Whirlpool
Help prevent damage caused by overdrying and spend less time in the laundry room with the 8.8 CuFt Whirlpool WGD8500DC Cabrio® high-efficiency gas steam dryer. It features Advanced Moisture Sensing that senses the needs of each load and adapts drying times, so that every load stops when clothes are perfectly dry. Four shorter, quad baffles bring more balanced tumbling results, even on small loads. And it's a steam dryer with cycles that help reduce wrinkles and odors so that clothes are refreshed without needing to be rewashed.

Quiet Steam Dryer

Comments about Whirlpool 8.8 CuFt Cabrio Front Load Gas Dryer:

The capacity is large enough for king size bedding. It is very quiet and I love the chimes when finished.

Great machine

By Curtis RN

from Irving, Texas

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 8.8 CuFt Cabrio Front Load Gas Dryer:

I bought this a month ago and I love it. I never understood why people spend so much on washers and dryers, now I get it. It holds a ton, looks great, easy to set up and use, great for comforters and large loads. Steam function is useful and cool, beats my old technique of throwing some wet laundry in with the wrinkled laundry and turning it on.

heated air intake gets really hot!

By Gordon

from Plainfield

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 8.8 CuFt Cabrio Front Load Gas Dryer:

Maybe the error is on my side, but when I select pre program options: (what to dry button) "casuals" and (how to dry button) "normal" the heat is on the hot side. The heat is high enough that pillow cases and running shorts will melt when they make contact with the heat intake grate. They way to fix this is to change the grate to a material that does not conduct so much heat. The temporary fix for my family is to separate clothes on the slightly delicate side to be dryed by themselves on low heat. That translates into more dryer cycles.
