    I needed a new dryer to replace a 30+ year old compact electric dryer that had performed wonderfully for a LONG time. I researched credible review web sites and after much research decided to give this model a try. So far there are absolutely NO regrets. It dries quick and completely without cooking the clothes. It shuts itself off savings TONS of wasted energy and money. It will dry even my largest comforter efficiently and quickly, and does it all with almost no noise at all. With the wonderful extra features, this is everything I wanted in a dryer, and more, and did not cost me a ridiculous amount of money. Very reasonable price and easy to install. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    This dryer is very noisy, because of the design of the rounded top and the fact that the top vibrates and rattles all of the time. But that isn't the only problem with this machine. The dryer cycles through different stages of dryness, which is great is you want to take an article of clothing out partially dried, but it's cooling down cycle doesn't function well, it heats up again before the drying cycle is finished, so clothes come out of the dryer really hot and far more wrinkled than my old dryer.

    Excellent and usable features

    By rupes123

    from College Station, TX, United States

    Comments about Whirlpool WGD5550XW White Gas Dryer:

    I bought this gas dryer approximately 3 months ago. It is used daily and has features that make drying clothes more efficient. These features are settings for drying temperature that are actually different in temperature, a lighted dryer compartment, and the most usable feature is the delayed setting that tumble the clothes at an interval for approximately 150 minutes, which keeps the clothes from coming out wrinkled.

                        Takes some time to figure out the best drying times for different types and load sizes. But once that's figured out I found this dryer to be very efficient. Especially like the wrinkle shield feature. Even like the musical tones. The only thing I may not like is the lint dryer. The screen is easy to clean but the cloth seal between the screen and edge is difficult to clean. I'm concerned if this will hold up after a few years use.

                            This is a great dryer and I have found it to be the best I have used in 40 years. The only issue is the lint filter. If it is redesigned so that the fiber seal would not come off after only a year, I would have given excellents in all categories.

                                I love the gas dryer and what a savings over electric. I wish the matching washer was a bit quieter. Great Value.
