02 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS, TIPS
•
Place only one washload in your dryer at a time.
Mixed loads of heavy and lightweight fabrics will dry differently, which may result in lightweight fabrics
being dry while heavy fabrics remain damp at the end of a drying cycle.
Add one or more similar items to your dryer when only one or two articles of clothing need drying.
This improves the tumbling action and drying efficiency.
Overloading restricts tumbling action, resulting in uneven drying as well as excessive wrinkling of some
fabrics.
Make sure to insert laundry that has been spun by an appropriate washing machine.
No unwashed textiles should be dried
Textiles which have been in contact with oil, alcohol, petrol etc. should not be dried.
When the cycle is complete and “End” will appear in the display.
Pressing Power cancels the cycle and stops your dryer.
The Drying, Cooling, and Wrinkle Prevent indicator lights will illuminate during those portions of the

CHECK THESE POINTS IF YOUR DRYER…
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
Doesn’t run.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Make sure the door is latched shut.
Be sure the power cord is plugged into a live electrical outlet.
Check the home’s circuit breaker and fuses.
Press the Start/Pause button again if the door is opened during the
cycle.
Empty the water in the condensed water tank.
Clean the filter case.
Doesn’t heat.
•
•
•
•
Check the home’s circuit breaker and fuses.
Select a heat setting other than Cool Air.
Check the case filter and condenser and clean them if necessary.
Dryer may have moved into the cool-down phase of the cycle.
Doesn’t dry.
•
•
•
•
Check all of the above, plus...
Do not overload. 1 wash load = 1 dryer load.
Sort heavy items from lightweight items.
Large, bulky items like blankets or comforters may require
repositioning to ensure even drying.
Check that the dryer is draining properly to extract adequate water
from the load.
Load may be too small to tumble properly. Add a few towels.
Clean the filter case.
Clean the Condenser.
Check if the cooling air vent is blocked.
•
•
•
•
•
Is noisy.
•
•
•
Dries unevenly.
•
•
Has an odour.
•
•
Shuts off before load is dry
•
•
Check the load for objects such as coins, loose buttons, nails, etc.
Remove promptly.
Be sure the dryer is leveled properly as outlined in the installation
instruction.
It is normal for the dryer to hum due to the high velocity of air moving
through the dryer drum and fan.
Seams, pockets, and other similarly heavy areas may not be
completely dry when the rest of the load has reached the selected
dryness level. This is normal. Select the Extra Dry setting if desired.
If one heavy item is dried with a lightweight load, such as one towel
with sheets, it is possible that the heavy item will not be completely
dry when the rest of the load has reached the selected dryness level.
Sort heavy items from lightweight items for best drying results.
Household odors from painting, varnishing, strong cleaners, etc.
may enter the dryer with the surrounding room air. This is normal as
the dryer draws the air from the room, heats it, pulls it through the
tumbler, and exhausts it outside.
When these odors linger in the air, ventilate the room completely
before using the dryer.
Dryer load is too small. Add more items or a few towels and restart
the cycle.
Dryer load is too large. Remove some items and restart the dryer.

05 TROUBLESHOOTING
•
Make sure the lint filter is cleaned before every load. With some loads
that produce high amounts of lint, it may be necessary to clean the
filter case during the cycle.
Some fabrics are lint producers (for example, a fuzzy white cotton
towel) and they should be dried separately from clothes that are lint
trappers (for example, a pair of black linen pants)
Divide larger loads into smaller loads for drying
Check pockets thoroughly before drying and drying clothes.
