  Although the 10-Cycle Whirlpool Duet WED94HEXW electric dryer was available from several retailers in October 2012, Whirlpool has replaced it with the newer 12-Cycle WED94HEAW.
The Whirlpool Duet WED94HEXW is an extra-large electric dryer with enough space to dry several pairs of jeans at a time, a large comforter or other family-size loads. The Quick Refresh setting uses steam to remove odors and relax wrinkles in up to 12 garments. The WrinkleShield feature tumbles dry clothes without heat every five minutes for up to two hours after the drying cycle ends.

Models: WED94HEXW (White), WED94HEXL (Lunar Silver), WED94HEXR (Cranberry)

What People Are Saying:

Consumer Reports rated the Whirlpool Duet WED94HEXW electric dryer excellent for capacity and very good for drying performance, convenience and noise levels. There are only a few user reviews online and they are almost all positive, although one reports interior tool marks that had to be sanded so they didn't snag clothes. Other user reviews praise this machine for being fast, drying large loads and producing nearly wrinkle-free clothes.
