Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use There are several settings for this machine which makes it easy to pick which one you need for the clothes your drying. However sometimes it's easier to use the timed drying to make sure you get the dryness level you want. Also I was warned when the dryer was installed not to open the dryer door unless the machine was off. The installer stated that if I didn't do this there would be problems. Sometimes when I need to check on the clothes I'll place the machine on hold then off before I open it. I don't know what problems it could cause but I don't want to find out either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased as a companion to our new Cabrio HE We recently replaced our older Whirlpool washer and dryer with a new HE pair. My wife was attracted to this machine for the steam feature. As a dryer it has a large capacity and does a nice job. It is also easy to use. The steam feature was a little bit of a let down as it did not work as my wife had hoped it would. I basically keeps flipping the load after the dryer cycle has completed to keep wrinkles from settling in. My wife was thinking she could use the steam feature to take the wrinkles out of curtains before she hung them and without washing them first. All in all it has been a fine machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is highly efficient and has great features The dryer has performed flawlessly so far. The eco boost options are worth using to optimize energy consumption. The cycle features for the various categories of clothes are easy to use and seem to optimize the drying. The large capacity is great and more clothes can be dried per load resulting in increased energy savings. Our no iron clothes come out great. We recommend this dryer to anyone needing large capacity and willing to pay a little extra for the many features the dryer offers. We have not used the steam cycle yet, but it is one of the reasons we chose this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed When I bought this dryer I did not even research as I normally do. I spent my time researching washers and was set on just picking the matching dryer for whatever washer i picked. I did not think a new dryer would be all that different from my old one. Well, i was pleasantly surprised with this dryer. It is smart, efficient and quiet. I bought a large washer and this dryer handles the large loads from that washer. It senses the size of the load and adjusts the time so that the load comes out perfect. Not over-dried so that everything shrinks, and not under-drieed (unless you want it tell you when it is almost dry). I really love the steam feature. My shirts don't have to be ironed anymore. If the load finishes and you don't have time to get it or you are not home, the dryer will periodically turn on and apply steam to prevent the load from wrinkles. I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product was recommended by Consumer Reports and I love it. I have not used all the features, but overall, I have been satisfied. My only concern is the door. I wish the door was like my old dryer. My washer machine is on the opposite side of where the door opens and therefore I need to walk around the door to put the clothes in. If the door just opened from the bottom, it would be easier to put the clothes in from the washer machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy doing laundry We have only had the set 2 months but they are a dream to operate. Many cycles to choose from for all laundry needs. Quiet running machines. Signals when end of cycle if you choose. Beautiful to look at too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Innovations and ease of use serves us well. This purchase replaces a dryer purchased in 1969. We are amazed at the changes and innovations contained in our dryer.
