    I love my new dryer!

    I really like my new dryer. It's quiet, pretty, and efficient. One thing I did notice is after the cycle is over, sometimes, it will start back up for a few minutes...repeatedly. I'm not sure if it is normal or not. It also seems like if you open the door to the dryer before the time is up, it has some difficulty continuing the countdown. The time read 17 minutes for about 15 minutes after I closed the door to check on the clothes. This dryer is a major improvement from my previous dryer so I really love using it!

    I love everything about this dryer. The steam function is nice, bt make sure you get a second washer filler hose to connect it! The only complaint I have is the lint trap. Based on the design (It sort of curls over, bending the plastic) it will eventually break. But the functionality is top notch. My dry times have been cut more than half, and it's HUGE. The largest dryer I have ever seen in a home. Great paired with the washer.

    I bought this dryer along with the Cabrio washer about a month ago, it worked great for a few days. My wife called me and had me listen to the sound the dryer was making, it was pretty obvious it had slipped it's drive belt. BestBuy was quick to send out a new one and take the old one back. So we have been using the new one for a few weeks and love it. Fingers crossed that the first one was a fluke.

    Really love this large capacity dryer! What I used to dry in 2 loads now dry thoroughly in 1 load. Thoroughly dries bulky bedding items in one cycle. Took a little while to get used to a more complex dryer but it is well worth the learning curve. I do wish it had a cool down mode like my old dryer had but the much larger capacity and extra features more than make up for this. Also love the steam and static reduce options.

    I am so upset about the washer that I don't know what else to say about the dryer. The first attempt I made to use the machine the clothes did not dry thoroughly. I had to run it a couple times and use less clothes. I wanted the biggest machines so that my laundry for a family of 5 would be maximized but I'm over all just very disappointed with Best Buy. I had Samsung front load machines prior to this and never had any issues.

    This Whirlpool - Cabrio 8.8 Cu. Ft. 23-Cycle Steam Electric Dryer is a great product. I have been used it for about 3 weeks. Very happy with the dryer level the reasonable time and the soft "quiet" of the machine. Have not been used the steam function yet. My sister has the same model and she's really happy with steam function.

    Best dryer I've owned

    Fits king size comforter or two large sleeping bags, items I used to have to go to laundromat to dry. Very quiet while operating, settings for every fabric type. Drying times are much less than my previous dryers. Intermittent tumbling until clothes are removed. The end-cycle tone could be a little louder. Overall the best dryer I've ever owned.

    Overall good - but I have only had it for 6 months and have already had to have it repaired. It was under warranty and they were pretty quick about it. No problems since. It does take a while to complete a load of laundry. I am short (5'4") and sometimes have trouble getting items out of the bottom.
