Stopped working after 1 month

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I bought this washer and dryer pair a month ago. First, they delivered the wrong washer. My husband had to miss an additional day of work to receive the correct deliver a few days later. Then, less than a month after we received this dryer it just stopped working. It just no longer turns on. Just completely dead. We called whirlpool and they said someone would come out today (tuesday) to repair the dryer. We had a 8am-4pm window. Then at 1:30, the tech called and said Whirlpool never notified them of the appointment and they could not come until Thursday. So not only is the product a lemon, but Whirlpool is unwilling or unable to help us resolve the issue.

Bought a matching set in June and the first dryer came without the drum spinning and now the second one lasted a month before it decided to give us problems. Since we've had the repair company out 4 times and the dryer is still not working properly. When will labor and parts be enough to consider our dryer a lemon?

like the way you have to dry

This dryer was purchased a month ago. The drying time is short, the capacity is huge, and the steam option delivers the clothes unwrinkled.
