Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 100 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very efficient and time saving I love my new dryer. My clothes are dry alot faster than with my old dryer. I did have some concern when I first used my HE washer because the clothes were so wrinkled but after putting them in the dryer everything came out wrinkle free. I have used the steam feature once and the item came out fresh smelling and wrinkle free. I just realized another feature of the dryer...when I put a load of clothes in the dryer the timer showed a certain time on the dryer. I checked on the clothes and the time had changed I guess because the sensor showed that the clothes were not dry in that time period. I think that is a pretty neat feature. With my old dryer I wouldn't find out that the clothes needed more time until it turned off. April 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buy this dryer Excellent dryer, large capacity allows us to only have to dry 2 loads - one for whites & one for darks (very appreciated time saver with two young girls), very easy to use, love the many different cycle options, especially the steam cycle option, clothes come out softer than any other dryer I have used , very highly energy efficient saving on operating costs, very consistent dryness levels after each cycle (it senses the weight of the clothes & automatically adjusts the drying time to achieve very consistent drying levels), love the wrinkle free option that works very well, it is very easy to use. I highly recommend this dryer & the washer that goes with it. March 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just tumble or steam.Perfect for quick touch ups. This new dryer has water hooked up in the back incase you want to use the steam cycle.You can select the type of clothes and use just heat for wrinkle free garment touchups or select the steam cycle and you're really in business.My daughter sells clothes on EBAY and she is constantly touching up the clothes before shipping.She said the amount of returns has dropped dramatically since the clothes look so good after touching them up with this dryer.
