the washer and dryer to a more
comfortable working height.
The large drawer provides
convenient storage.
Stack Kit
If space is at a premium,
the stack kit allows the dryer
to be installed on top of
the washer.
4
Worksurface
The worksurface bridges
the washer and dryer, and
provides a convenient working
and storage area.
CHECK YOUR VENT SYSTEM FOR GOOD AIR FLOW
Maintain good air flow by:
n Cleaning your lint screen before each load.
n Replace plastic or foil vent material
with 4" (102 mm) diameter heavy, rigid
vent material.
n Use the shortest length of vent possible.
n Use no more than four 90° elbows in a vent system;
each bend and curve reduces air flow.
Good
Better
Good air flow
Along with heat, dryers require good air flow to efficiently
dry laundry. Proper venting will reduce your drying times and
improve your energy savings. See Installation Instructions.
The venting system attached to the dryer plays a big role
in good air flow.
Service calls caused by improper venting are not covered by
the warranty and will be paid by the customer, regardless of
who installed the dryer.
n Remove lint and debris from the exhaust hood.
n Remove lint from the entire length of the vent system
at least every 2 years. When cleaning is complete, be
sure to follow the Installation Instructions supplied with
your dryer for final product check.
n Clear away items from the front of the dryer.
Use Sensor cycles for better fabric care and energy savings
Use the Sensor Cycles to provide the most energy savings and enhanced fabric care from the dryer. During Sensor Cycles, drying air
temperature and moisture level are sensed in the load. This sensing occurs throughout the drying cycle and the dryer shuts off when the
load reaches the selected dryness. Use the NORMAL dryness level to provide optimal energy savings.
With Timed Dry, the dryer runs the amount of time set and sometimes results in shrinkage, wrinkling, and static due to over-drying.
Use Timed Dry for the occasional damp load that needs a little more drying time or when using the drying rack.
Tips for getting the best performance from your steam dryer
n Results may vary depending on fabric. 100% cotton
garments with wrinkle-free finish may yield better results than
those without. 100% cotton items may require additional
touching up after cycles that use steam.
n Use of fabric softener sheet is not recommended with cycles
that use steam. It may cause temporary staining on clothes.
n Cycles that use steam are not recommended for items that
have been starched. Wash any starched or new garments prior
to using cycles that use steam.
n The Refresh Cycle is best for reducing light wrinkles from loads
left in the dryer too long.
n The Custom Refresh Cycle (on some models) is best for
smoothing out wrinkles and reducing odors from loads
consisting of one to 9 dry items of wrinkle-free cotton,
cotton-polyester blend, common knits, and synthetic
garments.

DRYER CARE
CLEANING THE DRYER LOCATION
Keep dryer area clear and free from items that would block the
air flow for proper dryer operation. This includes clearing piles
of laundry in front of the dryer.
CLEANING THE LINT SCREEN
Every load cleaning
The lint screen is located in the door opening of the dryer.
The control panel has an indicator light to remind you to clean
the lint screen after each load. A screen blocked by lint can
increase drying time.
To clean:
1. Pull the lint screen straight up. Roll lint off the screen with
your fingers. Do not rinse or wash screen to remove lint.
Wet lint is hard to remove.
2.Push the lint screen firmly back into place.
CLEANING THE DRYER INTERIOR
To clean dryer drum
1. Use a mild hand dish detergent mixed at a low
concentration with very warm water, and rub with
a soft cloth.
2. Rinse well with a wet sponge or towel.
3. Tumble a load of clean clothes or towels to dry drum
OR
Use a microfiber cloth and hot water in a spray bottle
to clean the drum and a second microfiber towel to dry.
NOTE: Garments that contain unstable dyes, such as denim
blue jeans or brightly colored cotton items, may discolor the
rear of the dryer interior. These stains are not harmful to your
dryer and will not stain future loads of clothes. Dry unstable
dye items inside out to avoid transfer of dye.
REMOVING ACCUMULATED LINT
IMPORTANT:
n Do not run the dryer with the lint screen loose, damaged,
blocked, or missing. Doing so can cause overheating and
damage to both the dryer and fabrics.
n If lint falls off the screen into the dryer during removal,
check the exhaust hood and remove the lint. See “Venting
Requirements” in the Installation Instructions.
As needed cleaning
Laundry detergent and fabric softener residue can build up
on the lint screen. This buildup can cause longer drying times
for your clothes, or cause the dryer to stop before your load is
completely dry. The screen is probably clogged if lint falls off
while the screen is in the dryer.
Clean the lint screen with a nylon brush every 6 months,
or more frequently, if it becomes clogged due to a residue
buildup.
To wash:
1. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers.
2. Wet both sides of lint screen with hot water.
3. Wet a nylon brush with hot water and liquid detergent.
Scrub lint screen with the brush to remove residue buildup.
From Inside the Dryer Cabinet
Lint should be removed every 2 years, or more often,
depending on dryer usage. Cleaning should be done by a
qualified appliance servicer or ventilation system cleaner.
From the Exhaust Vent
Lint should be removed every 2 years, or more often,
depending on dryer usage.
4. Rinse screen with hot water.
5. Thoroughly dry lint screen with a clean towel.
Reinstall screen in dryer.
13
NON-USE, STORAGE, AND MOVING CARE

Possible Causes
Solution
Dryer Results (cont.)
Clothes are not drying satisfactorily or drying times
are too long (cont.)
The load is too large and heavy
to dry quickly.
Separate the load to tumble freely.
Fabric softener sheets are blocking
the grille.
The air outlet grille is just inside the door, behind the lint screen.
Check that it is not blocked by a fabric softener sheet.
Use only one fabric softener sheet, and use it only once.
The dryer is located in a room with
temperature below 45ºF (7ºC).
Proper operation of dryer cycles requires temperatures above
45ºF (7ºC).
The dryer is located in a closet.
Closet doors must have ventilation openings at the top
and bottom of the door. The front of the dryer requires a minimum
of 1" (25 mm) of airspace, and, for most installations, the rear of
the dryer requires 5" (127 mm). See the Installation Instructions.
The load may not be contacting
the sensor strips on Sensor Cycles.
Level the dryer. See the Installation Instructions. All four dryer feet
should be in firm contact with the floor.
Clothes are coming out of the
Refresh cycle with damp or wet
spots.
Under certain environmental or installation conditions, you may
experience underdrying. Select the Timed Dry cycle, medium
drying temperature, for 5 to 10 minutes.
The Sensor Cycle is ending early.
Change the dryness level setting on Sensor Cycles. Increasing
or decreasing the dryness level will change the amount of drying
time in a cycle. If loads are consistently ending too early, see also
“Changing the Sensor Cycle settings to increase drying time.”
Lint on load
Lint screen is clogged with lint.
Clean lint screen before each load.
Stains on load
Improper use of fabric softener.
Add dryer fabric softener sheets at the beginning of the cycle.
Fabric softener sheets added to a partially dried load can
stain your garments. Do not use fabric softener sheets with
steam cycles.
Stains on drum
Loose dyes in clothes.
Drum stains are caused by dyes in clothing (usually blue jeans).
These will not transfer to other clothing.
Loads are wrinkled
The load was not removed from dryer
at the end of the cycle.
Select Custom Refresh Cycle to tumble the load with water and
heat. This cycle is best for smoothing out wrinkles and reducing
odors from dry loads consisting of one to 9 dry items of wrinklefree cotton, cotton-polyester blend, common knits, and synthetic
garments.
NOTE: Refer to garment care label instructions. Dry-clean-only
garments are not recommended.
The dryer was tightly packed.
Dry smaller loads that can tumble freely. When using the Custom
Refresh cycle (on some models), adjust the garment number
based on the load size. Results may also vary depending on fabric
type. This cycle is best for reducing wrinkles and odors from loads
consisting of wrinkle-free cotton, cotton-polyester blends, common
knits, and synthetics.
For steam cycles, the water is not
properly connected with the dryer.
Make sure water is connected to the dryer. Check that water
inlet hose is connected to both the faucet and dryer’s water inlet
valve. Check that the water supply is turned on.
Cycle time is too short
