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.

Great dryer

Pdre 6/20/2019

I purchased this Dryer June 1st and I absolutely love it. Installation was simple and easy. What I like about it the most is the Auto Dry Drying system. When your clothes or sheets are in the dryer, the Auto Dry system will accurately heat at the right temperature to dry whatever it is you have in the dryer. I also love the Wrinkle Shield feature. It fluffs the load to help keep wrinkles from forming when your unable to remove a load from the dryer as soon as it stops. Lastly, the lint screen is easy to access and clean. All you have to do is pull the lint screen from the top right corner of the dryer and slide it back in when it's cleaned. You have to use a temperature setting button to set the temperature and a cycle signal button to push start/signal when the cycle ends. I love that the dryer door folds out like a oven. Dryer is large enough inside to dry big quilts and blankets you may have. I really love this dryer. Must buy. Quiet operation as well. Love the drum light inside the dryer so you can see.

Excellent drying capability.

Ron27 3/13/2019

Dries extremely well. Dial choices not specific enough. (Example: permanent press, jeans, ). Would like a guideline to determine length of timed heating. (Example: "cotton- prevent shrinking, 18 minutes"). Like the pull-down center door.

CathyG55 3/13/2019

I bought the whirlpool because I have had good luck with this brand for forty years. Great machine. I especially bought it for the pull down door. I love using this door to put clothes in and out of the dryer. Nothing ever ends up on the floor.

I like this dryer because it has the pull down door which makes it easier to load clothes from my washer. Works perfect for me, even easy to use door when folding the clothes. Nothing falls on the floor because I pull the clothes from the dryer to door.. Works wonderful for me.

Drying takes forever.

Dewey D 2/18/2019

I bought this a month ago and I am very dissatisfied with this product. It takes forever to dry our clothes. Many times I am taking only half the clothes from the washer to make the dryer load smaller hoping it will help to dry those clothes faster. I always have to do two drying cycles for my clothes to get the clothes somewhat dry. Will never buy this product again.

Whirlpool Gets the Job Done!

Amy W. 2/11/2019

Great efficient dryer, easy to use for my family. My Husband and I find it more manageable to dry everything! Our teenagers love the large capacity to dry their comforters quickly, with our large family (18, 17, 12, 11 year olds) we can get back to family fun instead of waiting for clothes to take forever to dry.

Dryer Review

AliIM 1/18/2019

We bought this a month ago. Solid dryer. Clothes come out great - wrinkle free, cooled down. The only thing I would change would be the loudness of the 'cycle end' noise - could be a little quieter - and the knobs seem a little flimsy.
