This dryer is Fantastic! It holds a ton and does a great job of evenly drying items without static or wrinkles! Display and controls are easy to navigate and use! Lint trap is very accessible and easily cleaned. Anti wrinkle mode and steam refresh do an outstanding job!

We had previously owned the Duet line of washers and dryers. After 15 years we felt the quality of Whirlpool was such that we looked no further. My wife loves the steam dryer setting and tells methe dryer was worth every penny just for that setting.

This is the 2nd whirlpool I've had and it is absolutely fantastic. The steam function saves so much time when you just need a quick de-wrinkle.
