a chemical reaction that could cause a load to catch fire.
• Do not dry articles containing rubber, plastic or similar materials such as bras, galoshes, bath mats, rugs, bibs, baby
pants, plastic bags and pillows that may melt or burn.
Some rubber materials, when heated, can under certain
circumstances produce fire by spontaneous combustion.
WARNING
FIRE HAZARD
A clothes dryer produces combustible lint. The dryer
must be connected to an outdoors exhaust. Regularly
inspect the outdoor exhaust opening and remove any
accumulation of lint around the opening and in the
surrounding area.
• Clean the lint screen before or after each load. The interior of the dryer, lint screen housing and exhaust duct
should be cleaned approximately every 18 months by
qualified service personnel. An excessive amount of lint
build-up in these areas could result in inefficient drying
and possible fire. See Care and Cleaning.
• Do not operate the dryer if the lint screen is blocked,
damaged or missing. Fire hazard, overheating and
damage to fabrics can occur.
• Do not obstruct the flow of ventilating air. Do not stack
or place laundry or throw rugs against the front or back

is moving. Wait until the dryer has stopped completely
before reaching into the drum.
PREVENT INJURY AND DAMAGE TO THE DRYER
• All repairs and servicing must be performed by an
authorized servicer unless specifically recommended in
this Owner’s Guide. Use only authorized factory parts.
• Do not tamper with controls.
• Do not install or store the dryer where it will be exposed to the weather.
• A thermal limiter switch automatically turns off the
motor in the unlikely event of an overheated situation
(electric dryers only). A service technician must replace
the thermal limiter switch after correcting the fault.
• Failure to comply with these warnings could result in
serious personal injuries.
CAUTION
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California to publish a list of

Operating Instructions
Normal Operating Sounds
You may or may not hear the following sounds from your
new dryer:
A.SUSPENSION ROLLERS The dryer drum is
supported by a set of suspension rollers. At times
there may be a thumping or rolling sound when the
dryer starts. This may happen if the dryer has not
been in use for a period of time, or after a heavy
load has remained in the dryer drum for an extended
period, creating a temporary flat spot on the edge
of the roller. The noise should dissipate as the dryer
operates and the flat spots smooth out.
B.AIR FLOW SYSTEM Your dryer is equipped with a
high volume air handling system. In some installations
there may be some sounds associated with air
movement throughout the dryer, including the air
duct, blower, and exhaust system. This is normal and
can vary with load size and type.
C.GAS VALVE (Gas models only.) The flow of gas is
controlled by electric solenoids. During operation there
may be a clicking sound as the valve opens and closes to
control the gas flow.
D.GAS BURNER (Gas models only.) When the burner
is operating, there may be sounds generated as the
air flow mixes with the gas flame. This noise is normal
and will only occur when the gas is ignited in the
combustion tube.

1 Prepare load for drying.
• Dry items of similar fabric, weight and construction
in the same load.
• Separate dark items from light-colored items. Separate items that shed lint from those that attract lint.
• Check for stains which may not have been removed
in washing. Repeat stain removal process and wash
again before drying. Dryer heat may permanently
set some stains.
• Place delicate or small items in a mesh bag.
• Be sure buckles, buttons and trim are heatproof
and won’t damage the drum finish. Close zippers;
fasten hooks and Velcro®-like fasteners. Tie strings
and sashes to prevent snagging and tangling.

Operating Instructions
This manual covers many models and not all cycles, options, or features listed are available
on every model. Console shown above for reference only. Your model may differ.
Cycle Selection
Turn the cycle selector in either direction to the cycle
desired. The indicator for that cycle will be illuminated.
For best results
Follow the fabric care label instructions
on items to be dried.
To change the cycle once it has begun, press the cancel
button before selecting a new cycle. Just turning the

status lights will flash, but the original cycle will continue.
Auto Dry Cycles
Auto Dry cycles take the guesswork out of selecting the
correct drying time for each load. Moisture sensing bars
at the back of the dryer drum sense the moisture level of
the load as it tumbles through the heated air. With Auto
Dry cycles, the load will automatically be dried at the
selected temperature to the desired dryness level. Auto
Dry cycles save time and energy and protect fabrics.
The estimated drying time will be displayed for about 5
minutes. Then the outside of the display will light up in a
circular track to indicate the drying time is automatically
being determined by the sensors. When the load has
reached the selected dryness level, it will continue to
tumble during a cool down period. This helps reduce
wrinkling and makes items easier to handle during
unloading.
8
Drying time varies depending on size and dampness of
load and fabric type. If the load is too small or almost
dry, the moisture sensing bars may not detect enough
moisture to continue the cycle and the cycle may end
after a few minutes. If this occurs, select a Timed Dry
cycle.
Room temperature and humidity, type of installation and
electrical voltage or gas pressure can also affect drying
time.

Care and Cleaning
WARNING
FIRE HAZARD
A clothes dryer produces combustible lint. The
dryer must be connected to an outdoors exhaust.
Regularly inspect the outdoor exhaust opening
and remove any accumulation of lint around the
opening and in the surrounding area.
WARNING
To reduce risk of fire or serious injury to persons or property,
comply with the basic warnings listed in the Important
Safety Instructions and those listed below.
• Before cleaning the dryer interior, unplug the electrical
power cord to avoid electrical shock hazards.
• Do not use any type spray cleanser when cleaning the dryer
interior. Hazardous fumes or electrical shock could occur.
INSIDE
IMPORTANT
Clean the lint filter after every load.
• Clean the lint filter after every load. Lint build-up on the
filter restricts air flow, which causes longer drying times.
The filter is located at the bottom of the door opening. Remove by pulling straight up. Remove the lint and replace
the filter.
• Occasionally a waxy build-up may form on the lint filter
and/or moisture sensing bars from using dryer-added
fabric softener sheets. To remove this build-up, wash them
with warm, soapy water. Dry the filter thoroughly and
replace. Do not operate the dryer without the lint filter in
place.
• If the dryer drum becomes stained from noncolorfast
fabrics, clean the drum with a damp cloth and a mild liquid
household cleanser. Remove cleanser residue before drying the next load.
• Every 18 months an authorized servicer should clean the dryer cabinet interior and exhaust duct. These areas can collect
lint and dust over time. An excessive amount of lint build-up
could result in inefficient drying and possible fire hazard.
OUTSIDE
IMPORTANT
• Clean the cabinet with mild soap and water. Never use
harsh, gritty or abrasive cleansers.
• If the cabinet becomes stained, clean with diluted chlorine bleach (1 part bleach to 8 parts water). Rinse several
times with clear water.
• Remove glue residue from tape or labels with a mixture of
warm water and mild detergent. Or, touch residue with the
sticky side of the tape or label.
• When cleaning chrome parts use a window cleaner with
ammonia or mild soap and water.
• Before moving the dryer, place a strip of cardboard or thin
fiberboard under the front leveling legs to prevent damage
to the floor.
Do not store or place laundry products on top of
dryer at any time. They can damage the finish or
