Pros & Cons
Whirlpool WED4900XW is a 7.0 cu. ft. Traditional Electric Dryer equipped with AccuDryTM system which provides excellent and fast drying performance when you need it. This system measures moisture and temperature and stops the cycle when the load is dry, which reduces over drying. It has 9 automatic cycles and 4 temperature settings giving users precise control over their drying, while the Wrinkle ShieldTM option helps prevent wrinkles from setting in. The controls are very easy to understand.
This Whirlpool dryer has wide-opening hamper door which allows an easy access, and the drop-down door even gives room to fold clothes. The machine has sound-absorbing materials strategically placed around the dryer drum to help reduce operational noise. There is an extra-large top-mounted lint screen which is easy to remove and replace. The larger size increases air flow and drying efficiency. Its large capacity drum cuts down on number of loads. Users like the flat top of this dryer because they can fold laundry or store the laundry basket on top.
A few users complain that sensor drying does not always work and may leave clothes damp. A handful of users find this dryer hard to clean.
Overall, Whirlpool WED4900XW is a well performing, no-frills basic dryer at a very reasonable price. It does the job consistently and well.
