The outside of the dryer does not seem as sturdy as the 25 year old one I replaced, which was a nearly identical model. Hopefully the inner workings will be just as long lasting as the old one, time will tell. The lint filter seems very efficient. Drying time is reduced. I like having very few options, this one is simple to operate, and was purchased at a reasonable cost.

We've had this dryer since we moved into our new home at the end of September 2011. It was new and unused, installed by a developer. I was quite impressed with the dryer initially. I used the sensor setting and the laundry was always dry at the end of the cycle. My old dryer required me to run the sensor setting at least twice to get everything completely dry, so I thought this was a big improvement. In mid-November, I went to get my daughter's gym uniform out of the dryer one morning and it was still sopping wet. I thought it was odd, but I restarted the dryer, with the setting on high, hoping that it would be dry enough for her to wear by the time she had to leave. When I went down 30 minutes later to check on it, everything was cold and still very wet. Suddenly it was obvious that the problem was the dryer was no longer heating up. (My daughter went to school with a note apologizing for her lack of a uniform for the day). We called and made a claim on the warranty and it was repaired in 2 business days. It took the repairman about 10 minutes to fix. He said that the fuses go out quite a bit. That concerned me, but I was hoping that he just meant, in general for his repair work, not in general for the model. Well, apparently he meant for the model because here we are, less than 3 months later, and the dryer is once again not heating up. This time it's particularly irksome because our 10 month old has the flu and I have piles of laundry covered in vomit that are 1) not being sanitized by the heat in the dryer and 2) are taking 3-4 hours to air dry (sanitized or not, we need some essentials). I'm keeping the loads small so that I can keep things more on the 3 hour side of the line, but the bottom line is this thing has failed me twice in less than 6 months. At the moment, even two stars seems generous, but, as I said, it does work well...when it actually works.

Comments about Whirlpool White Gas Dryer:

We replaced a high end dryer, that wasn't very old, that couldn't be fixed. Decided that I didn't need all the bells and whistles - just needed a dependable dryer. Disappointed that the new dryer isn't more quiet, but it dries the clothes perfectly, which is the most important feature.

      Comments about Whirlpool WGD4900XW White Gas Dryer:

      I purchased this dryer to match the older style washer that I currently have. I purchased the old washer and dryer as a set about 9 years ago. This dryer performs well, has all the features I need, and was reasonably priced.

          This dryer is great!! I love the fact that it is just plan simply to use. My two children have no problem in using this dryer. The front pull down door even makes it better. Highly recommend to anyone. I like it better than my old front loaders. You NEVER use all the bells and whistles buttons on the new machines so why pay for them.. You still have the options that we all use on a everyday situation and it works great!

                      In the past, every time my wife needed to do laundry she dreaded it and would give the job to our daughter's. With our new dryer that is no longer the case. I know to head straight to the laundry room if I come home and say "hi honey" and she doesn't respond. All of a sudden she loves to do laundry and that room has replaced the kitchen as her favorite room. I can't seem to pull her out of there!

                          Works great, love that I can turn the "done" sound off if I want to. The only thing I would change is to be able to open the door to the dryer from the top instead of the side. It is a bit low to the ground and the angle is awkward.

                                I have NO idea of it's longevity, my last dryer, a Whirlpool aka Sear was 43 years old, "I" replaced the gas heater only because of a non-functioning relay I could not simply replace. The unit was clean, sound, no rust like my 22 year old washer, the bottom of which started rusting out after 4 years, also a Whirlpool. POI, If it does last 20 YEARS OR SO I WILL MOST LIKELY NOT BE AROUND TO KNOW IT.....
