Conclusion: Simply put, with this dryer you’ll have a strong selection of cycles, extra features and adequate drying. It doesn’t bring any top-quality style, but it looks nice. The controls use blue indicator lights that pop, making this dryer easy to read. We’ve tested other machines (some of which have better features and are more expensive), but if you’re not willing to spend a fortune on a new dryer, then you should have this Whirlpool dryer in your laundry room.
