Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and easy on the clothes I think part of it is the ability of the washer to yield clothes that are pretty well wrung out, but this dryer is fast! And the lint screen (more on that later) is not clogged up, meaning the clothes are not deteriorating. The felt seal on the lint screen has come detached, which may be typical, but is sort of a pain. Other than that, it is difficult to find fault. As I said with the washer, probably would not go with the pedestals if a do-over, but not a huge deal at this point. When it is so easy to use the liquid softener, the clothes come out of the dryer with a most satisfying smell. Couldn't be more pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DRYER MAKES OUR FAMILY LIFE EASIER!!!! THIS DRYER IS GREAT!!! THE DRY TIME IS SHORTER WHICH GIVES US MORE TIME TO DO THE THINGS WE LIKE TO DO. A DRYER THAT TAKES LONGER IS ACUTALLY EATING UP YOUR TIME. YOU CAN PUT THE CLOTHES IN AND THEY ARE ACTUALLY DRY WHEN THE TIMER IS FINISHED. WITH OUR OLD DRYER IT WOULD SAY THEY WERE GOING TO BE DRY, BUT WERE STILL DAMP AFTER THE CYCLE. THE CLOTHES HAVE NO WRINKLES!! IT IS AMAZING. OUR POWER CONSUMPTION HAS ALSO DROPPED. SO GLAD WE PURCHASED THIS DRYER!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer I have the gas dryer & when I first got it it wouldn't work (No Heat). After calling repair man out it turned out something in dryer shifted when it was being shipped & it was a quick fix. Since then this gas dryer works very well. It drys a full load of towel in 45 minutes or less. Smaller loads are even faster. Lots of options to choose when drying clothes. Display showing who much time is left is nice. I like how you can choose different settings based on what you are drying. Dryer is nice & quiet. I like the beeper plays music when done instead of that annoying buzzer noise. I am very happy with this dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best we have ever own! We love the dryer. The pedestal makes it so much easier than standing on your head and leaning inside the drum to get clothes out. VERY quiet, and we debated getting the steam option but have found we use it a lot. One thing the steam is wonderful for is fluffing pillows!! We bought the Maxima front load washer to pair with it and love it as well. Leaving the door and drawer for adding detergent cracked open after use resulted in NONE of the "odor" problems reported by some owners.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Bought the washer-dryer pair through Costco about 2 years ago at a great price and the delivery/installation was perfect....and I normally do these things myself, so I'm not an easy customer. Both washer and dryer have worked well since. The only thing that could have been better for us is the flexibility to reverse the doors both ways. Our dryer is on the left side so the washer door blocks the path to the dryer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Machine We purchased this dryer about a month ago and my wife loves it. However, all the electronic features can be a little confusing until you get used to them.
Date published: 2011-11-07
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stacking feature is helpful I've been using my set for about 6 months - have found that there is some sort of flaw in the design of the door opening - not the door itself, as some items of clothing get stuck and ruined inside the dryer itself. I have also not been happy with the automatic dry feature where the dryer shuts off before my clothes are completely dry so I have to use the non-automated setting and time dry my items. I do like the steam-cycle and the shelf for drying delicate items or shoes - it comes in handy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The features are good but many of they are not used very often. Average dryer, matches the washer we wanted. Most of the features are overkill for the average user.
