SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Read all instructions before using this dryer.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow these Important Safety Instructions:
• Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
Prevent Fire
• Do not dry items that have been previously cleaned in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, cleaning solvents, kerosene, waxes,
etc. Do not store these items on or near the dryer. These substances give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
• Do not dry articles containing rubber, plastic or similar materials such as bras, galoshes, bath mats, rugs, bibs, baby pants, plastic
bags and pillows that may melt or burn. Some rubber materials, when heated, can under certain circumstances produce fire by
spontaneous combustion.
• Clean the lint screen before or after each load. The interior of the dryer, lint screen housing and exhaust duct should be cleaned
approximately every 18 months by qualified service personnel. An excessive amount of lint build-up in these areas could result in
inefficient drying and possible fire. See Care and Cleaning.
• Do not operate the dryer if the lint screen is blocked, damaged or missing. Fire hazard, overheating and damage to fabrics can
occur. If your dryer has a drying rack, always replace the lint screen when finished using the drying rack.
• - Risk of Fire - A clothes dryer produces combustible lint. The dryer must be connected to an exhaust outdoors. Regularly inspect
the outdoor exhaust opening and remove any accumulation of lint around the outdoor exhaust opening and in the surrounding area.
• Do not obstruct the flow of ventilating air. Do not stack or place laundry or throw rugs against the front or back of the dryer.
• Do not spray any type of aerosol into, on or near dryer at any time.
• Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static unless recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
• Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in your dryer. Items contaminated with cooking oils may contribute to a chemical reaction
that could cause a load to catch fire.
• Failure to comply with these warnings could result in fire, explosion, serious bodily injury and/or damage to the rubber or plastic
parts of the dryer.
Protect Children
• Do not allow children to play on or in the dryer. Close supervision of children is necessary when the dryer is used near children.
As children grow, teach them the proper, safe use of all appliances.
• Destroy the carton, plastic bag and other packing materials after the dryer is unpacked. Children might use them for play. Cartons
covered with rugs, bedspreads or plastic sheets can become airtight chambers.
• Keep laundry products out of children's reach. To prevent personal injury, observe all warnings on product labels.
• Before the dryer is removed from service or discarded, remove the dryer door to prevent accidental entrapment.
• Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
Prevent Injury
• To prevent shock hazard and assure stability during operation, the dryer must be installed and electrically grounded by a qualified
service person in accordance with local codes. Installation instructions are packed in the dryer for the installer's reference. Refer to
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for detailed grounding procedures. If the dryer is moved to a new location, have it checked and
reinstalled by a qualified service person.
• To prevent personal injury or damage to the dryer, the electrical power cord of a gas dryer must be plugged into a properly grounded
and polarized 3-prong outlet. The third grounding prong must never be removed. Never ground the dryer to a gas pipe.
Do not use an extension cord or an adaptor plug.
• ALWAYS disconnect the dryer from the electrical supply before attempting any service or cleaning. Failure to do so can result
in electrical shock or injury.
• Do not use any type spray cleanser when cleaning dryer interior. Hazardous fumes or electrical shock could occur.
• To prevent injury, do not reach into the dryer if the drum is moving. Wait until the dryer has stopped completely before reaching
into the drum.
• To prevent injury and damage to the dryer:
- All repairs and servicing must be performed by an authorized servicer unless specifically recommended in this Owner's
Guide. Use only authorized factory parts.
- Do not tamper with controls.
- Do not install or store the dryer where it will be exposed to the weather.
• A thermal limiter switch automatically turns off the motor in the unlikely event of an overheated situation (electric dryers only). A
service technician must replace the thermal limiter switch after correcting the fault.
• Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.

Drying Procedures
• Follow the guidelines below for preparing the load for drying.
• Read the Operating Instructions card for operating your specific model.
• Always read and follow fabric care labels and laundry product labels.
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons, read
Important Safety Instructions before operating this dryer.
Follow fabric care label instructions.
1. Prepare items for drying.
• Dry items of similar fabric, weight and construction in the same load.
• Separate dark items from light-colored items. Separate items that shed lint
from those that attract lint. If an item sheds lint, turn it inside out.
• Be sure buckles, buttons and trim are heatproof and won't damage the drum
finish. Close zippers, fasten hooks and Velcro®-like fasteners. Tie strings and
sashes to prevent snagging and tangling.
• If possible, turn pockets inside out for even drying.
• Check for stains which may not have been removed in washing. Dryer heat
may permanently set some stains. Repeat stain removal process before
drying.
• Place small items in a mesh bag to prevent tangling and for easy removal.
2. Check that lint screen is clean and in place.
Place small items in a mesh bag.
3. Load the dryer.
• The average load will fill the drum 1/3 to 1/2 full. Items need room to tumble
freely for even drying and less wrinkling. Do not overload dryer.
• When drying large items, dry only 2 or 3 at a time. Fill out the load with small
and medium sized items.
• For delicate or very small loads, add 2 lint-free towels for better drying, less
wrinkling, and to prevent grease stains caused by fabric softener sheets.
• Do not overdry items. Overdrying can cause wrinkling, shrinkage, harshness,
and a build-up of static electricity, which can produce more lint.
• If desired, add a dryer fabric softener sheet.
4. Close the dryer door and select the cycle, temperature, dryness level
and options desired. See Operating Instructions for your specific model
information.
Fill dryer drum 1/3 to 1/2 full.
5. Press START to begin the cycle.
• To add or remove items when the dryer is running open the door. The dryer
will stop when the door is opened. Allow the drum to come to a complete
stop before reaching inside.
• Close the door and press START to resume the cycle.
6. When the cycle ends, remove items immediately and hang or fold.

Features
End of Cycle Signal
A signal will sound at the end of the cycle and periodically during Press Saver at
the volume level selected. (some models)
Drum Light (some models)
A drum light will come on whenever the door is opened to illuminate the dryer drum
during loading and unloading. Closing the door turns off the light.
Reversible Dryer Door
Your dryer is equipped with a reversible door. The door can be hinged on the right
or left side. Refer to the INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for directions on
changing the door.
Drying Rack (some models)
Use the drying rack to dry items which should not be tumble dried.
1. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen.
2. Insert drying rack into the dryer drum. Place the front bar under the lip of the
lint screen opening.
3. Place items to be dried on top of the rack. Weight should not exceed 10 lbs.
Leave space between items, but do not let items hang over the sides or through
the grids. Do not tumble other items when using the drying rack.
4. Select Timed Dry. Use only the Air Fluff/No Heat option for items containing
plastic, foam rubber, rubber-like materials, feathers or down.
5. When items are dry, remove the rack and replace the lint screen. If lint screen
is not in place, tumbling items could enter the exhaust system and cause
damage to the dryer.
Place the front bar under
the lip of the lint screen opening.
Care and Cleaning
To reduce risk of fire or serious injury to persons or property, comply
with the basic warnings listed in Important Safety Instructions and those listed
below.
•
•
Before cleaning the dryer interior, unplug the electrical power cord to avoid
electrical shock hazards.
Do not use any type spray cleanser when cleaning dryer interior. Hazardous
fumes or electrical shock could occur.
Inside
• Clean the lint screen after every load. Lint build-up in the screen restricts air flow,
which causes longer drying times. The screen is located at the bottom of the door
opening. Remove by pulling straight up. Remove the lint and replace the screen.
CAUTION - Risk of Fire - A clothes dryer produces combustible lint. The dryer
must be connected to an exhaust outdoors. Regularly inspect the outdoor
exhaust opening and remove any accumulation of lint around the outdoor
exhaust opening and in the surrounding area.
•
Clean lint screen after every load.
•
•
Occasionally a waxy build-up may form on the lint screen from using dryer-added
fabric softener sheets. To remove this build-up, wash the lint screen in warm,
soapy water. Dry thoroughly and replace. Do not operate the dryer without the
lint screen in place.
If the dryer drum becomes stained from noncolorfast fabrics, clean the drum with
a damp cloth and a mild liquid household cleanser. Remove cleanser residue
before drying the next load.
Every 18 months an authorized servicer should clean the dryer cabinet interior
and exhaust duct. These areas can collect lint and dust over time. An excessive
amount of lint build-up could result in inefficient drying and possible fire hazard.
5
Care and Cleaning (continued)
Outside
• Clean the cabinet with mild soap and water. Never use harsh, gritty or
abrasive cleansers.
•
If the cabinet becomes stained, clean with diluted chlorine bleach [1/2 cup (120
ml) in 1 quart (.95 liter) water]. Rinse several times with clear water.
•
Remove glue residue from tape or labels with a mixture of warm water and mild
detergent. Or, touch residue with the sticky side of the tape or label.
•
Before moving the dryer, place a strip of cardboard or thin fiberboard under
the front leveling legs to prevent damage to floor.
Do not store or place laundry products
on top of dryer at any time. They can
damage the finish or controls.
