Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

DRUM LEAKS

After the first use the inside drum started leaking,drip,drip,drip. Got worse with each use. Called Whirlpool to get it fixed and it's been good ever since.

Great Value! Made in USA

HVAC Tech Guy 6/20/2016

I don't know about most people, but the less bells and whistles the better. This machine has enoughdrying options for my needs, frankly how many do you need......or really use!! Great machine, made in U.S. ....not many things are these days. I would definately recommend, especially if you have a space issue (front to back). It is a flat back design, not many models are this way.

Great basic dryer

5/13/2016

We've had this dryer a month and it's working great. We wanted one that gets the job done and was economical. This one is just what we asked for.

Dependable

kas 11/24/2015

After more then 30 years our Whirlpool electric dry died. When shopping for a new dryer I was please to see that the current version of our old dryer was still being made. Same steel chassis, metal parts, etc. Of course there have been some nice improvements too. More temperature control, cool down cycle and a fun surprise, a light in the drum.

No large loads please

Lito 11/1/2015

I bought this a month ago and was expecting better from this brand. I place a large load for the longest drying time (80 minutes, Heavy Dry), the clothes are still damp at the end of the cycle. Forget about using the "automatic" mode, at the end of the cycle clothes are still wet...very disappointed with this product.

5 Star Dryer

Vida 10/26/2015

The 5.9 cu ft. top load Electric Dryer is an excellent buy. The machine is quiet and efficient in drying clothes. It even has a wonderful feature where if you do not unload your clothes immediately at the end of the drying time it will keep "fluffing" them by intermittently turning on and off in the "wrinkle shield" mode. This dryer is also an excellent match with the high efficiency washer model #:WTW4815EW1. I would highly recommend both models.

Bsassy 10/11/2015

I have only used the dryer once since it was installed, but so far - so good! I have limited space and the flat back design fit nicely. Only suggestion would be to offer flat back or smaller depth dryers with stainless steel drum.

Never knew doing laundry was this easy.

10/5/2015

We purchased these about a month ago and it has been one of the best washer and dryer ever. I can wash and dry in half the time as before. Easy settings , so many to choose from . Love it. Now I have more time for things I want to do .
