I love this dryer! I have no complaints!

Load Capacity
This dryer will dry everything I put in it in a very reasonable amount of time, except for my cloth diapers which require two cycles because they are so absorbent. This dryer can handle a very large load without a problem and gets everything dry.

Performance
The performance of this dryer is great. It is very efficient on energy and time.

Ease of Use
There is nothing difficult about operating this dryer. All of the settings are easy to use and understand. No need to consult the manual!

Durability
This dryer has been going for I'll bet 10 years at least for us. And it's not looking like we'll need to buy a new one any time soon. The only thing that has broken is the door covering the lint trap, but I think the people who lived in our house before us may have damaged that, so I won't count that against the manufacturer.

Design
I love the design of this dryer. I like the handle for the door being on the top of the door instead of the side. The dials are well-placed and easy to use.

This dryer is good if you are on a budget and need something that will work. The biggest issue with this dryer is that it takes much longer than most to fully dry your clothes. The best thing is the amount of heat settings and the buzzing noise when clothes are done.

Load Capacity
I have filled this bad boy all the way to the top with heavy comforters and bed sheets and it was not an issue. It took longer to dry, but it got the job done.

Performance
It could be faster, but for a working dryer at a great price, I'll take it! This machine lasted me several years and then I traded up for a faster model. Also, I love gas models, as it is much more energy efficient than electric and it helps save us money in the long run!

Ease of Use
Very easy to use. There are several different settings you can use, but it is all easy to understand and use.

Durability
Like I said, we had this model for several years and never had any issues. The only reason I do not still have it today was because I wanted a dryer that was faster.

Design
This is your typical, basic design. There is nothing fancy about this machine, but there is nothing wrong with that. I recommend this model to anyone who can't afford to spend much on a machine.

Very Dependable

By 

from Upland, CA USA

Comments about Kenmore 600 Gas Dryer:

I have a family of four and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't use my Kenmore. I am most impressed that it can handle a full sized denim comforter! I can avoid dry cleaning.

Load Capacity
Besides my denim comforter, it is really great handling heavy towel loads and loads full of jeans for my large family.

Performance
This machine is very dependable and it is our second Kenmore. I love the shoe and sweater drying rack. It even successfully dries soaking wet soccer cleats. This machine even does a great job with small loads that can struggle getting flipped around enough in the drying cycle.

Ease of Use
I like that it has several settings, but not too many, I mostly use the normal and towel setting. I have also used the low heat as well.

Durability
This is our second machine over our 20 years of home ownership and if and when I ever need another dryer it will also be a Kenmore.

Design
This is not a futuristic looking machine. It is your basic front loading white, dependable dryer.

We've been very happy with our Kenmore dryer!

Comments about Kenmore 600 Gas Dryer:

This has been a very reliable dryer and worked wonderfully for our family. It had one belt break, but it was an easy fix and hasn't had any problems since then. I don't do a good job keeping it clean and my boys don't always remember to clean out the lint trap, but I have been happy with how well it performs.

Load Capacity
Good sized dryer to hold a full sized load of clothes and get them dry in one cycle.

Performance
This machine has really been a trooper. My boys go through lots of clothes and do their own laundry so this machine gets a beating. It has stuck through fine and still performs just as well.

Ease of Use
There aren't a lot of fancy buttons, so it makes this machine fairly easy to use.

Durability
Very durable machine. We've moved it from one house to another, let the boys do their laundry themselves, and just generally done a lot of loads and it is still going strong.

Design
I do like the design of some of the fancier machines, but this is simple and good. If you are looking for a hard worker go with this Kenmore.

Good dryer and good prices.

Comments about Kenmore 600 Gas Dryer:

For the price, this dryer is great. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles that some dryers have, but I don't really need all those; I dry my laundry, I take it out once it's done and I'm good.

Load Capacity
This is not the largest dryer out there, but I have not had any problems drying my king size comforter or a full load of laundry from my washer machine.

Performance
I use cloth diapers on my babies. If you know anything about cloth diapers you know that they are super absorbent and therefore take a long time to dry. A full load of cloth diaper inserts and prefolds has taken me well over an hour to dry in other dryers. In this dryer on the high setting it takes about 45 minutes. When I dry my king size comforter it dries that in about the same time too. And the only reason that it seems to take as long is because I have to go in every 15 minutes or so and make sure that the middle of the comforter gets dry and not tangled.

Durability
I have only had this dryer a little over two years and so far I have had no problems. I do clean out the lint trap after every load I dry and my husband does go back behind our dryer and clean out the hose and the floor about every three months.

Design
The thing I like most about this dryer is that the door swings down instead of to the right or the left.

Fantastic Dryer, but You Might Have to Wait for It.

Comments about Kenmore 600 Gas Dryer:

I bought this dryer because I was looking for a high functioning dryer that was affordable. Overall, I have been very pleased with the dryer, its ease of use, and its capacity.

My favorite feature of this dryer is its ability to air dry. I have been able to put sweaters, pillows, or nicer clothing in the dryer that I don’t want to come out ruined in the dryer on “Air Dry” and it comes out just fine. I also really enjoy the timer setting. If I need to run an errand or am doing something else that distracts me from laundry, I can just set the timer and the dryer will shut off when the timer is up.

The only negative aspect of this dryer is its speed. For some reason, it takes the dryer over an hour to dry a normal “Large” load of laundry. I occasionally will have to pull everything out but just the clothes I absolutely need dried first, run a load that way, and then put the rest in later.
