    There is a knob protruding in the back of the inside of the dryer where the steam comes out and it catches on items. It has ruined several items. I have had a service person come out to inspect this and they have said, sorry this is just how it's made, live with it.

          I'm very pleased with my dryer. My previous dryer was 23 yrs old Maytag gas. I have no compliants with the features of my new gas dryer. I elected not to hook up the "steam" feature at this time. My clothes come out wrinkle free as it is.

                            Nice large capacity in a compact box.. Does a good job with everything but the smallest of drying loads. Very small loads seems to trick the sensors and thus are very hard to get fully dry.

                              This dryer is spacious and has a feature of steam drying. This is particularly great for me because my laundry room is on a lower floor and I sometimes get busy and forget about the time on the dryer. When I realize it, the clothes have been laying in the dryer long enough that they are now wrinkled. The steam cycle freshens the clothes and they come out wrinkle free. I don't have to iron them! It's GREAT!

                                  I absolutely love my dryer. It is only missing one feature that I wish it had. It does not have the ability for me to set the timer to whatever I want. When the load is done and I only need an additional five minutes the dryer does not have this feature. Otherwise the dryer is great. It is the quietest appliance that I have ever owned. The buzzer is the only noise that hear when the load is done. Gas keeps the bill down.
