Advanced Moisture Sensing System
Three built-in sensors read incoming air temperature and outgoing air temperature while monitoring moisture levels inside the dryer. This helps the drying cycle end when everything is perfectly dry, saving time and energy and helping to prevent overdrying. 

Tap Touch Controls with Memory
Start your next load quickly using the sleek control interface of the Tap Touch controls with Memory. This technology allows direct access to dryer functions and even remembers your last cycle and settings to save you time. 

EcoBoost™ Option
Use less energy while still getting great drying performance with the EcoBoost™ option that uses less heat and extended cycle times for greater energy efficiency.
Steam Refresh Cycle
Clothes are ready to wear, thanks to the Steam Refresh cycle. It releases wrinkles and reduces odors without rewashing.
Wrinkle Shield™ Option
Help keep wrinkles from setting into your clean clothes with intermittent tumbling after the dryer cycle ends. The process lasts for up to 140 minutes or until you open the dryer door. 

Quad Baffles
Get better, more balanced tumbling and increased effectiveness on small loads with the unique design of four shorter, staggered baffles. Now, larger items dry more evenly while smaller items keep tumbling without getting stuck riding the baffles. 

7.4 Cu. Ft. Capacity
Dry bulky items like comforters and sleeping bags in this 7.4 cu. ft. capacity dryer that provides enough space to care for loads from the matching washer with ease. 

Undercounter Installation
Able to be installed under a standard countertop, this dryer provides the flexible installation to easily fit in your laundry space. 

ENERGY STAR® Qualified
