49-3000244 Rev 1

Care and Cleaning

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 with a mirror that the inside flaps of the hood move freely when operating. Make sure that there is no wildlife (birds, insects, etc.) nesting inside the duct or hood.

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.

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.

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

NEVER OPERATE THE DRYER WITHOUT ITS FILTER IN PLACE.

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.

The stainless steel used to make the dryer drum provides the highest reliability available in a GE Appliances dryer.

If the dryer drum should be scratched or dented during normal use, the drum will not rust or corrode. These surface blemishes will not affect the function or durability of the drum.

Drum Light

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

Dryer doesn’t start

No numbers displayed during cycle, only lights

Time Remaining jumped to a lower number

Cannot make a selection and the dryer beeps twice

Dryer is running but 00 is displayed in

Time Remaining

Possible Cause

Some shaking/noise is normal.

Dryer may be sitting unevenly.

Improper or obstructed ducting

Improper sorting

Large loads of heavy fabrics

(like beach towels)

Controls improperly set

Lint filter is full

Blown fuses or tripped circuit breaker

What To Do

Move dryer to an even floor space, or adjust leveling legs as necessary until even.

Check the Installation Instructions to make sure the dryer venting is correct.

Make sure ducting is clean, free of kinks and unobstructed.

Check to see if outside wall damper operates easily.

Separate heavy items from lightweight items (generally, a well-sorted washer load is a well-sorted dryer load).

Large, heavy fabrics contain more moisture and take 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.

Replace fuses or reset circuit breakers. NOTE: Some electric dryers use 2 fuses/breakers, make sure both are operating.

Overloading/combining loads Do not put more than one washer load in the dryer at a time.

Underloading ecoDry is enabled

If you are drying only one or two items, add a few items to ensure proper tumbling.

The ecoDry feature is designed to operate your dryer in the most energy efficient mode, which is not always the fastest mode. In some instances, dry times may be extended to reduce overall energy usage for the cycle.

Load consists of a mixture of heavy and light fabrics

Exhaust system is blocked

Control panel is “asleep”

Dryer is unplugged

Fuse is blown/circuit breaker is tripped

Dryer was accidentally paused when starting Delay Dry

Dryer is continuously monitoring the amount of moisture in the clothes

When combining heavy and light fabrics in a load, choose Max

Dry.

Inspect and clean exhaust system.

This is normal. Press Power to activate the control panel.

Make sure the dryer plug is pushed completely into the outlet.

Check the building’s fuse/circuit breaker box and replace fuse or reset breaker. NOTE: Some electric dryers use two fuses/ breakers, make sure both are operating.

If the light on the Start/Pause button is flashing, the dryer is paused. Press Start/Pause to restart the countdown.

This is normal. When the dryer senses a low level of moisture in the load, the dryer will display the dry time remaining.

The estimated time may change when a smaller load than usual is drying

Troubleshooting Tips...

Before you call for service

Problem

Dryer doesn’t heat

Inconsistent drying times

Clothes are still wet and dryer shut off after a short time

Clothes are wrinkled

Possible Causes What To Do

Fuse is blown/circuit breaker is tripped; the dryer may tumble but not heat

Check the building’s fuse/circuit breaker box and replace both fuses or reset both breakers. Your dryer may tumble if only one fuse is blown or one breaker tripped. NOTE: Some electric dryers use 2 fuses/breakers, make sure both are operating.

Make sure gas shutoff at dryer and main shutoff are fully open.

Gas service is off (gas models only)

LP gas supply tank is empty or there has been a utility interruption of natural gas

(gas models only)

Refill or replace tank. Dryer should heat when utility service is restored.

No heat temperature selected Select another heat setting

Type of heat Drying time will vary according to the type of heat used. If you recently changed from an electric to a gas (natural or LP) dryer, or vice versa, the drying time could be different.

Type of load and drying conditions

The load size, types of fabric, wetness of clothes and the length and condition of the exhaust system will affect drying times.

A dry cycle must be reselected each time a new load is put in.

The door was opened mid-cycle. The load was then removed from the dryer and a new load put in without selecting a new cycle

Small load

Load was already dry except for collars and waistbands

Dryer is not level

When drying 3 items or less, choose QUICK DRY or TIMED DRY .

Choose QUICK DRY or TIMED DRY to dry damp collars and waistbands. In the future, when drying a load with collars and waistbands, choose More Dry .

Move dryer to an even floor space or adjust leveling legs as necessary until even.

Overdrying

Letting items sit in dryer after cycle ends

Overloading

Select a shorter drying time.

Remove items while they still hold a slight amount of moisture.

Select a Less Dry or Damp setting.

Remove items when cycle ends and fold or hang immediately, or use the Wrinkle Care option.

Separate large loads into smaller ones.

Clothes shrink Some fabrics will naturally shrink when washed. Others can be safely washed, but will shrink in the dryer.

To avoid shrinkage, follow garment care labels exactly.

Some items may be pressed back into shape after drying.

If you are concerned about shrinkage in a particular item, do not machine wash or tumble dry it.

Follow directions on fabric softener package.

Greasy spots on clothes

Improper use of fabric softener

Drying dirty items with clean ones

Clothes were not completely clean

Lint on clothes Lint filter is full

Improper sorting

Static electricity can attract lint

Overloading

Paper, tissue, etc., left in pockets

Use your dryer to dry only clean items. Dirty items can stain clean items and the dryer.

Sometimes stains which cannot be seen when the clothes are wet appear after drying. Use proper washing procedures before drying.

Clean lint screen before each load.

Sort lint producers (like chenille) from lint collectors (like corduroy).

See suggestions in this section under Static occurs .

Separate large loads into smaller ones.

Empty all pockets before laundering clothes.
