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

By Disappointed

from Rochester Hills MI

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt HybridCare 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 HybridCare 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.

Don't know what all the complaints are about

By Kittie_inFL

from Orlando, FL

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt HybridCare Front Load Electric Dryer:

I have had the previous model # of this Dryer more than a year and I couldn't be happier. It makes a different noise than a traditional Dryer but not necessarily louder. It also takes a bit longer to dry, but the literature was very up front about that. Idk how a new Dryer could arrive non-functioning as others have complained about, but that seems to me like a problem with where they purchased it from. I have bought appliances from different stores and anytime I had an issue within the first 30 days my store made it right. I've also never had these described issues with whirlpool whether I was in or out of warranty and I always buy whirlpool for all appliances in the house...maybe it's a regional thing?!? I just wanted to weigh in and say maybe it's not the Dryer or manufacturers fault, just the poor handling from the sales and repair companies they had to deal with.

My clothes dry faster hanging on a line!

By Wearing Damp Underwear

from Lancaster PA

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt HybridCare Front Load Electric Dryer:

We bought this dryer 9 months ago after a dryer fire. We have tried to be patient and learn new laundry habits but we are completely over this dryer. As I type this, my dryer has been running for 3 -1/2 hours on the same load. Average drying time is probably about 4 hours. Towels take more like 6-8. It is noisy and makes our laundry room very hot. I really regret buying this machine.

ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE!!!!

By Jen with wet clothes

from Boston, MA

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt HybridCare Front Load Electric Dryer:

This is the worst machine and the biggest waste of money (and a lot of it) that I have ever spent! Please spare yourself the absolute nightmare that I have experienced with this machine - DO NOT BUY A WHIRLPOOL VENTLESS DRYER! The machine did not work the first time we used it and the lint door was broken. The first repairman told me that I needed to purchase a pedestal so the hose didn't bunch and said that the pedestal would correct the error codes and he supposedly ordered a new vent door. After spending another $250 on a pedestal that did not come with the proper screws, the dryer continued to have error messages and did not function. Another repairman came to try to fix it and indicated that the dryer needed a new part and said he did not have the part but would expedite the repair. That still has not happened! I received a nonfunctioning dryer and demanded a new replacement. I paid for a brand new dryer. I did not pay for a refurbished dryer which is essentially what Whirlpool indicates I am entitled to. Charge full price for a new dryer, deliver a broken dryer, and then claim that the customer is not entitled to a new replacement dryer, but rather a repaired dryer. In other words, a refurbished dryer. A warranty should be protective if a new and functioning machine breaks during the warranty period, not used to allow a broken machine to be sold and then fixed after the consumer reports it as broken. This fiasco has lasted 3.5 months so far and I still do not have a functioning dryer. Did I mention - DO NOT BUY!

useless

By broken hearted

from nc

Comments about Whirlpool 7.4 CuFt HybridCare Front Load Electric Dryer:

I purchased this dryer 9/1/16 & had to wait 28 days for it to arrive. I was like a kid at Christmas waiting for the day to come & finally it was here. After just one (1) use the dryer broke! You can imagine my surprise and deep disappointment. Whirlpool did send a repairman out in good time however, I had to wait another 15 days for the replacement parts to arrive, Once it was repaired it worked for about 4-5 more uses and broke again. In total 3x's the repairman has made repairs-only to have it break again. I am now waiting for another repairman for repair #4. Keeping in mind I paid well over a $1000.00 for this dryer and have only had it in my home for about 40 days-only to spend more time not being able to use it VS using it. I will say that the few times I was able to use the Whirlpool Ventless Dryer I did like the results it produced. This is my first time ever purchasing a Whirlpool product.
