Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 164 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by this product is very dependable very happy with this item, don't like the top been slanted November 14, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by value Not worth the extra price. Very ordinary in quality and function. Had I known this ahead of time I would have purchased another model for couple hundred less. November 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does the job well. It is hard to get too excited about dryers when they just do their job. This machine is just that....does its job as it is supposed to do. The only thing we are somewhat disappointed with is the size of the opening and door. We knew the size was smaller than the next model up the scale but chose to live with this opening size as we did not feel the larger door opening was worth another $200+ to buy the next model up the scale. We feel we made the right decision and the door opening is adequate. However, I just don't see why they can't design the opening on this model the way they do on the next best model? Probably because there are very few product feathers to differentiate these dryers and they need reasons to charge more for a nicer product. But, that is the only thing we would change on the machine. April 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good dryer, wierd shape. The only problem we have with the dryer is the sloped top. Makes it impossible to set anything on the top because it slides off immeditately or vibrates off when the dryer is running. November 6, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too much Automation/Too Many Features The dryer does a nice job, but there are two features which I don't like: 1) there is no way to cancel the dryer run if you decide you want to take out some clothes, 2) The dryness level button will revert to the last use and the user needs to remember to look at the dry level for each use. October 30, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not designed for drying of towels A beautiful machine that incorporates many useful features. However, it proves unsuitable for drying more than 1 towel at a time even when placed on the Heavy Duty cycle of 50 minutes. We really want this dryer to be the ultimate one but unfortunately after 6 months of use the disappointment persists. October 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So easy to operate even a husband can use it! I have only one regret...having purchased a Whirlpool Cabrio dryer now my wife wants a Whirlpool Cabrio washer. November 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this Dryer Very happy with this product. I actually like to do laundry now. I love the touch-up feature. My old dryer was supposed to "sense" the didn't. But this dryer does a great job. The only thing I would change is to make the top of the dryer flat instead of curved. October 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Dryer I really like how it senses that the clothes are dry. Wonderful. Saves energy. November 9, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Set! Nice set! It fit our laundry room perfect. Fits our needs, although a little noisy. November 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliable even drying! Love this dryer! Even reliable drying from delicates to jeans. November 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 19, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by I want my old dryer back! Modern technology makes you step two to three steps back. The dryer senses how much time it needs to dry the contents. When the cycle is over, the clothes are not dry and need to be put in for a second cycle. How is this energy efficient? October 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very happy with my purchase. This is the first time I have purchased a gas dryer and I love it. It is so much cheaper to operate and faster than the other electric dryers I have owned. I have recommended Whirlpool products to all my friends and family. October 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great products. I love the new washer especially, very efficient, gets my clothes clean with less soap, water and electricity. Very sleek design. I am very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend Whirlpool. October 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great replacement for our old dryer Really great product, plenty of options and programs, we love the fact it is HE. Looks nice, drys well and it is not noisy. Inside light is great feature. October 29, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by The dryer works the same way they all do. It's a new dryer but similar to the one I had. Nothing really new that I can see. November 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very simple to use. I think the moisture sensor that will automatically adjust the time is amazing. Very efficient! Great Dryer. October 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the preset temps! Only occasional would I prefer to change a level, but due the preset temps it doesn't alllow that! October 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I like this dryer! For the price this dryer has everything I need. It's easy to use. Nice looking as well. October 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by It leaves the compitition back at the rinse cycle! The others are all washed up! This product really cleans up! October 29, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fast drying time This dryer does a good job drying. It is moderately priced. October 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by WHP Dryer Dries fast and wrinkle free. Love the variety of settings. October 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by High quality My last Whirlpool dryer gave me over 30 years of service. October 29, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by I liked our old dryer better Sorry. I wish I could say something positive about our dryer, but it just doesn't work as well as the old dryer we had. Clothes never seem to dry on just one complete cycle. We constantly have to dry things on a second cycle - often a hotter cycle the second time around. In our old dryer we put things into a delicate cycle and they were dry after 35 minutes or so. This new dryer -same type of delicates -come out still very damp after the cycle is over. I have taken out my old wooden drying rack and placed wet clothes near the dehumidifier in the basement so I can be sure they'll be dry for work the next morning! More than once I have placed one set of sheets in the dryer on normal cycle and come back an hour later to find -usually the fitted sheet and/or pillow cases -still quite damp. October 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Overall Great Dryer All the settings are true to their use. A load of towels are dried as efficiently as delicates. The non-wrinkle option is nice if you can not retrieve the cloths when finished. Great with sports wear that you want fresh looking right out of the dryer. You will not be disappointed with this dryer. September 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great machine and easy to use. Great machine and easy to use. I especially like the drop-down door - good for presorting items when drying is done. I don't see any value to a side-swinging door - don't know why so many dryers are made this way. ECO button helps me understand how to set the machine to save energy. September 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! April 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good deal on a great dryer More flexibility on the location of the exhaust pipe would have been nice. Otherwise it is a great unit with all the features we need. January 7, 2013
