    Having only used my new drier for a few months, I won't speak to it durability, but I will say it's solidly built. Also, it dries anything I put into it just fine. If you live in a dry climate or have light loads like me you will probably find that it dries faster than the estimated time on the display, stopping early. The steam refresh feature is great, but know that you must wait for it to finish. If you stop it early, you'll end up with damp clothes. A feature that people seldom mention: if you leave the drier door open the light will automatically shut off, so no fear of burning out the bulb prematurely. I'm currently using the drier without the aid of drier sheets, because I heard (unofficially) that the chemicals from the sheet will coat the internal humidity sensor and mess it up. In the summer months that worked fine, maybe because I use an evap cooler to cool my house which increases the moisture in the air. In the winter months static cling has started to develop, but I'm experimenting with the settings and what materials I dry together in an effort to combat it. Beyond that everything about this dryer is excellent. There are many task specific settings. It looks as "cool" as any dryer should. The start chime is mildly entertaining. If you're looking for downsides, it could stand to be quieter, but it's not obtrusive. I can hear it in the next room down the hall, but barely on the next floor. Also, some might say the complete chime is quieter than they'd like, but I can hear it fine in the next room and I'm not so fussy with my laundry that I need to get it out of the drier immediately. So that's it, I've been quite happy with this drier and I don't think you will feel disappointed if you buy one.

    My 21-year-old washer was dying. So I decided to buy a new pair. I did research on washers but not on dryers. I understand that HE washers takes a long time to wash but drying time is shorter. NO. That is not my case. When you choose a dry setting, there is no room for modification. Clothes are not quite dry after the cycle ends. Therefore, I have to do whether timed dry or another cycle. This dryer takes longer than my 21-year-old Lady Kenmore did. I am very disappointed with its performance. This may come with a lot of special feature than my old one, but I am expecting for a dryer to dry my clothes as primary function. If it takes longer time to dry, is there any energy and money savings?

                This dryer is the first energy efficient dryer I have ever owned. I was a little concerned at first, as it is a pricy purchase, but after using it, I am quite impressed with not only the looks of it, but also how great it works. I love all the features and especially love the steam feature. I would recommend this dryer to everyone.

                    We loved our old washer and dryer for over 12 years, and I was nervous about purchasing new models. The shift from more metal parts to plastic parts is scary. But with a year of near constant use from a family of 4, this dryer has exceeded expectations I had from other consumer reviews I read during research.

                        I really like the settings, especially the steam setting, which works great on jeans. Great capacity. I do wish the alarm was a bit louder. The pleasant, light ping tends to blend into the background from the next room.

                          Bought this machine for a pretty penny and was hoping for the best. Upon getting it home it made weird noises on rotation. It was a sort of thumping and scraping. Had the repair guy out 3 times and he finally decided we needed a new drum. Got that in and it makes a quieter but different noise that we are putting up with. Otherwise it dries well.
