Sort clothes by weight so you won’t have to run an extra cycle for
one or two heavier, slower-drying items.
Do not overload your dryer. For efficient drying, clothes need
to tumble freely.
Remove garments promptly at the end of the drying cycle and place
on hangers.
Dry your clothes in consecutive loads. Using a “warm” dryer
will save energy.
Clean the dryer lint filter each time you dry.
Clean the dryer exhaust ducting at least once a year. A partially clogged
exhaust can lengthen drying time.

HOW TO OPEMTE YOUR DRYER
Features and appearances may vary slightly
WARNING-To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using your
appliance, read the IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS before operating this appliance.

J
I
Check the Lint Filter
Clean the lint filter each time the dryer is used. Always be sure the lint filter
is in place. Don’t use the dryer without it. See Care and Cleaning section.
Sort and Load the Clothes
Good sorting for the dryer begins at the washer. Generally, if clothes are
sorted correctly for washing, they’re sorted correctly for drying. See the
How to Sort the Clothes section. If you do mix various types of fabrics in
your load, set the controls for the lighter-weight fabrics and remove when
dry. Reset controls for the remaining heavier fabrics.
Set the Controls
S= the Suggested Fabric and Drying Selections guide.
~ Cycle Selector.
Turn the Cycle Selector knob to ON. The selector
may be turned in either direction.
@ Start Knob.
Turn the Start knob to start the dryer. (Opening
the door during operation stops the dryer. To
restart, close the door and turn the Start knob.)
NOTE: Drying times will vary according to the
type of heat used (electric, natural gas or LP gas),
size of load, types of fabrics, wetness of clothes,
and condition of exhaust ducts.
Polyester Knik & Permanent Press Drying Tips
●
DO NOT OVERLOAD—
Garments being dried or
dewrinkled should tumble freely.
6
●
REMOVE CLOTHES
PROMPTLY—To help prevent
wrinkling, remove clothes from
the dryer promptly at the end of
the drying cycles.
●
PLACE ON HANGERS—
Permanent press and polyester
knit garments look best if placed
on hangers after drying.
HOW TO SORT CLOT~S
Sort by Surface Texture
LINT PRODUCERS—such as terry toweling and
chenille—give up lint.
LINT COLLECTORS—such as man-made fibers and
napped fabrics like velveteen and corduroy—attract
lint. These must be dried separately.
Separate
Sort by Fabric
In addition to
sorting to reduce
lint collection, we
recommend that you
wash fabrics of similar
construction together
whenever possible.
