Your dryer tumbles the load without heat during the last few minutes
of all cycles to make the load easier to handle.
Drying tips
■
Follow care label directions when they are available.
■
If desired, add a fabric softener sheet. Follow package
instructions.
■
Remove load from the dryer as soon as tumbling stops to
reduce wrinkling. This is especially important for permanent
press, knits, and synthetic fabrics.
Cycle and temperature tips
Use this cycle for items that require drying without heat, such
as rubber, plastic, and heat-sensitive fabrics. See the chart for
examples of items that can be dried using an air cycle.

*(Minutes). Reset cycle to complete drying, if needed.
When using an air cycle
■ Check to see that coverings are securely stitched.
■
Dry most loads using the Energy Preferred Automatic
Setting (*).
■
Shake and fluff pillows by hand periodically during cycle.
■
Use a no heat (air) setting for rubber, plastic, or heat-sensitive
fabrics.
■
Dry item completely. Foam rubber pillows are slow to dry.
■
Line-dry bonded or laminated fabrics.
Timed Dry Cycle
NOTE: If you have questions about drying temperatures for various
loads, refer to the care label directions.
Cycles
Use this cycle to complete drying if items are still damp after the
automatic cycle.
Timed Dry is also useful for:
■ Heavyweight items and work clothes that require a long drying
time.
■
Lightweight items, such as lingerie, blouses, and knits that
require a short drying time.
For damp dry, turn the Cycle Control knob to 30 minutes or less.
End of Cycle Signal
The dryer sounds a signal to let you know when the cycle is finished.
The signal is not adjustable and cannot be turned off. The signal is
helpful when you are drying permanent press, synthetics, and other
items that should be removed as soon as the dryer stops.
Cycle Control knob
Permanent Press
This automatic cycle shuts off the dryer when the selected
dryness is reached. The Cycle Control knob does not move
until the load is almost dry. After the cool down, the knob
automatically turns to an Off area and tumbling stops.
Dry most loads using the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (*).
■ If the load is drier than you like, select a setting closer to
Less Dry the next time you dry a similar load.
■
If the load is not as dry as you like, complete drying using the
Timed Drying cycle. The next time you dry a similar load, select
a setting closer to More Dry.
NOTE: Drying time with an automatic cycle varies according to the
type of fabric and size of load.
10
DRYER CARE
Cleaning the Dryer Location
3. Wet a nylon brush with hot water and liquid detergent. Scrub lint
screen cover and body with the brush to remove residue buildup.
Keep dryer area clear and free from items that would obstruct the
flow of combustion and ventilation air.
4. Rinse with hot water.
5. Thoroughly dry lint screen body and cover with a clean towel.
Replace in dryer.
Cleaning the Dryer Interior
To clean dryer drum
Cleaning the Lint Screen
Every load cleaning
The lint screen is located inside the dryer drum, on the back wall.
Clean it before each load. A screen blocked by lint can increase
drying time.
To clean
1. Open the door and pull the lint screen straight out.
1. Make a paste with powdered laundry detergent and very warm
water.
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 is removed.
3. Wipe drum thoroughly with a damp cloth.
4. Tumble a load of clean cloths or towels to dry drum.
NOTE: Garments that contain unstable dyes, such as denim blue
jeans or brightly colored cotton items, may discolor the dryer interior.
These stains are not harmful to your dryer and will not stain future
loads of clothes. Dry unstable dye items inside out to avoid transfer
of dye.
Removing Accumulated Lint
From Inside the Dryer Cabinet
2. Squeeze body of lint screen lightly while pulling off the cover.
3. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers. Do not rinse or wash
screen to remove lint. Wet lint is hard to remove.
4. Replace cover on lint screen body. Push the lint screen firmly
back into place and close the door.
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.
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 the screen.
Clean the lint screen with a nylon brush every 6 months, or more
frequently, if it becomes clogged due to a residue buildup.
To wash
1. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers.
2. Wet both the lint screen cover and body with hot water.
Lint should be removed every 2 years, or more often, depending
on dryer usage. Cleaning should be done by a qualified person.
From the Exhaust Vent
Lint should be removed every 2 years, or more often, depending
on dryer usage.
Vacation and Moving Care
Vacation care
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:
1. Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
2. Clean lint screen. See “Cleaning the Lint Screen.”
Moving care
1. Unplug the power supply cord.
2. Make sure leveling legs are secure in dryer base.
3. Use tape to secure dryer door.

TROUBLESHOOTING
First try the solutions suggested here to possibly avoid the cost of a service call...
Dryer Operation
Dryer Results
Dryer will not run
■
Has a household fuse blown, or has a circuit breaker
tripped?
There may be 2 fuses or circuit breakers for the dryer. Check
that both fuses are intact and tight, or that both circuit breakers
have not tripped. Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker.
If the problem continues, call an electrician.
■
Is the correct power supply available?
This electric dryer requires 120-volt power supply. Check with
a qualified electrician.
■
Was a regular fuse used?
Use a time-delay fuse.
■
Is the dryer door firmly closed?
■
Was the PUSH TO START button firmly pressed?
Clothes are not drying satisfactorily, drying times are too
long, or load is too hot
NOTE: The compact dryer operates at a lower wattage. Expect
longer drying times.
■ Is the lint screen clogged with lint?
Lint screen should be cleaned before each load.
No heat
■
Has a household fuse blown, or has a circuit breaker
tripped?
The drum may be turning, but you may not have heat. Electric
dryers use 2 fuses or circuit breakers. Replace the fuse or reset
the circuit breaker. If the problem continues, call an electrician.
Unusual sounds
■
Has the dryer had a period of non-use?
If the dryer hasn’t been used for a while, there may be a
thumping sound during the first few minutes of operation.
■
Is a coin, button, or paper clip caught between the drum
and front or rear of the dryer?
Check the front and rear edges of the drum for small objects.
Clean out pockets before laundering.
■
Are the four legs installed, and is the dryer level front to
back and side to side?
The dryer may vibrate if not properly installed. See the
Installation Instructions.
■
Is the clothing knotted or balled up?
When balled up, the load will bounce, causing the dryer to
vibrate. Separate the load items and restart the dryer.
Timer does not noticeably advance
■
Is the dryer set to Timed or Air Dry?
The timer moves slowly and continuously for the timed setting.
■
Is the dryer set to Automatic Drying?
The timer moves only when the clothing is mostly dry.
12
■
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 exhaust
vent with heavy metal or flexible metal vent. See “Venting
Requirements.”
■
Are fabric softener sheets blocking the grille?
Use only one fabric softener sheet, and use it only once.
■
Is the exhaust vent the correct length?
Check that the exhaust vent is not too long or has too many
turns. Long venting will increase drying times. See “Venting
Requirements.”
■
Is the exhaust vent diameter the correct size?
Use 4" (102 mm) diameter vent material.
Lint on load
■
Is the lint screen clogged?
Lint screen should be cleaned before each load.
Stains on load or drum
■
Was dryer fabric softener properly used?
Add dryer fabric softener sheets at the beginning of the cycle.
Fabric softener sheets added to a partially dried load can stain
your garments.
Drum stains are caused by dyes in clothing (usually blue jeans).
This will not transfer to other clothing.
Loads are wrinkled
■
■
Was the load removed from dryer at the end of the cycle?
■
Was the dryer tightly packed?
Dry smaller loads that can tumble freely.
Is the dryer located in a room with temperature below
45ºF (7ºC)?
Proper operation of dryer cycles requires temperatures above
45ºF (7ºC).
■
Is the dryer located in a closet?
Closet doors must have ventilation openings at the top and
bottom of the door. The front of the dryer requires a minimum of
1" (25 mm) of airspace, and, for most installations, the rear of the
dryer requires 5" (127 mm). See the Installation Instructions.
■
Has an air dry cycle been selected?
Select the right cycle for the types of garments being dried.
■
Is the load too large and heavy to dry quickly?
Separate the load to tumble freely.
Odors
■
Have you recently been painting, staining, or varnishing in
the area where your dryer is located?
If so, ventilate the area. When the odors or fumes are gone from
the area, rewash and dry the clothing.
■
Is the dryer being used for the first time?
The new electric heating element may have an odor. The odor
will be gone after the first cycle.
