  The Kenmore 60022 is a bas+I15ic, no-frills machine that should handle most drying needs for a small household. It offers three automatic settings (less, normal, more) but without the moisture sensors that are on most energy-efficient machines. It's also missing relatively standard features like an end-of-cycle signal, a fabric softener dispenser or a dry rack. What it offers is basic drying capabilities at a lower cost than most dryers on the market. Kenmore appliances are sold only at Sears, Kmart or Kenmore.com; in October 2012, this model was not available through Kmart.

What People Are Saying:

Consumer Reports rates the Kenmore 60022 electric dryer very good for drying performance; good (equivalent to about a C letter grade) for capacity and convenience; and only fair for noise. User reviews are primarily positive, with close to 80% of about 40 reviews at Sears recommending this machine. Those who like this dryer say it's a standard, not overly noisy machine for those buyers who don't need many extras. Those few who dislike this machine report repair problems (peeling lining, loose parts) within a relatively short period of time.
