The 6th Sense Live Technology integrated into the Whirlpool Duet Diamond Steel Smart Electric Steam Dryer WEL98HEBU keeps you constantly connected to your appliances, helping save you time, stress and money.

By keeping you connected to your Whirlpool dryer, the 6th Sense Live system alerts you to potential service issues, letting you address them immediately and minimizing dryer downtime. One of the main benefits of this smart dryer is the Airflow Alert. If the dryer detects any vent obstructions, you'll receive an Airflow Alert via text, email or the Whirlpool 6th Sense App. Reduced airflow can increase drying times and energy use, as well as lead to excessive lint buildup within the dryer, and the active monitoring of the Whirlpool WEL98HEBU will help you avoid these problems.

Thanks to its internet connectivity, the Whirlpool WEL98HEBU gives you complete control from anywhere. With remote start and pause functions, you can load the dryer before work, and remotely start the cycle right before you head back home. The Clothes Dry Nudge notifies you when the cycle is complete. If you get delayed, simply activate Wrinkle Shield, and the dryer will periodically tumble your clothes to keep wrinkles from setting in. Another benefit of the intelligent 6th Sense system is the Energy Advisor, which monitors fluctuating energy rates and lets you schedule your drying cycles when they'll cost the least.

Beneath all of the smart enhancements, the WEL98HEBU is still one of Whirlpool's best dryers, packed with an array of innovative features from one of the leaders of laundry technology. Four baffles spread out larger items for better drying, while keeping smaller items from getting stuck. An interior light will help when unloading your clothes, preventing those mysterious sock disappearances. Advanced Moisture Sensing monitors moisture levels in the dryer to prevent overdrying, which can cause clothes shrinkage, while the Static Reduce option uses steam to prevent static buildup on finished loads. Ecoboost uses less heat and an extended cycle time to save energy. And if you decide to save even more energy by running your dryer at night, the SilentSteel dryer drum and Quiet Dry Ultra sound-dampening system will ensure your dryer doesn't disturb your rest.

*6th Sense Live Appliances requires internet access and a wireless router.
