The exclusive TOTAL CARE SYSTEM combines the KING SIZE™
load capacity, EVENHEAT with Auto Temp Control (ATC),
WRINKLE GUARD™ III, and the TUMBLE FREE™ heated dryer
rack to ensure total drying care for any type of fabric and load

Auto Temp Control

In automatic drying cycles, the temperature of the clothes is
reduced by automatically turning down the heat, as the clothes
become dry. This reduces over drying and provides better care of
the fabrics in your clothes.
EVENHEAT™ with Auto Temp
Drying System
The EVENHEAT with Auto Temp Control system for drying uses
dual moisture sensing devices and SENSOR SMART™ controls.
EVENHEAT with Auto Temp Control shortens drying time and
dries the load at lower temperatures for optimal fabric care. The
EVENHEAT with Auto Temp Control system monitors the
temperature of the heated air to ensure that it is never too hot to
cause fabric damage. It also terminates the cycle when the
clothes are dry to reduce shrinkage.

"SMART" Cool Down Period

When the selected level of dryness is reached, the dryer goes
into a cool down period lasting 2-10 minutes. Unlike other dryers
that provide a fixed 10 minute cool down, the length of the
"SMART" cool down is based on the cycle time and selected
dryness setting.
For small loads or loads that are dried at a lower temperature,
the cool down may be as low as 2 minutes.
For large loads or loads that are dried at a higher
temperature, the cool down will be closer to 10 minutes.

Jeans Cycle

Auto Temperature Control monitors the temperature and moisture
of your clothes and turns down the temperature at the right time.
By sensing the temperature and moisture, jeans come out of the
dryer ready to wear. You can put them on without them being
damp or overdry.
