Whirlpool Buy More Save More Package Rebate

Offer Expires: 11/15/2018 to 11/28/2018 Must be postmarked by: 12/28/2018

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.

Gets load dry quickly!

Cindy 3/28/2017

I needed a gas dryer that would fit in my laundry room and was thrilled to find this one! Most of the newer dryers are much deeper and would have blocked the door into the garage. The fact that it was a Whirlpool was very reassuring. Every load I have done has dried much faster that expected.

TOO LOUD!

MK 3/1/2017

Dries fine. Motor is extremely loud. Wording around dial in shades of white and grey are difficult to read. Door does not feel solid, very light and the door latch seems cheap. Also does not always close the first try. Lint screen - difficult to remove lint, lint sticks

No, I do not recommend this product

Good design, works well

JB 9/23/2016

We bought this model to accommodate a smaller space and are happy with its simple controls and operation. It runs a little bit louder than our last dryer, but since its operation is efficient, it isn't on as long. We like that the lint trap is on the top.

Just what I expected it to be.

Crisco 9/16/2016

The only problem with this dryer is it is a little louder when running, compared to my previous Whirlpool Dryer. Will only buy Whirlpool products, as they last a long time with no problems. But I am sure that the cellar doesn't mind the slightly louder hum. LOL
