The control board tends to fail just past warranty. Very costly to repair and you will be out hundreds of dollars . First symptom is beeping and flashing buttons requiring reset and eventually nothing will work and your dryer is dead.
I purchased this dryer last year on Black Friday. After 4 months of hassle with sears they finally delivered it in March...however that's another story. Two days ago it stopped heating entirely and turns off 15mins into the cycle. I've dried 40 loads at most since I've had it. Between the initial hassle and breaking after such a short period of service... I deeply regret this purchase and wish I'd taken advantage of the Black Friday savings elsewhere. Thankfully(?) it broke just days before my 1 year purchase protection guarantee expired. Sears gladly and without hassle scheduled a service tech to come out to repair it 4 days from now, however, that's the only good thing I can say about my entire experience thus far. Tldr: DONT BUY ----- STOPPED WORKING AFTER ~40 LOADS.
I bought this dryer 7weeks ago and I have problems already. It stopped drying and even when the door wasnt closed the dryer kept on going until I unplugged it . I called and the service guy came in and told me it was the computer and they would have to replace it. I called customer services to say that i didnt want a refurbished dryer considering i just purchased it. Well the service Rep named Rafael told me that i should've called within the 30 days, so i said i didnt have a problem 2 weeks ago. I said that its not fair for me to have a refurbished dryer since the computer is a big deal in repairs not something simple and that i wasn't happy and he said thats how it is and if i have a problem again they would fix it again so basically i have no hope that this dryer is going to last me like my old one. I'm completely disappointed and will never buy KENMORE again or go to sears. I can't understand why should i keep a defective product that is supposed to last you in good condition for years particularly after 45 days of purchase!!
purchased this item in a set. Great bundle and good price.
Dries really good, rather quiet compared to my old dryer.
We shopped around, and this was the best deal we found. High efficiency, great style and price! Quick delivery too! I earned point for the purchase, AND I won $25 in points while using the Shop Your Way App in store!
Love my dryer. I was without a dryer for several years. Absolutely no complaints. I'd recommend it to anyone. It has some nice settings like wrinkle free and such.
Got the dryer at a great price in a Thanksgiving night doorbuster. Has performed flawlessly since I installed it in December.
I got this unit for a great deal along with its matching washer. It's simple but has moisture sensors that allow it to detect how dry the clothes are and not over-dry them. This saves energy, prevents damage, and still ensures that the load is dry when it stops. It's fairly quiet while doing it's job?about normal for a dryer. And no doubt in part because the companion washer spins so fast it leaves clothes barely damp, the dryer doesn't take nearly as long as the one it replaces. I've noticed less lint in the trap than my previous machine, indicating it and the washer are doing less damage to my clothes. And I've been thoroughly impressed with the fact that even large loads are not left bundled into a ball. My old dryer would wrap sheets up into a ball unless they were dried one sheet at a time. This dryer will handle a queen-size sheet set, two bath towels, and three throw blankets at the same time. All items get dry and nothing is balled together. The only two things I could ask for are (1) for it to dry a load in about the same time as the washer takes to wash a load?although it's actually pretty close, within 10 minutes?and (2) for a slightly more accurate estimate of how long the load will take to dry. The initial estimate is based on settings, but the actual drying time is based on moisture.
I do not overload my dryer but every load that comes out leaves several particles of clothing wet and other pieces damp. Dresses with straps or ties just rip off by getting caught and tangled on the lint tray! I had many dresses and blouses ruined by the lint tray edge protruding out. Lint tray also traps a lot of lint that I cannot reach into in order to remove. Lint trap fires are very serious and hope that I am not a future victim. Bottom line, don't buy this useless dryer unless you want wet ripped clothing.
