Consumer Reports recommends that you match the features on a model to the needs you have. Here's our take on some of the specifications and features that are commonly available on electric dryer models like the Duet WED88HEAW.

Stainless-steel drum:
A stainless-steel drum is likely to resist damage better than plastic and painted metal drums.

Steam option:
Generally, a water hook-up is required with this feature. In this cycle, a small amount of water is sprayed into the drum while tumbling with heat. It helps to reduce wrinkles and odors, but is intended only for a few garments at a time.
