Product Reviews
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1130 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value with Great Features I did a lot of research. I called three appliance repair businesses and they all had very similar recommendation but the one thing I heard first was Whrilpool. I have other appliances here at home and at my second home on the coast, I have always had very good luck with Whirlpool. This dryer was a great value for the features we needed. We had never got that type of door on a dryer and we are really happy with the fold down door. It works very, very well for us and I would highly recommend this dryer to anyone. 12/21/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is superb and the variety of features is a plus Even though it is a bit noisy, more than the washer pair that we purchased with it, it is definitely a great buy. The capacity is superb and the results in every load are great. Our clothes are dry but not scorched and that reduces shrinkage and loss of material. At first you do have to get to know your product, it is definitely not a plug and play machine, but all in all, it is simply excellent. A bit pricy, but still a good buy. Thanks. 12/27/13
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dries well for energy efficient Works better than other energy efficient driers. Great feature with extended tumble for wrinkle shield. Very quiet running. Also has longer lint trap on top so lint doesn't get all over clothes or inside drier door. 12/18/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good dryer Bought this WED4850BW dryer to replace a GE dryer that was a piece of junk since it was 3 months old. I have a Whirlpool oven that has been excellent since we got it 12 years ago so I wanted to go with Whirlpool because I believe they make a high quality product. Judging by the looks and feel of this dryer I think it should last me a long time. Plus, it's made in the USA - I try to buy USA products every time I can. I also like the looks of this dryer - it looks more modern. I deducted just a little for sound - I wouldn't say it's loud - definitely more quiet than my last dryer but I just wish it was a bit quieter. I suppose if I bought an upgraded model it would be quieter but the features on this dryer are all that I wanted/needed. 12/21/13
