When disconnecting this appliance pull by the plug rather than the cord to
avoid damage to the cord or junction of cord and plug. Make sure that the
cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over or otherwise
subjected to damage or stress.
To Minimize the Possibility of a Fire Hazard
• Do not use heat to dry articles containing rubber, plastic, or similar materials (such as
padded bras, tennis shoes, galoshes, bath mats, rugs, bibs, pillows, baby pants, plastic
bags, etc.) as these materials may melt or burn. Also, some rubber materials, when
heated, can under certain circumstances produce fire by spontaneous combustion.
• Do not store items that may burn or melt (such as clothing, paper material, plastics or
plastic containers, etc.) on top of the dryer during operation.
• Garments labeled “Dry Away from Heat” must not be put in your dryer.
• Do not wash or dry articles that have been cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted
with combustible or explosive substances (such as wax, paint, gasoline degreasers,
dry-cleaning solvents, kerosene, etc.) which may ignite or explode.
Do not add these substances to the wash water. Do not use these substances around your
washer and/or dryer during operation.
• Any article on which you have used a cleaning solvent, or which contains
flammable materials (such as cleaning cloths, mops, towels used in beauty salons,
restaurants or barber shops, etc.) must not be placed in or near the dryer until all
traces of these flammable liquids or solids and their fumes have been removed.
There are many highly flammable items used in homes such as: acetone,
de-natured alcohol, gasoline, kerosene, some household cleaners, some spot removers,
turpentines, waxes, wax removers and products containing petroleum distillates.
SAMSUNG Clothes Dryers Owner’s Instructions 3
Safety Instructions
• Clean the lint filter before each load to prevent lint accumulation inside the dryer or in
the room. DO NOT OPERATE THE DRYER WITHOUT LINTFILTER IN PLACE.
• Keep the area around the exhaust opening, and around and underneath your appliances
free from the accumulation of combustible materials, such as lint, paper, rags,
chemicals, etc.
• Regularly inspect the vent duct to ensure it has not been crushed or otherwise restricted.
• The interior of the dryer cabinet and the exhaust duct connection inside the dryer should
be cleaned every 2 to 3 years, or more often if needed, by a qualified service person.
To Minimize the Possibility of Injury
• Never reach into the dryer while the drum is moving. Before loading, unloaing or
adding clothes, wait until the drum has completely stopped.
• Do not dry fiberglass articles in your dryer. Skin irritation could result from the remaining glass particles that may be picked up by clothing during subsequent dryer uses.
• The laundry process can reduce the flame retardance of some fabrics. To avoid such a
result, the garment manufacturer’s care instructions should be followed very carefully.
• Close supervision is necessary if this appliance is used in reach of or near children. Do
not allow children to play inside, on, or with this appliance or any discarded appliance.
Dispose of discarded appliances and shipping or packing materials properly. Before
discarding a dryer, or removing from service, remove the door of the dryer
compartment.
• Keep all laundry aids (such as detergents, bleaches, fabric softeners, etc.) out of the
reach of children, preferably in a locked cabinet. Observe all warnings on container
labels to avoid personal injury.
• Keep the floor around your appliances clean and dry to reduce the possibility of
slipping.
• To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug this appliance from the power
supply before attempting any maintenance or cleaning (except the removal and
cleaning of the lint filter).
• Do not tamper with the controls.
• Do not operate this appliance if it is damaged, malfunctioning, partially disassembled,
or has missing or broken parts, including a damaged cord or plug.
• Never climb on or stand on the dryer.
• DO NOTplace items exposed to cooking oils in your dryer. Items contaminaed with
cooking oils may contribute to a chemical reaction that could cause a clothes load to
catch fire.

Installation Instructions
DUCTING INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Installation and service must be performed by a qualified installer or service agency.
IMPORTANT: Have your dryer installed properly.
NOTE: The WARNING and IMPORTANT instructions appearing in this manual are
not meant to cover all possible conditions and situations that may occur. It must
be understood that common sense, caution, and carefulness are factors that CANNOT be built into the dryer. These factors MUST BE supplied by the person(s)
installing, maintaining, or operating the dryer.
Failure to install, maintain, and/or operate this machine according to the manufacturer’s
instructions may result in conditions which can result in bodily injury and/or damage
to property.
This dryer comes ready for rear
venting.
WARNINGS
• Never use flexible duct inside the dryer.
• Do not terminate ducting in a chimney,
range hood, gas vent, floor or attic
space. The combination of lint and
grease could create a fire hazard or
cause damage.
• Provide an access for inspection and
cleaning the exhaust system at least
once a year.
EXHAUST LENGTH
The MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE length
of the ducting depends upon the type
of duct, number of turns, the type of
external venting point, and all conditions
noted below. The maximum allowable
length for both rigid and flexible metal
ducting is shown in table 1 (next page).
More than four 90°turns is not
recommended.
VENTING CHECK LIST HOOD
or WALL CAP
• Terminate ducting in a manner to
prevent back drafts, entry of birds or
other wildlife.
• Termination should present minimal
resistance to the exhaust air flow and
should require little or no maintenance
to prevent clogging.
• Wall caps must be installed at least 300
mm (12”) above ground level or any
other obstruction with the opening
pointed down.
• If roof vents or louvered plenums are
used, they must be equivalent to a 100
mm (4”) wall cap with damper, in
regard to resistance to air flow,
prevention of back drafts and
maintenance required to prevent
clogging.
SEPARATION OF TURNS
Separate all turns by at least 1m(3ft.) of
straight duct, including distance between
last turn and dampered wall cap. If two
turns must be closer than 1 m (3 ft.)
deduct 3 m (10 ft.) from the maximum
lengths shown in the table for each occurrence.
TURNS OTHER THAN 90°
• One turn of 45° or less may be ignored.
• Two 45° turns should be treated as one
90°.
• Each turn over 45° should be treated as
one 90°.
SEALING OF JOINTS
• All joints should be tight to avoid leaks.
The male end of each section of duct
must point away from the dryer.
• Do not assemble the duct work with
fasteners that extend into the duct. They
will serve as a collection point for lint.
• Duct joints can be made air and
moisture-tight by wrapping the
overlapped joints with duct tape.
INSULATION
• Duct work which runs through an
unheated area or is near an air conditioning duct, should be insulated to
reduce condensation and lint build up
and be sloped down toward outdoors.
NOTE: Never install screen inside exhaust duct.
WARNING: THE DRYER MUST
VENT TO THE OUTDOORS.
TO PREVENT LARGE AMOUNTS
OF LINT AND MOISTURE FROM
ACCUMULATING AND TO
MAINTAIN DRYING EFFICIENCY,
THIS MACHINE MUST BE
VENTED OUTDOORS.

Operating Instructions, Tips
LOADING CLOTHES
• Preparing Laundry
Check that all fastenings are closed and that pockets are empty.
Place laundry loosely in the drum to make sure that they don’t get tangled.
• Sort laundry as follows (Examples)
As a general rule, sort clothes by surface texture, fabric, color and weight,
as you would for your washer.
By care symbols
Suitable for tumble drying
Tumble drying at low temperature only
Do not tumble dry
By amount and weight
Lightweight fabrics dry faster than heavyweight fabrics. If mixed loads are
dried together(such as sheets and towels), remove the lighter weight fabrics to
prevent over drying and wrinkling.
Whenever the load is bigger than the dryer capacity, separate laundry according to weight.(ex, towels from thin underwear)
By type of fabrics
Cotton/Linen : Made of cotton or linen
Synthetics : Made of polyester or polyamide as well as for cotton/synthetic
mixes.
Delicates : Sensitive fabrics
By drying level
Extra dry, cupboard dry, iron dry, etc.
• Do not tumble dry the following items :
woolens, silk, delicate fabrics, nylon stocking, delicate embroidery, fiberglass
items, rubber-coated items, plastics, items with plastic trim, foam-filled items,
items with metallic decorations and bulky items such as sleeping bags, etc
- Clothing with metallic components may damage the drum interior during
drying.
• Do not overload.
Excessive loads don’t dry efficiently and cause wrinkling.
• Do not add fabric softener sheets once the load has become warm.
Polyester Knits & Permanent Press Drying Tips
• DO NOT OVERLOAD- Garments being dried or de-wrinkled should tumble
freely.
• REMOVE CLOTHES PROMPTLY- To help prevent wrinkling, remove clothes
from the dryer promptly at the end of the drying cycles.
• PLACE ON HANGERS- Permanent press and polyester knit garments look best
if placed on hangers after drying.

Drying Times
It is impossible to give exact drying times. Conditions from home to home vary and
directly affect drying times. The length of time it takes to dry loads will depend on
several things.
• Load Size
• Type of fabric, washer, and spin speed will determine moisture in the fabric.
• Heat and moisture in the room. Damp air coming into the dryer will increase drying
time.
• Installation (Length of exhaust duct, etc)
• Electric voltage.
If you select an automatic cycle, the machine will determine the time needed for drying.
During the DRYcycle, the remaining time may be increased or decreased in order to
optimize dryness.
