  • The dryer features a reversing drum that changes directions every 10 minutes to help reduce tangling and wrinkling. The Blue Anti-Tangle Cone in the back of the drum also helps reduce tangling and wrinkling of clothes as they tumble , and helps to improve the overall drying performance.

Very Convenient

I was skeptical when I bought this product. I had heard a lot of bad things about condensing dryers. I went for it anyway. It has been the best purchase I have ever made. I live in a small apartment in Alaska. Not only does this allow me to not have a hole in my house venting to the outside but it also sends the warm dry air into the room and reduces my heating bill. I have not had any problems drying loads. I am able to dry a full load in under two hours. I bought the washer as welll with  the stacking unit and have been very happy with both. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Delivered Damaged

The dryer was delivered with two dents on each side of the frame. I was told by Sears Delivery he would photograph the damage, send it to Sears and that I could expect a $100-$200 Rebate on the damaged model. When I wasn’t contacted after a few days, I called Sears only to be told that I failed to report the damage within 3 days so there was nothing they would do. Pretty bad customer relations.

DO NOT BUY THIS DRYER!!!!

|

I bought this dryer 13 months ago. ONE months after the warranty expired, the motor died. Sears technician came to repair, told us this unit is LEMON, and quotes us a repair cost that exceeded its original purchase price!!! Insane!!
Sears customer service was absolutely horrendous as well, no one could give a **** that their products are not keeping up with the former Sears quality.....after being a steadfast loyal  Sears customer for years, we are disgusted....
Will never buy from Sears again

Nice compact dryer

The dryer runs smooth, perfect for my condo. Not shaky at all, low noise. No issues so far. I am happy with it.

very good

good job of drying clothes and other items, no vent hose in back, air blow from front left bottom of dryer but it is only warm and doesn't really heat up area. very quiet, tosses clothes in both directions so nothing gets balled up and does not get dried.
has many different temperature and fabric settings.
has worked very well thus far, small and easy to use.
not made in USA however thankfully not made in china either, this product is made in Poland.
