Hot Point 3 Cycle Heavy Duty Large Capacity Dryer (model # DLB155ORALWH)
I purchased this Hot Point 3 Cycle Heavy Duty Large Capacity clothes dryer several years ago and sadly to say, I am not happy with it.
I chose this specific clothes dryer model because it has great features. You have the choice of three different cycles. You can pick a low, normal, or a no heat setting.
You also have the choice of drying permanent pressed clothing, knit clothing, or regular clothing loads. It's supposed to be high capacity and while the inner drum is plenty big, I don't think it's very much larger than other clothes dryers.
For the first year I had the clothes dryer, it did a great job. I couldn't have been happier with it. Then one night, I had been drying a load of clothes and the dryer been stopped for at least an half hour. I started to smell something getting hot, like a metal or plastic smell. I looked all around and then realized the smell was coming from the clothes dryer! The clothes dryer had stopped but the dial was still running.
In other words, the heat was still running but the dryer had stopped rotating the drum or making any noise. It had sat there getting hotter and hotter, it was so hot that I could not touch the dryer with my bare hands!
I have no idea what caused this and the cost of repair would be outrageous, so now I am shopping for a new dryer. I truly believe this one is a fire hazard and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
