I purchased this dryer over a year ago and I have to say it was the best purchase I ever made. The dryer is easy to operate, dries clothes faster than any dryer I've owned and is so easy to operate my 9 year old can operate it. None of what is said about the negative reviews has occurred since I've owned this dryer. I researched every dryer you could think of online and for the price this dryer beat the rest of them out. If your thinking about a quality dryer at an affordable price, this is the dryer I would recommend.
I was skeptical on buying the set due to some of the reviews. But we decided on this set due to having to have a washer/dryer by the weekend, it had a drying rack inside, and my husband liked the steam cartridge on the top of the dryer instead of splitting it off of the washer water line, less chance for leaks in the long run. We did pay to have it installed, and I am glad I did. The installer told us to have the front feet in the dryer a little lower than the back, you cant even notice it, but its because the heat sensor is in the front and the clothes need to hit that to let the dryer know if they are dry and to stop early. Also for the steam, do not used distilled water use tap, we were told by 2 people to use it but the manual specifically says not to because the sensor to tell you if you need more water in the container will not work and then you can burn your motor up if its trying to steam and they is no water in there. I steamed 3 khaki pants this morning, took 20 minutes, and there was NOT one wrinkle in any of them and NO water spots! One container full will get you several steam cycles, I barely used any. Love this cycle because I hate to iron. Love the santize options since one of my children has allergies. Love the blue light display, the turn on chime, dome light, dryer rack, and how although settings are predetermined I can up the drying time or heat. I also like how it shows me how much time is left on the washer and dryer and both are quiet and we have a crawl space below. It has cut my drying time in 1/2 compared to my last dryer.. I sometimes had to dry a load of towels twice and now I only dry them once for about 54 minutes and there are twice or three times as many in there! We absolutely love this set and we are so happy we bought them and we love the metallic color! Also we had to set it out from the wall a little bit to account for the dryer vent and the 3 inches extra that sticks out on the back, we are going to minimize the chance of clothes falling behind them by putting a shelf behind there to put detergent on. You can not go wrong on this set!
I purchased the washing machine and dryer then read reviews. A few reviews had me doubting the purchase and I was extremely worried I'd end up with dirty, dingy or wrinkled clothing. That did not happen. I am very pleased with the washing machine and dryer. I've washed and dried dirty towels, bulky beading, delicate clothing, etc., and everything came out the way it should; clean and hardly any wrinkles. Both machines have lived up to my expectations and they were very high because I have owned Sears Kenmore Elite products for about 20 years. Again, let me restate that I believe both products are great. With the dryer, the items come out dry and I don't have any wrinkle problems. There is both a special "towel" and "bulky bedding" option that works great. Plus, even though I have not used this feature, the dryer has a steam stetting to get rid of wrinkles. And with the bulky bedding option on both the washing machine and the dryer I don't have to have my comforters dry cleaned. In fact, the comforters looked even better after washing and drying them than they looked from the dry cleaner. But I'm mostly pleased with the outcome of doing normal day to day laundry. I have been pleased with the outcome of every load since I first pressed the start button on the washing machine.

We bought the matching washer and both are outstanding. Lots of features and most importantly everything works great. The negative reviews seem like they were written by the competition or by somebody who just likes writing bad reviews (one said something about costing $3k...for a dryer?!?!...seems bogus to me). Love the blue lights and display and it holds a TON of clothes! Seems very well built and I'm sure it will hang in there for the long haul.
I don't know why people put bad reviews for this dryer because I got both washer and dryer and its the best one out there we love it dryes real good Kenmore always been the best, this one is made by LG not cheap whirlpool.

Bought this January 2013 and within 45 days the heat stopped.Told that the thermostat stopped working. It was painful trying to get someone out to fix it. Now 4.5 months after I purchase it's not heating up again.
Recieved this washer and dryer Kenmore Elite 3/16 2013, its large and quiet but is a lousy performer. Whites are dingy and seem to get worse after each wash. The clothes from the dryer are thoroughly wrinkled every time.Called in the technician he stated ,'those new products are a bunch of ****'. I agree.I Want to return them,i'm still under 60 day warranty.Sears has offered to exchange but i will have to pay much more ,because i got them on sale. If you like clean clothes dont buy this product.
Just got my new Kenmore dryer today. I am replacing my old Kenmore dryer of 23 years. I have dryed two loads and both loads came out prefect! The 1st load was towels, alot of towels & wash cloth's, they all came out dryed. The next load was my husband's work shirt's, they too came out prefect, all were dryed and ready to be hung up for him to wear, no iron needed. I find it very easy to use. So far, I Love my new Kenmore Elite dryer, hoping it last just as long as my old one did if not longer.
