About the dryer features.
Sensor Dry
Sensor Dry
This feature is active in all cycles except
Timed Dry, Warm Up and Air Fluff.
The Sensor Dry provides greater drying
accuracy than standard machines, resulting
in shorter dry times and better clothes
care. As the clothes tumble, they touch a
moisture sensor. The sensor will stop the
heating cycle as soon as the clothes have
reached the selected dryness.
This dryer will adjust the initial estimated
drying time of the sensor dry cycles as it
“learns” its installation and usage profile.
Please allow several weeks for the dryer to
customize itself to “you”.
Drum Light
The drum light is an LED light. Replacement
must be done by a qualified technician.
Drying Rack (on some models)
A handy drying rack may be used for drying
delicate items such as washable sweaters.
Hook the rack over the lint filter so
the rack extends into the dryer drum.
NOTE:
„ The drying rack must be used with the
Timed Cycle.
„ Do not use this drying rack when there
are other clothes in the dryer.
Alloy Steel Drum (on some models)
The alloy steel used to make the
dryer drum provides the highest reliability
available in a GE dryer. If the dryer drum
should be scratched or dented during normal
8
use, the drum will not rust or corrode. These
surface blemishes will not affect the function
or durability of the drum.

About loading and using the dryer.
Always follow the fabric manufacturer’s care label when laundering.
Sorting and Loading Hints
As a general rule, if clothes are sorted properly for
the washer, they are sorted properly for the dryer.
Do not overload. This wastes energy and causes
wrinkling.
Do not add fabric softener sheets once the load
has become warm. They may cause fabric
softener stains. Bounce ® Fabric Conditioner
Dryer Sheets have been approved for use in all
GE Dryers when used in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions.
Do not dry the following items: fiberglass items,
woolens, rubber-coated items, plastics, items with
plastic trim and foam-filled items.

Care and Cleaning of the Dryer
The Exterior: Wipe or dust any spills or washing
compounds with a damp cloth. Dryer control
panel and finishes may be damaged by some
laundry pretreatment soil and stain remover
products. Apply these products away from the
dryer. The fabric may then be washed and dried
normally. Damage to your dryer caused by these
products is not covered by your warranty.
The Lint Filter: Clean the lint filter before each use.
Remove by pulling straight up. Run your fingers
across the filter. A waxy buildup may form on the
lint filter from using dryer added fabric softener
sheets.
To remove this buildup, wash the lint screen in
warm, soapy water. Dry thoroughly and replace.
Do not operate the dryer without the lint filter in
place.
Vacuum the lint from the dryer lint filter area if you
notice a change in dryer performance.
Stainless Steel: To clean stainless steel surfaces,
use a damp cloth with a mild, non-abrasive cleaner
suitable for stainless steel surfaces. Remove the
cleaner residue, and then dry with a clean cloth.
Dryer Interior and Duct: The interior of the appliance
and exhaust duct should be cleaned once a year by
qualified service personnel.
The Exhaust Duct: Inspect and clean the exhaust
ducting at least once a year to prevent clogging.
A partially clogged exhaust can lengthen the
drying time.
Follow these steps:
1 Turn off electrical supply by disconnecting
the plug from the wall socket.
2 Disconnect the duct from the dryer.
3 Vacuum the duct with the hose attachment
and reconnect the duct.
The Exhaust Hood: Check from the outside that
the flaps of the hood move freely when operating.
Make sure that there is not wildlife (birds, insects,
etc.) nesting inside the duct or hood.

About venting the dryer.
GEAppliances.com
For the best drying performance, the dryer needs to be properly vented. The dryer
will use more energy and run longer if it is not vented to the below specifications.
Carefully follow the details on Exhausting in the Installation Instructions.
„ Use only rigid metal 4” diameter ductwork inside the dryer cabinet. Use only rigid metal or
UL listed flexible metal 4” diameter ductwork for exhausting to the outside.
„ Do not use plastic or other combustible ductwork.
„ Use the shortest length possible.
„ Do not crush or collapse.
„ Avoid resting the duct on sharp objects.
„ Venting must conform to local building codes.
WARNING
- Fire Hazard
This dryer MUST be exhausted to the outdoors.
Use only 4” rigid metal ducting for the home exhaust duct.
Use only 4” rigid metal or UL-listed dryer transition duct to connect the dryer
to the home exhaust.
DO NOT use a plastic vent.
DO NOT exhaust into a chimney, kitchen exhaust, gas vent, wall, ceiling,
attic, crawl space, or concealed space of a building.
DO NOT install a screen in or over the exhaust duct.
DO NOT use duct longer than specified in the exhaust length table.

Problem
Possible Causes
What To Do
Clothes take too long
to dry
Improper sorting
• Separate heavy items from lightweight items (generally,
a well-sorted washer load is a well-sorted dryer load).
Large loads of heavy fabrics
(like beach towels)
• Large, heavy fabrics contain more moisture and take
longer to dry. Separate large, heavy fabrics into smaller
loads to speed drying time.
Controls improperly set
• Match control settings to the load you are drying.
Lint filter is full
• Clean lint filter before every load.
Improper or obstructed
ducting
• Check installation instructions for proper
ducting/venting.
• Make sure ducting is clean, free of kinks and
unobstructed.
• Check to see if outside wall damper operates easily.
• Check the Installation Instructions to make sure the
dryer venting is correct.
Blown fuses or tripped
circuit breaker
• Replace fuses or reset circuit breakers. Since most dryers
use 2 fuses/breakers, make sure both are operating.
Overloading/combining loads
• Do not put more than one washer load in the dryer at
a time.
Under-loading
• If you are drying only one or two items, add a few items
to ensure proper tumbling.
Over-drying
• Select a shorter drying time.
• Remove items while they still hold a slight amount of
moisture. Select a Less Dry or Damp Dry setting.
Letting items sit in dryer
after cycle ends
• Remove items when cycle ends and fold or hang
immediately.
