Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the dryer we wanted We bought this dryer to replace a reliable 32-year-old machine that was also manufactured by Whirlpool. The hamper door was a must, and the new dryer door is larger and more convenient than the former machine's. The controls and features on the new dryer are also similar to the former machine, but improved via design evolution. The controls are quieter to operate, and are easier to read and interpret. An additional feature that we have found useful is the WrinkleShield. The light that comes on as the dryer door is opened to illuminate the drum interior is another great feature. The new dryer is definitely also quieter than the former machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dryer has enhanced fabric care. This new dryer from Whirlpool is especially careful of my clothes. I only use the medium setting, for energy savings, and with Accudry Automatic Dry Cycles all of my clothes come out perfectly dry and wrinkle free. This dryer is gentle on all my fabrics and very quiet while drying. The lint screen is easy to clean after every load. The Wrinkle Shield is an excellent feature for preventing wrinkles if the clothes can't be taken out when the dryer stops at the end of a cycle. The four temperature settings make it easy to dry my clothes, although as stated above, I always use either medium or low for energy savings. I like the wide opening hamper door. The dryer has been an excellent investment for my husband and I.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing new Features!! This is the first new dryer I have had in 28 years. My old whirlpool I bought back in 1985 and it finally came to its demise. I never had a service call on my old Whirlpool so of course I wanted another Whirlpool. I was so suprised at the new features like AccuDry and the Jeans drying feature and I never even had a buzzer to tell when it was done drying or wrinkle Guard. How amazing is this new technology and even for an Oldster like me its so easy to use. Everybody should enjoy purchasing this machine it will not disappoint you in the ease of use or the great features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My previous dryer was a Whirlpool that lasted me for 17 years My previous dryer was a Whirlpool that lasted me for 17 years of heavy use so it was natural for me to look again to Whirlpool for a replacement. I checked out the features of other dryers and was not satisfied with what they had to offer. This unit is a 7.0 cu. ft. gas dryer that has a drying system that measures moisture and temperature and stops the cycle when the load is dry thus saving energy over a timer. I've been using the Whirlpool for several weeks now and am very pleased. The filter is located on top for easy cleaning similar to my old unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with out Gas Dryer! This is not the most modern or top-of-the-line dryer there is, but we are very happy with it! Bought it because it was a great value compared to others in the same category/level and price range, and couldn't be more pleased. It is not the quietest, but it dries pretty well and the Energy Star rating was better than others -even more updated models-, which was an important factor for us. Also, I would've preferred the lint trap inside (by the door), but it's not a big deal. It has enough controls and settings to choose from; for common household use, I can't think you'd need anything more than what it offers. In overall, this is a good gas dryer. We're happy and would recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An All Around Great Dryer This is our first brand new dryer and we have been very happy with it. The capacity is awesome and it's really easy to use. The only two down sides I have found are that the moisture sensor is not always accurate (clothes come out damp sometimes) and it's noisier than I expected. But I would recommend this dryer to anyway especially for the price it's a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quiet dryer I am quite happy with my dryer purchase so far. It seems to dry clothes in a reasonable amount of time. I do like the AccuDry feature and use that almost exclusively. I bought this dryer to replace a working dryer that was terribly noisy. Constant squealing while running, I had it repaired twice and the squeal kept coming back. This dryer so far is very quiet it makes a reasonable amount of noise while running. I like the large size lint filter in the top deck of the dryer, I believe that it traps more lint than the lint filters in the dryer opening. However it does leave lint dust on top of dryer when you remove it to clean it. I also like the fold down door rather than the swinging door.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Whirlpool needs to go back to the drawing board I purchased the Whirlpool WGD4900 dryer and the Whirlpool WTW4950 washer. I have never been more displeased with these two products because you can't hear the noise they make when you purchase them. Unfortunately I can no longer do wash or dry during the evening hours because the noise would wake anyone trying to sleep. Very disappointed and now stuck with these products. We should be allowed to see a video of the appliances before purchasing them. The noise totally outweighs how clean or not clean the clothes are because the experience of doing laundry now has been something I barely tolerate.
