Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Comforter Gets Bunched Up

Submitted by Chilitogirl - 2/20/2017

This dryer is great, except when I put my comforter in to dry it always wads up in a ball. This doesn't allow the whole thing to dry if I don't open up the door and undo the blanket every fifteen minutes or so. Other than that, it's great

Awful experience and never again...

Submitted by CJ - 8/15/2016

I am sorry but this product is junk. I've had my Whirlpool washer and dryer for less than two years and both are junk, especially the dryer. The washer molds constantly where you put in the detergent and the dryer is an absolute mess. We've had issues with the dryer for several months. It first started with the steam not working and than the clothes would come out so hot that they'd literally burn your hand and of course the topping was that last night it decided to stop working altogether. Based on everything I've read, there's at least two different things wrong with the dryer that will now cost me more than half of what I paid to get fixed. Not to mention the Whirlpool approved repairmen for our area from the Whirlpool website has 2.7 stars with multiple comments on there about rude and unprofessional behavior. These were my first whirlpool purchases and I'll tell you that these will absolutely be my last and I want to share my experience with others so they don't make the same mistake.

Needed Services in less than 30 days

Submitted by Not impressed - 2/10/2016

The dryer stopped working within the first 30 days. I called for service and it took 8 days for a technician. He said it was a bad breaker and we would need an electrician. He was gone in 15 minutes and never pulled the unit away from the wall. We had an electrician test everything, the same day, on our new home and determined it wasn't the breaker. We called service again and they had called Whirlpool and knew what the problem was. It took 2 weeks to get the parts and another week before the technician could return. We had to go to a Laundromat the entire month of December. It is 45 days later and we are happy with the dryer, but hope nothing else goes wrong.

Musical Dryer

Submitted by Lee Street - 12/5/2015

We recently bought the pair (washer/dryer) of these and are very happy with the job they are doing. Fairly quiet, although they are in the basement, and chimes loud enough to let us know when load is finished. Energy efficient settings are nice, too. Hopefully these will be a lasting duo.

Submitted by Sports dad - 12/3/2015

We bought this dryer a couple months ago and have been very satisfied with the purchase. It has excellent features and dries out clothes faster than the old one! The only issue we have is, it is in a tight space that is heavily traveled and we often times bump into the buttons. But we are getting more used to that.

wrinkles - begone!

Submitted by Daria - 11/11/2015

We upgraded our dryer and this baby is a powerhouse! Very quiet, the steam is so versatile for those wrinkly shirts - and our linens are less wrinkly as well! Another feature is the towel cycle - our towels are super dry compared to our older dryer! While loaded with other features these two particular features by far have made all the difference.

I recently purchased the Whirlpool Duet Washer and Dryer. I can use them stacked or un-stacked. On the first day I washed and dried 4 loads that would have been 6 or 7 in my previous large stacked unit. I love the options on both units and they don't have any added on 'frills' that aren't needed. So happy with my purchases.

terrible dryer

Submitted by Melanie - 6/23/2015

This dryer broke within the first 6 months I had it. Repair people came out and fixed it, shortly after that started working funny again. Had to cycle loads twice to get things to dry. Called to get it fixed again and the customer service person told me to unplug it and plug it back in and to call back if it didn't fix the problem. Of course it didn't work. Called back to get service on it. The repair people went through two control boards, a control panel, heating element, additional switches, a harness and who knows what else. After 6 visits & 6 weeks of using a laundry mat and multiple calls to the tech line, it was finally deemed not repairable. Service contract people are only offering 75% of the cost and not even to pay shipping of a new dryer.

Excellent Dryer

Submitted by Laundry Guy - 5/30/2015

I replaced a 3 1/2 year old washing machine with the Whirlpool WFW97HEDC. I wanted the dryer to match, so I bought this dryer. I could not be happier. The last dryer used to wad two twin blankets into a ball, and then the tub would get out of balance and knock against the outer wall of the dryer. It scared my poor dogs (and me)! The Whirlpool dryer is absolutely perfect. The way the paddles are configured, every load over the last month has come out perfectly. Nothing wads up into a ball. The clothes smell so clean and they seem to be much fluffier and softer than the last dryer left them. I used to think a dryer was just a dryer, but the Whirlpool machine has made me realize that there are significant differences. I love all of the different cycles and I really like this machine.
