CNET First Look
Kenmore's 69133 dryer has plenty of speed, room, and good looksThe Kenmore 69133 dryer powers through lots of wet laundry quickly and looks great doing it.
[MUSIC] The first thing you're gonna notice about this Kenmore dryer, is that it is very sleek and modern looking. It has capacitive controls, which engage in a feather like touch. There's actually No physical buttons. That may not be your cup of tea, but it's definitely modern and very cool. Another feature I like about this dryer is that it has a large eight point eight cubic foot of capacity, so that means you can put in a ton of clothes and do it all at once. This dryer processes clothes very quickly, that means shorter cycle times and less wait for your dry clothes. It definitely processes clothes faster than other dryers we've seen. So there are definitely things I don't like about this dryer. Number one is that the controls are mounted on the back. That means you can't put other units on top of it and you can't even put this unit on top of a pedestal accessory to save some space or to create more storage space in your laundry room Room. And for this price, you're paying $1,100 for this machine, you'd expect it to come with more features, and cycles, and speciality modes. Right now you're getting 9, which is pretty good, but not as good as the 14 or even more you see on other machines. So this dryer makes sense if you want speed and short cycle times above all else. But, if you wanna save space in your laundry room by stacking it on top of other units or putting it on a pedestal, definitely pass this guy up. [SOUND]
