About Whirlpool clothes dryers

About Whirlpool refrigeratorsWhirlpool is the world’s largest manufacturer of consumer appliances with over 100,000 employees and more than 70 manufacturing and research facilities located across the globe.  The Company began as a family concern in November of 1911 when Louis and Emory Upton began manufacturing motor-driven wringer washers.  A series of mergers and acquisitions in the early 1900’s saw the company renamed Whirlpool in 1950 and the creation of the company’s first top-loading automatic washing machine.  The company is also responsible for the development of freeze-dried ice cream, which was supplied to NASA astronauts during the Apollo missions.

Whirlpool offers three models of clothes dryers, two with a 6 kilogram load and one with an 8 kilogram load.  The 8kg model offers excellent energy efficiency, with a 6 star rating, thanks to its efficient heat-pump condenser and drying sensors.
