safety instructions
Read all instructions before using the appliance.
To reduce the risk of fire or explosion:
WARNING
•
•
Do not dry items that have been previously cleaned, washed, soaked, or spotted with
gasoline, dry cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances. They
emit vapors that could ignite or explode. Any material that has been in contact with a
cleaning solvent or flammable liquids or solids should not be placed in 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, denatured
alcohol, gasoline, kerosene, some liquid household cleaners, some spot removers,
turpentine, waxes, and wax removers
Items containing foam rubber (may be labeled latex foam) or similarly textured rubberlike materials must not be dried on a heat setting. Heated foam rubber materials can,
under certain circumstances, produce fire by spontaneous combustion.
Do not allow children or pets to play on, in, or in front of the appliance. Close supervision is
necessary when the appliance is used near children and pets.
Before discarding or removing your dryer from service, remove the door to the drying
compartment to prevent children or animals from becoming trapped inside.
Do not reach into the appliance when the drum is moving.
Do not install or store this appliance where it will be exposed to the weather.
Do not tamper with controls.
Do not repair, replace, or attempt to service any part of the appliance unless specifically
recommended in the user-repair instructions and you understand and have the skills to
carry those out.
Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static unless recommended for dryer
use by the manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
Clean the lint screen before or after each load.
Keep the area around the exhaust opening and surrounding areas free from lint, dust, and
dirt.

4_ Safety instructions
DV203AEW-02486A-01_EN.indd 4
2007-04-26 ø¿¿¸ 9:52:50
Gas leaks may occur in your system, resulting in a dangerous situation.
WARNING
Gas leaks may not be detected by smell alone.
Gas suppliers recommend you purchase and install a UL-approved gas detector.
Install and use in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Do not place items in your dryer that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable oil or
cooking oil. Even after being washed, these items may contain significant amounts of these
oils.
The residual oil can ignite spontaneously. The potential for spontaneous combustion
increases when the items containing vegetable oil or cooking oil are exposed to heat. Heat
sources such as your dryer can warm these items, allowing an oxidation reaction in the
oil to occur. Oxidation creates heat. If this heat cannot escape, the items can become hot
enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking, or storing these kinds of items may prevent heat from
escaping and can create a fire hazard.
All washed and unwashed fabrics that contain vegetable oil or cooking oil can be
dangerous. Washing these items in hot water with extra detergent will reduce, but not
eliminate, the hazard. Always use the Cool Down cycle for these items to reduce their
temperature. Never remove these items from the dryer hot or interrupt the drying cycle until
the items have run through the Cool Down cycle. Never pile or stack these items when they
are hot.

•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Use a 4-inch (10.2 cm) diameter rigid aluminum or rigid galvanized steel duct.
Do not use a smaller duct.
Ducts larger than 4 inches (10.2 cm) in diameter can result in increased lint accumulation.
Lint accumulation should be cleaned regularly.
If a flexible metal duct must be used, use the type with a stiff sheet metal wall. Do not use a flexible duct
with a thin foil wall. Serious blockage can result if the flexible metal duct is bent too sharply.
Never install any type of flexible duct in walls, ceilings, or other concealed spaces.
Keep the exhaust duct as straight and short as possible.
Secure joints with duct tape. Do not use screws.
DO NOT EXHAUST DRYER INTO ANY WALL, CEILING, CRAWL SPACE, OR CONCEALED SPACE OF
A BUILDING, GAS VENT, OR ANY OTHER COMMON DUCT OR CHIMNEY.
THIS COULD CREATE A FIRE HAZARD FROM LINT EXPELLED BY THE DRYER.
Plastic flexible duct can kink, sag, be punctured, reduce airflow, extend drying times, and affect dryer
operation.
Exhaust systems longer than recommended can extend drying times, affect machine operation, and
may collect lint.
The exhaust duct should end with an exhaust hood with a swing-out damper to prevent back drafts and
entry of wildlife. Never use an exhaust hood with a magnetic damper.
The hood should have at least 12 inches (30.5 cm) of clearance between the bottom of the hood and
the ground or other obstruction. The hood opening should point down.
Never install a screen over the exhaust outlet.
To avoid lint buildup, do not exhaust the dryer directly into a window well. Do not exhaust under a house
or porch.
If exhaust ductwork must run through an unheated area, the duct should be insulated and slope slightly
down towards the exhaust hood to reduce condensation and lint buildup.
Inspect and clean the interior of the exhaust system at least once a year. Unplug the power cord before
cleaning.
Check frequently to be sure the exhaust hood damper opens and closes freely.
Check once per month, and clean at least one time per year. Note: If clothes are not getting dry, then
check ducting for obstructions.

operating Instructions, tips
CLEAN THE LINT FILTER
•
•
•
After each load.
To shorten drying time.
To operate more energy efficiently.
Do not operate your Dryer without the lint filter in place.
LOAD THE DRYER PROPERLY
•
•
•
•
Place only one washload in your Dryer at a time.
Mixed loads of heavy and lightweight fabrics will dry differently, which may result in lightweight fabrics
being dry while heavy fabrics remaining damp at the end of a drying cycle.
Add one or more similar items to your Dryer when only one or two articles need drying.
This improves the tumbling action and drying efficiency.
Overloading restricts tumbling action, resulting in uneven drying as well as excessive wrinkling of some
fabrics.
GETTING STARTED
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Load your Dryer loosely – DO NOT overload.
Close the door.
Select the appropriate cycle and options for the load (see pages B-2, B-3).
Press the Start/Pause button.
The Dryer indicator light will illuminate.
The estimated cycle time will appear in the display.
The time may fluctuate to better indicate drying time remaining in the cycle.

care and cleaning
CONTROL PANEL
TUMBLER
Remove any stains such as crayon, ink, or fabric dye (from new items such as towels or jeans) with an allpurpose cleaner.
Tumble old towels or rags to remove any excess stain or cleaning substance.
Once these steps are done, stains may still be visible, but should not transfer to subsequent loads.
03 Care and cleaning
Clean with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use abrasive substances.
Do not spray cleaners directly on the panel.
The control panel finish may be damaged by some laundry pre-treatment soil and stain remover products.
Apply such products away from your Dryer and wipe up any spills or overspray immediately.
STAINLESS STEEL TUMBLER
To clean the stainless steel tumbler, use a damp cloth with a mild, non-abrasive cleaner suitable for stainless
steel surfaces.
Remove the cleaner residue and dry with a clean cloth.
DRYER EXTERIOR
Clean with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use abrasive substances.
Protect the surface from sharp objects.
DRYER EXHAUST SYSTEM
Should be inspected and cleaned yearly to maintain optimum performance.

special laundry tips
Please follow the care label or manufacturer’s instructions for drying special
items. If care label instructions are not available, use the following information as
a guide.
Bedspreads & Comforters
•
•
•
Blankets
•
•
Curtains & Draperies
•
•
Follow the care label instructions or dry on the Normal cycle and
High temperature.
Make sure the item is thoroughly dry before using or storing.

possible.
Cloth Diapers
•
Use the Normal cycle and the High temperature setting for soft, fluffy
diapers.
Down–filled Items (jackets,
sleeping bags, comforters,
etc.)
•
•
Use the Normal cycle and the Low or Extra Low temperature setting.
Place a clean pair of sneakers in your dryer with the item to fluff the
down comforters, etc. Adding a couple of dry towels shortens drying
time and absorbs moisture.
Foam Rubber (rug backs,
stuffed toys, shoulder pads,
etc.)
•
•
DO NOT dry on a heat setting. Use the Air Fluff cycle (no heat).
WARNING – Drying a rubber item with heat may damage it or be a

•
•
Seams, pockets, and other similarly heavy areas may not be
completely dry when the rest of the load has reached the selected
dryness level. This is normal. Select the More Dry setting if desired.
If one heavy item is dried with a lightweight load, such as one towel
with sheets, it is possible that the heavy item will not be completely
dry when the rest of the load has reached the selected dryness level.
Sort heavy items from lightweight items for best drying results.
Household odors from painting, varnishing, strong cleaners, etc.
may enter the dryer with the surrounding room air. This is normal as
the Dryer draws the air from the room, heats it, pulls it through the
tumbler, and exhausts it outside.
When these odors linger in the air, ventilate the room completely
before using the Dryer.
Dryer load is too small. Add more items or a few towels and restart
the cycle.
Dryer load is too large. Remove some items and restart the dryer.
