Definitely worth looking at for those in market for a new dryer

Comments about Whirlpool Duet 7.2 cu. ft. Electric Dryer:

Pros: Very spacious, Large opening, quiet, Lighted drum, Adjustable temperature, Wrinkle Shield in both Auto and Manual cycles, Control Lock, Drying Rack, Energy Savings, Convenient Features, Efficient, Reliable

Cons: Expensive, Not great with a large comforter, the drum can stain

Load Capacity
When I dry my king size fluffy comforter, I have to take it out at minimum twice and put it back in by exposing the areas that are still damp or wet. It takes about 2 hour for it to completely dry. I have no problem with any other loads. I think the problem is that it kind of flattens the one item/comforter so the hot air doesn't circulate inside it like it does with all other loads.

Performance
When I'm doing normal laundry, I always use the Auto Sensing feature. I can't believe how quickly my clothes are dry or how much electricity I'm saving. I use the manual cycles when I'm doing comforters, or dry cleaning my work clothes. I tried the automatic sensing with the comforters but when you dry heavy items, even setting the feature to heavy items, it cuts off and ends the time without drying it completely. The wrinkle free feature in both automatic and manual is a lifesaver when you can't get to the dryer as soon as it is done.

Ease of Use
You have lots of controls and features and it is very easy to pick what you need.

Durability
The dryer works fantastic. My only complain is that my drum seems to have discolored in one area to a light pink. My daughter has washed a red throw and dried it and we can not get rid of the stain no matter what we used.

Design
Everything about this dryer is great but There has to be a better way of drying heavy loads.

Good quality, long lasting.

Comments about Whirlpool Duet 7.2 cu. ft. Electric Dryer:

I have owned this dryer for eight years and have had not any problems whatsoever. It drys clothes a lot faster than conventional dryers. I also own the matching washing machine. They are so easy to maintain. They look as good as the day that I bought them.

Load Capacity
Love the load capacity on this dryer. It saves me a tremendous amount of time because I can dry more clothes in less loads. I can even dry my king size comforter.

Performance
You can either select an automatic drying level or a manual drying level. By selecting Normal, the auto cycle begins. You can also select a different automatic dryness level depending on your load by pressing More, Normal or Less. You can also use the manual cycle with allows you to set a specific amount of time. The "Wrinkle Shield" feature does a great job.

Ease of Use
Very easy to use. Controls are simple and well marked.

Durability
Easy to clean.

Design
Great design, looks great in my laundry room.

Can't imagine a better dryer! This Whirlpool dryer is great!

By 

from Layton, UT

Comments about Whirlpool Duet 7.2 cu. ft. Electric Dryer:

This Whirlpool Duet Electric Dryer has been SO great and one of my best purchases!  It saves me so much time!  The dryer has a large capacity -- fits so many clothes/towels!  It dries very fast!  Before we got this dryer, it took over an hour to dry our clothes!  Now it only takes 35 minutes!!  It has a lot of options in drying which makes it nice, especially for hand-wash items!  Its very quiet.  I have to set the alarm when it is done so I can hear that its done drying!!  I love how how it looks.  I have the Whirlpool drawers to go underneath the dryer and this is very convenient for detergents, etc.  I enjoy that I don't have to bend down to get clothes out of the dryer.  It is high up enough that I can easily remove clothes.  I like that its a front-loader because I'm able to use the top to fold the laundry.  However, this dryer doesn't have a steam cycle and its not Energy Star rated, so it might be costing me more in my power bills.  But, its worth it, because it saves me lots of time and stress!!

Fast Dryer

By 

from Ashville, OH

Comments about Whirlpool Duet 7.2 cu. ft. Electric Dryer:

This dryer is awesome.  It dries very large loads quite fast.  It is very quiet.  It has a lot of options and is very easy to use.  My only concern is that the door sometimes pops open and therefore the dryer shuts off.

Whirlpool WED945W Electric Dryer is astep above the rest

By 

from Menomonee Falls, WI

Comments about Whirlpool Duet 7.2 cu. ft. Electric Dryer:

The Whirlpool Wed945 electric dryer is just amazing.  There is no need to dry your clothes twice.  It dries fast, effectionately without wrinkles, which means saving money.  Who can not need to save every penny today with all the ridiculous prices on every day essentials like food.  This dryer is quiet too, and who could not use a little peace and quiet.

Whirlpool WED9450 Electric Dryer - Duet Sport

By 

from Roseville, CA

Comments about Whirlpool Duet 7.2 cu. ft. Electric Dryer:

Bought this at a Stupid Prices store, one of their floor models, for a great price, included the underneath storage drawer, purchased the extended warranty, performs so much better than our previous old dryer (which stopped working altogether).  Love the different choices of heat levels/times.  Buttons a bit stiff to push.  Overall, very happy with this purchase.

Fastest Dryer, Dries a Load in only 10 MINUTES!

By 

from Weaubleau, MO

Comments about Whirlpool Duet 7.2 cu. ft. Electric Dryer:

Whirlpool White Duet® 7.2 cu. ft. Electric Dryer - WED9450W is by far the fastest dryer that I have ever owned! This Whirlpool dryer will dry a load of clothes in only ten minutes! A BIG load, too. This Whirlpool dryer is a heavy-duty dryer, able to dry very bulky items, for example ; bedspreads, comforters, at least 3 sets of sheets at a time. Even the bulky doggie beds!

With this amazing new-tech Whirlpool dryer, it has the AccelerCare drying system, using the built-in scensors and computer intelligence to give you effecient drying. This dryer has the capacity to remind you that you have clothes in the dryer, & the end of the cycle signal lets you know when clothes are done drying!

This Whirlpool dryer is very "QUIET!" And, you can select the fabric cycle you wish to use- using high heat, of course,  for those favorite jeans and towels, or the gentle cycle for those pretty delicates;), even with an  "Ultra Delicate setting. One amazing and favorite feature is the ability to reduce wrinkles! Oh, and it has 5, count 'em, FIVE different heat settings!

Love it, love it! Thanks Whirlpool! I think you're still one of the best brands after all these years!

Fastest Dryer ever!

By 

from Soddy Daisy, TN

Comments about Whirlpool Duet 7.2 cu. ft. Electric Dryer:

This dryer will dry huge loads in less than 30 minutes on a normal setting. I dry a lot on low so it can take me 45 minutes some times to dry a load but still that's amazing. It's size allows for a lot of movement and air circulation so the clothes are just being rolled around but instead moved so that they aren't wrinkled when I get them out either. There are also some awesome settings like wrinkle guard. I don't use it because I procrastinate folding clothes but it's great for someone who might just need a few more minutes before getting the load out. The only draw back for me is the lint trap. It's really skinny so it's hard to get all the lint out. I'm talking so skinny fingers won't fit down in it. Other than that I love this dryer. Mine also came with this neat sweater rack that can be hooked up to the dryer. It like a grate that sits in the middle and your sweater lays on it while the basin spins around blowing air. I've use it a couple of times and it works pretty well. I usually wash a couple of sweaters at a time so it's not real convenient to dry them one at a time but if you're in a hurry and need a dry sweater it's worth it.
