Features

Help prevent damage caused by overdrying and spend less time in the laundry room with the Whirlpool® 8.8 cu. ft. high-efficiency gas steam dryer. This large capacity dryer features Advanced Moisture Sensing that senses the needs of each load and adapts drying times, so every load stops when clothes are perfectly dry. Four shorter, quad baffles bring more balanced tumbling results, even on small loads. And, it's a steam dryer with cycles that help reduce wrinkles and odors so clothes are refreshed without rewashing with the Steam Refresh cycle.

Front loader vs top loader HE

Had around a month so far and like it. Had to explain to my wife the difference between front and top load HE. She was thinking that it would fill up to the top like the old top load we had. As our biggest complaint was not enough water with front loader. I told her this does use more water then front load, which makes the detergent more concentrated with the water. Been two weeks later and she got the point. Made in USA
