WARNING - RISK OF FIRE
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons when using this dryer, comply with
the basic warnings listed below. Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious
personal injuries.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don’t follow these Important Safety Instructions:
PREVENT FIRE
● Do not dry items that have been previously
cleaned in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, cleaning solvents, kerosene, waxes, or
other flammable or explosive substances. Do
not store these items on or near the dryer.
These substances give off vapors that could
ignite or explode.
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.
● Do not place items exposed to cooking oils
in your dryer. Items contaminated with cooking oils may contribute to a chemical reaction
that could cause a load to catch fire.
● Do not operate the dryer if the lint screen is
blocked, damaged or missing. Fire hazard,
overheating and damage to fabrics can
occur.
● Do not dry articles containing rubber, plastic
or similar materials such as bras, galoshes,
bath mats, rugs, bibs, baby pants, plastic
bags and pillows that may melt or burn. Some
rubber materials, when heated, can under
certain circumstances produce fire by spontaneous combustion.
● Do not obstruct the flow of ventilating air.
Do not stack or place laundry or throw rugs
against the front or back of the dryer.
● Clean the lint screen before or after each load.
The interior of the dryer, lint screen housing and
exhaust duct should be cleaned approximately
every 18 months by qualified service personnel.
An excessive amount of lint build-up in these
areas could result in inefficient drying and possible fire. See Care and Cleaning.
● Do not spray any type of aerosol into, on or
near dryer at any time.
● Do not use fabric softeners or products to
eliminate static unless recommended by the
manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
● Do not continue to use the dryer if you hear
squeaking, grinding, rubbing or other unusual
noises. This could be a sign of mechanical
breakdown and lead to fire or serious injury.
Contact a qualified technician immediately.
● Failure to comply with these warnings could
result in fire, explosion, serious bodily injury
and/or damage to the dryer.
Safety
Important Safety Instructions, continued
PROTECT CHILDREN
● Do not allow children to play on or in the
dryer. Close supervision of children is necessary when the dryer is used near children. As
children grow, teach them the proper, safe use
of all appliances.
● Destroy the carton, plastic bag and other
packing materials after the dryer is unpacked.
Children might use them for play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads or plastic sheets
can become airtight chambers.
● Keep laundry products out of children’s reach.
To prevent personal injury, observe all warnings on product labels.
● Before the dryer is removed from service or
discarded, remove the dryer door to prevent
accidental entrapment.
● Failure to comply with these warnings could
result in serious personal injuries.
PREVENT INJURY
● To prevent shock hazard and assure stability
during operation, the dryer must be installed
and electrically grounded by a qualified
service person in accordance with local
codes. Installation instructions are packed in
the dryer for the installer’s reference. Refer to
Installation Instructions for detailed grounding procedures. If the dryer is moved to a new
location, have it checked and reinstalled by a
qualified service person.
● To prevent personal injury or damage to
the dryer, the electrical power cord of a
gas dryer must be plugged into a properly
grounded and polarized 3-prong outlet. The
third grounding prong must never be removed.
Never ground the dryer to a gas pipe. Do not
use an extension cord or an adaptor plug.
● ALWAYS disconnect the dryer from the electrical supply before attempting any service or
cleaning. Failure to do so can result in electrical shock or injury.
● Do not use any type spray cleanser when
cleaning dryer interior. Hazardous fumes or
electrical shock could occur.
● To prevent injury, do not reach into the dryer
if the drum is moving. Wait until the dryer has
stopped completely before reaching into the
drum.
PREVENT INJURY AND DAMAGE TO THE
DRYER
● All repairs and servicing must be performed
by an authorized servicer unless specifically
recommended in this Use & Care Guide. Use
only authorized factory parts.
● Do not tamper with controls.
● Do not sit on, step on or stand on the dryer.
Do not rest heavy loads on top. The dryer is
not meant to support weight.
● Do not install or store the dryer where it will be
exposed to the weather.
● Thermal limiter switches automatically turn off
the motor in the unlikely event of an overheated situation. A service technician must replace
the thermal limiter switch(es) after correcting
the fault.
● Failure to comply with these warnings could
result in serious personal injuries.

Operating Instructions
Normal Operating Sounds
You may or may not hear the following sounds
from your new dryer:
A. WATER VALVE (Steam models only.) The flow
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 flow.
D. GAS VALVE (Gas models only.) The flow 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
flow.
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 flat spot on the
edge of the roller. The noise should dissipate
as the dryer operates and the flat spots
smooth out.
E. GAS BURNER (Gas models only.) When the
burner is operating, there may be sounds
generated as the air flow mixes with the gas
flame. This noise is normal and will only occur
when the gas is ignited in the combustion
tube.
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.

fasteners. Tie strings and sashes to prevent
snagging and tangling.
Read the important instructions in this section
of the Use and Care Guide before operating
your dryer.
IMPORTANT
Prior to using the sanitize feature (if available)
on your dryer for the first time, internal dryer
parts must be conditioned to ensure a complete sanitization of your laundry.
2.
Check that the lint filter is clean and in
place.
1. Place a wet load of towels or other durable
fabrics suitable for high temperatures into
the dryer.
2. Set the dryer for the 75 minute time dry cycle
and adjust the temperature to sanitize.
3. Once the cycle is complete, remove the load.
Your dryer is now conditioned and ready to
sanitize your laundry. It is not necessary to
repeat internal dryer part conditioning.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, 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.
(Mesh bag not included.)
CAUTION
Do not operate dryer without lint filter in place.
3.
Load the dryer and close the door.
● Load items loosely. The average wet load
will fill 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 larger items to improve tumbling
action.

Operating Instructions
Auto Dry Cycles
Time Dry Cycles
Auto Dry cycles take the guesswork out of selecting the correct drying time for each load. Moisture sensing bars in the front 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.
time dry
To manually select the drying time for any load,
scroll the cycle selector indicator to time dry.
Drying times from 30 to 60 minutes or 75 minutes
(on select models) can be selected by pressing
the dry time button. Drying time will be displayed. Select any drying temperature. Because
this is not an Auto Dry cycle, you will not be
able to select a 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.
NOTE
Initial cycle times for Auto Dry Cycles are only
estimates. Actual drying time may be longer or
shorter than displayed time.
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
WARNING
To reduce risk of fire 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 drum 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.
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.
Inside
● Clean the lint filter after every load. Lint buildup on the filter restricts air flow, which causes
longer drying times. The filter is located at
the bottom of the door opening. Remove by
pulling straight up. Remove the lint and replace
the filter.
● Occasionally a waxy build-up may form on
the lint filter 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 filter thoroughly and
replace. Do not operate the dryer without the
lint filter 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 a qualified servicer should
clean the dryer cabinet interior, lint screen
housing and exhaust duct. These areas can
collect lint and dust over time. An excessive
amount of lint build-up could result in inefficient
drying and possible fire hazard.
IMPORTANT
Clean lint screen after every load.
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 fiberboard under the front
leveling legs to prevent damage to the floor.
IMPORTANT
Do not store or place laundry products on top
of dryer at any time. They can damage the finish
or controls.
Solutions to Common Problems
Common Drying Problems
Many drying problems involve poor cleaning results, poor soil and stain removal, residues of lint and
scum, and fabric damage. For satisfactory drying results, follow these suggestions provided by The
Soap and Detergent Association.

stains
• Fabric softener sheet.
• Rub fabric softener stains
with bar soap. Rinse and
rewash.
• Add a few bath towels
to small loads for proper
tumbling.
• Some “silk-like” fabrics
should be air dried.
• Use proper drying temperature.
• Place fabric softener sheet
on top of load before
starting the dryer.
Lint
• Overloading.
• Overdrying causes static
electricity.
• Lint screen not clean
when cycle began.
• Lint is attached to “pills.”
• Reduce load size and
rewash using liquid fabric
softener in the final rinse.
• Or, add a fabric softener
sheet and tumble without
heat.
• Use lint brush or roller to
remove lint.
• Do not overload dryer.
• Use fabric softener in
washer or dryer to reduce
static electricity.
• Remove items when they
are slightly damp to avoid
overdrying.
• Check that lint filter is clean
and in place.
Pilling

off, ball up and
cling to fabric.)
• Overdrying.
• Use a lint brush or shaver
to remove pills.
• Use fabric softener to
lubricate fibers.
• When ironing, use spray
starch or fabric finish on
collars and cuffs.
• Turn items inside out to
reduce abrasion.
Shrinking
• Temperature too high.
• Overdrying.
• Irreversible condition.
• Follow fabric care label
directions.
• If shrinking is a concern,
check load often.
• Remove items while slightly
damp and hang or lay flat
to complete drying.
• Block knits into shape.
Wrinkling
• Overloading.
• Leaving items in dryer
after cycle ends.
