Identify where you will place your dryer and then measure that area so you can buy a dryer that will fit in that space.
It's easy to keep your machine running more efficiently if the lint screen is convenient to access.
Pull-down doors are convenient for holding clothing when loading or unloading. Side-opening doors make the back of the drum more accessible for maintenance.
Choose a dryer with a control panel that includes all the features you want but also is easy to understand and program.
Dryers with moisture or dryness sensors adjust the drying time, reducing energy use.
Investigate and compare warranty plans available to you from the appliance manufacturer.
Ask important questions, including:
Does the warranty cover equipment and installation?
If so, for how long?
What is the typical cost of service and maintenance?
Your contractor should be properly licensed and insured. Ask if he or she installs and services products. You should ask for (and receive) an estimate in writing.
If you don't have a contractor, let Piedmont find a contractor for you.
