Worst purchase experience ever
By Capital City Consumer
from Washington, D.C.
Comments about Whirlpool 3.8 Cu. Ft. Electric Dryer - White:
Buying this dryer and matching washer from a certain mostly mall-based major national retailer was a horrible experience. Paid for the machines in full in November 2013 and had to wait three months for delivery and installation. Terrible runaround from both the retailer and Whirlpool about when I'd get the machines, and several significant misrepresentations along the way. The dryer is made in Italy, yet the retailer promoted it as "Built With American Pride," suggesting it's made in the United States. It was also promoted with a side-venting option that, in fact, is a rear-venting variation that takes up more space than the standard rear-venting configuration. (The retailer waited until about a day before delivery to inform me of that issue, which very nearly made the installation unworkable.) And it was promoted as having an adjustable end-of-cycle signal that can be turned off, yet the signal, in fact, is not adjustable and goes off every three minutes for an hour until you turn the power off or open the door. (Sleep well!) Now, a year and a half after installation, the dryer heating unit has stopped working. If the retailer's extended-warranty repair process goes as smoothly as the sales and installation process, it will be a horrible experience, too. There are other similar (but slightly deeper) compact units that, if they would fit in my condo laundry closet, I would love to have. I'll never purchase a Whirlpool appliance, or any appliance from this retailer, again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We have been using the dryer for about a month now and are very happy with its performance. It dries clothes relatively quickly with minimal wrinkles.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

lotsa maint issues.
By Capt clayt

I purchased this Dryer and washer for my little condo that we use for 4 months out of the year. the appliances are in a narrow closet and thats why we purchased these narrower units. Any way the controls are in the front and are not very good. I have replaced the on/off push button on the dryer last year now this year the same control button stops working. These units are very heavy to be lifting up on the self were it normally sits. I am sorry I purchased these two units.
Simple easy to use

Bought this unit 3 weeks ago to replace a 27 year old Whirlpool dryer that was still working although not very efficiently. What a difference, I wish I had bought this unit when we first moved into our condo 1 1/2 years ago.

We needed a small stackable dryer for a closet. This dryer fit well and does a great job for its size.
Great Compact Machine
from Merritt, NC, United States
Replaced a full size front load washer. Needed to change to a more reliable brand. Had space restrictions because of location in my house. This unit fits quite nicely. It may be smaller than my previous machine but it is working out quite nicely. Has some nice features, like how it fixes out of balance situations. No matter how you load a front loader, it can still get out of balance, this solves the situation. Easy to use and has a lot of options on washing.

Outstanding compact dryer, compact but wholes a large wash load.

beeping won't stop!!!
from Bridgewater, NJ, United States
I regret buying this. When the dryer is done it just beeps and cycles and beeps. If you are in bed you lie there dreaming of a different dryer. It is awful and you can't dusable it.
Needed a new dryer and love that it dries so quickly when needed but also like the ecoboost feature when i dont needed dried fast so that i conserve energy.
