Tjkru 7/30/2020

Performs well and seems to clean to standard. Has tons of functions and love the steam option from washer to dryer. Only issue is the amount of noise and movement on the floors. With the price paid for washer and dryer this should not be an issue.

This is the dryer you are looking for

Rider138 7/22/2020

If you want a dryer that is well built and does it all this is it. After an exhaustive search of many dryers this one came out on top because it's a solid, well built machine with outstanding features. Nothing feels cheap like so many others, including high end machines, felt. The features have everything you could want and then some. I know not everyone will care about the WiFi connect features but it was easy to connect and works as advertised. This unit may be on the higher price range but it's worth every penny knowing you have a better made machine than others in its category! You won't be disappointed.

So Quick, but So Gentle!

Lin46 7/21/2020

I'm thrilled by how quickly my clothes dry ( thanks to the strong spin cycle of the washer!)! I appreciate how gentle the cycles are on all my clothes, from lingerie to heavy winter socks. Every item is perfectly dry; I no longer need to put a few thick items back in the dryer to finish drying them, as I had to with my old dryer. Much less wrinkling!

Jmh TOO 7/20/2020

I never thought I would be the guy to spend so much on a washer and dryer! But I'm now that guy! Yes they are a bit pricey, but these are beautiful machines that make doing laundry no longer a chore but an adventure! They both have WiFi connections that make the transition from the washer to the dryer seamless. They really get the job done with a ton of settings that I've yet to all use. The App is nice to have and assists in keeping me on top of my laundry! Don't think twice about it. Get these beauties and elevate your laundry space instantly! They are so large that my King sized bedding fits with plenty of room to spare. No more laundromat trips to wash the oversized bedding!! You will not be unhappy!

Jays66amc 7/20/2020

had difficulty at first cause the delicates were still soaking wet, so I tried a different setting and then it was way too hot but now I think I have it figured out. For all other loads I had no issues but the delicates took some figuring out. The app leaves a lot to be desired though.

Teriffic features

Mary_M 7/19/2020

Had to wait a month+ for dryer installation but it was well worth the wait. I especially like the steam feature that eliminates wrinkles if you forget to remove your load quickly. This is the first front loader set that I've ever purchased and the stacking feature opened up significant space in a small laundry room.The 7.8 Cu' greatly reduces the number of loads and the blue color adds awesome character to my room. The built-in features take the guesswork out of doing laundry.

Seems to take a long time on each major setting

3judy 7/17/2020

Its big and beautiful but seems to need a second run too often...I find damp clothes fairly often. Also, I have long-haired cats and I find their hair still on the clothes and loose at the area around the filter instead of sucked inside it. Didnt have that problem with my previous set. For pet owners Id be cautious. With that caveat Id recommend it.

We recently purchased the washer and dryer and are pleased. The WiFi function is a wonderful feature. We also love that you can preload detergent rather than needing to every cycle. We also purchased the drawers which were a great Addison and allow for a lot of storage. Can't beat that beautiful blue either.

Bartman83 7/13/2020

This dryer has been a blessing. The features are great, it's quiet, and everything has been coming out really well, and not bunched up with wrinkles. I really love the connect feature to our phones as well, If I'm out it will let us know when the dryer will be done and we can add time before we get home to insure things will be fresh when we get back. Excellent design and great color as well.

Hesley 7/9/2020

The dryer dries the clothes very well. I like the feature that via wifi, the dryer can detect the settings based on what the washing machine setting is. The only thing that needs work is when you use the wrinkle-free feature; it adds too much water. You would have to put the clothes back for another drying cycle.
