The RLM monitors status of your washer and/or dryer. You can plug the display unit into any power
outlet in your home. The RLM Display Unit can be purchased separately for this dryer.
Your dryer provides sensor drying and time drying programs.
Sensor Dry : Dryer senses electronically laundry humidity and it automatically determines operation time
based on the dryness of the load and the selected program. At times, you can see sudden increase or
decrease on operation time. It happens because a sensor will detect laundry humidity with a certain period.
Sudden change on operation time is not a malfunction.
Time Dry : Time Dry is that you can set operation time manually to complete drying. Or use Time Dry to have
drying performance if clothes are still damp after sensor dry cycle is finished. Time Dry is more effective for
heavyweight and bulky items such as king-size bed sheets and thick work clothes.

GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance 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 IBr electric current. This appliance is
equipped with 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.
WARNING - Improper connection of the equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a risk of electric
shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service
person if you are in doubt as to whether the appliance is
properly grounded.
Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance: if
it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by
a qualified electrician.
This appliance 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
on the appliance.

This 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
combustion. Exposure to these substances can be
minimized further by properly venting the dryer
to the outdoors.

prior to disconnection
when servicing the dryer,

Laundry detergent and fabric softener residue can
build up on the lint screen, causing longer drying
times. The screen is likely blocked if lint falls off
the screen. In order to prevent this type of build
up, and help ensure proper operation of your
dryer, clean the lint screen with a nylon brush
every six months or, if necessary, more
frequently.
The lint filter can also be washed as
follows:
a) After rolling the lint off of the screen with your
fingers, wet both sides of the screen with hot or
warm water.
b) Wet a nylon brush with hot water and liquid
detergent and scrub the lint screen with the brush
to remove the buildup of detergent and t:abric
softener.
c) Repeat as necessary.
d) After the residue has been removed, rinse screen
with hot water.
e) After drying the lint screen with a clean towel,
firmly replace the lint screen in your dryer.
