IMPORTANT
SAFETY NOTICE
—
The California Safe Drinking
Water and Toxic Enforcement Act
requires the Governor of California
to publish a list of substances
known to the state to cause cancer,
birth defects or other reproductive
harm and requires businesses to
warn customers of potential
exposure to such substances.
Gas appliances can cause minor
exposure to four of these substances,
namely benzene, carbon monoxide,
formaldehyde and soot, caused
primarily by the incomplete
combustion of natural gas or LP
fuels. Properly adjusted dryers will
minimize incomplete combustion.
Exposure to these substances can
be minimized further by properly
venting the dryers to the outdoors.
WA~ING—To reduce the risk
of fire, electric shock, or injury
to persons when using your
app~ance, fo~ow basic precautions,
including the following:
. Use this appliance only for its
intended purpose as described in
this Use and Care Book.
● This dryer must be properly
installed and located in
accordance with the Installation
Instructions before it is used. If
you did not receive an Installation
Instructions sheet with your dryer,
you can obtain one by contacting
the service location nearest you.
—Properly ground to conform
with all governing codes and
ordinances. Follow details in
Installation Instructions.
—Locate where the temperature
is above 50°F. (lO°C.) for
satisfactory operation of the
dryer control system. Do not
install or store the dryer where it
will be exposed to the weather.
–Connect to a properly rated,
protected and sized power-supply
circuit to avoid electrical overload.
—Exhausting to the outside is
STRONGLY RECOMMENDED
to prevent large amounts of
moisture and lint from being blown
into the room. Carefully follow the
Exhausting Details in the Instigation
Instructions.
● When disconnecting this
appliance pull by the plug rather
than the cord to avoid damage to
the cord or junction of cord and
plug. Make sure that the cord is
located so that it will not be stepped
on, tripped over or otherwise
subjected to damage or stress.
● Do not repair or replace any
part of the appliance or attempt
any servicing unless specifically
recommended in this Use and
Care Book or in published userrepair instructions that you
understand and have the skills to
carry out.
To minimize the possibility
of a fire hward.
● Do not use heat to dry articles
containing rubber, plastic, or
similar materials (such as padded
bras, tennis shoes, galoshes, bath
mats, rugs, bibs, baby Pts, plastic
bags, etc.) as these materials may
melt or burn. Also, some rubber
materi~, when heated, can under
certain circumstances produce
fire by spontaneous combustion.
. Garments labeled “Dry Away
From Heat” (such as life jackets
containing Kapok) 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 use
or store such substances on/or
around your washer andlor dryer
during operation.
3
● 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 THE LINT
FILTER IN PLACE.
Q Keep area around and
underneath your appliance free
from the accumulation of
combustible materials, such as
lint, paper, rags, chemicals, etc.
● 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.
Q The interior of the machine
and the exhaust duct connection
inside the dryer should be
cleaned periodically by a
qualified individual.
● Exhaust duct (see installation
instructions). Use only metal
duct inside dryer or for
exhausting dryer to the outside.
Important Safety Imtructiom
To minimize the possibility
of injury.
c Never reach into the dryer while
the drum is moving. Before loading,
unloading or adding clothes, wait
until the drum has completely
stopped.
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
apptianc= and shipping or packing
materials properly. Before
discarding a dryer, or removing
from service, remove the door
of the drying 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.
● 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.
(continued)
● The laundry process can reduce
the flame retardancy of fabrics. To
avoid such a result, the garment
manufacturer’s care instructions
should be followed very carefully.
● Never climb on or stand on the
dryer top or door.
●
Do not tamper with controls.
● 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). N~E:
Turning the Cycle Selector knob
to an OFF position does N~
disconnect the appliance from
the power supply.
● Do not operate this appliance
if it is damaged, malfunctioning,
partially disassembled, or has
missing or broken parts, including
a damaged cord or plug.
If yours is a gas dryer, it is
equipped with an automatic electric
ignition and does not have a pilot
light. DO NOT ATTEM~ TO
LIGHT WITH A MA~H. Burns
may result from having your hand
in the vicinity of the burner when
the automatic ignition may turn on.
●

Dryer-applied fabric
softeners or anti-stitic
conditioners
You may wish to soften your
laundered fabrics or reduce the
static electricity in them. We
recommend you use either a
fabric softener in the wash cycle,
according to the manufacturer’s
instructions for those products, or
try a dryer-added product for
which the manufacturer gives
written assurance on the package
that their product can be safely
used in your dryer.
Service or performance problems
caused by the use of these products
are the responsibility of the
manufacturers of those products
and are not covered under the
warranty of this appliance.

POSSIBLE CAUSE AND REMEDY
DRYER WON’T
START
●
Dryer unplugged. Make sure power cord is plugged in.
s No power to dryer. Check fuses and circuit breakers to make sure dryer is getting
current. Most electric dryers use two.
● Controls improperly set. Make sure controls are set and START switch is pushed.
Opening the door during operation stops the dryer. Tore-start, close the door and push

CLOTHES TAKE
TOO LONG ~ DRY
● Controls improperly set. Check all controls to make sure they are correctly set for
the load you want to dry. See pages 5-7.
● Clogged lint filter. Remove and clean filter before every load. Periodically clean area
under lint filter with vacuum cleaner. See page 13.
. Improper ducting. Make sure dryer is ducted in accordance with Installation
Instructions.
● Obstruction in exhaust ducting. Make sure ducting is clean and free of obstruction;
make sure damper in outside wall cap operates easily. If flexible ducting is used, be
sure it is not kinked and is properly installed according to Installation Instructions.
. Blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers. Check household fuses or circuit breakers.
Most electric dryers use two. It is possible for one to be blown or tripped and the dryer
still tumble without heat.
. Improper sorting. Do not mix heavy, hard-to-dry items with lightweight articles.
● Large loads of moisture-holding fabrics, such as beach towels, take a long time to
remove moisture.
c Too many items in dryer. Dry only one washer load at a time. Do not combine loads.
c Too few items in dryer. If drying only one article, add two more similar articles, even
if dry, to insure proper tumbling.
SHRINKAGE,
GENERAL
c 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.
10
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSE AND REMEDY
SHRINKAGE,
KNITS
● Relaxation shrinkage can occur in knit fabrics that have been improperly stretched
and elongated by the manufacturer. When this occurs, garment maybe pressed back into
shape after each wash and dry cycle.
● Progressive or delayed shrinkage is caused when starch or sizing (in some fabrics) is
gradually removed by laundering. Maybe noticed in older garments that have been
laundered many times without previous shrinkage. Treat as for Relaxation S-e above.
Shrinkage caused by overheating occurs in certain knit fabrics that have been heatshaped. When washing, drying or ironing temperatures exceed the temperatures used to
shape set, shrinkage may occur. This cannot be corrected, but it can be prevented by
washing in cold or warm water.
●
WRINKLING IN
PERMANENT PRESS
AND “NO-IRON”
ITEMS
c Leaving clothes in dryer after tumbling stops. Remove clothes promptly and hang
them immediately.
Q 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 or more similar articles, even
if dry, to insure proper tumbling.
● 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.
● Too many clothes in washer. Items must have room to move freely. Permanent Press
loads should always be smaller than regular loads.. .no more than medium loads.
● Use of incorrect wash and dry cycles. Use Permanent Press Wash Cycle which provides
a cool-down rinse to minimize wrin~ing. Also, use Permanent Press Dry Cycle.
● Incorrect water level. Use large water level for medium load; medium ievel or half full
for small load.
●
Washing repeatedly in too hot water. Wash in cool or warm water with plenty of detergent.

ITEMS (continued)
●
Accumulation of lime scale due to use of carbonate detergents. If you must use a
non-phosphate detergent, avoid the use of a high-carbonate detergent.
c Failure to use fabric softener. Proper use of fabric softener will minimize wrin~ing.
To remove wrinkles:
●
Retumble on “Permanent Press” setting.
●
Rerinse and dry on “Permanent Press” setting.
. If unsuccessful, retumble on normal temperature for 10-12 minutes and hang
immediately.
●
Iron carefully.
. Send to dry cleaners for pressing.
Some wrinHes may remain which cannot be removed;
*NOTE: If you follow good laundry procedures and Permanent Press clothes still come
out wrin~ed, the finish may not be good quality. Also, in permanent press synthetic/
cotton blends, the cotton portion of the fabric can eventually wear away leaving only the
synthetic. Since it’s the cotton portion which is treated for Permanent Press, a loss or
decrease of Permanent Press performance will result.
