Good selection on drying options

JDG 2/22/2017

We bought this dryer a month or so ago. It has been working very nicely, the drying options are a nice feature. We do miss the light with this model and the controls are a little hard to see in certain light on the dark surface. Overall the machine is nice looking and working very well.

Great dryer!

Pierce 2/13/2017

There is a slight learning curve with Normal dry vs other options. The larger loads would still be wet if set to normal. I realized for the larger loads I needed to select bulky and all was well. The dryer works great and looks great. I am very happy with my purchase.

Love this dryer :)

Trish 2/10/2017

At first I went with Samsung for my new washer and dryer set, but after 3 new dryer's failing to work I sent those back and ordered this set. I'm SO glad I did! Not only does it look nicer, but it worked perfectly as soon as I plugged it in! It dries the clothes evenly and I love the steam option! My only complaints: it doesn't come with the drying rack (You have to purchase separately) and the buttons are SUPER sensitive! But overall I'm very pleased!
