Kenmore Elite 81472 7.3 Cu. Ft. White Electric Dryer Review
This dryer does more than get the job done - which would be expected for a machine with an MSRP over $1200.
What's in a name? That which we brand Kenmore, by any other name, would dry as well. Sure, the Kenmore Elite 81472 does a very good job. It offers effective drying, especially with its excellent Bulky cycle and Express Dry feature. It also has a good variety of customizable options, as well as a control panel that's quite easy to use. Its main drawback is an MSRP of $1299.99, and drying performance that's not quite perfect.
For those interested in buying this item as a pair, the Kenmore Elite 41472 performed very well. Like its wetter counterpart, this particular dryer is an updated model, designed based on the LG WM3470HVA.
Since it's a Kenmore, you're dependent on Sears to find a sale price, which may be down to $1150 without shipping. That low price may make this machine smell that much sweeter.
