Whirlpool Duet® Steam Electric Dryer WED9600TA

by Jemmer Pablo
(San Jose CA)

My Duet® Steam Electric Dryer WED9600TA is the same as any model of any dryer should function what they are made off: to dry clothes. The only difference is that my dryer is more efficient than the rest others as it works less therefore less work on fabric. The capacity is big and the cost savings gives me both in terms of time and money.

In the old days, I used to have a gas dryer but now that I have my Duet® Steam Electric Dryer
WED9600TA, everything seems to be more comfortable and safer to use.

Maintenance is easy as it has a function to catch all extra fibers or dirt from the clothes and sweep it on a detachable box and voila, the inside is clean all the time. The finish is also easy to wipe with just a soft cloth and again, you have a shining machine at any time which looks like brand new.

I also like it very much as it works silently unlike other dryers which shakes the whole house when it works, The wrinkle protection system also keep my clothes easy to iron with some not needing ironing at all. There is also a drum light where I can see my clothes spinning which makes my cat follow sometimes with its head rolling as the contents of the dryer rolls

Can fit King size comforters
by: Anonymous

I love this dryer because it's a front loader on the pedestal, so I don't have to reach down to get my clothes in and out. It's easier to open and get in and out of it.

My dryer comes with a steam refresher option which I use when my permanent press clothes get wrinkled and I just want to freshen up my dry clean clothes.

I have 3 sons and a husband who works with asphalt, so my dryer takes a lot of beatings. The dryer has never had any problems and manages to dry even the thickest work pants with no problems. I can also fit King size comforters in the dryer, which I love.

One of the cons is the "heavy duty" cycle sounds like it should dry faster but it seems to take twice as long to dry. I don't know if the manual timer works, I've seen it say 12 minutes for more than 3 minutes at a time, so I just use the automated settings rather than to manually set the time.

Another con is that the dryer lint screen needs to be cleaned out after each load since it's a smaller area than the traditional dryers.

My wonderful machine
by: Jemmer

I bought my Whirlpool WED9600 3 years ago and I am so happy with it. Until no, every time I dry my clothes I already know in a small amount of time, I could be wearing my newly washed clothes again. The good thin is that the wrinkles and odors just simply goes away what with the infusion of it's natural steam on the clothes ready to dewrinkle and refresh every time you push a one touch button. It even has two cycles to choose from which is enhanced touch-up and quick refresh.

The features include damp dry cycle, accelercare drying system, bulk item cycle, steam care cycles, adjustable end-of-cycle signal, wrinkle shield feature in 140 minutes, 5 drying temperatures, quite dry plus noise reduction system, easy view dryer door windows, interior drum light, 4-way venting, audio feedback, instructional controls, optional laundry tower, electronic control. reversible side-swing door, optional storage pedestals, front-mounted lint screen and others.

The estimated capacity total is about 7.5 cu. ft and it is finished with porcelain/ paint (DD). The material used for its drum is powder coat. It's got a 1/3 horse power motor and an AccuDry for its moisture sensor.

The total dimension is about 38 inches

I bought this wonderful machine for about a fifteen hundred dollars and it came with free delivery as an added value during one of the promotion period in an online shopping site. It was also delivered very fast as it was delivered to my door the following day although their warehouse is not that far from where I live. The delivery people were also very nice and professional specially the way, they installed the equipment.

There was a little bit problem a year ago since it won't start and I then immediately called their customer service. To my surprise, the person who answered my call was very polite and scheduled a technician to come right away. It wasn't long when early that night, their tech guy came over to fix it and I was quite ashamed as the plug was just loose and all he did was plug it properly. I guess the tech guy was happy as he went home early and got an overtime pay for it for simply plugging a customer's drying machine.
