Huge 7.0 cu ft capacity can handle larger items with ease.
Very fast and efficient--can completely dry large items in a timely manner.
Excellent price point for the size and performance.
Very quiet performer even while tumbling.
Wrinkle Shield works very well, keeps clothing looking smooth.
Flip-down front-loading door makes loading in clothing very easy.
Sturdy build quality--doesn't shake or rattle at all while in use, feels like it can take some serious abuse.
Not as energy efficient as more recent models.
