Image Feature

Advanced Moisture Sensing

Advanced Moisture Sensing helps to prevent damage caused by overdrying by using three sensors to track moisture and temperature, adapting drying times to end the cycle at just the right time.

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.

Image Feature

Steam Refresh Cycle

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

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.

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.

7.4 Cu. Ft. Capacity Dry bulky items like comforters and sleeping bags in this 7.4 cu. ft. capacity dryer that provides enough space to care for loads from the matching washer with ease.

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)

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.

Quick Dry Cycle Finish drying a small load quickly.

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.

MI Kate 10/4/2017

When we had our first Whirlpool front load, we did not get the matching dryer since we had replaced our dryer recently. I strongly recommend to have the matching dryer- odes a much better job. I am learning how to get the most out of the new machine rather than doing what I've always done. Seems to be working well.

Karen 8/2/2017

If I could rate a 0-I would. New Dryer broke in 3 weeks. Wouldn't turn on. Ease of use and design mean nothing if won't turn on. Whirlpool was very unhelpful. Took another 7 days to get parts. Wouldn't replace the dryer.

True North 7/22/2017

Very pleased with my new Whirlpool gas dryer . I love the Wrinkle Shield feature . It's a pleasure knowing that I don't have to babysit the dryer and get the clothes out immediately after clothes are dry. The capacity is perfect dry clothes evenly. Love this dryer!

Complete Disassembly Required

Housework 7/22/2017

If I could give a 0 I would. An LP conversion kit needed to be installed... You need 4 hours to take the dryer COMPLETLY apart and fight to replace the parts because screws are poorly located, then COMPLETLY reassemble the machine - all without a schematic - because one is not provided and customer support provides no support. I am out 4 hours labor for installation services instead of one hour. Add that to the cost before you consider purchasing. Avoid all together if you need to convert to LP. I will think long and hard before I buy another Whirlpool product... my biggest questions are why did engineers think this was a good design, and why didn't they make an access panel for servicing the gas components? Didn't need to do this on my old dryer!!

Ami 7/20/2017

Overall, a good dryer. Getting used to which settings to use for different fabrics/load sizes. Some loads are still damp after dryer cycle finishes (the sensor must not completely figure out the moisture level.) Slightly louder than expected, but nothing bothersome.

Disappointed

Karen 7/8/2017

Brand new! Only 3 weeks old and broke twice. Two different issues. Metal parts mixed in with our clothes. Then me ed a new control board. Serviced by Whirlpool recommended company. Takes 3 days to schedule and then once they come, takes 5-7 business days for parts to be ordered. "Backordered". Then once parts come in you have to schedule for them to come and install. Still waiting for 2 parts. Issue is not the service company -issue is quality of product and the poor customer service. Shouldn't break twice in 3 weeks. Haven't had a dryer in 8 days. If you want a dryer that doesn't work 2 of the 5 weeks you own it -by all means purchase. Whirlpool doesn't believe they should provide a new dryer. If I could give a 0 for product quality, 0 for customer service and 0 follow up I would!

Dryer performance

George 7/5/2017

I bought this to dryer to replace my 7 year old Whirlpool dryer that parts were obsolete. It has the same fit on the pedestal even though it is not a perfect match with the washer. So far after 2 weeks this dryer is quiet & dryer faster the only thing that was annoying at first was the control sound level that we got used too. Bottom line it dries faster & is quiet while running.

So gald I switched!

Charlie 5/29/2017

I've wanted to switch to a gas dryer for some time but my original Whrilpool washer and dryer lasted so long never thought I would. But all good things come to an end and the washer finally needed a repair I was not willing to do after sixteen years of service so we decided to gat a new washer and gas dryer. The old dryer was still working fine but we decided to upgrade the pair at the same time. The new set works great and we could not be happier, Thanks Whirlpool.
