Whirlpool Heavy Duty Dryer Review

With a very minimal maintenance cost and still in good working condition on its 5th year, this is the kind of basic home appliance worth investing, can be highly recommended, deserves the highest rating, and have a potential to last a much more longer life span.  Supported by a transformer, gas  fuel efficient, makes our clothes fragrant and soft, and some doesn’t needs ironing anymore.  However, Uniqlo’s lingerie – light wireless bra and seamless underwear are off limits in this kind of dryer, it melts the lingeries’ adhesive over time.

Author’s Notes

It is a good day for another Mima’s Homey review.  This is the second, following the introductory which featured a cooktop stove.  I will include a detailed series of events of the unexpected performance and quality of this expensive home appliance without any intention of defamation, just facts and experiences.  I thought I will finally have a blast after owning this kind of heavy duty appliance, for the first year yes, but it was the opposite in the succeeding years (except 2018).  

There are actually two appliances which I bought of the same brand and one of them is faulty.  I also thought that this might be an isolated case. However, the nearby laundry shop owner disposed all of her washing machines with the same model due to poor quality and high maintenance cost compared to her other branded washing machines.  We have the same service technician from the authorized service center of Fujidenzo, Whirlpool, Maytag, and Glem.  We can definitely compare notes!
