Keep laundry day running smooth using this large capacity dryer with a flat back design that fits into tight spaces like closets or small utility rooms. This top load dryer has enough room to easily handle large loads while also helping to reduce damage caused by overdrying with the AutoDry Drying System. Clothes stay looking good even after the cycle stops with the Wrinkle Shield option, which intermittently tumbles for up to 90 minutes after the cycle ends to help keep wrinkles from setting into your clothes.

AutoDry Drying System

Help prevent overdrying with the AutoDry drying system that senses when clothes have reached the right moisture content and stops the cycle.

Wrinkle Shield Option

With a 5.9 cu. ft. capacity dryer drum, there's plenty of room to easily handle large loads and bulky items.

It fits! It works!

I had an old GE dryer that finally decided to go to "dryer heaven". I bought this dryer plus a new Whirlpool washer too. It is great! There are so many different drying options that were not available on my older Dryer. Furthermore, I am so grateful that there was a great Dryer available as a "Flat back" design. I have a small townhouse that cannot fit the newer full size dryers. Although this option costs more for this feature it is needed if you have a spacing issue in your laundry room.

Wish I had bought sooner

Love it---Had an old one that worked that I fixed a couple of times---but wish I had bought this sooner because it drys so fast! I just wish I had bought one that was a little more quiet like my new whirlpool washing machine!

It's a dryer!

Used dryer once. It is not a top load dryer (never seen one!!!). Would like to have a screen which tell me how much time is left for drying, but seems to do an adequate job.

Love it!

I am comparing this with an old dryer and it dries in a fraction of the time---I would have bought this some time ago if I new how much quicker it would dry!
