Now you can confidently steam away wrinkles and spend less time ironing.

Moisture Sensor

Sensor Dry combines the latest Samsung innovations to provide a drying cycle that optimizes the time and temperature to dry clothes thoroughly. Moisture sensors detect when laundry has reached the optimal degree of dryness. They help protect your laundry from heat damage by automatically shutting off the dryer when your clothes are dry.

Image Feature

Vent Sensor

Vent Sensor detects problems and reminds you when you need to clean your vent to avoid lint blockages.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Dryer Review

AbbeyG 1/13/2017

Very frustrated with this product. I did not realized that the dryer was dented until 30 days after its purchase. the dryer is curved it was hard to see the dent around the top right front corner. I also realized the top left rear corner of the Dryer was not aligned and dented. Of course since the 30days has past Home depot will not exchange it.

DOES IT ALL WELL

MartiniManicMayhem 12/28/2016

Easy to use controls. Easy to hook up. Large drum but compact size. The steam feature is an added bonus!!! Still has an Energy Efficient rating. The ability to change the door opening too left or right is so so helpful!! Only negatives: door latch is cheap plastic ball but holds the door & plastic door overlay easily scratches but can be buffed out with "plastic/acrylic cleaner"

Great features

CVgirl1 6/24/2016

I am very satisfied with my new dryer. I love all of the features. I'm just trying to figure out why my towels come out a little damp even on the towel setting. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.

dryer is ok but....

jerrypaul946 4/18/2016

i was used to a door that swung down, but now with the left or right open, dry clothes can fall on the floor and require rewashing. also the selections are confusing. i have to fiddle around to figure out what to do just get the clothes dry.

GREAT DRYER

KCWILLY 4/14/2016

WE PURCHASED THIS UNIT TO GO ALONG WITH OUR NEW WASHER. OVERALL I AM VERY PLEASED WITH EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS DRYER. I DIDN'T DO A LOT OF RESEARCH ON THE DRYER ITSELF, I HAD FOCUSED MORE ON THE WASHER. THE DRYER WORKS EXTREMELY WELL, HAS GREAT FEATURES AND IS REALLY QUIET DURING OPERATION.

Nice music

Mike1247 3/21/2016

Had this dryer about a month. Works great and is quiet. Haven't tried all the features yet, but so far I am very happy. Plays a nice little tune when the clothes are done.
