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.
Troubleshooting Tips
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.
PROPER INSTALLATION
This dryer must be properly installed and located in accordance with the Installation Instructions
before it is used. If you did not receive an Installation Instructions sheet, you can receive one by
visiting ge.com or by calling 800.GE.CARES (800.432.2737).
■ Properly ground dryer to conform with all
governing codes and ordinances. Follow details
in Installation Instructions.
Consumer Support
■ Install or store where it will not be exposed to
temperatures below freezing or exposed to
the weather.
■ Connect to a properly rated, protected and sized
power supply circuit to avoid electrical overload.
■ Remove all sharp packing items and dispose of
all shipping materials properly.
Exhaust/Ducting:
1 Gas dryers MUST be exhausted to the outside.
only rigid metal 4″ diameter ductwork
2 Use
inside the dryer cabinet. Use only rigid metal
or flexible metal 4″ diameter ductwork for

Safety Instructions
YOUR LAUNDRY AREA
■ Keep the area underneath and around your
appliances free of combustible materials
(lint, paper, rags, etc.), gasoline, chemicals
and other flammable vapors and liquids.
■ Keep all laundry aids (such as detergents,
bleaches, etc.) out of the reach of children,
preferably in a locked cabinet. Observe all
warnings on container labels to avoid injury.
■ Keep the floor around your appliances clean
and dry to reduce the possibility of slipping.
■ Never climb on or stand on the dryer top.
■ Close supervision is necessary if this appliance
is used by or near children. Do not allow
children to play on, with or inside this or
any other appliance.
Operating Instructions
WARNING!
WHEN USING YOUR DRYER
■ The laundry process can reduce the flame
retardancy of fabrics. To avoid such a result,
carefully follow the garment manufacturer’s
care instructions.
■ Clean the lint filter before each load to prevent
lint accumulation inside the dryer or in the
room. DO NOT OPERATE THE DRYER WITHOUT
THE LINT FILTER IN PLACE.
■ Do not dry articles containing rubber, plastic,
foam, or similar materials such as padded bras,
tennis shoes, galoshes, bath mats, rugs, bibs, baby
pants, plastic bags, pillows, etc., that may melt or
burn. Some rubber materials, when heated, can
under certain circumstances produce fire by
spontaneous combustion.
■ Do not wash or dry articles that have been
cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted
with combustible or explosive substances (such as
wax, oil, paint, gasoline, degreasers, dry-cleaning
solvents, kerosene, etc.). These substances give
off vapors that may ignite or explode. Do not add
these substances to the wash water. Do not use or
place these substances around your washer or
dryer during operation.
■ 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 clothes load to catch fire.
■ Garments labeled Dry Away from Heat or Do Not
Tumble Dry (such as life jackets containing Kapok)
must not be put in your dryer.
■ Do not dry fiberglass articles in your dryer.
Skin irritation could result from the remaining
particles that may be picked up by clothing
during subsequent dryer uses.
■ To minimize the possibility of electric shock,
unplug this appliance from the power supply
or disconnect the dryer at the household
distribution panel by removing the fuse or
switching off the circuit breaker before
attempting any maintenance or cleaning
(except the removal and cleaning of the lint
filter). NOTE: Turning the Cycle Selector knob
to an off position, or pressing PAUSE does NOT
disconnect the appliance from the power supply.
3
Consumer Support
■ Any article on which you have used a cleaning
solvent or that contains flammable materials
(such as cleaning cloths, mops, towels used in
beauty salons, restaurants or barber shops, etc.)
must not be placed in or near the dryer until
solvents or flammable materials have been
removed. There are many highly flammable
items used in homes such as acetone, denatured
alcohol, gasoline, kerosene, some household
cleaners, some spot removers, turpentines,
waxes, wax removers and products containing
petroleum distillates.
■ Do not store plastic, paper or clothing that may
burn or melt on top of the dryer during operation.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ Never reach into the dryer while the drum is
moving. Before loading, unloading or adding
clothes, wait until the drum has completely
stopped.
Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
WARNING!
WHEN USING YOUR DRYER (cont.)
■ Never attempt to operate this appliance
if it is damaged, malfunctioning, partially
disassembled, or has missing or broken parts,
including a damaged cord or plug.
Operating Instructions
■ The interior of the machine and the exhaust
duct connection inside the dryer should be
cleaned at least once a year by a qualified
technician. See the Loading and Using the Dryer
section.
■ If yours is a gas dryer, it is equipped with an
automatic electric ignition and does not have a
pilot light. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO LIGHT WITH A
MATCH. Burns may result from having your hand
in the vicinity of the burner when the automatic
ignition turns on.
■ You may wish to soften your laundered fabrics
or reduce the static electricity in them by using
a dryer-applied fabric softener or an anti-static
conditioner. We recommend you use either a
fabric softener in the wash cycle, according to
the manufacturer’s instructions for those
products, or try a dryer-added product for
which the manufacturer gives written assurance
on the package that their product can be safely
used in your dryer. Service or performance
problems caused by use of these products are
the responsibility of the manufacturers of those
products and are not covered under the warranty
to this appliance.
WHEN NOT USING YOUR DRYER
Troubleshooting Tips
■ Grasp the plug firmly when disconnecting this
appliance to avoid damage to the cord while
pulling. Place the cord away from traffic areas
so it will not be stepped on, tripped over or
subjected to damage.
■ Before discarding a dryer, or removing it from
service, remove the dryer door to prevent
children from hiding inside.
■ Do not tamper with controls.
■ Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of
this appliance or attempt any servicing unless
specifically recommended in this Owner’s Manual
or in published user-repair instructions that you
understand and have the skills to carry out.

Safety Instructions
Wrinkle Care
Use this option to minimize the wrinkles
in clothes. It provides approximately
15 minutes of no-heat tumbling after
the clothes are dry.
If WRINKLE CARE is not ON, the dryer will
stop once the timer reaches the WRINKLE
CARE mark on the cycle dial.
This option can only be used with the
COTTONS, EASY CARE and DELICATES
cycles. If you are using the CYCLE SIGNAL
and you select the WRINKLE CARE option,
a signal will sound at the end of the
drying time and several times during the
WRINKLE CARE cycle. This will remind you
that it is time to remove the clothes.
(appearance may vary)
This signal will sound just before the end
of the cycle to remind you to remove the
clothes. On some models, the signal
sound level can be adjusted.
NOTE:
■ Remove garments promptly at the sound
of the signal. Place clothes on hangers
so wrinkles won’t set in.
If you selected the WRINKLE CARE option,
the signal will sound at the end of the
drying time and will sound several times
during the WRINKLE CARE cycle. This will
remind you that it is time to remove
the clothes.
■ Use the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL especially
when drying fabrics like polyester knits
and permanent press. These fabrics should
be removed so wrinkles won’t set in.
Operating Instructions
End of Cycle Signal
Dryness Sensor Cycle (on some models)
This feature is only activated in the
COTTONS, EASY CARE and DELICATES cycles.
Troubleshooting Tips
Dryness
Sensor Cycle
The Dryness Sensor provides greater
drying accuracy than standard machines,
resulting in shorter dry times and better
clothes care. As the clothes tumble, they
touch a moisture sensor. The sensor will
stop the heating cycle as soon as the
clothes have reached the selected dryness.
Drum Lamp
Consumer Support
Before replacing the light bulb, be sure to
unplug the dryer power cord or disconnect
the dryer at the household distribution
panel by removing the fuse or switching off
the circuit breaker. Reach above dryer
opening from inside the drum. Remove the
bulb and replace with the same size bulb.
Drying Rack (on some models)
A handy drying rack may be used for
drying delicate items such as washable
sweaters.
NOTE:
■ The drying rack must be used with the
TIMED CYCLE.
Hook the rack over the lint filter so
the rack extends into the dryer drum.
■ Do not use this drying rack when there
are other clothes in the dryer.

Stainless Steel Drum (on some models)
The stainless steel used to make the
dryer drum provides the highest reliability
available in a GE dryer. If the dryer drum
should be scratched or dented during
normal use, the drum will not rust or

About loading and using the dryer.
ge.com
Safety Instructions
Always follow the fabric manufacturer’s care label when laundering.
Sorting and Loading Hints
As a general rule, if clothes are sorted properly
for the washer, they are sorted properly for
the dryer.
Do not add fabric softener sheets once the load
has become warm. They may cause fabric softener
stains. Bounce ® Fabric Conditioner Dryer Sheets
have been approved for use in all GE Dryers when
used in accordance with the manufacturer’s
instructions.
Do not overload. This wastes energy and causes
wrinkling.
Do not dry the following items: fiberglass items,
woolens, rubber-coated items, plastics, items with
plastic trim and foam-filled items.
The Exterior: Wipe or dust any spills or washing
compounds with a damp cloth. Dryer control
panel and finishes may be damaged by some
laundry pretreatment soil and stain remover
products. Apply these products away from the
dryer. The fabric may then be washed and dried
normally. Damage to your dryer caused by these
products is not covered by your warranty.
The Lint Filter: Clean the lint filter before each
use. Moisten your fingers and reach into the
filter opening. Run your fingers across the filter.
Have a qualified technician vacuum the lint
from the dryer once a year.
Stainless Steel: To clean stainless steel surfaces,
use a damp cloth with a mild, non-abrasive
cleaner suitable for stainless steel surfaces.
Remove the cleaner residue, and then dry
with a clean cloth.
The Exhaust Duct: Inspect and clean the exhaust
ducting at least once a year to prevent clogging.
A partially clogged exhaust can lengthen the
drying time.
Operating Instructions
Care and Cleaning of the Dryer
Follow these steps:
1
Turn off electrical supply by disconnecting
the plug from the wall socket.
The Exhaust Hood: Check from the outside that
the flaps of the hood move freely when operating.
Make sure that there is not wildlife (birds, insects,
etc.) nesting inside the duct or hood.

Problem
Possible Causes
What To Do
Clothes take too long
to dry
Improper sorting
• Separate heavy items from lightweight items (generally,
a well-sorted washer load is a well-sorted dryer load).
Large loads of heavy fabrics
(like beach towels)
• Large, heavy fabrics contain more moisture and take
longer to dry. Separate large, heavy fabrics into smaller
loads to speed drying time.
Controls improperly set
• Match control settings to the load you are drying.
Lint filter is full
• Clean lint filter before every load.
Improper or obstructed
ducting
• Check installation instructions for proper
ducting/venting.
• Make sure ducting is clean, free of kinks and
unobstructed.
• Check to see if outside wall damper operates easily.
• Check the Installation Instructions to make sure the
dryer venting is correct.
Blown fuses or tripped
circuit breaker
• Replace fuses or reset circuit breakers. Since most dryers
use 2 fuses/breakers, make sure both are operating.
Overloading/combining loads
• Do not put more than one washer load in the dryer at
a time.
Underloading
• If you are drying only one or two items, add a few items
to ensure proper tumbling.
Overdrying
• Select a shorter drying time.
• Remove items while they still hold a slight amount of
moisture. Select a LESS DRY or DAMP DRY setting.
Letting items sit in dryer
after cycle ends
•Remove items when cycle ends and fold or hang
immediately.
