Whirlpool WED7500VW Gold Electronic Contol Dryer
(Eastlake, OH USA)
This is the worst clothes dryer I ever owned in my life. Even small loads seemed to take forever to dry. It was less than a year old when it began to go on by itself. I thought the smoke alarm was beeping. I had to unplug it to make it stop.
The off button did nothing. After the electronic control panel was replaced, the drum would stop turning and made a grinding noise. After that was fixed, the panel went crazy again. Then the drum stopped turning again and was grinding. It turned very sloppy and always made a thumping noise even when brand new. It was a pain in the a--. It often stopped before the cycle was complete and clothes were still wet. I hated it so much that I didn't want it fixed anymore. I never wanted to see it again and I replaced it with a GE which I love. BTW, I live alone and always had small loads and never overloaded. I kept both the filter screen and the exhaust pipe immaculately clean.
