Meets all expected functions. Drys effectively and quickly and is easy to operate. Only issue was during that SEARS installers had a tricky time hooking up the unit to the power cord and connecting the vent but once done the system works like a charm.
We initally thought these machines would be of low quality due to their size and price but we were so happy to find out that was not the case. We like them much better than the ones we bought in 2003. The design has been improved and their efficiency is wonderful. Keep providing the 36" tall machines!
Just purchased this dryer based upon other reviews - especially the one that stated our sheets would not become tangled into ball formations. That review was true. Not used to untangled dry sheets after the first run through. Haven't tried the wrinkle guard yet but looking forward to it. Install went fast. Didn't like the on-line purchase process however. I could only choose between 220V plug OR left opening door which left me no choice but to get the door opening the wrong way. UGH. But it drys! I have owned Kenmore all more life. Wouldn't/couldn't see purchasing any other appliance.
The door latch broke less than one month after dryer purchased. I will never purchase another Kenmore product. This is a poorly manufactured dryer and I am very disappointed the door latch broke so quickly. I do not recommend this dryer to anyone.
I purchased this dryer almost months ago. I was a little hesitant because of some of the reviews saying it wouldn't dryer very well. I have to that I love this dryer! It drys everything very fast and for the price was a great value! I paid $400 because I was able to get it 50% off plus I typed in a coupon code for an additional $50 off and free delivery. Very satisfied with Kenmore appliances the last set I had lasted 12 years and was still going strong I just wanted to switch to a front load system.
Purchased this for a gift at a great price. It looks and is quality made, looks and feels like a higher end product.
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.
