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.

best dryer we have owned

jeffj1023 8/2/2019

our old dryer was not drying well at all and it took 2 or 3 rounds to get the clothes dry...and the auto dry never worked at all..it always left clothes damp...so we decided it was time to get a new one, if for nothing else but the power cost savings alone! we are very happy with our new one!! it drys in 1 cycle and the auto dry setting works well too! I would highly recommend this dryer.

Have to restart

Boston mom 7/24/2019

I was so hoping this dryer would live up to the positive reviews that I read but sadly I am very disappointed. I have dryed multiple loads of various sizes and even if it's only 2 or 3 pairs of Jean's or a few towels to a large normal size load. The items are damp after first run and sometimes need to be restarted 2-3 times. Which makes extra wear and extra money to operate this dryer. My over all experience with Lowe's, including customer service (which gets 1 ?) is turning out to be not good. I purchased this dryer based on all of its positive reviews. Very disappointed

Melda 454 7/17/2019

I bought this over a month ago. Great dryer with all the needed and most convenient features. I love the drop down door in front, since some of my clean laundry normally falls on the floor without this drop down door. Ease of use and convenience is of great importance to me. Whirlpool appliances are reliable and of better quality than some of the others. I also bought a refrigerator recently. Nothing but a Whirlpool would do for me.

Nee Dee Too 7/16/2019

Bought this about 2 months ago and now wish I had not waited so long to upgrade my dryer. Old one was about to burn down the house :-/ so started to research machines that offered what I wanted: Loud buzzer and a drop down door. (My wet clothes no longer end up on the floor!) This has it all and plenty of setting choices along with a large capacity. I'm very pleased and highly recommend this machine.

A perfect dryer for my needs!

JenniferVonAlmen 7/12/2019

I bought this dryer and matching washer about a month ago and am in love with my new appliances. Never have I had a dryer that prevents wrinkles so well while offering an amazingly quick drying time. The Auto Dry option is one of my favorite features - it senses when the laundry is dry to avoid over drying and overuse of electricity. How smart is that! I am a budget conscious shopper and am thrilled that Whirlpool offers this great product and the matching washer with so many new innovations at a reasonable price.

Good little machine for the price. I lost my job and old dryer died so I could afford to pay a lot for new one. I will only buy Whirlpool and this one is a great machine for the price. Don't need all the bells and whistles so this is perfect. Hope it lasts 20 years like my last one.

Basic Dependable Dryer with a few extra features.

LeFacteur 7/3/2019

I bought this a month ago and so far have had fairly good results. The exception being some of the heavier items (jeans) are still a little damp. I like the 3 temperature settings and option to turn off the "End of Cycle Signal'. Another really nice feature I did not have in my old dryer was a light inside the drum. Easy to set up and simple to use.

Similar features & controls to the Whirlpool/Kenmore dryers we have owned in the past. Excellent choice of drying cycles without excess complications that might potentially increase reliability issues. The downward opening door is a must-have option for us.

tkelly33913 6/27/2019

We bought the washer/Dryer set 2 months ago for our home in Florida. The units are quieter and faster then the previous Maytag set we had. We really like the non-agitator aspect of this washer. We were afraid it may affect the cleaning of load, but it works just fine and allows for bigger loads.
