Nice machine yet quite loud!

aaron jay 10/10/2017

So far so good; however i will say this is quite noisy! I had a bosch ventless that was manufactured 12-15 years earlier than this machine and it was nowhere near as loud. I am rather shocked at how loud this machine is. I would also alter the filter on lower part of machine as lint leakage is noted. Otherwise it works well and I am happy.

love ventless dryer

InitiallyBAM 8/12/2017

I have had this dryer for about 3 months and was concerned about other reviewers saying dryer broke soon after purchase. I like the dryer very much because it is ventless. My laundry room is up stairs and has no outside wall for a dryer vent, builders cut a hole in the floor of the laundry to just let the dryer vent tube hang down into the garage for the 10 to 12 feet venting lint and moisture into the garage, what a mess. Also most dryers do not have much on the back to hook and secure that vent, so it was always half on and half off spewing lint in the laundry and house as well as in the garage, so it looks like heavy dust everywhere. So the first thing with this dryer I noticed, was how clean and dust free the laundry room was and still is after 3 months. It takes a little longer but I never stay right there waiting for a load to get done. Also, I live in the humid south, so summer time if I left the dried load in the dryer overnight with the old dryers that the vent tube running down into the garage, the clothes were damp and wet from the humidity coming up the vent tube into the dryer. With this new whirlpool eventless dryer, if I can't get to the dried load until the next day and the clothes stay in the dryer overnight, there is no problem, Wonderful, the clothes are dry waiting for whenever I get to them. I love this dryer. I clean both filters every time. It has a signal to alert when the bottom filter needs cleaning, book says in about 4 or 5 loads but I do it every time, thought maybe less strain on the dryer. Inside filter just like alot of machines where the door opens and drum is, easy to open the filter and wipe lint out, but do be careful putting filter back in, it only goes one way and if you put it in the wrong way, it will break a flap. Some machines the filter could go in either way. The outside filter is not hard either. I pull it out ,I have a small brush, like a very small dust pan broom, and brush it off both sides , then middle.

Frustrating Year

Robert 8/10/2017

We bought this dryer a year ago. This dryer has underperformed consistently for the past year. We have had service out numerous times over the past year, but still highly dissatisfied. It takes over 3 hours to simply dry 4 bath towels. Whirlpool continues to send out service techs from a company called Danmark, but they have zero familiarity with this product. At what point do you replace my dryer? I purchased the extended warranty and will continue to call as this product doesn't do it's job.

needs more heat

steve 6/22/2017

I wish I could rant and rave about this dryer. Unfortunately, it does not stand out as an alternative to vented gas dryers. I was forced to purchase a ventless, electric dryer due to living circumstances. This machine fit the build. It's probably better than a condensation dryer, but I couldn't compare, since I have never owned one. Compared to vented gas dryer, it's night and day. Gas dryers will annihilate this dryer in a heat fight. Everything else about features of dryer seem fine. Haven't used any of them. Just wanted my clothes dry.

Stay away from this dryer

Dissatisfied 5/15/2017

I was excited about this ventless energy efficient dryer. Now I am only disappointed and extremely frustrated by how poorly the machine works and the lack of satisfactory redress by Whirlpool Customer Service. I get frequent F9 and E1 error messages during a single load of drying which require vacuuming the secondary filter each time. Lint also accumulates beyond the secondary filter inside the machine. Being inaccessible to me, this requires a service call for cleaning. The technician needs to take the machine almost completely apart, including removing the drum to access the area for cleaning.

Nice dryer

Nan 5/15/2017

Have had this dryer for 2 months now and am happy with it. Needed a ventless model and wanted a full size dryer so this fit those needs. It dries well and I have not had any problems thus far. On the negative side, I will note that it is somewhat noisy. Also the filters, particularly the hybrid care filter are flimsy and require careful handling.

Great Dryer

Barbara 5/11/2017

This is a great dryer for our basement. We are very happy with it. It's quiet and efficient. My only complaint is that the hybrid filter is a flimsy, cheap piece of foam. It is not going to last long and is a pain to clean. I would like to buy a couple spares but I cannot find the part.

My first month experience

TSA 4/20/2017

Overall, I am satisfied with the functionality and operation of the the Ventless Heat Pump Dryer but definitely see room for enhancements and improvements. Possibly, this is a common theme among all ventless dryers but there is a significant amount of dampness and humidity omitted from the dryer during normal operation. So much so that I ended up purchasing a portable air conditioner / dehumidifier to prevent mold from all the dampness. This is particularly true in our NW climate where we have a lot of rain and dampness in the winter. The other item where I would suggest changes is to have a different mechanism for lint capture. The existing system is cumbersome to clean and creates somewhat of a mess trying to get all of the trapped lint out of both filters. Other than these two issues, I am pleased with the quiet operation as well as drying ability of this make and model.

Low Energy Use / Not wasting heat to outside

It's Fine When It Actually Works

Sedona Art 3/22/2017

We bought it and had it installed in our new home in January. We began using it in February, and found almost immediately that it would halt and display the error message F1 E9. This occurs almost every time that we use it. Multiple attempts, with a power down, are then required to finally get it working. Our loads range from small to moderate and the majority are Low Heat mode. We now clean both lint filters prior to each run, but that makes no difference. We still have to jockey with almost every dryer load. When it works, it works as expected. Being a Heat Pump Dryer, it takes a bit longer to achieve the desired level of dryness, but that's not a real problem. We just need to have the Dryer work reliably.

Exceeded expectations

Steve H 2/20/2017

So far after two weeks this dryer has exceeded our expectations. We expected longer drying times and damp clothes. It's not happening. It's drying faster that our conventional dryer. Because our dryer vent runs up a wall and between ceiling and floor, this dry is a superb alternative to internal venting with wet floors and lent everywhere. Now our laundry room is dry and clean. My wife loves it.

Working Well

Mikey 2/13/2017

Due to the nature of my apartment, I couldn't use a non-Ventless dryer without heavy and costly renovations. This is my first ventless model and it's working like a charm. Though it takes twice the time as a normal vented dryer, that is a mild annoyance and my clothes are still dry and less damaged due to the lower temperature used to dry. It also is very big compared to other ventless models, so I can dry larger comforters and blankets. Definitely a worthwhile purchase if you need a ventless model.

Full Size Ventless Dryer

Barbara 1/11/2017

It works well for us in our basement laundry room. It eliminates the need for venting through the ceiling. It drys well. My only issue with it is the hybrid filter which is flimsy and looks like it will break easily. Also the actually filter is a thin piece of foam that resists cleaning. I hope it lasts.

I bought this dryer in Sept. The second time I used it I got error codes. Called customer service, they had a warranty service company come out, they took it for 2 weeks, brought it back, I used it and again same error codes. I called customer service, they came out, waited another 2 weeks for parts, they replaced the computer and another part, used it again, same error codes. Called customer service again, they are sending out a warranty service rep again. I've had the dryer since September, it has been looked at 3 times and still not working properly and hasn't since day one.

We have had this dryer in our new home for three weeks now. I've been very impressed with it's sensors and ability to stop the drying when the item was dry though the timer indicated otherwise. It has taken some trial and error to learn how to program for the best results. However, I am very pleased with the appliance.

LeParc SD 11/15/2016

I bought this and did have to wait a few weeks, due to back order but worth it. I live in an older condo building that does not have vents for laundry and we had this weird bucket that blew the hot moist air into it... Not a great option. The new dryer is modern, easy and puts out no extra heat in the room. I used to have an older condensation dryer and it worked, but you had to open a window because it got so hot and humid. Such a great invention and I'm very happy with my purchase.

useless piece of metal

2old4thismess 11/7/2016

On 9/28/16 I received delivery of my new Whirlpool dryer after a 28 day wait. Used it one time and it BROKE. The whirlpool repairman came out and had to order parts. The float and lint trap springs were broken. Waited another 15 days for parts and repairman to return. Fixed it-LOL. Used it a few more times then it broke again. All in all the repairman was here 3 times. The machine again BROKE with the same exact codes as the first go around-the float pump etc. Waiting now on repairman for 2nd opinion in order to have the useless piece of metal in my house replaced. I paid over a $1000.00 for this dryer, I would never in my wildest dreams expected this to happen. After going back and reading the reviews on the stores web site-there were other people with the same exact problem as me. Broken dryers that are brand new. That's Crazy right!

Disappointed!

Sarah 10/20/2016

I purchased this dryer because it was the only full sizes, electric, ventless dryer on the market that would meet my apartment specifications. No joke, 2 weeks after installation the dryer stopped working with (after googling) a very common error code. Turns out, Whirlpool skimped on some pump and many their dryers end up failing shortly after installation, just like my experience. Additionally, I wish i could turn off the chime that both wash and dryer play when its completed. I wish more brands were in the market for my needs so that I wouldn't have to be stuck taking a day off from work to wait for a repairman for cheap parts.

I take people to my basement to demo this dryer.....

Tara 10/19/2016

We've had this dryer for a month now and it has cut our electricity bills by 1/3 (did you know your electric dyer was a power-vampire?!) I can see it is using less than 1/2 of the electricity our older dryer used. It tells me when it needs more love (lint cleaning), it sings me a song when I press buttons, it dries my clothes perfectly. In the winter, it helps me heat my basement because none of the heat is lost to venting. I am beginning to wonder if I need a new hobby because I'm bringing friends down to the basement to show off the dryer. This thing is the best dryer you can buy. Oh yeah, did I mention that Whirlpool is donating appliances to schools so disadvantaged kids can have clean clothes and dignity, all while improving attendance ratings? Best money I've spent all year.
