Size means a lot

The Kenmore Elite 81072 dryer is big, but it handles big loads of wet clothes quickly.

Sleek lines despite its girth

Though it's a big machine, the Kenmore Elite is smoothly sculpted in sleek lines and curves.

Controls that don't confuse

Taking a page from LG's playbook, the control panel on this dryer is intuitive and easy to operate.

See the screen from all over

Unlike other dryers that are saddled with screens that are hard to read, the Kenmore Elite 81072's LED display is legible from many angles and at a distance.

A cramped water tank

One letdown with this Kenmore dryer is that it uses a small water tank to supply moisture for steam functions.
