How long should a dryer last?
A dryer usually lasts 10-13 years with proper care and maintenance by the user. Improve your dryer's life expectancy by always cleaning the lint trap after every use and cleaning out the vent frequently.
How do I choose a dryer?
As you consider your options, ask yourself if you need a large capacity for big loads, or if a compact size is more appropriate for your situation. Figure out where you want to install your dryer, and make sure the model you choose will fit. Choose a dryer that is ENERGY STAR® certified for extra savings. You'll also want to consider the features on your dryer model, and the overall quality of the machine.
