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.

EcoBoost™ Option Use less energy while still getting great drying performance 1 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.

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

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.

Needed Repairs Twice in a year!

MOD 8/10/2017

DO NOT purchase this product! This dryer needed a repair a month after it was installed. I've had it just over a year and it is out of warranty and it is broken AGAIN. I called Whirlpool and they can't help me because I didn't "Purchase" an extended warranty. I was hoping to get 5 years out if this dryer...at least! I will NOT PURCHASE ANOTHER WHIRLPOOL PRODUCT...EVER

bob 007 3/13/2017

we had a whirlpool dryer before we had the duet set and it looks like the washer outlasted the dryer so we bought the duet dryer to match the set. this one is not as fancy with all the bells and whistle the old one had but it does an excellent job. at quite a bit less cost

Way too hot!

Chocolabguy 11/14/2016

The glass on the door of this front loader gets so hot I would not want a child to touch it! The sensors seem erratic, on medium heat there's almost no heat at all! Called for warranty service a couple days after dealer installed, so we'll see what happens. Did not realize it was a discontinued model until I tried to register on the web site, would not have purchased it if I had known. Certainly does not match our prior experience with Whirlpool!

Excellent dryer

LGraham 10/14/2016

I've had this dryer in my vacation home which is occupied year-round by a grandchild and her children for a year now and it's going strong. It's quiet and does an excellent job of uniformly drying my clothing and bedding. It took a little time to adjust to the relocation of the grip for opening the door, but that's a negligible difference from my other Whirlpool in my own home. I've been very happy with all my Whirlpool products and heartily recommend them.

Dries clothes, mostly.

Nicole 10/2/2016

I bought this dryer about 4 months ago. It is functioning mostly very well. One thing that I find annoying/disappointing is that the only way to auto-dry clothes on "low" heat is to use the "sensitive" setting. This setting doesn't dry clothes properly even on 'more dry' and when I've also adjusted the underlying settings to 'much drier clothes' (F3). I contacted the manufacturer who told me that of course they don't dry them thoroughly; that sensitive is only intended for blouses/underwear etc that need super sensitive drying and you hang them to finish the dry. Unfortunately a lot of normal (eg cotton t-shirt style) clothes shrink when on medium/normal heat, so I want to dry most of my clothes on low heat. I can make them dry when I use timed dry, but I do prefer to use auto when possible so it's just a bit annoying.

Great machine

Projectcop 9/13/2016

Bought the dryer about a month ago, and it's been fantastic. Love that it's energy star rated. Clothes dry pretty quickly, and having the different settings for types of laundry is great. My only peeve is the location of the power button. We didn't stack the dryer, so the power button is at waist height. We have a shelf over the washer and dryer that we keep detergent and fabric softener on. When we first got the dryer, we kept accidentally pressing the dryer power button while reaching up to get detergent. We've since moved those items, so it's no longer a problem. It's a good looking machine. I would love to have the matching washer, but that will have to wait until our current washer bites the dust.

Not my first Duet.

Gram of 3 8/21/2016

The previous one is still going strong at my grandchildren's house. There is one thing that is an issue with this dryer. I have put it in a stacked configuration and doing so has made it difficult to read the settings because the dial is in the way. One suggestion would be to put all of the settings on one side or the other.

Not exactly sure why we waited so long to get a new Whirlpool washer and dryer but we are extremely glad we finally did. What was taking hours to dry before is done in a few minutes and the washer really cleans our clothes. Well worth the price as a matter of fact it was less expensive than most of the completion and i can not see them working this well.

Signals when done?

Steve 8/13/2016

Sometimes, the simplest features are the best. I love the fact that this dryer signals when the clothes are dry. My last dryer did not have that feature. If I didn't hear the dryer go off, sometimes I left dry clothes to wrinkle. That does not happen now. My only concern is, on occasion, it is difficult start and takes 2 or 3 tries.
