Great Little Dryer
Our Magic Chef dryer sits on an Avanti Mounting Bracket, in our bathroom. It has a Magic Chef 1.6CU washer, stored on an appliance dolly, underneath it. The dryer's leveling legs unscrew to attach it to the shelf of the mounting bracket, but, the circumference of the legs and the length of the ledge underneath the shelf prevent all four legs from being attached. We chose to attach the dryer, to the shelf, using the back legs. The bracket is not attached to the wall, but, the set up is very stable. The only accessory we bought for the dryer was a 9' heavy-duty, inside, appliance extension cord, so it could reach an outlet. The dryer itself works very well. We haven't vented the dryer to the outside yet. We use it on the hot setting. Since our bathroom is small this setting makes the room very hot, even when we open the window. So, we keep the bathroom door open when we use the dryer. It takes about 45 minutes to dry four towels and a few wash cloths, or, a queen-sized set of sheets with pillowcases. The dryer isn't very loud. There is a plastic, mesh filter and a fabric filter inside the unit, in the back. These filters must be cleaned after each use. We use a lint roller to clean the fabric filter. There is another filter in the front of the dryer. After 20 uses it hasn't needed to be cleaned yet. This dryer was an excellent purchase for us.
