After 50 hours of research, we learned that clothes dryers all work pretty similarly. So if you don’t care if your dryer matches your washer, we recommend looking for a simple, sturdy dryer because it’ll work just as well as models that cost hundreds more. We think the Maytag MEDX655DW electric dryer (or the Maytag MGDX655DW gas version) is a good choice because it’s one of the most well-built dryers you’ll find for the money, with all the features you need and none that you don’t.

More or less the same with a hamper door
