When our old dryer broke we limped along using the laundry mat to dry our clothes for about a month. We had seen our future dryer at Home Depot and were set on getting this one because of the 1. Simple controls, basic operation, and the price. Of all the dryers I have had in my existance I like this one the best. We are planning on getting the matching washer. ( Our old washer is on its last legs)

Love it.
