See your “Use and Care Guide” for troubleshooting information.
q Read “Dryer Use” in your “Use and Care Guide”.
q For power supply cord installation, plug into a grounded
outlet. For direct wire installation, turn on Power.
q If you live in a hard water area, use of a water softener is recommended to control the buildup of scale through the water system in the dryer. Over time, the buildup of lime
scale may clog different parts of the water system, which will reduce product performance. Excessive scale buildup may lead to the need for certain part replacement or repair.
