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.

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.

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.

EcoBoost™ Option Use less energy while still getting great drying performance 1 with the EcoBoost™ option that uses less heat and extended cycle times for greater energy efficiency.

Wrinkle Shield™ Plus Option Help prevent wrinkles from forming in your clean clothes.

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.

Met my Expectations

8/27/2016

I bought the Duet dryer to replace an 11 year Roper dryer ( also made by Whirlpool), though the dryer still worked well when the matching washing machine needed to be replaced. I am happy I did this as it is an excellent dryer- easy to use and with many good features my old dryer did not possess.

Outstanding Dryer and replacement for our 15 year old dryer.

8/14/2016

We just relocated into our final home (at 62 years old, I'm thinking this might be our last home). It matched closely with our High Energy washer, fit perfectly, and has run like a top since May 1st.

My dryer "the Lemon"

8/2/2016

I purchased this dryer less than 2 years ago and it is already having problems the service people cannot diagnose. It works fine most of the time, but intermittently it quits working. When it quits completely I will dump it and find something else with less electronic features (if there is such an appliance).I detest my washer too! My clothes and linens are ruined in less than 2 years.

Ladyrebecca 7/17/2016

I bought this about 6 weeks ago and have never been happier with an appliance purchase (except the Duet front-load washer). The dryer dries great, is quiet, and makes happy music at cycle end. I am as thrilled to do laundry today as I was 6 weeks ago.

Liserbean2 6/21/2016

I bought a stackable so that I could build a pantry in my laundry area. I have replaced all my appliances with whirlpool and picked this based on price, reviews and features. It is awesome!!! Super quiet, washes well, has all kinds of great settings. No regrets here.

Design improvement suggestions below.

6/4/2016

1. The touch buttons on the face of the machine are a nice feature - but - they should be recessed.If you reach out to hold the top of the machine with one hand - while opening the door with the other or,If you set a load of clothes onto the drier or,If you move a load of clothes from the top of the drier to place into the drier or,If you reach over the drier to reach a shelf above the drier -All of these actions result in contact by a hand, an arm, a hip, or waist in making contact with the on/off button and activating the electronics of the drier unexpectedly and unnecessarily.2. The lint screen front and back are so similarly designed that in low light conditions or not paying special attention - the lint screen can be inserted into the drier backwards. It is a real challenge to then remove it without damaging the screen.

So far, very happy with the dryer. We love that it stacks and that it has sensors to determine whether the clothes are dry (it does, right?). Pretty quiet overall and love the loading capacity. It's not a top of the line model so we didn't expect to have all the new features, but this has many of them and is a great value.

Works well, a little complicated to use

5/27/2016

I was looking for energy efficiency and the salesperson directed my to this dryer. It has lots of settings that I never use. I ended up having to read the owners manual after having a blip of a power interruption. The dryer shut off and it took me 15 minutes to find how to restart the dryer.It's not the most intuitive appliance use and unless you change defaults it makes lots of beeping noises.

This dryer is wonderful. I have had it only about a week, but it has made my life easier! It dries quickly and the clothes are fluffier too. I really like the way the dyer is filtered as the screen is large and easily cleaned. It gives me more selections for the type of load to be dried than my old machine.

Good Dryer

3/15/2016

I bought this on Valentine's Day to replace a 14 year old Kenmore washer and dryer I'd recently given away after purchasing a new home. It must've been a hot commodity because it was on back order until March 5th. The dryer performs well. A few things I wish were different, or at least changeable are you can't turn the sound of the buttons off, I had to dry a comforter for over 2 hours in order for it to get dry, and when a cycle is over if you don't address it immedicately it will continue to spin periodically, and the "end of cycle" noise will continue to play. Other than that, I like my purchase.
