WA R N I N G
Throughout this manual and on machine decals,
you will find precautionary statements
(“DANGER,” “WARNING,” and “CAUTION”) followed
by specific instructions. These precautions are
intended for the personal safety of the operator,
user, servicer, and those maintaining the machine.
To reduce the risk of fire, electric
shock, serious injury or death to
persons when using your dryer, follow
these basic precautions:
DANGER
W130
1. Read all instructions before using the dryer.
Indicates an imminently hazardous
situation that, if not avoided, will
cause severe personal injury or death.
2. Refer to the GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS in
the INSTALLATION manual for the proper
grounding of the dryer.

9. Do not repair or replace any part of the
dryer, or attempt any servicing unless
specifically recommended in the UserMaintenance Instructions or in published
user-repair instructions that you
understand and have the skills to carry out.
17. Do not put articles soiled with vegetable
or cooking oil in the dryer, as these oils
may not be removed during washing.
Due to the remaining oil, the
fabric may catch on fire by
itself.
10. Do not use fabric softeners or products to
eliminate static unless recommended by the
manufacturer of the fabric softener or
product.
18. To reduce the risk of fire, DO NOT put clothes
which have traces of any flammable
substances such as machine oil, flammable
chemicals, thinner, etc. or anything
containing wax or chemicals such as in mops
and cleaning cloths, or anything dry-cleaned
at home with dry-cleaning solvent in the
dryer.
11. To reduce the risk of fire, DO NOT DRY
plastics or articles containing foam rubber
or similarly textured rubberlike materials.
12. Always clean the lint filter after every load. A
layer of lint in the filter reduces drying
efficiency and prolongs drying time.
19. Use the dryer only for its intended purpose,
drying clothes.
13. Keep area around the exhaust opening and
adjacent surrounding area free from the
accumulation of lint, dust and dirt.
20. Always disconnect the electrical power to
the dryer before attempting service.
Disconnect the power cord by grasping the
plug, not the cord.
14. The interior of the dryer and the exhaust
duct should be cleaned periodically by
qualified service personnel.
21. If supply cord is damaged, it must be
replaced by a special cord or assembly
available from the manufacturer or its
service agent.
15. This gas appliance contains or produces a
chemical or chemicals which can cause death
or serious illness and which are known to the
State of California to cause cancer, birth
defects, or other reproductive harm. To
reduce the risk from substances in the fuel
or from fuel combustion, make sure this
appliance is installed, operated, and
maintained according to the manufacturer’s
instructions.
22. Install this dryer according to the
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS. All
connections for electrical power, grounding
and gas supply must comply with local codes
and be made by licensed personnel when
required. Do not do it yourself unless you
know how!
23. Remove laundry immediately after the dryer
stops.
16. Dryer will not operate with the loading door
open. DO NOT bypass the door safety switch
by permitting the dryer to operate with the
door open. The dryer will stop tumbling when
the door is opened. Do not use the dryer if it
does not stop tumbling when the door is
opened or starts tumbling without pressing
or turning the START mechanism. Remove
the dryer from use and call the service
person.
24. Always read and follow manufacturer’s
instructions on packages of laundry and
cleaning aids. Heed all warnings or
precautions. To reduce the risk of poisoning
or chemical burns, keep them out of reach of
children at all times (preferably in a locked
cabinet).
25. Do not tumble fiberglass curtains and
draperies unless the label says it can be
done. If they are dried, wipe out the cylinder
with a damp cloth to remove particles of
fiberglass.
-4802716
26. ALWAYS follow the fabric care
instructions supplied by the garment
manufacturer.
27. Never operate the dryer with any
guards and/or panels removed.
28. DO NOT operate the dryer
with missing or broken parts.
29. DO NOT bypass any safety devices.

Before Drying
Energy Saving Tips
• Follow the care labels on FLAME
RETARDANT, SCOTCH- GUARD™, etc.,
garments for the proper washing and drying.
• Make sure the lint filter is always clean.
• If loads should be damp for ironing, turn
timer knob to the ENERGY SAVER setting,
marked with a dot (•), in AUTOMATIC or TIME
DRY cycles.
• Do not overload the dryer.
• Do not overdry items.
• Remove items to be ironed while still damp.
• Large loads of similar fabrics dry the most
efficiently. However, dry permanent press in
smaller loads to prevent wrinkling.
Sort
If you have correctly sorted the items for
washing, they should be properly sorted for drying
too.
1. Sort by color.
• Use the correct cycle for the type of fabric
being dried.
• Locate your dryer so the exhaust duct is as
short and straight as possible.
2. Separate lint shedding fabrics and lint
receiving fabrics.
• Do not open the door during the drying cycle.
• Plan to do your laundry on low humidity days;
your clothes will dry faster.
Towels, flannels, chenille, cottons, rugs, etc., shed
lint. Corduroys, knits (including socks), permanent
press, and synthetics attract lint.
3. Separate no heat, low heat and high heat
items.
• Dry multiple loads of clothes one right after
another so dryer interior does not have to be
reheated for each load.
In any kind of drying, lightweight fabrics will dry
faster than heavyweight fabrics. If mixed loads
are dried together (such as sheets and towels),
remove the lighter weight fabrics when they are
dry to prevent overdrying and wrinkling. The best
method is to dry clothes which require the same
time and temperature in the same load.
Helps and Hints
• The directions for installation and proper
exhausting are given in the Installation
Instructions which are included with the
dryer.
• Static electricity may cause garments of
synthetic fibers (as in lingerie) to cling
together, especially if they are overdried. The
use of a liquid fabric softener in the rinse
water of the washer, or a fabric softener
sheet in the dryer, will soften clothes and
reduce static electricity.
• Do not wash or dry clothes that shed lint in
the same load with permanent press or knit
garments.
TLW1991N
TLW1991N
• Remove permanent press loads immediately
after dryer stops.
-6802716
Load
• The following illustrations show the ideal load
sizes for fabrics. The average load will fill the
cylinder one third to half full when wet.
WA R N I N G
Do not wash or dry items soiled with
vegetable or cooking oils. Some oils
may remain after washing and may
cause the fabric to catch on fire by
itself.
W527
• Do not overload your dryer. Bulk, not weight,
determines the load size. If the dryer is
overloaded, it could cause discoloration or
permanent heat damage to the load.
DRY2031N
DRY2031N
Cylinder with wet linens and cottons
• There should be space in the dryer for the
clothes to tumble freely and help to reduce
wrinkles.
• Large and small pieces together make up
loads which will tumble well. Permanent press
loads should be smaller to provide room for
tumbling. Proper tumbling allows for fewer
wrinkles.
• A load can be too small. Just a few small
pieces will not tumble properly. They will take
longer to dry and they may be wrinkled. For
small loads, add a couple of large towels or
non lint shedding items to aid in tumbling.

Operating Your Dryer
NOTE: The timer knob will not advance as quickly
in the AUTOMATIC cycles as it does in the TIME
DRY cycle. The time it takes for the timer to
advance depends on the type and size of the
load being dried.
WA R N I N G
To reduce the risk of fire, electric
shock, serious injury or death to
persons, read the Safety Information
section before operating the dryer.
The ENERGY SAVER settings, marked with a dot
(•), show which settings will use the least energy
and will leave items damp for easier ironing.
W520
Available Drying Cycles
Automatic Regular/Delicate Cycle
NOTE: Use the automatic cycles for drying
items that can be dried with heat. These cycles
automatically dry loads to the dryness level
selected.
Use for sturdy items like play or work clothes and
also for delicate items. The type of heat is
determined by choosing the proper Fabric
Selector option. There are two settings in the
AUTOMATIC REGULAR/DELICATE cycle — MORE
DRY and LESS DRY.
MORE DRY will dry very small loads and some
heavy items, such as blue jeans, but will overdry
lightweight items, such as sheets and shirts.
Overdrying can cause wrinkling, shrinking,
excessive lint conditions, and will use more energy
than necessary.
LESS DRY, which uses the least energy, will dry
large loads and lightweight items, such as sheets
and shirts, but might leave other items, such as
denim and heavy bath towels, more damp.
To increase energy savings and to make sure
loads are dried without overdrying, set your loads
on LESS DRY. If items are damp at the end of a
cycle, the timer knob needs to be set closer to
the MORE DRY setting the next time these loads
are dried. If items are overdry at the end of a
cycle, the timer knob should be set closer to
COOL DOWN when these loads are dried again.
Remember the settings that work best to get
ideal drying results.
The COOL DOWN period at the end of each cycle
provides items a chance to tumble with no heat
and cool down to room temperature. This
prevents wrinkles from setting if items cannot be
cared for immediately.
Time Dry Cycle
This cycle will operate dryer for up to 75 minutes.
Cottons and heavyweight items dry best between
50 and 75 minutes, and lightweight items dry
best between 20 and 40 minutes.
Automatic Permanent Press/Knits Cycle
Use for permanent press items and synthetics.
The type of heat is determined by selecting the
proper Fabric Selector option. There are two
settings in the AUTOMATIC PERMANENT PRESS/
KNITS cycle — MORE DRY and LESS DRY.

Make sure the load isn’t too small. Small loads may not tumble properly or dry
evenly.
Check load being dried. Heavy items dried with lightweight items will not dry as
quickly as the rest of the load. Refer to Sort section for proper sorting
information.
Check dryer for foreign objects (nails, coins, bobby pins, metal, plastic toys, etc.).
Remove items from dryer.
Make sure dryer is level. Uneven leveling can cause vibration.
Normal operating sounds include the tick of timer advancing, heat source going
on and off, and humming of air moving through the dryer and exhaust system.
Cycle advances too slowly
•
Automatic cycles advance slower than the Time Dry cycle. When in an Automatic
cycle, the time it takes for the timer to advance depends on the type and size of
the load being dried. When clothing has more moisture, the timer advances
slower than when the clothes are more dry.
Clothes are too wrinkled
•
•
Check heat setting. Overdrying can cause wrinkling.
Check load size. Large loads may not tumble properly and may cause wrinkling.
Clothes have odor
•
Check room for odors before drying clothes. Any odor (fried foods, paint, varnish,
cleaners, burning wood, etc.) will transfer to clothing as the dryer draws air from
the room. Ventilate room before drying clothes.
