just hope who ever purchases one, matches the capacity of the washer to it....

too many times, found an ExLarge capacity washer and a Standard capacity dryer matched to it....

These dryers are great because they fit into tighter spots.


The large diameter drum dries any but the most extreme sized loads easily, these dryers are really considered ex large capacity, they were originally mated with WPs HUGE 25 gallon capacity washers in the late 60s and early 70s and I never saw a problem in the field with one these dryers not being able to dry the loads people put in them from the washers.


The interesting thing they are claiming about this dryer is that it is a Long Vent model, WP sold a dryer like this about 12 years ago that had the hi-speed blower in it where the blower was turning about twice the motors speed by means of a second belt driven shaft, this system really helped when you have a very long vent run, I wounder if this dryer has this system.
