    Great dryer at an affordable price

    Purchased this dryer from the open box, scratch and dent section from my local store. Connecting the dryer plug was easy. The wires are appropriately colored and matched up with the plug. The touch buttons are easy to use with plenty of settings on the dryer itself. Plenty of settings give you different drying options depending on what your throwing in it. Lint trap does a good job capturing the lint and although a bit different, it’s not hard to use. The drum is huge and I have no problem fitting blankets and comforters. It has a light inside, so if your like my family, you can easily get dressed straight from the dryer. My only gripe is the door only opens so far before it reaches a stop. Since it opens towards my washer, I have to work around it to get clothes in the washer. If it would open fully, I could push it against the washer instead of throwing clothes in it from overt the top. Since I can’t give it a 4.7 due to the door, I’ll round it up to a 5. It works great, quiet, plenty of features, and great aesthetics makes it a great buy.

    Does the Job

    I bought the washer and dryer and so far dryer works okay. Nothing is made like it used to be, so we just have to make sure to buy warranties on appliances. These new appliances are high tech, so very sensitive to lint, load size, and settings. I've noticed sometimes the towels and bedding are not fully dry, so you have to play around with settings until you get it how you need. It comes with time and slowly getting used to how to use it. Overall no concerns, just glad it works and happy with the pair.

    This dryer is large enough to fit both a queen-size comforter and blanket at the same time and dries just fine. I love the many dryer settings that I can choose from. But what I love best is the wrinkle Shield setting. If I can't get to hanging up the laundry right away when I need to it periodically continues to Tumble with just air no heat and prevents my clothing from wrinkling!!!

    First unit was DOA

    I have always had Whirlpool Cabrio units and so picking this one as a replacement for my 10 + year old dryer was a no brainer. I was very disappointed when the unit arrived and we went through the entire installation only to find the unit was dead on arrival and would not power up. I had to wait two weeks for a replacement which is working fine so far, but I was really surprised I had this problem.

    We had been looking for a new dryer for a while and this was the match to the washer we had to replace but a size bigger. I would recommend always buying the size bigger dryer because it doesn't matter how big of a load we wash it dries in one cycle and the most unexpected but pleasant surprise is how quiet the dryer really is. I would buy this one again in a heartbeat.

    No bedding is too large for this dryer.

    It is a great dryer. Very intuitive. Lint trap is very nice and easy to clean out. Be sure to measure your space due to an extension on the back of dryer cabinet to accommodate the very large tub. When I placed it next to my large-capacity washer I could not believe how big the dryer actually was.

    We bought the matching washer over a year ago because we found a great deal on it but the place we bought it from did not have the dryer. Out of all the appliances my family have purchased we have always had the best experience with Whirlpool. The professional who delivered it from Best Buy also did an amazing job getting it installed.

    This is a good solid product. Just enough bells and whistles without being over complicated. Dries multiple sheets and a comforter the first time around. Wrinkle guard is so-so. Looks nice and easy to fill and empty. Parts like the lint trap are openable and easy to empty. Overall amazing for the price

    unfortunately this unit would not fit through the doorways. Wish they would have told me to measure the doorways before they came.very disappointed as they look like really nice machines and I was excited about them.

    We purchased this so that we could keep up drying clothes with our new washer. I can’t believe how big this dryer is and how easy it is to use! The lint trap is very nice and functional as well!

    with kids a big dryer that works fast is important. this one is quite and the lint collector is inside so that takes some getting used to, also it's quite that is great but now I have to physically walk over by it and look to see how much longer i used to just be able to hear the old one

    This Whirlpool Cabrio dryer is really nice. We've had it for about 1 month or so and love it! It's so quiet and the drum size fits the largest of comforters. We also brought the match washer as well. I highly recommend anyone looking for a new dryer to consider this one.

    Best buy truly managed to ruin the order and I had to go through so much work to correct errors in regards to their system. No one in their various department communicated and I was treated rudely and incredibly ineptly. Nonetheless the equipment itself is wonderful.

    Bought this recently when our old dryer stopped working. Chose this after some research, based on reviews. Best Buy had the best price and earliest availability. Really like the large capacity and much quieter than the old one (also a whirlpool).

    Love i can customize the dry cycle via the many settings from which to choose. Still playing with the settings and found a few go-to combinations. Take the time to read the manual, and then figure out what works for you. QUIET machine, which was a requirement.

    Bought for my daughter. This is a 8.8 cu. ft. Works great. At my house I have the Maytag Commercial 8.8. The dryers are the same, except control panel. Worth the money.

    I like the dryer. The drum is huge so I can have very large loads. It's cool that it senses if the clothes are dry. Stops early or adds time as needed. The lint trap is great, I feel like it doesn't allow lint to sneak into the dryer tube

    Not a bad Dryer my issue is takes a lot longer to dry clothes compared to my old one and it sticks out further away from the wall. Overall it was a good dryer, great for larger load and some comforter.
