The Daewoo DWRWE3011WW is part of the clothes dryer
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric dryer
models like the DWRWE3011WW are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
This score combines performance on three types of laundry loads of different sizes and fabric mixes: A 12-lb. load, predominantly cotton, representing a family's large weekly load; an 8-lb. load of cotton/polyester blend clothing; and a 3-lb. load of synthetic delicates, women's pajamas, nightgowns, bras and underwear.
Among the models we tested, drum volume varied from about 6 to 8.0 cu. ft.
For this measurement, we judged controls and ergonomics, such as ease of loading and unloading, servicing the lint filter, whether the door could clear a tall basket, and whether the machine has a raised edge to contain spills.
Features & Specs - Daewoo DWRWE3011WW
Stainless-steel drum A stainless-steel drum is likely to resist damage better than plastic and painted metal drums.
Porcelain top A porcelain top resists scratching better than a painted one but generally adds to a dryer's cost. Painted tops, far more common, are often quite durable with normal use.
Drying rack The rack attaches inside the drum to keep items such as sneakers or sweaters from tumbling.
Custom programs This feature allows you to save your favorite settings.
Steam option Generally, a water hook-up is required with this feature. In this cycle, a small amount of water is sprayed into the drum while tumbling with heat. It helps to reduce wrinkles and odors, but is intended only for a few garments at a time.
I bought the set because of it's affordable price. I also saw it on the Costco website so I figured it was a good brand. I would NOT recommend this dryer (or washer). The dryer has never worked properly and now the dryer is not heating at all. It is probably the heating element but because it is an off brand, I can't find the part. <br /><br />The washer works okay, but I find little holes in my families clothes and the washer really stinks! This is not my first front loader, I leave the door open after each load to air out, but it still stinks. I finally started running a load of bleach through it once a week. I will not buy this brand again.
