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.

Ran for less than a week

Submitted by Todd - 10/8/2017

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!

Submitted by Celestial Cat - 10/4/2017

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

Disappointed

Submitted by Mario - 9/9/2017

First dryer delivered - drum didn't turn so it was replaced with a second dryer. Now 2 months later the second dryer won't heat up to dry. 2 service visits and still now usable dryer. We're going on about a month of use from a 2 month old dryer. We have 3 children and 2 adults with a mountain of laundry to do with nothing but empty promises. Whirlpool should've ashamed. Only thing promised from customer service is expedited parts but no dry clothes. Horrible customer service. Buyer beware!!!

Loving my new washer and dryer

Submitted by E.Veruto - 7/31/2017

I bought this item a few weeks ago, I was nervous at first as it was our first big purchase for our new home. I have a 4 year old, very active, ice hockey playing, sweaty boy and a 6ft tall husband whose clothing is very large. It used to take me several loads with our last washer and dryer but I can now fit so much more clothing and be done faster. It's a large machine yet extremely gentle on my clothing as well. I am incredibly happy with my purchase!! Only "complaint" is that my 5ft self struggles to reach all the clothing at the bottom but that's normal in my world.

Burns Clothes

Submitted by DW - 7/26/2017

Dryer came with our new house one week ago. My wife was very excitedifficult due to the features, but dryer began burning clothes on second day of use. Use of either of the top two Temps results in melting/scorching, and vent grill is now covered in a layer of melted fabric. On high heat, top of dryer becomes hot enough to burn skin. Cannot recommend this product.

Perfection

Submitted by Will - 7/18/2017

After countless online reviews looking for the features and quality i needed, I decided upon my current 8500 whirlpool dryer. This dryer is huge in a good way. It can hold tons of laundry that can be completed in 1 load versus multiple. The steam feature is awesome leaving clothes fresh and clean. Finally , this dryer is dead silent . Sometime I have to look at it just to see if it's on since I can't hear it operating . Overall, I'm very impressed with whirlpools latest dryer and can't wait for another whirlpool appliance hopefully a washer .

Awesome features/terrible performance

Submitted by A Hernandez - 7/12/2017

The machine Is beautiful. It's features are wonderful. We love the "touch-up" feature. Within 2 days of receiving the machine it displayed an error code and dI'd not work. We had 2 different technicians come and provide 2 different diagnosis. We were without a dryer for approximately 2 months. The dryer has worked fine for approximately 2 months and again stopped working. A technician will be out next week. We have a large family and being without a dryer is difficult. We'version always been satisfied with Whirlpool products but have been extremely dissatisfied and frustrated this dryer.

Still under review

Submitted by Jamz - 7/11/2017

We bought our "set" 4 months ago and so far it has melted two blankets (the steam clean or sanitize setting is way too HOT and burns the delicate soft blankets) The ETI Board has already failed and had to be replaced prompting us to purchase an extended warranty. Dry times seem average, and the dryer does adjust dry time as the dryer senses the load is dry. All and all even with the problems I am adjusting to the new cycles and dry times and I am happy with our purchase ....providing NOTHING else goes wrong. Review to be continued at one year of ownership.
