Gas dryer for the size of your household

One important consideration to think of when buying a new clothes dryer is the maximum capacity. There are dryers that can handle up to 9.0 cu. ft. of laundry, but does your family need a machine this big?
As a rule of the thumb, a drier should have twice as much capacity of it’s matching washer. A dryer with a capacity of 7.0 cu. ft. can fit in 9-15 full sized towels. If you want to spend less time doing laundry, then a dryer (and washer) with a bigger capacity might be the right one for you.

Gas dryer brands

When it comes to gas dryers, there are several brands that you may be considering. Many of the most well known companies in the industry have been around for a long time, giving them a name that is trustworthy. There are also brands that are newer, but have been racking great positive reviews from customers. So which one is right for you?

We reviewed the best of the best in gas dryers to help you in making this decision. Based on features, technology and most importantly, real people’s experiences and reviews, we ranked the top gas dryers of 2022. Check them out!

Choose additional features

Modern gas dryers come with so many additional features. Technology has advanced so much in recent years and gave birth to a plethora of new features to choose from. On the more physical side, you can choose between rotary or a touch panel. Maybe you want a gas dryers with and impeller instead of an agitator. Interior lighting might be important for you, or maybe not. When it comes to features, you might look for a dryer with steam, which is really handy but also gives the machine a price bump. Maybe a simple, uncomplicated dryer is right for you or maybe you want one with 35 wash cycles! The right dryer for each person is always different.

Click on the feature you are interested in and you will be redirected to a page shows the best gas dryers which have that capability. We’ve put these gas dryers under the microscope and checked out their real-life performances. Moreover, these gas dryers have consistently gotten the best ratings and scores from end-users, just like you! So you know they’re the real deal.

What to look for when buying an gas dryer

We want to make choosing your next gas dryer simple. With so many options, brands, features and technology to choose from, we know it can be overwhelming. But don’t panic! We are here to help you. Let’s take it step by step until you find the best one for you.
Fuel Source
The first step is choosing what fuel source you want your dryer to have, and it looks like you already have that in the bag since you are here. Gas as a fuel source is the more cost-effective option if you plan to use your dryer for more than 5 years. The initial cost in procuring a gas dryer is indeed more expensive than an electric dryer, but the operating cost is cheaper in the long run.
This or That

Front load dryers are made to physically match front load washers. These dryers can usually be stacked on top of their matching washers, which is great if you want to save space. You can of course, also put them side by side or set them up on a matching pedestal, which are usually sold separately.

Top load dryers are made to aesthetically match, you guess it, top load washers. These dryers have their controls in the rear usually, and can’t be stacked. This type of dryer has been around for a long, long time and many customers have used them before, which makes it very familiar and comfortable to choose.

Perfect Fit

When choosing a new dryer, it is important to consider how much space you have in your laundry room or closet. You may find the most perfect gas dryer in the world, but if it is an inch too big for your space, you can’t use it, and you would have wasted time and some serious $$$.

Most (not all!) standard dryers are 27 inches wide. If you want to place your washer and dryer side by side, you need at least one inch of space between them. You also possibly need 6 inches behind the machine to accommodate for venting and wires.

Something often overlooked is the size of the entranceway to your home all the way to your laundry room. If your dryer can fit through the closet door, but not through the front door, then you can’t buy it.

Vent Exhaust
Another thing related to measurements and positioning is the location of the exhaust, that is if you are choosing a vented gas dryer. Move on to the next one if you are buying a non-vented dryer. Consider the location of your venting system. Some dryers come with just rear or side venting, and some have 4-way venting. While some dryers have long venting capability of up to 120 ft., it is a fact that the shorter the venting is, the more effective it will be.
Dryer Capacity

The size of your laundry load will obviously differ when you are single versus when you are married with 10 kids. It is important to choose the correct maximum capacity to avoid overloading your machine as it can potentially decrease the lifespan and cause mechanical troubles. As a rule of the thumb, a dryer’s capacity should be about twice as much as it’s matching washer, but of course this is not a strict rule, a little less than twice should be just fine.

Look at the actual capacity of the gas dryer rather than describing words like large, extra large or ultra large.

Price

Ah, we arrive at the true factor that limits our choice: money. Naturally, the most modern gas dryers with all the features you can dream of are more costly. The most inexpensive dryers can be as cheap as $400 and the most expensive ones can be a whooping $1500 or more. That is a big range!

When choosing a dryer, consider not only the capacity and features in relation to the pricing, but also the manufacturer’s warranty. Make sure to choose a dryer that is known to be durable and has great customer service. Whether you choose a dryer in the lower end or the higher end, you will still be using your hard-earned money and we want you to get the best bang for your buck!

Features, Technology and Options
  1. Number of temperature and drying cycles: While some people want to have many choices when it comes to drying clothes, some people want it simple. The simplest machines will have as little as three dry cycles, making choosing easy. Some dryers, on the other hand will have as much as 35 dry cycles for every kind of load you can think of.
  2. Controls: Do you want a dryer with a touch panel or a physical rotary dial? You have to decide what kind of interface you prefer. Some dryers can also be controlled by a smart device. Is that important for you? If so, then you have to choose a model which can be connected to the wi-fi.
  3. Sensor Dry: Many dryers have this technology wherein a built-in sensor monitors the temperature and humidity in the dryer to prevent over drying.
  4. Steam Option: Steam is effective in removing wrinkles and refreshing clothes. If steam is an important feature for you, you have to consider a machine with this function.
  5. Sanitize Cycle: Many dryers now feature a Sanitize Cycle which kills bacteria and germs by using very high temperatures. This cycle uses a lot of energy so it is more expensive to run.

Many other features are available depending on the brand and price of the dryer you choose. Consider each one carefully as additional features usually mean additional costs.

Frequently asked questions about buying a gas dryer

A gas dryer is fueled by either natural gas or propane to generate power and heat.
Surprisingly, you can. But as discussed above, your dryer needs natural gas or propane to generate heat. So when you run a dryer without gas, you can only dry without heat. Settings like Air Dry can be used without problems.
Th durability of a product is highly dependent on the manufacturing and quality of materials. That said, most dryers are expected to last at least a decade.
As mentioned above, gas dryers usually last 10 years. If your dryer is approaching the 10-year mark, it might be a good idea to start looking for your next one even if your current one hasn’t shown any signs of malfunction yet.
The price range is wide, the cheapest ones from $400 and the most expensive ones costing up to $1500 (or more!). Generally, gas dryers are more expensive to buy than electric dryers.
Without proper installation and maintenance, there is a risk for carbon monoxide poisoning with gas dryers. That is why it is important to have a professional install your new dryer. Carbon Monoxide is a toxic gas that is colorless, odorless, tasteless and difficult to detect. It can cause flu-like effects and even death.
Most gas dryers must be vented so it can release the heat outside of your home. While it is uncommon in the USA, non-vented dryers have existed in European and Asian countries for decades.
Thanks to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star program, it’s possible to compare energy costs on various products. Energy Star promotes energy savings through the sharing of information between companies to help identify and promote energy-efficient products so consumers can save money and protect the environment. Energy Star ratings show an appliance’s typical energy consumption per year in kWh (kilo watt hours). The lower the number, the more cost efficient it is to run.
