Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Excellent unit from Whirlpoot We have been using Whirlpool equipment for ever. This is another great unit that we bought a month ago and have been using it ever since. It is great specially the new feature which I had never seen before that is steaming the cloths so they don't wrinkle. Awesome. I would highly recommend to everybody.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Dryer! Bought this dryer to replace an old Maytag dryer left from the previous owner. I initially was going to try and troubleshoot the old Maytag dryer but I ultimately decided to replace it for a newer, more efficient dryer. The Maytag dryer was pretty solid so I decided to look for another Maytag and saw that Whirlpool and Maytag are part of the same company, so I felt comfortable knowing I'd get a dryer of similar quality. This dryer feel very hi-tech, it's spacious with plenty of room for my clothes, and it even lights up so you can see what's inside! There's a lot of options but it's fairly intuitive. Great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whirlpool Is Always My First Choice I have been using my Whirlpool WGD87HEDW for two weeks now. This is not long enough to provide a definitive review. However, I am very pleased with the function and options of this model. Whirlpool is a United States based company with manufacturing facilities in the USA which employ Americans. This fact coupled with my many years of using Whirlpool products makes Whirlpool my first choice when shopping for a new appliance. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use So far everything is working well with this dryer. I like that the controls are pretty easy to figure out w/out needing to read the manual.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far loving it! I replaced my old stacked unit that lasted about 10 years for this whirlpool. So far it's been a great experience. Most of the clothes come out perfectly dry... only I have noticed that some of my kids sweatpants don't try properly on the wasteband area.What I love the most is how quiet it is!!! Sometimes I even forget it's on!The light is extremely handy considering I used to forget clothes inside the old dryer..I have not used all the settings yet, but the ones I have used for sure do the job quite well.Once I get the check out that SteamRefresh function I will surely update this review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portal To Clean You know how nice it is to have clothes and towels warm from the dryer? Well now I do! After years of sharing commercial grade washers in apartment complex laundry rooms that left everything just a *tiny* bit damp and prone to musty smells, this dryer is like a dream come true. I could sit and watch it tumble clothes for hours and since it is installed in the kitchen, sometimes I do. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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
Evaluate Features
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.
Moisture-sensing Cycles: moisture-sensing technology monitors dryness levels for efficient drying.

Choose Your Accessories

Pedestals: Create an area for storage and raise the front-load washer and dryer for more convenient loading and unloading.
Cleaners: Keep your new washer fresh by removing residue and odor left behind by water and detergent using Affresh™ Washer Cleaner.

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.
