(Columbus, OH )
-easy to use
-replacement parts are cheap Cons:
-very basic features
-older model This dryer has run beautifully for
Had it for almost 10 years now. It has survived three moves; from 2 apartments to our home. It originated from my mother in law who has upgraded all her appliances to newer, sleeker models.
I'm not very tech savvy so I like my appliances to come with basic, easy to understand features. I've never had to replace any part on this dryer until now. The drum glides have worn away which creates a loud scratching noise when I run the dryer.
This issue also has caused mysterious brown markings on some of my clothes and in some instances has ?eaten? holes. I was able to find the replacement glides for $20 online and will attempt to replace them myself before I hire a professional repair man.
The other issue I?ve encountered is the dryer knob has broken off. The replacement knob is around $10 to $20 to replace and looks like an easy fix. Overall the dryer has served its purpose and stood the test of time. We have 4 people in our family including 2 very messy children so you can imagine the heaps of laundry we produce every week.
I would recommend this dryer to anyone who is looking for something durable and basic. I can honestly say that I will use this dryer until it finally dies on me which doesn?t look like it?s going to be anytime soon.
