Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 249 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use!!! This dryer is great!! I love the fact that it is just plan simply to use. My two children have no problem in using this dryer. The front pull down door even makes it better. Highly recommend to anyone. I like it better than my old front loaders. You NEVER use all the bells and whistles buttons on the new machines so why pay for them.. You still have the options that we all use on a everyday situation and it works great! April 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good traditional dryer I purchased this dryer to match the older style washer that I currently have. I purchased the old washer and dryer as a set about 9 years ago. This dryer performs well, has all the features I need, and was reasonably priced. April 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome product In the past, every time my wife needed to do laundry she dreaded it and would give the job to our daughter's. With our new dryer that is no longer the case. I know to head straight to the laundry room if I come home and say "hi honey" and she doesn't respond. All of a sudden she loves to do laundry and that room has replaced the kitchen as her favorite room. I can't seem to pull her out of there! March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by has the features I need, Simple Works great, love that I can turn the "done" sound off if I want to. The only thing I would change is to be able to open the door to the dryer from the top instead of the side. It is a bit low to the ground and the angle is awkward. March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Machine is working perfectly We are very happy with our new gas dryer. It is very quiet and performs exactly the way we expected that it would every time. March 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love my new dryer Thank you for making a great dryer. Dries quickly and I love the large dryer door opening. March 27, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Excellent value and good track record with my other Whirlpool products I typically buy Whirlpool fridge, range, washer, dryer, because some models have simple controls, easy to use, and reliable. I have had bad experiences with other brands. On this specific dryer, the drop down door allows for some place to put dried clothes while sorting them out, and a spot to place wet clothes temporarily while moving them from washer. There was a big problem buying a propane-rated one. It required hiring a gas mechanic to remove the outer shell, then removing the drum, then removing a gas unit to get access. The mechanic was astonished at the extreme disassembly.Then, selecting from a bunch of nozzles to replace the ones it was made with. This was crazy, Whirlpool should make propane units in the factory. It costs me a lot extra for the nozzle kit plus the mechanic - plus the hassle - much easier to pay more for a factory assembled unit. December 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great choice for an every day dryer First, our dryer is electric, not gas. I'm not sure why it is listed otherwise. Having said that, I must say that this new dryer is better than expected. Of course, it required installing a power cord. I think most new dryers do. That didn't take long, and it was fairly painless (I dropped a screw inside the dryer and had to work hard to get that out). There was no difference in size between my new Whirlpool and old dryers, so it fit right in place. The controls on the top are easy to read and understand. I like how easy they are to use (turn), and the buzzer telling you the clothes are ready is not too loud. The dryer does a very good job at drying the clothes. They come out looking better than my old dryer did. I like the direction the door opens (down). That was a problem with our old dryer. I also like the light inside the drum. That was an extra "feature" that I hadn't looked for. Bottom line: This is an excellent choice for a dryer for anyone that is not looking for something that will impress people by its looks. This dryer does its job without any fanfare, and that is greatly appreciated in our house. November 12, 2013
