One of the main advantages of this unit is the three-way venting installation, which makes installation convenient, allowing users to install from the back, right, or the bottom. Another advantage is the extremely quiet performance of the unit, allowing you to place the unit anywhere in the house, even on the second floor. The unit comes with the Energy Star seal allowing users to save as much as 10% in energy bills.

The unit is also stackable, which means that you can save up on space. The compact design makes this dryer perfect for small rooms. Finally, it dries efficiently, finishing up on a full load within 50 minutes. Smaller loads such as a load of towels can take as short as 20 minutes.


One of the major disadvantages of this unit is that it only comes in one color. Orange rust stains tend to be more easy to spot in lighter colors of dryer units compared to dryers in black and other dark colors. Even with the noise reduction feature, the unit is still noisy. Some users place a pad of felt under the unit to deaden the noise.
