Product Overview↑ Back to Top

Whirlpool
This Whirlpool WED8800YC Electric dryer comes with quick refresh steam cycle which lets you tumble up to 12 garments in the dryer, letting steam technology relax wrinkles and remove odors. In just 15 minutes, clothes go from lying there to ready-to-wear. This high-efficiency dryer uses three built-in sensors that read incoming air temperature and outgoing air temperature while monitoring moisture levels inside the dryer, so the drying cycle can end when everything is perfectly dry. This saves time and energy as well as helping to prevent overdrying. The Eco Monitor allows you to see the eco-friendliness of each cycle or option you choose. The display rates energy use to show your overall eco-performance.

Good purchase, difficult installation

By Chelsea

from Haughton, LA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 7.6 CuFt Cabrio Electric Dryer:

We have had this dryer for maybe 2 months. When we received it, the installation was VERY difficult. First of all, the delivery guy told us that the electrical plug from our old dryer would not work on this dryer. We thought that was strange... but we went and bought a new one anyways. He was wrong, and we were out a little bit of money, when we could have just removed the plug from the old machine. THEN, when we attempted to install the electrical plug to the back of the machine, it was the strangest set up we had ever seen. Instead of prongs sticking out to hook the wires on, the wires slid up into the machine to be secured with a square shaped nut. Maybe we're a little old school, but that whole process seemed strange. The nut was supposed to stay secured within the machine, but unfortunately something was broken or broke during the process and it came out, making the wires impossible to tighten. (And you can't leave electrical wires loose!) Upon continued attempts to get the square nut back in it's place, we came to realize that the screw and nut that came together did not even thread together properly. So after much searching and assistance from a contractor, we found the appropriate nuts for replacement (no point in ordering new ones from Whirlpool because they were ridiculously expensive, who would guarantee what we wouldn't run into the same problem, and I wanted to dry some clothes!). The rest of the installation was easy -- exhaust and water line for steaming. And now I love the dryer! I love the steaming option, but it is a bit noisy and rattles. So I just shut the door to the laundry room.

Too Large For Our House

By Yaki

from Washington DC

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 7.6 CuFt Cabrio Electric Dryer:

My parents were focused on getting a big dryer, not realising that the machine didn't fit through the inner basement door. We had to deconstruct the back of the dryer and then remove a portion of door. But we got it into our basement. The machine works perfectly and we have no complaints thus far.

I've had dryer for 2 weeks and still can't use!!

By Hot in Florida

from Parkland, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 7.6 CuFt Cabrio Electric Dryer:

The very first load I put in dryer - the check vent light came on. I called and was told to unplug or flip breaker to reset board. That did not work. A service person had to be scheduled and he immediately said it was a clogged vent - even though I had the vent cleaned about 4 months ago. Had vent guy come back and reclean vent and check roof opening as well -- all clear. I was so happy until I put a load in and the the check vent light again. I contacted service person who told me I had to call for a new appointment -- and it will be at least 2 more days until there is an appointment available. A family of four cannot go 2 weeks without a dryer - especially when we are looking at a brand new one that we can't use!!

Good but noisy!

By rad4

from Huntsville, AL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 7.6 CuFt Cabrio Electric Dryer:

I bought this about 2 months ago and had it delivered. The guys set it up but I had to hook it up myself. The manual was very good and hookup was easy. My major complaint is that this darn thing is noisy because of vibration coming from something loose in the dryer. I have adjusted the feet but that doesn't seem to stop the noise. I can move it slightly one way or the other and push down on the top to sometimes get the noise to stop.
