    Avanti Portable Dryer |
    Verified Purchase

    There're numerous attributes about the Avanti portable dryer model, D-110-1 and some not so great. First, the unit is very light weight (40 lbs) which makes it very portable. I purchased a dryer venting box for inside venting, but found I didn't need it. This unit doesn't put off much heat or moisture(less than a small pot of boiling water) or lint, since it has duel filters(more on these later). The amount of heat is much less than a full size dryer yet gets the clothes dry in a gentle but fairly decent time frame. It helps to dry, similar materials together, keeping in mind jeans will take a bit longer. Clothes come out wrinkle free, and not burning hot like larger dryers, which means much less damage to your clothes. It's a fairly impressive dryer. Never over-fill the dryer, clothes will not dry in a timely fashion. The dryer does not have a dryer signal to alert you upon completion of the cycle. But it does have Hot, Warm and Air Only cycle plus a cool down setting to keep your clothes from wrinkling if you don't get to it right away. All the bells and whistles my full size had. Upon initial install the unit gave a horrible screeching sound, I pulled the back off and discovered the belt(very thin one) was not on properly, made adjustment. It appeared to be fixed but soon after unit once again would squeak and squeal, making it impossible to be in the room when it was running. Four months into use, the noise went away on it's own. The dryers filter system is somewhat daunting but it does serve a purpose to keep lint out of your house, if you choose indoor venting. There are several layers of filters and one that will need to be replaced after some time is a wool like material that after five months of use. I've had a difficult time finding replacements. I've searched the web, to make sure I had extra parts on hand like extra belts since the one that drives the unit is very thin. I've not found any parts houses that carry Avanti parts and the manual does not provide buyers with a parts list or schematic. Making parts identification difficult. I did find a similar "filter" material at the fabric store and made my own, and they seem to work better. I discovered the Avanti filter is the same as the Haier HLP140E portable dryer filter. All in all I really love the convenience and appearance of the Avanti dryer. And hope they have better availability for parts and filters in the future. I took off one star for the noise and poor parts availability. UPDATE: 12/28/11, After locating a parts (blowout) list, for this dryer. I made an attempt to order extra replacement parts, via Avanti. Ordering the parts from the number in the included catalog was straight forward, but after a month of waiting for "in-stock" parts I called once again to check the status, and got the run around. I waited another two weeks, and still no parts. When I called the third time, I was told they "just" were put into stock that moment, and they would "expedite" the shipment. While I was not impressed with the Parts availability from the start, I was really let down by the delay and run-around the parts department gave me. I even lessened the amount of filters and belts I ordered to assure quicker delivery, since the parts department informed me of the total number they had in stock. I think, I'll buy my filters and parts via Haier rather than Avanti, since they are the exact same part, but different makers. Avanti needs better service badly. Those of you needing Filter replacement, here are the part numbers and description of each filter. There are actually three "filters" 1. Small one at the door latch, called "air inlet filter" Part # GYJ42.2-4 2. The tighter mesh screen inside the plastic circle, called "filter" Part # GYJ42.5-5 3. Wool like fabric against the tub on back wall. called, "filter of inner tub" Part # GYJ42.5-6

    This should be zero stars -- but alas, I had to give the minimum of 1. I've used apartment sized washer and dryers for many years. In April, 2012, after 6 years, my trusty little Haier dryer just couldn't take it any more and died. I would have purchased a new Haier, but Amazon had the Avanti, on Prime, for the same price. I decided to try the Avanti after reading a ton of reviews. The unit was delivered on the 26 of April. At first, I was pleased -- it seemed to dry a bit faster, and was a bit larger capacity than my old Haier. 3 months later, a loud noise started -- it sounded as if it had a bad bearing. The sound was so loud that if you stood in the same room, you couldn't hear my teenagers music playing full blast in the next room. Seriously freaking loud. I called Avanti to have warranty service done on the unit on August 2, 10, 15, 17, 21, 23, and finally on the 29th. Each time I was told the unit was now entered into the system. Each time I was given a confirmation number. Each time I was told that a service provider would call me within 2 days. Each time I called, there was no record that I had previously called, even with the confirmation numbers. On the 29th, the last call I made, I was told that there were no service providers in my area (I live within 30 minutes of New York City). They would try and find somebody to service the unit. I should expect to hear from a provider within 6 to 10 WEEKS. I can't return this to Amazon, as the return period has expired. I can't get the dryer fixed for at least 2.5 months. I'm incredibly disappointed in this purchase and will be purchasing a new Haier in place of this Avanti. If a service provider ever calls, I will still have this repaired, as a back up, but never again will I purchase from a company with such awful customer service.

    I recommend... with a few notes |
    Verified Purchase

    I like the dryer and it has been quite a godsend to my 3-pet NYC apartment where space is precious. READ REVIEWS Do read reviews and discussions from others as I found the tips very helpful. I especially recommend C. Brooks' re: filter replacements. DRYER DRUM Upon arrival the box looked a little banged up so having read that some had problems I had my husband unscrew the back to make sure the drum was not hitting the sides of the dryer. The drum was indeed very close to one of the sides so he adjusted it to be more centered. VENTING YOU WILL NEED to purchase an indoor dryer vent also referred as a Lint Trap Kit OR if you have a window, you just need the flexible aluminum duct. Not venting into something will spread a thin layer of filter dust and more importantly is a bit dangerous since the lint is flammable. Unfortunately the exhaust "mouth" of the vent is oval and not the same shape as your standard aluminum duct. What I did was to carefully remove the wire and ended up with just the aluminum, then used plastic zip ties to secure to the duct to the dryer's exhaust. HOW WELL DOES IT DRY? It dries well when you don't overload it. To save energy and time, I take out the load when clothes are slightly damp. I put on a drying rack I got from Crate & Barrel which I really like. WHERE'S AVANTI? Fortunately, I've not had any problems *knock on wood* with the dryer to need to contact the manufacturer. I did email Avanti about getting extra filters, but never heard back. I made the purchase with the thought that beyond returning to Amazon, I'd most likely be on my own in terms of repair/guarantee etc. Overall I am happy with the dryer and do recommend.

    great little dryer |
    0

    Great dryer for small spaces. only uses 110v outlet. Takes a little longer to dry but worth the wait. Because it doesn't over dry, clothes come out soft even with out dryer sheets. It is a little noisy but I rather deal with the noise than going to public laundremat. The lint filter fills up fast so clean it after each load. The filter is a little tricky to remove but after a few cleanings you get the hang of it. I did not want to mount it on the wall so I used bed risers to raise it off the floor so I don't have to bend over so much. the risers work great!

Beware of the oblong exhaust! Positives: Overall, it works better than the Haier, and has a see through glass window. Negatives: Oblong exhaust The lint filter is tougher to clean than Haier, although not as hard as I make it seem. It just unsnaps when you push the snaps up one by one. Unknowns: My Haier served me well for 5 years. I'm not sure how long this will last. Other: This dryer is made by several companies, but this one is labeled Avanti out of Miami, FL. I bought it because it was offered with Prime shipping. Fed Ex delivered this 45 pound box unscathed and up a flight of stairs.

    After 4 years, still going great! |
    Verified Purchase

    I live in an apartment with no hookups. This thing has been a time saver! I use to hang dry my clothes but wanted a quicker way to dry and help get rid of the lint build up. Great to do laundry at night and have clothes dried before I sleep! I will update the review if anything changes. I will give one tip I have learned: After about 3 years or so I started noticing a rattle sound that kept getting louder. Eventually it was too loud to use the machine. I opening the back to see if I could notice anything and saw that a screw had come loose(perhaps from vibration). There is a straight metal bar along the back that the motor/everything kind of hooks to. Toward the bottom of it is where the screws came loose. I tightened everything and reinserted the screws. The sound was completely gone and everything worked 100% again.

    good and solid dryer |

    I purchased this dryer from abc warehouse, not amizon because of cost for shipping, but its the same dryer anyway. so I am going to cover 3 things about this dryer, First is size, second is venting and filters, and last, is it worth the money. First, size. this dryer is close to 1/4 size of a regular dryer, and this means it is great for a small apartment like mine. the dryer is short and the controls are at the bottom of the dryer so to save my back I bought a wire 5 tier shelf and used 1/2 of it with a shelf on the bottom and one close to the top. bottom for clothes basket and detergent storage, and top for the dryer, being 40 lbs and heavier with wet clothes I chose a shelf with 80+ lbs per shelf. I used the adjustable feet of the dryer to screw in from under the shelf to hold it securely. Now the controls are within reach and the dryer is more accessible. second, venting and filters. I attached the plastic vent to the back of the dryer and face this up toward the ceiling. after about 2 months of use, be sure to clean around the dryer. Dust and lint will accumulate. there is a noticeable amount of moisture in the air when in use but it only lasts from a few min after the dryer starts until about 20 min before the dryer stops. I have noticed no reason to vent this dryer outside, except for maybe in the hotter seasons where drying clothes conflicts with the efficiency of air-conditioners. For the filters they are basically felt. so after 7 to 8 months with the original filter material I bought a felt piece at the arts and crafts isle at walmart and one sheet made both the front and rear filters. On cleaning the filters, use a lint roller to remove the lint build up after about every second or third use. last, is it worth the money, Yes. for drying clothes I load the dryer no more than 2/3 full and it takes 200 min (dial straight down) for a full load. for jeans and on hot days where I don't want to run a heat source and the air conditioning, I bought a wood hanging rack and I hang the clothes and jeans on these with a fan on them, making sure to flip the clothes after a few hours. Then after the clothes are dry, I run the dryer with no heat for 20 min to "soften" up the clothes and remove wrinkles. I have noticed very little in the cost of electricity for this dryer, about $7 to $10 a month. And that is the same cost as going to a laundry-mat. This ends my review. No noises no problems, just a little maintenance and care.

    I wanted it to work so bad!! It looks fantastic but it is junk..... :-( |
    Verified Purchase

    Yes this review is about the D110 compact dryer also known as the Avanti compact Dryer But, FIRST OFF: I had the Haier Compact Washer and Dryer for a long time. Even though I went through 3 washers, the Haier dryer lasted through all those for about 3 years. For the price I was happy with that. NOW I had to replace it finally because the bearings must have went bad and started grinding. SO what do I see? Oh look it has a little window and for some reason the appeal of the dial on this Avanti Dryer drew me to it. I found it from a seller fulfilled by Amazon and bought ti for within a few dollars of what it would have costs to buy another Haier... After all I had no problems with the Haier dryer before but that could have been a fluke because I wore the washers out. And other people had problems with the Haier dryers so I wasnt brand loyal or anything. (A penny will kill a Haier compact washing machine left in a pocket) Anyway long story short. I really liked the appearance of this one this here Avanti compared to the Haier and as for the reviews who talks about the smell of hot plastic I didn't smell that at all. I did notice it was harder to mount and the vent coming out of the back is smaller then standard so my dryer exhaust hose was too big and had to be rigged up to work. To those of you not venting these dryers, your doing it wrong. This and the haier have to be vented.... Period. Anyway finally I get it up and turn it on awful squeak and grind loud as the one I just set o the curb the day before this one arrived. God why.. I wanted it to work so bad.. But it didn't and I read the reviews about taking the back off and finding belts and pulleys loose but you know what, I shouldn't have to do that or look for that in a new A BRAND NEW APPLIANCE. I boxed it up and sent it back and am about to buy another Haier if nothing else to hide the big hole in my appliance wall where I threw the old one away and now returning this one.. Again, I wanted it to work so bad. It is really attractive but it is cheap junk prettied up on the outside junk and plastic on the inside. ... I returned it with ease to Amazon and got a refund fast so now I can buy the next one. Happy with Amazon, BUT Sad about the fools gold product....

    fantastic product |
    Verified Purchase

    This is a well-executed product. It pretty much nails its use case, with no drawbacks, other than those inherent to the limitations of any such product in its class (i.e., its small size). It dries very well. In "auto" mode it will dry your clothes until it detects that they are no longer wet, and then it continues blowing unheated air until time runs out. If the unit is loaded with clothes that all dry at a similar rate, the results are very good. I was surprised to find that the unit can have a lot of things in it and perform very well, as long as none of the items are large things that will bunch up. So for example, it does very well drying a dozen or more T-Shirts, but you can only really put in 2 bedsheets at a time, and even then you should probably check in on them once in a while to see if they are getting bunched up. It has a high heat and low heat setting, which also correspond to longer and shorter times. These are a lot less hot than on a typical dryer. I've never had a problem with something not getting dried. I've done loads with 5 pairs of jeans and kakis, with the knob turned only to the end of the low heat range, and they always come out dry. The one confusing thing about the machine is how to deal with the filter system. But once I figured out a system, it's very easy. I will save you the agony and experimentation. The filter in the back has what looks like a typical mesh filter you would see in normal dryers. Additionally, there is another thicker felt filter. This is because the unit vents inside your house, so without this extra filter you would get a lot of fine particles in your air. The documentation makes the completely absurd and untenable suggestion that you clean this felt filter with a vacuum or a brush every single load. First of all, you would never make any progress cleaning the filter with a vacuum. It's way too flimsy and the lint is way too embedded. The only way to clean it is indeed with a brush, and it takes a lot of diligent brushing, maybe for 3-5 full minutes, to clean the thing. Afterward, you are left with a mess in the area where you were doing the cleaning. For a while I had resigned to doing this every 5 loads or so -- furiously brushing the filter. But then I happened to see another reviewer say that they had luck putting the filter into a washing machine, and I thought I would give that a try. So, long story short, here is my system: 1. Buy a set of extra felt filters. here are the ones I got: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JDS9Q3C/ 2. Every single load, clean the normal mesh non-felt filter, just like you would on a normal dryer 3. Every 3-4 loads, swap out the felt filter for a clean one. Keep the dirty ones all together somewhere. 4. When you have put the final clean filter in place and you have no more extras, put the dirty filters into the washing machine. I've been washing them with hot water and have excellent results. I've also been putting them in with their own load. I have a smaller HE washing machine so this isn't as absurd as it sounds. I may experiment with putting them in with another load. But anyway as you might guess, if they are in by themselves you need very little soap. 5. You don't need to dry them; because of their material, they will air-dry very quickly, so you can just stick them back in the clean pile where they were. Easy as pie, no scrubbing. I'm guessing the filter set will last at least a year, so the added cost isn't a big deal. Overall I'm extremely happy with this product, and in fact I think I like it better than a normal dryer. Seriously. I like the one-knob user interface. It does a great job at detecting when the heat should go off, and any remaining dampness gets taken care of safely by the blowing air as the knob winds down. (It isn't able to stop itself until the timer is done, it's only able to stop blowing heat). It doesn't buzz when it's finished! Hallelujah! It's small and light. It requires no installation. It has a window! yay! December 2014 update: I had one of the plastic nubs break on the "exhaust vent shroud" in the filter assembly. I called customer support and dealing with them was a pleasure, they had a new one queued up to ship to me with no fuss. When on hold there is no advertisement or music. This company understand user experience, both in their products and their support.

    Verified Purchase

    Great so far! Some of the reviews kind of scared me. One day in working great clothes dry reasonably fast and lint trap and filter work fantastic. Have dried a massive backlog of clothes been running it non stop for 2 days. It comfortably fits 2 pairs of jeans and a couple shirts and takes about an hour and a half. I'm a size 40 with XL shirts.
