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.

Quad Baffles Get better, more balanced tumbling and increased effectiveness on small loads with the unique design of four shorter, staggered baffles. Now, larger items dry more evenly while smaller items keep tumbling without getting stuck riding the baffles.

Tap Touch Controls with Memory Start your next load quickly using the sleek control interface of the Tap Touch controls with Memory. This technology allows direct access to dryer functions and even remembers your last cycle and settings to save you time.

7.3 Cu. Ft. Capacity Dry bulky items like comforters and sleeping bags in this 7.3 cu. ft. capacity dryer that provides enough space to care for loads from the matching washer with ease.

ENERGY STAR® Qualified ENERGY STAR® qualified models exceed government standards to help conserve natural resources and save money on your utility bills.

EcoBoost™ Option Use less energy while still getting great drying performance 2 with the EcoBoost™ option that uses less heat and extended cycle times for greater energy efficiency.

Wrinkle Shield™ Plus Option Help prevent wrinkles from forming in your clean clothes.

Quick Dry Cycle Finish drying a small load quickly.

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

* Documents require Adobe Reader.

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.

Nice & quiet

3/11/2017

I love this dryer - a short dry time with high heat works great for the majority of my clothes. The non-wrinkle motion is a nice feature. And it's nice and quiet.

Sounds like a can scrubbing on bike wheel spokes

Disappointed in GA 5/1/2016

Used the dryer 3 times and had to have a replacement because after the 3rd load it sounded like a flattened soda can scrubbing against the spokes on a bicycle wheel. And even after I removed the 4 shirts I had in there it still made the noise and it was immediate upon turning it on. I seriously hope the replacement never does that. Appliances are expensive and I believe that you should get a brand new product in perfect working order without having the headache and inconvenience tracking down the right people to make an exchange.

Good dryer, unbeatable price

11/6/2015

About what you'd expect from a dryer. It has a nice feature where it tumbles your occasionally tumbles your clothes until you get a chance to take them out. The price was unbeatable, though.

10/23/2015

We are happy with the purchase of the Whirlpool High Efficiency Front Load Dryer. The Energy STAR rating will help me keep our energy costs down. I like the option to put the dryer in energy saver mode, or not. If I am in a hurry, I don't use this feature, but normally, I do.

Dries clothes quickly.

Nice unit matches up with washer real nice. Dries clothes quickly and has drying options we need. Lint catcher filter doesn't work well though. Have to clean exhaust vent often.

We have read the instructions and did as it says, but my wife gets confused some times and it sounds like she is playing a keyboard. She dose get it though to wash as she wants it to. Thank you for a superior product.

Disappointed Life Expectancy on Heating Element

NewParents 6/2/2014

I had always thought paying the premium prices of the Whirlpool brand also meant great quality. My husband and I bought this product along with the washing machine. We have now been using it two years and 40 days and the heating element has stopped working. We have barely used the product as its just the two of us and an infant.We maintained clean dryer hoses too. Very disappointed! And I am out another $250 on top of what I paid for the machine.
