lint in any area of the home can create a health
and fire hazard.
• Use only rigid metal or flexible metal 4-in.
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 in. (10 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

wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified
electrician to make sure the outlet is properly
grounded. Failure to follow these instructions
can create an electrical shock hazard and/or a
fire hazard.
• The dryer should always be plugged into
its own individual electrical outlet which
has a voltage rating that matches the rating
plate. This provides the best performance
and also prevents overloading house wiring
circuits which could cause a fire hazard from
overheated wires.
• Never unplug your dryer by pulling on the
power cord. Always grip plug firmly and pull
straight out from the outlet. The power cord
can be damaged, resulting in a risk of fire and
electrical shock.

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-in. 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
1/2-in. IPS. If acceptable under local codes
and ordinances and when acceptable to your
gas supplier, 3/8-in. 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.

• A gas dryer must be permanently attached to
the floor.
• The electrical connection for an electric dryer
must be a 4-wire connection. More detailed
information concerning the electrical connection
is provided in the section Connecting Electric
Dryers.
• To reduce the risk of combustion and fire, the
dryer must be vented to the outside.
• 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 in. (5 cm), and when venting the dryer to
the outdoors, the dryer can be installed with a
clearance of 1 in. (2.5 cm) at the sides and back
of the dryer.

installation.
FINAL INSTALLATION CHECK
Once you have completed the installation of the dryer and it is in its final location, confirm proper operation
with the following tests and Duct Condition Testing on the following page.
Testing Dryer Heating
Checking Airflow
GAS MODELS
Close the dryer door, press the ON/OFF switch
to turn the dryer on, and start the dryer on a heat
setting. When the dryer starts, the igniter should
ignite the main burner.
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 in. (1.5 cm). The dryer should be
checked while the dryer is running with no load.
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 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.
23
FLOW CHECK (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 flow check (Duct condition test) :
NOTE: Dryer heating test must be performed before
proceeding. 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.
Restricted or Blocked Airflow
Avoid long runs or runs with multiple elbows
or bends.
2 The dryer will show lnS in the number display
to indicate that it is in duct condition testing
mode.
3
Press START/PAUSE. The dryer
will run for approximately 2
minutes to test for blockages
or restrictions to air flow in the
ductwork.
Check for blockages and lint buildup.
If “YES” is shown in the display,
the ductwork is free from
blockages or restrictions.
If “no” is shown in the display, the
dryer ductwork has a blockage
that needs to be removed
immediately.
IMPORTANT: Do NOT interrrupt the test cycle!
24
Make sure the ductwork is not crushed
or restricted.
Following are instructions for starting and using your new dryer. Please refer to specific sections of this

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.
• 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.
CHECK THE LINT FILTER BEFORE EVERY LOAD
Always make sure the lint filter is clean before
starting a new load; a clogged lint filter will
increase drying times.
To clean, pull the lint filter straight up and roll any
lint off the filter with your fingers. Do not rinse or
wash the filter to remove lint. Push the lint filter
firmly back into place. See “Care and Cleaning”
for more information.

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.
6
• 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.
BEFORE CALLING FOR SERVICE (cont.)
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.
