This dryer is the perfect size for our small laundry space. And it allows me to reach the back easier than a standard size dryer. My husband loves that it did not have to be vented. Awesome dryer.

I really like it. ItÕs ventless and you need to change the water compartment after every wash. The one thing that concerns me itÕs in the panel it has water condensed in it.

Purchased BOTH Washer and Dryer August 2019 began malfunctioning in February 2021. Whenever the washer has to spin during the rince cycle, the noise is extremely loud which meant that the drum and/or rotor was bad. The dryer STOPPED working!. Power comes on but no spinning to dry the clothes. Their warranty Customer Service is horrible. Reps and assigned Techs are rude and will cancel dates and expect you to accept. I will NEVER purchase this product again.

Excellent job at drying a wide range of clothing material. Easy to clean lint trap. Have to leave the laundry room door open to evacuate the heat created in the drying process. We really wish an accompanying pedestal was available for purchase.
