I bought this about a year ago from a fellow in Michigan and had it shipped to Atlanta (very successfully, I might add) via U-Ship. All I did was detail the cabinet and then placed it in storage here at my home. According to the seller, the dryer had been in use prior to it's selling, but as I did not have a readily-available power outlet I cannot speak to it's functionality. After 6 months of being unemployed I am having to look at re-location and downsizing, and this old girl will not be going with me.

This photo is one that a fellow member saved from the original CL advertisement.

Anyone interested in this DA-720W?

That dryer was rated at 5000 watts at 220 volts. I guess it would be about 5600 at 240. It seems similar to the one we had with the same features except for the slanted black and aluminum control panel.

Good heavens! Isn't that the matching dryer to Robert's unused GE Filter-Flo washer??

Not quite; but it would be if only Robert had the technical expertise required to remove the pedestals (and then install a window in the door).
