Got this dryer at a discount with a rebate. We were replacing a 22 year old Maytag that gave us great service. I have been in the steel industry for over 32 years and have worked with different Whirlpool plants as part of that. They are sticklers are quality and service about their raw materials, processing and their final products. Buying American made quality is important to me. Having insight to how their products are made helped me make the decision to purchase this Whirlpool appliance. There are a lot of choices out there. I did a lot of research and made the right choice for our family.

Works great.
