Image Feature

Advanced Moisture Sensing System

Three built-in sensors read incoming air temperature and outgoing air temperature while monitoring moisture levels inside the dryer. This helps the drying cycle end when everything is perfectly dry, saving time and energy and helping to prevent overdrying.

Image Feature

Quad Baffles

Get better, more balanced tumbling and increased effectiveness on small loads with the unique design of four shorter, staggered baffles. Now, larger items dry more evenly while smaller items keep tumbling without getting stuck riding the baffles.

Image Feature

Tap Touch Controls with Memory

Start your next load quickly using the sleek control interface of the Tap Touch controls with Memory. This technology allows direct access to dryer functions and even remembers your last cycle and settings to save you time.

7.3 Cu. Ft. Capacity Dry bulky items like comforters and sleeping bags in this 7.3 cu. ft. capacity dryer that provides enough space to care for loads from the matching washer with ease.

EcoBoost Option Use less energy while still getting great drying performance with the EcoBoost option that uses less heat and extended cycle times for greater energy efficiency.

Steam Refresh Cycle Clothes are ready to wear, thanks to the Steam Refresh cycle. It releases wrinkles and reduces odors without rewashing.

Wrinkle Shield Plus option with Steam Help keep wrinkles from setting into your clean clothes with intermittent tumbling after the dryer cycle ends. The process lasts for up to 140 minutes or until you open the dryer door. This model uses the added benefit of steam for even better wrinkle-fighting performance.

Sanitize Cycle Provides excellent care for your clothes while eliminating 99.9% of three common household bacteria without washing. Bacteria tested were K. pneumonia, staphylococcus aureus and P. aureginosa.

Undercounter Installation Able to be installed under a standard countertop, this dryer provides the flexible installation to easily fit in your laundry space. (39 inch counter height)

Quick Dry Cycle Finish drying a small load quickly.

Estimated Time Remaining LED Display Displays the estimated time remaining in the cycle, counting down until it 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.

Steam off!

Made in the USA 2/7/2017

I had to have the one with the steam function based on everyone else's reviews..and although it serves it's purpose, when I specifically put it on the steam off function, the steam still comes on when I just want it to warm up the clothes..so I end up having to use the timed dry instead. If there is an option for the steam to be off, it should work that way. Other than that, I like it.

Excellent Gas Dryer

Uncle Dave 1/24/2017

Bought this gas dryer to complete my pair and I am so happy that I did! The dryer comes with multiple settings including steam. I love that you can pick your cycle and add or subtract time as you wish. It is whisper quiet and I am only reminded by its chimes it plays when it's complete. Definitely a must have!!

Another Excellent unit from Whirlpoot

mnour 1/17/2017

We have been using Whirlpool equipment for ever. This is another great unit that we bought a month ago and have been using it ever since. It is great specially the new feature which I had never seen before that is steaming the cloths so they don't wrinkle. Awesome. I would highly recommend to everybody.

Great Dryer!

Andy 12/26/2016

Bought this dryer to replace an old Maytag dryer left from the previous owner. I initially was going to try and troubleshoot the old Maytag dryer but I ultimately decided to replace it for a newer, more efficient dryer. The Maytag dryer was pretty solid so I decided to look for another Maytag and saw that Whirlpool and Maytag are part of the same company, so I felt comfortable knowing I'd get a dryer of similar quality. This dryer feel very hi-tech, it's spacious with plenty of room for my clothes, and it even lights up so you can see what's inside! There's a lot of options but it's fairly intuitive. Great buy!

Whirlpool Is Always My First Choice

Trekker 11/11/2016

I have been using my Whirlpool WGD87HEDW for two weeks now. This is not long enough to provide a definitive review. However, I am very pleased with the function and options of this model. Whirlpool is a United States based company with manufacturing facilities in the USA which employ Americans. This fact coupled with my many years of using Whirlpool products makes Whirlpool my first choice when shopping for a new appliance.

So far everything is working well with this dryer. I like that the controls are pretty easy to figure out w/out needing to read the manual. I stacked the dryer on top of the washer so I could have more space in my utility room for other things, it works well, except that you have to be tall to read the controls.

Caroline 10/17/2016

I replaced my old stacked unit that lasted about 10 years for this whirlpool. So far it's been a great experience. Most of the clothes come out perfectly dry... only I have noticed that some of my kids sweatpants don't try properly on the wasteband area. What I love the most is how quiet it is!!! Sometimes I even forget it's on! The light is extremely handy considering I used to forget clothes inside the old dryer.. I have not used all the settings yet, but the ones I have used for sure do the job quite well. Once I get the check out that SteamRefresh function I will surely update this review.

Portal To Clean

Gwydhar 10/3/2016

You know how nice it is to have clothes and towels warm from the dryer? Well now I do! After years of sharing commercial grade washers in apartment complex laundry rooms that left everything just a *tiny* bit damp and prone to musty smells, this dryer is like a dream come true. I could sit and watch it tumble clothes for hours and since it is installed in the kitchen, sometimes I do.

Terry 8/25/2016

Love this dryer that I have had for about six weeks now. I am extremely happy with the variety of drying selections and especially how quickly the cloths become dry. My old front load dryer wasn't nearly as efficient. My favorite feature is the well designed lint screen; it is so easy to clean after each load and prevents lint from falling into the machine. In addition, I like the pleasant sound signals when the machine is done. One of the best appliance buys I have ever made!

Great Dryer

Busy Mom 8/3/2016

I bought this 10 months ago and so far its working great... just some things that it did not mention is to use fabric softener in the washing machine because the dryer sheets blacken the metal casing of dryer. The timing of the settings is not very accurate (sometimes the load is dry before the cycle finishes, or may be damp even though the cycle says its complete). However, very efficient machine, holds a lot, and is powerful. overall pleased with purchase.
