GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS
If your outlet looks like this:
©
4-wire receptacle (14-30R)
Then choose a 4-wire power supply cord with ring or spade
terminals and UL approved strain relief. The 4-wire power supply
cord, at least 4 ft (1.22 m) long, must have 4, 10 gauge solid
copper wires and match a 4-wire receptacle of NEMA Type
14-30R. The ground wire (ground conductor) may be either green
or bare. The neutral conductor must be identified by a white
cover.
• For a grounded, cord-connected dryer:
This dryer must be grounded. In the event of malfunction
or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock
by providing a path of least resistance for electric current. This
dryer uses a cord having an equipment-grounding
conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged
into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
• For a permanently connected dryer:
This dryer must be connected to a grounded metal, permanent
wiring system, or an equipment-grounding conductor must be
run with the circuit conductors and connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on the dryer.
WARNING:
If your outlet looks like this:
©
3-wire receptacle (10-30R)
Then choose a 3-wire power supply cord with ring or spade
terminals and UL approved strain relief. The 3-wire power supply
cord, at least 4 ft (1.22 m) long, must have 3, No.-10 copper wires
and match a 3-wire receptacle of NEMA Type 10-30R.
Improper connection of the equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or service representative or
personnel if you are in doubt as to whether the dryer is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug on the power supply cord:
if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a
qualified electrician.

FEATURES AND
BENEFITS
The exclusive TOTAL CARE TM System combines the KING
SIZE TM load capacity, EVENHEAT TM with Auto Temp Control,
WRINKLE GUARD ®III, and the TUMBLE FREE TM heated dryer
rack to ensure total drying care for any type of fabric and load
size.
.......
.._. ,
In automatic drying cycles, the temperature of the clothes is
reduced by automatically turning down the heat as the clothes
become dry. This reduces over drying and provides better care of
the fabrics in your clothes.
The EVENHEAW Mwith Auto Temp Control system for drying uses
dual moisture sensing devices and SENSOR SMART TM controls,
EVENHEAW M with Auto Temp Control shortens drying time and
dries the load at lower temperatures for optimal fabric care, The
EVENHEAW M with Auto Temp Control system monitors the
temperature of the heated air to ensure that it is never too hot to
cause fabric damage. It also terminates the cycle when the
clothes are dry to reduce shrinkage.
When the selected level of dryness is reached, the dryer goes
into a cool down period lasting 2-10 minutes. Unlike other dryers
that provide a fixed 10-minute cool down, the length of the
"Smart" cool down is based on the cycle time and selected
dryness setting.
•
For small loads or loads that are dried at a lower temperature,
the cool down may be as low as 2 minutes.
•
For large loads or loads that are dried at a higher
temperature, the cool down will be closer to 10 minutes.
If you do not feel heat, turn the dryer off and check the
following:
•
There may be 2 fuses or circuit breakers for the dryer. Check
to make sure both fuses are intact and tight, or that both
circuit breakers have not tripped. If there is still no heat,
contact a qualified technician.
NOTE: You may notice a burning odor when the dryer is first
heated. This odor is common when the heating element is first
used. The odor will go away.
Auto Temperature Control monitors the temperature and moisture
of your clothes and turns down the temperature at the right time.
By sensing the temperature and moisture, jeans come out of the
dryer ready to wear. You can put them on without them being
damp or overdry.

Every load cleaning
The lint screen is located in the door of the dryer. Clean it before
each load. A screen blocked by lint can increase drying time.
To clean
To clean the dryer drum
1.
Make a paste with powdered
warm
laundry detergent and very
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 damp cloth.
4.
Tumble a load of clean cloths or towels to dry the drum.
1o Pull the lint screen straight up. Roll lint off the screen with
your fingers. Do not rinse or wash screen to remove lint. Wet
lint is hard to remove.
NOTE: Garments which contain unstable dyes, such as denim
blue jeans or brightly colored cotton items, may discolor the
interion These stains are not harmful to your dryer and will not
stain future loads of clothes. Dry unstable dye items inside out to
prevent dye transfer.
2. Push the lint screen firmly back into place.
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.
•
If lint falls oft the screen into the dryer during removal, check
the exhaust hood and remove the lint. (See "Venting
Requirements.")
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 oft the screen.
Clean the lint screen with a nylon brush every 6 months or more
frequently if it becomes clogged due to a residue buildup.
To wash
From Inside the Dryer Cabinet:
Lint should be removed every 2 years or more often, depending
on dryer usage. Cleaning should be done by a qualified person.
From the Exhaust Vent:
Lint should be removed every 2 years, or more often, depending
on dryer usage.
Vacation cam

TROUBLESHOOTING
Dryer will not run
•
First try the solutions suggested here and possibly avoid
the cost of a service call.
Dryer displaying
Checkthe following:
Is the power cord plugged in?
Has a fuse blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped?
Was a regular fuse used? Use a time-delay fuse.
code message
Is the dryer door firmly closed?
•
"PF" (power failure), check the following:
Is the dryer connected to the power supply?
Was the START button firmly pressed?
Is a cycle selected?
Was the dryer connected to a power supply during
installation or a power failure?
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear display.
Was the drying cycle interrupted by a power failure?
Press START to restart the dryer.
•
Unusual sounds
•
"E" Variable (El, E2, E3) service codes:
Call for service.
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.
Lint on load
Clothes are not drying satisfactorily
•
Is the lint screen clogged?
Clean lint screen. Check for air movement.
Check the following:
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").
Is 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 (see "Changing
Cycles, Options and Modifiers"). Overdrying can cause
lint-attracting static electricity.
•
Was paper or tissue left in pockets?
•
Is pilling being mistaken for lint?
Pilling (surface fuzz) is caused by normal wear and
laundering.
Is the exhaust vent crushed or kinked? Replace with a heavy
metal vent ("see "Installation Instructions").
Has a fuse blown, or a circuit breaker tripped? Electric dryers
use 2 household fuses or breakers. The drum may be turning
but you may not have heat.
Has an Air Dry cycle been selected? Select the right cycle for
the types of garments being dried (see "Cycles").
Is the automatic cycle ending early? The load may not be
contacting the electronic sensor strips. Level the dryer.
Are fabric softener sheets blocking the grille? Use only one
fabric softener sheet and only use it once.
Is the dryer located in a room with temperature below
45°F (7°C)?
Proper operation of dryer cycles requires temperatures above
45°F (7°0).
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.

•
Was dryer fabric softener properly used?
