The Advanced Moisture Sensing System monitors heat and moisture levels to automatically end the cycle, preventing overydrying and damages to your clothes.

Features:

8.8 Cu. Ft. Capacity
The 8.7 cu. ft. capacity dryer dries more than four baskets of laundry in one load.

Advanced Moisture Sensing
Advanced Moisture Sensing continuously monitors heat and moisture levels to automatically end the cycle when clothes are perfectly dry, helping to prevent overdrying and damage to fabrics.

Quad Baffles
Four shorter, baffles tumble clothes in a randomized pattern, allowing items to open up more freely. This helps increase the effectiveness of the dryer for small loads and promote better, more balanced tumbling.

Intuitive Touch Controls with Memory
Intuitive Touch Controls with Memory always ask the right questions. With easy "what" and "how" controls, they effortlessly help you create customized cycles. Plus, they even remember your last settings to save you time.

Estimated Time Remaining LED Display

EcoBoost Option
The EcoBoost option saves energy by using less heat and extending cycle time. You'll enjoy great drying performance while using less energy.

Static Reduce Option
Reduces static by combining a spray of mist with tumbling after the load is dry.

Sanitize Cycle
Provides excellent care for your clothes while eliminating 99.9% of three common household bacteria without washing. Bacteria tested were K. pneumonia, stapylococcus aureus and P. aureginosa.

Quiet Dry Noise Reduction System

I purchased a washer and dryer and they held onto it for me until I had closing. Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart. The delivery was fantastic. They carefully brought both the washer and dryer and it was like they were moving themselves......

Another exceptional purchase - this dryer is amazing - no more "rolled" sheets or blankets bunched in the dryer still wet in the middle. No more over/under dried items and no more wrinkles. Love this machine!

after 2 months of use we have seen a reduction in both water use and electricity. clothes are clean as can be! as with all washers when over stuffed with large items the spinning is impacted. it automatically adjust the spinning so the machine doesn`t bounce all over the place. this leads to wet items. o

Clothes very wrinkled

By  from Nashville, TN, United States  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 2

Looks great and lots of drying setting -- but this dryer drives us crazy because the clothes come out so insanely wrinkled. I get them out as soon as they are dry but it doesn't matter. And I've used the wrinkle release steam feature but doesn't matter. My old dryer worked better than this one. :(
