I am not terribly picky when it comes to drying machines. This one is great for my busy active family and does a great job with getting clothes, towels, linens, etc dry pretty efficiently. Now if I have a full load of clothes, which is about 90 percent of the time- The dress shirts do come out with wrinkles and pants as well. But, if done in a smaller load then they come out almost wrinkle free. It is a very reliable, durable machine that I have had for over 5 years and no complaints at all. I do laundry a min. of twice a week with 4 kids and this machine has kept up with the demands we place on it. I can not write on efficiency but over all it does a great job. I would strongly recommend to any family and easy to find good deals!
