Features
Delay Start
Consumers can program the dryer’s start-up time for up to 24 hours after setting the program. It allows
to dry when more economical electricity rates are in effect, or the appropriate time in which is most
convenient for consumers to take out their clothes.
Freshen-up Program
Our Freshen-up program tumble-dries the garment in cool air set at a time of your choice, up to 50
minutes. This program makes it easy to freshen-up clothes that only require a little airing.
Sensor Dry & Fuzzy Logic Control
Both technologies bring you outstanding economic benefits as well as excellent drying performance.
Fuzzy Logic Control determines how dry and gentle your laundry requires, ensuring careful treatment
of your laundry. The sensor measures the temperature automatically and continuously in the most
appropriate inner section of the dryer.
Various Drying Cycles & Fuzzy Logic Algorithm
Simply turn the Jog Dial to select one of the 11 automatic drying cycles, including normal, heavy duty
and towels. Or let Fuzzy Logic Control measure the degree of dampness and automatically set the
drying time. Precision drying never got easier than with Samsung.
Wrinkle-free Program
Our Wrinkle-free program tumble dries garments in warm air for 10 minutes. Simple & easy to smooth
wrinkle of garments that have been stored away.
Easy Iron
Less ironing is needed as Samsung’s Carefreewash safely cleans your soft, delicate cloths and easy-care
fabrics. Developed by Samsung’s globally recognized digital process technology, the Easy Iron function
is a specialized laundry program that will help to reduce wrinkles on your delicate garments, freeing up
the time you would have spent on ironing.
Stacking
For convenience of location, all dryers are designed to stack on the top of the washing machine with the
Stacking Kit as well as to place next to the washing machine.

To Minimize the Possibility of a Fire Hazard
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Exhaust Duct - See Installation Instructions. Use only rigid metal or flexible metal 4” diameter
ductwork for exhausting to the outside. USE OF PLASTOC OR OTHER COMBUSTIBLE DUCTWORK
CAN CAUSE A FIRE. FOIL OR OTHER EASILY PUNCTURED DUCTWORK CAN CAUSE A FIRE IF IT
COLLAPSES OR BECOMES OTHERWISE RESTRICTED IN USE OR DURING INSTALLATION.
Do not use heat to dry articles containing rubber, plastic, or similar materials (such as padded
bras, tennis shoes, galoshes, bath mats, rugs, bibs, pillows, baby pants, plastic bags, etc.) as
these materials may melt or burn. Also, some rubber materials, when heated, can under certain
circumstances produce fire by spontaneous combustion.
Do not store items that may burn or melt (such as clothing, paper material, plastics or plastic
containers, etc.) on top of the dryer during operation.
Garments labeled “Dry Away from Heat” must not be put in your dryer.
Do not wash or dry articles that have been cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with
combustible or explosive substances (such as wax, paint, gasoline degreasers, dry-cleaning
solvents, kerosene, etc.) which may ignite or explode. Do not add these substances to the wash
water. Do not use these substances around your washer and/or dryer during operation.
Any article on which you have used a cleaning solvent, or which contains flammable materials
(such as cleaning cloths, mops, towels used in beauty salons, restaurants or barber shops, etc.)
must not be placed in or near the dryer until all traces of these flammable liquids or solids and
their fumes have been removed. There are many highly flammable items used in homes such as:
acetone, denatured alcohol, gasoline, kerosene, some household cleaners, some spot removers,
turpentines, waxes, wax removers and products containing petroleum distillates.
Clean the lint filter before each load to prevent lint accumulation inside the dryer or in the room.
DO NOT OPERATE THE DRYER WITHOUT LINT FILTER IN PLACE.
Keep the area around the exhaust opening, and around and underneath your appliances free from
the accumulation of combustible materials, such as lint, paper, rags, chemicals, etc.
Regularly inspect the exhaust duct to be sure it has not been crushed or otherwise restricted.
The interior of the dryer cabinet and the exhaust duct connection inside the dryer should be
cleaned every 2 to 3 years, or more often if needed, by a qualified service person.
Safety Instructions
To Minimize the Possibility of Injury
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
• Never reach into the dryer while the drum is moving. Before loading, unloaing or adding
clothes, wait until the drum has completely stopped.
• Do not dry fiberglass articles in your dryer. Skin irritation could result from the remaining glass
particles that may be picked up by clothing during subsequent dryer uses.
The laundry process can reduce the flame retardance of fabrics. To avoid such a result, the garment
manufacturer’s care instructions should be followed very carefully.
Close supervision is necessary if this appliance is used by or near children. Do not allow children to
play inside, on, or with this appliance or any discarded appliance. Dispose of discarded appliances
and shipping or packing materials properly. Before discarding a dryer, or removing from service,
remove the door of the dryer compartment.
Keep all laundry aids (such as detergents, bleaches, fabric softeners, etc.) out of the reach of
children, preferably in a locked cabinet. Observe all warnings on container labels to avoid personal
injury.
Keep the floor around your appliances clean and dry to reduce the possibility of slipping.
To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug this appliance from the power supply before
attempting any maintenance or cleaning (except the removal and cleaning of the lint filter).
Do not tamper with the controls.
Do not operate this appliance if it is damaged, malfunctioning, partially disassembled, or has
missing or broken parts, including a damaged cord or plug.

Installation Instructions
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS EXHAUST
Installation and service must be performed by a qualified installer or service agency.
IMPORTANT: Have your dryer installed properly.
NOTE: The WARNING and IMPORTANT instructions appearing in this manual are not meant to
cover all possible conditions and situations that may occur. It must be understood that
common sense, caution, and carefulness are factors that CANNOT be built into the dryer.
These factors MUST BE supplied by the person(s) installing, maintaining, or operating
the dryer.
Failure to install, maintain, and/or operate this machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions
may result in conditions which can produce bodily injury and/or property damage.
This dryer comes ready for top exhausting.
WARNINGS
• DO NOT USE NON METALLIC FLEXIBLE DUCT.
• Never use flexible duct inside the dryer.
• Do not terminate exhaust in a chimney, range hood, gas vent, floor or attic.
The combination of lint and grease could create a fire hazard or damage.
• Provide an access for inspection and cleaning the exhaust system at least once a year.
EXHAUST LENGTH
The MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE length of the exhaust system depends upon the type of duct,
number of turns, the type of exhaust hood (wall cap), and all conditions noted below. The
maximum allowable length for both rigid and flexible metal duct is shown in table 1(next
page). More than four 90˚ turns is not recommended.
EXHAUST SYSTEM CHECK LIST HOOD or WALL CAP
• Terminate in a manner to prevent back drafts or entry of birds or other wildlife.
• Termination should present minimal resistance to the exhaust air flow and should require little
or no maintenance to prevent clogging.
• Wall caps must be installed at least 300 mm (12”) above ground level or any other obstruction
with the opening pointed down.
• If roof vents or louvered plenums are used, they must be equivalent to a 100 mm (4”)
dampered wall cap, in regard to resistance to air flow, prevention of back drafts and
maintenance required to prevent clogging.
SEPARATION OF TURNS
Separate all turns by at least 1m(3ft.) of straight duct, including distance between last turn
and dampered wall cap. If two turns must be closer than 1 m (3 ft.) deduct 3 m (10 ft.) from the
maximum lengths shown in the table for each occurrence.
TURNS OTHER THAN 90˚
• One turn of 45˚ or less may be ignored.
• Two 45˚ turns should be treated as one 90˚.
• Each turn over 45˚ should be treated as one 90˚.
SEALING OF JOINTS
•
•
•
All joints should be tight to avoid leaks. The male end of each section of duct must point away
from the dryer.
Do not assemble the duct work with fasteners that extend into the duct. They will serve as a
collection point for lint.
Duct joints can be made air and moisture-tight by wrapping the overlapped joints with duct
tape.
INSULATION
•
Duct work which runs through an unheated area or is near an air conditioning duct, should be
insulated to reduce condensation and lint build up and be sloped down toward outdoors.
NOTE: Never install screen inside exhaust duct.
WARNING: THE DRYER MUST EXHAUST TO THE OUTDOORS.
TO PREVENT LARGE AMOUNTS OF LINT AND MOISTURE FROM ACCUMULATING AND TO
MAINTAIN DRYING EFFICIENCY, THIS MACHINE MUST BE EXHAUSTED OUTDOORS.

POLYESTER KNITS & PERMANENT PRESS DRYING TIPS
•
•
•
DO NOT OVERLOAD - Garments being dried or dewrinkled should tumble freely.
REMOVE CLOTHES PROMPTLY- To help prevent wrinkling, remove clothes from the dryer promptly at
the end of the drying cycles.
PLACE ON HANGERS- Permanent press and polyester knit garments look best if placed on hangers
after drying.
LOADING CLOTHES
•
•
•
•
•
•
Don’t overload your dryer. Crowded loads don’t dry efficiently and clothes may be unnecessarily
wrinkled.
As a general rule, sort clothes by surface texture, fabric, colour and weight, as you would for your washer.
Do not add fabric softener sheets once the load has become warm.
Do not overload. This wastes energy and caused wrinkling.
Do not dry the following items: fiberglass items, woolens, rubber- coated items, plastics, items with
plastic trim and foam-filled items.
Clothing with metallic components may damage the drum interior during drying.
Caution
•
•
The display indicates remaining time by automatically calculating the quantity of clothing and the
content of water. During the first phase of the drying cycle, the display will indicate the total estimated
time of the dry.
During the drying cycle, you will again be able to verify the degree of dryness of the clothing and then
increase or decrease the remaining time according to the desired results. (Max. DRY time is 3 hours)

Drying Times
It is impossible to give exact drying times. Conditions from home to home vary and directly affect drying
times. The length of time it takes to dry loads will depend on several things.
• Load Size
• Type of fabric, washer, and spin speed will determine moisture in the fabric.
• Heat and moisture in the room. Damp air coming into the dryer will increase drying time.
• Installation (Length of exhaust duct, etc)
• Electric voltage.
If you select an automatic cycle, the machine will determine the time needed for drying.
During the DRYcycle, the remaining time may be increased or decreased in order to optimize dryness.

Most electric dryers use two. It is possible for one to be blown or tripped and the
dryer still tumbles without heat.
• Improper sorting. Do not mix heavy, hard-to-dry items with lightweight article.
• Large loads of moisture-holding fabrics, such as beach towels, take a long time to
remove moisturue.
• Too many items in dryer. Dry only one washer load at a time. Do not combine
loads.
• Too few items in dryer. If drying only one article, add two more similar articles, even
if dry, to ensure proper tumbling.
SHRINKAGE,
GENERA
• Some fabrics will shrink whether machine washed and tumble dried or washed by
hand and drip dried; others may be safely washed but will shrink in a dryer. Follow
Garment Manufacturers’Care Labels exactly. If in doubt, do not machine wash or
tumble dry.
WRINKLING
• Leaving clothes in dryer after tumbling stops. Remove clothes promptly and hang
them immediately.
• Improper loads. Avoid laundering heavy Permanent Press items, such as work
clothes, with lighter Permanent Press items, such as shirts or blouses. Do not wash
or dry Permanent Press with regular laundry.
• Failure to use fabric softener. Proper use of fabric softener will minimize wrinkling.
TO REMOVE
WRINKLES
Try one or more of these suggestions
• If unsuccessful, retumble on high heat for 10-12 minutes and hang immediately
• Iron carefully
• Send to dry cleaners for pressing
• Some wrinkles may remain which cannot be removed.*
IF DRYER STILL DOES NOT OPERATE, call for Service. GIVE THE MODEL AND
SERIAL NUMBERS AND DESCRIBE THE SYMPTOMS OF THE DRYER.
