We seriously needed a new dryer for sanity sake. This appliance does so much more for what we consider a very fair price. Many more options compared to competitors at higher price.

Recently bought this dryer.. It is very easy to use. Great features that allow us to use only the amount of heat that we need. We no longer have to have the dryer going longer than we need.

It'll Do!

By  from Oklahoma  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 4

Recommended Product:

I bought the washing machine first which I just absolutely love. Later I got the matching dryer and have been using it for about 10 months. I find it complicated in some ways. In the beginning, just wouldn't dry my clothes all the way. I think it is too efficient. I finally had to take a good look at the settings and realized I had to increase the dryness level across the all settings by pressing firmly in on the Dryness Level button. I wished I saw how to use this feature earlier in the guide. Took 3 weeks of frustration to finally figure this all out. But after that, now everything dries pretty much on schedule. Now I am used to how it all works. I don't live in a humid area and dry small to medium large loads. The steam option is kinda of useless in my view. Only good for loads running longer than 60 minutes. Most of my items dry in 45 minutes or less. Like the easy to read display. This review is not part of a sweepstakes.

I had my first duet set 14 years and gave them to my daughter. Bought a different brand and after 3 months sold them and bought the duet series again. It features all the options I need from my delicates to my husbands who really works for a living! I love doing laundry again! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
