Mobile home - Additional installation requirements
This dryer is suitable for mobile home installations. The
installation must conform to the Manufactured Home
Construction and Safety Standard, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280
(formerly the Federal Standard for Mobile Home Construction
and Safety, Title 24, HUD Part 280) or Standard CAN/CSA-Z240
MH.
Mobile home installations require:
•
Metal exhaust system hardware, which is available for
purchase from your dealer.
Special provisions must be made in mobile homes to
introduce outside air into the dryer. The opening (such as a
nearby window) should be at least twice as large as the dryer
exhaust opening.
This dryer is manufactured ready to install with a 3-wire
electrical supply connection. The neutral ground wire is
permanently connected to the neutral conductor (white wire)
within the dryer. If the dryer is installed with a 4-wire electrical
supply connection, the neutral ground wire must be removed
from the external ground conductor screw (green screw), and
secured under the neutral terminal (center or white wire) of
the terminal block. When the neutral ground wire is secured
under the neutral terminal (center or white wire) of the
terminal block, the dryer cabinet is isolated from the neutral
conductor.
A 4-wire power supply connection must be used when the
appliance is installed in a location where grounding through
the neutral conductor is prohibited. Grounding through the
neutral is prohibited for (1) new branch-circuit installations,
(2) mobile homes, (3) recreational vehicles, and (4) areas
where local codes prohibit grounding through the neutral
conductors.

Then choose a 4-wire power supply cord with ring or spade
terminals and UL listed strain relief. The 4-wire power supply
cord, at least 4 ft (1.22 m) long, must have four 10-gauge copper
wires and match a 4-wire receptacle of NEMA Type 14-30R. The
ground wire (ground conductor) may be either green or bare. The
neutral conductor must be identified by a white cover.

(with ground wire), protected with flexible metallic conduit. All
current-carrying wires must be insulated.
[]
10-gauge solid copper wire (do not use aluminum).
[]
At least 5 ft (1.52 m) long.
GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS
[] For a grounded, cord-connected dryer:
This dryer must be grounded. In the event of malfunction or
breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock
by providing a path of least resistance for electric current.
This dryer uses a cord having an equipment-grounding
conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged
into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
[] For a permanently connected dryer:
This dryer must be connected to a grounded metal,
permanent wiring system, or an equipment-grounding
conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and
connected to the equipment-grounding
the dryer.

WARNING:
3-wire receptacle (10-30R)
Then choose a 3-wire power supply cord with ring or spade
terminals and UL listed strain relief. The 3-wire power supply
cord, at least 4 ft (1.22 m) long, must have three 10-gauge copper
wires and match a 3-wire receptacle of NEMA Type 10-30R.
Improper connection of the equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or service representative
or personnel if you are in doubt as to whether the dryer is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug on the power
supply cord: if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet
installed by a qualified electrician.

How Automatic Cycles Work
The AccelerCare TM function improves drying performance
with Auto Moisture Sensing Plus, which advances the cycle
as moisture is extracted from clothing. A thermistor
(electronic temperature sensor) and moisture sensing strips in
the dryer drum help measure the amount of moisture in the
clothes as they tumble. An electronic control determines the
load type to help save time, avoid overdrying, and increase
the accuracy of the end dryness level. After the first 5 minutes
of an automatic cycle, the estimated time display will adjust
based on the approximate load size, cycle, dryness level
selected and amount of moisture left in the clothes. When the
clothes have reached approximately 80% of the dryness level
selected, the estimated time display will adjust again,
showing the final drying time. The AccelerCare TM feature
takes the guesswork out of drying time and enhances fabric
care.

For the Casual Cycle, the WRINKLE SHIELD TM feature is
preset to "ON." The other cycles will retain the WRINKLE
SHIELD TM feature setting. (For example, if you select the
WRINKLE SHIELD TM feature in the Normal cycle, the
WRINKLE SHIELD TM feature will be on the next time you
select the Normal cycle.)
NOTE: If you do not select the WRINKLE SHIELD TM feature, the
dryer stops after the cool down period.
Damp Dry Cycle Signal
On some models, the Damp Dry Signal may be selected to alert
you that your clothes are approximately 80% dry. This is useful
when you want to remove lightweight items in a mixed load to
avoid overdrying or remove partially dry items that may need
ironing.
The DAMP DRY SIGNAL is usdul when drying bedsheets/linens
in a mixed load. When the signal goes off, open the door to stop
the dryer, rearrange the load inside the dryer, close the door and
restart the dryer to finish the drying cycle. Rearranging the load
will aid in the drying process.

The drying rack is useful for drying items you would not
necessarily want to tumble dry or that you would normally line dry
(for example, sweaters).
If your model does not have a drying rack, you may be able to
purchase one for your model. To find out whether your model
allows drying rack usage and for information on ordering, please
refer to the front page of the manual or contact the dealer from
whom you purchased your dryer.
To use the drying rack
Do not remove 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 before 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.
Press and hold START button (about 1 second).
NOTE: Check the lint screen and remove any lint accumulated
from items dried on the rack.
23
IMPORTANT:
•
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.
•
If lint falls off the screen into the dryer during removal, check
the exhaust hood and remove the lint. See "Venting
Requirements."
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.

dryer. Check that both fuses are intact and tight, or that both
circuit breakers have not tripped. Replace the fuse or reset
the circuit breaker. If the problem continues, call an
electrician.
Clothes are not drying satisfactorily, drying times are too
long, or load is too hot
•
is the lint screen clogged with lint?
Lint screen should be cleaned before each load.
Is the correct power supply available?

Was the Start button firmly pressed?
Large loads may require pressing and holding the Start
button for 2-5 seconds.
No heat
Has a household fuse blown, or has a circuit breaker
tripped?
The drum may be turning, but you may not have heat. Electric
dryers use 2 household fuses or circuit breakers. Replace the
fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the problem continues, call
an electrician.
Unusual sounds

can result in death
Is the exhaust vent or outside exhaust hood clogged with
lint, restricting air movement?
Run the dryer for 5-10 minutes. Hold your hand under the
outside exhaust hood to check air movement. If you do not
feel air movement, clean exhaust system of lint or replace
exhaust vent with heavy metal or flexible metal vent. See the
Installation Instructions.
Are fabric softener sheets blocking the grille?
Use only one fabric softener sheet, and use it only once.
Is the exhaust vent the correct length?
Check that the exhaust vent is not too long or has too many
turns. Long venting will increase drying times. See the
Installation Instructions.
Is the exhaust vent diameter the correct
Use 4" (10.2 cm) diameter vent material.
size?
Are the four legs installed, and is the dryer level front to
back and side to side?
The dryer may vibrate if not properly installed. See the
Installation Instructions.
Is the clothing knotted or balled up?

Add dryer fabric softener sheets at the beginning of the cycle.
Fabric softener sheets added to a partially dried load can
stain your garments.
Place dryer at least 18 inches (46 cm) above the floor
for a garage installation.
Drum stains are caused by dyes in clothing (usually blue
jeans). This will not transfer to other clothing.
Explosion
Hazard
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion,
or fire.
Is the dryer located in a room with temperature below
45°F (7°C)?
Proper operation of dryer cycles requires temperatures above
45°F (7°C).

Closet doors must have ventilation openings at the top and
bottom of the door. The front of the dryer requires a minimum
of 1" (2.5 cm) of airspace, and, for most installations, the rear
of the dryer requires 5" (12.7 cm). See the Installation
Instructions.
•
Has the Air Only temperature
setting been selected?
Select the right temperature for the types of garments being
dried. See "Additional Features."
•
Is the load too large and heavy to dry quickly?
Separate the load to tumble freely.
Cycle time too short
Excessive Weight
Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install dryer.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
•
Is the automatic cycle ending early?
The load may not be contacting the sensor strips. Level the
dryer.
Change the dryness level setting on Automatic Cycles.
Increasing or decreasing the dryness level will change the
amount of drying time in a cycle.
26
Have you recently been painting, staining or varnishing in
the area where your dryer is located?
If so, ventilate the area. When the odors or fumes are gone
from the area, rewash and dry the clothing.
•
Is the dryer being used for the first time?
The new electric heating element may have an odor. The odor
will be gone after the first cycle.
