One of the newest Duet dryers with lots of perks and a shiny finish. The drying performance? Not so shiny.

Introduction

Whirlpool recently launched several new products in the laundry category, one of which was the Whirlpool Duet WED94HEAW. This brand new dryer, which retails for $1299, is certainly an expensive new endeavor on the part of the manufacturer. It certainly looks worth it: we were very excited to see the shiny white finish with stainless trim, fresh out of the box and ready for testing. However, the actual drying performance proved to be somewhat lackluster; it doesn't really shine over anything else in its price range (or under its price range, for that matter) that we've tested recently.

While the cycle list and extra features are certainly solid, those two elements by themselves don't really justify spending that much money on a dryer. Luckily, some retailers are already offering this Whirlpool Duet at discounted prices as low as $1000. If the inclusion of steam-based features is a plus for you and you don't mind paying extra for a fancier design, go for it; otherwise, you'd be better off saving some money and getting a better machine that's been on the market for a longer period of time.
