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, personal injury, or death.

Installation and service must be performed by a qualified installer, service agency or the gas supplier.


1. Instructions to follow if the user smells gas: Contact your local gas supplier for information to be displayed.

2. Instructions concerning flammable materials as follows:


Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.

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.


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, or by calling 800.GE.CARES (800.432.2737).

■ Properly ground dryer to conform with all governing codes and ordinances. Follow details in the Installation Instructions section.

■ 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.

■ In fulfilling the specific needs of different commercial installations the purchaser of this dryer may wish to locate the coin box and controls in any of a number of locations.

The responsibility for the proper performance of this work lies solely with the purchaser.

It should be done by properly trained and qualified personnel, and in accordance with local code requirements.

■ Remove any accumulated time by manually rotating timing cam in the coin box counterclockwise until switch shuts off. Apply a slight additional counterclockwise pressure to further seat drive. Make certain not to turn cam past switch shutoff position. Otherwise, one increment of time will be gained. Switches are off when the plastic switch actuating arm (inner) is down and all 3 switch buttons are depressed.




This dryer MUST be exhausted to the outside.

Use only rigid metal 4

″ diameter ductwork inside the dryer cabinet. Use only rigid metal or flexible metal 4

″ diameter ductwork for exhausting to the outside. USE OF PLASTIC OR





■ Any coin box or similar device added to the dryer, either electrically or mechanically, should be properly grounded.

Follow details in the Installation Instructions section.







■ Keep the area underneath and around your appliances free of combustible materials, such as lint, paper, rags, chemicals, gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.

■ Keep the floor around your appliances clean and dry to reduce the possibility of slipping.

■ Keep area around the exhaust opening and surrounding areas free from the accumulation of lint, dust and dirt.

■ 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.

■ 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 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.

■ Never climb on or stand on the dryer top.

■ Do not install or store this appliance where it will be exposed to the weather.


■ Never reach into the dryer while the drum is moving. Before loading, unloading or adding clothes, wait until the drum has completely stopped.

Clean the lint filter before each load to prevent lint accumulation inside the dryer or in the room.



■ 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.

■ 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.

■ The laundry process can reduce the flame retardancy of fabrics. To avoid such a result, carefully follow the garment manufacturer’s care instructions.

■ Do not dry articles containing rubber, plastic 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 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 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 does NOT disconnect the appliance from the power supply.

■ Do not spray any type of aerosol into, on or near dryer at any time.

■ 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.


■ 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.

■ 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 Care and Cleaning section.

Do not use any type of spray cleaner when cleaning dryer interior. Hazardous fumes or electrical shock could occur.

■ 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.


■ 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.

■ 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.

■ Before discarding a dryer, or removing it from service, remove the dryer door to prevent children from hiding inside.

■ Do not tamper with controls.




Reversing the door.

Tools needed:

Standard #2

Phillips screwdriver

Tape-tipped putty knife


Open the door and remove the filler plugs opposite the hinges. With the door completely open, remove the bottom screw from each hinge on the dryer face. Insert these screws about halfway into the TOP holes, for each hinge, on the opposite side (where you removed the filler plugs).

Apply firm pressure to get the screw started in new holes.


Loosen top screw from each hinge on the dryer face halfway. With one hand holding the top of the door and the other hand holding the bottom, remove the door from the dryer by lifting it UP and OUT.


Rotate the door 180°. Insert it on the opposite side of the opening by moving the door IN and DOWN until the top hinge and the bottom hinge are resting on the top screws inserted in step 1.


Remove the remaining screws from the side of the opening from which the door was removed. With these screws secure each hinge at the bottom.

Tighten the two top screws of each hinge. Reinsert the plastic plugs on the side from which the door was removed.


Countdown display. (DCCD models only)

The countdown display shows the remaining operating time as well as the current drying cycle. The display board is configured for a 45-minute dry time at the factory to correspond with the 45-minute timer cam pre-installed in the coin box. If the timer cam is modified for another operating duration, the dip switches on the display board should be set as follows:

DRYING TIME (minutes)
















NOTE: This display does not accumulate time. See the following examples of display possibilities.










45 to 0, then blank

45 to 1, then 1 for next 45 min., then 0 and blank

99 for 21 minutes, then 98 to 0, then blank


Venting the dryer.

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. Use only rigid metal or flexible metal 4

″ diameter ductwork for exhausting to the outside.

■ 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.






Care and cleaning.

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.

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.

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:


Turn off electrical supply by disconnecting the plug from the wall socket.



Disconnect the duct from the dryer.

Vacuum the duct with the hose attachment and reconnect the duct.

The Exhaust Hood: Check from the outside that the flaps of the hood move freely when operating. Make sure that there is no wildlife (birds, insects, etc.) nesting inside the duct or hood.
