Product Description

Kenmore — trusted in the homes of more than 100 million Americans.

The Kenmore Elite 61622 7.3 cu. ft. steam electric dryer uses steam to remove odors from garments and reduce wrinkling, so you iron less. The extra-large dryer capacity dries more garments in each load, so you do fewer loads and handles bulky items, like comforters and rugs. The sanitize feature kills many kinds of germs and lets you sanitize pillows and stuffed toys without washing them.

The white Kenmore Elite 6162 dryer features the Kenmore Connect™ System, which sends data from the appliance directly to the Kenmore tech team over the phone. The team can handle some questions on the spot, without a service call.

  • 7.3 cu. ft. capacity lets you dry large, bulky items like small rugs and comforters
  • Steam Refresh™ reduces odors and relaxes wrinkles for less ironing
  • Sensor dry technology automatically detects the moisture content in clothes, then determines the right drying temperature and time to prevent over-drying
  • The NSF®-Certified Sanitize cycle eliminates 99.9% of certain bacteria, so you can sanitize items like pillows and teddy bears without washing them, as well as garments and bedding

BEST DRYER EVER
This is the most amazing dryer I've ever owned. It has so many heat settings, I can't imagine why these other reviewers say "Its HOT!" Then don't use extra hot. There's no heat, low heat, medium, hot, and extra hot. The steamer works SO much better than our old Maytag which just spritzed water. This produces CONTINUOUS steam, and lots of it. The control panel is easy to use, and has held up flawlessly. The tub material is the high-shine stainless which is more durable and easier on clothes. It also has multiple moisture sensors so it shuts of at the EXACT level of dryness you want. I have a feeling those other reviews are the competition (either whirlpool/maytag, etc), or the competition (BB, HD, or *****) because this is the most amazing dryer, and works flawlessly. Talk to any appliance sales guy... these are the best, and have the least issues.

Worst dryer ever!
We finally tossed it after the control board went out for the second time with a f40 code. Very poor service experience. After being a loyal Kenmore customer for over 30 years I will never buy a Kenmore product again!

Malfunction almost caught my house on fire

Hopefully, the headline has grabbed a potential buyers attention. We bought this dryer 2 years ago and seemed happy with its performance. However, 4 weeks ago we had to call the fire dept to respond due to hearing an electrical "sizzle" and eventually the dryer smoking. The scary part about this dryer is that we had not used it for about a day and a half...why would a dryer be SMOKING and HOT WHEN NOT IN USE for such a long time?!? According to previous reviews, this dryer has a problem with its control board. This was confirmed by the service tech that ruled out any other mechanical issues. But it gets better, after paying $1000 and 2 years of use, Sears is only offering us 10% off a new machine....$100. Good timing SAVED MY HOUSE from a smoldering dryer that was being supplied with energy from faulty control board supplying the heating element with energy despite being OFF. DONT. BUY. THIS . MACHINE!

Don't waste your money

I bought this set. The washer works well but the dryer is a major disappointment. It should not not be permitted to be called energy efficient because your going to need to run multiple dry cycles to dry clothes or dry everything on hottest setting-longest time. I expected a lot more for this kind of money/a top end type appliance.

Disappointment

Needed new dryer because 21 yr.old Kenmore finally gave up.Wanted simpler model,but newer dryers are larger so got this model because of space constraints. Gave 2 stars because it DOES dry clothes.Negatives:door opens to side,allowing dry clothes to fall out when opened;front control panel too sensitive..brush it and you turn off cycle,needing to start all over again;even following instructions, had fewer wrinkles with the old dryer;need to set my own cycles because too many of the automatic cycles are "hot". miss my old dryer!!
