This dryer seems to be a thoroughly average appliance, based on the Hotpoint HTDX100EM reviews we read. The unit has a 6-cubic-foot capacity, a temperature-based automatic-dry cycle (which is less reliable than a moisture sensor), and a wrinkle-shield cycle. As a Hotpoint, it claims a place underneath the respected GE brand umbrella. Extra features like an interior light, an end-of-cycle buzzer, and a delicate cycle are notably absent, however.
This clothes dryer earns generally positive overall ratings from users posting Hotpoint HTDX100EM reviews online, although consumers don't offer much specific praise. At Home Depot reviewers say it has all the features they need, works quickly and well, and costs less than most other dryers.
Complaints about the Hotpoint HTDX100EM (starting at $332) are minor and few. One otherwise satisfied user posting at Home Depot was put out to discover that the power cord was a separate and additional expense. A few users say the lint trap leaves something to be desired, noting that it's flimsy and leaves space where lint can fall into the dryer. Despite a few reports of lemons, however, Hotpoint HTDX100EM reviews don't indicate a high repair rate or a pattern of machine failure.
In the end, the Hotpoint HTDX100EM seems to function dependably and please most consumers who use it. If the picture painted by Hotpoint HTDX100EM reviews also makes this model look generic and unexciting, well, at least it gets clothes dry. The Hotpoint HTDX100EM is probably best for buyers who don't demand sex appeal from their appliances.
