The Whirlpool Resource Saver Dryer (WGD7300XW)

Rating: 3 out of 5
  • Currently 3.0/5.0

The Whirlpool Resource Saver Dryer bills itself as environment friendly, with an energy saving "Eco Normal dyer cycle" and an "Eco Monitor" with built in sensor that are supposed to help you control your energy usage. So being of a mind to help save the planet, I hardly blinked at the $979.00 price tag on the Resource Saver. But to my chagrin I found that what the "eco monitor" really means for the consumer is that if you let it have its own way, the dryer will leave your clothes slightly damp, but warm, which is why I have to opt to use its other assorted features if I actually want to dry my clothes.

The Whirlpool Resource Saver Dryer has a very sleek design, and its wide top provides the perfect place for my cats to curl up and take naps. It has nine automatic cycles or pre-sets for different "types" of clothes or different sized loads as well as timed drying in case you want to set the timer for the dryer yourself and run the risk of crisping the delicates. Some of the cycles include a quick dry cycle, a heavy duty cycle, a bulky items cycle (which actually seems to work on things like comforters and bathroom mats), as well as a casual cycle and a delicate cycle. It even has an "estimated time remaining" display which allows you to tell at a glance how much longer you have to wait.

In spite of its not-so-good eco- monitor, which is supposed to gauge dampness left and turn the dryer off the moment there is no moisture in the machine (it doesn't seem to be able to understand that there may be clothes in the middle which it is not registering) it does have a very large capacity (7.6 cubic feet). Also, in its favor, a very quiet machine. If the Whirlpool Resource Saver Dryer had just billed itself as a "large capacity excellent quality dryer" I wouldn't feel as if I had gotten ripped off by the hype of its being ecologically friendly.
