The Bravos dryer also boasts of other great features.

Key features

- GentleBreeze Drying System with IntelliDry Sensor: This dryer automatically senses moisture levels, allowing it to determine when clothes are already dry. This prevents fabric damage and overdrying, while saving energy at the same time. Thanks to this technology, the dryer can adjust temperature and drying times for the most efficient, optimum performance.
- 9 automatic cycles with 5 temperature settings: This dryer can handle a wide variety of fabric and garments, making it capable of answering your every drying need.
- Rapid Refresh and Custom Refresh steam-enhanced cycles: Using steam technology, these cycles remove odor and wrinkles from fabric. You’re assured of laundry that always looks and smells fresh.
- 150-minute Wrinkle Prevent option: You can delay unloading your laundry for up to two and a half hours without worrying about unpleasant odor or wrinkles setting in. This option gently tumbles laundry after the end of a cycle, keeping clothes clean and fresh even while they stay in the dryer.
- Last cycle recall: This is a time-saving and convenient feature for users.
- Smooth Balance Suspension System with Quiet Series 400 Sound Package:
Vibration and noise are greatly reduced, ensuring smooth, quiet operation. Your dryer can be installed in any part of the house without you worrying about noise or inconvenience.
- Direct Feed/Easy Plumb (DFP) Water Hook Up: Installation and set-up of your dryer is worry- and hassle-free.
- Adjustable end-of-cycle and damp dry signals with estimated time remaining display: You’ll always be on top of what’s happening to your laundry, without having to monitor the entire cycle.


The Bravos dryer’s great performance equally matches its great capacity. All the features combine to give you fresh, wrinkle-free clothes without the problems of shrinkage or overdrying.

The wrinkle prevent option, last cycle recall, and end-of-cycle and damp dry signals make this dryer very convenient to use. Even the busiest household will find it easy to fit drying the laundry in the long list of tasks that need to be done, and the added convenience this dryer offers frees up your time for other activities.


The Bravos dryer’s price range of US$1,000-1,200 may make it out of reach for those with a limited budget. The power cord is sold separately and you have to pay more for the black, silver, and red models. Still, the time and energy you save, thanks to its functionality and convenient features, more than make up for its price.
