Gas appliauces eau cause minor exposure to four of these substances, namely benzene, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and soot, caused primaMy by the incomplete combustion of natural gas or LP fuels. Properly adjusted dryers will minimize incomplete combustion.

Exposure to these substances can be minimized flmher by properly venting the &yers to the outdoors.

--Locate where the temperature is above 50°E

(IO°C.)

for satisfactory operation of the dryer control system. Do not install or store the dryer where it will be exposed to the weather.

Connect to a properly rated, protected and sized power-supply circuit to avoid electrical overload.

Exhausting to the outside is

STRONGLY RECOMMENDED

to prevent large amounts of moisture aud lint from being blown into the room. Careflflly follow the

Exhausting Details in the Installation

Instructions.

• When discolmecting this appliance pull by the plug rather than the cord to avoid damage to the cord or junction of cord aim plug. Make sure that the cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over or otherwise subjected to damage or stress.

Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance or attempt any servicing unless specifically recommended in this Use and

Care Book or in published userrepair instructions that you understand and have the skills to carry out.

To minimize the possibility

of a fire hazard.

Do not use heat to dry articles containing rubber, plastic, or similar materials (such as padded bras, tennis shoes, galoshes, bath mats, rugs, bibs, baby pants, plastic bags, etc.) as these materials may melt or burn.

Also, some rubber materials, when heated, can under certain circumstances produce

fire by spontaneous combustion.

• Garments labeled "Dt3z Away

From Heat" (such as life jackets containing Kapok) must not be put in your dryer.

Do not wash or dry articles

that have been cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with combustible or explosive substances

(such as wax, paint, gasoline, degreasers, dry-cleaning solvents, kerosene, etc.) which may ignite or explode.

Do not use or store such substances on/or around your washer and/or dryer during operation.

Any article on which you have used a cleaning solvent, or which contains flammable materials

(such as cleaning cloths, mops,

towels used in beauty salons, restaurauts or barber shops, etc. ) must not be placed in or near the dryer until all traces of these flammable liquids or solids aud their tirades have been removed.

There are mauy highly flammable items used in homes such as: acetone, denatured alcohol, gasoline, kerosene, some household cleaners, some spot removers, turpeutiues, waxes, wax removers and products containing petroleum distillates.

Clean the lint filter before each load to prevent lint accumulation inside the dryer or in the room.

Dryer-a!_plied fabric softeners or anti-static conditioned

You may wish to soften your laundered fabrics or reduce the

static electricity in them. We recommend you use either a

fabric softener in the wash cycle, according to the manufacturer's instructions for those products, or try a dryer-added product for which the manufacturer gives written assurance on the package that their product can be safely used in your dryer.

Service or performance problems caused by the use of these products are the responsibility of the manufacturers of those products and are not covered under the warranty of this appliance.

Timed Drying

When using the TIMED CYCLES, you select the number of minutes you wish the &yer to run and it turns off at the end of this time period.

Automatic Drying

When using the Automatic Cycles, the Electronic Sensor Control

system continually senses the moisture in the tumbling clothes, determines when they are &led to your pre-selected setting, and terminates the cycle automatically.

Refer to the CONTROLS SETTING

GUIDE for recommended settings.

The Cycle Selector will not advance until clothes have reached a certain degree of dryness.

How to load the clothes

Don't overload your dryer.

Crowded loads don't dry efficiently and clothes may be ulmecessarily wrinkled.

Loads should look like this:

Clean the lint filter before drying every load.

Clean lint filter (see shaded area) by putting your moistened fingers at the corner of filter and wiping in a downward motion all the way across to the other corner.

Energy-Saving Tips

. Sort clothes by weight so you won't have to l"unan extra cycle for one or two heavier, slower-drying items.

See page 8.

• Do not overload &yer.

For efficient dlTing, clothes need to ramble freely.

• Use Automatic Drying Cycles whenever possible to help prevent overdying and to save energy.

• To help prevem ironing, use

Perm Press Medium Heat or

Knits!Delicates

Low Heat. Remove garments promptly at end of &ying cycle and place on hangers.

• Dry your clothes in consecutive loads• Using a "warm" &yer will save energy.

• Clean dryer lint filter each time you dry.

• Clean &yer exhaust ducting at least once a year. A partially clogged exhaust can lengthen &Ting time.

PROBLEM

SHRINKAGE,

KNITS

POSSIBLE CAUSE AND REMEDY

• Relaxation shrinkage can occur in knit fabrics that have been improperly stretched and elongated by tile manufacturer.

When this occurs, garment maybe pressed back into shape after each wash and dry cycle.

• Progressive or delayed shrinkage is caused when starch or sizing (in some fiabrics) is gradually removed by laundering.

Maybe noticed in older garments that have been laundered many times without previous shrinkage• Treat as for Relaxation Shrinkage above•

• Shrinkage caused by overheating occurs in certain knit fhbrics that have been heatshaped• When washing, &Ting or ironing temperatures exceed the temperatures used to shape set, shrinkage may occur. This cannot be corrected, but it call be prevented by washing in cold or warm water; &ying on low heat•

WRINKLING IN

PERMANENT PRESS

AND "NO-IRON"

ITEMS

• Leaving clothes in &yer after rambling stops• Remove clothes promptly and hang them immediately.

• Too many items in dryer. Dry only one washer load at a time. Do not combine loads•

• Too few items in dryer. If drying only one article, add two or more similar articles, even if dry, to insure proper rambling.

• Improper loads• Avoid laundering heavy Permanent Press items, such as work clothes, with lighter Pernlanent Press items, such as shirts or blouses• Do not wash or &Y

Permanent Press with regular laundry.

• Too many clothes in washer• Items must have room to move freely. Permanent Press loads should always be smaller than regular loads•• .no more than medium loads•

• Use of incorrect wash and dry cycles. Use Permanent Press Wash Cycle which provides a cool-down rinse to minimize wrinkling.

Also, use Permanent Press DU Cycle.

• Incorrect water level. Use large water level for medium load; medium level or half full for small load.

• Washing repeatedly in too hot water• Wash in cool or warm water with plenty of detergent•

PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSE AND REMEDY

WRINKLING IN

PERMANENT PRESS

AND "NO-IRON"

ITEMS (continued)

• Accumulation of lime scale due to use of carbonate detergents.

If you must use a non-phosphate detergent, avoid the use of a high-carbonate detergent.

• Failure to use thbric softener.

Proper use of thbric softener will minimize wrinkling.

To remove wrinkles:

• Retumble on "Permanent Press" setting.

• Rerinse and dry on "Permanent Press" setting.

• If unsuccessful, returnble on high heat for 10-12 minutes and hang immediately.

• Iron carefully.

• Send to dry cleaners for pressing.

• Some wrinkles may remain which cannot be removed.*

• NOTE:Ifyoufollowgoodlaundry procedures and Permanent Press clothes still come out wrinkled, the finish may not be good quality. Also, in permauent press symhetic/ cotton blends, the cotton portion of the fabric cau evemually wear away leaving only the symhetic.

Since it's the cotton portion which is treated for Permanent Press, a loss or decrease of Permanent Press performance will result.
