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 the floor around gour appliances clean
and dry to reduce the possibilitg of slipping.
• 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.
Close supervision is necessary if this appliance
is used near children. Do not allow children to play
on, with or inside this or ang other appliance.
WARNING!
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.
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 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 gour 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 gou have used a cleaning
solvent or that contains flammable materials (such
as cleaning cloths, mops, towels used in beautg
salons, restaurants or barber shops, etc.)must not
be placed in or near the dryer. 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, 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 bg
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 lifejackets containing Kapok)
must not be put in your dryer.
• Do not dry fiberglass articles in gour dryer.
Skin irritation could result from the remaining
particles that mag be picked up bg 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 bg
removing the fuse or switching off the circuit
breaker before attempting ang maintenance or
cleaning (except the removal and cleaning of the
lint filter).NOTE:Turning the Cycle Selector knob
to an off position, or pressing PAUSEdoes NOT

Sensor Cycle [onsomemodels)
This feature is only activated in the
COTTONS,EASYCAREand DELICATES
cycles.
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
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. Removethe bulb and
replace with the same size bulb.
Drying
Rack (onsomemodels)
A handy drying rack may be used for drying
delicate items such as washable sweaters.
Hook the rack over the lint filter so
the rack extends into the dryer drum.

About loading and using the dryer.
ge.com
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, theg are sorted properly for the dryer
Do not overload. This wastes energy and causes
wrinkling.
Do not odd fabric softener sheets once the load
has become worm. Theg meg cause fabric softener
stains. Bounce ®Fabric Conditioner Drger Sheets
hove been approved for use in oil GE Drgers when
used in accordance with the manufacturer's
instructions.
Do not dry the following items: fiberglass items,
woolens, rubber-coated items, plastics, items with
plastic trim and foam-filled items.
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 gear.
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
drging time.
Follow these steps:
[_] Turn off electrical supply bg disconnecting
the plug from the wall socket.
[_] Disconnect the duct from the dryer.
I_1 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 not wildlife (birds, insects,
etc.) nesting inside the duct or hood.

About 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.
Carefullg 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 or collapse.
• Avoid resting the duct on sharp objects.
• Venting must conform to local building codes.

Possible Causes
What To Do
Clothes take too long

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 seeif outside wall damper operates easily.
• Check the Installation Instructions to make sure the
dryer venting is correct.
Clothes are wrinkled
Blownfuses or tripped
circuit breaker
• Replacefuses or reset circuit breakers.Sincemost 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.
Overdrging
• Select a shorter drying time.
• Removeitems while they still hold a slight amount of
moisture. Select a LESSDRYor DAMPDRY setting.
Clothes shrink
Letting items sit in dryer
after cycle ends
• Removeitems when cgcle ends and fold or hang
immediately.

• Separate large loads into smaller ones.
Some fabrics will naturally shrink • To avoid shrinkage, follow garment care labels exactly.
