Lint Filter Indicator

Indicator light on the control panel that reminds you when it’s time to clean the filter. Helps maintain your dryer’s optimal performance and keep your clothes cleaner.

Most Efficient

Reversible Door

Enables you to switch the door so that it can open from either the left or right side. Provides installation flexibility and prevents the door from blocking the washer.

Some front-load matching dryers can be positioned on top of their companion washer with a low-cost washer-dryer stacking kit. Perfect for those with limited space.

Stainless Steel Drum

Stainless steel drums are more durable than dryers with plastic, porcelain-coated, or powdered-coated steel. Won’t chip or rust, and easily wiped clean.

Steam Option

Dryers with a steam option use hot, moist air to penetrate fabrics. Helps reduce static, wrinkles, and the need for ironing in clothing and towels.
