However, if you are an American with a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 877-695-2757 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for any American with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

Advanced Moisture Sensing System Three built-in sensors read incoming air temperature and outgoing air temperature while monitoring moisture levels inside the dryer. This helps the drying cycle end when everything is perfectly dry, saving time and energy and helping to prevent overdrying.

Quad Baffles Get better, more balanced tumbling and increased effectiveness on small loads with the unique design of four shorter, staggered baffles. Now, larger items dry more evenly while smaller items keep tumbling without getting stuck riding the baffles.

Tap Touch Controls with Memory Start your next load quickly using the sleek control interface of the Tap Touch controls with Memory. This technology allows direct access to dryer functions and even remembers your last cycle and settings to save you time.

SilentSteel™ Dryer Drum Metal buttons and zippers make less noise as they tumble, thanks to a unique sound-dampening material that surrounds the stainless steel dryer drum.

ENERGY STAR® Qualified ENERGY STAR® qualified models exceed government standards to help conserve natural resources and save money on your utility bills.

Stainless Steel Dryer Drum The drum's stainless steel construction presents a smooth surface that helps deliver ultimate gentleness, cradling clothes as they tumble.

EcoBoost™ Option Use less energy while still getting great drying performance with the EcoBoost™ option that uses less heat and extended cycle times for greater energy efficiency.

Steam Refresh Cycle Clothes are ready to wear, thanks to the Steam Refresh cycle. It releases wrinkles and reduces odors without rewashing.

Wrinkle Shield™ Plus option with Steam Help keep wrinkles from setting into your clean clothes with intermittent tumbling after the dryer cycle ends. The process lasts for up to 140 minutes or until you open the dryer door. This model uses the added benefit of steam for even better wrinkle-fighting performance.

Static Reduce Option Reduces static by combining a spray of mist with tumbling after the load is dry.

Sanitize Cycle Provides excellent care for your clothes while eliminating 99.9% of three common household bacteria without washing. Bacteria tested were K. pneumonia, staphylococcus aureus and P. aureginosa.

Quiet Dry Ultra Noise Reduction System Keep operational sounds inside the dryer and out of living areas with sound-absorbing materials around the dryer drum, thanks to the Quiet Dry noise reduction system.

Estimated Time Remaining LED Display Displays the estimated time remaining in the cycle, counting down until it is finished.
