Operating Instructions 7

Getting Started

This manual covers many models and not all cycles, options, or features listed are available on every model. Console shown above for reference only. Your model may differ.

To operate your dryer, follow these basic steps:

1. Check and clean the lint screen. (See page 9.)

2. Load the dryer. (See page 9.)

4. Select desired settings and options. (See page

9, page 13, page 14 and pages 15-16.)

5. Start the dryer. (See page 9.)

3. Select the desired cycle. (See page 9, pages

10-12 and page 18.)

Normal Operating Sounds

You may or may not hear the following sounds from your new dryer:

A. WATER VALVE (Steam models only.) The fl ow 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 fl ow.

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 fl at spot on the edge of the roller. The noise should dissipate as the dryer operates and the fl at 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 fl ow 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 fl ow.

E

Operating Instructions

Operating Your Dryer

BEFORE USING YOUR DRYER

Read the important instructions in this section of the Use and Care Guide before operating your dryer.

WARNING

To reduce the risk of fi re, electric shock or injury to persons, read the IMPORTANT SAFETY

INSTRUCTIONS in this Use and Care Guide before operating your dryer.

OPERATING YOUR DRYER

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 fi nish. Close zippers; fasten hooks and Velcro

®

-like fasteners. Tie strings and sashes to prevent snagging and tangling.

2. Check that the lint fi lter is clean and

in place.

3. Load the dryer and close the door.

Load items loosely. The average wet load will fi ll the drum 1/3 to 1/2 full. Items need room to tumble freely for even drying and less wrinkling.

If desired, place a dryer fabric softener sheet on top of the load at the beginning of the cycle.

To save energy and time and avoid uneven drying and wrinkling, do not overload the dryer.

When drying large items, dry only two or three items at a time. Fill out the load with small and medium sized items.

For delicate or very small loads, add two or three similar items to improve tumbling action.

(Mesh bag not included.)

Operating Instructions

4. Select the appropriate cycle and settings for each load.

NOTE

Over-drying can cause wrinkles, shrinkage, lint, harshness and a build up of static electricity.

Turn the cycle selector knob in either direction to select the cycle desired. The estimated drying time for Auto Dry cycles or the actual drying time for Time Dry cycles will be displayed.

A suitable drying temperature, dryness level and options will automatically be indicated for the cycle selected. See the “Dryer Settings

Chart” for more details.

To change the drying temperature and dryness level, press the temperature and dryness buttons to scroll to the desired settings.

To select or delete an option, press the button for that option. The indicator will be illuminated when the option has been selected. The indicator will no longer be lighted when the option has been deleted.

NOTE

If a setting is not available for the cycle selected, the indicator will not light.

Adjustments made to a cycle will be remembered and recalled each time that cycle is selected in the future.

To return to factory settings, press the tem-

perature and dryness buttons at the same time and hold for 5 seconds.

5. Start the cycle.

Close the door and press start to begin the cycle. The dryer will not operate with the door open. To interrupt the cycle, press pause; press start to resume the cycle. Press cancel to stop the cycle.

If changes to the cycle, temperature, dryness level or options are attempted after the cycle starts, the lights will blink and a signal will beep.

To change the cycle once the cycle has begun, press cancel and select a new cycle. To change the temperature, dryness level or options once the cycle has begun, press pause and make the new selections.

A signal will sound at the end of the cycle if the chime option has been selected. When the cycle ends, remove the items promptly and hang or fold.

IMPORTANT

Clean the lint fi lter after every load.

CLEAN

FILTER

will be displayed at the end of the cycle to remind you to remove lint from the fi lter.

Operating Instructions

Cycle Selection

Turn the cycle selector in either direction to the cycle desired. The indicator for that cycle will be illuminated. Press on the cycle selector knob to extend it or return it fl ush to the console.

For best results

Follow the fabric care label instructions on items to be dried.

To change the cycle once it has begun, press the

cancel button before selecting a new cycle. Just turning the cycle selector knob to another selection will not change the cycle.

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, unheated, 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, then select the time dry cycle to dry such loads.

Room temperature and humidity, type of installation and electrical voltage or gas pressure can also affect drying time.

Care & Cleaning 19

WARNING

To reduce risk of fi re 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

Clean the lint fi lter after every load. Lint buildup on the fi lter restricts air fl ow, which causes longer drying times. The fi lter is located at the bottom of the door opening. Remove by pulling straight up. Remove the lint and replace the fi lter.

Occasionally a waxy build-up may form on the lint fi lter 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 fi lter thoroughly and replace. Do not operate the dryer without the lint fi lter 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 ineffi cient drying and possible fi re hazard.

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 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 fi berboard under the front leveling legs to prevent damage to the fl oor.

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.

IMPORTANT

Clean lint screen after every load.

IMPORTANT

Do not store or place laundry products on top of dryer at any time. They can damage the fi nish or controls.
