Introduction

Let's be clear up front: the Whirlpool Cabrio WED8800YW is a very expensive dryer. For an MSRP of $1199, this appliance gives you expansive preset cycle options, steam cycles for those with access to a water hose, and capacity that runs on the large end of models available today. That high price tag also comes with inaccurate estimated times, sporadic drying quality, and an exterior that's very vulnerable to scratching and smudging. Compared to appliances that don't cost much, offer few features, and look cheap, this Whirlpool Cabrio is very high-end, but in reality, the finished product - timely work and dry laundry - isn't at all guaranteed. If you can find it on sale - which we did, for almost as low as $835 - it may make this heavily equipped dryer a better bargain.
