    It works

    This machine works. It is plain and simple. It isn't fancy, it has no light in the dryer, who cares. It works, it dries the clothing and so what if it isn't high end. This is perfect, it's not too noisy and actually will dry a full load of towels in about 35 - 40 minutes. Better than my others. This is what I need now. I cannot spend tons of money on disposable appliances. That is exactly what they make now. NOTHING is meant to last more than 3 - 5 years. Our first appliances we went nuts and bought the best we could buy thinking they would last 20 - 25 years. RIGHT, that is not the case. I have no luck with appliances, it doesn't matter what it is. I have lived in my house almost 14 years, in that time have replaced my dryer 3 times, my washing machine 4 times, fridge 2 times, dishwasher 2 times stove and microwave 2 times. Trust me, don't waste your hard earned money on something too fancy, it will not last.

    6.5 plenty. The cord WAS included in gas version

    Works fine. As many point out, it's basic, simple. I did not visit the store, bought on-line. I had thought it might be somewhat smaller inside than my old dryer, because the capacity is only 6.5 cu. ft., while many on the website are 7.0 or 7.5. It's quite a bit larger inside than my old dryer, which i had presumed was the size of most dryers. Maybe that was the case 20 years ago. Before you decide against this on the basis of capacity, take a look in the store and you may find it plenty large. Opening the "specifications" drop down menu on the Best Buy page for this gas dryer, it reads, "Power Cord Included - No," but mine did come with a power cord installed. No power cord may well be the case for the electric version.

    A very basic model

    This dryer has been in use since shortly after it was delivered last month (June.) It drys clothes efficiently and quickly. There is no end of cycle signal. I did the gas line, electrical hookup, and venting myself with no problems. The stats on this model indicated that an AC electric cord was NOT included; however there certainly was one attached and just needed to be plugged in! Perhaps they meant for a 220VAC hookup you needed to supply your own plug and receptacle. I also purchased a telescoping vent on the chance I could make it work and gain a few extra inches of space; that was not the case. My local bigbox store did not have any flexible metal duct of the proper diameter, so I purchased a 90 degree galvanized elbow and that is working fine. A good product, good price, and fast turnaround!

    So far so good

    This is a plain old school dryer which can hold a decent amount of clothes. The dryer performs well at drying the clothes. It would be nice if it had an additional heat setting knob instead of the heat setting being built into the timed cycle. Also the lint catcher is on the top and slides out causing the lint to get on top of the dryer. After installing I noticed a 6 inch line/indentation on the front door which isn't a big deal but be sure to check for damage when you receive your product. I was going to call and see how Amana's customer service was about possibly getting a replacement door which only has 4 screws to switch out the dented one but I didn't yet. I'll keep you posted

    The best experience and a great product

    This was a purchase made for my 96 year old grandmother. It was a well needed update to her 25 year old unit. Bestbuy and the Geeksquad installers made it the most amazing experience for both her and the rest of the family. They were on time, took the old unit, charged us for only the things we needed and made the process of teacher her how to use the new unit seamless for her. This has been a great product for her and she is so happy that she sent the family a photo through Facebook of her hugging the unit right after it was installed. Thanks Best Buy for another great buying experience. You can not get that type of service or feeling from buying at another retailer.

    Love the dryer. However delivery works said they couldn't bring into the laundry room because it wouldn't fit through the laundry room door that open to the side yard. So they set it in my dinning room. They didn't even try by turning it to a different position. When my husband got home we were able to turn it with a 2 inch to spare on each side and slide it in. They refused to listen to me. Even when I showed them the old dryer came out same door. They also unwrapped in the truck before they put it on the dolly moving it in. Should of been unwrapped after it was brought in to prevent damage.

    Basic dryer, no bells or whistles

    Our 9 year old GE stopped turning the drum, so instead of repairing it I decided to see that BB had available. I found this dryer on sale for $399 and decided to take a chance on it. The dryer is very basic, with minimal bells and whistles (not even an interior light) but it works well and dries clothes faster than the old GE I had. If you are looking for an inexpensive dryer that drys clothes quickly and on a tight budget, go for it.

    Dislike the dryer

    This dryer is the pits. It does not want me to put a whole load of clothes to dry in it. I have to constantly rearrange the clothes and take some out to hang dry for it to start. Then sometimes I get it to start and it stops. A dryer should be able to dry a load of clothes by just throwing them in there. It also doesn’t have a light on the inside which is just weird. Would never buy this dryer again. Wish I could return it.
