Part No. D516891EN
Safety Information
• Remove laundry immediately after the dryer stops.
• DO NOT operate the dryer if it is smoking, grinding or has
missing or broken parts or removed guards and/or panels.
DO NOT tamper with the controls or bypass any safety devices.
• DO NOT operate individual units if they have been separated from a stack unit.
• Dryer will not operate with the loading door open. DO NOT
bypass the door safety switch by permitting the dryer to operate with the door open. The dryer will stop tumbling when
the door is opened. Do not use the dryer if it does not stop
tumbling when the door is opened or starts tumbling without pressing the START mechanism. Remove the dryer from
use and call the service person.
• ALWAYS clean the lint filter after every load. A layer of lint in
the filter reduces drying efficiency and prolongs drying
time. Keep area around the exhaust opening and adjacent
surrounding area free from the accumulation of lint, dust
and dirt. The interior of the dryer and the exhaust duct
should be cleaned periodically by qualified service personnel.
• Do not repair or replace any part of the dryer, or attempt
any servicing unless specifically recommended in the usermaintenance instructions or in published user-repair instructions that you understand and have the skills to carry
out. ALWAYS disconnect the electrical power to the dryer
before attempting service. Disconnect the power cord by
grasping the plug, not the cord.
• Electric Models: If supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a special cord or assembly available from the
manufacturer or its service agent.
• Gas Models: If supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced
by the manufacturer, its service agent or similarly qualified
persons in order to avoid a hazard.
• Before the dryer is removed from service or discarded, remove the door to the drying compartment.
• Failure to install, maintain, and/or operate this machine
according to the manufacturer’s instructions may result in
conditions which can produce bodily injury and/or property
damage.
NOTE: The WARNING and IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS appearing in this manual are not meant
to cover all possible conditions and situations that may
occur. Observe and be aware of other labels and precautions that are located on the machine. They are intended to provide instruction for safe use of the machine. Common sense, caution and care must be exercised when installing, maintaining, or operating the
dryer.
Always contact your dealer, distributor, service agent or the
manufacturer about any problems or conditions you do not understand.

Before Drying
Before Drying
1. Sort by color.
2. Separate lint shedding fabrics and lint receiving fabrics.
Towels, flannels, chenille, cottons, rugs, etc., shed lint. Corduroys, knits (including socks), permanent press, and synthetics attract lint.
3. Separate no heat, low heat and high heat items.
Energy Saving Tips
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Make sure the lint filter is always clean.
Do not overload the dryer.
Do not overdry items.
Remove items to be ironed while still damp.
Large loads of similar fabrics dry the most efficiently. However, dry permanent press in smaller loads to prevent wrinkling.
Use the correct cycle for the type of fabric being dried.
Locate your dryer so the exhaust duct is as short and
straight as possible.
Do not open the door during the drying cycle.
Plan to do your laundry on low humidity days; your clothes
will dry faster.
Dry multiple loads of clothes one right after another so dryer interior does not have to be reheated for each load.
In any kind of drying, lightweight fabrics will dry faster than
heavyweight fabrics. If mixed loads are dried together (such as
sheets and towels), remove the lighter weight fabrics when
they are dry to prevent overdrying and wrinkling. The best
method is to dry clothes which require the same time, temperature or dryness level in the same load.
Load
WARNING
Do not wash or dry items soiled with vegetable or
cooking oils. Some oils may remain after washing
and may cause the fabric to catch on fire by itself.
Helps and Hints
WARNING
W527
• Do not overload your dryer. Bulk, not weight, determines
the load size. If the dryer is overloaded, it could cause discoloration or permanent heat damage to the load.
• There should be space in the dryer for the clothes to tumble freely and help to reduce wrinkles.
• Large and small pieces together make up loads which will
tumble well. Permanent press loads should be smaller to
provide room for tumbling. Proper tumbling allows for fewer
wrinkles.
• A load can be too small. Just a few small pieces will not
tumble properly. They will take longer to dry and they may
be wrinkled. For small loads, add a couple of large towels
or non lint shedding items to aid in tumbling.
• The following illustrations show the ideal load sizes for fabrics. The average load will fill the cylinder one third to half
full when wet.
To reduce the risk of fire, explosion, serious injury or
death, clothes which have traces of any flammable
substances such as cooking oil, machine oil, flammable chemicals, thinner, etc. must not be put into
the dryer.
W131
• The directions for installation and proper exhausting are
given in the Installation Instructions which are included
with the dryer.
• Static electricity may cause garments of synthetic fibers (as
in lingerie) to cling together, especially if they are overdried.
The use of a liquid fabric softener in the rinse water of the
washer, or a fabric softener sheet in the dryer, will soften
clothes and reduce static electricity.
• Do not wash or dry clothes that shed lint in the same load
with permanent press or knit garments.
• Remove permanent press loads immediately after dryer
stops.
• Follow the care labels on FLAME RETARDANT, SCOTCHGUARD™, etc., garments for proper washing and drying.
• If loads should be damp for ironing, use the Damp Dryness
setting, in an Automatic cycle.

• Check if motor overload protector has cycled. Wait 10 minutes and try again.
Dryer won’t heat
• Electric dryers only – Some homes may have two fuses or
circuit breakers for an electric dryer; both fuses or circuit
breakers should be checked. Make sure the laundry room
fuse(s) isn’t blown or loose, or that the circuit breakers
aren’t open.
• Make sure control is not in Cooling part of cycle, Extended
LED is lit, or that the Temp selection is not set to No Heat.
• Gas dryer only – Make sure equipment and main gas line
valve is turned on.
• Check exhaust duct to outside to see if it is kinked, blocked
or needs cleaning.
• Check weather hood to make sure flapper moves freely,
has not been pushed in or has not been blocked.
Dryer doesn’t dry clothes satisfactorily
• Check exhaust duct to outside to see if it is kinked, blocked
or needs cleaning.
• Check weather hood to make sure flapper moves freely,
has not been pushed in or has not been blocked.
• Auto-Sensing cycle – Adjust Dryness selection.
• Manual cycle - Allow more or less time.
• Clean the lint filter.
• Make sure the load isn’t too small. Small loads may not
tumble properly or dry evenly.
• Check load being dried. Heavy items dried with lightweight
items will not dry as quickly as the rest of the load.
• Refer to Sort section for proper sorting information.

Troubleshooting
Dryer Symptom
Possible Cause/Solution
Dryer is noisy
• Check dryer for foreign objects (nails, coins, bobby pins,
metal, plastic toys, etc.). Remove items from dryer.
• Make sure dryer is level. Uneven leveling can cause vibration.
• Normal operating sounds include the heat source going on
and off and the humming of air moving through the dryer
and exhaust system.
Clothes are too wrinkled
• Check heat setting. Overdrying can cause wrinkling.
• Check load size. Large loads may not tumble properly and
may cause wrinkling.
Clothes have odor
• Check room for odors before drying clothes. Any odor (fried
foods, paint, varnish, cleaners, burning wood, etc.) will
transfer to clothing as the dryer draws air from the room.
• Ventilate room before drying clothes.
Cycle advances too slowly
• When in an Auto-Sensing cycle, the time it takes depends
on the type and size of the load being dried. When clothing
has more moisture, the cycle takes longer than when the
clothes are more dry.
Er, ro on digital display
• The dryer’s motor overload protector has cycled.
• The control can be cleared by pressing the Start/Pause
button and the dryer can be restarted by pressing the
Start/Pause button again.
• If this code is displayed again, remove the dryer from use
and call a service person.
