California Safe Drinking WATER and Toxic Enforcement Act
This act requires the governor of California to publish a list of substances known to the state to cause cancer, birth
defects, or other reproductive harm and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such
substances.
Gas appliances can cause minor exposure to four of these substances, namely benzene, carbon monoxide,
formaldehyde, and soot, caused primarily by the incomplete combustion of natural gas or LP fuels.
Properly adjusted dryers will minimize incomplete combustion. Exposure to these substances can be minimized
further by properly venting the dryer to the outdoors.

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 ULlisted 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:
• Do not open the dryer door during steam cycles.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in a burn
hazard.
• Do not dry articles that have been previously
cleaned in, 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.
• Do not fill the steam feeder with gasoline, drycleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive
substances. Failure to follow these instructions can
result in fire or death.
• Do not touch the steam nozzle in the drum during
or after the steam cycle. Failure to follow these

dryer is not properly grounded. Have the 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
electric 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
sparkling 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 electric shock.
• Repair or replace immediately all power cords that
have become frayed or otherwise damaged. Do not
use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage
along its length or at either end. The power cord can
melt, creating an electric shock and/or fire hazard.
• When installing or moving the dryer, be careful not
to pinch, crush, or damage the power cord. This will
prevent injury and prevent damage to the dryer from
fire and electric shock.

Safety Standards Title 24 CFR, Part 3280 or Standard
CAN/CSA Z240 MH and local codes and ordinances. If
you are uncertain whether your proposed installation
will comply with these standards, please contact a
service and installation professional for assistance.
•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.
•D
O NOT vent the dryer under a manufactured home or
mobile home.
• E lectric dryers may be vented to the outside using the
back, left, right, or bottom panel.
•G
as 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.
•D
O NOT connect the dryer exhaust duct to any other

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 Installation Test (Duct
Check) on the following page.
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 button 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.

During the test cycle, monitor the Flow Sense™
display on the control panel. If no bars are displayed,
when the cycle ends, the exhaust system is
adequate. If the exhaust system is severely restricted,
the display will show four bars. Other problems may
also be shown with error codes. Refer to the next
page for error code details and solutions.
NOTE
The dryer should be cool before starting this test. If
the dryer was warmed up during installation, run the
Air Dry cycle for a few minutes to reduce the interior

• R eset circuit breaker or replace fuse. Do not increase
the fuse capacity.
If the problem is a circuit overload, have it corrected
by a qualified electrician.
• House fuse is blown, circuit breaker has
tripped, or power outage has occurred.
• Check the duct condition
If the test displays four bars, check the exhaust system
for restrictions and damage. Repair or replace the
exhaust system as needed.
Restricted or blocked airflow
Avoid long runs or runs with multiple elbows or
bends.
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.
Do not interrupt the test cycle, as this could result in
the wrong results.
Even if no bars are displayed during the test cycle,
some restrictions may still be present in the exhaust
system. Refer to the Venting the Dryer section of
this manual for complete exhaust system and venting
requirements.

damage the door seal.
Clean the window with a soft cloth dampened with
warm water and a mild, nonabrasive household
detergent; then wipe dry.
2. Vacuum the lint filter, or
The stainless steel drum can be cleaned with a
conventional stainless steel cleaner, used according to
the manufacturer’s specifications.
Never use steel wool or abrasive cleansers; they can
scratch or damage the surface.
Cleaning around and under the dryer
Vacuum lint and dust from around the dryer and
underneath it regularly. Vent ductwork should be
checked for lint buildup and cleaned at least once per
year. If any noticeable reduction in airflow or drying
performance occurs, immediately check ductwork for
obstructions and blockages.
3. If the lint filter has become very dirty or clogged with
fabric softener, wash the lint filter in warm, soapy
water and allow to dry thoroughly before reinstalling.
Maintaining ductwork
Vent ductwork should be checked for lint buildup once
per month and cleaned at least once per year. If any
noticeable reduction in airflow or drying performance
occurs, immediately check ductwork for obstructions
and blockages. Contact a qualified technician or service
provider.
NOTE
NEVER operate the dryer without the lint filter in
place. NEVER operate the dryer with a wet lint filter.

• 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.
• Clean and dirty clothes being
dried together.
• Laundry not sorted properly.
• Excess static in clothes.
• Dryer is overloaded.
• Tissue, paper, etc., left in pockets.

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.
• Power cord connection is

Drying time is
not consistent
•H
eat 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.
• 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.
Clothes are
shrinking
• 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.
• 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.
• Water supply error.
• Check steam feeder drawer:
(1) Make sure steam feeder is filled with water to MAX line.
(2) Make sure steam feeder is seated properly and drawer is
fully closed.
(3) Turn the dryer off then restart the Steam cycle.
