Product Description

Kenmore 3.4 cu. ft. Electric Dryer: Compact Convenience

With the Kenmore 3.4 cu. ft. dryer 8472, you get more drying power in less space. The compact 24 inch design is perfect for small spaces, allowing the unit to fit comfortably in crowded living spaces. Innovative features such as the Auto Dry save you money and time by drying your clothes more efficiently. The weight-based sensors adjust the drying time of each load to deliver the minimal amount of heat and power needed to get the job done. An end-of-cycle signal alerts you when clothes are dry, so they don't linger and allow wrinkles to set into the fabric.

  • Auto dry cycles use an integrated thermostat to control temperatures and sense when fabrics are dry to help eliminate heat damage and take the guesswork out of drying.
  • A quick way to relax wrinkles and refresh fabrics in minutes, the Touch Up cycle sends warm air through clothes while gently tumbling, so you can slip them on and head out.
  • A compact portable design delivers the same powerful drying features of larger machines, while allowing this Kenmore to easily move when you need it to.

I bought it used at the Salvation Army Thrift Store 25 years ago. I have used it for 25 years with no problems whatsoever. I have the washer too.

Bad Design
I was surprised by the other reviews on this dryer. I had quite a different experience. Bought this with the 2.1 cu ft portable washer (see my review on that one) and was just as surprised with the poor quality of the washer, with respect to other reviews. One load of clothes took EXTREMELY long to dry, probably one and a half hours or more. I'm a techy, so I knew that a 120v machine won't be as fast or as warm as a 240v machine, but this machine did not even get warm when running (it got a little warm when the clothes were dry.) My wife kept asking me if I was sure the heat was on. I think the main problem with this machine is the bad aero-dynamic design. The heated air comes into the tumbler from the rear on the left and goes out the rear of the tumbler on right, so the heated air simply bypasses the bulk of the clothes before exiting the machine. This is very inefficient, and most of the dry heat was probably lost to the outdoors through my exhaust vent. Very light loads may not be effected by this problem as much, since the incoming warmed air has less obstacles causing it to "shortcut" past the clothes to the exhaust port. Another problem is that the exit port is also the lint clean-out, so you have to reach inside to the rear of the tumbler and pull it out, snap it apart, clean the lint inside it, snap it back together, and blindly fit it back into the rear of the tumbler. Well, not blindly, if you want to stick your head inside the tumbler to see what you are doing. I might add that, inside the tumbler, when it was not running for a short while, mine gave off a pretty strong "fish-oil" paint reek (if you've ever worked with rustoleum metal paint, you know what I mean.) This might have gone away with time, and did not seem to make the clothes smell likewise. We finally returned it with the washer, and the Sears Manager and the Salespeople were very nice and sympathic to my disappointment with both machines. The manager met me halfway on some of my loss. Sears has the best customer service.

EXCELLENT DRYER

My dryer was delivered today. My first thought was that it was so adorable. The perfect size for small spaces. I thought if it works as well as it is cute, I'll be a hamper camper. And that I am. It is actually quite roomy inside. I have the Kenmore portable washer. The dryer holds a load, which is perfect. I dried 2 queen-sized sheets. I let the auto/normal dry cycle run, which is an hour cycle. Sheets were well-dried and I'm confident I could have checked after 30-40 minutes and they would have been dry. I also could have put a few pillowcases with the load, but they weren't ready yet. Dryer gets hot inside but not out. Yet another plus. I purchased an expandable 10 inch high screen, placed it in my window frame, and cut a hole in it to vent the dryer out the window. Worked perfectly. I take the vent hose (store it upright in a corner) when I'm not using the dryer so that I can keep it flush with the wall. I LOVE MY DRYER :-).

I would recommend this product to a friend.

IT is a very very poor dryer. you can only dry three items at a time and even then you have to let it dry for at lease one hour. Do not buy!

Decent portable, small wheels

Rated the portable washer the same. The dryer has very small wheels. Its worth taking a wheel out and getting a larger one if this dryer has to be rolled much. For the price a decent size caster should be on these. They screw in, just watch the length of the new screw on a new caster, both for the dryer and Especially the washer.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Yes, I'd buy another...

I'm on my third one...  I purchased my first one in the early 90's, then sold it when I moved.   I used my second one for six years.  (I'm sure it would have lasted much longer, but when I needed a new part, I opted to replace the whole thing.)   I replaced that one in 2008 and it's still going strong today.  I dry about 5 loads a week and give it no special care at all, other than making sure the filter is cleaned after each load.  It's very hard working, dependable and reliable.  I would not hesitate to buy another.    By: H.F.

terrific dryer

This is a terrific dryer. At 3 and a half cubic feet it may sound like it's small, but it handles sizeable loads very efficiently, quietly, and quickly. It's great to be freed of having to run to the building laundry room a couple of times for each dryer load. If we were able to put portable washers in our apartments (in my building we're not) I'd buy the portable washer to go with it without hesitation.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The Kenmore portable drier is efficient and reliable.

We have owned Kenmore washers and driers for more than 40 years and have been more than satified with their performance. The new drier is all that we expected. Our new portable washer does not measure up with past Kenmore compact portable washers. I believe it is the computerized aspect of its operation. It did not work at all when we brought it home. The service that was provided under the warranty was exceptional but the operation of the washer will take some getting used to. The drier is, as usual, efficient and reliable.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I am satisfied, so happy to skip the public laundromat

If you are bying this on-line, just keep in mind that portable means compact. I bought this dryer because the apartment  where I live only has 120V outlets, and 98% of dryers requirea 240v power outlet that uses up allot more energy. So I already knew it would take longer tot dry the clothes , and it does , it usually has to run for 60 to 75 minutes to get the clothes as dry as I like. Plus you can only can a small batch  at a time, so whenever I do 1 load in the washer machine I have to split it into 2 loads in this dryer, but when you are doing  your laundry at HOME, whats another hours anyways, in my case was either this dryer or going to the public laundry-room,  and so I am happy as a kid.  Even if I have to spend 4 hours doing my laundry at home, its worth because after all I'm home. Just make sure you have a spot near a window because you will need to purchase an aluminum flexible dryer duct /exhaust, so the hot air can directed outside your home, otherwise you will have dust/ lint flowing around in your house and thats not healthy. overall I am very happy with this dryer , but as with all things new you must get  used  it.
