Now that's smart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang for the Buck. We bought the gas version of this dryer, it is exceptional. HUGE capacity, easy to use, dries very effectively in all settings, no quality issues, and very very quiet. I gave the features a 4 out of 5 because it doesn't have all the features of the more expensive dryers, BUT, for the money we spent on this product it has everything we need and it does what it is supposed to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dryer is exactly everything we wanted and was a great price. Over the years this is our third gas dryer. Our last dyer would never completely dry clothes. We had to run extra cycles wasting our time. This one is quiet, efficient and thorough. We don't have wet clothes waiting any more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is a really good dryer! This dryer has some very good features. I appreciate the wrinkle shield as I cannot always get to it right when clothes drying cycle finishes, so it keeps them wrinkle free! If I have one item that I would improve, it would be the handle for door opening. It seems to not be deep enough or at the wrong angle, as often my hand slips out rather than opening the door. I have also broken a finger nail when my hand slipped out! That is the worst! Does Whirlpool ever put the lint filter in the inside front of the dryer? I would like that feature better than on the top as pulling it out can be awkward. However, overall I like this dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great features as with all my whirlpol products, great price, performance , and overall quality. I recently had my double oven serviced (20 year old) he had the part on the truck and it was fixed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for. When I had to finally break down and purchase a new washer/dryer combo, I purchased the most affordable set, as I am a widow on Social Security. All I can say is I wish I would have had more money to work with, as I did have top of the line machines previously. I didn't realize what a huge difference there would be. I figured it's Whirlpool, so I didn't think twice about buying them. The washer is SO LOUD you can't help but listen to it, it sounds like a space shuttle taking off! And the dryer, well, I didn't realize about the sideways opening door, and the clothes come out wrinkled, no matter what setting I put it on. So all and all, I guess you get what you pay for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Liked my old set better Had my new dryer about a month. Really can't say that I'm thrilled with it. It is noisier than my old Kenmore model. In fact, I may be calling to see if it should be making as much noise as it does. I deliberately bought Whirlpool because I have had great luck with older models and I wanted American made. I wanted a simple machine without a lot of computer buttons. I prefer dials. There is a ton of space inside and it is drying well. I wish I could set the tumbling feature as it keeps turning back on (wrinkle guard) and that is wasted energy when I am not there to unload the clothes. My dryer is downstairs and I often get distracted and don't remember that a load is in progress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is far superior to my 22 year old Whirlpool Dryer. I am enjoying my new dryer. It has many features my old on did not. THe interior light is great, the range of drying temperatures and times is wonderful. There was really nothing wrong with my 22 year old dryer but the gas valve in it wore out and the cost of repair was almost as much as a new dryer so it made sense to purchase a new one and all my other appliances are WHirlpool except my gas stove which whirlpool did not offer at the time as far as I know. I would definitely recommend this product and the other Whirlpool products that I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dries clothes quickly and the drum is huge When my 1989 dryer stopped working I first looked into having it repaired and then looked to replace it with a basic dryer. I selected this model based on its price and an online description and waited for delivery. I was pleasantly surprised. It is very easy to use and when set to the "energy efficient" setting, the clothes are dry very quickly. And the drying drum is just huge. Usually it is only abut 1/3rd full when loaded from my older washer. It could obviously handle large items like sleeping bags or bed comforters.
