Bosch WTG86401UC LG DLE3170W
5 Reasons For
Moisture Sensor
The Bosch WTG86401UC has a moisture sensor, however the LG DLE3170W does not have this feature.

A moisture sensor detects the level of moisture in the clothes placed into the drum. This is then used to ascertain how long is needed to fully dry the clothes.

A moisture sensor allows for automatic drying, whether the machine ascertains exactly how long the clothes need to perfectly dry. This means time and money aren't wasted with unnecessary drying.
