Great dryer!

By  from Charlottesville, VA  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 5

We've had this dryer for about a month. After getting acquainted with the control panel and user guide (a bit of a learning curve, considering that our old dryer was basically on or off, hi/low, and a lint screen) we love it! Love the steam feature - can't believe I lived without it all these years! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I did a lot of research as we were replacing all our appliances. Selected this model and from the time we plugged it in until now it has exceeded our expectations. Very quiet...

Excellent concept, great design, some real issues

By  from Oklahoma City, OK  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 3

Recommended Product:

Bought mine in April of 2015. Overall this was a "must-have" unit for my wife and I. The capacity, design and features were unmatched for us. And in dryer performance this one really shines - it definitely has prevented shrinking our clothes (like a prior unit did habitually) However... Some real quality issues: 1) The bottom tray makes an awful noise while the drier is running unless I press on it. It's not a foot leveling issue as it's been adjusted every which way. I will have to call service on this one. 2) The lint on the lint screen gets scraped off as you pull the screen out to clean it! I've never owned a drier that was this bad about this. I don't let the lint accumulate on it either, I always take it out after every load. This issue is very concerning because there's a high likelihood that lint then falls down the exhaust chute making it likely that it will clog the flue. I will likely bring this up in a service call as well.
