INSTRUCTIONS
m 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.
m For a permanently connected dryer:
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 equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or service representative
or personne! 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.

Flexible metal vent must be fully extended and supported when
the dryer is in its final position. Remove excess flexible metal vent
to avoid sagging and kinking that can result in reduced airflow
and poor performance.
An exhaust hood should cap the vent to prevent rodents and
insects from entering the home.
Exhaust hood must be at least 12" (30.5 cm) from the ground or
any object that is in the path of the exhaust (such as flowers,
rocks or bushes, etc.).
If using an existing vent system, clean lint from the entire length
of the system and make sure exhaust hood is not plugged with
lint. Replace any plastic or metal foil vent with rigid metal or

Cool Down tumbles the load without heat during the last few
minutes of all cycles. Cool Down makes the loads easier to
handle and reduces wrinkling. The length of the Cool Down
depends on the load size and dryness level.
Drying tips
•
Follow care label directions when they are available.
•
If desired, add a fabric softener sheet. Follow package
instructions.
•
Remove the load from the dryer as soon as tumbling stops to
reduce wrinkling. This is especially important for permanent
press, knits, and synthetic fabrics.
•
Avoid drying heavy work clothes with lighter fabrics. This
could cause overdrying of lighter fabrics, leading to increased
shrinkage or wrinkling.
•
If you dry sheets in a mixed load or large items in the "Bulky
Items" cycle, rearrange the load when the Damp & Dry Signal
sounds. This will aid in the drying process.
When the dryer is off, it is not necessary to press the Control
On button before activating the Control Locked feature.

such as
Place dryer at least 18 inches (46 cm) above the floor
for a garage installation.
Failure to do so can resumt in death, explosion,
or fire.
To clean dryer drum
1. Make a paste with powdered laundry detergent and very
warm water.
Every load cleaning
The lint screen is located in the door opening of the dryer. Clean it
before or after each load. A screen blocked by lint can increase
drying time.
To clean
1.
Pull the lint screen straight up. Roll lint off the screen with
your fingers. Do not rinse or wash screen to remove lint. Wet
lint is hard to remove.
2.
Apply paste to a soft cloth.
OR
Apply a liquid, nonflammable household cleaner to the
stained area and rub with a soft cloth until all excess dye and
stains are removed.
3.
Wipe drum thoroughly with a damp cloth.
4.
Tumble a load of clean cloths or towels to dry drum.
NOTE: Garments which contain unstable dyes, such as
blue jeans or brightly colored cotton items, may discolor
dryer interior. These stains are not harmful to your dryer
not stain future loads of clothes. Dry unstable dye items
out to prevent dye transfer.
2. Push the lint screen firmly back into place.
IMPORTANT:
•
Do not run the dryer with the lint screen loose, damaged,
blocked, or missing. Doing so can cause overheating and
damage to both the dryer and fabrics.
Some towels made of synthetic fibers and natural fibers
(polyester and cotton blends) may shed more lint than other
towels, causing your dryer's lint screen to fill up faster. Be
sure to remove lint from the lint screen before and after drying
new towels.
•
If lint falls off the screen into the dryer during removal, check
the exhaust hood and remove the lint. See "Venting
Requirements."
As needed cleaning
Laundry detergent and fabric softener residue can build up on the
lint screen. This buildup can cause longer drying times for your
clothes, or cause the dryer to stop before your load is completely
dry. The screen is probably clogged if lint falls off while the screen
is in the dryer.
