    ENERGY EFFICIENT? NOT SO SURE.....

    By Tripsrme

    from Washington, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 7.6 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

    The dryer top was dented by the installers and so don't know what to do about that? The reason that I replaced my previous dryer; was because it was not drying like it used on a regular timed cycle. I kept having to hit the reset button. The new dryer; I pretty much was doing the same thing. Then, my niece said "why don't you just ignore the Eco meter rating and set it to the most inefficient drying meter mode?" Well.....she is an absolute genius as the clothes dry better when I just ignored the rating button! Still not sold on the dryer as I just tried the ignore Eco Monitor approach yesterday.

    I love this dryer, it has a large capacity for blankets, comforters, or just large load of clothes. Also has extra features, many choices for whatever you are drying.

    Great Machine

    By biguel

    Comments about Whirlpool 7.6 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

    This machine has so many features, its unbelievable. It has a "eco monitor feature" which helps to save energy. I love the way the door opens, so I do not have to bend over when folding clothes on top of the machine. It even has a steam feature. Its a great machine.

    Doesn't dry everything.

    By Naturegal77

    from Gregory, MI, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool 7.6 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

    I have always had a Whirlpool dryer & was hoping this was really going to be an energy saving purchase. But with the " green" setting the load is never dry & even with the so-called " good" setting rather than best , I have to drape things around the house to dry. This occurs with any size load. I was hoping this dryer could sense size & dryness of load & adjust accordingly, but it does not.

    Great product

    By sweetpea45

    from Sewell, NJ

    Comments about Whirlpool 7.6 Cu. Ft. Gas Dryer - White:

    This dryer is fantastic. The towels dry soft and the permanent press clothes come out winkle free. It's larger enough to dry king size blankets as well as the comforter. Whirlpool has always made a great product and still does.
