Product Description

Kenmore Elite 9.0 cu. ft. Electric Dryer - Steam Dry

This Kenmore Elite electric dryer 8107 uses steam drying technology to freshen-up your laundry and reduce wrinkles. Dual sensors stop the drying cycle as soon as moisture levels are reduced, which protects your clothes from getting damaged by over-drying. The extra-care tumble cycle guards your clothes against wrinkles after the dry cycle is finished, and the drying rack comes in handy for drying delicate clothes or small items. Time-saving and convenient, this Kenmore Elite electric dryer is the perfect unit for your family.

  • SteamCare™ Technology reduces odors, relaxes wrinkles and cuts down on the need for ironing, so clothes are ready to wear in just 20 minutes.
  • 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.
  • NSF certified Sanitize Cycle raises temperatures to quickly kill 99.9% of certain bacteria without the use of chemicals so your laundry is clean and healthy.
  • Designed to channel air around tumble-free items like stuffed animals, shoes and hats, the Kenmore heated dryer rack delivers a thorough dry without tossing and turning.
  • From piles of clothes to big fluffy comforters, this dryer delivers plenty of space, so you can tumble, freshen and restore more in fewer loads.

Excellent Dryer
We purchased this unit to replace our 10 year old dryer. It's 16 months old and works great. Three kids under 2 lets makes certain it get at least one cycle everyday. We purchased the pedestals for both the washer and dryer and can't imagine not having them now. Great auto dry detect. Very good value.

Would have given 5 stars if the steam option worked.
Kenmore washer, dryer and pedestals ? Original purchase November 6, 2014 $2,927.32 ? Original delivery of washer, dryer and pedestals Nov. 7, 2014 ? Dryer dripping water from bottom front when using steam cycle. Steam cycle did work, dryer produced steam, dryer rotation stopped and started intermittently while steam was being produced, then dryer would run full time to dry clothes. Everything seemed to work but didn?t notice if nozzle was also squirting water after steam stopped but it did leak from bottom of dryer. o Replaced Dryer Nov. 17, 2014 ? Dryer not producing steam, water squirting out of steam nozzle but no steam. Called technician and Patrick came on Wednesday 12/3/14 at 1:00pm, diagnosed dryer and determined the steam generator was not functioning properly. Also this dryer did make steam first 3 times it was used but it did leak water. After this dryer rotation did not cycle and only squirted water, not steam. Patrick ordered the steam generator. He said he was scheduled to come back out on Monday, 12/8/14 o Technician John showed up on Saturday 12/6/14 even though it was supposed to be on 12/3/14 but I was home so that was cool. John replaced the steam generator but it still just squirted water and didn?t make steam. So again John called his tech as Patrick did the first time and they decided the nozzle and control board was bad. He ordered it but afterward I decided let?s try another dryer. So I called and cancelled technician visit to install these parts and ordered another replacement. ? The 3rd dryer came on 12/11/14. I went on vacation and returned on 12/31/14. I tried the steam function of this dryer today (January 1st, 2014) to only be disappointed again. This one as all the other dryers leak water from the bottom and does not make steam. Water squirts from the nozzle and water runs from drum and out the bottom of the dryer while leaving clothes soaked in the spots where it squirts. Bottom line, sears service and team except for the delivery team are great. The first two dryers also came dented along with the steam and leaking issue. The first delivery team which delivered the first 2 dryers tried to deceive me but the last delivery team was great. I love the washer, it works great (even the steamer) but the dryer a whole different story. I know it is a manufacture and engineering defect but they need to get it right. I am trying to give Sears a chance but ultimately it is made by LG for Sears and the techs are not admitting to a pattern. With three dryers and even a couple of techs coming out and cannot resolve the problem, I think that Sears needs to dig in and get a fix for this issue and then make a recall to replace whatever is needed to remedy this problem. I still give it 3 stars because everything else besides the steamer works on the dryer and I love the bigger capacity. If the steamer didn't have any issues I would give the bundle a 5 star rating hand down. I will be posting updates.

Control board has a high occurrence of failure just out of manufacturer warranty.

Great Accompanying Dryer for the 5.2 cu. ft. Front-Load Washer

We bought this with the 5.2 cu. ft. Front-Load Washer and we love them both. This is a great dryer with many extra features. I would not trade them for any other washer and dryer pair. This dryer even has a rack for shoes to allow them to dry without them tumbling in the dryer. Very quiet and very efficient. ******** ever!
