ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS U.S.A. ONLY
Electric Models Only
• 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 branchcircuit installations, (2) mobile homes, (3)
recreational vehicles, and (4) areas where
local codes prohibit grounding through the
neutral conductors.
If using a power supply cord:
Use a UL listed power supply cord kit marked
for use with clothes dryers. The kit should
contain:
• A UL listed 30-amp power supply cord, rated 120/240 volt minimum. The cord should
be type SRD or SRDT and be at least 4 ft
(1.22 m) long. The wires that connect to the
dryer must end in ring terminals or spade
terminals with upturned ends.
• A UL listed strain relief.
It is your responsibility
• To contact a qualified electrical installer.
• To be sure that the electrical connection
is adequate and in conformance with the
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70latest edition and all local codes and ordinances.
The National Electric Code requires a 4wire supply connection for homes built after
1996, dryer circuits involved in remodeling
after 1996, and all mobile home installations.
A copy of the above code standards can be
obtained from: National Fire Protection Association, One Batterymarch Park, Quincy,
MA 02269.
• To supply the required 3 or 4 wire, single
phase, 120/240 volt, 60 Hz., AC only electrical supply (or 3 or 4 wire, 120/208 volt
electrical supply, if specified on the serial/
rating plate) on a separate 30-amp circuit,
fused on both sides of the line. A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended.
Connect to an individual branch circuit. Do
not have a fuse in the neutral or grounding
circuit.
• Do not use an extension cord.
• If codes permit and a separate ground wire
is used, it is recommended that a qualified
electrician determine that the ground path
is adequate.
Electrical Connection
To properly install your dryer, you must determine the type of electrical connection you will
be using and follow the instructions provided
for it here.
• If local codes do not permit the connection
of a neutral ground wire to the neutral wire,
see “Optional 3-wire connection,” page
2-13.

If your outlet looks like this:
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:
4-wire receptacle (14-30R)
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.
If your outlet looks like this:
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 terminal or lead on the dryer.
WARNING: Improper connection of the
equipment-grounding 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.
3-wire receptacle (10-30R)
Then choose a 3-wire power supply cord with

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.
WARNING: Improper connection of the
equipment-grounding 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 provided with the dryer;
if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

time (in minutes) will show in the display.
NOTE: A default time is displayed when an
automatic cycle is selected. During the first
few minutes of the drying process, the cycle
time may automatically vary from the default
time based on the size and fabric type of the
load. Toward the end of the drying process,
the estimated time display will adjust again,
showing the final drying time.
•
How the Accelercare™ Drying
System Works
Moisture-sensing strips and temperature sensors inside the dryer drum monitor how fast the

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.
Is the valve open on the gas supply line?
Unusual sounds
•
•
Is it a gas dryer?
The gas valve clicking is a normal operation
sound.
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?
When balled up, the load will bounce, causing the dryer to vibrate. Separate the load
items and restart the dryer.
Has the dryer had a period of non-use?
If the dryer hasn’t been used for a while,
there may be a thumping sound during the
first few minutes of operation.
Is a coin, button or paper clip caught
between the drum and front or rear of
the dryer?
Check the front and rear edges of the drum
for small objects. Clean out pockets before
laundering.

codes:
Call for service.
“AF” (dryer is experiencing a low airflow
condition):
To clear the code, press STOP once and
the estimated time remaining countdown will
return to the display. “AF” will continue to
appear with each cycle until the low airflow
condition is resolved.
Try the following:
Clean the lint screen.
Check that the vent pipe from the dryer to
the wall is clear.
Check at the outside of the home that the
vent exhaust hood is not blocked.
Have your home venting run cleaned professionally.
If the problem continues, refer to “Assistance
or Service” in the Use and Care Guide.
DRYER RESULTS
WARNING
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.
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors,
such as gasoline, away from dryer.
Place dryer at least 18 inches (46 cm)
above the floor for a garage installation.
Failure to do so can result in death,
explosion, or fire.
WARNING
Fire Hazard
Use a heavy metal vent.
Do not use a plastic vent.
Do not use a metal foil vent.
Failure to follow these instructions can
result in death or fire.
•
•
•
•
•
•
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
size?
Use 4˝ (10.2 cm) diameter vent material.
•
•
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).
Is the dryer located in a closet?
Closet doors must have ventilation openings at the top and bottom of the door. The
rear of the dryer requires 5˝ (12.7 cm) of
airspace, and the sides and front of the dryer
require a minimum of 1˝ (2.5 cm). See the
Installation Instructions.
Has the Air Fluff modifier been selected?
Select the right temperature for the types
of garments being dried. See “Modifiers,”
page 3-5.
Is the load too large and heavy to dry
quickly?
Separate the load to tumble freely.
Cycle time too short
3-12
WARNING
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 Sensor Dry Cycles.
Increasing or decreasing the dryness level
will change the amount of drying time in a
cycle.
•
•
Is the lint screen clogged?
Clean lint screen. Check for air movement.
•
Stains on load or drum
•
Was the load removed from dryer at the
end of the cycle?
Was the dryer overloaded?
Dry smaller loads that can tumble freely.
Odors
Lint on load
•
Loads are wrinkled
Was dryer fabric softener properly used?
Add dryer fabric softener sheets at the beginning of the cycle. Fabric softener sheets
added to a partially dried load can stain your
garments.
Drum stains are caused by dyes in clothing
(usually blue jeans). This will not transfer
to other clothing.
•
3-13
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.

COMPONENT TESTING
Before testing any of the components, perform
the following checks:
• The most common cause for control failure
is corrosion on connectors. Therefore, disconnecting and reconnecting wires will be
necessary throughout test procedures.
• All tests/checks should be made with a
VOM or DVM having a sensitivity of 20,000
ohms-per-volt DC, or greater.
• Check all connections before replacing
components, looking for broken or loose
wires, failed terminals, or wires not pressed
into connectors far enough.
• Resistance checks must be made with
power cord unplugged from outlet, and
with wiring harness or connectors disconnected.

DIAGNOSTIC GUIDE
3.
Before servicing, check the following:
• Make sure there is power at the wall outlet.
• Has a household fuse blown or circuit
breaker tripped? Time delay fuse?
• Is dryer vent properly installed and clear of
lint or obstructions?
• All tests/checks should be made with a
VOM (volt-ohm-milliammeter) or DVM
(digital-voltmeter) having a sensitivity of
20,000 ohms per volt DC or greater.
• Check all connections before replacing
components. Look for broken or loose
wires, failed terminals, or wires not pressed
into connectors far enough.
• A potential cause of a control not functioning is corrosion on connections. Observe
connections and check for continuity with
an ohmmeter.
• Connectors: Look at top of connector.
Check for broken or loose wires. Check
for wires not pressed into connector far
enough to engage metal barbs.
• Resistance checks must be made with dryer unplugged or power disconnected.
DIAGNOSTIC: Unsuccessful Entry
If entry into diagnostic mode is unsuccessful,
press the Pause/Cancel button twice, then
press the Power button.
• If indicators come on, try to use a different
button than was used to activate the diagnostic test mode. If that button fails to enter
the diagnostic mode, something is faulty,
and it is not possible to enter the diagnostic
mode. Go to TEST #2.
• If no indicators come on after pressing the
Power button, go to TEST #1.
DIAGNOSTIC: Saved Fault Codes
If there are saved fault codes, the most recent
fault code will alternately show “F-” and “XX”
where XX is the fault code.

thermistor or wire harness is either open
or shorted.
• Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
• Check wire connections at the machine
control electronics and thermistor. See
Accessing & Removing the Electronic
Assemblies, and for thermistor location, see Figure 9.
• If wire connections are OK, check the exhaust thermistor resistance per step 5.
If the exhaust temperature is not within
specified limits, or you have come here
from step 3, remove the P4 connector,
then measure the resistance between
P4-3 (red wire) and P4-6 (red wire) at the
connector. See Figure 15, for connector
location; and Accessing & Removing the
Electronic Assemblies.
• If the resistance is OK, check P4-3 and
P4-6 to machine ground.
• If resistance is greater than 0 (zero),
replace wiring harness.
NOTE: All thermistor resistance measurements must be made while dryer is
disconnected from power.

DIAGNOSTIC GUIDE
3.
Before servicing, check the following:
• Make sure there is power at the wall outlet.
• Has a household fuse blown or circuit
breaker tripped? Time delay fuse?
• Is dryer vent properly installed and clear of
lint or obstructions?
• All tests/checks should be made with a
VOM (volt-ohm-milliammeter) or DVM
(digital-voltmeter) having a sensitivity of
20,000 ohms per volt DC or greater.
• Check all connections before replacing
components. Look for broken or loose
wires, failed terminals, or wires not pressed
into connectors far enough.
• A potential cause of a control not functioning is corrosion on connections. Observe
connections and check for continuity with
an ohmmeter.
• Connectors: Look at top of connector.
Check for broken or loose wires. Check
for wires not pressed into connector far
enough to engage metal barbs.
• Resistance checks must be made with dryer unplugged or power disconnected.
DIAGNOSTIC TESTS
These tests allow factory or service personnel to test and verify all inputs to the machine
control electronics. You may want to do a
quick and overall checkup of the dryer with

If after 60 seconds, F-22 or F-23 flashes
in the display and the dryer shuts off, the
thermistor or wire harness is either open
or shorted.
• Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
• Check wire connections at the machine
control electronics and thermistor. See
Accessing & Removing the Electronic
Assemblies, and for thermistor location see Figure 10.
• If wire connections are OK, check exhaust thermistor resistance per step 5.
If F-22 or F-23 does not flash in the display, the connections to the thermistor
are good. Therefore, check the exhaust
temperature value at any or all of the
temperature levels in question, using the
Timed Dry cycle, and the following process:
Hold a glass bulb thermometer capable of
reading from 90° to 180°F (32° to 82°C)
