Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 306 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Being a widower, I had to select a washer and dryer that I could afford and had great quality and ease of operation. The Whirlpool washer and dryer I bought was the WTW4800XQ4 and the WGD4800XQ4. I made a great pick!! January 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a nice machine. While I've always liked gas dryers for their efficiency, I have to say, this machine is truly amazing. It has many different settings and cycles to accommodate any drying situation you may have. And I love the energy saving automatic temperature control. Keep up the good work, Whirlpool. April 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 No more wrinkled clothes!! Energy-Preferred Auto-Dry setting has reduced cycle drying time, and in conjunction with the End Of Cycle Buzzer has virtually eliminated wrinkles! Thank you, Whirlpool! April 16, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by You get what you pay for. When I had to finally break down and purchase a new washer/dryer combo, I purchased the most affordable set, as I am a widow on Social Security. All I can say is I wish I would have had more money to work with, as I did have top of the line machines previously. I didn't realize what a huge difference there would be. I figured it's Whirlpool, so I didn't think twice about buying them. The washer is SO LOUD you can't help but listen to it, it sounds like a space shuttle taking off! And the dryer, well, I didn't realize about the sideways opening door, and the clothes come out wrinkled, no matter what setting I put it on. So all and all, I guess you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice product with good features Nice product with good features I would recommend this product. April 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Choice Recently purchased this dryer and have found it to be a very good choice. We have our washer and dryer in the basement and do not notice any annoying sounds when it is running, yet can still hear the notification beep when the dryer is done. I love it that there is a light inside. So far we are delighted to have our new dryer. I like it that the lint trap is on top too. March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This Is a Keeper I bought this dryer to replace a 23 year old Whirlpool that finally gave up. I must say that, so far, I'm more than satisfied. It's quiet and efficient. I really like the oversized door, which makes transferring laundry in and out a breeze. It's got some nice features without too many superfluous bells and whistles. I expect to get another 23 years from this one. March 27, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by I like the buzzer that tells me when the load is finished so I can take care of that load right away. On the overall I like this product because it's American made and I am all for keeping jobs here in the USA. On the overall I like being able to control the amount of time I use as I keep it in sync with my washing machine. Also I purchased the brand Whirlpool as it has been around for years and I had my old dryer at least 15 years before I had to replace it and so the overall quality and workmanship were a big factor. What I do not like is that unless I get the load out right away my load of clothes has massive wrinkles and I am finding that I need to pull out my iron which I have not used for years. My old dryer I did not have this problem at all and this one comes with a wrinkle free system but it has to be set after the load is finished originally and not in conjunction with the end of the original drying cycle. Ergo I like the buzzer feature as I can save myself ironing. November 8, 2013
