Black with Precision Moisture Sensor and Electronic Control Panel

This 5.8 cubic feet electric dryer has 7 Auto Dry cycles and 4 Dryness Levels which can be programmed easily through the Electronic Control Panel. Its time setting starts from a 15-minute cycle to a 90-minute long tumble dry. The Precision Moisture Sensor prevents laundry from over drying by shutting off the system when the clothes are dry enough.


Interior Features
  • The dryer's 7 Auto-Dry cycles include the basic settings: Normal, Heavy Duty and Delicates. A 25-minute cycle called Quick is also added. There are 4 temperature levels with a no-heat setting called Air Fluff. Choose between the Damp Dry, Normal, Less Dry, and More Dry for the laundry's Dryness Level.
  • To prevent laundry from getting too much heat, the Precision Moisture Sensor routinely checks the humidity inside the drum while on a cycle. The dryer is turned off when the sensor detects that the garments are ready. Aside from this, the Tumble Care Dry and Auto Shrink Guard options are also used for laundry care.
  • The 5.8 cubic feet drum is made of stainless steel. It is fitted with an interior light, which automatically turns on when the door opens and then turns off when the door shuts. A Quick Clean Lint Screen is fixed inside the drum to filter stray fibers from clothes.
