Drying tips ■ Follow care label directions when they are available. ■ If you use fabric softener sheets, use only those labeled “dryer safe.” Follow package instructions. ■ Remove the load from the dryer as soon as tumbling stops to reduce wrinkling. This is especially important for permanent press, knits, and synthetic fabrics. To restart your dryer 1. Close the door. 2. Select a new cycle (if desired). 3. Push START. Cycle and temperature tips ■ Dry most loads using the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (*). ■ Use a no heat (air) setting for rubber, plastic, or heat sensitive fabrics. ■ Line dry bonded or laminated fabrics. NOTE: If you have questions about drying temperatures for various loads, refer to the care label directions. 11 CYCLE DESCRIPTIONS Air Cycle Use this cycle for items that require drying without heat, such as rubber, plastic, and heat-sensitive fabrics. See the chart for examples of items that can be dried using an air cycle. Type of Load Time* Foam rubber—pillows, padded bras, stuffed toys Plastic—shower curtains, tablecloths Rubber-backed rugs Olefin, polypropylene, sheer nylon 20 - 30 20 - 30 40 - 50 10 - 20 *(Minutes). Reset cycle to complete drying, if needed. When using an air cycle ■ Check to see that coverings are securely stitched. Cycle Control knob Permanent Press Cycle This automatic cycle shuts off the dryer when the selected dryness is reached. The Cycle Control knob does not move until the load is almost dry. After the cool down, the knob automatically turns to an Off area and tumbling stops. Dry most loads using the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (*). ■ If the load is drier than you like, select a setting closer to Less Dry the next time you dry a similar load. ■ If the load is not as dry as you like, complete drying using the Timed Dry cycle. The next time you dry a similar load, select a setting closer to More Dry. NOTE: Drying time with an automatic cycle varies according to the type of fabric, size of load, and temperature setting. Timed Dry Cycle Use this cycle to complete drying if items are still damp after the automatic cycle. Timed Drying is also useful for: ■ Heavyweight items and work clothes that require a long drying time. ■ Lightweight items, such as lingerie, blouses, and knits that require a short drying time. For damp dry, turn the Cycle Control knob to 30 minutes or less. 12 ■ Shake and fluff pillows by hand periodically during cycle. ■ Dry item completely. Foam rubber pillows are slow to dry. End of Cycle Signal The dryer sounds a signal to let you know when the cycle is finished. The signal is not adjustable and cannot be turned off. The signal is helpful when you are drying permanent press, synthetics, and other items that should be taken out as soon as the dryer stops. DRYER CARE Cleaning the Dryer Interior Cleaning the Lint Screen Every load cleaning The lint screen is located inside the dryer drum, on the back wall. Clean it before each load. A screen blocked by lint can increase drying time. To clean 1. Open the door and pull the lint screen straight out. Explosion Hazard Use nonflammable cleaner. Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire. To clean dryer drum 2. Squeeze body of lint screen lightly while pulling off the cover. 3. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers. Do not rinse or wash screen to remove lint. Wet lint is hard to remove. 4. Replace cover on lint screen body. Push the lint screen firmly back into place and close the door. IMPORTANT: ■ Do not run the dryer with the lint screen loose, damaged, blocked, or missing. Doing so can cause overheating and damage to both the dryer and fabrics. ■ Some towels made of synthetic fibers and natural fibers (polyester and cotton blends) may shed more lint than other towels, causing your dryer’s lint screen to fill up faster. Be sure to remove lint from the lint screen before and after drying new towels. As needed cleaning Laundry detergent and fabric softener residue can build up on the lint screen. This buildup can cause longer drying times for your clothes, or cause the dryer to stop before your load is completely dry. The screen is probably clogged if lint falls off the screen. Clean the lint screen with a nylon brush every six months, or more frequently if it becomes clogged due to a residue buildup. To wash 1. Wet both the lint screen cover and body with hot water. 2. Wet a nylon brush with hot water and liquid detergent. Scrub lint screen cover and body with the brush to remove residue buildup. 1. Make a paste with powdered laundry detergent and very warm water. 2. Apply paste to a soft cloth. OR Apply a liquid, non-flammable household cleaner to the stained area and rub with a soft cloth until all excess dye is removed. 3. Wipe drum thoroughly with a damp cloth. 4. Tumble a load of clean cloths or towels to dry drum. NOTE: Garments which contain unstable dyes, such as denim blue jeans or brightly colored cotton items, may discolor the dryer interior. These stains are not harmful to your dryer and will not stain future loads of clothes. Dry unstable dye items insideout to prevent dye transfer. Removing Accumulated Lint from Inside the Dryer Cabinet Lint should be removed every two years, or more often, depending on dryer usage. Cleaning should be done by a qualified person. 3. Rinse with hot water. 4. Thoroughly dry lint screen body and cover with a clean towel. Replace in dryer. 13 TROUBLESHOOTING First try the solutions suggested here and possibly avoid the cost of a service call... Lint on load ■ Is the lint screen clogged? Clean lint screen. Check for air movement. ■ Is the load properly sorted? Sort lint givers (towels, chenille) from lint takers (corduroy, synthetics). Also sort by color. ■ Is the load too big or too heavy? Dry smaller loads so lint can be carried to the lint screen. ■ Was the load overdried? Use correct dryer settings for load type. Overdrying can cause lint-attracting static electricity. See “Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips.” ■ Was paper or tissue left in pockets? ■ Is pilling being mistaken for lint? Pilling (surface fuzz) is caused by normal wear and laundering. Clothes are not drying satisfactorily ■ The compact dryer operates at a lower wattage. Expect longer drying times. ■ Check the following: Is the wire exhaust guard removed from the back of the dryer? Is the lint screen clogged with lint? Is the exhaust vent or outside exhaust hood clogged with lint, restricting air movement? Run the dryer for 5-10 minutes. Hold your hand under the outside exhaust hood to check air movement. If you do not feel air movement, clean exhaust system of lint or replace exhaust vent with heavy metal or flexible metal vent. See “Installation Instructions.” Stains on load or color change ■ Was dryer fabric softener properly used? Add dryer fabric softener sheets at the beginning of the cycle. Fabric softener sheets added to a partially-dried load can stain your garments. ■ Were items soiled when placed in the dryer? Items should be clean before being dried. ■ Were items properly sorted? Sort light colors from dark colors. Sort colorfast items from noncolorfast items. Is the exhaust vent crushed or kinked? Replace with heavy metal or flexible metal vent. See “Installation Instructions.” Has an air dry cycle been selected? Select the right cycle for the types of garments being dried. See “Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips.” Are fabric softener sheets blocking the grill? Use only one fabric softener sheet and only use it once. Is the automatic cycle ending early? This cycle will end early if dryer load is not contacting the sensor strips. Level the dryer. See “Installation Instructions.” Is the dryer located in a room with temperature below 45ºF (7ºC)? Proper operation of dryer cycles requires temperatures above 45ºF (7ºC). ■ Items shrinking ■ Was the dryer overloaded? Dry smaller loads that can tumble freely. ■ Did the load overdry? Check the manufacturer’s care label. Match dryer setting to load type. See “Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips.” Was a cold rinse water used? Was the load very wet? Expect longer drying times with items rinsed in cold water and with items that hold moisture (cottons). ■ Is the load too large and heavy to dry quickly? Separate the load to tumble freely. ■ Loads are wrinkled ■ Was the load removed from dryer at the end of the cycle? ■ Was the dryer overloaded? Dry smaller loads that can tumble freely. ■ Did the load overdry? Check the manufacturer’s care label. Match dryer setting to load type. See “Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips.” Dryer will not run Check the following: Is the power cord plugged into a grounded 3 prong outlet? ■ Has a fuse blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped? Odors Was a regular fuse used? Use a time-delay fuse. Is the dryer door firmly closed? ■ Have you recently been painting, staining, or varnishing in the area where your dryer is located? If so, ventilate the area. When the odors or fumes are gone from the area, re-wash and dry the clothing. ■ Is the dryer being used for the first time? The new electric heating element may have an odor. The odor will be gone after the first cycle. Was the START button firmly pressed? Is a cycle selected? Unusual sounds ■ Has the dryer had a period of non-use? If the dryer hasn’t been used for a while, there may be a thumping sound during the first few minutes of operation. Garment damage ■ Check the following: Were zippers, snaps, and hooks left open? Were strings and sashes tied to prevent tangling? Were care label instructions followed? Were items damaged before drying? 14 ASSISTANCE OR SERVICE Before calling for assistance or service, please check “Troubleshooting.” It may save you the cost of a service call.
