A high-efficiency dryer like this one is made to save time, energy and money. The 7.6 cu. ft. capacity easily handles large loads from the matching washer to help you do fewer loads each week. Relax wrinkles and refresh clothes with the enhanced touch up steam cycle rather than spending time ironing. Advanced Moisture Sensing uses three built-in sensors to monitor moisture levels and stop the drying when everything is dry. Selecting the EcoBoost option can save even more energy and $1,157 in lifetime energy costs. Use the quick dry cycle with the quick wash cycle on a cabrio platinum washer and let the industry's fastest top load pair finish a small load in less than 48 minutes.


Features:

  • Quick Dry Cycle

Enhanced Touch-Up Steam Cycle

  • Uses steam to relax wrinkles and refresh dry clothes in as little as 20 minutes.

Direct Water Installation Method

  • A "Y" connector delivers water from washer's existing water line directly to the dryer for easier installation and hassle-free steaming.

Dryer Window

  • A window on the front of the dryer door allows you to see the clothes as they tumble.

Advanced Moisture Sensing System

  • This high-efficiency dryer uses three built-in sensors that read incoming air temperature and outgoing air temperature while monitoring moisture levels inside the dryer, so the drying cycle can end when everything is perfectly dry. This saves time and energy as well as helping to prevent overdrying.

7.6 Cu. Ft. Capacity

  • "Featuring the industry's largest available capacity,* these dryer models offer a 7.6 cu. ft. capacity drum that adapts to both large and small loads. *Among leading brands."

EcoBoost™ option

  • Saves energy by using a portion of the dryer’s dual heating element and extending cycle time. You’ll get great drying performance while saving money on utility bills.

Eco Monitor

  • The Eco Monitor allows you to see the eco-friendliness of each cycle or option you choose. The display rates energy use to show your overall eco-performance.

Wrinkle Shield™ Plus option

  • Help keep wrinkles from setting in to your clean clothes with intermittent tumbling after the dryer cycle ends. The process lasts for up to 150 minutes or until you open the dryer door.

"Can't believe how the washer gets clothes clean with so little water. It's a LOT of washer, and I'm grateful I'm not any shorter in regard to removing clothes from the appliance. Since I hadn't had a dryer in months, I'm so totally enjoying EVERYTHING about my new Cabrio dryer...no negatives! The pair looks quite "classy" in my laundry room:)" Will Recommend: Yes

" had have this dryer for a little over a year now. I have had absolutely no problems with it in any way. There is a learning curve when you are first upgrading to high efficiency. A lot of different settings to get used to and a lot of choices to make on how you want your clothes handled. It's a whole lot different than the old school dryer with on/off and high/med/low as your only options! This is very easily figured out, though. Nice large capacity for drying the bulkiest of items. I regulary wash/dry my king size comforter! I will mention something that is probably obvious to most. I was really interested in this dryer for the steam options. However, it didn't occur to me that my laundry room is set up where the washer and dryer do not set side by side. They set across from eachother. The steam feature on the dryer is available from a hose that attaches from the dryer to the same water lines the washer uses. This can not be accomplished if the washer and dryer are not setting side by side." Will Recommend: Yes
