Frequently Answers and Questions

What should be done if gas is smelled ?
Do not turn on any gas or electrical appliances; do not light a match or cigarette. Call the gas supplier or fire department immediately from a neighbor's phone.
What is the recommended way to clean the lint filter?
Clean the lint filter before each load to prevent lint accumulation inside the dryer or in the room.
What specific items should not be placed in the dryer?
Items containing flammable materials, items exposed to cooking oils, rubber-coated items, items cleaned with combustible or explosive substances, and items labeled “Do Not Tumble Dry” should not be placed in the dryer.
What is the purpose of the Wrinkle Care feature?
The Wrinkle Care feature helps prevent wrinkles by periodically tumbling the clothes after the drying cycle is complete.
How often should the dryer's interior be cleaned?
The dryer's interior should be cleaned at least once a year by a qualified technician.
How does the automatic electric ignition work?
The automatic electric ignition eliminates the need for a pilot light. It turns on when the dryer starts and ensures safe ignition without the use of a match.
