The Kenmore 68132 electric dryer is a highly innovative dryer with many advanced features that make drying your laundry extremely easy. It has a sleek, modern white and gray design along with intuitive drying technology that dries loads of any type or size effectively while still remaining energy efficient. This dryer is on the pricier side, but the price isn’t obnoxiously expensive by any means and for all of the advanced, innovative features that come with it, it’s definitely worth it.
This dryer can hold and successfully dry entire baskets of laundry, as well as bedding sets thanks to its huge 8.8 cu. ft. capacity. It uses SmartDry Ultra Technology and a Dual Heating Element to monitor the temperature of the air inside the dryer and adjust it along with the cycle time automatically to keep your clothes from over-drying which can preserve the life of your clothes and keep them from shrinking.
This dryer is extremely energy efficient and even received an Energy Star from the EPA. It is hard to believe that a dryer with such great capacities and abilities is also conservative of energy, but Kenmore has created on that is. It also comes with a 13 month warranty (most appliances only come with a year long warranty) that covers any defects in the materials of the dryer or defects due to the way it was installed.
This dryer comes equipped with touch controls and a Wrinkle Guard as well so that you can easily start a load of laundry and then go on about your day without the worry of having to take the laundry out right away to prevent wrinkling.
This dryer comes equipped with lots of great features that make it stand out from the rest. The Wrinkle Guard feature will keep the laundry on a heatless tumble for up to 150 minutes after it finishes the drying cycle, meaning that you can put your clothes in the dryer and then go run errands without having to rush home to get them out in time.
Its SmartDry Ultra Technology and Dual Heating features also monitor the moisture of the load of laundry, as well as the temperature of the dryer. It uses these two things to determine the amount of heat and amount of time necessary to dry that specific load of laundry. This means that you don’t have to guess on how long to put your clothes in for a timed dry. This dryer is smart enough to figure it out for you.
It comes with a variety of drying cycles as well, although not quite as many as some other dryers have. Rather than having cycles that are specific to the type of things you are watching such as active wear, towels, and delicates, this dryer has things like an anti-bacterial cycle that will sanitize your laundry and rid it of 99.9% of bacteria.
It also has a modern touch screen control system, so that you can choose your drying cycle options with the simple touch of a button.
