READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USE
wWarning
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, injury to persons, or death.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLATION
wWarning
To reduce the risk of injury to persons, follow all industry recommended safety procedures including the use of long sleeved gloves and
safety glasses. Failure to follow all of the safety warnings in this manual could result in property damage, injury to persons or death.
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 UL-listed 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
wWarning
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using this appliance, follow basic precautions, including the following:

washed in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, dry-cleaning
solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances as they
give off vapors that could ignite or explode. Failure to follow
these instructions can result in fire or death.
•D
o not fill the steam feeder with gasoline, dry-cleaning
solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances. Failure
to follow these instructions can result in fire or death.
•D
o not touch the steam nozzle in the drum during or after the
steam cycle. Failure to follow these instructions can result in a

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.

• DO NOT vent the dryer under a manufactured home or mobile
home.
• Electric dryers may be vented to the outside using the back, left,
right, or bottom panel.
• Gas dryers may be vented to the outside using the back, left,
or bottom panel. Gas dryers may not be vented to the outside
using the right side panel because of the burner housing.
• The dryer exhaust duct must be affixed securely to the
manufactured or mobile home structure, and the exhaust duct
must be made of a material that will resist fire and combustion.
It is recommended that you use a rigid or flexible metal duct.
• DO NOT connect the dryer exhaust duct to any other duct, vent,
chimney, or other exhaust duct.
• Make sure the dryer has adequate access to outside fresh air to
ensure proper operation. The opening for outside fresh air must
be at least 25 in2 (163 cm2).
• It is important that the clearance of the duct from any
combustible construction be at least 2 inches (5 cm), and when
venting the dryer to the outdoors, the dryer can be installed with
a clearance of 1 inch (2.5 cm) at the sides and back of the dryer.
• Please be aware that venting materials are not supplied with

Testing dryer heating
GAS MODELS
Close the dryer door, press the ON/OFF button to turn the dryer
on, and start the dryer on a heat setting. When the dryer starts,
the igniter should ignite the main burner.
NOTE
If all air is not purged from the gas line, the gas igniter may turn
off before the main burner ignites. If this happens, the igniter
will reattempt gas ignition after approximately two minutes.
Electric models
Close the dryer door, press the ON/OFF switch to turn the dryer
on, and start the dryer on a heat setting. The exhaust air should
be warm after the dryer has been operating for 3 minutes.
Checking airflow
Effective dryer operation requires proper airflow.
The adequacy of the airflow can be measured by evaluating
the static pressure. Static pressure in the exhaust duct can
be measured with a manometer, placed on the exhaust duct
approximately 2 ft. (60.9 cm) from the dryer.
Static pressure in the exhaust duct should not exceed 0.6 inches
(1.5 cm). The dryer should be checked while the dryer is running
with no load.
Checking levelness
Once the dryer is in its final location, recheck the dryer to be sure
it is level. Make sure it is level front to back and side to side, and
that all 4 leveling feet are firmly on the floor.

TROUBLESHOOTING
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.
• Gas supply or service turned off
(gas models only).
•R
eset circuit breaker or replace fuse. Do not increase fuse capacity. If the
problem is a circuit overload, have it corrected by a qualified electrician.
•C
onfirm that the house gas shutoff and the dryer gas shutoff are both fully
open.
Greasy or dirty spots
on clothes
• Fabric softener used incorrectly.
• Clean and dirty clothes being dried
together.
• 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 were not removed during the
washing process.
Make sure that clothes are being completely cleaned according to the
instructions for your washer and detergent.
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.
•M
ake 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.
• S ome 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.
• Use a fabric softener to reduce static electricity correctly. Do not use fabric
softeners or products to eliminate static unless recommended by the
manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
• 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 gas, 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.
• S eparate heavy items from lightweight items. Larger and heavier items take
longer to dry.
•H
eavy 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.
•U
se the appropriate control settings for the type of load you are drying.
•M
ake 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.
•C
onfirm 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.
•R
eset 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.
• I f 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.

NOTE
- Only use this feature when instructed to do so by the call center. The transmission sounds similar to a fax
machine, and so has no meaning except to the call center.
- SMARTDIAGNOSIS™ cannot be activated if the dryer does not power up. If this happens, then troubleshooting
must be done without SMARTDIAGNOSIS™.
If you experience problems with your dryer, call 1-800-243-0000 (1-888-542-2623 in Canada). Follow the call center agent’s instructions,
and do the following steps when requested:
1. Press

2. When instructed to do so by the call center agent, place the mouthpiece of your phone very close to the POWER button.
3. Press and hold TEMP.CONTROL button for three seconds, while holding the phone mouthpiece to the icon or POWER button.
4. Keep the phone in place until the tone transmission has finished. This takes about 17 seconds, and the display will count down the
time.
• For best results, do not move the phone while the tones are being transmitted and do not touch the control panel with the phone.
• If the call center agent is not able to get an accurate recording of the data, you may be asked to try again.
• Pressing the POWER button during the transmission will shut off the SMARTDIAGNOSIS™.
5. Once the countdown is over and the tones have stopped, resume your conversation with the call center agent, who will then be able
to assist you using the information transmitted for analysis at the call center.
