What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from control panel failed We bought this dryer approx 5 years ago. There are only two of us in the household so on average 1 load of clothes a week. So that is 260 loads before the control panel went out. It costs 1/2 the price of a new dryer to replace the control panel. If you have a family and several loads a week this is not the dryer for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sensor dry works great! I've had this dryer since March and have been pleased. I don't use all of the features on it but i think i need to unhook the water for the steam feature, i have to leave the door open or it smells damp inside the tub. Otherwise has been a great dryer!

I love the variety of was cycles, the capacity and the noise level (barely noticeable). Cleans my clothes the way they should be cleaned - what more could you want?

I have had my dryer for 18months now. I would like assistance on how to reset the dryer once the dryer cycle is done the dryer continues to operate. 

Asked by: Lisa M Johnson
We appreciate your interest int his dryer. The description provided suggests the use of the WRINKLE CARE feature. Selecting this option will tumble the load periodically for up to 3 hours after the selected cycle, or until the door is opened. This is helpful in preventing wrinkles when you are unable to remove items from the dryer immediately. This information is found on page 40 of your owner’s manual.
