Kenmore Elite Gas Steam Dryer?
Hi everyone. As a first time poster here, I'm hoping you can help me out. After 25 years of service, my faithful Whirlpool gas dryer has gone to the appliance graveyard and I'm in the market for a new gas dryer! Having not had to look for a dryer in over 2 decades, I am awed by all the new bells and whistles I'm seeing -- like steam drying, "smart heat", rack drying, etc. (I'm also awestruck by today's prices and looking for a good "budget" deal!) That said, I was browsing yesterday in a Sears scratch and dent and here's the skinny on a purchase I'm strongly considering:
Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 9/HE 5 gas steam dryer. Originally retailing for $1579.99, on sale now for $394! The sales rep said the reason for the deep discount is that this machine is a LG product and that Sears is no longer dealing with LG for the manufacture of dryers. He also said I need not worry about getting parts for this machine if needed because the supply is abundant. Unfortunately, I did not get a specific model # while at the store. But I'm hoping that some of you may know something of this Kenmore Elite (LG) steam gas dryer line and can give me your take on whether you would consider this deal to be a thumbs up or a thumbs down. Thanks!
