The Hotpoint HTX21EASKWW is a spacious and robust back-to-basics clothes dryer that offers few frills, but lots of good, even drying for those loads of laundry you face very week. This electric dryer gives you a roomy 6.2-cubic-foot drum made of aluminized alloy to enhance the energy efficiency and resist metal corrosion. You get three heat selections for drying cycles: cottons, casuals (this encompasses man-made permanent press fabrics and items that require sensitive and gentle handling) and delicate items. The Hotpoint HTW240ASKWS is a good accompanying top-load washer with 10 washing cycles and a 3.8-cubic-foot washtub.
You get three heat selections for drying cycles: ones for cottons, casuals (this encompasses man-made permanent press fabrics and items that require sensitive and gentle handling) and delicate items. This clothes dryer also has an air fluff mode that provides no heat during a cycle, but circulates room-temperature air to dry clothing. This is a good option for items that cannot withstand any level of heat or don’t need heat because you simply want to fluff and refresh a garment to clear away wrinkles.
Sensors are built into this dryer for an auto-dry function that tracks the air temperature and determines the correct drying time. You can add or subtract drying time as needed. If you choose the Less Dry mode, you get clothes that are a bit damp at the end of the cycle, which you can hang up to fully air-dry.
There is a light inside the drum so you will not overlook any stray article of clothing once a drying cycle has ended. You can use a removable drying rack inside this dryer for items that cannot withstand tumbling inside a dryer but would dry faster and better while lying flat on a wire rack that permits maximum air circulation. You simply place the rack over the lint filter, and you can then spread a damp sweater for safe and effective drying or dry such things as athletic shoes, which are made almost entirely of synthetic materials that would disintegrate with hot-air drying or tumbling.
The manual rotary controls are easy to reach and simple to use. You cannot make a mistake with these knobs, unlike with the trickier electronic control panels. You also get a great deal of flexibility when it comes to installing your Hotpoint dryer, since it offers as much as 120 feet of venting capability. Another convenience feature is the fact that you can unscrew the hinges from the door and attach them to the other side if opening from a particular side works better in your laundry area.
If you want to pair this Hotpoint dryer with a top-loading Hotpoint washer, the Hotpoint HTW240ASKWS is a good choice for features and overall appearance. It has 10 washing cycles and a 3.8-cubic-foot washtub, so it is basic and compact but can still handle a lot of laundry at once.
