Safety information
• Do not place items in your dryer that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable oil
or cooking oil. Even after being washed, these items may contain significant amounts
of these oils.
• Residual oil on clothing can ignite spontaneoulsy. The potential for spontaneous
combustion increases when items containing vegetable oil or cooking oil are exposed
to heat. Heat sources such as your dryer can warm these items, allowing an oxidation
reaction in the oil to occur. Oxidation creates heat. If this heat cannot escape, the items
can become hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking, or storing these kinds of items
may prevent heat from escaping and can create a fire hazard.
• All washed and unwashed fabrics that contain vegetable oil or cooking oil can be
dangerous.
Washing these items in hot water with extra detergent will reduce, but not eliminate,
the hazard. Always use the Cool Down cycle for these items to reduce their
temperature. Never remove these items from the dryer hot or interrupt the drying
cycle until the items have run through the Cool Down cycle. Never pile or stack these
items when they are hot.

STEP 6 Power on (Gas models)
Make sure all gas connections, the exhaust line, and all wiring is connected correctly. Then,
plug the power cord into a power source and check the dryer’s installation and operation
using the final checklist in Step 7 below.
STEP 7 Final check
When installation is complete, confirm that:
The dryer is plugged into an electrical outlet and grounded properly.
The exhaust ductwork is connected and the joints are taped.
You have used rigid or stiff-walled flexible metal duct material, not plastic flexible duct.
The dryer is level and is sitting firmly on the floor.
The dryer starts, runs, heats, and shuts off properly.
Installation
•
•
•
•
•
For gas models:
• The gas is supplied properly with no leaks.
CAUTION
The burner may not ignite initially due to air in the gas line. Allowing your dryer to
operate on a heat setting will purge the line. If the gas does not ignite within 5 minutes,
turn your dryer off and wait 5 minutes. Be sure the gas supply to your dryer has been
turned on. To confirm gas ignition, check the exhaust for heat.
Vent blockage test
After the dryer is installed, start the Vent Blockage Test to check if the duct system is
properly installed. The Vent Blockage Test automatically detects the status of the ducts
and reports any blockage or problems. Proper ducting can reduce drying time and save
energy.
NOTE
The Vent Blockage Test must run with the dryer in a cool state. If the dryer warms up
after the installation check, run the AIR FLUFF cycle for several minutes to reduce its
internal temperature.

3. Press the START/PAUSE button. The Vent Blockage Test starts immediately. During the
test, the number indicator makes a circle in 6 clockwise steps. The test takes about 2
minutes. Do not open the door during the test.
4. After 2 minutes, when the test is complete, the results is displayed and the dryer
sounds a tone.
If status of the duct system is normal, “End or 0” appears and the dryer sounds a
completion tone.
If the duct system can not exhaust properly, “CLg or Cg” appears and the dryer sounds
an alarm tone.
If there are any other problems, an information code appears in the display. For
information about the code, see “Information codes” section on page 43.
• To stop or cancel the Vent Blockage Test, press the POWER button to turn off your
dryer.
• During the test, if “dc” appears in the display, make sure the door is closed. If “C1” is
displayed, see if there is laundry inside drum. If there is, stop the test and remove it.
Then, start the test again.
• The results remain on the display for about 5 minutes and then automatically turn
off. You can turn the result off immediately by pressing the POWER button.
NOTE
• During or after the test, the internal drum is hot. Use caution to prevent burns.
The Vent Blockage Test is used to check for problems to the current duct system when
the dryer is installed for the first time.
• If the test result displays “CLg or Cg” (the duct system is blocked ), refer to the “Ducting
requirements” section on page 11 and the “Exhaust ducting guide” section below, and
then take proper measures to correct any problems.
If the test is suspended, it could result in incorrect results. Follow the proper
procedures when testing the dryer.
• Even if the test result is normal (“End or 0”), the duct system could be blocked slightly.
Properly install all duct work according to the installation instructions in this manual.

apply them directly to the dryer. Wipe
up any spills or overspray immediately.
• Clean with a soft, damp cloth. Do not
use abrasive substances.
• Protect the surface from sharp objects.
• Do not place any heavy or sharp
objects or a detergent container on the
dryer. They can scratch or damage the
top cover of the dryer.
• The dryer has a high-gloss finish on the
entire surface. Be careful not to scratch
or damage the surface.
Tumbler
• Check and clean the exhaust system on
a yearly or regular basis to maintain
optimum performance.
• The external exhaust hood must be
cleaned more frequently to ensure a
proper air flow.
• Remove any stains from the tumbler
with an all-purpose cleaner.
• Tumble old towels or rags to remove
any remaining stains or cleaning
substances. Stains may be still visible,
but will not affect subsequent loads.

Troubleshooting
Checkpoints
If the dryer operates abnormally, first check the list of problems in the table below and
try the suggested actions.
Action
Does not run.
• Make sure the door is latched shut.
• Make sure the power cord is plugged into a live electrical
outlet.
• Check your home’s circuit breakers or fuses.
• Press or tap START/PAUSE again if the door is opened during
a cycle.
• Clean the lint filter.
Does not heat.
• Check your home’s circuit breakers or fuses.
• Some cycles do not require heating. Check the selected cycle
again.
• For a gas dryer, make sure the gas supply is on.
• Clean the lint filter and exhaust duct.
• The dryer may have moved into the cool-down phase of the
cycle.
Does not dry.
• Check all of the above, plus...
• Make sure the exhaust hood outside your home can open and
close freely.
• Check the exhaust system for lint buildup. Ducting should be
inspected and cleaned annually.
• Use a 4” rigid metal exhaust duct.
• Do not overload. 1 wash load = 1 dryer load.
• Dry heavy items and light weight items separately.
• Large, bulky items, such as blankets or comforters, may
require repositioning to ensure even drying.
• Make sure that your washer is draining properly and
extracting adequate water from the load.
• The load may be too small to tumble properly. Add a few
towels and restart the dryer.
• The load may be too large to tumble properly. Remove some
items and restart the dryer.
• Clean the lint filter.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Action
• Check the load for objects such as coins, loose buttons, nails,
etc. Remove promptly.
Is noisy.
• It is normal to hear the dryer gas valve or heating element
cycle on and off during the drying cycle.
• Make sure the dryer is leveled properly as outlined in the
installation instructions.
• It is normal for the dryer to hum due to the high velocity of
air moving through the dryer drum, fan, or exhaust system.
Has odors.
• Household odors from paint, varnish, 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, completely ventilate the
room before using the dryer.
• Use a cycle featuring the Refresh function. If odors persist,
wash and dry the item again.
Lint on clothes.
• Make sure the lint filter is cleaned before every load. For
clothes that naturally build up lint, clean the filter during the
cycle.
• Some fabrics are lint producers (for example, a fuzzy white
cotton towel) and they must 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, then dry clothes.
• Remove lint inside the drum before drying.
Troubleshooting
Dries unevenly.
• 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. You can choose
a higher dryness level or a cycle that involves a higher
dryness level.
• If one heavy item is dried with a light weight 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.
• For the best drying results, dry heavy items and light weight
items separately.
