New dryer

maddysg 10/31/2019

The machine was chosen by the builders of my new condo. It does a good job of drying. I particularly like the quick dry feature so that I can choose how long I want items to dry. I do wish, however, that there was a louder sound when the dryer was finished.

Best dryer ever

USNDCP 8/15/2019

We bought this for our new house and was unsure because of the last one we bought years ago did not dry well. This one has changed our minds again dries everything very quick and being On a pedestal makes it easier as we age

Whirlpool dryer

cp65 6/12/2019

I have had this dryer for a month. This dryer is much quieter than my previous dryer but it doesn't dry as well and some loads take longer to dry. The drying time can take over 90 - 105 minutes for a load of towels and a load with jeans in it. It would be nice if the add time on the dryer let me adjust the dryness. Being new to this dryer it isn't always intuitive to me which setting to choose.
