Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful dryer!! This dryer is great. It is very quiet, very efficient and has a sensor that works. You can count on your clothes being as dry as what you select. The wrinkle free setting that tumbles your clothes occasionally until you take them out is very handy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quiet dryer After reading several other reviews about this dryer we decided to purchase it through Lowe's who were having a great Memorial Day sale. The dryer has been a good one--we have had issue with a loud screeching noise when the drum turns at times--had to get that fixed. Overall, it dries quickly and quietly. We like the simplicity of the buttons and knobs--just push and go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dryer gets the job done! This dyer has all the features I was looking for, sensor and easy care cycle. I like the wrinkle guard and the option to time the dry. It is also very easy to use in your routine laundry tasks, while having the options for extra ordinary laundry needs. I also like the feel of the drum. I have notice that our clothes are not damaged much with this dryer. The only flaw I see is the flimsy door. As long as you use the door handle to open and close, it is not a problem. I was use to just grabbing the corner of the door on my previous dryer. When I continued with that bad habit, it felt like the door might bend. I have since learned to only use the door handle and it has been fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good appliance. We did a fair amount of research before deciding on this make and model. We like the controls, and especially the inside drum light. We also wanted one that had the lint screen inside the dryer door and not out the top. The only concern I have IS the lint trap. It is a real flimsy piece of plastic that I don't expect will last very long and is harder to clean that the screen mesh we had in our old model. Other than that, it works great.
