Additional Features

Wrinkle Shield™ Plus Option with Steam

The Wrinkle Shield™ Plus option with Steam helps keep wrinkles from setting into your clean clothes with intermittent tumbling after the dryer cycle ends. Now you can enjoy the added benefit of steam for even better wrinkle-fighting performance.

Quad Baffles

Four 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.

The 8.8 cu. ft. capacity dryer offers enough space to care for loads from the washer with ease. You'll even be able to dry bulky items like comforters and sleeping bags.

EcoBoost™ Option

The EcoBoost™ option saves energy by using less heat and extending cycle time. You’ll enjoy great drying performance while using less energy1.

Static Reduce Option

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