    Pros: Nice style. good range of drying temps. drying rack is very useful for sneakers
    Cons: the Door was really the only sore spot

    Summary: Just got the Kenmore Elite HE5 Dryer. After using it for the very first time the thing cut off in the middle of the normal drying cycle and the lights just Blinked. After reading several Epinions posts on this problem, I tried to tighten up the door ... read more

    Pros: I guess you could hang clothes on the open door to air dry?
    Cons: Cheap plastic parts always breaking
    Unreliable
    Sensor dry turns off before clothes are dry

    Summary: I used to trust the Kenmore name, but quality and reliability are a thing of the past.  Cheap plastic parts and sensors that require constant cleaning make this dryer a constant problem and Sears will not stand behind it. Everything about the door ... read more

    Apr 14, 2012 by
    Not rated yet
    Pros: Easy to use
    Cons: Buy this machine if you want torn clothing.

    Summary: The lint vent  is poorly designed. After I had the dryer for 1 year, the vent started to slightly rise up out of the housing unit and caught onto several of my expensive clothes. The clothes caught onto the vent,  twisted around and ripped the ... read more

    Pros: Large capacity, drying rack, easy to use controls
    Cons: Poor electronics, excessive drying times, lasted only three years!

    Summary: We bought this dryer as a set in 2007 thinking that this would be a great repalcement for our previous Maytag (that lasted 12 years). Now, three years later............heating element seems to always be "on", excessive drying times in any mode, and ... read more

  • Works well and quiet too

    Rated Show
    Pros: Quiet, useful cycle, looks great
    Cons: Flimsy door clip design, looks fragile - time will tell.

    Summary: Well, we had to get a new washer, as our old trusty 17 year old Kenmore died. We got the HE5T in white. As a matched set, the HE5 gas dryer completed the pair. White was the only option offered to us for the gas model.Easy to use and very quiet. ... read more

  • Bad dryer

    Rated Show
    Pros: When I dries it's great.
    Touch up feature is a plus.
    Cons: Not drying clothes the first time.
    Buttons going dead.

    Summary: WE bought the HE5 dryer in nov. 06. Since then it doesn't dry anything the first time. You have to run it at least 2 times sometimes 3 or 4. I am used to going to bed with the dryer running so the clothes are dry in the morning, not with this machine. We ... read more
