Rated 5 out of 5 by from We bought this dryer because it is compact and we were able to vent from its side. It is easy to use. It also looks nice with all the electronic controls. I like the Wrinkle Care feature which keeps the dryer going after the dry cycle is over so your clothes don't get too wrinkly if you don't take it out right away.

Is it alright to use either druer sheets or is a dryer bar preferred because my new dryer does not seem to dry clothes well

Asked by: Judi d
I apologize, but no; it is not recommended to use either dryer sheets or a dryer bar in this machine. If the unit is not drying, it is recommended to check the Lint Filter and the Exhaust Duct to make sure they are clear. Also check the breaker to ensure the unit is running fully, and that the heat has not been deactivated. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional information in this matter.

does steam fresh really work ?

just got a DLEY1701 dryer. tried the steam fresh with two garments. they came out wet and cold. I saw water dripping around while the drum was spinning. I did not see any steam whatsoever.
Asked by: captainmike
I haven't had much luck with the Steam Fresh feature, but I only tried a couple of garments. I think the key is to have more than a few in order to not come out as damp.

Is there a "no heat" dryer setting

This is sometimes called "air dry".
Asked by: Eddd
Yes. There are settings for Ultra Low on up, and then 2 sets of special cycles, Cycle 1 & Cycle 2. Air Dry is listed as one of the options under Cycle 2.

Does the drum spin when using the drying rack?

I'd prefer if the drum didn't spin when using the drying rack it's useless energy usage. Would using the "rack dry" feature prevent the drum from spinning?
Asked by: JRangel
Yes. The "rack dry" feature just sets the time and has a heating and cooling period. The drum still spins as it would during a normal cycle. I have used it to dry tennis shoes and it works great. I imagine the impact of using the drum during this cycle has a minimal impact on the electric bill. It's the heat that is more of a concern, but these are energy efficient machines..

do i have to hook up the DLEY1701W steam fresh to a water main?

Asked by: seandonmiami
It comes with a Y adapter to hook it up where your washing machine is hooked up to. It's very simple just read your instruction. Took a whole 10 minutes to install and I'm a girl.

Why does the dryer squeek when it first starts up.

It quiets down after 3-5 minutes.
Asked by: Popsnc2
It is difficult to determine the cause of squeaking in a dryer. It would typically be related to a belt, roller, or motor. It will not be possible to determine the source of this sound without an inspection by a qualified technician. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at
