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 overdrying.

7.6 Cu. Ft. Capacity Featuring the industry's largest available capacity 2 , these dryer models offer a 7.6 cu. ft. capacity drum that adapts to both large and small loads.

EcoBoost Option with Eco Monitor Saves energy by using a portion of the dryer's dual heating elements and extending cycle time. You'll get great drying performance while saving in energy costs 3 . You can even track the energy use of this eco-friendly option with the Eco Monitor. It allows you to see how the cycles and options you choose will affect your overall energy savings in both the washer and the dryer.

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.

Sanitize Cycle Provides excellent care for your clothes while eliminating 99.9% of three common household bacteria without washing. Bacteria tested were K. pneumonia, staphylococcus aureus and P. aureginosa.

Delicate Cycle Delicate fabrics and lingerie get gentle treatment with this cycle that dries them at the low temperature they need.

Casual Cycle This low-temperature cycle works great on permanent press garments and synthetic fabrics.

Heavy Dry Cycle This cycle sets the dryer to a high temperature level to thoroughly dry heavyweight items like towels and jeans.

Normal Cycle Dry everyday items like work clothes and sheets with the Normal cycle.

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.

Estimated Time Remaining LED Display Displays the estimated time remaining in the cycle, counting down until it is finished.

Timed Dry Allows you to run the dryer for a set period of time to help synchronize your washing and drying process.

Adjustable End-of-Cycle Signal Avoid leaving items in the dryer with the adjustable end-of-cycle signal. Thanks to a helpful tone, you'll know when your dry cycle is finished. You can even adjust the volume if you'd like, or completely turn it off.

Interior Drum Light Interior drum light allows you to see inside the dryer for easy loading and unloading.

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.

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.

I love my new RED Cabrio Plantinum Dryer

2/6/2016

I replaced my 5 year old Cabrio washer and dryer because my son needed a washer and dryer and I wanted to get a RED Cabrio. I love my new Cabrios as much as I did my older set.

Dries the first time!

SassyDino 3/1/2015

I am a mom of twins and 2 teenage girls. I wash and dry ALOT of laundry. I absolutely love love love this dryer. It has so many features that I have never used since the normal setting dries. I had a old dryer that always took 2 cycles. I love the color. Makes me cheery to see the red instead of boring old white!

Enjoying our new dryer

LBGarcia 12/9/2014

We've had our new dryer about 2 weeks now. This is our first electric dryer in some time, and I'm happy with the performance so far. There are loads of features on this dryer, but we haven't had a chance to try them all yet. I do love the capacity - we can fit our king-sized comforter inside, no problem. The only issue for me is the lint screen. When I pull it out to clean it, I see a lot of lint and hair left behind. We have 3 dogs, so lots of dog hair. I think I'm going to have to go to a bit of extra effort to keep the screen and dryer vent fee and clear of hair and lint.
