Interior Features

It has been designed to cover only the most basic cycles, which include the casual, delicates, normal, and heavy duty cycles. There are 5 temperature settings and 4 dryness level selections to somehow increase the programmability of the dryer.
  • The Save Your Settings feature can help the user achieve the exact same combination of cycle, options, temperature and dryness level used the last time the laundry was done. This way, the user does not have to spend extra time figuring out what he did the last time.
  • The Moisture Sensor helps in detecting the amount of moisture found in the particular load. This way, the appliance can ensure that it is performing according to the needs of the user. The user will choose what dryness level he prefers anyway. Some users prefer thoroughly dried garments and some prefer slightly damp laundry, for example.
