In 2011, I moved into my current home and the previous owners had left their washer and dryer behind - which I was more than happy with... until I saw the state of the dryer. Opening the door the first time, I thought I was looking into a black hole. This thing was so old the coating had worn off the inside of the drum. I was hesitant to put my clothes in there at all... but I did, as a new dryer was fairly low on my list of priorities if I had one that technically worked, even if it wasn't aesthetically pleasing.Well, this past August when that dryer finally bit the dust I was glad to find this model - it is excellently and frequently reviewed across several websites and is a straightforward machine. I don't need something with a sweater dryer, steam dry, or something that promises to do my taxes. As a matter of fact, this machine has more features and settings than my 25+ year old machine that broke down - but just enough to be useful - like extended tumble and easily selectable temperature settings. The capacity is excellent, it has no problem efficiently drying blankets and towels, and manages even a large load of clothing with ease.Thanks for a well-designed appliance that gets the job done!

We bought this because it's the closest new model to our old Whirlpool dryer, which gave many years of excellent service. It had a setting like the The "energy preferred" setting leaves clothes damp, especially mixed loads. We called the Abt service department about this, and apparently it is a frequent question. Easily solved by increasing the so called "level of dryness" to "more dry," but one wonders why Whirlpool bothers with a useless setting. It isn't energy efficient, either. The clothes have to be dry. The longer you have to run the unit to do that, the more energy, both gas and electric, you use. This looks like a "feature" required by the ad wonks, rather than something from an engineer. It's not that the dryer doesn't work. It does, but the control labeling "energy preferred" is just there as a selling point, not as a functional setting. Ignore it and you'll be happy.However, once you learn its quirks, it works well. I'm saying I'd recommend it to a friend, but with the caveat above.

Dryer is everything we hoped it would be.

I bought this clothes dryer a month ago. It is very efficient and works great in the automatic mode (preferred dry) always leaving clothes dry in less time than expected.
Doesn't dry very quickly.
from Detroit, Michigan
It seems to run much longer than other dryers I've had. I keep smelling gas when I go downstairs.On many occasions it doesn't fully dry my clothes in the required length of time.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Minneapolis, MN
Been rather pleased with our upgrade from our old dryer. Much more efficient and gets things dry in a fraction of the time!
from Reisterstown, Maryland
I haven't used it very much since I bought it. What I like most about it is the multiple choices of cycles it has on it.
This dryer just replaced a 22 year old gas dryer that was by a large family. This one works great and I hope it lasts as long as the last one!
