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.

This dryer is a great size for my home and works perfectly. I love the fact that it is squeezing water out of the clothes and not making a lot of heat in the house. Thank you!

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.
