Get to know this product.

Whether it's your favorite sweater or that perfect pair of jeans, you can keep all your clothes looking and fitting great with the Whirlpool® Cabrio® Platinum dryer. Advanced Moisture Sensing automatically stops the cycle when everything is perfectly dry, helping to prevent overdrying, while the Sanitize cycle eliminates 99% of three common household bacteria without washing. There's also an Enhanced Touch Up Steam cycle that uses steam to relax wrinkles and refresh clothes in as little as 20 minutes. This dryer makes sure you can dry any load from your Cabrio® Platinum top load washer with ease thanks to 7.6 cu. ft. of capacity. When paired together, you can save over $3,300 in lifetime energy costs thanks to the EcoBoost™ option with Eco Monitor.

Advanced Moisture Sensing System

  • Three built-in sensors read incoming air temperature and outgoing air temperature while monitoring moisture levels inside the dryer. This helps the drying cycle end when everything is perfectly dry, saving time and energy and helping to prevent overdrying.

7.6 Cu. Ft. Capacity

  • Featuring the industry's largest available capacity2, these dryer models offer a 7.6 cu. ft. capacity drum that adapts to both large and small loads.

EcoBoost™ Option With Eco Monitor

  • Saves energy by using a portion of the dryer’s dual heating elements and extending cycle time. You’ll get great drying performance while saving in energy costs3. You can even track the energy use of this eco-friendly option with the Eco Monitor. It allows you to see how the cycles and options you choose will affect your overall energy savings in both the washer and the dryer.

Enhanced Touch-Up Steam Cycle

  • Steam refreshes clothes in the dryer, helping to reduce wrinkles and odors. Clothes go from lying there to ready to wear without rewashing. An innovative Y-connector draws from your existing water line with no need to manually fill a reservoir.

Sanitize Cycle

  • Provides excellent care for your clothes while eliminating 99.9% of three common household bacteria without washing. Bacteria tested were K. pneumonia, staphylococcus aureus and P. aureginosa.
