Vent blockage test
After the dryer is installed, start the Vent Blockage Test to check if the duct system is
properly installed. The Vent Blockage Test automatically detects the status of the ducts
and reports any blockage or problems. Proper ducting can reduce drying time and save
energy.
NOTE
The Vent Blockage Test must run with the dryer in a cool state. If the dryer warms up
after the installation check, run the AIR FLUFF cycle for several minutes to reduce its
internal temperature.
Installation
Running the vent blockage test
1.
Make sure the drum is empty, and then close the door.
(If there are any clothes or other items in the drum, the test will not give accurate
results.)
2.
Press the POWER button to turn the dryer on, then simultaneously press and hold the
Adjust Time
and Dry level buttons for 3 seconds. “InS” appears in the dryer’s
display. (If you have started other procedures before the Vent Blockage Test, the
dryer will not enter the Vent Blockage Test mode.)
3.
Press the START/PAUSE button. The Vent Blockage Test starts immediately. During the
test, the number indicator makes a circle in 6 clockwise steps. The test takes about 2
minutes. Do not open the door during the test.
4.
After 2 minutes, when the test is complete, the results is displayed and the dryer
sounds a tone.
If status of the duct system is normal, “0” appears and the dryer sounds a completion
tone.
If the duct system can not exhaust properly, “CLg” appears and the dryer sounds an
alarm tone.
If there are any other problems, an information code appears in the display. For
information about the code, see Information codes section on page 46.
• To stop or cancel the Vent Blockage Test, press the POWER button to turn off your
dryer.

Exhaust ducting guide
Ducting
1.
Make sure the dryer is installed properly so the air exhausts freely.
2.
Use 4-inch rigid metal ducts. Tape all joints including the dryer connection.
Never use lint-trapping screws.
3.
To facilitate the exhaust, keep the ducts as straight as possible.
Cleaning
Clean all old ducts before installing the dryer, and make sure the vent flap opens and
closes freely. We recommend that you clean the exhaust system annually or on a regular
basis.
WARNING
•
•
•
•
To prevent fire, do not use plastic, thin-foil, or non-metal flexible ducts of any kind.
Do not use a poor exhaust system because it slows down the dryer’s performance.
Do not use excessively long ducts that have multiple elbows.
Do not use crushed or clogged venting or ducts.

Installation
•
During or after the test, the internal drum is hot. Use caution to prevent burns.
The Vent Blockage Test is used to check for problems to the current duct system when
the dryer is installed for the first time.
If the test result displays “CLg” (the duct system is blocked ), refer to the “Ducting
requirements” section on page 17 and the “Exhaust ducting guide” section below, and
then take proper measures to correct any problems.
If the test is suspended, it could result in incorrect results. Follow the proper
procedures when testing the dryer.
Even if the test result is normal (“0”), the duct system could be blocked slightly.
Properly install all duct work according to the installation instructions in this manual.

action, resulting in uneven drying and
wrinkling.
Unless recommended on the care label,
do not dry woolens or fiberglass items.
Avoid drying unwashed items.
Do not dry items soiled with oil, alcohol,
gasoline, etc.
Lint filter
To prevent a risk of fire, make sure to
clean the lint filter before or after every
load.
A
1.
Turn off the dryer.
2.
Open the door, and pull out the lint
filter (A) from inside the tumbler.
3.
Open the lint filter by separating it
at the top. Remove the lint that has
accumulated, and then clean the lint
filter.
4.
Close the lint filter, reinsert the lint
filter into the dryer, and then close the
dryer door.
CAUTION
•
•
Do not operate the dryer without the
lint filter in place.
Do not use a damaged or broken lint
filter. This may reduce performance
and/or cause fire.

Checkpoints
If the dryer operates abnormally, first check the list of problems in the table below and
try the suggested actions.

Check your home’s circuit breakers or fuses.
Some cycles do not require heat. Check the selected cycle
again.
Clean the lint filter and exhaust duct.
The dryer may have moved into the cool-down phase of the
cycle.
Check all of the above, plus...
Make sure the exhaust hood outside your home can open and
close freely.
Check the exhaust system for lint buildup. Ducting should be
inspected and cleaned annually.
Use a 4” rigid metal exhaust duct.
Do not overload. 1 wash load = 1 dryer load.
Dry heavy items and light weight items separately.
Large, bulky items, such as blankets or comforters, may
require repositioning to ensure even drying.
Make sure that your washer is draining properly and
extracting adequate water from the load.
The load may be too small to tumble properly. Add a few
towels and restart the dryer.
The load may be too large to tumble properly. Remove some
items and restart the dryer.
Clean the lint filter.

•
•
Make sure the door is latched shut.
Make sure the power cord is plugged into a live electrical
outlet.
Check your home’s circuit breakers or fuses.
Press or tap START/PAUSE again if the door was opened
during a cycle.
Clean the lint filter.
Troubleshooting
Problem
Is noisy.
Action
•
Check the load for objects such as coins, loose buttons, nails,
etc. Remove promptly.
•
It is normal to hear the dryer gas valve or heating element
cycle on and off during the drying cycle.
Make sure the dryer is leveled properly as outlined in the
installation instructions.
It is normal for the dryer to hum due to the high velocity of
air moving through the dryer drum, fan, or exhaust system.
•
•
•
Dries unevenly.
•
•
•
Has odors.
•
Troubleshooting
•
•
•
Lint on clothes.
•
•
•
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. You can choose
a higher dryness level or a cycle that involves a higher
dryness level.
If one heavy item is dried with a light weight 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.
For the best drying results, dry heavy items and light weight
items separately.
Household odors from paint, varnish, 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, completely ventilate the
room before using the dryer.
Use a cycle featuring the Refresh function. If odors persist,
wash and dry the items again.
Make sure the lint filter is cleaned before every load. For
clothes that naturally build up lint, clean the filter during the
cycle.
Some fabrics are lint producers (for example, a fuzzy white
cotton towel) and they must be dried separately from clothes
that are lint trappers (for example, a pair of black linen
pants).
Divide larger loads into smaller loads for drying.
Check pockets thoroughly before drying, then dry clothes.
Remove lint inside the drum before drying a load.

•
•
Small loads of 1 to 4 items work best.
Load fewer items. Load similar-type items.
Take out the items immediately after drying is complete.
•
This is steam condensation. The dripping water will stop after
a short time.
•
Sprayed water is difficult to see when the door is closed.
•
Sensor Dry automatically senses the moisture in the load
and shuts the dryer off when the selected dryness level is
reached.
The drying time can change according to the type and
amount of laundry. See the cycle chart for reference.
Water drips from
the nozzle when the
Steam cycles starts.
Sprayed water is not
visible during Steam
