Dryer cycles and settings
Cool down times
In all cycles, the heat shuts off
before the dryer stops tumbling.
This
cool down time helps:

l make
handling
the hot load items

The PERMANENT PRESS Cycle helps
provide the specjal core that permanent press and synthetic fabrics
need...a
period of heated drying
followed
by a 10 minute cool down.
The chart on page 4 suggests time
and temperature
settings for different
kinds of loads.
The EX HEAVY, HEAVY, MEDIUM and
LIGHT cycles describe
the loads
they ore designed
to dry.The chart
on page 4 tells what is meant by
EX HEAVY, HEAVY, MEDIUM and LIGHT
loads.
At each setting,the
dryerwill
run
about long enough to dry the load
described
by the setting. Example:
The HEAVY Cycle is designed
to be
long enough to dry a load of heavy
fabrics (towels, jeans. corduroys,
etc.]
when the Temperature
Selector is set
on PERM’T PRESS/HEAVY HIGH.

The PERMANENT PRESS Cycle has
10 minutes of cool down time at the
