Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to work ok. Happy so far. I was living with 80's era Maytag top loader washer and front loader dryer for the last 20 years. The dryer never really worked well, and was wearing out my clothes because it ran so long due to not getting hot enough. A true energy waster. I shopped around a lot before deciding on the Whilrpool set. There are a lot of optional settings, which I almost never use. It's just set on Normal. I put in the clothes, empty the lint filter and press Start. Voila. It just works. No complaints. I hopt it lasts as long as the Maytags. Those were BUILT, if you know what I mean. Solid. These new units have thinner sheet metal and have electronics inside. More stuff to go wrong. My appliance repairman says the Whirlpools are pretty good, so I have my fingers crossed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More features... but easier to use! The extra features on this dryer were a bit intimidating at first- lots of lights and buttons. But it is actually more 'intuative' than the older Duet models, making it easier to use. This is our second purchase for the Duet Gas Dryer. Not because we wore out the first one, but because of a color change in our laundry room. My wife and I have four children still at home, and we use our Duet washer and dryer set every day. Our original washer and dryer set, which we purchased years ago (when they first came out) went to our oldest daughter, who has five children herself. Her husband works construction, and they have two children under 5, so our old Duet set is still performing well- every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product, Value and Service This unit replace a 12 year old Whirlpool that still worked but squealed a lot and well used. The new unit was delivered when promised, brand new in the box free and with no problems. The only problem was to have to change the direction of the door swing, which was not detailed in the users manual. Another Whirlpool instruction manual had to be located on the internet (free). The dryer works very well and my wife is pleased. We also have a Whirlpool front loading washer we purchased a few years back to replace the one we had for 10 years. Both appliances are used daily and are reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is great for newly weds! We have limited space in our apartment and this dryer does a great job of not only drying efficiently but also fitting in tight spaces. Love the presets, love the automatic drying. Very efficient for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Job If you are looking for the perfect dryer that gets the job done quickly, quietly, and without the expensive bells and whistles, then this is the dryer for you. We were looking for a smaller dryer due to laundry room space and may even stack it in the near future. Although its exterior is smaller than most dryers that we found, the interior can still accommodate the laundry needs of 2 adults and two college students since it cut down drying time by almost 50% in our household.My only concern is the interior latch and plastic dialing knob seem to be inferior to other products on the market, but I am sure that replacement costs will be minimal if needed. Sound level is low and it is easy to use. The only annoying feature is the end of cycle chime. I haven't gotten used to it yet and it has been a month.
