ENGLISH
Read all instructions before using this dryer.
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons when using this dryer, comply with the basic warnings listed below.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
Prevent Fire
Do not dry items that have been previously cleaned in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, cleaning solvents, kerosene, waxes, etc. Do
not store these items on or near the dryer. These substances give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in your dryer. Items contaminated with cooking oils may contribute to a chemical reaction that
could cause a load to catch fire.
Do not dry articles containing rubber, plastic or similar materials such as bras, galoshes, bath mats, rugs, bibs, baby pants, plastic
bags and pillows that may melt or burn. Some rubber materials, when heated, can under certain circumstances produce fire by spontaneous
combustion.
Clean the lint screen before or after each load. The interior of the dryer, lint screen housing and exhaust duct should be cleaned
approximately every 18 months by qualified service personnel. An excessive amount of lint build-up in these areas could result in inefficient drying and
possible fire. See Care and Cleaning.
Do not operate the dryer if the lint screen is blocked, damaged or missing. Fire hazard, overheating and damage to fabrics can occur. If
your dryer has a drying rack, always replace the lint screen when finished using the drying rack.
- Risk of Fire - A clothes dryer produces combustible lint. The dryer must be connected to an exhaust outdoors. Regularly inspect
the outdoor exhaust opening and remove any accumulation of lint around the outdoor exhaust opening and in the surrounding area.
Do not obstruct the flow of ventilating air. Do not stack or place laundry or throw rugs against the front or back of the dryer.
Do not spray any type of aerosol into, on or near dryer at any time.
Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static unless recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in fire, explosion, serious bodily injury and/or damage to the rubber or plastic parts of the dryer.
Protect Children
Do not allow children to play on or in the dryer. Close supervision of children is necessary when the dryer is used near children. As
children grow, teach them the proper, safe use of all appliances.
Destroy the carton, plastic bag and other packing materials after the dryer is unpacked. Children might use them for play. Cartons
covered with rugs, bedspreads or plastic sheets can become airtight chambers.
Keep laundry products out of children's reach. To prevent personal injury, observe all warnings on product labels.
Before the dryer is removed from service or discarded, remove the dryer door to prevent accidental entrapment.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
Prevent Injury
To prevent shock hazard and assure stability during operation, the dryer must be installed and electrically grounded by a qualified
service person in accordance with local codes. Installation instructions are packed in the dryer for the installer's reference. Refer to INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS for detailed grounding procedures. If the dryer is moved to a new location, have it checked and reinstalled by a qualified service
person.
To prevent personal injury or damage to the dryer, the electrical power cord of a gas dryer must be plugged into a properly grounded
and polarized 3-prong outlet. The third grounding prong must never be removed. Never ground the dryer to a gas pipe. Do not use an
extension cord or an adaptor plug.
ALWAYS disconnect the dryer from the electrical supply before attempting any service or cleaning. Failure to do so can result in
electrical shock or injury.
Do not use any type spray cleanser when cleaning dryer interior. Hazardous fumes or electrical shock could occur.
To prevent injury, do not reach into the dryer if the drum is moving. Wait until the dryer has stopped completely before reaching into
the drum.
To prevent injury and damage to the dryer:
•
All repairs and servicing must be performed by an authorized servicer unless specifically recommended in this Owner's Guide. Use only
authorized factory parts.
•
Do not tamper with controls.
•
Do not install or store the dryer where it will be exposed to the weather.
A thermal limiter switch automatically turns off the motor in the unlikely event of an overheated situation (electric dryers only). A service technician
must replace the thermal limiter switch after correcting the fault.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
Drying Procedures
• Follow the guidelines below for preparing the load for drying.
• Read the Operating Instructions card for operating your specific model.
• Always read and follow fabric care labels and laundry product labels.
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons, read Important
Safety Instructions before operating this dryer.
1.
Prepare items for drying.
•
Dry items of similar fabric, weight and construction in the same load.
•
Separate dark items from light-colored items. Separate items that shed lint from those
that attract lint. If an item sheds lint, turn it inside out.
•
Be sure buckles, buttons and trim are heatproof and won't damage the drum finish.
Close zippers, fasten hooks and Velcro®-like fasteners. Tie strings and sashes to prevent
snagging and tangling.
•
If possible, turn pockets inside out for even drying.
•
Check for stains which may not have been removed in washing. Dryer heat may
permanently set some stains. Repeat stain removal process before drying.
•
Place small items in a mesh bag to prevent tangling and for easy removal.
2.
Check that lint screen is clean and in place.
3.
Load the dryer.
•
The average load will fill the drum 1/3 to 1/2 full. Items need room to tumble freely for
even drying and less wrinkling. Do not overload dryer.
•
When drying large items, dry only 2 or 3 at a time. Fill out the load with small and
medium sized items.
•
For delicate or very small loads, add 2 lint-free towels for better drying, less wrinkling,
and to prevent grease stains caused by fabric softener sheets.
•
Do not overdry items. Overdrying can cause wrinkling, shrinkage, harshness, and a buildup of static electricity, which can produce more lint.
•
If desired, add a dryer fabric softener sheet.
4.
Close the dryer door and select the cycle, temperature, dryness level and options
desired. See Operating Instructions for your specific model information.
Follow fabric care label instructions.
5. Press START to begin the cycle.
•
To add or remove items when the dryer is running open the door. The dryer will stop
when the door is opened. Allow the drum to come to a complete stop before
reaching inside.
•
Close the door and press START to resume the cycle.
6. When the cycle ends, remove items immediately and hang or fold.
Features
End of Cycle Signal
A signal will sound at the end of the cycle and periodically during Press Saver at the volume level
selected. (some models)
Drum Light (some models)
A drum light will come on whenever the door is opened to illuminate the dryer drum during
loading and unloading. Closing the door turns off the light.
Reversible Dryer Door
Your dryer is equipped with a reversible door. The door can be hinged on the right or left side.
Refer to the INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for directions on changing the door.
Drying Rack (some models)
Use the drying rack to dry items which should not be tumble dried.
1. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen.
2. Insert drying rack into the dryer drum. Place the front bar under the lip of the lint screen
opening.
3. Place items to be dried on top of the rack. Weight should not exceed 10 lbs. Leave space
between items, but do not let items hang over the sides or through the grids. Do not
tumble other items when using the drying rack.
4. Select Timed Dry. Use only the Air Fluff/No Heat option for items containing plastic, foam
rubber, rubber-like materials, feathers or down.
5. When items are dry, remove the rack and replace the lint screen. If lint screen is not in
place, tumbling items could enter the exhaust system and cause damage to the dryer.

Care and Cleaning
To reduce risk of fire or serious injury to persons or property, comply with
the basic warnings listed in Important Safety Instructions and those listed below.
•
Before cleaning the dryer interior, unplug the electrical power cord to avoid
electrical shock hazards.
•
Do not use any type spray cleanser when cleaning dryer interior. Hazardous fumes or
electrical shock could occur.
Inside
•
Clean the lint screen after every load. Lint build-up in the screen restricts air flow,
which causes longer drying times. The screen is located at the bottom of the door
opening. Remove by pulling straight up. Remove the lint and replace the screen.
CAUTION - Risk of Fire - A clothes dryer produces combustible lint. The dryer must
be connected to an exhaust outdoors. Regularly inspect the outdoor exhaust
opening and remove any accumulation of lint around the outdoor exhaust opening
and in the surrounding area.
Clean lint screen after every load.
Occasionally a waxy build-up may form on the lint screen from using dryer-added
fabric softener sheets. To remove this build-up, wash the lint screen in warm, soapy
water. Dry thoroughly and replace. Do not operate the dryer without the lint screen in
place.
•
If the dryer drum becomes stained from noncolorfast fabrics, clean the drum with a
damp cloth and a mild liquid household cleanser. Remove cleanser residue before
drying the next load.
•
Every 18 months an authorized servicer should clean the dryer cabinet interior and
exhaust duct. These areas can collect lint and dust over time. An excessive amount of
lint build-up could result in inefficient drying and possible fire hazard.
Outside
•
Clean the cabinet with mild soap and water. Never use harsh, gritty or abrasive
cleansers.
Do not store or place laundry products
on top of dryer at any time. They can
damage the finish or controls.
•
If the cabinet becomes stained, clean with diluted chlorine bleach [1/2 cup
(120 ml) in 1 quart (.95 liter) water]. Rinse several times with clear water.
•
Remove glue residue from tape or labels with a mixture of warm water and mild
detergent. Or, touch residue with the sticky side of the tape or label.
•
Before moving the dryer, place a strip of cardboard or thin fiberboard under the
front leveling legs to prevent damage to floor.
