7.4 cu. ft. Capacity Get plenty of room to dry the large loads you washed in the matching front load washer. This 7.4 cu. ft. dryer easily handles bulky items like comforters and sleeping bags.

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

Intuitive Controls Let the dryer guide you to the right cycle combinations or customize up to 36 of your own to get the right type of fabric care for whatever you're drying.

Wrinkle Shield™ Plus Option with Steam Help keep wrinkles from setting into clean, dry fabrics. The Wrinkle Shield™ Plus option with Steam uses tumbling and steam for up to 150 minutes after the cycle ends or until you open the dryer door for improved wrinkle-fighting performance.

Steam Refresh Cycle Release wrinkles and reduce odors with the Steam Refresh cycle. It uses water and heat to get clothes ready to wear without rewashing.

Sanitize Cycle The Sanitize cycle provides care for your clothes in the dryer while eliminating 99.9% of common household bacteria.

Static Reduce Option Help decrease static with the Static Reduce option, which combines a spray of mist with tumbling after the load is dry.

EcoBoost™ Option Use less energy while getting great drying performance with the EcoBoost™ option. This option saves energy by using less heat and an extended cycle time.

Quad Baffles Four baffles tumble clothes in a randomized pattern, allowing items to open up freely. This helps increase the effectiveness of the dryer for small loads.

Stainless Steel Dryer Drum Clothes are gently cradled as they tumble around the smooth surface of this drum's stainless steel construction.

Dryer Rack Place unique or delicate items like sweaters, pillows, hats and tennis shoes on the Dryer Rack for tumble-free drying. This rack attaches inside the drum and stays in one place throughout the cycle. Rack ships separately after online product registration.

Closet-Depth Fit Get a space-saving design with closet-depth fit that allows for more flexible installation in your laundry space.

Laundry Pedestals Raise your dryer for easier loading and unloading. Optional laundry pedestals also provide space-saving storage for detergent, dryer sheets and other supplies.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Spinning on greased grooves

Rob231 9/23/2019

Wife got tired of struggling with the old dryer so we bought the new Whirlpool unit. Now she's happy, I'm very happy. BTW. It's been so long since we shopped for the dryers we had no idea of the convenient and inovative features available now.

I bought my dryer about 5 weeks ago and have found it easy to use. I especially like that it is quiet both as it washes and when it notifies me of a completed wash.

Misrepresentation

Not happy already used! 4/24/2019

I bought this expensive dryer because it was advertised as having the steam cycle. When it was being installed and I asked about the steam feature I was informed the steam kit did not come with it and I needed to purchase and install it separately!! Surely, the steam kit should have been included in the original purchase? I cannot find information on what I need to buy and how/who to install. If I had known this to be the case I would not have spent $1,200 on what is to me an average dryer.
