End-of-cycle signal
The dryer sounds a signal to let you know when
the cycle is finished. The signal cannot be turned
off and is not adjustable.
The signal is helpful when you are drying permanent press, synthetics and other items that
should be taken out as soon as the dryer stops.
Clean lint screen before each load. If you
neglect to clean your lint screen, the signal will
sound. The (whistle tone) signal lets you know
the air flow is being restricted. Restricted air flow
reduces drying efficiency,
Turn off the dryer and clean the lint screen as
