This dryer is a perfect budget machine with premium preformance. A little loud, but since its in the basment no worries. Our issue outside of the product was with Abes of Maine premium shipping service which was "sold" to me by Abe's staff as a great "white glove treatment deal". All the delivery men did was bring it in the house an once I signed the invoice they were out the door. I was told they were to unpack and inspect the contents and even move it to our desired location. Then when I brought it to the attention to Abes customer service they offered a restaurant gift card that was a bait and switch offer. You actually have to spend money to use the card. Total asinine & unprofessional handling. First and last time we buy from Abes. Sad.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
