I hate this dryer. Don't buy it.

I really hate this dryer. It either leaves clothes damp or over drys them. The lack of control over what it is going to do drives me crazy. For $1,200 I should be able to program it to do whatever I want. Even when it decides, it doesn't even do what it says it's going to do anyway. <br /><br />I put a large load of towels and sheets in the dryeron Sensor Sanitize. It showed 1:07 (an hour and seven minutes) on the display. One and a half hours later, it was still running on high. Display still said 1:07 (an hour and seven minutes). Clothes were bone dry and smelled burned. 1) the Sensor feature did not stop the dryer when the clothes were dry, 2) timer did not count down and stop the dryer. Has happened twice. Bought dryer Aug 2013. Is this a known issue with a resolution?

Comment:
This is a lovely big machine which operates quietly, and has loads of nice options. However, temperature selection is not one of them. Most clothing manufacturers recommend drying at LOW heat to better preserve fabrics and extend the life of the garment. However, that is not possible with this machine. For almost all load types, the temperature has been programmed to the High or Medium level, with no ability to choose Medium Low, Low, or Extra Low settings. One must choose the Timed Dry setting to get the Low temperature, just like dryers in the 1970s. The 'Delicates' selection is programmed at Extra Low - all other types of loads: towels, permanent press, jeans, etc, are limited to High or Medium. That is very disappointing.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
