  The Whirlpool Duet WGD9151YW is a relatively large gas 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 the Whirlpool Duet WGD9151YW will perform similarly to the WGD9371YW, which it rated as excellent for drying performance, very good for capacity and convenience and good (a somewhat mediocre rating) for noise. 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.
