  • The AutoDry system makes sure that each load gets only the right temperature and time needed to dry all items thoroughly.

This feature also reduces your dryer's energy consumption.

  • A white-on-white E-coat top finish gives you a simple yet attractive dryer.
  • A large, reversible side-swing door makes loading and unloading very easy.
  • Electro mechanical controls are located on
