    I purchased this dryer on memorial day. To make a long story short, the dryer was delivered either defective or with big dents on the sides 3 times!! we dealt with this for about 3 weeks until we decided to give up and just return the washer and dryer and buy a different brand. Best buy customer service was not bad but it wasn't great either, I was promised a gift card for my inconvenience which I never received.

    Bought the new Whirlpool front loading washer and dryer to replace our existing 10 year old top loading Whirlpool washer and dryer that was still in working condition. This beautiful upgrade came at the best time, my wife and I have been wanting this beautiful upgrade for a few years now and saw it on Black Friday and just couldn't resistany longer. Best buy ever this year.

    My washer was still working but was outdated-I bought to "get with the times" with the high efficiency and heard these cleaned well. During my research, these got high reviews. Stay away from top loaders=they don't clean well was the concensus. This machine is awesome and does king size comforters with ease. I am a little worried about the control board but so far so good!

    Wasn't ready to replace 7 year old electric dryer but it became necessary due to a move and only having a gas hook up. It ultimately worked out for me as this dryer does a better job of getting the clothes dry. Also like the steam feature to freshen up clothes and reduce wrinkles.

    My wife says it doesn't dry all the time and I've noticed it a couple times as well. The check vent light seems to pop on randomly albeit not obstructed. May have to rely on geek squad warranty I ponied up on. I will say the steam function has worked great but if it doesn't always dry the clothes what's the point.

    Good solid drier

    This drier is a good solid choice. The drum is large enough to accommodate large loads from the washer, and the clothes seem to dry quickly. Reversing the door was a bit of a pain as the instruction/illustration did not exactly match what I was seeing...

    I have always had good luck with whirlpool laundry appliances. This whirlpool dryer quiet. Runs smoothly. Electronic buttons are sensitive . Large drum. No dryer rack give. , it is now an accessory you have to buy.

    This Whirlpool dryer works well. Haven't yet used all of its features (steam refresh), though. It allows you to change the default settings if you prefer drier clothes or if they are coming out too dry -- a good feature. Getting the pedestal is a good idea...it stores a lot.
