    Easiest dryer to get cloths in and out of

    By MJMc

    from Houston

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

    I purchased this dryer about two months ago. I must say the design makes it very easy to get cloths in and out. It sits a little higher then most dryers so you don't feel like you are standing on your head trying when pulling cloths out to fold. The steam cycle is awesome, have used it many times already saving me from ironing before work.

    Love this Washer and Dryer!!

    By jhmar10

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

    I was worried about how this washing machine might work well, not have the agitator in the middle, but it works amazingly well!! Our clothes come out so much cleaner and better smelling with this new machine. We also bought the matching dryer set with the extra capacity. It is huge and I can now do double the laundry in the same amount of time. This was definitely a great investment and time saver for me. I would have to say that my one complaint is that on the dryer, though it appears to have a window on the front, you cannot see the clothes while they are drying. It is more for show so that it matches the style of the washing machine. However, you can visibly see through the washing machine and watch as your clothes are being washed, something my kids have loved to do. Overall, excellent product.

    I got this washer about a month ago to replace a Kenmore Oasys Elite. It is so much better than my old one. I noticed the clothes smell so clean now out of the washer. I like all the options.

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

    I bought this machine for several reasons. We replaced a older Whirlpool machine. The fact that this one had a higher than usual door access for my wife clinched the deal.
