Answer: 
No! Not a good idea as the directions state. Have an electrician install a new outlet that is located where you use the dryer.

Answer: 
I had the same situation just after the dryer was installed. Home Depot arranged for a repair and it was determined that the belt had slipped during delivery. The repair person took care of the problem. I have had the dryer in action for two months now and love it.

Answer: 
Magic Chef has no adaptable duct and this causes a problem for the consumer. We had to improvise and attach a 4" accordion-style duct with aluminum tape. Then we attached the duct to the outside wall vent. Our dryer is wall mounted. Now it vents to the outside and works well.

Customer Reviews

Compact 2.6 cu. ft. Electric Dryer in White is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 89.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job I read the reviews and decided on this dryer to accompany my portable washer. I keep it on the counter top in the bathroom. It was easy to set up and gets my clothes dry. Just have to remember to clean out the lint after each drying session because it builds up. Also I keep the bathroom door open when dryer is in use because it gets pretty humid in my small bathroom.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable - multiple failures in one year This seemed like a great dryer that is small, runs on 115V, and has some neat features - until I owned it for a few months. Then the timer died after 6-months (covered under warranty but a few weeks of down-time). 6-months later the new timer died too. Now out of warranty a new timer is $32 if I put it in myself. Instead I bypassed the timer and then added an external timer to turn the power off to the unit. While dealing with the timer I discovered the fan belt was shot (barely over a year old) and had to special order a new one for $33. The exhaust port behind the drum was soo clogged it was restricting 95% of the air flow making the unit very inefficient and had to be disassembled and the grates cut out to get it clean and keep it from clogging up again. Overall it is a cute dryer but clearly poorly designed and built with unreliable parts considering I had four failures in one year (two timer failures, a belt failure, and clogged up exhaust port that required disassembly). I would never buy one again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Compact Dryer I purchased this to replace a full size Dryer (Gave Out). Since I have laundry just for two people I looked into a smaller less expensive model. The Magic Chief Dryer looked good for it's Features, Size and Cost. I have been using it for about a month and it works fine. I can Dry a nice Load of Underwear, Socks, Wash Cloths, etc. that will last Two people around Two Weeks between Washes and do a Load of Bath Towels for a Little over a Week between Washes. The Dryers runs fine with no problems and is Quiet Sounding. I am impressed by how this Dryer Dries Clothing and ease of Cleaning the Filters. This is a Great Dryer for Two People or someone who needs a Nice Compact Dryer of Quality.

The dryer is very good for my needs,I have it in a small closet,only problem I had was trying to find a duct hose to fit it,as 4" is the standard,this dryer takes a 3/4" duct hose,which I had a hard time finding ,you would think Magic Chef would make one,I think it should be included with product,even if they have to charge a few dollars more. Now, for anyone who needs one,you can but a 6' 3/4" duct hose from O'Reilly's Auto Parts,if there is one near you,the part number (duct hose) is 55043,I found this after much online research,hope this helps.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The worst machine ever! I purchesed it and it didn't work. Dead, zero... A great desapointment! The worst came next when I called their costumer service... A cold-lemons voice woman atended me and sayed somebody would contact me for a visit... Nobody did that, so, I returned the item to Home Depot! Do not waste your time and money!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Vent hose is an issue. Dryer works better than expected for a portable unit. Dryer vent is an issue. We could not find a vent hose that would fit the supplied elbow. I installed a 3 to 4 inch adapter and used standard flex hose. This moved the unit much further from the wall. A compatible hose should be supplied with the dryer.
