Kenmore 600 (Model #6962) capacity Electric Dryer 7.0 cu. ft.

This large capacity dryer that comes in stylish white and, more importantly, useful features like the auto moisture sensor, which determines how long the dry cycle should be depending on the amount of moisture in the load.

Key features

  • The auto moisture sensor detects the moisture in the load and adjusts the drying cycle accordingly.
  • The wide-opening hamper door makes loading and unloading loads easy and convenient.
  • The 11 cycles for drying allow you to dry various kinds of fabric safely.
  • Delicates can be dried safely with the air fluff feature, which dries the loads in air and without heat for 30 minutes.
  • Wrinkle Guard is perfect for keeping wrinkles to a minimum by tumbling dry without heat for 40 minutes.
  • The large capacity makes it the perfect match for the large capacity Kenmore washer.
  • The drum light illuminates the interior of the drum so you can see what you are looking for.
  • The powder coated drum prevents chipping and rusting that could damage the fabric.
  • The rotary controls in the silver, white console are easy to turn and won't slip even when wet.


    The main advantage with this unit is the moisture sensor, which saves the need to check on the dryer every 15 minutes. The audible alarm lets you know if the load has finished drying so you can unload clothes that are completely dry.

    It also has numerous drying cycles to choose from, allowing you to choose the best option
    for different types of fabric. Clothes come out wrinkle-free most of the time because of the tumbling dry action, and the air fluff feature makes drying delicates safe since it doesn't use heat. The rotary controls are also easy to use, even when wet.


    One of the most common complaints about this washer is that it stops working after a few weeks of use. Some customers do not cite specific problems, but overall the problem has something to do with craftsmanship and the quality of materials.

    The good thing is that problems arise when the unit is still under warranty so replacements are easy to get. Another common problem is lint blockage in the vents. Missing regular cleanings usually result in lint blockage. Other parts that tend to break down early include the controls and the thermal vents, as well as the fuse. The unit also overheats when the thermal vents break down.
