    One common complaint is that drying takes way too long. This could be because of the larger load which naturally requires more drying time.

    Even with the EvenHeat Technology that evenly disperses heat in the drum, the drying time is still too long for most users. Another common complaint is that the unit only comes in white, not very good for those who do not like to see rust and water stains on the exterior of the unit. A black finish is often the desired color by most users.
