LOVE this dryer!

Bought the matching washer as well. I've had it a week and a bumpy start with the install. FIRST I bought online sight unseen and the site did NOT tell me I had to buy a new vent and gas flex hose. Liability, the installers would install if I bought those parts. I asked for install for the washer, maybe if I did for the dryer it would have told me. Nothing wrong with mine, and installed myself. It also did NOT come with the 6 ft steam hose.It did come with the Y connector and a 1 ft hose to connect to existing wall water supply, but I had to buy the 6 ft hose to then reach to bottom of the dryer at *****. Better cuz the Y connector was metal as was the hose. The dryer door is reversable and is hinged on the right, but lots of parts and book tells you how to. We will try it. It opens more than 90 degrees, so you could leave it. The hamper door does NOT drop down to 90 degrees, but only 40 degrees like a chute. It actually is helpful. I just steamed my Thanksgiving tablecloths for the 5 cycle and came out beautiful.You can see the water droplets in the drum from the steam so you'll know it's working. The manual is really helpful to determine what cycle for what. There's a lot of them. The metallic dark gray color really nice for a change.

Would not recommend

The timer for the dryer may say 15 left go back in 15 and more minutes are added. There is inconsistency

Too much steam


Although this product works great, it produces an enormous amount of steam which cause my smoke alarms to go off.  It also produces steam on the walls and my new shutters. So the feature of extra hot and steam cannot be used.
