Rated 4 out of 5 by from energy efficiency While the drying time is a little longer it is acceptable. Only downside is that it has an annoying high pitched whine sound. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant controls 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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our First Ventless 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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't know what all the complaints are about 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My clothes dry faster hanging on a line! 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing quality We were really looking forward to our high efficiency dryer. After waiting 5 weeks (they told us 4 weeks, and it ended up being a week late) it finally arrived, it was installed, and ... it didn't work! The repair person spent 2 hours troubleshooting and ended up *guessing* that the problem was the motor and solenoid. We're now waiting for parts (which could take another week!). We've been really happy with our two previous sets of Duets. This has been tremendously disappointing.

Measure Your Space

Width (side-to-side):

Add 1" to each side for air circulation.

Height (top-to-bottom):

For top-loading units, add at least 20" for door clearance.

Depth (back-to-front):

Add at least 6" to depth for door clearance, dryer vents and hookups.

Installation Space:

Requirements for new washer and dryer install: level floor with no more than 1" slope, location supporting a dryer exhaust system and hot and cold water lines within 3' of washer hookups.

Entrance & Doorways:

Measure doorways, hallways and entry points that new laundry pair must pass through.

Choose Front-Load or Top-Load

Front-Load
  • Great washer performance
  • Uses less water than traditional top loaders
  • Safe for delicate fabrics or bulky items
  • Greater capacity than most top-load models
  • Units can be arranged side-by-side or stacked atop each other
Top-Load
  • Offer good value, range of sizes, feature and prices
  • Units come in a range of capacities
  • Can only be arranged side-by-side

Additional Considerations

Important Considerations
Electrical

Confirm that electrical output is sufficient for the location of your new washer and dryer. You will need:

  • A grounded electrical outlet within 4' of the rear of both machines (no extension cord or adapter).
  • A separately designated 30 amp circuit

Set water heater to 120°F for washer.

Gas

Your home should have:

  • A CST internationally approved gas supply line
  • A shut-off valve
Disposal

Haul away is available for replacement product purchases. Unhook and move the unit you wish to be hauled away to an area from which it can be easily removed. Haul Away Details >

Installation

We offer installation options for major appliances that do not require a gas or water hookup, and are not a built-in unit. Eligible products will display the installation service during checkout. Installation Details >

Is Your Dryer Connection Gas or Electric?

There are two dryer types — gas and electric. Similar models look and perform the same, but differ in how they’re set up. Your decision between the two depends on where you will connect your new dryer:

  • Gas: needs an approved gas line with shut-off valve
  • Electric: needs a three-prong outlet with 30 amp circuit

Washer

High-Efficiency: save water, energy and the environment with High-Efficiency washers.
Water Level & Balance Sensors: innovative features for less maintenance and worry.

Dryer

Wrinkle Reduction Options: convenient options that help keep wrinkles out of clothes.

Pick a Color and Finish

Most models available in: black, white and stainless steel.

Washer Maintenance Guide

Because all clothes washers have the potential to accumulate some amount of mildew, bacteria and odor after a period of use, we recommend that you perform the following simple routine maintenance:

  • Always follow the instructions in the use and care guide for your washing machine.
  • Always leave the washer door or lid open between uses to help dry out the washer and prevent the buildup of odor-causing residue.
  • Promptly remove laundry after the wash cycle has completed to avoid odor and rusting of metal objects on garments. Wet fabric left in a closed space is particularly conducive to the development of odor.
  • Use only the amount of detergent recommended on the detergent container. If your washer is a high-efficiency machine, use only HE detergent, not regular detergent.
  • Choose the warmest wash water temperature that is safe for the fabrics you are washing. Use of warm or hot water washers sometimes (not exclusively cold water washes) does a better job of controlling the rate at which soils and detergent accumulate.
  • Regularly clean your washing machine. If specific cleaning instructions are not included in your use and care guide, it is a good practice to run an empty cycle (without laundry) once a month using hot water and liquid chlorine bleach or a commercially available washing machine cleaner, such as Affresh™ Washer Cleaner.

There are a number of factors that can contribute to the development of mildew, bacteria and odors in washing machines, including the following:

  • Not all of the water immediately evaporates after a load is complete.
  • Washing machines generally are kept in somewhat closed and damp environments, such as laundry rooms and basements.
  • The laundry that is put into washing machines has a wide variety of organic materials.
  • Modern high-efficiency washing machines use less water and are more tightly sealed when the door or lid is closed.
  • Modern high-efficiency washing machines are designed for use with specially formulated, low-sudsing high-efficiency ("HE") detergent. Regular detergent may cause excessive suds in high-efficiency machines, and excessive suds can leave a soap film that is conducive to the development of mildew, bacteria and odor.
  • Over time, laundry habits have changed, including the use of less bleach, more fabric softener and more frequent cold water washes. These habits may increase the rate at which detergent and soil residue builds up inside the washer, which in turn may result in undesirable odor.
