Excellent Dryer for a Small Space
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Looked for a few months at reliable brands that would fit in a small space in a small laundry room, first floor of my house. The dryer with companion washer are easy to use and a good price point. Took a while to receive and install due to many appliances on back order. Controls are simple.

It fits perfectly! Seems like dryers are getting bigger and bigger. My space is not that deep so I needed a dryer with a flat back. This only one I could find with a medium size capacity. This dryer fits like a glove and it big enough to take care of all of my wash.

Great Dryer
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I needed a full size dryer with minimal depth and this unit fit the bill. It also is impressive how fast it dries. Along with the matching washer I was able to find a very nice set at reasonable prices.

Cannot get the water level where u need it to be. The auto function does not completely cover the clothes. The deep water level is not deep at all. I’m very disappointed with this machine.

Small but only thing that will fit
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very small, takes 2-3 cycles on high to dry medium loads fully. Flat back is what I needed and this was the only one available. Very loud!
