  The Whirlpool Duet WED9151YW is a relatively large electric dryer that should handle most family-size loads. It has nine drying cycles, a sensor system that automatically stops the machine when the load is dry, and a wrinkle-prevention setting that tumbles the dried load intermittently to stop wrinkles setting in after the drying cycle is completed.

What People Are Saying:

Consumer Reports estimates that the Whirlpool Duet WED9151YW electric dryer will perform similarly to the WED9371YW,which it rated excellent for drying performance, very good for capacity and only good (a somewhat mediocre rating) for ease of use. There are few online user reviews for this machine, but those that CostHelper found are positive. However, the matching washer Whirlpool WFW9151YW has received primarily negative reviews, with many complaints about ongoing repair problems.
