Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Dryer We have had this dryer for over 4 years, it has been a great appliance. Dries quickly, does not wrinkle up clothes and has many settings, including turning the beep at the end of the cycle to off. There have been no problems, the quietest, most trouble free dryer I have owned. 12/31/14
