Image Feature

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.

Image Feature

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.

Image Feature

Steam Refresh Cycle

Clothes are ready to wear, thanks to the Steam Refresh cycle. It releases wrinkles and reduces odors without rewashing.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Mostly great, but a few deficiencies

Ted 10/9/2017

Does a great job in general, but three annoyances: 1. The end-of-cycle signal is too quiet! Barely audible outside the laundry room. 2. No drum light, and no way to add one. 3. Clothes often don't get dry on delicate cycle; takes running twice.

Anthony & Katie 9/26/2017

We love how quickly this dryer is and the sensor dry on this dryer. We've had dryers in the past that say they are sensor dryers, but leave your clothes damp or take hours to finish. Not this one. It's quick and gets the job done. We love that it refreshes the clothes if we can't get to them right away.

Brooklyn girl 8/7/2017

Dries very well. Nice modern design. Fits well over our Duet pedestal but a little off in color. Doesn't have a inside light and didn't realize it till after it was delivered, its kind of irritating. The next model up I believe does but other than that a really good Dryer so far.

Looks good, works not so good

Mike 7/25/2017

I was reluctant to write a review about this product as I wasn't inclined to bash this product, but the relentless requests for me to review my dryer has forced me to share the truth. I purchased my dryer to replace an older model that failed after 12 years. I had no time to research the replacement, so I studied in the store and purchased what I thought to be a visually appealing washer with a large load capacity and plenty of settings to get the job done. All of the above is true, but I can't tell you how often I have to run the load a second time to allow for a fully dry load. Total disappoint, but hey the next time I'll do my homework.

Another upgrade

00NUTT 7/24/2017

Ok I bought a set as the price was right while looking for kitchen appliances for the soon to be new house. I currently had a whirlpool dryer that was 14 years old. Still worked but looked like heck. So a week later this beast arrives at my house. It was stunning! I started installing right away as I already removed and sold the other. Installation is straight forward. Keep your old power cord from the old dryer or make sure you buy the right cord for the plug in your house. Included in the extras was also the hose and y adapter for the steam function. So now everything was hooked up and ready it was time to get with it. I washed and dried everything in the house. Dryer was a little loud first few cycle but then quited down after it started to break in. Drys clothes nicely and they don't feel like they gonna catch fire. I have also used the dewrinkle function on my wife's scrubs and they came out fabulous. There is an accessory I want that I wish came with it and that's a drying rack that goes in it for sweaters or shoes. So I think you get the bang for the buck that most people are looking for. Buy it and you will be happy.

I bought this three weeks ago and am disappointed. I should have checked to make sure it had a drum light but at this price point I assumed it did. My pair is stacked and I can't see the settings from below and I'm not short. It is quiet and fast but I wish it had a light !!

It's okay

Ben 7/10/2017

I've had this dryer for about 6 months and honestly don't particularly care for it. It's loud and doesn't dry very well. On a normal drying cycle, I typically have to run it twice because clothes are never fully dry, no matter how heavy the load. That said, the steaming function works pretty well. It's the only reason I'm not giving it 1 star. I would not recommend this dryer even still.
