Great well built dryer
Quality dryer. Safe quiet and efficient . Quick and almost wrinkle free
by Kenny 1919
Great value
The only thing I'm finding odd about this dryer so far is how long the signal goes for at the end of the dry cycle. Other than that, great appliance for a good price compared to others on the market
by MommaBx3
Does the job!
Dries quickly. Not too many crazy features. No complaints

Just got it delivered yesterday and so far I love it. Little noise but I can deal with it.

knobs show up nicely in color. Simple to operate
Quiet and I like the notice when clothes are done. And it will remind you again...if you have not come to get your clothes out. I even washed my doll clothes ...as shown in photo. Delicate dry cycle
by Baby cakes Rainbow
Silence is golden.
I purchased the basic model dryer without doing research. Big mistake- the first load I did had me jumping out of my seat when the dryer alarm went off. After reading reviews I discovered "Dryer alarm sounds like an NBA game buzzer." And there was NO way to turn it off. I had to exchange it for the more expensive model just to have the option to turn the buzzer off. Now its much better. I like the dryer- my clothes come out with less wrinkles. I like the large capacity too.
by Beccabean
Super clean look
We love our dryer so much! We (my fiancé and I) had to go out and buy a dryer tonight due to us having 2 babies and ourselves clothes to dry and our dryer we have been using went out on us. We’ve never owned a new dryer or washer just used so this is a major upgrade for us! We got the matching washer as well! We love them both and all their settings and how big they are (load wise)
by Kaila0225
