To reduce the risk of fire or explosion:
WARNING
•
•
Do not dry items that have been previously cleaned, washed, soaked, or spotted with
gasoline, dry cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances. They
emit vapors that could ignite or explode. Any material that has been in contact with a
cleaning solvent or flammable liquids or solids should not be placed in the dryer until all
traces of these flammable liquids or solids and their fumes have been removed.
There are many highly flammable items used in homes, such as acetone, denatured
alcohol, gasoline, kerosene, some liquid household cleaners, some spot removers,
turpentine, waxes, and wax removers
Items containing foam rubber (may be labeled latex foam) or similarly textured rubberlike materials must not be dried on a heat setting. Heated foam rubber materials can,
under certain circumstances, produce fire by spontaneous combustion.
Do not allow children or pets to play on, in, or in front of the appliance. Close supervision is

The interior of the dryer and exhaust duct should be cleaned periodically by qualified service
personnel.
This appliance must be properly grounded. Never plug the power cord into a receptacle
that is not grounded adequately and in accordance with local and national codes. See
installation instructions for grounding this appliance.
Do not sit on top of the dryer.
Because of continuing product improvements, Samsung reserves the right to change
specifications without notice. For complete details, see the Installation Instructions
packed with your product before selecting cabinetry, making cutouts, or beginning
installation.
WARNING
Ensure pockets are free from small irregularly shaped hard objects, foreign material, etc. ie.
coins, knives, pins, etc. These objects could damage your dryer.
Do not wash clothing with large buckles, buttons, or other heavy metal or solid things.
Gas leaks may occur in your system, resulting in a dangerous situation.
WARNING
Gas leaks may not be detected by smell alone.
Gas suppliers recommend you purchase and install a UL-approved gas detector.
Install and use in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Do not place items in your dryer that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable oil or
cooking oil. Even after being washed, these items may contain significant amounts of these
oils.
Residual oil on clothing can ignite spontaneoulsy. The potential for spontaneous
combustion increases when items containing vegetable oil or cooking oil are exposed to
heat. Heat sources such as your dryer can warm these items, allowing an oxidation reaction
in the oil to occur. Oxidation creates heat. If this heat cannot escape, the items can become
hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking, or storing these kinds of items may prevent heat
from escaping and can create a fire hazard.
All washed and unwashed fabrics that contain vegetable oil or cooking oil can be
dangerous. Washing these items in hot water with extra detergent will reduce, but not
eliminate, the hazard. Always use the Cool Down cycle for these items to reduce their
temperature. Never remove these items from the dryer hot or interrupt the drying cycle until
the items have run through the Cool Down cycle. Never pile or stack these items when they
are hot.
CALIFORNIA SAFE DRINKING WATER AND TOXIC ENFORCEMENT ACT
This act requires the governor of California to publish a list of substances known to the state
to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm and requires businesses to warn
customers of potential exposure to such substances.
Gas appliances can cause minor exposure to four of these substances, namely benzene, carbon
monoxide, formaldehyde, and soot, caused primarily by the incomplete combustion of natural
gas or LP fuels.
Properly adjusted dryers will minimize incomplete combustion. Exposure to these substances
can be minimized further by properly venting the dryer to the outdoors.

DUCTING REQUIREMENTS
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Use a 4-inch (10.2 cm) diameter rigid aluminum or rigid galvanized steel duct.
Do not use a smaller duct.
Ducts larger than 4 inches (10.2 cm) in diameter can result in increased lint accumulation.
Lint accumulation should be cleaned regularly.
If a flexible metal duct must be used, use the type with a stiff sheet metal wall. Do not use a flexible duct
with a thin foil wall. Serious blockage can result if the flexible metal duct is bent too sharply.
Never install any type of flexible duct in walls, ceilings, or other concealed spaces.
Only a rigid or flexible metal duct should be used for exhausting.
Keep the exhaust duct as straight and short as possible.
Secure joints with duct tape. Do not use screws.
DO NOT EXHAUST DRYER INTO ANY WALL, CEILING, CRAWL SPACE, OR CONCEALED SPACE OF
A BUILDING, GAS VENT, OR ANY OTHER COMMON DUCT OR CHIMNEY.
THIS COULD CREATE A FIRE HAZARD FROM LINT EXPELLED BY THE DRYER.
A plastic flexible duct can kink, sag, be punctured, reduce airflow, extend drying times, and affect dryer
operation.
Exhaust systems longer than recommended can extend drying times, affect machine operation, and
may collect lint.
The exhaust duct should end with an exhaust hood with a swing-out damper to prevent back drafts and
entry of wildlife. Never use an exhaust hood with a magnetic damper.
The hood should have at least 12 inches (30.5 cm) of clearance between the bottom of the hood and
the ground or other obstruction. The hood opening should point down.
Never install a screen over the exhaust outlet.
To avoid lint buildup, do not exhaust the dryer directly into a window well. Do not exhaust under a house
or porch.
If exhaust ductwork must run through an unheated area, the duct should be insulated and slope slightly
down towards the exhaust hood to reduce condensation and lint buildup.
Inspect and clean the interior of the exhaust system at least once a year. Unplug the power cord before
cleaning.
Check frequently to be sure the exhaust hood damper opens and closes freely.
Check once per month, and clean at least one time per year. Note: If clothes are not getting dry, then
check ducting for obstructions.

To select a cycle, rotate the Cycle Selector dial to the desired cycle.
The indicator light by the cycle name will illuminate. The Normal, Heavy Duty,
Towels, Perm Press, Delicates and Sanitize cycles are Sensor Dry cycles.
Sensor Dry automatically senses the moisture in the load and shuts the dryer off
when the selected dryness level (very dry to damp dry) is reached.
Normal – Use this cycle to dry loads such as cotton, underwear, and linen.
Heavy Duty – Use this cycle to get high heat for heavy fabrics such as jeans,
corduroys, or work clothes.
Perm Press – Dry wrinkle-free cottons, synthetic fabrics, knits, and permanent
press fabrics automatically. The cycle minimizes wrinkling by providing a longer
unheated cool-down period at the end of the cycle.
Delicates – The Delicates cycle is designed to dry heat-sensitive items at a low
drying temperature.
Sanitize - This course allows you to sanitize garments by permeating high
temperature heat deep into the fabric during the drying cycle. Use this course to
keep your bedding and curtains clean through sanitization.
Time Dry – Time Dry allows you to select the desired cycle time in minutes.
Turn the Cycle Selector dial to Time Dry, then press the Adjust Time up arrow to
set the drying time.
Press the arrow repeatedly to scroll through the time settings.
Quick Dry - Provides a 30 minute drying cycle.
Refresh – This cycle is best for smoothing out wrinkles and reducing odors from
loads consisting of one to four dry items. In this cycle a small amount of water is
sprayed into the dryer drum after several minutes of tumbling with heat.
Wrinkle Care – This cycle will release wrinkles from items that have been left in
the dryer too long. In this cycle a small amount of water is sprayed into the dryer
drum after several minutes of tumbling with heat.

CLEAN THE LINT FILTER
•
•
•
After each load.
To shorten drying time.
To operate more energy efficiently.
Cleaning the Lint filter
1. Pull the case-filter out of the dryer.
2. Scrape the dust from the top part of the filter using your fingers.
3. Open the bottom cover and scrape the dust in the same way.
4. Shake off the dust, close the cover and install it in its place.
Do not operate your dryer without the lint filter in place.
LOAD THE DRYER PROPERLY
•
•
•
•
Place only one washload in your dryer at a time.
Mixed loads of heavy and lightweight fabrics will dry differently, which may result in lightweight fabrics
being dry while heavy fabrics remain damp at the end of a drying cycle.
Add one or more similar items to your dryer when only one or two articles of clothing need drying.
This improves the tumbling action and drying efficiency.
Overloading restricts tumbling action, resulting in uneven drying as well as excessive wrinkling of some
fabrics.
GETTING STARTED
1.
2.

05 Troubleshooting
PROBLEM
Check the load for objects such as coins, loose buttons, nails, etc.
Remove promptly.
It is normal to hear the dryer gas valve or heating element cycle on
and off during the drying cycle.
Be sure the dryer is leveled properly as outlined in the installation
instruction.
It is normal for the dryer to hum due to the high velocity of air moving
through the dryer drum and exhaust system.
Seams, pockets, and other similarly heavy areas may not be
completely dry when the rest of the load has reached the selected
dryness level. This is normal. Select the Very Dry setting if desired.
If one heavy item is dried with a lightweight load, such as one towel
with sheets, it is possible that the heavy item will not be completely
dry when the rest of the load has reached the selected dryness level.
Sort heavy items from lightweight items for best drying results.
Household odors from painting, varnishing, strong cleaners, etc.
may enter the dryer with the surrounding room air. This is normal as
the dryer draws the air from the room, heats it, pulls it through the
tumbler, and exhausts it outside.
When these odors linger in the air, ventilate the room completely
before using the dryer.

Dryer load is too large. Remove some items and restart the dryer.
Make sure the lint filter is cleaned before every load. With some loads
that produce high amounts of lint, it may be necessary to clean the
filter during the cycle.
Some fabrics are lint producers (for example, a fuzzy white cotton
towel)and they should be dried separately from clothes that are lint
trappers(for example, a pair of black linen pants)
Divide larger loads into smaller loads for drying
Check pockets thoroughly before washing and drying clothes.
Small loads of 1 to 4 items work best.
Load fewer garments.Load similar-type garments.
Odors remain in clothing
