Whirlpool WGD4800XQ Reviews & Ratings

WGD4800XQ 29" Gas Dryer, 7.0 cu. ft. Capacity, 13 Cycles, 4 Temperature Settings, AutoDry Sensor System, Wrinkle Shield Option, Extra-Large Top-Mounted Lint Screen, Interior Drum Light, in White is rated 4.552 out of 5 by 471.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is a really good dryer! This dryer has some very good features. I appreciate the wrinkle shield as I cannot always get to it right when clothes drying cycle finishes, so it keeps them wrinkle free! If I have one item that I would improve, it would be the handle for door opening. It seems to not be deep enough or at the wrong angle, as often my hand slips out rather than opening the door. I have also broken a finger nail when my hand slipped out! That is the worst! Does Whirlpool ever put the lint filter in the inside front of the dryer? I would like that feature better than on the top as pulling it out can be awkward. However, overall I like this dryer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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 3 out of 5 by from Liked my old set better Had my new dryer about a month. Really can't say that I'm thrilled with it. It is noisier than my old Kenmore model. In fact, I may be calling to see if it should be making as much noise as it does. I deliberately bought Whirlpool because I have had great luck with older models and I wanted American made. I wanted a simple machine without a lot of computer buttons. I prefer dials. There is a ton of space inside and it is drying well. I wish I could set the tumbling feature as it keeps turning back on (wrinkle guard) and that is wasted energy when I am not there to unload the clothes. My dryer is downstairs and I often get distracted and don't remember that a load is in progress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use This is a replacement dryer for one that lasted years and years, through the drying of rugs and sleeping bags, and hockey gear. What I like about this model is that the door opens to the side rather than down. It is easier to get the heavy items in, but getting them out is harder. They tend to end up on the floor. Bending over is not as easy as it used to be. Still I prefer having a dryer where I can store the laundry basket and detergent on top to one of those tall ones where the storage is down by my feet. I like the new dryer very much. It is a breeze to use with regular weight clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Dryer!!! I purchased this dryer when I moved into my new house which came equipped with a natural gas line instead of electric. I currently owned a very expensive Whirlpool electric dryer and was bummed I was going to have to spend more $$ to get a new dryer. WOW! I am so glad I had to because this dryer is amazing!! Not only was it a fraction of the price of the one I had owned, it was energy efficient, held a very large load of wet clothes and dried the clothes in record time (much faster than my expensive dryer I had owned). I am so happy with this purchase and strongly encourage you to buy it! Just a note, buy the dryer install kit with the dryer because they will need it to install properly. Love it!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks nice but pretty disappointed overall. Takes a long time to dry the clothes . . . must use high temp setting unless you've got hours to wait. Even on the high setting it is slow to dry. Also, not a very quiet dryer. Lint trap/screen is a disaster. Lint flies everywhere when you clean it and it does not trap all the lint. The holes are too big in the screen. I have a lot of lint and dust to clean up around the area after pulling up the lint trap to clean it. I do like the size of the inside of the dryer and the clothes are easy to get in and out. Next time will spend a little more and get something better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice dryer Pros: 1. The door swings all the way open, so you do not need to change which way it opens, although, you do have the option to do so. The door can either swing to the right, or to the left. 2. You can turn off the end cycle signal. Because of this, I can't even tell when the dryer is done, since it so quiet. Cons: 1. The filter for the lint is on top of the dryer, which causes a lot of the dust and lint to fly all over and gather on the top of the machine when you take the filter in and out. Overall, I am very satisfied with the dryer and would recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dryer has it all and for a great price. I would only point out the fact that it would be excellent if the door could open from either side, or ordered to open from one side or the other. Optimally, the door would work much more efficiently if it pulled down. I have a washing machine to the right of this dryer. The water is very difficult to move & the gas line is not going anywhere. So, the problem of unloading the washing machine in to the dryer on the left, that opens from left to right, is very inconvenient. I know that sounds like a small inconvenience, but the door really gets in the way, making it a chore to accomplish something that used to be done with ease. If my washing machine were to the left of the dryer, I would have nothing to say but excellent product.
