Wild Cherry Red with TrueSteam and Sensor Dry System

This Ultra Capacity gas dryer is equipped with the TrueSteam technology. This system uses steam in drying, making clothes free from wrinkles and odors. It has 9 drying programs and 7 special options, giving you more setting selection for different kinds of fabric. The sturdy stainless steel exterior is painted with attractive colors and fitted with a plastic control panel with LED display.

Interior Features
  • Special dryer program called SteamFresh dries and refreshes up to 20 items in one load. Choose the Ultra Delicates program for the most fragile items, jeans and jackets can be dried thoroughly with the Heavy Duty cycle, while decorative pillows and stuffed toys can be sanitized using the SteamSanitary option. EasyIron setting dampens the fabric lightly making ironing a breeze.
