There's also an Enhanced Touch Up Steam cycle that uses steam to relax wrinkles and refresh clothes in as little as 20 minutes. This dryer makes sure you can dry any load from your Cabrio® Platinum top load washer with ease thanks to 7.6 cu. ft. of capacity. When paired together, you can save over $3,300 in lifetime energy costs thanks to the EcoBoost™ option with Eco Monitor.

    Dryer lint - awful

    By griff24

    from Oak Forest, IL, United States

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

    So I've had this dryer for only 4 months and it's constantly telling me to check the lint bin. The lint keeps falling in deeper in and not being caught. It's annoying and then doesn't dry the clothes.

    Like it so far

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

    Overall very satified. All of my owner manuals shows some drying options that my dryer does not have but would like on my dryer. I don't knowl why my model does not have them. Have somel minor issues with clothes not completly dry on occasion. I have adjusted the heat and that seemed to help.

    I don't like to iron if I can help it, so this dryer has been wonderful! Clothes dry quickly, and the various settings help prevent wrinkles. Used the steam feature once so far and am very pleased!

    Awesome product

    By Caligirl55

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

    I bought this dryer two months ago and am very happy with the purchase. It fits a lot of clothes and drys very quickly and evenly. I have cut down the amount of time clothes are in the dryer and just a few loads dries all of my laundry! Also the steam wrinkle function is useful. Very easy to clean out the filter as well. I would definitely recommend.

    I love this dryer!

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

    The best dryer I ever brought. Being able to use steam is absolutely the best advantage of having a Whirlpool dryer. I can't live without it. I love the door, how it opens and closes. Cleaning the lint screen is so easy, large capacity is great for linens, throws, and large items. There is nothing I don't like.

    Almost dry-er

    By dudewithcleanclothes

    from Chicago, IL, United States

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

    We purchased this dryer to match the Cabrio washer since our washing machine had died. The original Maytag dryer always left the clothes damp, and was noisy. This Whirlpool dryer doesn't perform any better, unfortunately. We usually end up setting on Timed Dry because the presets leave the clothes damp. Additionally, there's some piece of sheet metal within the cabinet that vibrates while the dryer is running. It's pretty darn loud! Shifting the cabinet will quiet it down sometimes.
