What can I say about my old Kelvinator? She is definitely old, lol, about 15 years old, to be exact. We got her for free from a friend of ours who worked for a big moving company. My clothes dryer has been a very dependable one. It runs good, dries the clothes super fast, and does not really cost me that much in electricity. (Did an experiment where I hung my clothes out to dry half the month, and did not see that much of a change.)
We have only had to work on it once because it made this god awful noise, and we had to put in a new idler pulley for the belt to run on. We thought it best that we went ahead and replaced the belt since it had a little crack in it, and now she runs like new again.
I honestly do not know if Kelvinator even makes dryers anymore, but if they did I would be going to buy one when the time comes to get a new one. Maybe I’ll just keep this ole clothes dryer to see how much longer she could run. You never know, she might outlive my husband.
