The serial # label, located on the rear of the dryer (on the right
side), shows necessary warranty information.
Serial #
label
NOTE: There is another label
on the inside of the door, but it
doesn’t show the serial #.
• Model # - “WTA3500UC/13”.
•
Serial # - “FD 8104”. To find when the product type
was built, add 20 to the 1st two digits to get the year
(81 + 20 = 101 Æ product type was built in 2001).
The last two digits show the month (04 = April).
702_58300000141665_ara_en_a
Factory serial # - Can convert
factory serial # to FD # for
warranty use. 1st 2 digits show
factory # (47 = Nauen), 3rd digit
shows year (1 = 2001), 4th & 5th
digits show month built (04 =
April). So, serial # starting with
“47104…0008397” = dryer built @
Nauen with FD 8104 30108.

WTA 3500/3510 UC/13 Service Tips -Timed Dry Ÿ
WTA 3500/3510 UC/13 vented dryers have Timed Dry cycles which use
less energy than WTA 3500 UC/04 - UC/10 dryers (to meet Canadian
energy requirements). These dryers can take longer to dry laundry during
Timed Dry. This doesn’t affect WTL 54 condensation dryers -- they do not
have a reduced heat output during Timed Dry cycles.
The Timed Dry cycles are intended for drying delicates
and hand washables.
When drying cotton and
permanent press fabrics, Auto-cycles (i.e. sensor
controlled drying) should be used. Using Auto-cycles,
WTA 3500/3510 UC/13 vented dryers heat to full
capacity and sense when clothes are dry, drying clothes
quickly and safely.
NOTE:
WTA 3500 UC/04,
UC/08 & UC/10 dryers used
control module # 265677, which
provided full heating during
Timed Dry.
702_58300000141665_ara_en_a
NOTE: WTA 3500 & WTA 3510
UC/13 dryers use control module #
481590, which provides reduced
heating during Timed Dry to meet
Canadian energy requirements.

WTA 35 Service Tips
‘‘
-- Whistling Dryers
WTA 3500/3510 vented dryers can
occasionally whistle if one or more of
the vent covers has worked loose or
wasn’t installed securely.
To eliminate whistling from WTA 35 vented
dryers, reattach vent covers to dryers with
silicone caulk. Use a non-adhesive type
which will allow vent covers to be moved at a
later date.
HINT: Use silicone caulk to fasten
vent covers whenever installing or
repairing WTA 35 vented dryers.

WTA/WTL Service Tips -- Test Program (1)
WTA 35 & WTL 54 dryers have test programs enabling them to selfdiagnose problems, including listing the last fault code.
To enter/exit test program for WTA 35 & WTL 54 dryers:
♦ Rotate Auto-cycle and Timed cycle knobs to Off position.
♦ Push and hold Start and Delicate buttons at the same time, then turn dryer on by pushing On/Off button. After pushing
On/Off button, keep holding Start and Delicate buttons until Start light flashes rapidly. Dryer is now in the test program.
♦ Lights will flash for drying faults -- fault shown will be the last fault code on the dryer (see fault chart on next page).
♦ When test program has been entered:
♦ Start light flashes rapidly.
♦ Select individual parts to test by rotating Auto-cycle knob as shown on next page.
♦ Don’t rotate Auto-cycle knob or push any button while individual tests are being run (so tests won’t stop).
♦ Once part to test has been selected, start test by pushing Start button. Start light will stay on continually while tests
are running. Push Start button again to end any test. Tests have finished once Start light flashes rapidly again.
♦ To exit test program, push Start button (while Start light flashes rapidly).
NOTE: Fault displayed
will be 1st fault that
occurred since last time
dryer was turned on.

HINTS:
• Tests can be run with door closed. Opening door during testing stops the test.
• To run 2nd test with sensors and drum connected, remove top panel and connect jumper
to copper braids (for two "brushes" touching outside of drum).
• Drum must be empty during these tests – damp clothes in drum will give wrong results.
• Lights won't flash during this test.
To exit test program (from
any test), turn unit off by
