Rated 5 out of 5 by from A couple of design improvements needed This is a great dryer in all the important ways. However two improvements could be made to make it a perfect dryer. One, the top is slanted, so anything you set down there will slide off A flat top would be much better. During my first use, I had placed my tub of Oxy-clean powder on the dryer, and when the cycle was complete, I came back to find the tub had slid off and was on the floor, upside down with the contents spilled out. Also, the door takes a strong push to close---an easier close would be better. After removing the dry clothes, one must be certain to push the door firmly closed, or else the interior light will stay on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, completely user friendly Moved into a home with an existing 15+ year old electric dryer. We forgot what the stone age was like... one temperature, on or off. Part of the home improvement process included bringing natural gas to the house. Once the gas line was installed and approved, we've begun upgrading... after a tankless water heater, the dryer was next on the list. We wanted a unit similar to what in the old house... several temperature settings, delicate cycles, etc. We bought up to the Cabrio model and are completely satisfied... hard to say this, but the dryer exceeds our expectations daily. It's quiet, it's easy to operate, and the clothes dry perfectly every time, wrinkle free.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wonder if you ever do focus groups? We just got a new washer and this matching dryer. They are okay...nothing special. I like my old one better but it broke--it was also a Whirlpool My major complaint is that I did not realize in the store how slanted the tops of these machines are. Already washed clothes piled on top of the washer and dryer slide right off if the dryer is going. don't you know that almost everyone piles a just completed load on the dryer while waiting for the next load? Also, most everyone I know uses their washer and dryer as an extra surface like during holidays or parties. I always covered mine with a beach towel and used it for an extra surface to use at these times. The tops need to be FLAT not slanted toward the front. You must think that is some kind of cool design is NOT! I want FLAT tops back on your machines! They are a pain the way they are shaped now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value It was my first brand new washer and dryer. It was a goose hunt finding a great product with great price. I didn't have enough money, but I want a washer and dryer set that will do the job and affordable. It has been 3 months and I am always happy with the performance due to the following reason: 1. the clothes look and smell clean. 2. Functions are easy to understand and use. 3. Helps me save money for water, gas and power due to the "eco" mode 4. Clothes smell fresh longer, no weird "icky" smell after washing. 5. Dryer is very good in term sod drying clothes, and avoiding wrinkles. 6. AWESOME WASHER AND DRYER

Rated 5 out of 5 by from To me Whirlpool is the best. Always had Whirlpool washer and dryer since 1967. Whirpool gas dryers and very efficient to use than electric, and my clothes dry in half the time than electric. Had my first Whirlpool dryer for 17 years, and went through 3 Whirlpool washers in44 years. These gas dryers never seems to wear out. They just keep going and going. Will always buy Whirpool washer and dryers and won't even consider any other brand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing This dryer replaced our older Whirlpool dryer and has been a bit of a disappointment. Issues: --> The biggest problem is that the clothes simply don't dry. We routinely have to add more time and re-start the machine. Is that what makes it "eco"? I'd rather use 10% more energy and not have to make all those extra trips up and down the basement stairs! --> The door is too hard to latch. You really have to push on it to get it closed. The latch mechanism doesn't seem well-made. The control panel buttons have a rather difficult action too. --> The end-of-cycle sound is too quiet. A simple buzzer would be better than the little tune it plays. What would really help is a bigger range of adjustable volume.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This dryer is OK. My expectations were very high. I replaced my old Whirlpool gas dryer of 25+ years and, frankly, I don't see much difference. Some things, like my husband's polo shirts come out with fewer wrinkles, but everything else is about the same. I liked my old dryer and was told by many people not to expect the new one to last as long as the old one. Perhaps I should have just had the old one fixed! The new one is larger and I like the light inside, but since it is in my basement, I don't really hear the reminder signals. The anti-wrinkle feature doesn't prevent wrinkles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thumbs Up! I have owned my Cabrio High Efficiency Gas Dryer for four months and would recommend it highly. There are many drying cycles and options from which to choose. The large drum cuts down on wrinkling, so I'm ironing less. (The down side is that if the drum needs to be cleaned, such as after drying new blue jeans, I have a hard time reaching all the way to the back.) I am especially pleased that the lint trap is now located inside the door, not on top of the machine (as in my old Whirlpool dryer). The reason I've rated the performance as "Good" and not "Excellent" is that, on rare occasions, the dryer fails to sense how much time is needed to complete the drying cycle. The great majority of the time, it is accurate. My overall rating: thumbs up!
