With the Steam Refresh™ option, the metallic silver Kenmore 8147 dryer adds steam to the dying cycle to relax wrinkles and reduce odors. The Static Shield™ uses steam to reduce static cling and the need for dryer sheets. This Kenmore electric dryer features a Workout Wear™ Cycle which uses cooler temperatures and a combination of wash motions to clean and care for performance fabrics.
- The extra-large 7.3 cubic-foot capacity of the Kenmore Elite 8147 electric dryer accommodates bulky items like comforters
- The durable stainless steel drum resists wear over time
- Dual-sensor system ™ uses advanced electronic sensors to protect fabrics by precisely monitoring the dryness of the load, adjusting the temperature and cycle time accordingly so garments are dry, but not over-dry.
- Steam Refresh ™ uses a steam generator inside the dryer to reduce wrinkles and odors
- Static Shield ™ uses steam to virtually eliminate static cling and the need for dryer sheets
- Workout Wear™ cycle dries exercise gear at a lower temperature to prevent fabric damage

I bought a Kenmore Elite Dryer a 5 years ago and paid an extra $200 for the warranty. Within the warranty period, the control panel broke. I was happy that the warranty was still valid, but Sears stopped manufacturing the control panel!! There is no reason for a dryer to have this many bells & whistles that can break and are obsolete within a few years. Do yourself a favor - buy the basic washers & dryers and leave the computers for your desk!
We recently bought this dryer in November of last year. Within one week the dryer started making a rattling noise, as if there was a screw in the drum. We called and the tech came out to inform us that the dryer motor was the root cause and needed to be replaced. So we requested a new dryer. The new dryer came and one week later began making the same noise and the tech again came out to diagnose a motor problem. We are now getting a new motor in our brand new dryer which we made a significant investment in. We paid a premium for the additional size due to the amount of laundry we have and we have a deconstructed and rebuilt dryer with a new motor. It's not what I expect from the quality and if I had the choice I would have spent my dollars on another product as this one appears to be defective. Same dryer, same noise. Product problem.

We got this over a month ago with the matching front load washer. I love this dryer! There are so many cycle choices, but my favorite is the steam refresh - it's a gift for busy moms who can't always be there when the dryer cycle is done (and ironing isn't even remotely an option). Definitely recommend this dryer. The matching pedestals add cost, but are completely worth it! My back has been thanking me every day.

Bought this dryer when I bought the matching washer. Dryer is quiet, and easy to use. First time with a steam feature. Wow is it great. I had washed 10 shirts and gone outside while they were drying. Came back hours later, and they were a bit too wrinkled for me to wear right out of the dryer. I set the Steam Refresh cycle.....and in 20 minutes I had ten shirts that I hung up on hangars, and they are ready to wear. Mostly I wear cotton shirts.....and it worked well with them. I'd surely recommend this dryer to anyone wishing to save time. It is Awesome.

I purchasd this dryer and it's matching washer. Many great drying options to choose from. Clohes come out looking great and the amount of ironing I do has cut down greatly. The static guard feature uses steam to keep static down I do not use dryer sheets anymore.
