Quick Refresh Steam Cycle

Tumbles 2-5 items in the dryer, letting steam technology relax wrinkles and remove odors. In just 15 minutes, clothes go from lying there to ready-to-wear.

Enhanced Touch-Up Steam Cycle

Steam refreshes clothes in the dryer, helping to reduce wrinkles and odors. Clothes go from lying there to ready to wear without rewashing. An innovative Y-connector draws from your existing water line with no need to manually fill a reservoir.

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.

Direct Water Installation Method

A "Y" connector delivers water from washer's existing water line directly to the dryer for easier installation and hassle-free steaming.

Quad Baffles

Four shorter, baffles tumble clothes in a randomized pattern, allowing items to open up more freely. This helps increase the effectiveness of the dryer for small loads and promote better, more balanced tumbling.

Reversible Door

The reversible door gives you the flexibility to set the dryer door to open to the right or to the left, depending on what best suits your laundry space.

EcoBoost™ Option

The EcoBoost™ option saves energy by using less heat and extending cycle time. You’ll enjoy great drying performance while using less energy.

Whirlpool® Smart Front Load Electric Dryer with 6th Sense Live™ technology is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't ask for more I finally got the dryer and I no longer need dryer sheets. Everything always smells great. It dries as dry as you want it. Make your own cycle. Lengthen or shorten theirs. It even tells you when to clean the air screen going out of your house, so less chance of fire from that. I just love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect machine We are so happy with this unit. We love the steam feature, the intermitient fluff after the cycle has ended, the easy to use options with the large LED screen, and most of all the energy star rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome machine!! The features on this machine are awesome. Connecting the machines on the wifi was a little tricky, however it was made complicated by my somewhat old network routers that don't have WPS. Reading the instructions before trying to setup access to wifi was instrumental in making this easy. Once i used a WPS enabled wireless router, connecting them was a breeze. The switch and the machines did it themselves. I bought these machines specifically because I use NEST thermostats in my house. It's amazing how the machines will know we're not home and continue tumbling and adding air to prevent any smell to the clothes until we can get them out. The machines also will send us text messages when the load is done which is helpful because we can do whatever else we need to and not worry to constantly check the status. The App is also a great way to check the status of the load. These machines replaced some fairly old top loads that I had, and the first load of whites in these machines were whiter than ever. Being able to load the detergent and forgetting about it until notified by the machines is also a plus. I don't think about my laundry anymore. I just follow the machine's instructions. All in all, this is a great machine and the best investment i made in a while. Yes, they were a bit on the expensive side, but with all the features and the fact the washer uses very little detergent and electricity makes it absolutely worth it. Highly recommended to anybody.
