The bottleneck in the laundry room is often the dryer, which is why it's so important to get just the right model for your needs. A great dryer allows you to wash and dry a whole load of clothes within a short time frame, helping you expedite your household chores and get on with the rest of your life. Here at Kmart, we have a wide range of dryers and would love to help you find just the right one for your needs. You want a model that fits your budget, your laundry room, and has all of the features that you are looking for.
Before shopping in much detail, choose whether you want your machine to be powered by gas or electricity. Although both types of power end up with similar results, they are different in their installation and cost of operation. You'll need a gas hookup in your laundry room to use a gas dryer, and although this model is a little more expensive in its purchase price, you'll usually make up for it with savings in operating costs. Electric dryers have much more simple installation, though, especially if you're just wired for electricity in your laundry room. Here at Kmart, we'd be happy to work with you to help you decide what option is best for your needs.
One of the newest options available is a steam dryer, which can have either a gas or electric fuel source. In addition to the regular drying cycle, these also have a steam cycle. If you often find your clothes coming out wrinkled and you hate ironing, this can be just the right option for you. The steam portion of the cycle gently steams out most wrinkles to simplify your life and minimize your time in the laundry room.
After you have decided what type of dryer you want, it's time to browse Kmart's selection to find the size and style that meets your needs. The size of your laundry room is going to be a constraint, as many people only have space for one machine and need to purchase a stackable unit with a front-loading washer and a dryer that fits on top. Alternately, you may have plenty of room and want a large front-loading dryer that fits right next to your washer for an easy transfer of clothing.
The inside capacity of each model is clearly listed, and you'll want to ensure that your dryer capacity matches your washer capacity. If you have a large washing machine, you'll want a large dryer as well to ensure that the whole load of clothes fits comfortably with room to tumble. Our dryers here at Kmart range in size from six to eight cubic feet, although we also have a few compact models with three to four cubic feet of space.
With plenty of options from top brands like Whirlpool, Kenmore, Frigidaire, GE, Hotpoint, Maytag, and Samsung, you're sure to find the right dryer at Kmart.
