Product Reviews
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features and a beautiful design. I really love my dryer, although I do have one concern. My clothes come out wrinkled even when removing them immediately after the cycle ends. This aggravates me, but I am learning to tweek my settings and the results are getting better. Over all, I am in love with this product. I also wish the opptional pedistal wasn't so expensive. I simply could not justify its price, so I did not purchase it. 9/28/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for family of 4. This pair is awesome, it saves time and works flawless. we tried using some cheap softner that may have been old and it clogged, but improved when we started using a good brand. They look great, work great and just hope they stand the test of time. 12/16/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Machine!!! What a Great Machine!!! I love the capacity! On the bulky setting you do have to dry more than just one cycle. Not sure how to use all the settings yet but I am learning!!! 10/24/11
Rated 4 out of 5 by love the design I was told the clothes should be pretty much dry when they come out of the washer and thier not, then I have to dry them for 50min. also i am not happy how long all the wash settings take. they are all over 40 min. accept the quick wash, and if you have too many clothes in it it will push it to over 40 mins. 9/27/12
