Comment:
We have owned washers and dryers for 30 years. The Whirlpool Cabriole is the worst. It takes approximately 3 hours to dry a load of bath towels. The automatic timer is useless. I think an old-fashioned outdoor clothesline would be a better choice. We are contacting the retail store where we purchased it to see if they will accept a return. We have never returned a washer or dryer in 30 years. By the way, the washer is terrible too!
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I purchased this dryer as a unit with the washer. I am very disappointed with the performance on a machine that I spent more money on with the promise that it was better than the others. I have to use at least 2 cycles on More dry for them to get completly dry. All my clothes come out wrinkled even wrinkle resistant clothes. I am actually having to iron my clothes now when I did not have to with my old set. I am at the point I am ready to discard it and take the loss to get another washer and dryer
