It fits! It works!

Lisa 9/25/2017

I had an old GE dryer that finally decided to go to "dryer heaven". I bought this dryer plus a new Whirlpool washer too. It is great! There are so many different drying options that were not available on my older Dryer. Furthermore, I am so grateful that there was a great Dryer available as a "Flat back" design. I have a small townhouse that cannot fit the newer full size dryers. Although this option costs more for this feature it is needed if you have a spacing issue in your laundry room.

Yes, I recommend this product

J.P 9/14/2017

Love it---Had an old one that worked that I fixed a couple of times---but wish I had bought this sooner because it drys so fast! I just wish I had bought one that was a little more quiet like my new whirlpool washing machine!

It's a dryer!

Mike C 9/12/2017

Used dryer once. It is not a top load dryer (never seen one!!!). Would like to have a screen which tell me how much time is left for drying, but seems to do an adequate job.

It is fine. It is a little noisy, but I could not accommodate a dryer any deeper than "27 in my space.

Yes, I recommend this product

nice machine!

Mark 2/14/2017

Dryer works well and dries the clothes in record time also seems to be more gentle on the clothes. The only thing I don't like about it is it's noisier than my last machine.

Dries clothes quickly.

Rick 1/19/2017

Bought this dryer two weeks ago along with the matching washer. It's noisier than my old dryer. But it dries clothes in about half the time. So far I am happy with it.

Fast Drying Time!

Busy Mom 12/14/2016

I bought this dryer a month ago because of the tight space that I had to work with in my home. It's the only dryer that has dimensions that fit! Even though it is plain looking, it has really high end features such as wrinkle prevention. I am impressed with this machine. It's a little loud but definitely worth the price.

We are very happy with the dryer. It seems to perform all the function well. The wrinkle shield "feature" actually somewhat annoying.

Great Dryer

Dave 11/8/2016

I needed a full size dryer with minimal depth and this unit fit the bill. It also is impressive how fast it dries. Along with the matching washer I was able to find a very nice set at reasonable prices.

Full Size Dryer Fits In Minimum Space

Laundry King 9/11/2016

Our laundry room is really a laundry closet that requires a flat back dryer to close the door on the "laundry room". Dryer fits like a charm and performs so much better than the competitor's model it replaced.
