Drying performance:This score combines performance on three types of laundry loads of different sizes and fabric mixes: A 12-lb. load, predominantly cotton, representing a family's large weekly load; an 8-lb. load of cotton/polyester blend clothing; and a 3-lb. load of synthetic delicates, women's pajamas, nightgowns, bras and underwear.
Capacity:Among the models we tested, drum volume varied from about 6 to 8.0 cu. ft.
Convenience:For this measurement, we judged controls and ergonomics, such as ease of loading and unloading, servicing the lint filter, whether the door could clear a tall basket, and whether the machine has a raised edge to contain spills.

Complete Failure Too Soon
Very Long Cycle Time
Family of 6 this dryer got daily use, performance in the first year was fine - cycle time was long but similar to the washing machine. About 13 months after purchase clothes would not dry and occasionally made loud squealing noise. Technician came to service and he said all the bearings were bad, fan drive belt was bad, fan drive pulley was bad. With an extended service plan, the company decided it was better to reimburse the initial cost than to fix. Very disappointing to have this unit fail after only 13 months of use.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
