This dryer is so quiet I had to check to see if it was running! After researching dryers for four days, this one had the best and most features suited for my needs, even outdoing the high end dryers. All reviews I read from web sites have this dryer rated very high. Dries very quickly and the moisture sensor cuts the dry time in half versus my old brand name dryer. Having been without a dryer for 5 days, I had enough laundry to use all the features, such as auto timer, sensor dry, energy saver, wrinkle remover, casual, heavy, etc. all worked well beyond my expectations. Very large drum that holds my king comforter, a great plus. If you are looking for a dryer that has basically the same features as the high ends, and don't need additional bells, whistles, and features you won't ever use, I highly recommend this dryer. One thing to point out is to make sure to check your area dimension as this is 29" wide as opposed to others at 27". I'm glad I noticed this before purchasing and even happier that it fit. Great bang for the buck!

I tried to use the accudry when I first purchased my dryer (march 1,2013) I had to dry the load of clothes 3 times (YES 3X) to get them completely dry.So naturally I thought that I had put too many clothes in the dryer,so on my next load I only washed my son's Aeropostle jacket by it's self and dried it on accudry and I had to dry that thin lil jacket twice (YES 2X) to get it dry.so I started using the "timed dry" function and found that no matter how small or large the load I had to put the timer on "heavy load" and there have been a lot of times that I have had to dry them 2 and 3 times just to get them dry. i'm very upset, one of the reason's why I bought this dryer is because of the accudry to save money on my electric bill, but that isn't the case as a matter of fact I am no rocket scientist but I venture to guess that my electric bill will be higher because of having to run the dryer multi times just to get the clothes dry?? I purchased a Whirlpool produce because I THOUGHT that it was a high quality name brand and I trusted that it would do what it said that it would do. i'm very very disappointed with my purchase!!!

      Comments about Whirlpool WED4900XW White Electric Dryer:

      I did a lot of research before I purchased this dryer. The Whirlpool name is reliable and I love that their products are made in the U.S.A. The energy efficient sensor drying cycle is a must for new dryers, but you have to learn how it works. I find if you try to dry heavy clothes on the sensor setting, your clothes may not be completely dry at the end of the cycle. I suggest timed drying for heavy loads. But all in all, I am very happy with this purchase. Highly recommend Whirlpool appliances!

          Often when washing sheets or just a few items it has difficulty finish the last spin cycle. It will often become unbalanced when this occurs. Overall the ease of use and wash quality are great.

                  I paid a bit more for the brand name, but so far, it's worth it. I was pleasantly surprised at the way it dries my clothes in comparison to my old (now dead) dryer. The only feature I'm not really liking is the lint trap. When you pull it out to clean it, lint flies everywhere and leaves a nice coating on my appliances. Otherwise, I do love this dryer.

                    It has been a long time since we've purchased a new dryer and were surprised to find that this model is an inch shorter and 2 inches wider than the old dryer. We didn't buy a matched set so it doesn't line up well with our current washer. The new dryer functions well although it has a tinny, cheap feel. I guess that's what happens when the budget dictates the quality that could be afforded. Nevertheless, we look forward to at least 10 years of trouble free service.

                        This dryer is very easy to use and gets the job done well. I really like the energy saving features and it's reasonably quiet. The one complaint I do have is that the opening is not huge and you have to bend down quite a bit to get your clothes inside. Also, there is a hook at the top of the opening that can snag your clothes if you are not careful. Other than that, I would recommend this machine.

                            When the installers put in my new drawer, they noted that the dryer removed had a tag label that read installed 1975 & it was a Whirlpool. I have great confidence that this one will serve us as well. Thank you Whirlpoo!

                              I purchased this item with it's matching washing machine. Unlike the washing machine, this dryer is very nice. It dries my clothes very quickly and has a nice variety of settings for all different styles of clothing. My favorite features are the wrinkle guard and the end of cycle buzzer. I get busy and forget to get the clothes out of the dryer so I appreciate the reminder. While it is loud and goes off very often, one can always switch the knob to the off setting. It does an excellent job with towels and jeans-dries they very quickly. I think most dryers are loud but this isn't excessive; just loud. Plus I dislike the dryer vent on the top section of the dryer but I've had one in the door and it's equally as messy.

                                      The dryer is not flashy or spectacular, but it dries our clothes. The lint trap never fails to make the top of the dryer dirty when you clean it out, but it is something that I have gotten use to. Great product for the price. I do recommend this product.
