About - Kenmore 7800[2]

The Kenmore 7800[2] is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, gas dryer models like the 7800[2] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Drying performance:
This score combines performance on three types of laundry loads of different sizes and fabric mixes: A 12-lb. load, predominantly cotton, representing a family's large weekly load; an 8-lb. load of cotton/polyester blend clothing; and a 3-lb. load of synthetic delicates, women's pajamas, nightgowns, bras and underwear.

Among the models we tested, drum volume varied from about 6 to 9.0 cu. ft.

For this measurement, we judged controls and ergonomics, such as ease of loading and unloading, servicing the lint filter, whether the door could clear a tall basket, and whether the machine has a raised edge to contain spills.
