Comment:
The dryer did not last over 2 years. With a price tag of around $800, it should last years! I would not trust Whirlpool again. All I got from customer service is sorry -- and we try hard to make good products.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
