Kenmore 7.0 cu. ft. Electric Dryer - Gentle Convenience
With an assortment of time and money-saving innovations, the Kenmore 7.0 cu. ft. electric dryer 8112 makes drying easier than ever. The Auto Dry cycle automatically adjusts the amount of time for each load, using only enough energy and heat to get the job done. The Sensor Dry technology uses moisture sensors to keep track of your clothes and allows the unit to adapt power usage to prevent overdrying. The Wrinkle Guard® option periodically tumbles dry clothes to keep wrinkles from setting in, and multiple drying cycles allow you to adapt to each individual load for optimal drying every time.
- Dual Sensor Technology uses a pair of advanced sensors that adjust temperatures to remove the moisture from your fabrics and ensure dry clothes and linens without overheating.
- Tumbling clothes periodically after the dry cycle is complete, Wrinkle Guard keeps fabrics fresh and smooth longer, so you can empty the dryer on your schedule.
- Medium range capacity gives this dryer the power of some bigger machines, allowing it to deliver features that fluff, finish and dry your fabrics to perfection.
- Thru back standard venting you can vent to the right, left, or you can vent down.

The unit failed after 1 year, has 4 sensors that cost more than buying a new unit. It was still under the 1 year guarantee but the process of getting it fixed was beyond frustrating. Every appointment was 2 weeks from the time we called. It wasn't fixed the first time, nor the second, the first appointment we got bumped and again had to wait another 2 weeks to get on the list. Do yourself a favor and assume Sears is not the same as it was 10 years ago and neither is Kenmore
I got this unit for a great deal along with its matching washer. It's simple but has moisture sensors that allow it to detect how dry the clothes are and not over-dry them. This saves energy, prevents damage, and still ensures that the load is dry when it stops. It's fairly quiet while doing it's job?about normal for a dryer. And no doubt in part because the companion washer spins so fast it leaves clothes barely damp, the dryer doesn't take nearly as long as the one it replaces. I've noticed less lint in the trap than my previous machine, indicating it and the washer are doing less damage to my clothes. And I've been thoroughly impressed with the fact that even large loads are not left bundled into a ball. My old dryer would wrap sheets up into a ball unless they were dried one sheet at a time. This dryer will handle a queen-size sheet set, two bath towels, and three throw blankets at the same time. All items get dry and nothing is balled together. The only two things I could ask for are (1) for it to dry a load in about the same time as the washer takes to wash a load?although it's actually pretty close, within 10 minutes?and (2) for a slightly more accurate estimate of how long the load will take to dry. The initial estimate is based on settings, but the actual drying time is based on moisture.

I do not overload my dryer but every load that comes out leaves several particles of clothing wet and other pieces damp. Dresses with straps or ties just rip off by getting caught and tangled on the lint tray! I had many dresses and blouses ruined by the lint tray edge protruding out. Lint tray also traps a lot of lint that I cannot reach into in order to remove. Lint trap fires are very serious and hope that I am not a future victim. Bottom line, don't buy this useless dryer unless you want wet ripped clothing.
I got this dryer and the washer combo on Black Friday for an amazing deal! I went with the Gas dryer over the electric due to it being much more efficient. Have been using this dryer for 3 months now and it does just as it is suppose to without any issue. Clothes come out completely dry and haven't had any shrink. Controls are as simple to use as a 1980's TV remote. I highly recommend this unit to anyone in the market that is looking for the best "bang for your buck"
This is a great dryer. It's fairly quiet, gets the clothes done very quickly, and appears to be extremely efficient. We have had no problems with it, and are very pleased with our purchase.
