Timed Dry Allows you to run the dryer for a set period of time to help synchronize your washing and drying process.

Extra-Large Top-Mounted Lint Screen The extra-large top-mounted lint screen is located where it is easy to remove and replace. The larger size increases air flow and drying efficiency.

Adjustable End-of-Cycle Signal Avoid leaving items in the dryer with the adjustable end-of-cycle signal. Thanks to a helpful tone, you'll know when your dry cycle is finished. You can even adjust the volume if you'd like, or completely turn it off.

Interior Drum Light Interior drum light allows you to see inside the dryer for easy loading and unloading.

On/Off End of Cycle Signal Avoid leaving items in the dryer with the end-of-cycle signal. Thanks to a helpful tone, you'll know when your dry cycle is finished.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Happy in Oklahoma 11/14/2015

Whirlpool was competitive in price and a brand I have used many years. Just moved to a natural gas friendly area which had a rebate for gas appliances. Very happy with my purchase. Have 2 to 3 loads a day and the drying time is significantly less.

Pastorman 9/26/2015

We bought this after I had rebuilt our old 15 year old dryer several times over. I wasn't sure about buying on line, but what a great experience! The dryer arrived on time and in perfect condition. We use gas and needed a dryer that would handle load after load. This dryer gets the load dry quicker than any dryer we have owned and is super quiet, which makes everyone in our home happy.

Chris 7/3/2015

would not buy anything but whirlpool. The dryer I replaced was a whirlpool that I got fifty years ago . It served me well, ( did diapers and laundry for three children). Only had to replace belts a few times. Hated to replace but could not find anyone who had the replacement part needed. Love the new dryer.

Beth 6/13/2015

I bought a washer and dryer 6 months ago and wished I had not bought these models. I have used whirlpool washer and dryer for all of my 50 years of marriage and this is the first time I have been totally dissatisfied. I am happy to talk to anyone in the company and if I could I would sell it or return it ASAP and get something else.

Excellent Basic Dryer

Pcat 3/15/2015

I bought my Whirlpool dryer at the end of 2014. I didn't have a lot of money to spend so knew I was going for a lower cost machine. I have been pleasantly surprised at the quality of the dryer, and its features. The dryer is quiet. Noisy dryers tend to be even louder in a townhouse, but not this one; It is very quiet. It has all the features that a dryer really needs, easy to read dials, a light inside when you open the door, a lint vent that is conveniently located and easy to clean. It is simple to run and you don't have to be a rocket scientist or pour over the directions to figure out how to get the result you want. The heat settings are true temperatures so your clothes don't get old before their time. The wrinkle release that runs every few minutes, after the dryer is done, is a fabulous feature that I love. My clothes are always wrinkle free.while. It is a pleasure to own and use.

Exactly what we wanted

Di1N 12/10/2014

We bought this as a replacement for our old Whirlpool dryer (from the '80's!) and we love this dryer! We tried the eco-dry feature which senses when the clothes are dry and on a medium setting heavy jeans and sweatshirts were dry in probably half the time it used to take. T-shirts and tops and undies take even less time--this is a very efficient dryer which I look forward to having for a long time. Love the inside light --no lost socks!
