Companion Washer - Kenmore-29272 Review




Dryer Pros and Cons
Drying Quickly refreshes lightly soiled clothes without washing. Generates steam during the refresh cycle to reduce wrinkles, remove odors, and/or sanitize clothes. Nearly eliminates the need to iron.
Cycles Number of cycles and options is 25% lower than average and ranks in the bottom 15% of new dryers for FAIR program selection and flexibility. Fewer cycles sometimes makes it harder to meet your fabric care needs.  
Drum Designed with a stainless steel dryer drum that is more durable than porcelain or plastic. Stainless steel resists odor absorption or discoloration and reduces the amount of static build-up in your clothing.
Capacity The Kenmore 69272 capacity is 2% higher than average and ranks in the top 40% of new larger size dryers. Holds about 0.1 cu ft more laundry than the average new dryer. Laundry can be done less often.
Sensor Uses a moisture sensor to measure the water content of clothing as it tumbles, and automatically shuts-off the cycle when dry. Prevents clothing from being damaged by overheating and saves on energy costs.
Price Price per cubic foot of capacity is about average for a new clothes dryer and is rated GOOD for affordability. Dryers can often be purchased on-sale at 10%-20% under the manufacturer's MSRP.  


Kenmore 69272 Dryer


Performance Ratings
Temp
Settings
5 Settings - Provides an ample number of temperature settings to select from. It's important to match the heat level to the type of fabric being laundered; helps prevent damage and alleviate wrinkles.
Steam
Cycle
Steam Drying - If you're in a hurry and just need to get the wrinkles out of your clothes, or freshen-up lightly soiled garments, the steam generation cycle on this model will prove to be very handy.
Sanitize
Cycle
Sanitize Cycle - Sanitizes items with a high-temp cycle that kills many forms of household bacteria or allergens. Especially useful for stuffed animals, pillows, and other non-washable items. NSF Certified.
MSRP $1293 - Manufacturer's Price is about average for a new dryer and is rated GOOD for overall price. In addition to the Kenmore 69272 MSRP, it's also beneficial to check the price per cubic foot.  
Warranty Kenmore 1-Year Parts, 1-Year Labor - Industry standard warranty for clothes dryers. A few manufacturers offer a two-year warranty on parts, but dryer warranties are generally not as good as washers.


Convenience Ratings
Stackable Not Stackable - Cannot be stacked vertically with a companion washing machine to save space in your laundry room. Only an issue if you have a smaller laundry room without space for side-by-side models.  
Reverse
Door
Reversible Door - The Kenmore 69272 dryer door is flexible and can be switched to open from right-to-left (with a washer sitting on the right side), or left-to-right (with a washer sitting on the left side).
Drum
Light
Drum Light - Includes an internal light that automatically switches on when the dryer door opens. Almost all new dryers come equipped with this nearly essential feature so you can see to unload your clothes.
Filter
Indicator
Filter Indicator - Provides a visual cue that the Kenmore 69272 lint filter needs to be cleaned. Helps you keep the dryer clean and ensure that the proper airflow is maintained. Most of us need to be reminded.
Dryer
Rack
Dryer Rack Included - Dryer racks allow you to dry items that shouldn't be tumbled such as shoes, ball caps, sweaters, and stuffed animals. Simply place the rack inside the dryer for tumble-free drying.
Venting Must Be Vented - Over 95% of new dryer models must be vented to the outside of your home with a duct running from your dryer. A few ventless models are available if an outside duct is not practical.  


Control Ratings
Display LED Display - Just look at the dryer while you're working to see how much time is left before the clothes are finished. Includes a remaining cycle time display that provides time and sometimes program status.
Controls Rotary-Electronic - Designed with a modern digital control system that makes cycle or option selection easy and convenient. About 85% of new dryers are now fitted with highly-functional electronic controls.
Delay
Start
Delay Start - Fit the laundry around your busy schedule by programming the dryer to start at a later, more convenient time. Allows you to plan around noise concerns or home departure / arrival times.
Custom
Cycle
No Custom Cycle - Like most new dryers, you cannot program a custom cycle with temperature settings and options that you use the most. Convenient capability that's only available on about 30% of new dryers.  
Phone
Diagnosis
Phone Troubleshooting - Dryer problems or maintenance needs can be diagnosed via a phone connection with one of the manufacture's repair centers. Reduces the need to call-out a repairman to see what's wrong.
Smart
Grid
Not Smart-Grid Capable - Cannot be hooked into the present or future local utility smart-grid and programmed to operate when utility rates are lower. Most new dryers are still not smart-grid capable.
