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.

Useless dryer that doesn't even dry

Jatin 10/9/2017

Buyer Beware

NewYorkBlues 9/4/2017

After only a few months use, the dryer started to make a high-pitched whining noise and that would come and go. Have had a repair technician out twice (full-price charge each time), and still making the same noise. In addition, there is a huge design-flaw with this dryer. What the manufacturer fails to tell you is that not only do you need to clean the two-front lint filters, you must also periodically clean the lint from the back of the dryer. Periodically means often! So, to do this, you have to pull the dryer out of its location, and access the back panel, to remove the lint. If you don't, it takes things forever to dry! Oh, and the door to the front lint filter is made of cheap plastic and broke off within a month of having the machine. I'd wait until the design is improved, or try a different brand.

whirlpool doesn't stand behind it

john 6/20/2017

the filters on the dryer let coins and collar stays thru to the motor. motor wrecked. Whirlpool says "not covered by warranty." It's a major design flaw that lets change thru the air filter. Don't buy unless you either have no change, are PERFECT at emptying pockets, or you have a big reserve fund for repairs.

Very Pleased

PJ 6/14/2017

I bought this about three months ago. Very pleased with it. I had been using a regular dryer with an inside vent kit. This dryer does everything I hoped it would. Takes almost all of the moisture out, unlike the prior vent kit. Still produces a little heat but 100% better than regular dryer. Clothes feel softer. Takes longer to dry the clothes but worth it.

Fluffed cloths

Dryer person 5/24/2017

Like however it does make room a tad warmer and the filter when you clean it is easy to get turned around/ maybe the word front on it would help.But over all drys fast and need less Downey in washer for the fluffy aspect. Guess I'll see if the power bill is less.

Truely ventless, dries well

New House Owner 5/15/2017

We bought this dryer because it was the only one we could find that did not require some kind of an exhaust vent through one our well insulated exterior walls. Previous review mentioned noise and this dryer is noisy. In addition to the expected tumbling sounds of the clothes in drum, there is whine, not exactly high pitched but certainly additional. I assume it is the heat pump, but I feel it could have been reduced but probably not entirely eliminated. Be aware there is more screen cleaning with this dryer than others but it is not that much of a bother. One does have to take care as the screen seem delicate.

Stay at home Pat 4/13/2017

I have had this ventless heat pump dryer for about one month. The reviews when I bought it were not that great but I needed a ventless dryer so I bought it. I could not be more happier than I am. I have washed everything from bedsheets, towels, matress covers bulky clothes, delicates and everything in between. They all come out completely dried. Very little wrinkles! Easy to clean filters and a joy to operate the dryer. Thank you Whirlpool because of this dryer we are able to stay in our home of 47 years.

I love this dryer

Anne 3/27/2017

I love this dryer. We built a passive home and we were excited about getting this condensing dryer with a heat pump rather than a more standard European condensing dryer. We haven't had any issues with it and I love the energy efficiency of the dryer. I always use the energy efficient setting; it take a little longer to dry but I don't mind that.

A LEMON -- It just does not work (E1 F9)

Disappointed 1/24/2017

We keep getting the error code E1 F9 and the machine stops. Repair technicians have been out 5 times to replace: - motherboard - user interface screen - pump - float switch I have had the entire machine torn apart and spread out in the laundry room and hallway 3 times. It works for 2-3 loads after they leave and then we get the same error code. We now can only use this on Timed Dry...and even then it only works 2 out of 3 times. Bottom line is this: unproven technology that was rushed to market without proper testing and quality control. We have always had Whirlpool products in our laundry (love the load and go washer) but this is a huge disappointment. Going to call for service (again) and have to stay home from work (again.) What I really want is the equivalent VENTED dryer and a refund for the price difference. Oh yeah...and since I bought a 3rd party extended warranty plan for $150...I would like that refunded as well. But...the call center agents do not seem to be able to make that happen. I would not recommend this product to my worst enemy. Thanks. Model # WED9290FW0 Serial Number M610001102

Our First Ventless

High Rise Happy 1/11/2017

We've recently moved into a high rise condo. The building requires ventless dryers if the unit owners want to install their own and we complied. We were warned drying time would be long, but the convenience of having the dryer in our unit is worth the longer cycles. And the quality of the "dry" for each type of load is exceptional. We purchased the dryer in combination with a washer and could not be happier.

Don't know what all the complaints are about

Kittie_inFL 12/12/2016

I have had the previous model # of this Dryer more than a year and I couldn't be happier. It makes a different noise than a traditional Dryer but not necessarily louder. It also takes a bit longer to dry, but the literature was very up front about that. Idk how a new Dryer could arrive non-functioning as others have complained about, but that seems to me like a problem with where they purchased it from. I have bought appliances from different stores and anytime I had an issue within the first 30 days my store made it right. I've also never had these described issues with whirlpool whether I was in or out of warranty and I always buy whirlpool for all appliances in the house...maybe it's a regional thing?!? I just wanted to weigh in and say maybe it's not the Dryer or manufacturers fault, just the poor handling from the sales and repair companies they had to deal with.

My clothes dry faster hanging on a line!

Wearing Damp Underwear 11/28/2016

We bought this dryer 9 months ago after a dryer fire. We have tried to be patient and learn new laundry habits but we are completely over this dryer. As I type this, my dryer has been running for 3 -1/2 hours on the same load. Average drying time is probably about 4 hours. Towels take more like 6-8. It is noisy and makes our laundry room very hot. I really regret buying this machine.

ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE!!!!

Jen with wet clothes 11/18/2016

This is the worst machine and the biggest waste of money (and a lot of it) that I have ever spent! Please spare yourself the absolute nightmare that I have experienced with this machine - DO NOT BUY A WHIRLPOOL VENTLESS DRYER! The machine did not work the first time we used it and the lint door was broken. The first repairman told me that I needed to purchase a pedestal so the hose didn't bunch and said that the pedestal would correct the error codes and he supposedly ordered a new vent door. After spending another $250 on a pedestal that did not come with the proper screws, the dryer continued to have error messages and did not function. Another repairman came to try to fix it and indicated that the dryer needed a new part and said he did not have the part but would expedite the repair. That still has not happened! I received a nonfunctioning dryer and demanded a new replacement. I paid for a brand new dryer. I did not pay for a refurbished dryer which is essentially what Whirlpool indicates I am entitled to. Charge full price for a new dryer, deliver a broken dryer, and then claim that the customer is not entitled to a new replacement dryer, but rather a repaired dryer. In other words, a refurbished dryer. A warranty should be protective if a new and functioning machine breaks during the warranty period, not used to allow a broken machine to be sold and then fixed after the consumer reports it as broken. This fiasco has lasted 3.5 months so far and I still do not have a functioning dryer. Did I mention - DO NOT BUY!

useless

broken hearted 11/8/2016

I purchased this dryer 9/1/16 & had to wait 28 days for it to arrive. I was like a kid at Christmas waiting for the day to come & finally it was here. After just one (1) use the dryer broke! You can imagine my surprise and deep disappointment. Whirlpool did send a repairman out in good time however, I had to wait another 15 days for the replacement parts to arrive, Once it was repaired it worked for about 4-5 more uses and broke again. In total 3x's the repairman has made repairs-only to have it break again. I am now waiting for another repairman for repair #4. Keeping in mind I paid well over a $1000.00 for this dryer and have only had it in my home for about 40 days-only to spend more time not being able to use it VS using it. I will say that the few times I was able to use the Whirlpool Ventless Dryer I did like the results it produced. This is my first time ever purchasing a Whirlpool product.

Love the concept

Jersey Girl 10/16/2016

After a druling delivery and set up process, I find that I really love my ventless dryer. It is quiet and efficient. Yes it takes longer to dry clothes but it senses the wetness and that eliminates the guesswork. The reason I gave it 4 stars is the flimsiness of the cleaning vents. Both vents have mesh that should be more sturdily attached to the plastic framework. Already I have loosened some mesh from the frame even though I read reviews about it. Also instructions suggest cleaning the rear vent which I can do but can't see that most people could. So whirlpool engineers, get working and correct these problems before your competitors do it!!

Fast fully featured dryer

Coop 8/22/2016

I don't normally feel compelled to write reviews but this dryer has surpassed my expectations. I was rather unhappy to find that the new house we bought had no dryer vent (the inspector should have mentioned it!) and we never noticed because who looks behind a washer and dryer! The previous owners were running a long hose out into the garage and out the garage door. Buying this dryer was cheaper than cutting through walls to put in a vent. What I wasn't expecting is for this to do a faster and better job than my < 3 yr old top-end Samsung. I assumed it would take much longer to dry, not faster. I really appreciate the ability to choose the balance between eco and fast and also having the drum well lit it great so you don't miss that tiny sock in the back :). Also the primary lint filter is a much better design than any of the prior 4 dryers I have owned. Most importantly I suppose - it hasnt shrunk anything yet! If I have 1 complaint is that the cover to the secondary filter is flimsy plastic that takes some effort to close properly - seems like an afterthought - but that would be my only design change. The actual secondary filter is great, just the cover is poor (I might just remove it and leave it off).

Disappointing quality

Whirlpool fan 5/19/2016

We were really looking forward to our high efficiency dryer. After waiting 5 weeks (they told us 4 weeks, and it ended up being a week late) it finally arrived, it was installed, and ... it didn't work! The repair person spent 2 hours troubleshooting and ended up *guessing* that the problem was the motor and solenoid. We're now waiting for parts (which could take another week!). We've been really happy with our two previous sets of Duets. This has been tremendously disappointing.
