over sized wings in the dryer and don't dry. The biggest problem and one I would like to have you take care of is that the filter screen is waffled and the lint scrapes off of parts of it when I pull it out of the dryer. Therefore about half of our lint is falling down into the bottom of the dryer. If I had a filter that was made properly that wouldn't happen. I vacuum the lint that I can reach but most is inaccessible. I think this will eventually cause a problem with the dryer so I would like the filter replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase we have ever made on an appliance I have always owned Maytag appliances and thought I had the best, but I was so wrong. Since I have purchased the Whirpool Cabrio Platinum 7.6 Dryer I realize I have been so wrong. This dryer is loaded with features and has made my life so much more simple and my clothes have never been so wonderful. There is hardly any lint in the filter even when I dry my towels. I have never been more pleased with an appliance than I have been with this dryer. Thank you Whirlpool for thinking about my needs and making them come to life to make my life more simplified plus the added bonus an doing a wonderful job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome machine! After the purchase my wife and I just stood by the washer and could not believe how quiet it was. We were amazed with the way this washer washed. It used so little water to do the job. The spin cycle was the best to watch. We had a blast watching the speed of the drum and how the direct drive worked. I know, this is not what you would think that two adults would stand at a washer and watch a clothes being washed, but I tell you it was awesome! Its been over a month and we still catch each other just standing by and looking though the glass top. Love this washer. Oh yeah the dryer is awesome too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent drying-fast,reliable.Very easy to operate.(user friendly) I love my new dryer.It takes on average 40-45 minutes to dry a large load in comparison to 2 hours from my older dryer.(this has advanced moisture sensing) I will never buy any other brand than Whirlpool.The dial on this Whirlpool is made of the highest quality.This dryer has all the bells and whistles and is very easy to use.I bought a Whirlpool Gold dishwasher a few months ago and it is great.(one of the reasons why I decided to go with the Wirlpool brand) It is also American made-I LOVE WHIRLPOOL products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Dryer I Have EVER Owned! My dryer stopped working in the midst of one of the busiest times for my family. I did not have time to shop in the store and went online to search for a new dryer. I read the reviews and found out that my brother had recently purchased this same model in the Platinum finish and they were very happy with it. Needless to say, I bought it right then and I knew I would love it. I have been using it for several months and with a family of 7, it gets plenty of use. It's very quiet, energy efficient and dries my clothes perfectly! You will not be disappointed in this dryer.
