Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DelBay Amazing Portable Dryer
Great portable dryer. It is just perfect for an apartment. Small and convenient and it does dry your clothes. I guess it takes a little bit longer compared to the regular dryers but for the price and the convenience you can't ask for more. Really happy with the purchase. Thanks Home Depot!!

This dryer is great for the apartment. I have a Haier washer that is taller but not as wide and the two work well together. For a few years I've used the washer and hung the clothes to dry which takes so much time. The dryer makes laundry a lot easier to deal with. The way the lint filter works was a little weird to me coming from "traditional" dryers, but it seems to be very effective. It's a large (frisbee-sized or so) disk at the back that you pop out. I have it vented to a "Dundas JafineProFlex Indoor Dryer Vent Kit (TDIDVKZW)" (purchased at the same time from Home Depot) which is basically a bucket with a couple holes and water in it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MsKLC Very affordable dryer for a smaller space
Purchased this dryer for an apt. in my home because i did NOT want another appliance there that required a 220 electrical supply. Before installing it, i tried it myself. Of course it takes longer to dry a load than a regular dryer, and of course the loads have to be smaller, but that should be expected. The wide range of timing and chcle choices, etc. is really outstanding for a smaller unit. PLEASE don't let someone tell you it does not have to be vented, however. That would be a true fire hazard. For a small space such as an eff. apt., this is a great choice. Glad i brought it and i'm happy to recommend it. Don't know yet how it will impact my electric bill.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kelly Drying is time consuming
While this has been a big improvement in my laundry situation, I have to say it does take a while to dry articles. I haven't gotten my electric bill yet, so I'm hoping the energy use is efficient and not costly. It seems to be an average time of about an hour to dry things. Considering you can't put a whole lot in there, one top sheet for example, it's a long time. Still and all, being an apartment dweller, it's significantly better than having to share with other tenants or worse going to the laundromat. I also have the Haier portable washer that I love. Both appliances really do make doing the chore of laundry easier.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Donnie Good dryer for the money
At first I had misgivings about the small dryer. It was affordable but it wasn't on casters and the controls were near the floor. The dryer came with wall mounting brackets and instructions for mounting, so I anxiously mounted it to the wall above the utensil ledge. This put the controls and dryer opening at eye level. Now, it is just perfect for our needs! The companion washer resides in a space next to it and these two are efficient and never in the way in our kitchen! We are so very pleased! Heavier loads like towels take a timed cycle but most other loads dry very well with a normal or heavy cycle.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LiveAlone Light loads Trouble free, Worth the money
Haier has increased their quality over the last few years. I have the small washer and now the dryer and both seem to be capable of doing the job. Both have and electronic interface, and seem to be built to a higher standard. My first experience a few years back was disappointing. I have not had need to contact their customer service department. One can interrupt the processes or modify the processes easily. Lint filter is a little clumsy. This is not for heavy loads. Blankets or heavy jackets are a no way, But light clothing and bedding will work. So a trip to the laundromat is still in the cards.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a1994r LOVE this little dryer.
As long as you don't stuff it to capacity, this dryer is amazing! I tried putting in a heavy blanket, just to see what would happen...and it didn't really do anything to it. I think it was too heavy to spin around... BUT everything else I've put in, including towels, has been dried by the second cycle.
We needed something that could plug into a regular outlet, and not take up much space...and this is PERFECT.
Also, we didn't install the vent. We run it under a window, and open the window right where the vent is, so no holes in the wall in case we decide to move it later.

As a single mom in a small studio house, the two drying racks we were using took up too much space, and as the days/nights turned colder our clothes were taking days to dry. Took the plunge, got this dryer and love it! Sure it takes a bit longer than a 220v dryer but much better than days of clothes hanging around. It's compact size makes it easy to place and have it not be in the way.
Be sure to pick up a indoor vent kit too, if you live in a place without an outside vent option. Sure that is a bit bulky but it allows for dryer use and that's awesome!
