To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons when using this dryer, comply with the basic warnings listed
below. Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don’t follow these Important Safety Instructions:
PREVENT FIRE
• Do not dry items that have been previously cleaned in,
soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, cleaning solvents,
kerosene, waxes, etc. Do not store these items on or near
the dryer. These substances give off vapors that could ignite
or explode.
• Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in your dryer.
Items contaminated with cooking oils may contribute to a
chemical reaction that could cause a load to catch fire.
• Do not dry articles containing rubber, plastic or similar materials such as bras, galoshes, bath mats, rugs, bibs, baby pants,
plastic bags and pillows that may melt or burn. Some rubber
materials, when heated, can under certain circumstances
produce fire by spontaneous combustion.
• Do not use heat to dry items containing feathers or down,
foam rubber, plastics similarly textured, rubber-like materials.
• Clean the lint screen before or after each load. The interior
of the dryer, and lint screen housing should be cleaned approximately every 18 months by qualified service personnel.
An excessive amount of lint build-up in these areas could
result in inefficient drying and possible fire. See Care and
Cleaning.
• Do not operate the dryer if the lint screen is blocked, damaged or missing. Fire hazard, overheating and damage to
fabrics can occur.
• Do not obstruct the flow of ventilating air. Do not stack or
place laundry or throw rugs against the front or back of the
dryer.
• Do not spray any type of aerosol into, on or near dryer at
any time.
• Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static
unless recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric
softener or product.
• Do not continue to use the dryer is you hear squeaking,
grinding, rubbing or other unusual noises. This could be a
sign of mechanical breakdown and lead to fire or serious
injury. Contact a qualified technician immediately.

6 Operating Instructions
Normal Operating Sounds
You may or may not hear the following sounds from your new
dryer:
A. SUSPENSION ROLLERS The dryer drum is supported
by a set of suspension rollers. At times there may be a
thumping or rolling sound when the dryer starts. This may
happen if the dryer has not been in use for a period of
time, or after a heavy load has remained in the dryer drum
for an extended period, creating a temporary flat spot on
the edge of the roller. The noise should dissipate as the
dryer operates and the flat spots smooth out.
B. AIR FLOW SYSTEM Your dryer is equipped with a high
volume air handling system. In some installations there
may be some sounds associated with air movement
throughout the dryer. This is normal and can vary with load
size and type.
A
CAUTION
Do not continue to use the dryer if you hear squeaking,
grinding, rubbing or other unusual noises. This could be a
sign of mechanical breakdown and lead to fire or serious
injury. Contact a qualified technician immediately.
B
IMPORTANT
If installed in a closet the dryer will not function correctly with the door in the closed position. This condensation process requires
access to cool air from the room. The unit must only be operated with the door in the open position to allow correct air circulation.

2
To provide the best care for your laundry, not every setting or
option is available with every cycle. If a setting or option is not
available for the cycle selected, the indicator will not light.
5
Check that the lint filter is clean and in place and
water container is empty. See also Care and Cleaning
section.
CAUTION
Do not operate dryer without lint filter in place.
3
Load the dryer and close the door.
• Load items loosely. The average wet load will fill the
drum 1/3 to 1/2 full. Items need room to tumble freely for
even drying and less wrinkling.
• Fabric softener sheets are not recommended with this
condensing dryer.
• To save energy and time and avoid uneven drying and
wrinkling, do not overload the dryer.
• When drying large items, dry only two or three items
at a time. Fill out the load with small and medium sized
items.
• For delicate or very small loads, add two or three similar
items to improve tumbling action.
Start the dryer.
• Close the door and press Start. The dryer will not operate with the door open. “Check the door” will be displayed
as a reminder to close the door.
• Select delay start to delay the beginning of the cycle,
if desired.
• To add a forgotten item to the dryer drum, press Pause
and open the door. “PAUSE” will be displayed alternately
with the estimated remaining cycle time. Opening the door
with a cycle running will also pause the cycle. Add the
item, close the door and press Start to resume the cycle.
• If changes to the settings or options are attempted after
the cycle starts, you will hear several beeps when the
buttons are pressed. To change the settings or options,
press Pause, make the new selections and press Start
again.
• To change the cycle once the cycle has begun, press
the Power button to cancel the current cycle, press the
Power button to turn on unit again, select a new cycle,
and press Start again. Just pressing another cycle icon
will not change the cycle.
• To stop the cycle, press the Power button.
• A signal will sound at the end of the cycle if the chime
option has been selected.
NOTE
If drying a single large or bulky item remove the item part
way through the cycle and turn it “inside out” to maximize
drying effectiveness. Place item back in dryer and re-start
cycle.
6
When the cycle ends, remove items immediately and
hang or fold.
IMPORTANT
Clean the lint filter and empty the water container after every
load.

For best results
Follow the fabric care label
instructions on items to
be dried.
Auto Dry Cycles
Auto Dry cycles take the guesswork out of selecting the
correct drying time for each load. Moisture sensing bars in the
front of the dryer drum sense the moisture level of the load
as it tumbles through the heated air. With Auto Dry cycles, the
load will automatically be dried at the selected temperature
to the desired dryness level. Auto Dry cycles save time and
energy and protect fabrics.
When the load has reached the selected dryness level, it
will continue to tumble during a cool down period. This helps
reduce wrinkling and makes items easier to handle during
unloading.
Drying time varies depending on size and dampness of load
and fabric type. If the load is too small or almost dry, the
moisture sensing bars may not detect enough moisture to
continue the cycle and the cycle may end after a few minutes.
If this occurs, select a Timed Dry cycle.
Room temperature, and electrical voltage can also affect
drying time.
