Seize the Laundry Day Spend less quality time on laundry and more quality time with your TV with the white Kenmore Elite 7.4 cu. ft. electric dryer. This dryer features Wrinkle Guard, Steam Refresh and Sensor Dry to give clothes some extra love and attention. Whether you’re prepping for work tomorrow or getting the family’s loads done in one afternoon, your laundry will feel the love, and so will you.

Bring on the Bulky Stuff

This white Kenmore Elite 7.4 cu. ft. electric dryer features a generous capacity to help you take on almost any size load, from mountains of towels and bulky bedding to heaping hampers of work and school clothes.

The Right Amount of Dry

This electric dryer uses Sensor Dry with dual sensor technology to monitor moisture content and adjust drying temperatures and time. No more tossing clothes back in for another tumble or risking over-drying delicate fabrics.

Wrinkle-Free Laundry

Wrinkle Guard lets you do laundry on your terms by giving a load a quick toss to prevent set-in wrinkles for up to 150 minutes after the dry cycle so you can run errands or take a nap without needing to iron out the laundry. Toss favorite outfits, a blouse or even a sweater in the dryer and use the Steam Refresh option to reduce wrinkles and freshen up clothes for work or an evening out.

No More Germs

The Sanitize Cycle removes up to 99.9% of germs using a high heat cycle, perfect for kids' clothes, soiled bedding and other dirty fabrics.

Best Dryer Ever

I love this dryer. I have been using for a year and no issues. Huge capacity, ability to change the temp to reduce overall drying time, easy to use controls.

Sent it back

Beware the lint detector. Dryer would not stay on because it detected lint that wasn't there. Thank goodness Sears gave us three days to try out. Shipped it back and bought a no frills dryer.

Kenmore Elite or Kenmore Average?


Sadly disappointed with product and service to resolve. Lint filter will not stay seated during operation and have had four service calls to resolve. Techs are fine but they keep doing the same work and call it "better". This is an "Elite" labeled product. Better is not expected...right is. Would have positive review based on all other factors. Drying times are down and love the features. But, it's a gamble if there are issues and the online service support will read the same script over and over about replacement policies.

Great dryer, not the greatest steamer

3 defective units


I purchased both the washer and dryer from Sears and I am on my 3rd, yes I’ll say it again. 3rd replacement dryer. It will not dry clothes, and gives an error code. The 3rd replacement has issues as well, the drum light will not turn off. After many hours of calls to Kenmore I asked to simply return the washer and dryer, and of course the request was denied. I would HIGHLY recommend NOT purchasing this dryer or washer.

Poor quality


Both this unit with the matching dryer. The water drawer for the steam function is not squared with the rest of the unit. Looking closer at it, I realized the plastic holding the slide is cracked. When a new slide unit replacement was used the steam function stopped working. Several trips from Sears repairmen and the thing is still not working as it should. For a brand new unit, this is disappointing. Our previous Kenmore Elite set never faltered. I think quality for the brand has gone downhill fast.

Excellent dryer


If you're considering a front load washer or dryer, I strongly recommend Kennmore! Great product, tons of features and super quiet. We are quite happy with the set.
