No-frills meets superb drying power

Dryers
[MUSIC] This Kenmore dryer may not look like much, but it packs a surprising amount of clothes drying power. In a matter of fact, it's one of the best performing dryers we've ever tested. First off, this dryer definitely will dry clothes very quickly. Has lots of power and it can move a lot of moisture from wet loads. In no time. Also, it's simple to use. The controls are very basic. It has just mechanical controls and not much text or labels to read. So, it's pretty easy to operate. And you get all that power performance for a very low price. We're talking $600. That's a lot less than many dryers on the market and they don't even dry anywhere near as well. The design is old-school, but old-school isn't always good. Case in point, this machine has a very small door, it's hard to get in and out. There's also a very clunky lint trap on the top of the machine that you have to slide out and it's very Awkward. Don't expect any fancy features either, this dryer is as basic as it gets. There are no steam modes, or special cycles, or anything like that. This dryer essentially dries clothes, and that's about it. [BLANK_AUDIO]
