7.4 cu. ft. Duet® Steam Electric Dryer with Tap Touch Controls is rated 4.8169 out of 5 by 71.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer. I have not had this dryer long enough to verify the dependability. But my past experience with Whirlpool appliances has proven positive, so I am hoping the same holds true for my new Whirlpool dryer. I am happy with the ability to dry fairly large loads in less than 45 minutes. I am very pleased with the fact that Whirlpool now has stainless steel tubs in their dryers. In the past I purchased another brand, because the stainless tub was a priority, and Whirlpool had porcelain. This model is very attractive and has all the features a person could want in a dryer. Very quiet. I hope to be still using this dryer 15 years from now. Definitely pleased and hope to be that way for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! After having another brand of washing machine for 12 years that sounded more like a combine than a washing machine, it is a refreshing change to have the quiet, fast, large capacity Duet Washer. I love the electronic controls and the auto dispenser for detergent. I use the 30 minute Quick Wash cycle almost all the time and the Duet dryer dries my loads in 30 minutes or less. The Steam feature on the dryer (which joyfully did not require any additional plumbing for the steam feature) is a lifesaver - I haven't used my iron since I purchased my set! Highly, highly recommend the Whirlpool Duet Washer and Dryer set!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fewer wrinkles! It took me a while to get used to this high tech dryer. I have only had the basic basic dryers all my life. But I really love this one. It seemed complicated at first, because I didn't read the instructions first. Now, I wouldn't trade it for any other dryer. I love the LOW and EXTRA LOW settings for delicate fabrics. Needed even more than on the washer is a much louder cycle signal. My washer and dryer are in the basement, and I've missed the sound of the signal a few times, which caused clothes to be wrinkled. It's an easy fix, so I hope the volume is increased significantly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer - goodbye dryer sheets! I'm loving this dryer. We've had it for nearly a year (purchased with matching washer - have them stacked). I'm very pleased with the static reduction feature. I've never been a big fan of dryer sheets, but even less so of static electricity. The "reduce static" setting really works. We've also had wonderful success with the steam refresh. Not long ago, we tried it with a suit of my husband's that had been packed (folded) for a long time. The steam setting made it look freshly pressed. I've not had the problem of balling sheets, except when I'm not careful about how I load the dryer. With any larger items like sheets, it's best to separate them carefully before putting them in the dryer. We've had no service issues at all with the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 MONTHS AND VERY SATISFIED WITH OUR PURCHASE! I purchased the "top of the line" dryer and received a "top of the line" product! What my family loves most is the dryer will completely dry a large load of clothes prior to the completion of a large load of laundry. If you forget or do not have time to pull your clothes when the cycle is complete the dryer will continue to tumble to minimize wrinkles. As advertised the dryer is very quite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super nice dryer! I was sceptical about buying another gas dryer because my old one (which was probably 30 years old) was noisy and not very efficient...it took much longer than the washing machine to get the clothes dry. This dryer is amazing, virtually silent, I actually need to go all the way downstairs to see if it is still running or not and the drum is so big I could probably fit inside! The sensor dry feature dries clothes perfectly, but it does not work well with heavy loads like comforters...but there is a specific setting for that stuff. Typically a load of clothes only takes 30 minutes to dry. The cycle end tone is very sophisticated and loud enough for me to hear from upstairs. The steam refresh setting is great for pillows and to tidy up my uniform! I love the features of this set and am so happy with my purchase. I would absolutely recommend this dryer to anyone who is in the market for a new dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love to do laundry now! I treated my family to this Whirlpool 7.4 cu.ft. Duet Steam Electric Dryer (and washer) with tap touch controls and could not be happier with it! I love how I can use the steam refresh to eliminate wrinkles or simply freshen something up! I love the sanitize option as well. I love the extra low setting for dedicates. I have a king sized down comforter that I wash once a month and this dryer actually dries it. Of course you must rearrange the comforter to get the best drying results for it is quite bulky. I now do all of the laundry whereas before, everyone did their own. Clothes come out beautifully!!! This dryer is very quiet and I love how you can control the sound level. The "done" sound indicator is even delightful !!! And finally, it is gorgeous!!! A real beauty! It makes me want to put a chandelier in my laundry room!!! OH! I am tall, 5'9" and there is zero bending for me. The laundry easily transfers from the washer to the dryer with the pedestals.
