This is a nice intermediate dryer and has lots of good features and fits well into a small or larger family . Load Capacity I was very pleasantly surprised at the amount of clothes this dryer would hold. I was not used to such a large capacity and I am thrilled I can dry so much at one time. Performance Great performance with this dryer. Dries the clothes to perfection and no lingering stiffness. I like the sensor feature and my dryers in the past did not have this. I looked for this option when I was considering models and that is why I did choose this Whirpool. Ease of Use Very easy to use and the dials are very clear. The drop down door instead of the side opening door makes it easier to fit in my wash room. I love this as the side closing doors sometimes were swinging shut on me and I love this feature and it was one that actually sold me on the dryer. Durability Seems to be very well put together, but only have had it six months, so time will tell. Design NIce design even though it is plain. This is what I wanted and do not the fancy frills.
