Whether it's your favorite sweater or that perfect pair of jeans, you can keep all your clothes looking and fitting great with the Whirlpool® Cabrio® Platinum dryer. Advanced Moisture Sensing automatically stops the cycle when everything is perfectly dry, helping to prevent overdrying, while the Sanitize cycle eliminates 99% of three common household bacteria without washing. 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.

    Great size and options

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

    I love this dryer. There is enough room inside to dry a large comforter and it doesn't take up too much space in my small laundry room. It is much quieter then my old dryer. It has a steam dry option which is bonus as I haven't had a need for it yet. The clothes come out clean and fresh and best off all it doesn't make my energy bill skyrocket. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an outstanding dryer.

    So many features & So Quiet!

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

    One word: AMAZING! I was concerned at first when I upgraded to a dryer with several electronic features. I am Very glad I did. A few of my favorite features are: One of the quietest dryers I have owned, It has a steam cycle that can get my wrinkles out in the morning, the gas dryer saves on my energy bill and my favorite feature is the EcoBoost! I always like to be Eco friendly and most importantly Save energy! I forgot to mention the dryer's moisture sensing abilities! It adjusts the drying time based on the moisture sensed and reduces the time if it does not require the programmed amount to dry completely! Did I mention how much I like saving $$! I also purchased the matching washing machine and it is Very Quiet! Using the features on both machines allows me to program specific needs for each load. I would definitely recommend this set to my friends and family!

    The best machine you can buy - you will love it - I've had more expensive machines and had lots of feedback from friends on their expensive machines but it's not about the price it's the machine !

    This is my third whirlpool dryer. Love it and all of the new features. It would take a lot for me to switch brands. Whirlpool has served us well for over forty years.

    love this dryer

    By Rich 9

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

    The fact that the top is cut back a couple inches makes it so much easier to to reach in and remove the clothes versus having to bend over and reaching in to remove the clothes. The different setting to dry on is also a big plus. Was able to dry a king size comforter on the bulky setting. Took total of three times to dry the comforter which was OK. Also the wrinkle touch up is a great feature and works well.

    I love the enhanced touch up cycle as I do leave clothes in the dryer at times. The sensor works well to cut back the time it takes to dry your clothes. The exterior is extremely nice looking!

    Touch up Steam Cycle is the best!

    By rb18

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

    It had been over 10 years since my last washer/dryer purchase - oh, how technology has changed everything! The Cabrio models were perfect for me as a single user. I have not regretted my choice for a moment - and, I love the touch up steam cycle for my dry clean only items that need to be refreshed!
