      It dries but has shortcomings...(why no light???)

      Posted

      Yes it dries well however it has a few annoyances that people should be aware of. First, it has no light inside which is insane by today's standards... I just expect a light as the last 2 dryers i've owned had a light. I admit I did not verify this however at this price point I expected it. Second, no quick "dewrinkle" setting. It has a steam refresh, but you have to let it run the cycle because it will get the items moist. If you want to put something in for like 5 min you will have to use one of the other settings I suppose. And finally the "Check Vent" light is always on... We paid for the better rigid vent as suggested and had the ducts cleaned and the light still comes on... I have visually inspected the duct and it has no restrictions. This leads me to believe it is overly sensitive or it has a technical problem. I regret this purchase and wish I went with the Samsung instead...

      We bought this to replace a Whirlpool dryer I purchased in 1996 and that finally failed. Our local store had it in stock and delivery available in a couple of days (important when you have two teenagers in the house!). Delivery was on time (early , but they called) and was really well done. You need to buy ALL of the accessories - vent pipe and connectors, new electrical cord and water hose for steam drying - Best Buy installers will NOT re-use anything from the old system. I highly recommend this dryer - we've had great luck with Whirlpool over many years.

      Takes Some Learning

      Every appliance has it's learning curve, this one just seems steeper than any other dryer I've every used. I've only had the dryer a few days, so I'll break out the book and find out how to use it. It never occurred to me with any other dryer that I needed a book. There are presets which use the dial. Some presets let you change some options (temp, speed, etc.) and others do not. This is where the book comes in. Generally, it seems like they tried to save money on the controls. The general feel is flimsy. I expect the unit will last 5 years. Ten years seems unlikely.

      Have had my W/D set for about two months now and it is perfect. The volume of laundry it can handle is excellent, was concerned a HE W/D would only handle smaller loads but these babies can easily handle a load of 15 towels plus a dozen hand towels and wash cloths. They are quiet compared other washers and driers for the majority of their cycle. The washer does make a noise like a tiny jet engine when it is finishing a cycle (it is spinning unbelievably fast to wring out every bit of water it can!) which is understandable and only lasts a couple minuets or so. The dryer is 100% dead quiet though, I never hear that running. TL;DR Excellent product, quiet for a washer dryer, would buy again.

      Great Dryer at Best Buy

      We are enjoying our new Dryer purchased at Best Buy. It has a sensor so it always gets our clothes completely dry. The sensor works great it determines the size of the load and what it will take to dry the items. For example the other day I decided to test it out. I noticed one sock that did not get dry so I put the one sock in the dryer and five minutes later the sock was dry and the machine had turned itself off. So we were very pleased with how it works. It automatically determines how long it will take no matter how large or small the load is then turns off.

      Can't complain. Gets the job done. If I had to compare it to my last set of Whirlpool Duets, I will say those were made much more durable and less noisier. This machine is much louder. Yes, it has more features, but I feel like it's really nothing worth bragging about. Also, the buttons are touch sensitive. If you happen to brush up against the machine during a wash cycle, the machine will turn off. Overall, it's okay.

      I really love my new dryer. It drys so much quicker than my old one and I swear the clothes come out softer. My new dryer saves me a lot of time and I can now get the laundry done in an afternoon. Which means, we are also saving on electricity. I haven't had the need to use the steam feature on it yet, but am looking forward to trying it. After much thought about whether or not I should spend the money to get this particular dryer, I am glad that I did.

      I purchased this over the 4th of July on sale because I just moved into a new home and the washer/dryer needed replacing. I purchased the set and decided on whirlpool based on recommendations from several appliance specialists. The drum is large and can accommodate multiple towels or queen sized bedding easily. The cycles adjust based on the dampness of the laundrg and how many items are inside. It's quite, efficient and cycles are adjustable. I really love having a steam cycle to refresh clothes that are a little wrinkled.
