Quad Baffles

There are potentially many reasons for why your clothes aren't drying completely, but with Quad Baffles, you're taking a necessary step to make sure they are. Instead of the usual three baffles, the four shorter baffle design tumbles clothes randomly while making sure that items that start in the middle of the drum don't stay there. Overall a more thorough and balanced drying process.

Sanitize Cycle

Provide much-needed allergy relief for your loved ones with the Sanitize Cycle. Because the cycle uses high heat and steam, it eliminates 99.9% of the most common household bacteria, allowing you and your loved ones to live happier and healthier.

EcoBoost Option

Still looking for that little extra oomph in energy efficiency? For washers, the EcoBoost Option gives you the ability to lower water temperatures and increase tumbling action. In dryers, only a portion of heat is used while cycle times are extended. Both lower energy use but still generate great, clean results.

Steam Refresh Cycle

The Steam Refresh cycle uses water and heat to relax wrinkles and reduce odors from clothes. It’s ideal for those items you’d rather not rewash.

Tap Touch Controls with Memory

Your appliances are starting to catch up with your phones and tablets. With Tap Touch Controls you get a polished, intuitive interface where you can access every one of your machine's functions. It also remembers the settings you used last for ease and convenience. Sticky buttons are now a thing of the past.

Wrinkle Shield™ Plus Option

If you know you're going to be away from the dryer when you're cycle is complete, just activate the Wrinkle Shield™ Plus Option. The dryer will tumble your laundry every five minutes for up to 140 minutes, ensuring that your load leaves the dryer wrinkle free.

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 over-drying.

Gas Dryers 7.3 cu. ft. Duet® Steam Dryer

Help prevent damage caused by overdrying and reduce wrinkles with the ENERGY STAR qualified 7.3 cu. ft. Duet® dryer. The Wrinkle Shield™ Plus option with Steam helps keep wrinkles from setting into your clean clothes with steam intermittent tumbling after the dryer cycle ends. Reduce overdrying with Advanced Moisture Sensing, which uses three sensors to read incoming and outgoing air temperatures while monitoring moisture levels inside the dryer, so the cycle ends when everything is perfectly dry. For even more efficient drying, four shorter, staggered baffles increase the effectiveness of the dryer for small loads and promote more balanced tumbling. And, it's easy to start drying faster with Tap Touch controls with Memory, which allow direct access to dryer functions and even remember your last cycle and settings for a quick touch start.
