Roper  You can't beat a Roper dryer. The el cheapo roper with the tiny door and no features whatsoever.  Ain't no better dryer in my book.

I would be scared of any maytag. I just for kicks looked at parts for a centennial. I did not compare prices but get this That is a heck of a dryer. Know how I know? Because that dryer underneath all of that glam is a Roper. So I like the fact that whirlpool didn't go crazy and stop the production of the worlds greatest dryer design time tested and proven so i am leaning towards the cent but If I want a cent i want a roper because of price. Next: Bravos

I took a look at the Bravos and underneath I know exactly what that kitchenaid/maytag hybride is. The none other than dryer of tomorrow. A bravos dryer is a gloryfied DOT dryer. On the same platform as the dot. It has a lot more stuff to worry about as far as maintenance but it is a damn nice dryer. It ain't a whirlpool it is a maytag for real. Much more complicated. Not a bad dryer but it dont beat the roper. Tadah! Either dryer would hands down beat a slopehead or anything from GE. Electrolux? nope :rofl:
