Intuitive Touch Controls with Memory

Intuitive Touch Controls with Memory always ask the right questions. Easy "what" and "how" controls effortlessly help you create customized care for any mess depending on load type, size and drying times. Plus, they even remember your last settings to save you time when drying those everyday favorites.

Image Feature

Advanced Moisture Sensing

Advanced Moisture Sensing uses three active built-in sensors to read incoming and outgoing air temperatures while continuously monitoring heat and moisture levels inside the dryer. This helps the cycle automatically end when clothes are perfectly dry and helps prevents damage caused by overdrying.

Image Feature

Wrinkle Shield Plus Option

The Wrinkle Shield Plus option helps keep wrinkles from setting into your clean clothes with intermittent tumbling after the dryer cycle ends.

Quad Baffles Four baffles tumble clothes in a randomized pattern, allowing items to open up more freely. This helps increase the effectiveness of the dryer for small loads and promote better, more balanced tumbling.

Estimated Time Remaining LED Display Always have an eye on how much time is left during any cycle with our estimated time remaining LED display. Part of our updated digital console, it illuminates your selected cycles, options and available choices, and lets you know when you can remove items from the dryer.

8.8 cu. ft. Capacity The 8.8 cu. ft. capacity dryer offers enough space to care for loads from the washer with ease. You'll even be able to dry bulky items like comforters and sleeping bags.

EcoBoost Option The EcoBoost option saves energy by using less heat and extending cycle time. You'll enjoy great drying performance while using less energy.

Sanitize Cycle The Sanitize cycle provides excellent care for your clothes in the dryer while eliminating 99.9% of common household bacteria.

Designed, Engineered and Assembled in the U.S.A. These dryers are built with American Pride and designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

dee 9/21/2017

It holds so very much, comforters, blankets,rugs etc. I love it. Love the settings.Non-wrinkled setting, so important to me. It fluffs the clothing intermittently, so that they don't get wrinkled. Many different heat settings. It's such a pleasure to have such control over the drying of my clothes. Saves me precious time on my Laundry Day. It has simplified my Laundry Day. Matches my décor. Adds elegance to my Laundry Room. It's a KEEPER!

Brandon 9/13/2017

So far so good. Bought as a replacement for our aging Admiral, and this is a major step up. 8.8cuft volume easily handles anything our washer can throw at it. The temperature sensor does it's job and dries effectively. The settings are intuitive and easy to use.

Holds a TON & gets it dry!

Cat 6/28/2017

I bought this to replace a LG dryer that needed 2 cycles to dry a normal size load & still didn't get it all dry. It took a bit to get used to the controls. You don't push hard at all. Just the lightest touch to turn on & start. The amount of clothes that this dries is fantastic! My new washer holds 2 1/2 times as much clothes as my old LG. Even with this many more items to dry, this Whirlpool dryer is up to this task! The capacity is SO huge that I almost have to climb in to get that last sock in the back. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase & have recommended this dryer to several friends already. A great purchase!!
