Enhance every home you build with stylish, innovative appliances that home buyers demand. Home buyers expect appliances that meet the needs of their everyday lives, are easy to use and reflect the style of their individual tastes. But, to provide appliances you will truly appreciate and will use for years to come, requires a higher level of commitment. Their commitment to quality, craftsmanship and style challenges them to design products that lead the industry in innovation and design.

This steam dryer can be placed above the matching washer to conserve every inch of floor space. Inside, the 7.2 Cu. Ft. drum provides plenty of room for your laundry. The AccelerCare Drying System senses how fast the load is drying and adjusts how hot the air should be and when clothes are dry. Twelve drying cycles provide you with lots of options when drying your clothes, including the Quick Refresh Steam Cycle that lets steam technology relax wrinkles and remove odors.

Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Homework Paid Off Twice When searching to replace my 18 year old Whirlpool pair, I looked at all brands and retailers. Whirlpool still offered me the best value, look and set of options of all I compared. The large capacity was critical for me -- I would easily be drying clothes for 3-4 hours (multiple small loads) from 2 loads of wash. So, getting the biggest size your budget will allow is important. The other great thing about Whirlpool is that it's one of the few brands that lets you upgrade one of the pair, and the look/size/etc. still matches. So, for not much more, I was able to get the Steam Dryer, realizing I was far more likely to need steam in the drying cycles, since the washer already has Sani-Cycle. I'm thrilled with the dryer, the pair, and what I paid. Having done all that homework, it was so easy to use AJ Madison's site. The availability is great, and the manuals are all online so we could read them ahead of time and see what we needed for installation (which saved us money in the longrun). 7/2/10
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Buy #2 Purchased with steam washer in Nov 2009.Very happy with washer and knew this would be icing on the cake.Best used for refreshing towels,enhanced touch-up for clothing.Leader in steam being introduced to dryer cycles.The sanitize feature which I neglected to mention on the washer rating my wife loves killing germs and bacteria is a must have. Reported to be 99.9% by the NSA.The lint filter is easy to clean and reach.Received a free dryer rack for shoes and sweaters from manufacturer mail-in offer.That was an unexpected bonus.We are very happy educated consumers. 11/3/10
Rated 5 out of 5 Great dryer I have really enjoyed this set, but am really glad I got the steam dryer. My only complaint is that sometimes my clothes come out very wrinkled - worse than they did with my old set. If I use the steam feature on them though, they come out great! Just not sure I should have to be using that so much though? I have only had the set for a month though, so hopefully I will get this figured out. I know it is not an overloading problem, as my loads are not all that big most of the time. 4/25/11
Rated 5 out of 5 Love it! My wife wanted wanted her picture taked with her new washer and dryer. She now looks for laundry to do. Buying this from AJ Madison was simple and saved us money. I've already recommended them. 6/16/11
