  Although the 10-Cycle Whirlpool Duet WGD94HEXW gas dryer is still available from several retailers in October 2012, Whirlpool has replaced it with the newer 12-Cycle WGD94HEAW.
The Whirlpool Duet WGD94HEXW 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. 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: WGD94HEXW (White), WGD94HEXL (Lunar Silver), WGD94HEXR (Cranberry)
