Frequently Answers and Questions

Can I use plastic or combustible ductwork to exhaust my dryer?
No, using plastic or combustible ductwork can result in fire.
What should I do if I smell gas near my dryer?
Do not attempt to light any appliance, do not touch any electrical switches, and do not use any phone in your building. Clear the area of all occupants and immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor's phone. If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.
What items should not be dried in the dryer?
Rubber, plastic, materials containing foam, padded shoes, tennis shoes, galoshes, bras, bath mats, rugs, bibs, baby pants, beauty salon towels, plastic bags, pillows, and articles that have been cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with a flammable substance such as wax, paint, oil, gasoline, cleaning solvents, or degreasers.
How often should I clean the lint filter?
Clean the lint filter before each load to prevent accumulation of lint inside the dryer or exhaust duct.
What should I do if the dryer is not working properly?
Turn the Cycle Selector knob to an OFF position and disconnect the dryer from the power supply. Do not attempt to repair the dryer yourself. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.
