Gets load dry quickly!

Cindy 3/28/2017

I needed a gas dryer that would fit in my laundry room and was thrilled to find this one! Most of the newer dryers are much deeper and would have blocked the door into the garage. The fact that it was a Whirlpool was very reassuring. Every load I have done has dried much faster that expected.

TOO LOUD!

MK 3/1/2017

Dries fine. Motor is extremely loud. Wording around dial in shades of white and grey are difficult to read. Door does not feel solid, very light and the door latch seems cheap. Also does not always close the first try. Lint screen - difficult to remove lint, lint sticks

No, I do not recommend this product

Good design, works well

JB 9/23/2016

We bought this model to accommodate a smaller space and are happy with its simple controls and operation. It runs a little bit louder than our last dryer, but since its operation is efficient, it isn't on as long. We like that the lint trap is on the top.

Just what I expected it to be.

Crisco 9/16/2016

The only problem with this dryer is it is a little louder when running, compared to my previous Whirlpool Dryer. Will only buy Whirlpool products, as they last a long time with no problems. But I am sure that the cellar doesn't mind the slightly louder hum. LOL
