About the dryer features.

Sensor Dry

Sensor Dry

This feature is active in all cycles except

Timed Dry , Warm Up and Air Fluff .

The Sensor Dry provides greater drying accuracy than standard machines, resulting in shorter dry times and better clothes care. As the clothes tumble, they touch a moisture sensor. The sensor will stop the heating cycle as soon as the clothes have reached the selected dryness.

This dryer will adjust the initial estimated drying time of the sensor dry cycles as it

“learns” its installation and usage profile.

Please allow several weeks for the dryer to customize itself to “you”.

Drum Light

The drum light is an LED light. Replacement must be done by a qualified technician.

Drying Rack

(on some models)

A handy drying rack may be used for drying delicate items such as washable sweaters.

Hook the rack over the lint filter so the rack extends into the dryer drum.

NOTE: n The drying rack must be used with the

Timed Cycle .

n Do not use this drying rack when there are other clothes in the dryer.

Alloy Steel Drum

(on some models)

The alloy steel used to make the dryer drum provides the highest reliability available in a

GE Appliances dryer.

If your model did not come with a drying rack, order one on-line at GEApplianceparts.com

today, 24 hours a day or by phone at

Sorting and Loading Hints

WARNING

WARNING - Fire Hazard

Fire Hazard

• Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away from dryer.

• DO NOT dry anything that has ever had anything flammable on it (even after washing).

• No washer can completely remove oil.

As a general rule, if clothes are sorted properly for the washer, they are sorted properly for the dryer. Try also to sort items according to size. For example, do not dry a sheet with socks or other small items.

• DO NOT dry anything that has ever had any type of oil on it (including cooking oils).

• Items containing foam, rubber, or plastic must be dried on a clothesline.

• Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.

Do not add fabric softener sheets once the load has become warm. They may cause fabric softener stains.

Bounce ® Fabric Conditioner Dryer Sheets have been approved for use in this dryer when used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

Do not overload.

This wastes energy and causes wrinkling.

Care and Cleaning of the Dryer.

The Exterior: Wipe or dust any spills or washing compounds with a damp cloth. Dryer control panel and finishes may be damaged by some laundry pretreatment soil and stain remover products. Apply these products away from the dryer. The fabric may then be washed and dried normally. Damage to your dryer caused by these products is not covered by your warranty.

The Lint Filter: Clean the lint filter before each use.

Remove by pulling straight up. Run your fingers across the filter. A waxy buildup may form on the lint filter from using dryer added fabric softener sheets.

To remove this buildup, wash the lint screen in warm, soapy water. Dry thoroughly and replace. Do not operate the dryer without the lint filter in place.

Vacuum the lint from the dryer lint filter area if you notice a change in dryer performance.

Stainless Steel: To clean stainless steel surfaces, use a damp cloth with a mild, non-abrasive cleaner suitable for stainless steel surfaces. Remove the cleaner residue, and then dry with a clean cloth.

Dryer Interior and Duct: The interior of the appliance and exhaust duct should be cleaned once a year by qualified service personnel.

The Exhaust Duct: Inspect and clean the exhaust ducting at least once a year to prevent clogging. A partially clogged exhaust can lengthen the drying time.

Follow these steps:

1

Turn off electrical supply by disconnecting the plug from the wall socket.

2

Disconnect the duct from the dryer.

3

Vacuum the duct with the hose attachment and reconnect the duct.

The Exhaust Hood: Check from the outside that the flaps of the hood move freely when operating. Make sure that there is not wildlife (birds, insects, etc.) nesting inside the duct or hood.

longer to dry. Separate large, heavy fabrics into smaller

loads to speed drying time.

• Match control settings to the load you are drying.

• Clean lint filter before every load.

• Check installation instructions for proper

ducting/venting.

• Make sure ducting is clean, free of kinks and

unobstructed.

• Check to see if outside wall damper operates easily.

• Check the Installation Instructions to make sure the

dryer venting is correct.

• Replace fuses or reset circuit breakers. Since most dryers

use 2 fuses/breakers, make sure both are operating.

• Do not put more than one washer load in the dryer at

a time.

• If you are drying only one or two items, add a few items

to ensure proper tumbling.

Clothes are wrinkled Over-drying
