WARNING - RISK OF FIRE
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons when using this dryer, comply with the basic warnings
listed below. Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don’t follow these Important Safety Instructions:
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 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.
• 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.
WARNING
FIRE HAZARD
A clothes dryer produces combustible lint. The dryer
must be connected to an outdoors exhaust. Regularly
inspect the outdoor exhaust opening and remove any
accumulation of lint around the opening and in the
surrounding area.
• 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.
• 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 continue to use the dryer is you hear squeaking,
grinding, rubbing or other unusual noises. This could
be a sign of mechanical breakdown and lead to fire or
serious injury. Contact a qualified technician immediately.
• 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.

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.
PREVENT INJURY AND DAMAGE TO THE DRYER
• All repairs and servicing must be performed by an
authorized servicer unless specifically recommended in

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Normal Operating Sounds
A
You may or may not hear the following sounds from your new
dryer:
A. WATER VALVE (Steam models only.) The flow of water is
controlled by electric solenoids. During operation there may
be a clicking sound as the valve opens and closes to control
the water flow.
B. SUSPENSION ROLLERS The dryer drum is supported by a
set of suspension rollers. At times there may be a thumping
or rolling sound when the dryer starts. This may happen if
the dryer has not been in use for a period of time, or after a
heavy load has remained in the dryer drum for an extended
period, creating a temporary flat spot on the edge of the
roller. The noise should dissipate as the dryer operates and
the flat spots smooth out.
C. AIR FLOW SYSTEM Your dryer is equipped with a high
volume air handling system. In some installations there may
be some sounds associated with air movement throughout
the dryer, including the air duct, blower, and exhaust system.
This is normal and can vary with load size and type.
D. GAS VALVE (Gas models only.) The flow of gas is controlled
by electric solenoids. During operation there may be a clicking
sound as the valve opens and closes to control the gas flow.
E. GAS BURNER (Gas models only.) When the burner is
operating, there may be sounds generated as the air flow
mixes with the gas flame. This noise is normal and will only
occur when the gas is ignited in the combustion tube.

CAUTION
Do not continue to use the dryer if you hear
squeaking, grinding, rubbing or other unusual
noises. This could be a sign of mechanical
breakdown and lead to fire or serious injury.
Contact a qualified technician immediately.

1 Prepare load 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.
• Check for stains which may not have been removed
in washing. Repeat stain removal process and wash
again before drying. Dryer heat may permanently
set some stains.
• Place delicate or small items in a mesh bag.
• 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.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Cycle Selection, continued
Auto Dry Cycles
Auto Dry cycles take the guesswork out of selecting the
correct drying time for each load. Moisture sensing bars
at the back of the dryer drum sense the moisture level of
the load as it tumbles through the heated air. With Auto
Dry cycles, the load will automatically be dried at the
selected temperature to the desired dryness level.
Auto Dry cycles save time and energy and protect fabrics.
When the load has reached the selected dryness level, it will
continue to tumble during a cool down period. This helps
reduce wrinkling and makes items easier to handle during
unloading.
Drying time varies depending on size and dampness of
load and fabric type. If the load is too small or almost dry,
the moisture sensing bars may not detect enough moisture
to continue the cycle and the cycle may end after a few
minutes. If this occurs, select a Timed Dry cycle.
Room temperature and humidity, type of installation and
electrical voltage or gas pressure can also affect drying time.
Heavy (on select models)

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Cycle Options, continued
Wrinkle Release
Select Wrinkle Release if the dried load might not
be removed promptly at the end of the cycle. The dry
load will continue tumbling without heat to help reduce
wrinkling. When Chime is selected, a beep will be
heard periodically. The load may be removed any time
during Wrinkle Release.
Line Dry
Select this option to simulate hanging your laundry in
a summer breeze combined with the wrinkle-releasing
benefits of tumble action. Since drying times are
calculated with the dryer’s automatic moisture sensors
and heat is radically reduced or eliminated, cycle time
will be lengthened. As a result, depending on moisture
content of load, overall energy consumption decreases.

CARE AND CLEANING
WARNING
FIRE HAZARD
A clothes dryer produces combustible lint. The
dryer must be connected to an outdoors exhaust.
Regularly inspect the outdoor exhaust opening
and remove any accumulation of lint around the
opening and in the surrounding area.
WARNING
To reduce risk of fire or serious injury to persons or property,
comply with the basic warnings listed in the 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 the dryer
interior. Hazardous fumes or electrical shock could occur.
INSIDE
IMPORTANT
Clean the lint filter after every load.
• Clean the lint filter after every load. Lint build-up on the
filter restricts air flow, which causes longer drying times.
The filter is located at the bottom of the door opening. Remove by pulling straight up. Remove the lint and replace
the filter.
• Occasionally a waxy build-up may form on the lint filter
and/or moisture sensing bars from using dryer-added
fabric softener sheets. To remove this build-up, wash them
with warm, soapy water. Dry the filter thoroughly and
replace. Do not operate the dryer without the lint filter 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.
OUTSIDE
IMPORTANT
Do not store or place laundry products on top of
dryer at any time. They can damage the finish or
controls.
18
• 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 part bleach to 8 parts 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.
• When cleaning chrome parts use a window cleaner with
ammonia or mild soap and water.
• Before moving the dryer, place a strip of cardboard or thin
fiberboard under the front leveling legs to prevent damage
to the floor.
SOLUTIONS TO COMMON PROBLEMS
Common Drying Problems
Many drying problems involve poor cleaning results, poor soil and stain removal, residues of lint and scum, and fabric
damage. For satisfactory drying results, follow these suggestions provided by The Soap and Detergent Association.
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSES
SOLUTIONS
PREVENTIVE MEASURES
Greasy, oily
stains
• Fabric softener sheet.
• Rub fabric softener stains with
bar soap. Rinse and rewash.
• Add a few bath towels to small loads
for proper tumbling.
• Some “silk-like” fabrics should be air
dried.
• Use proper drying temperature.
• Place fabric softener sheet on top of
load before starting the dryer.
Lint
• Overloading.
• Overdrying causes static
electricity.
• Lint screen not clean when
cycle began.
• Lint is attached to “pills.”
• Reduce load size and rewash
using liquid fabric softener in the
final rinse.
• Or, add a fabric softener sheet
and tumble without heat.
• Use lint brush or roller to remove
lint.
• Do not overload dryer.
• Use fabric softener in washer or dryer
to reduce static electricity.
• Remove items when they are slightly
damp to avoid overdrying.
• Check that lint filter is clean and in
place.
Pilling
(Fibers break
off, ball up and
cling to fabric.)
• Overdrying.
• Use a lint brush or shaver to
remove pills.
• Use fabric softener to lubricate fibers.
• When ironing, use spray starch or
fabric finish on collars and cuffs.
• Turn items inside out to reduce abrasion.
Shrinking
• Temperature too high.
• Overdrying.
• Irreversible condition.
• Follow fabric care label directions.
• If shrinking is a concern, check load
often.
• Remove items while slightly damp and
hang or lay flat to complete drying.
• Block knits into shape.
Wrinkling
• Overloading.
• Leaving items in dryer after
cycle ends.
• Reduce load size and tumble at
medium or low heat for 5-10
minutes.
• Remove items immediately. Hang
or fold.
• Do not overload dryer.
• Remove items as soon as cycle ends.
