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.

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.

Tap Touch Controls with Memory
The sleek Tap Touch control interface allows direct access to dryer functions and remembers your last cycle and settings.

7.4 cu. ft. Capacity
The 7.4 cu. ft. capacity dryer offers enough space to care for loads from the Duet® washer with ease. You'll even be able to dry bulky items like comforters and sleeping bags.

SilentSteel™ Dryer Drum
Metal buttons and zippers make less noise as they tumble, thanks to a unique sound-dampening material that surrounds the stainless steel dryer drum.

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.

Steam Refresh Cycle
The Steam Refresh cycle uses water and heat to relax wrinkles and reduce odors from clothes in just 22 minutes. It’s ideal for those items you’d rather not rewash.

Wrinkle Shield™ Plus Option With Steam
Help keep wrinkles from setting into your clean clothes for up to 140 minutes. These models use the added benefit of steam for even better wrinkle-fighting performance.

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, staphylococcus aureus and P. aureginosa.

Quick Dry Cycle
The Quick Dry cycle dries a small load in just 15 minutes.

Quiet Dry Ultra Noise Reduction System
Keep operational sounds inside the dryer and out of living areas with sound-absorbing materials around the dryer drum, thanks to the Quiet Dry noise reduction system.

Estimated Time Remaining LED Display
Displays the estimated time remaining in the cycle, counting down until it is finished.
