However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 307-532-4108 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability.

Intuitive Touch Controls Let the dryer guide you to the right cycle combinations or customize up to 26 of your own to get the right type of fabric care for whatever you're drying.

Intuitive Touch Controls with Memory Intuitive Touch Controls with Memory always ask the right questions. Easy "what" and "how" controls effortlessly help you create customized care for any mess depending on load type, size and drying times. Plus, they even remember your last settings to save you time when drying those everyday favorites.

Advanced Moisture Sensing Advanced Moisture Sensing uses three active built-in sensors to read incoming and outgoing air temperatures while continuously monitoring heat and moisture levels inside the dryer. This helps the cycle automatically end when clothes are perfectly dry and helps prevents damage caused by overdrying.

Steam Refresh Cycle Clothes are ready to wear thanks to the Steam Refresh cycle. It releases wrinkles and reduces odors without rewashing. Using water and a little heat, items that don't need to be rewashed are ready to wear in no time.

Wrinkle Shield Plus Option with Steam The Wrinkle Shield Plus option with Steam helps keep wrinkles from setting into your clean clothes with intermittent tumbling after the dryer cycle ends. Now you can enjoy the added benefit of steam for even better wrinkle-fighting performance.

Quad Baffles Four baffles tumble clothes in a randomized pattern, allowing items to open up more freely. This helps increase the effectiveness of the dryer for small loads and promote better, more balanced tumbling.

Estimated Time Remaining LED Display Always have an eye on how much time is left during any cycle with our estimated time remaining LED display. Part of our updated digital console, it illuminates your selected cycles, options and available choices, and lets you know when you can remove items from the dryer.

8.8 cu. ft. Capacity The 8.8 cu. ft. capacity dryer offers enough space to care for loads from the washer with ease. You'll even be able to dry bulky items like comforters and sleeping bags.

EcoBoost Option The EcoBoost option saves energy by using less heat and extending cycle time. You'll enjoy great drying performance while using less energy.

Static Reduce Option Help decrease static with the Static Reduce option, which combines a spray of mist with tumbling after the load is dry.

Sanitize Cycle The Sanitize cycle provides excellent care for your clothes in the dryer while eliminating 99.9% of common household bacteria.

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.
