Best Dryer Ever

I love this dryer. I have been using for a year and no issues. Huge capacity, ability to change the temp to reduce overall drying time, easy to use controls.

I would give a negative review if I could

Purchased the dryer and matching washer on July 11th. On August 29, 2017, the dryer made a "thump" noise and stopped working. Sears home repair is a joke and the earliest anyone can come out to repair is September 11. When I called the local store where I purchased for help, they told me to call the 800 number and hung up on me. Never, EVER, again will I buy anything from Sears.

Kenmore Elite or Kenmore Average?


Sadly disappointed with product and service to resolve. Lint filter will not stay seated during operation and have had four service calls to resolve. Techs are fine but they keep doing the same work and call it "better". This is an "Elite" labeled product. Better is not expected...right is. Would have positive review based on all other factors. Drying times are down and love the features. But, it's a gamble if there are issues and the online service support will read the same script over and over about replacement policies.

Great dryer, not the greatest steamer

3 defective units


I purchased both the washer and dryer from Sears and I am on my 3rd, yes I’ll say it again. 3rd replacement dryer. It will not dry clothes, and gives an error code. The 3rd replacement has issues as well, the drum light will not turn off. After many hours of calls to Kenmore I asked to simply return the washer and dryer, and of course the request was denied. I would HIGHLY recommend NOT purchasing this dryer or washer.

Poor quality


Both this unit with the matching dryer. The water drawer for the steam function is not squared with the rest of the unit. Looking closer at it, I realized the plastic holding the slide is cracked. When a new slide unit replacement was used the steam function stopped working. Several trips from Sears repairmen and the thing is still not working as it should. For a brand new unit, this is disappointing. Our previous Kenmore Elite set never faltered. I think quality for the brand has gone downhill fast.
