I care for two children, and thus have a lot of laundry to do. My old drier died on me, so I went to my local dealer and picked up this Kenmore model. I typically do about 2 loads of laundry every day. One thing that I like about this gas drier is that it gets my clothes all the way dry in one cycle. Other similar driers leave your cloths damp. Also, being a moderately sized model, I am able to reduce to total number of loads that I have to do. This is extremely positive because I save on utility usage.
