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.

Comments about Whirlpool 8.8 CuFt Cabrio Front Load Gas Dryer:

Have had about a month. Bought with the washer as a set. Wish it wasn't quiet so deep in dimension.
4 inches deeper than the washer.

Front loader vs top loader HE

By Bags

from Saint Paul, MN

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 8.8 CuFt Cabrio Front Load Gas Dryer:

Had around a month so far and like it. Had to explain to my wife the difference between front and top load HE. She was thinking that it would fill up to the top like the old top load we had. As our biggest complaint was not enough water with front loader. I told her this does use more water then front load, which makes the detergent more concentrated with the water.

Been two weeks later and she got the point. Made in USA

It's Easy to Use

By Dr. G

from St. Louis

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 8.8 CuFt Cabrio Front Load Gas Dryer:

We really like the size and how much it holds. Don't like the lint collector. It is a hassle to clean. I have always bought Whirlpool products. They have been extremely reliable. I plan to stick with Whirlpool in the future when I buy my next appliance.

Excellent appliance with minor annoyances

By Heeter

from Syracuse NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 8.8 CuFt Cabrio Front Load Gas Dryer:

I bought this dryer over a month ago. I like its options and functionality for the most part however the lint trap is NOT user friendly (but the lint trap full warning light IS very user friendly). The dryer also makes a clicking sound routinely throughout its cycle.
