Are you placing the dryer on a pedestal? You have the option of
purchasing pedestals of different heights separately for this dryer.
You may select a 10" (254 ram) pedestal or a 15.5" (394 ram)
pedestal with a storage drawer. The pedestal will add to the total
height of the dryer for a total height of approximately
46" (1168 ram) or 51.5" (1308 ram), respectively.
For a garage installation, you will need to place the 10" (254 ram)
pedestal at least 9" (229 ram) above the floor. You will need to
place the 15.5" (394 ram) pedestal at least 3" (76 ram) above the
floor.
For a garage installation, you will need to place the dwer
at least 18" (460 mm) above the floor. If using a pedestal, you
will need 18" (460 mm) to the bottom of the dryer.
Do not operate your dryer at temperatures below 45°F (7°C).
At lower temperatures, the dwer might not shut off at the end of
an automatic cycle. Drying times can be extended.
The dryer must not be installed or stored in an area where it will
be exposed to water and/or weather.
Check code requirements. Some codes limit, or do not permit,
installation of the dwer in garages, closets, mobile homes, or
sleeping quarters. Contact your local building inspector.

gasoline, away from dryer.
•
Additional clearances might be required for wall, door, and
floor moldings.
Place dryer at [east 18 inches (460 ram) above the floor
for a garage installation.
•
Additional spacing should be considered on all sides of the
dwer to reduce noise transfer.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion,

How Automatic Cycles work
The AccelerCare function improves drying performance with Auto
Moisture Sensing Plus, which advances the cycle as moisture is
extracted from clothing. A thermistor (electronic temperature
sensor) and moisture sensing strips in the dryer drum help
measure the amount of moisture in the clothes as they tumble.
An electronic control determines the load type to help save time,
avoid overdrying, and increase the accuracy of the end dryness
level. After the first 5 minutes of an automatic cycle, the
estimated time display will adjust based on the approximate load
size, cycle, dryness level selected, and amount of moisture left in
the clothes. When the clothes have reached approximately 80%
of the dryness level selected, the estimated time display will
adjust again, showing the final drying time. Auto Moisture
Sensing Plus takes the guesswork out of drying time and
enhances fabric care.
To restart the dryer
Close the door. Press and hold START until dryer starts.
NOTE: Drying will continue from where the cycle was interrupted
if you close the door and press START within 5 minutes. If the
cycle is interrupted for more than 5 minutes, the dryer will shut
off. Select new cycle settings before restarting the dryer.
This feature allows you to lock your settings to avoid unintended
use of the dryer. You can also use the Control Locked feature to
avoid unintended cycle or option changes during dryer operation.
To enable the Control Locked feature:
Press and hold CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds. The Control
Locked indicator light glows, and a single beep tone is heard.
To unlock, press and hold CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds.
The indicator light turns off.
To use a Timed Cycle
NOTE: A light next to each feature will glow green when the
feature is selected or will glow amber when the feature is
selectable. The light will not glow when the selection is
unavailable with the cycle or option combinations selected.
•
Press a Timed Cycles button or, to select Air Fluff, rotate
the control knob to the desired cycle.
Select the correct cycle and dryness level or temperature for your
load. If an Automatic Cycle is running, the display shows the
estimated cycle time, which is determined by your dryer
automatically sensing the dryness level of your load. If a Timed
Cycle is running, the display shows the exact number of minutes
remaining in the cycle.
15
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.
Cool Down
The Cool Down light glows green during the cool down part of
the cycle. Laundry cools for ease in handling.
Drying tips
•
Follow care label directions when they are available.
Clothes Dry
The Clothes Dry light glows green when the drying cycle is
finished. This indicator stays on during Wrinkle Prevent.
•
If desired, add a fabric softener sheet. Follow package
instructions.
•
To reduce wrinkling, remove the load from the dryer as soon
as tumbling stops. This is especially important for permanent
press, knits, and synthetic fabrics.
•
Avoid drying heavy work clothes together with lighter fabrics.
This could cause overdrying of lighter fabrics and lead to
increased shrinkage or wrinkling.
Cycle tips
• Dry most loads using the preset cycle settings.
•
Refer to the Automatic or Timed Cycles Preset Settings chart
(in the "Cycles" section) for a guide to drying various loads.
Drying temperature and Dryness Level are preset when
you choose an Automatic Cycle. You can select a
different dryness level, depending on your load, by
pressing Dryness Level and choosing More Dry, Normal,
or Less Dry.
NOTE: You cannot use the Timed Cycle Adjust and you
cannot modify temperature with the Automatic cycles.
If you wish to adjust the cycle length of a Timed Cycle,
press More Time or Less Time. Adjust the temperature of
a Timed Cycle by pressing TEMPERATURE until the
desired temperature is selected.
Wrinkle Prevent
The Wrinkle Prevent light glows green when this option is
selected. This indicator stays on with Clothes Dry.
Sensing/Revising
Est. Time
The Sensing/Revising Est. Time light glows green when moisture
sensing strips in the dryer drum are measuring the amount of

In an Automatic Cycle, if a wet item is not detected after
5 minutes, the dryer will run for a preset minimum run time
(based on the selected cycle and dryness level setting) and
then go into Cool Down. The Cool Down and Wrinkle Prevent
indicators will glow green, if selected.
In a Timed Cycle, the Wet light will glow green after 5 minutes

Vacation care
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.
Operate your dryer only when you are at home. If you will be on
vacation or not using your dryer for an extended period of time,
you should:
Clean the lint screen with a nylon brush every 6 months, or more
frequently, if it becomes clogged due to a residue buildup.

•
Is the dryer door firmly closed?
•
Was the Start button firmly pressed?
Large loads may require pressing and holding the Start
button for 2-5 seconds.

of the dryer requires 5" (127 ram). See "Installation
Instructions."

Is the exhaust vent or outside exhaust hood clogged
with lint, restricting air movement?
Run the dryer for 5-10 minutes. Hold your hand under the
outside exhaust hood to check air movement. If you do not
feel air movement, clean exhaust system of lint or replace
