White with Precision Moisture Sensor and Air Fluff

White with Precision Moisture Sensor and Air Fluff

Built with the Precision Moisture Sensor, this 7.0 cubic feet dryer has a device that supervises moisture level inside the drum, adjusts temperature and prevents wrinkling of clothes due to over drying. The Air Fluff option is a no-heat temperature setting used to air-dry heat-sensitive items. The dryer's 7 cycles include Heavy, Normal and Delicates.


Interior Features
  • Different settings for time, dryness, and temperature are available. Temperature levels range from Very Hot down to a No-Heat cycle. The dryness of clothes can be set to Normal, Less Dry and More Dry. The Damp Dry setting is suitable for clothes that need ironing.
  • The Dry Sense technology claims to dry clothes more faster, while the Precision Moisture Sensor helps dry laundry with accuracy. These two features ensure that the garments come out dry but not fried.
  • The drum's capacity is 7.0 cubic feet. It is made of painted steel and fitted with a drum light and Quick Clean lint filter. For air-drying, a drying rack can be purchased and placed inside the drum.
