Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 56 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by By far the best dryer on the market This is my second Whirlpool dryer. I had to leave the first dryer in a house I sold. It worked perfectly and looked brand new after seven years of daily use. The new Duet Dryer is perfect. My Husband calls it a spaceship! I adore the design and with the heavy use I put it through, it has been perfect. We love how quiet it is because our laundry room is connected to the kitchen which is open to our main living space. It is a high quality product and I will never purchase another brand of washer or dryer. I did read the instruction book because it is technologically advanced and I wanted to use it right. Easy instructions. Highly recommend. April 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features and takes guess work out of doing laundry Like it. Like the drawer under the unit. Simple to use and does a good job. April 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome dryer Very innovative features and extremely quite. Style and color are awesome. We remodeled and painted based on the unit. April 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The product performance exceeds my expectations. I cannot believe that the technology in this dryer exists. Not only does the dryer run quietly and efficiently, but the various features are easy to use. Clothes dry quickly. The energy saved is amazing. The product is not just a dryer, it is the dryer of all dryers. We feel pampered and very lucky to have purchased the product. April 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Reasonably Priced, Performs & Looks Good The Whirlpool washer/dryer can at a competitive price, looks sharp & performs well. The front panel displays allow easy confirmation of settings (unlike some brands). They are easy to use, pleasant to the ear (no jarring beeps!) and do the job well. Assuming they last (we've only had them a couple months), we'll be very satisfied. April 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome!! Works great!! Very quiet. Lots of features and setting to choose from. Easy to use. Worth the money! April 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features, great looks I purchased this to replace a five year old front load washer that wasn't worth fixing. This one is loaded with convenient features, it will even dry clothes (although I haven't tried that yet). I have been very happy with the results so far and I also appreciate the sleek design and esthetic quality of my set (I purchased the platinum finish). It looks great in my laundry room. April 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it I had a whirlpool duet dryer before so when we moved and had to buy a new one, there was no second guessing. I just wish the alarm when it is done was a little louder being that this is now down in the basement. March 31, 2014
