Awesome washer, it is absolutely huge for a front loading model.

Ok, nothing bad to say about this one. It is huge, the biggest I've seen for a front loading model for the home (of course there are commercial size ones in the laundromats I am NOT comparing it to those). Anyways clothes always come out dry in 50 minutes (which is very fast as I've tried some big loads).

Returning it

This will be going back to store. When using the moisture sensor to dry, there is no way to change the preset default temperature setting. Example: instructions say to dry jeans on heavy duty, but that is defaulted to high temperature and cannot be changed. The only way to modify the temperature setting for any load is to use "timed dry", which does not use the moisture sensor to determine when clothes are dry.

Nevermore, Kenmore

This dryer died after 27 months. The control panel and thermostat both failed and it was no longer full of hot air. When the repairman bypassed the thermostat, it was up to 230 degrees F. in 30 seconds. Dangerous. It would have cost $500 to fix a $600 dryer. Not worth it, and Kenmore has lost my business.

Cyber Monday is the best!!

Have only had his dryer for a couple weeks. So far it has proven to be the best "Bang for the Buck" dryer I have owned yet!

Drys as it should.
Can’t keep my children away from this set. They love doing laundry now (as opposed to using our OLD set), but it’s only been two weeks and I’m sure that will wear off.
