Advanced Moisture Sensing System Three built-in sensors read incoming air temperature and outgoing air temperature while monitoring moisture levels inside the dryer. This helps the drying cycle end when everything is perfectly dry, saving time and energy and helping to prevent overdrying.

7.6 Cu. Ft. Capacity Featuring the industry's largest available capacity 2 , these dryer models offer a 7.6 cu. ft. capacity drum that adapts to both large and small loads.

EcoBoost Option with Eco Monitor Saves energy by using a portion of the dryer's dual heating elements and extending cycle time. You'll get great drying performance while saving in energy costs 3 . You can even track the energy use of this eco-friendly option with the Eco Monitor. It allows you to see how the cycles and options you choose will affect your overall energy savings in both the washer and the dryer.

Enhanced Touch-Up Steam Cycle Steam refreshes clothes in the dryer, helping to reduce wrinkles and odors. Clothes go from lying there to ready to wear without rewashing. An innovative Y-connector draws from your existing water line with no need to manually fill a reservoir.

Sanitize Cycle Provides excellent care for your clothes while eliminating 99.9% of three common household bacteria without washing. Bacteria tested were K. pneumonia, staphylococcus aureus and P. aureginosa.

Delicate Cycle Delicate fabrics and lingerie get gentle treatment with this cycle that dries them at the low temperature they need.

Casual Cycle This low-temperature cycle works great on permanent press garments and synthetic fabrics.

Heavy Dry Cycle This cycle sets the dryer to a high temperature level to thoroughly dry heavyweight items like towels and jeans.

Normal Cycle Dry everyday items like work clothes and sheets with the Normal cycle.

Quiet Dry Ultra Noise Reduction System Keep operational sounds inside the dryer and out of living areas with sound-absorbing materials around the dryer drum, thanks to the Quiet Dry noise reduction system.

Estimated Time Remaining LED Display Displays the estimated time remaining in the cycle, counting down until it is finished.

Timed Dry Allows you to run the dryer for a set period of time to help synchronize your washing and drying process.

Adjustable End-of-Cycle Signal Avoid leaving items in the dryer with the adjustable end-of-cycle signal. Thanks to a helpful tone, you'll know when your dry cycle is finished. You can even adjust the volume if you'd like, or completely turn it off.

Interior Drum Light Interior drum light allows you to see inside the dryer for easy loading and unloading.

Reversible Door The reversible door gives you the flexibility to set the dryer door to open to the right or to the left, depending on what best suits your laundry space.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

We purchased these about 2 months ago. I wanted to wait to review till we had them long enough to see how well they measured up. We had another brands frontloads and loved it. I was kind of hesitant about these because the design. Its spot on. Dryer is great and drys clothes faster then our other set. Hats off to whirlpool on this one.

Great Product

Linda 7/16/2016

I bought this to replace an old standby Maytag dryer with the lint filter on top of the dryer. It was in the house we recently bought. I hated that lint trap because every time you pull it out to clean it spreads all over everything. I got this dryer on a clearance closeout and am very pleased with it. It dries in half the time of my old dryer with no wrinkles. The tub is large enough for a full load from my HE washer and dries all at once instead of 2 cycles of the old dryer. I was skeptical of the steam option but decided to try it and it is wonderful! The only thing that caused the drop in rating is it is a bit noisy but tolerable. Since it is next to the kitchen it is noticible but the good options far outweigh the noise factor.

We purchased the Cabrio Washer a couple of years ago, and was more than excited to find the matching dryer when our old dryer went out. This dryer is far better than I would have expected, it is so quiet, and so quick, I am drying full loads in less that a third of the time! I am extremely pleased!

Good purchase, difficult installation

Chelsea 4/12/2016

We have had this dryer for maybe 2 months. When we received it, the installation was VERY difficult. First of all, the delivery guy told us that the electrical plug from our old dryer would not work on this dryer. We thought that was strange... but we went and bought a new one anyways. He was wrong, and we were out a little bit of money, when we could have just removed the plug from the old machine. THEN, when we attempted to install the electrical plug to the back of the machine, it was the strangest set up we had ever seen. Instead of prongs sticking out to hook the wires on, the wires slid up into the machine to be secured with a square shaped nut. Maybe we're a little old school, but that whole process seemed strange. The nut was supposed to stay secured within the machine, but unfortunately something was broken or broke during the process and it came out, making the wires impossible to tighten. (And you can't leave electrical wires loose!) Upon continued attempts to get the square nut back in it's place, we came to realize that the screw and nut that came together did not even thread together properly. So after much searching and assistance from a contractor, we found the appropriate nuts for replacement (no point in ordering new ones from Whirlpool because they were ridiculously expensive, who would guarantee what we wouldn't run into the same problem, and I wanted to dry some clothes!). The rest of the installation was easy -- exhaust and water line for steaming. And now I love the dryer! I love the steaming option, but it is a bit noisy and rattles. So I just shut the door to the laundry room.

Too Large For Our House

Yaki 3/20/2016

My parents were focused on getting a big dryer, not realising that the machine didn't fit through the inner basement door. We had to deconstruct the back of the dryer and then remove a portion of door. But we got it into our basement. The machine works perfectly and we have no complaints thus far.

Good but noisy!

rad4 2/22/2016

I bought this about 2 months ago and had it delivered. The guys set it up but I had to hook it up myself. The manual was very good and hookup was easy. My major complaint is that this darn thing is noisy because of vibration coming from something loose in the dryer. I have adjusted the feet but that doesn't seem to stop the noise. I can move it slightly one way or the other and push down on the top to sometimes get the noise to stop.

A dryer couldn't get better than this.

Cliff 12/1/2015

So, it's been a little over a month and I am ecstatic about my purchase. This dryer has every feature I could ask for. It has already begun making my life easier. I love the refresh feature. Now I can come home from the office, refresh my shirt and head back out to dinner. It knocks those wrinkles right out and freshens the shirt in less than the time it takes to iron another one. I also absolutely love going to the dryer and finding my clothes completely dry, but not over-dried. In the past I would always have to do a self-damp test. Reset the dryer and hope to catch it before it toasted my slacks. I can truly say this is the best appliance investment I've made in quite some time. I do not know how much money I may save by properly caring for my clothes this way, but I'm sure it's worth it.

deb 11/7/2015

We were actually in the market for a new washer after our front loader went on the blink. Purchasing a washer and dryer as a pair was less expensive and with the way our luck was going, we were afraid the front load dryer that we had would go next! So we bought the pair. This dryer has turned out to be wonderful! I love all the different drying options that it offers. It does an awesome job of catching all the loose lint- I have to clean it each load. I'm very pleased with our purchase.
