Whirlpool WGD96HEAW Reviews & Ratings

WGD96HEAW Duet 7.4 cu. ft. Gas Dryer With Tap Touch Controls, 5 Temperature Settings, Heavy Duty Cycle, Y-Connector, Normal Cycle, LED Display, and Reversible Door in White is rated 4.8261 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love It! I have been wanting a new washer and dryer for a few years now so when my dryer stopped working I was so excited because now I could get a new one. I researched many and priced them and decided on this one because of reviews and price. It wasn't the cheapest or the most expensive. I love how it dries so quickly so much faster than my old one. I ordered the set online and didn't see them in person so I was shocked at how big they are. I have a relatively small laundry room they take up a good portion of it. I wasn't sure at first if I was going to like the size but I have had them for about a month and I have gotten used to their size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice hi-tech design, easy to use I am still getting used to the new dryer but am really missing a feature on my old dryer called Sensor dry. This new dryer is supposed to have three sensors yet when the cycle ends the clothes are still slightly damp so they sit in the bottom of the dryer and get wrinkled. Maybe I am operating it wrong? There doesn't seem to be an adjustment to the pre-sets to add minutes or make the dryer warmer to avoid this. You can use the time dry and then the time and controls are adjustable of course but then you end up running the dryer longer than you might need, thus wasting energy and overdrying is not good for your clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Mashine This dryer is part of set I bought that replaced 10 year old duet set. It is easy to use, has plenty or features and does a great job drying the clothes of family of 4. I have this machine stacked on top of the washer. It is on the second floor and even with both machines on you can barely hear them when they are one. There is practically no vibration even with the largest loads. I am very impressed with the advancements that went into theses machines since the first duets the we had for the past 10 years. We are very happy with our new machines and hope they will last as long as the two others did

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product -- would definitely buy it again We bought this for a new house because our old Duet washer and drier stayed with the old house. We loved our old ones, and we like the new ones even more. The washer capacity is very large. You can put just about anything in it, and it will actually get clean. For example, we have washed sleeping bags, which you generally can't do in a top-loader. This model has a faster spin, yet is much quieter than our older model. I like the detergent dispenser. You fill it up once every 10-12 loads and it automatically dispenses the appropriate amount of detergent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On a scale of one to ten, this product is a solid ten. The machines look sleek, modern and technologically correct. They are apparently so ubiquitous that our housekeeper needed no instructions. She told us that several of her other clients already have the same or similar models. In fact, she taught us how to work them (It's actually quite simple, the controls are clearly labelled as to what is their function). The machine noise level is exceedingly low. About the only thing I can hear from the room adjacent to our laundry area, is the pleasant tinkling sound when one of the bells rings to give a signal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful appliance with great promise! I really enjoy the light in the drum and think this is a quality machine. Unfortunately, I don't think I know how to use it correctly. Clothes often come out with damp areas even though the dryer supposedly has a moisture sensor that senses when the clothes are dry. Also, although it has a refreshing cycle that can either be steam or dry, clothes come out much more wrinkled than the 15 year old dryer it replaced. The controls provide lots of options, but they don't remember the ones used most frequently so I have to set my preferences each time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, my clothes aren't wrinkled! Our new dryer has been such a great change from the dryer we replaced. The clothes are dryed in less time, with no color loss, and little to no wrinkles. All the drying level choses helps with how much time is needed for each item. The dryer is so quite we forget it is running. The attractive design, like the matching washer, looks great in our very used, traffic ridden utility room at our back door. I never thought that my washer & dryer would be quite and attractive accessories in my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Features and Room Owned the washer and dryer for about 3 months now. So far everything is great. Love how quickly it drys things, and with the steam setting, I haven't used a dryer sheet since I began using this. Very efficient, clothing comes out soft and fresh smelling. Every once in a while, I get a load where almost everything is dry, but a few things are damp in spots. Probably due to mixing clothing types. Redrying those few items is very quick though.
