Advanced Moisture Sensing

There are few things worse than opening up your dryer to laundry that isn't fully dried. Not only can an inefficient dryer waste time, but you'll notice higher energy costs as well. Dryers with Advanced Moisture Sensing have three sensors in the machine, tracking both in-going and out-going air temperature, plus the dampness of your laundry. These sensors communicate with each other to determine when your load is perfectly dry and ends the cycle.

Smart Cabrio® Takes Care of Your Clothes When You're Home or Away

Whirlpool brand introduces the new smart Cabrio® top load dryer that lets you take on laundry like never before. Whether at home or away, you can control the way you do laundry with help from a mobile app. From starting cycles and options remotely to downloading specialty cycles that care for clothes in just in the right way, it's so easy to connect to your home--and your family--no matter where the day takes you.

Quad Baffles

There are potentially many reasons for why your clothes aren't drying completely, but with Quad Baffles, you're taking a necessary step to make sure they are. Instead of the usual three baffles, the four shorter baffle design tumbles clothes randomly while making sure that items that start in the middle of the drum don't stay there. Overall a more thorough and balanced drying process.

Specialty and Customized Cycles

A machine will never have the delicate touch or know how to take care of your laundry...that is, until you dictate it at your will. You'll never feel tied to the Normal cycle again with specialty cycles. Released seasonally as free downloads through the mobile app, cycles for everything from delicates to heavy coats are designed to provide optimal care for each item. Plus, you can create and save your own unique cycle to dry exactly the way you want with the mobile app, and then download the cycle directly to your dryer using the Download & Go™ function.

Remote Control

Someone once sitting at the television thought, "why can't I manipulate this without approaching the device?" Now, you get to dry clothes your way and on your time, even when you're away from home. The mobile app allows you to remotely start and pause cycles, track cycle progress and energy usage, receive Clothes Dry notifications when loads finish and even activate the Wrinkle Shield™ option if you can't make it home in time to remove clothes from the dryer.

Laundry Alerts and Diagnostic Tool

On the outside, the dryer looks to be a simple machine. However, one little mishap and the dryer quits on you or performs below its standard. Now, you can dry clothes more efficiently with helpful Laundry Alerts, which let you know if there's a blocked vent or anything else affecting dryer performance. You'll also receive step-by-step instructions and how-to videos to help guide you through quick fixes. The Diagnostic Tool ensures that any other issues are correctly identified as the app sends data from the appliance directly to Whirlpool brand customer service for more efficient service calls.

Nest Learning Thermostat™ Integration

With large appliances, it's often hard to ensure you save energy. However, Whirlpool lets you enjoy the world around you worry-free. Whirlpool's Nest recognizes when you're away from home, and switches the dryer to Eco Mode to save energy with a longer, more energy-efficient cycle. You can also use Nest to automatically turn on the Wrinkle Shield™ option when you're not in the laundry room to keep clothes wrinkle-free. And, you can take advantage of the Rush Hour Rewards program to avoid running the dryer during peak energy usage hours in the summer. These energy-saving options are also available without the Nest Learning Thermostat™.

Tap Touch Controls with Memory

Your appliances are starting to catch up with your phones and tablets. With Tap Touch Controls you get a polished, intuitive interface where you can access every one of your machine's functions. It also remembers the settings you used last for ease and convenience. Sticky buttons are now a thing of the past.

Wrinkle Shield™ Plus Option

If you know you're going to be away from the dryer when you're cycle is complete, just activate the Wrinkle Shield™ Plus Option. The dryer will tumble your laundry every five minutes for up to 140 minutes, ensuring that your load leaves the dryer wrinkle free.
