Rated 3 out of 5 by from Compact good dryer I'm using this dryer half a year. Works good. The main concern I've chosen that model because it is compact and has duct out

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features We bought this a few months ago and it took me a little bit to get use to front loaders as this is our first, but this machine is incredible. Our laundry has never smelled sooo good !! The sanitzing feature is the bomb.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Watch your sheets! I like the appearance of the dryer, and it it genarally good at drying my clothes. The exception is my sheets. I have a queen size bed, and wash the complete set together. They keep getting rolled up in the dryer, so the sheet and pillowcases on the inside of the roll are still damp when the load should be all dried. I end up stopping the dryer every ten minutes, get the load out, seperate it, and then put it back, piece by piece. But for towels, shorts, jeans, tops, underwear, etc it works just fine.
