    Replaced 35 year old Kenmore Dryer

    By True Spartan

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Whirlpool 7.0 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

    After 35 years we needed to purchase a new dryer. This Whirlpool has all the features Consumer Reports recommended and at a great price. Dries most loads easily on Medium and the Energy Saving setting; including jeans. Our only complaint is that the door opens to the side rather than down; making it more difficult to load and unload without items falling on the floor. Otherwise, an excellent dryer.

    Fast drying, clothes are fresh

    By Turbogene

    Comments about Whirlpool 7.0 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

    Very happy with this budget dryer. It dries well and quickly (reasonable, medium to heavy loads). The wrinkle shield option is nice, this way the clothing comes out less wrinkly if you forget it in the dryer for a while. It spins it occasionally so that clothing doesn't lay in one spot and get wrinkly. Setup was easy, I did it on my own with a new hose kit (purchased that separately). It's not super quiet, but just fine since it's in a dedicated washer room. Very happy so far.

    Whirlpool Clothes Dryer

    By Jany

    from Las Vegas, NV, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 7.0 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

    My older Whirlpool dryer was thirteen years old. I am so afraid of appliances igniting a fire. So when it started to not dry properly I decided it was time for a new dryer. I have been using Whirlpool for the past forty years......with hardly any problems. Since I live alone and do not have loads and loads of wash to do I bought a very simple dryer. I like it very much, it does the job it is intended to do.The only thing negative is the door handle.....The handle on the old dryer was simple, you pulled down. On the new dryers the door opens from the side, this makes the handle hard to open. Also it is made of a different type of material. I actually use a little jar opener plastic thingy or two hands when opening the door. Except for this design....which I am thinking was designed by someone who does no laundry, I am happy with my new dryer.

    After further investigation I found that the dryer was not defective but the exhaust extension was clogged up...

    Love this dryer

    By Silaurie

    Comments about Whirlpool 7.0 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

    I just replaced my 34 year old Whirlpool dryer with this new one. My 34 year old dryer still worked great, but I was tired of not having an auto dry/sensor dry option. It also ran quite hot with only two temperature settings, with black interior, and no light. So you imagine this new dryer is quite an upgrade! I love having ex low, low, medium and high temperature settings. I love having the auto dry (accu dry). As long as you don't mix fabrics it works great. If you mix fabrics, ex. synthetic with cotton and set it to Eco or damp dry, the synthetic will be dry, but the cotton will be damp. If all cotton, or all synthetic, it will all be dry or all damp dry depending on what you set it at. Having a white interior, light and hamper door makes getting clothes out so easy, let alone finding black socks! I can't believe dryers were even ever designed with black interiors. The dryer is not "quiet" but is not terribly noisy. I don't think it has soundproofing, but at this price point that would be icing on the cake. I chose this dryer for these reasons: five temp settings (if you include no heat), auto sensor drying (this one uses Accu dry), mechanical rotary dials, this was important to me. My last dryer lasted a long time, rotary dials last much longer than computer chips. Also great reviews, Whirlpool name, hamper door, and traditional lint trap - collects much more lint than the little ones in more expensive dryers. I have a fancy front load washer that is computer chip driven and has all kinds of wonderful features which i love, but for the dryer, i just wanted something simple that wouldn't over dry my clothes and also had multiple temperature settings. It is perfect!

    I recently bought a new whirlpool dryer and I am completely satisfied with its performance. It's quiet, efficient and came with a five year warranty.

    Easy to use

    By Saheb

    from Troy, MI, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 7.0 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

    As mentioned above, a great attraction for me was the ease with which I could use it without actually referring to the Owner's manual. It takes less time than my previous dryer to dry the same amount and type of clothes. I do hope it lasts a long time and, it appears from its performance so far, that it will.

    When you want the best, buy Whirlpool.

    Comments about Whirlpool 7.0 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

    I am 85 years old and I just bought a new Whirlpool washer, dryer and dishwasher. Each does a thorough job and that pleases me! I mistakenly bought some other brands and if they wear out before me, I'll replace with Whirpool.
