Whirlpool® Duet® Steam 7.3 cu. ft. Front Load Electric Dryer with Wrinkle Shield™ Plus option is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a personal laundry assistant! I can't express how happy I am with this dryer! I had an old one that "worked fine" for ten years, and then got the Duet set for a well-deserved indulgence after completing a work project that allowed some extra cash for some home improvements. I had NO idea how much difference there would be, I just wanted something that looked good ... and with the pedestals so I didn't have to bend down to load and unload. Fantastic; I just set the very user-friendly dials and the machine does the rest! I was a little scared of it at first, but it's not complicated and the clothes dry in a flash, very good and very unusual in our high-humidity environment. Love, love, love this machine and its paired washer. SOOOOO worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional quality The Duet washer and dryer with steam was the BEST purchase we have ever made for our laundry. My wife had never thought she would like a front end loader washer. She heard many reports of problems with front end washers, since our purchase she has changed her opinion and is very satisfied with the freshness and cleanliness of our clothes. The extra options are extraordinary. Would not hesitate to recommend these machines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from State of the Art! Like many, we were forced to buy another set because ours finally went the way of the dodo. Upon researching for several weeks, we finally came across this set at a local appliance store. I always wanted a front loader and the steam feature is awesome! I like the timer you can put on there if you start a load and leave home for the day. The steam fresh feature helps de-wrinkle your clothes if you forget. Overall, very very quiet!! I love this machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this dryer! This is an excellent dryer, whether you're drying a full load of jeans or steam refreshing a blouse. It works quickly & efficiently. It's easy enough for my 11 year old to operate. On occasion, it will alert that the cycle is complete & a few items will still be damp. However, this is the exception, not the rule. It is a wonderful product that I have already recommended to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the dryer!! This is the best dryer I've ever owned! It's really fast and can do a lot of laundry in a short amount of time. Though, one complaint I have is if it "senses" the laundry is done, it will shut itself off, even if some is still damp, so that's annoying. But I just take out the dry stuff and leave in the damp stuff and it works just fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes the close clean and smell great I bought whirlpool Washing machine and Dryer and have been very happy with their performance. They really do a great job getting the close clean. (I know they wash close) The thing is... We had heavy duty washer and dryer before but there was always a little idk something left over. We used fabric softeners to get that fresh laundry experience. I will say that the steam cycle on the dryer is amazing. I put my comforter in and it came out the freshest I have ever experienced with a home washer and dryer. I am very happy with them both. That being said there are a couple of cons. I leave the door open on the washer to prevent that musty smell and I switched on a refresh cycle on the washer without knowing it. I kind of stumped me but I chalk that up to user error haha. I noticed that the drain is a rubber gasket around the door. Don't leave anything in your pocket because it can rip that hole for the gasket. I am happy with these machines so I would recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great capacity I bought this several months ago. I've been able to dry load after load quickly and easily. The casual setting that keeps clothes unwrinkled is a great feature. My daughter and family visited for a several months and we were able to keep up with all the laundry that two active grandsons produced, no problem!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Lovely washer and dryer!! I bought this about two months ago and absolutely love it, I could never go back to a regular washing macine. My husband was even able to wash his ties with the steam clean option and they came out like he had took them to the dry cleaners. Which is great because it helps us cut back on dry cleaning cost.
