Frigidaire Commercial Heavy Duty Dryer
by Kim Brunson
We bought our new Frigidaire clothes dryer about one month ago, to match and go along with our new Frigidaire washing machine. I love the washing machine, but am not as pleased with the dryer.
Frigidaire is an awesome manufacturer, and I highly recommend them. Maybe it is just this particular dryer, but it just does not dry as well as I would like it to.
This happens with the larger loads, like a load of towels or jeans. However, that is why I purchased a heavy duty, commercial type dryer rather than a regular one.
My partner and I do laborious work at times and that means lots of jeans in the laundry. We also take lots of showers so that means lots of towels.
This dryer is not bad, but sometimes it takes two to three times of drying for 40 minutes to get towels done.
I have even tried starting out with the longest setting, 70 minutes. That doesn't work, either. So I cannot completely recommend this dryer as one that is heavy duty or commercial.
I think it works as well as a regular dryer. The setting are air fluff, knits/delicates (lo heat), colors (medium) and whites (high). There is a drum light which is very nice. I use timed dry exclusively but will try fluff or lighter cycles when I need them.
If you have regular laundry that is not terribly special and you need a good dryer, this is a decent choice. I just would not say it is as good as it is reported to be. Use small loads only, and keep it on the high heat setting. We bought this dryer at Home Depot.
