  The LG DLEX2650W is a large-capacity electric dryer that should handle most drying needs in an average household. It includes steam options to sanitize or to quickly refresh clothes by reducing wrinkles and odors without putting the items through the washer. Other features include an anti-bacterial setting to eliminate many allergens; a sensor system to turn off the machine when the clothes are dry; and a rack to dry sneakers, sweaters, pillows, stuffed animals or other items without tumbling them.
