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

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. 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.

Whirlpool Dryer Review

Mark4956 7/12/2019

I have been using this dryer for almost a month. It is different than the previous dryer and will require a little getting use to. My dryer is a little louder than the previous one but not unbearable as mine is behind folding doors. So far I have no real complaints. It drys well in a reasonable amount of time. Disclaimer: I chose this dryer because it was the only one that would fit the space that was a brand I trust. It was more expensive than other dryers that were of larger capacity.

Whirlpool 5.9 cu. ft dryer

4 fatcats 5/31/2019

I like the large capacity drum it lends itself to making the efforts of doing bedding or large dry loads easier with a quicker dry time. I do wish there was a wrinkle release option without having to upgrade, for I found some items are still wadded in a ball that after drying time. I chose a basic model to avoid a lot of technology concerns during performance and to limit repairs. But I do like this dryer it fits with Whirlpool 3.8 cu. ft washer.

susanclaire 1/27/2019

I purchased this dryer and a washing machine as my Whirlpool made 40+ year old dryer and 33+ year old washer, while still functioning, needed to be replaced. Consequently I wanted to once again have Whirlpool appliances. I had a good idea of the features that I wanted and needed but I was dealing with space issues. Therefore I was limited in my selection of appliances. This dryer fit into the space and has the features that I need.

Good So Far

Fred Saver 1/9/2019

I bought this a few months ago. It was the only full size dryer I could find that would fit in the cramped little space, so I didn't have much choice. The "energy preferred" setting usually leaves things a little too damp for my liking, so go with the "more dry setting" It buzzes a few times before everything is finished, which seems a bit unnecessary.

This DRYER is made to do the job for a long time

marktalley7777 4/24/2018

After having used this dryer for four weeks, I must say that I am totally impressed by the job it does. I put the wet clothes in the dryer, close the dryer door, set the time, etc., and 20 minutes later my load of clothes (or whatever) is finished...completely dried and wrinkle-free. The steel drum in the dryer is what I'm so happy about. The drums found in most dryers being sold nowadays are made of aluminum...which is known to dent or easily lose its shape...But not mine. It's plenty sturdy. I gave it 5 stars.

Basic Clothes Dryer

Jim233 2/5/2018

This dryer replaced a GE Dryer that was in service for 18 years. I am hoping to get the same out of this one. The old dryer was a 5.7 cu.ft. The reason for buyer this dryer is its size. The smallest regular basic clothes dryer available. Even this dryer was 0.5 inches too big. When the door closes the door scraps the front of the dryer. Other then that the dryer works fine and does the job I bought it for.

Fast Drying Time!

12/14/2016

I bought this dryer a month ago because of the tight space that I had to work with in my home. It's the only dryer that has dimensions that fit! Even though it is plain looking, it has really high end features such as wrinkle prevention. I am impressed with this machine. It's a little loud but definitely worth the price.
