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.
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.

WARNING!
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.
 Keep the area around the exhaust opening
and adjacent surrounding areas free from the
accumulation of lint, dust and dirt.
 If you see water on the floor around the dryer, call
for service.
 Do not spray any type of aerosol into, on or near
dryer at any time.
WHEN USING YOUR DRYER
 Never reach into the dryer while the drum is
moving. Before loading, unloading or adding
clothes, wait until the drum has completely
stopped.
 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.) which 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.
 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.
4
 Do not store plastic, paper or clothing that may
burn or melt on top of the dryer during operation.
 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 building’s 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: Pressing Power, Start or Lock

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

Sorting and Loading Hints
As a general rule, if clothes are sorted properly for
the washer, they are sorted properly for the dryer.
Try also to sort items according to size.
For example, do not dry a sheet with socks or other
small items.
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.
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.
15
Loading and using the dryer.
Always follow the fabric manufacturer’s care label when laundering.
Care and Cleaning of the Dryer
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.
Pull out the lint filter.
Moisten your fingers and
remove the captured lint.
Once clean, slide the filter
back into position. Have a
qualified technician vacuum
the lint from the dryer once
a year.
NEVER OPERATE THE DRYER WITHOUT ITS FILTER
IN PLACE.
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 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
corrode. These surface blemishes will not affect the
function or durability of the drum.
Dryer Interior and Duct: The interior of the
appliance and exhaust duct should be cleaned
once a year by qualified service personnel.
16
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.
Follow these steps:
1 Turn off electrical supply by disconnecting the
plug from the wall socket.
2 Disconnect the duct from the dryer.
3 Vacuum the duct with the hose attachment
and reconnect the duct.
The Exhaust Hood: Check with a mirror that the
inside flaps of the hood move freely when operating.
Make sure that there is no wildlife (birds, insects, etc.)
nesting inside the duct or hood.
Venting the dryer.
www.GEAppliances.ca
For the best drying performance, the dryer needs to be properly vented. The dryer will use
more energy and run longer if it is not vented to the below specifications. Carefully follow
the details on Exhausting in the Installation Instructions.
 Use only rigid metal 4 diameter ductwork inside the dryer cabinet and use only UL
approved transition ducting between the dryer and the home duct.
 Do not use plastic or other combustible ductwork.
 Use the shortest length possible.
 Do not crush, kink or collapse the duct.
 Avoid resting the duct on sharp objects.
 Venting must conform to local building codes.

makes noise
Some shaking/noise is normal.
Dryer may be sitting unevenly
• Move dryer to an even floor space, or adjust leveling legs
as necessary until even.
Clothes take too long
to dry
Improper or obstructed ducting
• Check the Installation Instructions to make sure
the dryer venting is correct.
• Make sure ducting is clean, free of kinks and unobstructed.
• Check to see if outside wall damper operates easily.
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.
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.
Load consists of a mixture
of heavy and light fabrics
