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.

Super huge capacity, accurate sensors, and easy to install

By Chris

from Massachusetts

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 8.8 CuFt Cabrio Front Load Gas Dryer:

The capacity this dryer has is incredible. The eco option is great for those times when there isn't a rush to complete the load and want to save on energy. The steam option is great for when I need a refresh on my dress shirts and delicates. There are plenty of cycle features to get just the right setting for the load to dry. The dryer door is a little difficult at times to latch and requires some extra effort; you can't just swing it hard and should slowly push the door into the latch lock.

Has all the Great Features Best Feature is Drum Size

By RJammm

from Florida

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 8.8 CuFt Cabrio Front Load Gas Dryer:

My wife has a dozen of those king size hypo-allergenic feather blankets. In our old dryer, we would have to put them in with tennis balls, run for an hour, pull out, pull apart, repack, re-run for hours. The comforter would come out looking like a stray dog. With this puppy you put it in, hit start, and in about an hour the comforter comes out perfectly fluffed looking like it just came from the dry cleaner. - Best Dryer Ever!
