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 loss of life.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLATION
Exhaust/Ducting:
• Gas dryers MUST be exhausted to the
outside. Failure to follow these instructions
can result in fire or death.
• The dryer exhaust system must be exhausted
to the outside of the dwelling. If the dryer is
not exhausted outdoors, some fine lint and
large amounts of moisture will be expelled
into the laundry area. An accumulation of
lint in any area of the home can create a health
and fire hazard.
• Use only rigid metal or flexible metal 4-inch
diameter ductwork inside the dryer cabinet
or for exhausting to the outside. Use of
plastic or other combustible ductwork can
cause a fire. Punctured ductwork can cause
a fire if it collapses or becomes otherwise
restricted in use or during installation.
• Ductwork is not provided with the dryer, and
you should obtain the necessary ductwork
locally. The end cap should have hinged
dampers to prevent backdraft when the dryer
is not in use. Failure to follow these instructions
can result in fire or death.
• The exhaust duct must be 4 inches
(10.2 cm) in diameter with no obstructions.
The exhaust duct should be kept as short as
possible. Make sure to clean any old ducts
before installing your new dryer. Failure to
follow these instructions can result in fire or
death.
• Rigid or semi - rigid metal ducting is
recommended for use between the
dryer and the wall. In special installations
when it is impossible to make a connection
with the above recommendations, a ULlisted flexible metal transition duct may be
used between the dryer and wall connection
only. The use of this ducting will affect drying
time. Failure to follow these instructions can
result in fire or death.
• DO NOT use sheet metal screws or other
fasteners which extend into the duct that
could catch lint and reduce the efficiency
of the exhaust system. Secure all joints with
duct tape. For complete details, follow the
Installation Instructions. Failure to follow these
instructions can result in fire or death.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR STEAM FUNCTIONS

ConnecTING GAS DRYERS
wWARNING:
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or personal injury when using this
appliance, follow basic precautions, including the following:
• Gas supply requirements:
As shipped from the factory, this dryer is
configured for use with natural gas. It can be
converted for use with LP (Liquefied Propane)
gas. Gas pressure must not exceed 13 inches
of water column.
•A qualified service or gas company technician
must connect the dryer to the gas service.
Failure to do so can result in fire, explosion,
or death.
•Isolate the dryer from the gas supply system
by closing its individual manual shutoff valve
during any pressure testing of the gas supply.
Failure to do so can result in fire, explosion,
or death.
•Supply line requirements:
Your laundry room must have a rigid gas
supply line to your dryer. In the United States,
an individual manual shutoff valve MUST be
installed within at least 6 ft. (1.8 m) of the dryer,
in accordance with the National Fuel Gas Code
ANSI Z223.1 or Canadian gas installation code
CSA B149.1. A 1⁄8 - inch NPT pipe plug must
be installed. Failure to do so can result in fire,
explosion, or death
•If using a rigid pipe, the rigid pipe should be
½ - inch IPS. If acceptable under local codes
and ordinances and when acceptable to your
gas supplier, 3⁄8 - inch approved tubing may be
used where lengths are less than 20 ft.
(6.1 m). Larger tubing should be used for
lengths in excess of 20 ft. (6.1 m). Failure to do
so can result in fire, explosion, or death.
•Connect the dryer to the type of gas shown on
the nameplate. Failure to do so can result in fire,
explosion, or death.
•To prevent contamination of the gas valve,
purge the gas supply of air and sediment
before connecting the gas supply to the dryer.
Before tightening the connection between the
gas supply and the dryer, purge remaining air
until the odor of gas is detected. Failure to do
so can result in fire, explosion, or death.
•DO NOT use an open flame to inspect for gas
leaks. Use a noncorrosive leak-detection fluid.
Failure to do so can result in fire, explosion, or
death.
• Use only a new AGA- or CSA-certified gas
supply line with flexible stainless steel
connectors. Failure to do so can result in fire,
explosion, or death.
•Securely tighten all gas connections. Failure
to do so can result in fire, explosion, or death.
•Use Teflon® tape or a pipe-joint compound that
is insoluble in Liquefied Petroleum (LP) gas on
all pipe threads. Failure to do so can result in fire,
explosion, or death.
•DO NOT attempt any disassembly of the dryer;
any disassembly requires the attention and
tools of an authorized and qualified service
person or company. Failure to do so can result
in fire, explosion, or death.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS FOR MANUFACTURED OR MOBILE HOMES
DUCT CONDITION TEST
Your dryer features FlowSense TM , an innovative
sensing system that automatically detects blockages
and restrictions in dryer ductwork. Keeping ductwork
clean of lint buildup and free of restrictions allows
clothes to dry faster and reduces energy use.
NOTE: When the dryer is first installed, this test
should be performed to alert you to any existing
problems with the exhaust duct in your home.
However, since the test performed during normal
operation provides more accurate information on
the condition of the exhaust duct than does the
installation test, the number of bars displayed during
the two tests may not be the same.
Correct Venting
To activate the duct condition test :
NOTE: Dryer heating test must be performed before
proceeding. If heating is normal, perform cooling
properly. Then perform the duct condition test below:
1 Press and hold the DAMP DRY BEEP and
TEMP. CONTROL buttons at the same time.
While holding these buttons, press POWER
ON/OFF.
2 The dryer will show lnS in the number display
to indicate that it is in duct condition testing
mode.
3
Avoid long runs or runs with multiple elbows
or bends.
Check for blockages and lint buildup.
Press the START/PAUSE button.
The dryer will run for
approximately 2 minutes to test
for blockages or restrictions to air
flow in the ductwork.
If no bars are shown in the display,
the ductwork is free from serious
blockages or restrictions.
If all bars are lit, the dryer ductwork
has a serious blockage that needs to be
removed immediately.
IMPORTANT: Do NOT interrupt the test cycle!
NOTE: Even if no bars are displayed during the duct
condition test, some restrictions may still be present
in the exhaust dust. Refer to pages 14-15 for more
information.

Loading the Dryer
wWARNING:
To reduce the risk
of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when
using this appliance, follow basic precautions,
including the following:
• Check all pockets to make sure that they are
empty. Items such as clips, pens, coins, and
keys can damage both your dryer and your
clothes. Flammable objects such as lighters
or matches could ignite, causing a fire.
Failure to do so can result in fire, explosion,
or death.
• Never dry clothes that have been exposed to
oil, gasoline, or other flammable substances.
Washing clothes will not completely remove
oil residues. Failure to obey this warning can
result in fire, explosion, or death.
28
Loading Tips
• Combine large and small items in a load.
• Damp clothes will expand as they dry. Do not
overload the dryer; clothes require room to
tumble dry properly.
• Close zippers, hooks, and drawstrings to
prevent these items from snagging or tangling
on other clothes.

steam time can be changed by pressing the
MORE TIME or LESS TIME buttons.
4 Press START/PAUSE button to start the cycle.
To Add STEAM to a Standard Cycle:
1 Turn on the dryer and turn the cycle selector
knob to select the desired cycle.
2 Use the cycle setting buttons to adjust the
settings for that cycle.
3 Press the Steam option button for the Steam
option you would like to add. Then adjust for
the load size using the MORE TIME or LESS
TIME buttons.
Press START/PAUSE button to start the cycle.
32
Using the Steam Options:
This option injects steam late in the
drying cycle to reduce the static
electricity caused by dry fabrics
rubbing together. Change the amount
of time for the cycle by pressing the
MORE TIME or LESS TIME button, depending on
the load (quantity of items). The display will show
the recommended number of items, such as 7, 9,
11, 14, 16, or 18.
The EASY IRON option provides
uniform, properly dampened fabrics
for ironing, which can save time
and make ironing easier. Change
the amount of time for the cycle by
pressing the MORE TIME or LESS TIME button,
depending on the load (quantity of items). The
display will show the recommended number of
items, such as 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5.
The REDUCE STATIC and EASY IRON options
can only be used with the PERM PRESS
CASUAL, HEAVY DUTY, BULKY/BEDDING,
COTTON/NORMAL, DELICATES and TOWELS
cycles.
NOTES:
• When Sensor Dry is selected with the
REDUCE STATIC option, a Dry level of Less
or DAMP cannot be selected.

REGULAR CLEANING
BEFORE CALLING FOR SERVICE
Your dryer is equipped with an automatic error-monitoring system to detect and diagnose problems at an
early stage. If your dryer does not function properly or does not function at all, check the following before
you call for service.
Problem
Possible Causes
Solutions
Dryer will not
turn on
• Power cord is not properly
plugged in.
• House fuse is blown, circuit
breaker has tripped, or
power outage has occurred.
• Make sure that the plug is plugged securely into a
grounded outlet matching the dryer’s rating plate.
• Reset circuit breaker or replace fuse. Do not increase
fuse capacity. If the problem is a circuit overload,
have it corrected by a qualified electrician.
Dryer does not heat
• House fuse is blown, circuit
breaker has tripped, or
power outage has occurred.
• Reset circuit breaker or replace fuse. Do not
increase fuse capacity. If the problem is a
circuit overload, have it corrected by a qualified
electrician.
• Confirm that the house gas shutoff and the dryer
gas shutoff are both fully open.
• Gas supply or service turned
off (gas models only).
Greasy or dirty spots
on clothes
• Fabric softener used
incorrectly.
• Clean and dirty clothes being
dried together.
• Clean and dirty clothes being
dried together.
Display shows error
code tE1 or tE2
• Thermistor is malfunctioning.
• Turn off the dryer and call for service.
Lint on clothes
• Lint filter not cleaned
properly.
• Make sure the lint filter is cleaned before every
load. With some loads that produce high amounts
of lint, it may be necessary to clean the filter
during the cycle.
• Some fabrics are lint producers (i.e., a fuzzy white
cotton towel) and should be dried separately from
clothes that are lint trappers (i.e., a pair of black
linen pants).
• See the Excess static in clothes after drying
section below.
• Divide larger loads into smaller loads for drying.
• Check pockets thoroughly before washing and
drying clothes.
• Laundry not sorted properly.
• Excess static in clothes.
• Dryer is overloaded.
• Tissue, paper, etc., left
in pockets.
Excess static in
clothes after drying
• Fabric softener not used or
used incorrectly.
• Clothes dried too long
(overdried).
• Drying synthetics, permanent
press, or synthetic blends.
36
• Confirm and follow the instructions provided with
your fabric softener.
• Make sure to use your dryer to dry only clean
items, because dirty items can soil clean clothes
placed in the same or subsequent loads.
• Stains on dried clothes are actually stains that
weren’t removed during the washing process.
Make sure that clothes are being completely
cleaned according to the instructions for your
washer and detergent.
• Use a fabric softener to reduce static electricity.
Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
• Overdrying a load of laundry can cause a buildup
of static electricity. Adjust settings and use a
shorter drying time, or use SENSOR DRY cycles.
• These materials can cause static buildup. Try
using a fabric softener.
Problem
Possible Causes
Solutions
Drying time is not
consistent
• Heat settings, load size, or
dampness of clothing is not
consistent.
• The drying time for a load will vary depending on the
heat setting, the type of heat used (electric, natural,
or LP gas), the size of the load, the type of fabrics,
the wetness of the clothes, and the condition of the
exhaust ducts and lint filter.
Clothes take too
long to dry
• Load is not properly sorted.
• Separate heavy items from lightweight items. Larger
and heavier items take longer to dry.
• Heavy fabrics take longer to dry because they tend
to retain more moisture. To help reduce and maintain
more consistent drying times for large and heavy
fabrics, separate these items into smaller loads of
a consistent size.
• Use the appropriate control settings for the type of
load you are drying.
• Make sure the lint filter is cleaned before every load.
With some loads that produce high amounts of lint, it
may be necessary to clean the filter during the cycle.
• Confirm that the exhaust ductwork is properly
configured and free of debris, lint, and obstructions.
Make sure that outside wall dampers can open
properly and are not blocked, jammed, or damaged.
• Reset circuit breaker or replace fuse. Do not increase
fuse capacity. If the problem is a circuit overload, have
it corrected by a qualified electrician.
• Divide larger loads into smaller loads for drying.
• If you are drying a very small load, add a few extra
items to ensure proper tumbling action.
• Large load of heavy fabrics.
• Dryer controls are not set
properly.
• Lint filter needs to be
cleaned.
• Exhaust ducts blocked, dirty,
or duct run is too long.
• House fuse is blown, circuit
breaker has tripped, or
power outage has occurred.
• Dryer is overloaded.
• Dryer is underloaded.
Clothes are wrinkled
• Clothes dried too long
(overdried).
• Clothes left in dryer too long
after cycle ends.
• Overdrying a load of laundry can lead to wrinkled
clothes. Try a shorter drying time, and remove items
while they still retain a slight amount of moisture.
• Remove items from the dryer immediately at the end of
the cycle. Use the WRINKLE CARE option to continue
tumbling clothes at the end of the cycle, for up to 3 hours.
Clothes are shrinking • Garment care instructions
are not being followed.
• To avoid shrinkage, please carefully follow the fabric
care instructions for your garment, because some
fabrics will naturally shrink when washed. Other fabrics
can be washed but will shrink when dried in a dryer. Use
a low or no heat setting and/or the RACK DRY option.
