Whirlpool brings you the Cabrio® High-Efficiency Gas Dryer. This dryer features an 8.8 cu. Ft. capacity that will allow you to dry many clothes with just one load. It also has Advanced Moisture Sensing which continuously monitors heat and moisture levels to automatically end the cycle when clothes are perfectly dry, helping to prevent overdrying and damage to fabrics. Available at AppliancesConnection

Features:

8.8 Cu. Ft. Capacity
The 8.7 cu. ft. capacity dryer dries more than four baskets of laundry in one load.

Advanced Moisture Sensing
Advanced Moisture Sensing continuously monitors heat and moisture levels to automatically end the cycle when clothes are perfectly dry, helping to prevent overdrying and damage to fabrics.

Quad Baffles
Four shorter, 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.

Intuitive Touch Controls with Memory
Intuitive Touch Controls with Memory always ask the right questions. With easy "what" and "how" controls, they effortlessly help you create customized cycles. Plus, they even remember your last settings to save you time.

Estimated Time Remaining LED Display
Displays the estimated time remaining in the cycle, counting down until it is finished.

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.

Static Reduce Option
Reduces static by combining a spray of mist with tumbling after the load is dry.

Sanitize Cycle
Provides excellent care for your clothes while eliminating 99.9% of three common household bacteria without washing. Bacteria tested were K. pneumonia, stapylococcus aureus and P. aureginosa.

This Dryer is huge and I love how fast it gets hot. Although we have not had it long, I am very pleased. I think I have washed more load faster than I ever have. The lint catcher is also a great feature. This was an issue we had with our previous dryer.

Pros: Capacity, Ease of Use, Price

This is my fourth Whirlpool Cabrio purchase. I absolutely love the features, ease of operation, and efficiency of these washers and dryers. The 8.8 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Gas Steam Dryer With Advanced Moisture Sensing, Steam Refresh Cycle and Wrinkle Shield Plus Option With Steam, in Chrome Shadow is an oversized dryer that allows me to dry anything from a small or regular load (undergarments, t- shirts) to a large or extra large load (jeans, comforters, and quilts). The multiple features and options of this dryer make it an invaluable asset to my appliance collection. The only reason I`m on my fourth purchase is because I had to leave my other washer and dryer pairs with my previous homes as part of the real estate transaction. I wouldn`t buy another brand of washer or dryer!! Love them...

Pros: Dries clothing quickly and efficiently, several drying options, wrinkle free drying, steam refresh capability, dries oversized quilts and comforters easily.

Cons: The washer and dryer pair are large and do not quite fit in my odd shaped laundry room.

This was a great purchase.

Cons: The extra hose needed to connect the water supply should be included. It was easy to buy one, but why not go ahead and include.
