Frigidaire Gallery Series Heavy Duty Dryer
(Tazewell, VA USA)
Over the years,(30 to be exact)my husband and I have owned a number of dryers. He used to be an appliance repairman, and we often used what someone traded in. Being a newly wed couple, at first the money was tight. So, we used what we had. Most of them were GE brand, some Frigidaire, even had a Crosley at one time.
But the one we own now, is the Frigidaire Gallery Series, Heavy Duty Dryer. It is the companion to the Frigidaire Front Load Washer. The price was reasonable as well. We believe that "you get what you pay for". This is by far, the best set we have ever owned. The dryer dries in about 1/2 the time, it seems. The range of temperature settings, and cycles are very beneficial.
We have no problems out of it, and have had it over 2 years now. I have one son still at home, so there is 3 of us here, and the dryer gets used a lot. With the drying time being less, it is easy on the electricity bill also. It has a buzzer that goes off before the clothes stop, so that I can get them out and they will be wrinkle free.
The setting I use most often is on medium heat, normal dry. That cycle takes about 50 minutes. Depending on the load size, that will completely dry the clothes. The drum is large enough to hold a comforter with ease. This dryer is by far, the best one I have ever owned. Some days it goes no stop, if I am doing bed linens, and draperies.
On an average day, I do at least 4 loads of laundry. If the weather permits, I will put them outside on the clothes line, but if not, I use the dryer.
