Summary: Had to get a new washer, so got the dryer also. (Old one worked but was very, very old & it squeaked). Had heard bad things about the newer products, so was concerned about the purchase. No need to be. It works great, clothes dry quickly, and I am happy.
Summary: This dryer meets my everyday drying needs and does not have extra bells and whistles that would just make it cost more. I do not love the lint trap being on top of the unit. This feature makes it impossible to have even a small stack of folded laundry on top and be able to remove and clean lint trap. It seems that the top of the unit always has lint on it as well. I prefer the lint trap inside the front of the unit (the door closes over it).
