  The Frigidaire Affinity FASG7074NW is an extra-large gas dryer that should handle the laundry needs of a most households. It has 10 drying cycles, including Add Steam to release wrinkles and refresh clothes; no-wash sanitize for items that can't go through the washer; and a 25-minute Quick Dry cycle. A wrinkle-release option keeps the load tumbling intermittently without heat after the drying cycle ends and the end-of-cycle signal is a chime rather than a buzzer.

Models: FASG7074NW (Classic White), FASG7074NA (Classic Silver), FASG7074NR (Classic Red)
