Help prevent damage caused by overdrying and spend less time in the laundry room with the Whirlpool® 8.8 cu. ft. high-efficiency gas steam dryer. This large capacity dryer features Advanced Moisture Sensing that senses the needs of each load and adapts drying times, so every load stops when clothes are perfectly dry. Four shorter, quad baffles bring more balanced tumbling results, even on small loads. And, it's a steam dryer with cycles that help reduce wrinkles and odors so clothes are refreshed without rewashing with the Steam Refresh cycle.

Great drier for the less than a week it worked. Now heading into over two weeks waiting for it to be repaired. Luckily I hadn't gotten rid of the old one and reinstalled it this weekend since we have no idea when the new one will be repaired.

Cabrio: Best Gas Dryer I've Ever Owned!

This Whirlpool Cabrio 8.8 cu. ft. High~Efficiency Gas Steam Dryer is a gift from on high! It's just the two of us, but I am full time caregiver for my dear mother, who is bedbound, and suffers from late stage dementia with incontinence. By now you have no doubt figured there is a lot of laundry, with heavy duty stains ~ so I am constantly laundering bedding and clothing. I bought the Cabrio washer~dryer set when Mom came home from a physical therapy hospitalization, and they hold up and perform superbly through several loads every day. Everything is clean and fluffy soft, and the steam feature on both machines does an amazing job! How a machine can do such a great job AND be high efficiency with use of utility resources of gas and electricity, is euphemistically beyond me. That's why I always buy Whirlpool. I've had whirlpool appliances for most of my many decades, so I know I can trust Whirlpool products to do their jobs, and them well. When I can find the time, I look forward to trying out the Alexa compatibility ~ if only I could teach Alexa/Echo to load the machines for me and fold the clean clothes! :-D Thank you, Whirlpool, for great products and interesting innovations! < 3
