  • Normal

    Life-tested for everyday items, like cotton, towels, jeans, sheets and mixed loads. All your clothing and fabrics get dry without hassle, using the right amount of movement, moisture and temperature levels.

  • Heavy Duty

    Tougher fabrics receive a more intense and extended tumble than normal or delicate loads. Moisture sensing and steam functions ensure even heavy-duty clothes get the proper care they need.

  • Towels

    Cotton and beach towels can come out warm and toasty with this specialized drying cycle that tumbles lightly with just the right amount of heat.

  • Bulky | Comforter

    Say goodbye to damp comforters. Larger laundry loads, including blankets, towels, sweaters and other bedding, are fully dried using a combination of high temperatures, moisture sensing features and more tumbling rotations.

  • Khaki | Jeans

    Khakis and jeans get the special care they need with a tumbling, steam and temperature combination that keeps pants looking fresh, without damaging their unique fabric.

  • Sanitize

    Customers can sanitize items right in the dryer without washing, using high temperatures and extra dry levels to eliminate 99.9% of certain bacteria. This NSF®-certified cycle is perfect for sanitizing non-washable items like decorative pillows and teddy bears.

  • Steam Refresh

    In just 20 minutes, Steam Refresh uses steam injection technology to reduce odors and relax wrinkles for less ironing. Clothes come out of the dryer fresh, dry and ready-to-wear.

  • Casual

    Life-tested for everyday items, like cotton, towels, jeans, sheets and mixed loads. All your clothing and fabrics get dry without hassle, using the right amount of movement, moisture and temperature levels.

  • Workout Wear

    Keep high-performance fabrics "performing" at their best, with the right amount of care. This cycle tumbles gently without heat to help protect the unique attributes of today's active wear.

  • Delicates

    Low temperatures and gentle tumbling keep delicate items like blouses, nylons and lacy garments fresh and dry while taking extra special care to protect fabrics from wear and tear.

  • Small Load

    Don't worry about wasted energy or over-drying smaller load sizes. This cycle is specially designed to use only as much energy as needed and a moisture sensing option to care for your fabrics.

  • Express Dry

    For smaller loads that you need dried quickly. A combination of higher temperatures and quick tumble rotations gets fabrics dried fast. This cycle can dry a small load in less than 30 minutes.* *Based on a 3lb AHAM load.

  • Touch Up

    This option quickly freshens garments without the need to rewash them, so you can have your favorite shirt ready to wear or your decorative throw fresh to set out in no time.

  • Air Dry

    Mimic the air-dry technique without the need for a clothesline. This drying cycle uses moderate temperatures and low tumbling to get fabrics dry without too much energy.
