Electrical Requirements
It is your responsibility
■
To contact a qualified electrical installer.
■
To be sure that the electrical connection is adequate and in
conformance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA
70-latest edition and all local codes and ordinances.
The National Electric Code requires a 4-wire supply
connection for homes built after 1996, dryer circuits involved
in remodeling after 1996, and all mobile home installations.
A copy of the above code standards can be obtained from:
National Fire Protection Association, One Batterymarch Park,
Quincy, MA 02269.
■
To supply the required 3 or 4 wire, single phase, 120/240 volt,
60 Hz., AC only electrical supply (or 3 or 4 wire, 120/208 volt
electrical supply, if specified on the serial/rating plate) on a
separate 30-amp circuit, fused on both sides of the line. A
time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended. Connect
to an individual branch circuit. Do not have a fuse in the
neutral or grounding circuit.
■
Do not use an extension cord.
■
If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrician determine that the
ground path is adequate.
Electrical Connection
To properly install your dryer, you must determine the type of
electrical connection you will be using and follow the instructions
provided for it here.
■ This dryer is manufactured ready to install with a 3-wire
electrical supply connection. The neutral ground wire is
permanently connected to the neutral conductor (white wire)
within the dryer. If the dryer is installed with a 4-wire electrical
supply connection, the neutral ground wire must be removed
from the external ground conductor screw (green screw), and
secured under the neutral terminal (center or white wire) of
the terminal block. When the neutral ground wire is secured
under the neutral terminal (center or white wire) of the
terminal block, the dryer cabinet is isolated from the neutral
conductor.
■
If local codes do not permit the connection of a neutral
ground wire to the neutral wire, see “Optional 3-wire
connection” section.
■
A 4-wire power supply connection must be used when the
appliance is installed in a location where grounding through
the neutral conductor is prohibited. Grounding through the
neutral is prohibited for (1) new branch-circuit installations,
(2) mobile homes, (3) recreational vehicles, and (4) areas
where local codes prohibit grounding through the neutral
conductors.
If using a power supply cord:
Use a UL listed power supply cord kit marked for use with
clothes dryers. The kit should contain:
■ A UL listed 30-amp power supply cord, rated
120/240 volt minimum. The cord should be type SRD or
SRDT and be at least 4 ft (1.22 m) long. The wires that
connect to the dryer must end in ring terminals or spade
terminals with upturned ends.
■
A UL listed strain relief.
If your outlet looks like this:
4-wire receptacle (14-30R)
Then choose a 4-wire power supply cord with ring or spade
terminals and UL listed strain relief. The 4-wire power supply
cord, at least 4 ft (1.22 m) long, must have four 10-gauge copper
wires and match a 4-wire receptacle of NEMA Type
14-30R. The ground wire (ground conductor) may be either green
or bare. The neutral conductor must be identified by a white
cover.
If your outlet looks like this:
3-wire receptacle (10-30R)
Then choose a 3-wire power supply cord with ring or spade
terminals and UL listed strain relief. The 3-wire power supply
cord, at least 4 ft (1.22 m) long, must have three 10-gauge copper
wires and match a 3-wire receptacle of NEMA Type 10-30R.
If connecting by direct wire:
Power supply cable must match power supply (4-wire or 3-wire)
and be:
■ Flexible armored cable or nonmetallic sheathed copper cable
(with ground wire), protected with flexible metallic conduit. All
current-carrying wires must be insulated.
■
10-gauge solid copper wire (do not use aluminum).
■
At least 5 ft (1.52 m) long.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
■
For a grounded, cord-connected dryer:
This dryer must be grounded. In the event of malfunction or
breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock
by providing a path of least resistance for electric current.
This dryer uses a cord having an equipment-grounding
conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged
into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
■
For a permanently connected dryer:
This dryer must be connected to a grounded metal,
permanent wiring system, or an equipment-grounding
conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and
connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on
the dryer.
WARNING: Improper connection of the equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or service representative
or personnel if you are in doubt as to whether the dryer is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug on the power
supply cord: if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet
installed by a qualified electrician.

Drying and Cycle Tips
Status Lights
Select the correct cycle and dryness level or temperature for your
load. If an Auto Cycle is running, the display shows the estimated
cycle time, which is determined by your dryer automatically
sensing the dryness level of your load. If a Timed Cycle is
running, the display shows the exact number of minutes
remaining in the cycle.
Cool Down tumbles the load without heat during the last few
minutes of all cycles. Cool Down makes the loads easier to
handle and reduces wrinkling. The length of the Cool Down
depends on the load size and dryness level.
Follow the progress of your dryer with the drying Status indicator
lights.
Drying tips
■
Follow care label directions when they are available.
■
If desired, add a fabric softener sheet. Follow package
instructions.
■
To reduce wrinkling, remove the load from the dryer as soon
as tumbling stops. This is especially important for permanent
press, knits, and synthetic fabrics.
■
Avoid drying heavy work clothes together with lighter fabrics.
This could cause overdrying of lighter fabrics and lead to
increased shrinkage or wrinkling.
Cycle tips
■
Dry most loads using the preset cycle settings.
■
Refer to the Auto Cycles or Timed Cycles Preset Settings
chart (in the “Cycles” section) for a guide to drying various
loads.

DRYER CARE
As needed cleaning
Cleaning the Dryer Location
Keep dryer area clear and free from items that would obstruct the
flow of combustion and ventilation air.
WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Laundry detergent and fabric softener residue can build up on the
lint screen. This buildup can cause longer drying times for your
clothes, or cause the dryer to stop before your load is completely
dry. The screen is probably clogged if lint falls off while the screen
is in the dryer.
Clean the lint screen with a nylon brush every 6 months, or more
frequently, if it becomes clogged due to a residue buildup.
To wash
1. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers.
2. Wet both sides of lint screen with hot water.
3. Wet a nylon brush with hot water and liquid detergent. Scrub
lint screen with the brush to remove residue buildup.
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from dryer.
Place dryer at least 18 inches (46 cm) above the floor
for a garage installation.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Cleaning the Lint Screen
Every load cleaning
The lint screen is located in the door opening of the dryer. The
control panel has an indicator light to remind you to clean the lint
screen before each load. A screen blocked by lint can increase
drying time.
To clean
1. Pull the lint screen straight up. Roll lint off the screen with
your fingers. Do not rinse or wash screen to remove lint. Wet
lint is hard to remove.
2. Push the lint screen firmly back into place.
IMPORTANT:
■ Do not run the dryer with the lint screen loose, damaged,
blocked, or missing. Doing so can cause overheating and
damage to both the dryer and fabrics.
■
Some towels made of synthetic fibers and natural fibers
(polyester and cotton blends) may shed more lint than other
towels, causing your dryer’s lint screen to fill up faster. Be
sure to remove lint from the lint screen before and after drying
new towels.
■
If lint falls off the screen into the dryer during removal, check
the exhaust hood and remove the lint. See “Venting
Requirements.”
26
4. Rinse screen with hot water.
5. Thoroughly dry lint screen with a clean towel. Replace screen
in dryer.
Cleaning the Dryer Interior
To clean dryer drum
1. Make a paste with powdered laundry detergent and very
warm water.
2. Apply paste to a soft cloth.
OR
Apply a liquid, nonflammable household cleaner to the
stained area and rub with a soft cloth until all excess dye and
stains are removed.
3. Wipe drum thoroughly with a damp cloth.
4. Tumble a load of clean cloths or towels to dry drum.
NOTE: Garments that contain unstable dyes, such as denim blue
jeans or brightly colored cotton items, may discolor the dryer
interior. These stains are not harmful to your dryer and will not
stain future loads of clothes. Dry unstable dye items inside out to
prevent dye transfer.
Moving care
Removing Accumulated Lint
From Inside the Dryer Cabinet
Lint should be removed every 2 years, or more often, depending
on dryer usage. Cleaning should be done by a qualified person.
For power supply cord-connected dryers:
1. Unplug the power supply cord.
2. Make sure leveling legs are secure in dryer base.
3. Use masking tape to secure dryer door.
From the Exhaust Vent
Lint should be removed every 2 years, or more often, depending
on dryer usage.

Has a household fuse blown, or has a circuit breaker
tripped?
There may be 2 fuses or circuit breakers for the dryer. Check
to make sure both fuses are intact and tight, or that both
circuit breakers have not tripped. Replace the fuse or reset
the circuit breaker. If the problem continues, call an
electrician.
■
■
Is the correct power supply available?
Electric dryers require 240-volt power supply. Check with a
qualified electrician.
■
Was a regular fuse used?
Use a time-delay fuse.
■
Is the dryer door firmly closed?
■
Was the Start button firmly pressed?
Press and hold for 1 second.
Clothes are not drying satisfactorily, drying times are too
long, or load is too hot
■

Do not use a plastic vent.
Do not use a metal foil vent.
No heat
Has a household fuse blown, or has a circuit breaker
tripped?
The drum may be turning, but you may not have heat. Electric
dryers use 2 fuses or circuit breakers. Replace the fuse or
reset the circuit breaker. If the problem continues, call an
electrician.
■
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death
or fire.
■
Is the exhaust vent or outside exhaust hood clogged with
lint, restricting air movement?
Run the dryer for 5-10 minutes. Hold your hand under the
outside exhaust hood to check air movement. If you do not
feel air movement, clean exhaust system of lint or replace
exhaust vent with heavy metal or flexible metal vent. See the
Installation Instructions.
■
Are fabric softener sheets blocking the grille?
Use only one fabric softener sheet, and use it only once.
■
Is the exhaust vent the correct length?
Check that the exhaust vent is not too long or has too many
turns. Long venting will increase drying times. See the
Installation Instructions.
■
Is the exhaust vent diameter the correct size?
Use 4" (10.2 cm) diameter vent material.
Unusual sounds
■
Has the dryer had a period of non-use?
If the dryer hasn’t been used for a while, there may be a
