Whirlpool
Preserve the perfect fit of all your favorite clothes with the large capacity of the Whirlpool WGD88HEAC-CHR 7.3 CuFt HE gas dryer, which virtually eliminates shrinking and over drying with Advanced Moisture Sensing. Three sensors monitor temperature and moisture levels in the dryer to ensure the dry cycle stops when everything is perfectly dry.
The drums stainless steel construction presents a smooth surface that helps deliver ultimate gentleness by cradling clothes as they tumble, while four shorter, staggered baffles increase the effectiveness of the dryer and promote better, more even tumbling. Tap Touch controls allow direct access to cycles and options like the EcoBoost option, and their sleek appearance enhances the appeal of any space.

still waiting for perfection

By frustrated Mom

from Washington

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 7.3 CuFt Front Load Gas Dryer:

guess I wanted it to be perfect.. the sensor feature for dryness isn't accurate, clothes come out damp in spots. shouldn't have to use the bulky option for 6-7 tshirts. would like it to continue to tumble until I can get to the clothes, don't like that it stops and wrinkling sets in, hard to hear the signal when done, so don't always get there in time. maybe I'll come to like it as time goes on

Wonderful appliances

By Trish

from Houston, TX

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 7.3 CuFt Front Load Gas Dryer:

I have had the matching washer/dryer for almost 2 years now and they are superb. No issues with the appliances, easy to use controls, and they are quite quiet. Also, you can fit a really big load to minimize the number of loads washed. I highly recommend.

Digital and Appliances are a stupid idea

By BMWFXR

from Fort Worth Texas

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 7.3 CuFt Front Load Gas Dryer:

While I understand why companies have gone to digital with appliances it is the single biggest complaint I have about all of them. This one is no different. I don't want an appliance that thinks for itself. Case in point. If you set the dryer to dry a load and let it monitor itself for moisture(part of the energy efficiency programming) they often won't get dry. A dryer that won't dry clothes is an engineering and design fail. For the most part you have to set the dryer to a set time and by pass all of the energy efficiency settings for it to be a slam dunk. And I know what will be the first thing to fail on this unit...the circuit board or control unit that controls all functions. My last dryer lasted about 30 years, I expect this thing to last about 10 at the most. Digital sucks...analogue is king in appliances. This unit is in my business and will be used several times a day for towels only so it will be interesting to see how it last over the long haul. I bought it not because I had a choice but rather it was one of the only units at the store they had in stock, my choice would have been no frills. I would never recommend any appliance with digital or computer control functions, but try finding one in modern times without.

Love my dryer!

By Carrie

from League City, Texas

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 7.3 CuFt Front Load Gas Dryer:

I was uncertain of the purchase, as it was needed simply because our previous dryer didn't fit with new home. We weren't purchasing washer, wasn't sure about non matching, etc. But, oh so glad we did! Love the setting options an it's so quiet. The steam option is fabulous! Still learning some of the control settings, but so far great!

Consumer's Report Top Buy

Comments about Whirlpool 7.3 CuFt Front Load Gas Dryer:

Christie's Appliances gave us a great deal.
Electric dryers are like belly buttons, everybody has one. To find a good gas dryer is a lot harder. The Whirlpool Duet fills the bill - quiet & efficient. Don't forget the companion washer for the two units compliment each other.

Great Dryer

By The Glassman

from Pensacola, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 7.3 CuFt Front Load Gas Dryer:

We bought this to go with a front-load washer in order to stack them in our small laundry area. We have had it almost a month and could not be happier. The large drum holds everything, including comforters and dog beds. The wrinkle guard with steam is a nice added feature. It lost one star because you cannot completely customize all settings.
