Tap Touch controls allow direct access to cycles and options like the EcoBoost and Wrinkle Shield Plus with Steam options, and their sleek appearance enhances the appeal of any space.

Duet 7.4 cu. ft. Gas Dryer with Steam in Chrome Shadow-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loud loud loud!!! The dryer worked well but it is very loud!! I have had it for less than one year and it seems to be getting louder. I will have to call the repair company to see if this is normal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Simple Dries amazingly. Sensor does a good job detecting moisture level. Good air flow is critical. I had to have the vent moved and enlarged to get a straight airflow. Paired with the duet washer, the drier is done in half the time of the next wash load. Controls are simple and it just works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love It! I have been wanting a new washer and dryer for a few years now so when my dryer stopped working I was so excited because now I could get a new one. I researched many and priced them and decided on this one because of reviews and price. It wasn't the cheapest or the most expensive. I love how it dries so quickly so much faster than my old one. I ordered the set online and didn't see them in person so I was shocked at how big they are. I have a relatively small laundry room they take up a good portion of it. I wasn't sure at first if I was going to like the size but I have had them for about a month and I have gotten used to their size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice hi-tech design, easy to use I am still getting used to the new dryer but am really missing a feature on my old dryer called Sensor dry. This new dryer is supposed to have three sensors yet when the cycle ends the clothes are still slightly damp so they sit in the bottom of the dryer and get wrinkled. Maybe I am operating it wrong? There doesn't seem to be an adjustment to the pre-sets to add minutes or make the dryer warmer to avoid this. You can use the time dry and then the time and controls are adjustable of course but then you end up running the dryer longer than you might need, thus wasting energy and overdrying is not good for your clothes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my dryer! I was uncertain of the purchase, as it was needed simply because our previous dryer didn't fit with new home. We weren't purchasing washer, wasn't sure about non matching, etc. But, oh so glad we did! Love the setting options an it's so quiet. The steam option is fabulous! Still learning some of the control settings, but so far great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Mashine This dryer is part of set I bought that replaced 10 year old duet set. It is easy to use, has plenty or features and does a great job drying the clothes of family of 4. I have this machine stacked on top of the washer. It is on the second floor and even with both machines on you can barely hear them when they are one. There is practically no vibration even with the largest loads. I am very impressed with the advancements that went into theses machines since the first duets the we had for the past 10 years. We are very happy with our new machines and hope they will last as long as the two others did

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing! This is the best product I've ever purchased for our home! The steam setting is my favorite and I use it every day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product -- would definitely buy it again We bought this for a new house because our old Duet washer and drier stayed with the old house. We loved our old ones, and we like the new ones even more. The washer capacity is very large. You can put just about anything in it, and it will actually get clean. For example, we have washed sleeping bags, which you generally can't do in a top-loader. This model has a faster spin, yet is much quieter than our older model. I like the detergent dispenser. You fill it up once every 10-12 loads and it automatically dispenses the appropriate amount of detergent.
