After living in an apartment for a year and a half, I was so excited to get my own washer and dryer. The prices,however, did not excite me as they had increased since we had owned a home. I had certain things I required from my dryer-I wanted the energy efficient cycle, the lint screen on top of the dryer, and the ability to turn off the signal. This dryer had all of those options. I was rather surprised at how difficult it was to get a dryer that included ALL of these. The dryer does a GREAT job of drying the clothes. It does it in a goodly amount of time, and I really like the options that I have for the different cycles. My favorite part-the lint screen. My previous dryer had it in the bottom. I never liked it. I really feel this one does a WAY better job as a result of its location.
