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:

    I bought this dryer (along with the matching washer) almost 3 months ago. I waited to do the review until I was familiar with them. We are both so pleased with our choice. I did a lot of research before purchasing and liked what I read. The machines are manufactured in North America for one. Also, they are easily repairable with easy to locate parts and no "special" service training required, which is something to think about if purchasing a machine made overseas. I read many great reviews and I agree, it's a wonderful dryer. I really like the tinkling tones the machine makes which is something no one else has mentioned. Another thing, that maybe most people take for granted and isn't mentioned anywhere is there is a light in the dryer! My last one (20 yr old Inglis didn't have a light and I missed it). Some people have mentioned that the lint filter is hard to clean. Maybe they are not aware that it is folded and you can unfold it to clean it? That must be it because it's easy to clean. It is a very fine mesh filter too so that you get really good results. I love the sensor which stops the dryer when the clothes are dry. No more over-dry clothes! Good Job Whirlpool!

    Dead within a month

    By JARDLR

    from Springfield, Ma

    Comments about Whirlpool 8.8 CuFt Cabrio Front Load Gas Dryer:

    Huge disappointment.
    Purchased this from Costco.com and had it less than a month (25 days). Was drying a load of laundry, smelled something burning and went in and found it stopped and won't start. Now waiting for Whirlpool customer support to be open to see how to get warranty support.
    This replaced a 20 year old Maytag dryer that was still working.

    warm/hot

    By Emily48081

    Comments about Whirlpool 8.8 CuFt Cabrio Front Load Gas Dryer:

    I bought this dryer sight unseen. I am not fond of the lint filter. It's hard to open in order to remove the lint. I am still getting used to the settings. Most of the time I have to adjust the controls to get a warmer/hotter cycle. When I am in the room directly upstairs from the dryer in the basement, I can hear the dryer running. We have not hooked up the steam feature yet, so I cannot comment on that.
