NOTE: The Cycle Control Knob should point to an OFF area when the dryer is not in use. If the dryer is stopped before the cycle is finished, turn the Cycle Control Knob to an OFF area. Selecting a cycle Use your High Heat automatic cycle to dry most loads. See “Using the High Heat automatic cycle” and “Using the Timed (high heat) cycle” for more information. 1. Select a cycle by turning the Cycle Control Knob either way to a desired time or setting. 2. Stop when the indicator on the knob’s outer ring points to the setting you want. 3. Push the Start Button. Changing a selection: 1. Turn the Cycle Control Knob to point to a new setting. 2. Push the Start Button, if necessary. 6 dryer dryer Close the door and select a cycle. Push the Start Button. See pages 6-8 for additional setting information. Your dryer automatically stops when a cycle ends. Stopping dryer N DTE: If your dryer has a Consumer Buy Guide, remove it and place it with your Use alld Care Guide. Wipe out dryer drum with a d;rmp cloth before using to remove dust from slripping and storing. \ ! ix5@i$\ - Loads tumble without heat during the last few minutes of all heated cycles. This makes a load easier to handle and helps keep wrinkles from setting in. NOTE: l l To help reduce wrinkling, remove the load from the dryer as soon as tumbling stops. This is important for permanent press, knits and synthetic fabrics. Do not overdry. Overdrying can cause shrinkage, static cling, and damage some fabrics. Using cycle the High Heat the Timed (high Failure to do so could result in fire or damaged items. automatic Your High Heat cycle automatically shuts off when the selected dryness is reached. Use this cycle to dry most loads. 1. Set the Cycle Control Knob to point to the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (a) in your High Heat cycle. 2. Push the Start Button. The Cycle Control Knob does not move until the load is almost dry or the cool-down portion of the cycle has been reached. After the cool down, the Cycle Control Knob automatically moves to an OFF area and tumbling stops. The Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (e) correctly dries most loads. l If the items are drier than you like, select a setting closer to LESS DRY the next time you dry a similar load. l If items are not as dry as you like, complete drying using the Timed (high heat) cycle. Select a setting closer to VERY DRY the next time you dry a similar load. Using cycle Fire Hazard Do not dry heat sensitive fabrics, plastic, rubber, or some stuffed items with heat. Air/line dry these items on a line or rack. Energy’preferred automatic setting heat) Use your Timed (high heat) cycle to complete drying if some items are damp after automatic drying. This cycle is also useful to dry delicate items that require a short drying time. 1. Turn the Cycle Control Knob to the number of minutes you want in the Timed (high heat) cycle. 2. Push the Start Button. The last few minutes of this cycle are without heat to help make the load easier to handle. Timed (high heat) cycle 7 Using the Damp Dry cycle Use this cycle to dry damp items that do not require an entire drying cycle, or to dry items to damp level. Two examples are heavy cottons, such as jeans, which you do not want to become stiff, or cotton clothes which are easier to press when damp. 1. Set the Cycle Control Knob on DAMP DRY. 2. Push the Start Button. The last few minutes of this cycle are without heat to make the load easier to handle. Damp dry cycle Caring For Your Dryer Dryers require regular maintenance. Maintenance-every Cleaning the lint Follow the sugs estions below to maintain your dryer properly. load screen The lint screen is located under a lid on top of the dryer. Clean It before each load. A screen blocked by lint can increase drying time. Product and Fabric Damage Hazard 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. 1. Open the lid and pull the lint screen straight out. 2. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers. Do not rinse or wash the screen to remove lint. Wet lint is hard to remove. 3. Push the lint screen firmly back into place and close the lid. Maintenance-as needed Use the following suggestions about cleaning and lint removal to maintain your dryer and keep it operating efficiently. Cleaning a clogged lint screen Laundry detergents and fabric softeners can cause a residue build-up on the lint screen. A clogged lint screen can extend drying times. Clean the lint screen every six months or more frequently if it becomes clogged due to a residue build-up. Use the following method: 1. Wet both sides of lint screen with hot water. 2. Wet a nylon brush with hot water and liquid detergent. 3. Scrub lint screen with the brush until all residue build-up is removed. 4. Rinse with hot water. 5. Thoroughly dry lint screen with a clean towel and replace in dryer. Cleaning the dryer interior Electrical Shock, Personal Injury and Fire Hazard l Turn off the electrical cleaning the interior. power before l Make sure the dryer is cool. l Use nonflammable cleaner. Failure to do so could result in electrical shock or injury, fire or explosion. Garments which contain unstable dyes, such as denim blue jeans or brightly colored cotton items, may discolor the dryer interior. If you want to remove stains from dryer drum, use powdered laundry detergent. 1. Make a paste with detergent and very warm water. 2. Apply paste to a soft cloth and scrub area until all excess dye is removed. 3. Wipe thoroughly with a damp cloth. 4. Tumble a load of rags to dry. Cleaning the dryer exterior Wipe with a soft, damp cloth. 9 Removing accumulated lint Lint can gather inside the dryer and be a fuel for fire. It is recommended that lint be removed every 2 to 3 years, or more often, depending on dryer usage. Cleaning should be done by a qualified person. If you have any questions, please call our toll-free number l-800-253-1 301. Electrical Shock and Personal Injury Hazard l Unplug the power supply cord or turn off the electrical power before removing dryer panels. e Make sure the dryer is cool. B Dryer parts can have sharp edges. Use care when handling. mWhen replacing front panel after lint removal, the wire clips holding the door switch wires must be anchored to top of front and side panels. Wires MUST NOT touch rotating drum. (See page 11, Step 7.) Failure to do so could result in electrical shock or personal injury. Thermostats Heat element For all electric dryers, or gas dryers which have a lower front access panel NOTE: See page 11 if your dryer is gas and has a full front panel. 1. Unplug the power supply cord or turn off the electrical power. 2. Remove back panel (electric) or lower front access panel (gas). See the Installation Instructions. 3.
