whirlpool doesn't stand behind it

By john

from Philadelphia, Pa

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt Front Load Electric Dryer:

the filters on the dryer let coins and collar stays thru to the motor. motor wrecked. Whirlpool says "not covered by warranty." It's a major design flaw that lets change thru the air filter. Don't buy unless you either have no change, are PERFECT at emptying pockets, or you have a big reserve fund for repairs.

Very Pleased

By PJ

from Columbus, Ga

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt Front Load Electric Dryer:

I bought this about three months ago. Very pleased with it. I had been using a regular dryer with an inside vent kit. This dryer does everything I hoped it would. Takes almost all of the moisture out, unlike the prior vent kit. Still produces a little heat but 100% better than regular dryer. Clothes feel softer. Takes longer to dry the clothes but worth it.

Fluffed cloths

By Dryer person

from Franklinville NC

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt Front Load Electric Dryer:

Like however it does make room a tad warmer and the filter when you clean it is easy to get turned around/ maybe the word front on it would help.But over all drys fast and need less Downey in washer for the fluffy aspect. Guess I'll see if the power bill is less.

Truely ventless, dries well

By New House Owner

from Maine

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt Front Load Electric Dryer:

We bought this dryer because it was the only one we could find that did not require some kind of an exhaust vent through one our well insulated exterior walls. Previous review mentioned noise and this dryer is noisy. In addition to the expected tumbling sounds of the clothes in drum, there is whine, not exactly high pitched but certainly additional. I assume it is the heat pump, but I feel it could have been reduced but probably not entirely eliminated. Be aware there is more screen cleaning with this dryer than others but it is not that much of a bother. One does have to take care as the screen seem delicate.

energy efficiency

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt Front Load Electric Dryer:

While the drying time is a little longer it is acceptable. Only downside is that it has an annoying high pitched whine sound.

Excellant controls

By Stay at home Pat

from Drexel Hill, Pa

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt Front Load Electric Dryer:

I have had this ventless heat pump dryer for about one month. The reviews when I bought it were not that great but I needed a ventless dryer so I bought it. I could not be more happier than I am. I have washed everything from bedsheets, towels, matress covers bulky clothes, delicates and everything in between. They all come out completely dried. Very little wrinkles! Easy to clean filters and a joy to operate the dryer. Thank you Whirlpool because of this dryer we are able to stay in our home of 47 years.

I love this dryer

By Anne

from Indiana

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt Front Load Electric Dryer:

I love this dryer. We built a passive home and we were excited about getting this condensing dryer with a heat pump rather than a more standard European condensing dryer. We haven't had any issues with it and I love the energy efficiency of the dryer. I always use the energy efficient setting; it take a little longer to dry but I don't mind that.

Design flaw

By everet

from north york

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt Front Load Electric Dryer:

nice unit and technology. Drying time will be longer but that's adaptable. The unit does not fit all closets. The biggest design flaw is that the unit has to be pulled out to clean an air vent in the back once a month. How are older people going to handle that? We hope we can return it and change to another brand.

A LEMON -- It just does not work (E1 F9)

By Disappointed

from Rochester Hills MI

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt Front Load Electric Dryer:

We keep getting the error code E1 F9 and the machine stops. Repair technicians have been out 5 times to replace:

- motherboard
- user interface screen
- pump
- float switch

I have had the entire machine torn apart and spread out in the laundry room and hallway 3 times. It works for 2-3 loads after they leave and then we get the same error code. We now can only use this on Timed Dry...and even then it only works 2 out of 3 times.

Bottom line is this: unproven technology that was rushed to market without proper testing and quality control. We have always had Whirlpool products in our laundry (love the load and go washer) but this is a huge disappointment. Going to call for service (again) and have to stay home from work (again.)

What I really want is the equivalent VENTED dryer and a refund for the price difference. Oh yeah...and since I bought a 3rd party extended warranty plan for $150...I would like that refunded as well. But...the call center agents do not seem to be able to make that happen.

I would not recommend this product to my worst enemy.

Thanks.

Our First Ventless

By High Rise Happy

from Indianapolis, IN

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt Front Load Electric Dryer:

We've recently moved into a high rise condo. The building requires ventless dryers if the unit owners want to install their own and we complied. We were warned drying time would be long, but the convenience of having the dryer in our unit is worth the longer cycles. And the quality of the "dry" for each type of load is exceptional. We purchased the dryer in combination with a washer and could not be happier.
