I am very pleased with this medium priced dryer. Has the steam component I was looking for. Dries clothes in a minimum amount of time. Clothes are not wrinkled!
The sensing cycles don't work very well, so we just use the timed cycle option to ensure items are properly dried. 1 year and a few days past the warranty, the dryer no longer chimes when turning on or off, or when the settings are changed. Sears and Kenmore will not troubleshoot an item that is out of warranty, but suggest that it's probably an issue with the main electronics board (an expensive fix). Knock wood, the drying does not seem to be affected. I'm disappointed in the lack of longevity, and in failure of Sears and Kenmore to stand by their product.
I bought both the washer and dryer 1 month ago from Sears. The dryer is not drying the clothes, I’ve tried every setting and now I’ve sat home for 4 hours (beyond my wait time) to get it looked at. I’m hugely disappointed and beyond aggravated. The machine was supposed to save me time, NOT take hours away from my life that I won’t get back!!! I hope the technician arrives (may be delayed another 2 hours!) and all I want is to do my laundry!!!
Very happy with the product.
We purchased this dryer along with the washer online. This was a mistake. We ordered it with the vent on the side and the door swing opening to the left. When we received the dryer it didn't have either one. The delivery man said that they need to send someone to our house to swap the door and move the vent. When they finally showed up to my house one week later, they said they were here to pick up my dryer. They said that it had to be fixed at the warehouse. I was upset, because that was not what they originally told me. So I let them take the dryer to the warehouse to get it fixed. A few days later they call and say it is ready to be dropped off. I take off work so that I can meet them at the house. That morning I received a phone call saying that the dryer is not going to be delivered that day and that I need to buy a vent kit. I call Sears to order the vent kit. I am on the phone with them for 4 hours! I ordered the kit and asked them to deliver it to the warehouse where they have my dryer. A few days later they say it will be delivered to my house. I take another day off from work. I get a phone call in the morning saying they have my vent and are delivering the vent to my house. They didn't have the dryer just the vent, so I told them to take it to the warehouse. I get a phone call the next day saying it is the wrong vent!!! My wife took off another day of work and went to the local Sears store hoping that there would be someone competent there. They said we should never have bought the washer and dryer online and that the online customer service doesn't know what they are doing. 3 hours later, my wife has ordered the vent to be shipped to the warehouse. A few days later I receive a call that we will have a delivery. I take off from work again only to receive another vent at the house and not the dryer. It was the wrong vent again!!! I went online, found the correct vent without the help of Sears, found the vent at a store half an hour away. I drove to the store, bought the correct vent, and then delivered it myself to the warehouse for them to install it. One week later, I call the warehouse and they still haven't put the vent on. The computer told them that the vent was not longer needed. Upon further digging, they found out that actually they were waiting on someone from the manufacturer to come install the vent but they had no idea when they would come out. It has been over a month and I still do not have a dryer. I complained to customer service and to Sears Corporate. No response. I cannot believe they are this incompetent and they take no responsibility for their actions. We have taken off work at least four times waiting for our dryer and nothing to show for it. I will never buy from Sears again.
