Cabrio Platinum High Efficiency Gas Dryer with Static Reduce Option

This dryer uses Advanced Moisture Sensing to automatically keep heat consistent and help prevent over drying and shrinking. Two steam dry cycles help you refresh clothes and relax wrinkles instead of rewashing. The Static Reduce option helps uses steam to reduce static in the dryer after the load is dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 good quality This is a great dryer.I haven't used the steam feature yet but I am very satisfied with the way it works so far. The clothes dry quickly and thoroughly. 2/21/13
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cabrio 8800 is Great We had a 20 year old top load washer that filled completely up with water. So when we got the new Whirlpool High Efficiency top loader it took a few loads to see how the new technology works. The LED Basket Light feature (only on the Cabrio 8800 series) is so cool because you can leave it on during the cycle and watch everything. I must admit that at first I was skeptical, but after watching 5 or 6 loads I am now confident that the new machine does a very good job and gets all our clothes clean. Since the HE machines use less water the clothes have to remain in contact with the agitator plate in order for the machine to work right. If the basket filled completely with water items would float up and no agitation would take place. The machine senses how much water is needed and I find that the water level is always about ¾ of the way to the top of the items in the basket. The Whirlpool Cabrio is pretty quiet, and makes different noises. Low volume sounds like gurgling, splashing, and whirling. There is also very little vibration and the machine remained stable even when I washed our king sized comforter. I am using liquid HE detergent and it dissolves well and leaves the clothes smelling fresh. Have also tried Oxi and fabric softener. The Whites cycle with Oxi worked really well on a large load or whites. Also the faster spin cycle does a great job of wringing out all the water. At the end of the cycle items are fairly dry. After 10 loads we have never found any soap residue on clothes. Best suggestion I can make is read your operators manual because they have lots of tips in there. For example, if your clothes are getting twisted up try reducing the soil level to help eliminate that problem. The lower the soil level the less agitation takes place. The biggest complaint we have is wish we had gone with white instead of the chrome shadow color because although it looks sleek the chrome shows dust & finger prints really bad. 2/10/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by I like the ease of entry into the door of this product when loading and unloading. This dryer is very easy to load. It has a notched out door - ergonomic solution - to easily load and unload clothing from the dryer. The height is excellent for an average height person to use without bending over too severely. The features are easy to use and the dryer bell is easy to hear. It is very attractive looking - nice change to my old style dryer. 9/24/12
