For your safety, the information in this manual must be followed to minimize the risk of fire or explosion, electric shock, or to prevent
property damage, injury to persons, or death.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLATION
wWarning
To reduce the risk of injury to persons, follow all industry recommended safety procedures including the use of long sleeved gloves and
safety glasses. Failure to follow all of the safety warnings in this manual could result in property damage, injury to persons, or death.
Exhaust/Ducting:
• Gas dryers MUST be exhausted to the outside. Failure to follow
these instructions can result in fire or death.
• The dryer exhaust system must be exhausted to the outside of
the dwelling. If the dryer is not exhausted outdoors, some fine
lint and large amounts of moisture will be expelled into the
laundry area. An accumulation of lint in any area of the home can
create a health and fire hazard.
• Use only rigid metal or flexible metal 4-inch diameter
ductwork inside the dryer cabinet or for exhausting to the
outside. Use of plastic or other combustible ductwork can
cause a fire. Punctured ductwork can cause a fire if it collapses or
becomes otherwise restricted in use or during installation.
• Ductwork is not provided with the dryer, and you should
obtain the necessary ductwork locally. The end cap should
have hinged dampers to prevent backdraft when the dryer is
not in use. Failure to follow these instructions can result in fire or
death.
•T
he exhaust duct must be 4 inches (10.2 cm) in diameter with
no obstructions. The exhaust duct should be kept as short as
possible. Make sure to clean any old ducts before installing
your new dryer. Failure to follow these instructions can result in
fire or death.
•R
igid or semi-rigid metal ducting is recommended for use
between the dryer and the wall. In special installations
when it is impossible to make a connection with the above
recommendations, a UL-listed flexible metal transition duct
may be used between the dryer and wall connection only.
The use of this ducting will affect drying time. Failure to follow
these instructions can result in fire or death.
•D
O NOT use sheet metal screws or other fasteners which
extend into the duct that could catch lint and reduce the
efficiency of the exhaust system. Secure all joints with duct tape.
For complete details, follow the Installation Instructions. Failure to
follow these instructions can result in fire or death.

electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded.
Failure to follow these instructions can create an electric shock
hazard and/or a fire hazard.
• The dryer should always be plugged into its own individual
electrical outlet which has a voltage rating that matches
the rating plate. This provides sparkling performance and also
prevents overloading house wiring circuits which could cause a
fire hazard from overheated wires.
•N
ever unplug your dryer by pulling on the power cord. Always
grip plug firmly and pull straight out from the outlet. The
power cord can be damaged, resulting in a risk of fire and electric
shock.

Loading the dryer
wWarning
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when
using this appliance, follow basic precautions, including the
following:
• Check all pockets to make sure that they are empty. Items
such as clips, pens, coins, and keys can damage both your
dryer and your clothes. Flammable objects such as lighters
or matches could ignite, causing a fire. Failure to do so can
result in fire, explosion, or death.
• Never dry clothes that have been exposed to oil, gasoline,
or other flammable substances. Washing clothes will not
completely remove oil residues. Failure to obey this warning
can result in fire, explosion, or death.
NOTE
Loading tips
• Combine large and small items in a load.
• Damp clothes will expand as they dry. Do not overload the
dryer; clothes require room to tumble dry properly.
• Close zippers, hooks, and drawstrings to prevent these items
from snagging or tangling on other clothes.

long. This is helpful in preventing wrinkles when you are unable
to remove items from the dryer immediately.
NOTE
• If you will be on vacation or not using your dryer for an
extended period of time, you should turn off the water supply
to the dryer. This helps to avoid unintended flooding (due to
a water pressure surge) while you are away.

TROUBLESHOOTING
TROUBLESHOOTING
Before calling for service
Your dryer is equipped with an automatic error-monitoring system to detect and diagnose problems at an early stage. If your dryer does not
function properly or does not function at all, check the following before you call for service.
Problem
Possible Causes
Solutions
Dryer will not
turn on
• Power cord is not properly plugged in.
• House fuse is blown, circuit breaker has
tripped, or power outage has occurred.
• Make sure that the plug is plugged securely into a grounded outlet matching
the dryer’s rating plate.
• Reset circuit breaker or replace fuse. Do not increase fuse capacity. If the
problem is a circuit overload, have it corrected by a qualified electrician.
Dryer does not heat
• House fuse is blown, circuit breaker has
tripped, or power outage has occurred.
• Gas supply or service turned off
(gas models only).
•R
eset circuit breaker or replace fuse. Do not increase fuse capacity. If the
problem is a circuit overload, have it corrected by a qualified electrician.
•C
onfirm that the house gas shutoff and the dryer gas shutoff are both fully
open.
Greasy or dirty spots
on clothes
• Fabric softener used incorrectly.
• Clean and dirty clothes being dried
together.
• Confirm and follow the instructions provided with your fabric softener.
• Make sure to use your dryer to dry only clean items, because dirty items can
soil clean clothes placed in the same or subsequent loads.
• Stains on dried clothes are actually stains that were not removed during the
washing process.
Make sure that clothes are being completely cleaned according to the
instructions for your washer and detergent.
Display shows error
code tE1 or tE2
• Thermistor is malfunctioning.
• Turn off the dryer and call for service.
Lint on clothes
• Lint filter not cleaned properly.
•M
ake 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.
• S ome fabrics are lint producers (i.e., a fuzzy white cotton towel) and should
be dried separately from clothes that are lint trappers (i.e., a pair of black linen
pants).
• See the Excess static in clothes after drying section below.
• Divide larger loads into smaller loads for drying.
• Check pockets thoroughly before washing and drying clothes.
• Laundry not sorted properly.
• Excess static in clothes.
• Dryer is overloaded.
• Tissue, paper, etc., left in pockets.
Excess static in
clothes after drying
• Fabric softener not used or used incorrectly.
• Clothes dried too long (overdried).
• Drying synthetics, permanent press, or
synthetic blends.
• Use a fabric softener to reduce static electricity correctly. Do not use fabric
softeners or products to eliminate static unless recommended by the
manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
• Overdrying a load of laundry can cause a buildup of static electricity. Adjust
settings and use a shorter drying time, or use SENSOR DRY cycles.
• These materials can cause static buildup. Try using a fabric softener.
Clothes are wrinkled
• Clothes dried too long (overdried).
•O
verdrying a load of laundry can lead to wrinkled clothes. Try a shorter drying
time, and remove items while they still retain a slight amount of moisture.
•R
emove items from the dryer immediately at the end of the cycle. Use the
WRINKLE CARE option to continue tumbling clothes at the end of the cycle, for
up to 3 hours.
• Clothes left in dryer too long after cycle
ends.
Drying time is not
consistent
• Heat settings, load size, or dampness of
clothing is not consistent.
• The drying time for a load will vary depending on the heat setting, the type
of heat used (electric, natural gas, or LP gas), the size of the load, the type of
fabrics, the wetness of the clothes, and the condition of the exhaust ducts and
lint filter.
SPECIFICATIONS
33
Problem
Clothes take too
long to dry
Possible Causes
• Load is not properly sorted.
• Large load of heavy fabrics.
• Dryer controls are not set properly.
• Lint filter needs to be cleaned.
• Exhaust ducts blocked, dirty, or duct run is
too long.v
• House fuse is blown, circuit breaker has
tripped, or power outage has occurred.
• Dryer is overloaded.
• Dryer is underloaded.
Solutions
• Separate heavy items from lightweight items. Larger and heavier items take
longer to dry.
• Heavy fabrics take longer to dry because they tend to retain more moisture.
To help reduce and maintain more consistent drying times for large and heavy
fabrics, separate these items into smaller loads of a consistent size.
• Use the appropriate control settings for the type of load you are drying.
•M
ake 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.
• Confirm that the exhaust ductwork is properly configured and free of debris,
lint, and obstructions. Make sure that outside wall dampers can open properly
and are not blocked, jammed, or damaged.
• Reset circuit breaker or replace fuse. Do not increase fuse capacity. If the
problem is a circuit overload, have it corrected by a qualified electrician.
• Divide larger loads into smaller loads for drying.
• If you are drying a very small load, add a few extra items to ensure proper
tumbling action.
Clothes are shrinking
• Garment care instructions are not being
followed.
• To avoid shrinkage, please carefully follow the fabric care instructions for
your garment, because some fabrics will naturally shrink when washed. Other
fabrics can be washed but will shrink when dried in a dryer. Use a low or no
heat setting.
Garments still wrinkled
after Steam Fresh™
• Too many or too different types of garments
in dryer.
• Small loads of 1 to 5 items work best.
• Load fewer garments. Load similar-type garments.
There are no creases
left on garment after
Steam Fresh™
• The function of this cycle is to remove
wrinkles from fabric.
• Use an iron to make creases.
Odors remain in clothing
after STEAM FRESH™
• STEAM FRESH™ did not remove odor
completely.
• Fabrics containing strong odors should be washed in a normal cycle.
FLOW SENSETM
indicator shows four
bars during the drying
cycle
• Ductwork is too long or has too many turns/
restrictions.
• Significant blockage of the ductwork due to
lint buildup or debris.
• The appliance has detected a restriction in
the external dryer venting.
• Install a shorter or straighter duct run. See the Installation Instructions.
The display shows
“d90”, “d95”
• The duct work is about 90%-95% blocked.
(“d90” or “d95” error code displayed 2 hours
only)
• House exhaust system blocked.
• Do not use the dryer until the exhaust system has been cleaned and/or
repaired. Using the dryer with a severely restricted exhaust is dangerous and
could result in a fire or other property damage.
• Check the outside dryer vent while the dryer is operating to make sure there is
strong airflow.
• If the exhaust system is extremely long, have it repaired or rerouted.
• Keep the area around the dryer clean and free of clutter.
• Check vent hood for damage or lint clogging.
• Make sure the area around the vent hood is clear.
• Ductwork should be checked/cleaned soon.
Dryer can be used in this condition, but drying times may be longer.
• If exhaust restrictions are sensed by the FLOW SENSETM system, the indicator
will remain on for two hours after the end of the cycle. Opening the door or
pressing the POWER button will turn off the display.
