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.

Wish I had bought sooner

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!

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.

Love it!

I am comparing this with an old dryer and it dries in a fraction of the time---I would have bought this some time ago if I new how much quicker it would dry!
