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.

Design flaw

tklemko 2/8/2018

The only thing wrong with this dryer is a design flaw. The top has a raised ridge around it. The lint filter is pulled with in the ridge making whatever it dropped very hard to pick up. If the top was smooth it would be easy to just wipe it off the edge.

Simple and affordable

Jomoma 11/20/2017

We have had this dryer for several months now and it works well. It is simple and easy to operate with classic knob controls. It is one of the few dryers still available with the hopper door (hinged on the bottom).

Huge, fast, dry

7/17/2017

This dryer handles huge loads, including bulky items, and dries them evenly in less than an hour. It is quiet, except for the "Finished" buzzer, which we can hear from anywhere in the house. We use the auto dry setting, and don't have problems like shirts getting stuck inside of sheets, and still being wet (our old dryer had that problem). The controls are simple and easy to use. Despite being huge on the inside, this is the only (non-stackable) dryer we could find to fit in the limited space of our laundry room. The filter is very efficient at capturing lint, so it should be emptied after every load.

Does not dry clothes in the first run

Ram 6/26/2017

I bought this a month ago along with washer. Washer seems to be working well but dryer does not seem to meet the standards. Everytime we put clothes in dryer, we have to run it twice and sometimes it's thrice. Whirlpool either need to fix the fundamental problem with the product or discontinue and introduce a new model which works better and dries the clothes in first run.

Grammer 3 5/24/2017

Purchased first part of April. Moved into a different home that required electric dryer. Owned a 2002 gas dryer which had served my needs well. However, this is a big improvement in 15 years.

Third Times A Charm!

Three Strikes...Dryer 4/24/2017

This dryer is horrible! I thought my clothes weren't drying because just maybe I was over loading it. NOPE. Even on the highest dry setting and less clothes it still takes three times to dry. I haven't even had this dryer for 8 months and this is what I'm dealing with now. I'm definitely calling in the morning to speak with someone about this because I'm tired of having to run my dryer more than once to dry my clothes.

Perfect Dryer

Shelley 3/16/2017

Bought this to replace my 18 year old whirlpool dryer that still worked great but the matching washer finally after 18 years broke down for the first time. Decided it was time to get a new set. Dries fast, works great and very quiet. Glad I made this purchase and stayed with a brand I know to be well made and long lasting.

Best Dryer Around

Mary the Vegan 12/29/2016

I've had this dryer for three months and love it. I wanted one with a pull down door and simple controls that are not electronic. The design is perfect and it dries in much less time then you would expect. It has a high, medium and low heat and timed or damp sensitive timer. It is quiet and has a buzzer if you want to use it.

Does it's job

Laundry Maven 12/26/2016

We purchased this dryer a few weeks ago. I use the low setting for pretty much everything except for sheets and towels and most things come out dry the first time around. I use the "more dry" option, however, because the "energy preferred" option didn't dry the clothing as well. I also like that the door opens down instead of toward the side. Personal preference, I guess.
