This dryer is wonderful for a first time dryer buyer. I bought this with a Maytag washing machine when I bought my first set. It is a great dryer and I had no issues with it the whole time I owned it. My mother now has it and she loves it as well. It did not cost too much and it fit nicely with the washing machine in my small home. The dryer fit a lot of clothes into it; I never had to worry about there not being enough room for a full load. Also, it was an energy saver so that really helped my electric bill. The design of this dryer was simple and I liked that it was really easy to use. It did not have a lot of unnecessary settings on it, which was perfect for me! If you are a first time dryer buyer, then this is the one I would recommend. It is a low cost and efficient dryer that you will not be disappointed with. Load Capacity This dryer is big enough for a large size load of clothes and it will definitely get all of them dry in one go.
