  The Whirlpool Duet WGD94HEAW is an extra-large gas dryer with enough space to dry several pairs of jeans at a time, a large comforter or other family-size loads. Features include moisture sensors that ends the drying cycle when the clothes are dry; specialized baffles for more balanced tumbling; a Quick Refresh setting that uses steam to remove odors and relax wrinkles; and a Wrinkle Shield option that tumbles the dryer without heat every five minutes for up to 40 minutes after the cycle ends, to prevent wrinkles. Whirlpool lists the 9-cycle WGD94HEAW as similar to an older model, the 8-cycle WGD94HEXW; in October 2012, both models were available through retailers.

What People Are Saying:

The Whirlpool Duet WGD94HEAW gas dryer is a relatively new model, and in October 2012 user reviews were not yet available online. Whirlpool lists this dryer as similar to the older model WGD94HEXW, which Consumer Reports rated excellent for capacity and very good for drying performance, convenience and noise levels. There were not many user reviews posted for the old model, but those CostHelper found were primarily positive.
