Hey,

I didn't see this posted, so I thought I'd share.

My gf and I purchased this same dryer and we picked up the non agitator version of this washer a few months ago for around this price. Both have worked great so far and aren't that noisy ( we live in an apartment so one of my concerns was noise)

My sister has a Cabrio and it doesn't take in enough water to properly wash stuff. Brought over a repair tech and they said it functions this way. If you want a decent washing machine to actually do a great job and be reliable look at Speed Queen. Everyone raves about them, sure they are a bit more expensive but you'll end up replacing one of these more times that it will negate the initial cost.

Yeah, my wife and I got the WTW4900BW and WED4850BW in 2014 and had them for a year, and they were fantastic. Moving to a new place, and wanted to get Whirlpool again, so we were happy to see this deal (combined with 10% coupon and CB of course).

They all still use the same technology to sense the water. You don't have an option any longer for small,medium or large loads where it is measured by height of the water.

Agree I hate the water sensing technology. Bought something with this technology, but when I open the lid when it starts to wash only it will fill up so I do that every time.

I think it's more based on what you have in your house - gas or electric at the utility hook-ups.

Depends on rates and how you get charged.

Where I live, electricity is expensive and gas isn't. We have tiered rates so the more you use, the more expensive per unit. The electricity here is very tiered, with more than medium usage very rapidly getting expensive, while the gas only has a few lower hike tiers.

We have very hot summers with a lot of AC and mild winters with just a few months of heating.

In my setup, an electric dryer is a disaster. Coupled with the AC in the 4 hot summer months it'd tier up to almost $400/mo. A gas dryer even in the winter heating months doesn't tier up to a particularly high rate.

So I'm seeing about a $250-300 per year savings by going with gas over electricity. If you live near a nuke or hydro and have ridiculously cheap electricity with generous tiers or gas is very expensive in your area, electric might be better. If you have a huge rooftop solar array and the local utility isn't paying that much for overproduced electricity, electric might be better.

We have natural gas and when I changed out the electric dryer for the gas unit I saw an immediate reduction in my electric bill ((household of 6 people) with a negligible increase in my gas bill.
I'd recommend a natural gas or liquid propane gas dryer to anyone.

Dry's door type is "Reversible side swing" which is a plus.

I guess gas is cheaper everywhere.

I bought this GE http://www.lowes.com/pd/GE-3-8-cu...1000052849 in August for about $30 more and it's awesome. You can fill the water up to the very top (or not ..theres 4 levels) ..has an agitator that actually moves the clothes around and has enough room to wash a comforter..Some reviews were say it's loud but I don't find it so ..usually they don't have it level. I had an Kenmore HE washer before this one and it A.died about 3 seconds after warranty expired and used about a cup of water per load. So happy I got this old school washer our clothes are 200% cleaner too. I'll never go back to HE again!
Wanted to add that there is no water sensor..just 4 different levels and you can also pause the cycle and open lid to add clothes if you like.
