Whirlpool
Guessing if the load is dry is a thing of the past. The 6th Sense Technology and AccuDry sensors in this Whirlpool WGD5500XW-WW Cabrio 7.4 CuFt gas dryer figure out when your laundry is dry and stop the cycle for you. Together, they save 10 percent more energy than Whirlpool washers with the already-energy-saving AutoDry system. Plus, 10 automatic cycles with four temperature settings ensure that you get results, while the Quiet Dry noise reduction system helps keep the peace. And when your drying cycle is done, the Wrinkle Shield option helps prevent wrinkles from setting into clean, dry fabrics. No guessing about it.

total nightmare .. waste of energy and water too!!!

By chuck

from christopher il.

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt Front Load Gas Dryer:

had this machine for the past 6 years and has never got my clothes clean.. finally after throwing numerous parts at it have come to the conclusion was a waste of my energy and money spent on the unit. after sitting in front of the washer with a cup of coffee with a rainy day I decided to see why the clothes weren't coming clean. bypassed the safety lid lock and watched in total disgust that the washer would fill with water agitate for 5 seconds and sit there.. still sit there ...some of the clothes still not wet... then wow.. water pump draining.. this has been why my clothes haven't been getting clean for the past year.. reset the maching according to specs and still the same.. replaced the computer figuring that was why it wasn't agitaing any longer than 5 seconds.. same thing.. time for a new one NOT A CABRIO!!!!!

Very disappointed

By Chris

from Rochester, NY

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt Front Load Gas Dryer:

Very disappointed in this machine. It is only 6 years old and for the first 3 years it had very light duty as I lived by myself and only did 2-3 loads a week. Now the lid light flashes and it stops mid cycle. The only way to get it to work is unplug it and plug it back in. Service came out two weeks ago and changed the belt advising that it was the problem. Well the same problem continues to happen and we called service out again. Now they say the main control board has to be replaced at a cost of $240. That's in addition to the $160 bill last time they were out. Now our dilemma is do we sink more money into repairs or cut our losses and buy a new one. It is disgusting that appliances cost so much money and don't even last 10 years. I expected more from Whirlpool.

Would never recommend this washer

By Aggravated launderer

from Knoxville, tn

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt Front Load Gas Dryer:

We have not had a pleasan experience with this washer. We can not trust it to work consistently. Many times, the wash cycle does not complete. Clothes are left soaking wet in the drum. It may take 2 or 3 hours to complete a cycle, sometimes correctly and sometimes not. Laundry is time consuming as it is, repeating cycles is totally aggravating and wasteful.

not happy

By not happy

from Clinton Twp. Mi

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt Front Load Gas Dryer:

we bought the matched set 4 years ago thinking we were buy good quality items for the over $2000 we spent thought we would have machines to last a very long time. after all the ones we replaced were ancient hand me downs. the washing machine developed a leak was loud & noisey. finally it stopped agitating. we called a repairmen from our church. he informed us the washer was a very poorly made model & would cost over $400. to repair, & would end up having other issues. that we would be better off cutting our losses . needless to say im not rich & after spending a large amount of money to have it only last four years i am very unhappy!!!!!

Looks good

By camkid

from 100 Mile House, BC

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt Front Load Gas Dryer:

I bought this in August 2016 and am very pleased with it except for the fact it has 'default settings'. I don't care for that. I like to choose the 'default settings'. When I load the washer, it automatically goes to HOT when we all know that the majority of the time we want COLD. On my old machine, I always had it on COLD and when I need it for WARM or sometimes Hot, I CHOSE. Half the time I forget I have to push a button to move it to COLD and that doesn't make my life easier. I like to throw the laundry in, know it's automatically on COLD and turn the cycle on.

This is the only complaint I have about this machine. I long for the time we used dials and could leave the settings we want done the way we want.

Mediocre at best

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt Front Load Gas Dryer:

This machine is very noisey during its wash cycles. We had a non high efficient top loader before and it was more quiet during its wash cycles.
