California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act
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.
Troubleshooting Tips
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 dryer to the outdoors.
PROPER INSTALLATION
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, you can
receive one by visiting GEAppliances.com or by calling 800.GE.CARES (800.432.2737).

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
WARNING!
YOUR LAUNDRY AREA
„ Keep the area underneath and around your
appliances free of combustible materials,
(lint, paper, rags, etc.), gasoline, chemicals and
other flammable vapors and liquids.
„ Keep all laundry aids (such as detergents,
bleaches, etc.) out of the reach of children,
preferably in a locked cabinet. Observe all
warnings on container labels to avoid injury.
„ Keep the floor around your appliances clean
and dry to reduce the possibility of slipping.
„ Never climb on or stand on the dryer top.
„ Keep the area around the exhaust opening
and adjacent surrounding areas free from the
accumulation of lint, dust and dirt.
„ Do not obstruct the flow of ventilating air. Do not
stack or place laundry or throw rugs against the
front or back of the dryer.
WHEN USING YOUR DRYER
„ The laundry process can reduce the flame
retardancy of fabrics. To avoid such a result,
carefully follow the garment manufacturer’s
care instructions.
„ 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.
„ Do not dry articles containing rubber, plastic
or similar materials such as padded bras, tennis
shoes, galoshes, bath mats, rugs, bibs, baby pants,
plastic bags, pillows, etc. that may melt or burn.
Some rubber materials, when heated, can under
certain circumstances produce fire by spontaneous
combustion.
„ 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, oil, paint, gasoline, degreasers, dry-cleaning
solvents, kerosene, etc.). These substances give
off vapors that may ignite or explode. Do not add
these substances to the wash water. Do not use
or place these substances around your washer
or dryer during operation.
„ Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in
your dryer. Items contaminated with cooking oils
may contribute to a chemical reaction that could
cause a clothes load to catch fire.
„ Garments labeled “Dry Away from Heat” or “Do Not
Tumble Dry” (such as life jackets containing Kapok)
must not be put in your dryer.
„ Do not dry fiberglass articles in your dryer.
Skin irritation could result from the remaining
particles that may be picked up by clothing
during subsequent dryer uses.
„ To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug
this appliance from the power supply or disconnect
the dryer at the household distribution panel by
removing the fuse or switching off the circuit
breaker before attempting any maintenance or
cleaning (except the removal and cleaning of the
lint filter). NOTE: Turning the Cycle Selector knob
to an off position or pressing PAUSE does NOT
disconnect the appliance from the power supply.

Consumer Support
„ Any article on which you have used a cleaning
solvent or that 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
solvents or flammable materials 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.
„ Do not store plastic, paper or clothing that may
burn or melt on top of the dryer during operation.
Troubleshooting Tips
„ Never reach into the dryer while the drum is
moving. Before loading, unloading or adding
clothes, wait until the drum has completely
stopped.

Sorting and Loading Hints
As a general rule, if clothes are sorted properly for the
washer, they are sorted properly for the dryer.
Do not overload. This wastes energy and causes
wrinkling.
Do not add fabric softener sheets once the load has
become warm. They may cause fabric softener stains.
Bounce® Fabric Conditioner Dryer Sheets have been
approved for use in all GE Dryers when used in
accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Do not dry the following items: fiberglass items,
woolens, rubber-coated items, plastics, items with
plastic trim and foam-filled items.
Care and Cleaning of the Dryer
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
Loading and using the dryer.
The Exterior: Wipe or dust any spills or washing
compounds with a damp cloth. Dryer control
panel and finishes may be damaged by some laundry
pretreatment soil and stain remover products. Apply
these products away from the dryer. The fabric may
then be washed and dried normally. Damage to your
dryer caused by these products is not covered by
your warranty.
Troubleshooting Tips
The Lint Filter: Clean the lint filter before each
use. Moisten your fingers and reach into the filter
opening. Run your fingers across the filter. Have a
qualified technician vacuum the lint from the dryer
once a year.
Stainless Steel: To clean stainless steel surfaces,
use a damp cloth with a mild, non-abrasive cleaner
suitable for stainless steel surfaces. Remove the
cleaner residue, and then dry with a clean cloth.
The Exhaust Duct: Inspect and clean the exhaust
ducting at least once a year to prevent clogging.
A partially clogged exhaust can lengthen the
drying time.
Follow these steps:
1
Turn off electrical supply by disconnecting the
plug from the wall socket.
2
3
Disconnect the duct from the dryer.
Vacuum the duct with the hose attachment and
reconnect the duct.
Consumer Support
The Exhaust Hood: Check from the outside that the
flaps of the hood move freely when operating. Make
sure that there is not wildlife (birds, insects, etc.) nesting
inside the duct or hood.
10

Some shaking/noise is normal.
Dryer may be sitting unevenly
• Move dryer to an even floor space, or adjust leveling legs
as necessary until even.
Greasy spots on clothes
Improper use of fabric softener
• Follow directions on fabric softener package.
Drying dirty items with
clean ones
• Use your dryer to dry only clean items. Dirty items can
stain clean items and the dryer.
Clothes were not
completely clean
• Sometimes stains which cannot be seen when the
clothes are wet appear after drying. Use proper washing
procedures before drying.

Possible Causes
What To Do
Clothes take too long
to dry
Improper sorting
• Separate heavy items from lightweight items (generally,
a well-sorted washer load is a well-sorted dryer load).
Large loads of heavy fabrics
(like beach towels)
• Large, heavy fabrics contain more moisture and take
longer to dry. Separate large, heavy fabrics into smaller
loads to speed drying time.
Controls improperly set
• Match control settings to the load you are drying.
Lint filter is full
• Clean lint filter before every load.
Improper or obstructed
ducting
• Check installation instructions for proper
ducting/venting.
• Make sure ducting is clean, free of kinks and
unobstructed.
• Check to see if outside wall damper operates easily.
• Check the Installation Instructions to make sure the
dryer venting is correct.
• Replace fuses or reset circuit breakers. Since most dryers
use 2 fuses/breakers, make sure both are operating.
Overloading/combining loads
• Do not put more than one washer load in the dryer
at a time.
Underloading
• If you are drying only one or two items, add a few items
to ensure proper tumbling.
Overdrying
• Select a shorter drying time.
• Remove items while they still hold a slight amount of
moisture. Select a Less Dry or Damp Dry setting.
Clothes shrink
