  The Samsung DV331AEW is an ultra-large capacity electric dryer that should handle the drying needs for most households. Sensors detect moisture and automatically turn off the machine when the items are dry, to save energy and avoid over-drying. Two steam settings will either freshen clothing while removing odors or relax wrinkles to cut the need to iron, and the sanitizing cycle is advertised by Samsung as eliminating 99.9% of household laundry germs.
