This budget Kenmore dryer has freakish speed

Don't judge this rather staid looking Kenmore 65132 Dryer by its appearance. The laundry machine may not look like much but it powers through laundry loads with shocking swiftness.

More than a simple white box

There's nothing exciting about the Kenmore 65132 dryer's boring design but once it fires up it really flexes its muscle.

The back panel has gentle curves

On the back of the dryer is its control panel, which sports a mild curve.

One main dial controls it all

The main cycle knob sets all the dryer's major functions.

This door feels too smal

With an odd rectangular shape and door that doesn't open all the way, the drum opening feels small.

Be careful when loading this machine

Since it's smaller than other dryers I've used, it was easy to bang my fingers against the door's edges if I wasn't careful.

Yank it out and slam it back

The old-school lint screen takes some force to pull out and slam back into place.
