Pros & Cons
Whirlpool Cabrio WED5600XW is an energy efficient and Eco-friendly Electric Dryer with 7.4 cu. ft. capacity. It has a unique Eco Monitor which lets you see how the cycles and options you choose will affect your overall energy savings. It is equipped with the AccuDryTM system enabled by 6th SenseTM technology and intuitive, built-in sensors that automatically measures moisture and temperature levels and stops the cycle to reduce overdrying. A 150-minute Wrinkle ShieldTM Plus option helps prevent wrinkles from setting in when you are busy with other important chores.
This Whirlpool Cabrio features a steam dry cycle to remove wrinkles from dry clothes. Users find this dryer to be quiet because it uses special insulation to help reduce sound and vibration while the laundry dries. Its large capacity cuts down the number of loads. It is also easy to program and comes with 8 automatic cycles including Timed Dry, Heavy Duty Delicate and Eco Normal drying options to handle a variety of fabrics. It has 5 temperature settings for more customized drying. A wide-opening hamper door allows you easy access, and even gives you room to fold clothes.
A few users complain that pre-determined settings often don't dry the clothes enough and extra time is needed for proper drying. A lot of users do not like the slanted top on this dryer because nothing can be stored on top and things keep rolling down and falling on floor.
Overall, Whirlpool Cabrio WED5600XW is an energy saving, Eco friendly dryer which can dry anything from hand-washables to heavy comforters. It cuts down on drying time giving you time to do other important and fun things. The price is reasonable for the value it provides.
