CHECKING
YOUR VENT
Your dryer must be properly installed and vented to achieve
maximum drying efficiency and shorten drying times. Use the
minimum recommended installation clearances (found in your
Installation Instructions) to avoid blocking the flow of combustion
and ventilation air. Refer to your Installation Instructions for more
information.
DRYER USE
Starting Your Dryer
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from dryer.
Fire Hazard
Use a heavy metal vent.
Do not use a plastic vent.
Do not dry anything that has ever had anything
flammable on it (even after washing).
Failure to follow these instructions can result in
death, explosion, or fire.
Do not use a metal foil vent.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in
death or fire.
If the dryer is not properly installed and vented, it will not be
covered under the warranty.
NOTE: Service calls caused by improper venting will be paid for
by the customer, whether it was a paid installation or selfinstalled.
1. Do not use plastic vent or metal foil vent. Use 4 in. (10.2 cm)
metal or flexible metal vent. Do not kink or crush flexible
metal vent. It must be completely extended to allow adequate
exhaust air to flow. Check vent after installation. Refer to your
Installation Instructions for proper length requirements of
vent.
2. Use a 4 in. (10.2 cm) exhaust hood.
3. Use the straightest path possible when routing the vent.
Fire Hazard
No washer can completely remove oil.
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 or by using an Air Cycle.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in
death or fire.
4. Use clamps to seal all joints. Do not use duct tape, screws or
other fastening devices that extend into the interior of the
vent to secure vent.
5. Clean exhaust vent periodically, depending on use, but at
least every 2 years, or when installing your dryer in a new
location. When cleaning is complete, be sure to follow the
Installation Instructions supplied with your dryer for final
product check.
6
Before using your dryer, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth to
remove dust from storing and shipping.
1. Load clothes loosely into the dryer and close the door. Do not
pack the dryer. Allow space for clothes to tumble freely.
2. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the recommended cycle for
the type of load being dried. Use the Energy Preferred
Automatic Setting (*) to dry most heavyweight and medium
weight loads. See “Drying, Cycle and Temperature Tips.”
Loading
Load clothes loosely into the dryer. Do not pack the dryer. Allow
space for clothes to tumble freely. The following chart shows
examples of balanced loads that would allow for proper tumbling.
3. If your dryer has a Temperature selector, set it to the
recommended setting for the type of fabric being dried. See
“Cycles” for temperature suggestions.
NOTE: On some models, temperature is included in the cycle
selections.
4. (OPTIONAL) Your dryer may have an Extra Tumble selector.
When you are unable to remove a load from the dryer as soon
as it stops, wrinkles can form. The Extra Tumble feature
periodically tumbles, rearranges and fluffs the load without
heat to help avoid wrinkling.
■ Set the EXTRA TUMBLE selector to ON to tumble the
load without heat every few minutes up to 45 minutes
after the drying cycle ends. A signal will sound every few
minutes while Extra Tumble is running, if the Cycle Signal
is set to “On.”
■
Set the EXTRA TUMBLE selector to OFF if you do not
want to run this feature.
5. (OPTIONAL) Your dryer may have a Cycle Signal. The signal is
helpful when drying permanent press, synthetics, and other
items that should be removed from the dryer as soon as it
stops.
■ Set the CYCLE SIGNAL to ON if you want to run this
feature.

Drying, Cycle and Temperature Tips
Select the correct cycle and temperature for your load.
Cool Down tumbles the load without heat during the last few
minutes of all cycles to make the load easier to handle.
Drying tips
■
Follow care label directions when they are available.
■
If you use fabric softener sheets, use only ones labeled as
dryer safe. Follow package instructions.
■
Remove the load from the dryer as soon as tumbling stops to
reduce wrinkling. This is especially important for permanent
press, knits, and synthetic fabrics.
Cycle and temperature tips
■
Dry most loads using the Energy Preferred Automatic
Setting (*).
■
Use a High heat setting for drying heavyweight items such as
towels and work clothes.
■
Use a Low heat setting for drying lightweight items such as
lingerie, blouses, dresses, and some knits.
To stop your dryer
■
Open the dryer door or turn the Cycle Control knob to OFF.
NOTE: The Cycle Control knob should point to an Off area when
the dryer is not in use.
Use a no heat (air) setting for rubber, plastic or heat-sensitive
fabrics.
■
Line dry bonded or laminated fabrics.
■
The Cycle Signal is part of the Start button.
6. Push the START button.
Stopping and Restarting
You can stop your dryer any time during a cycle.
To restart your dryer
1. Close the door.
2. Select a new cycle and temperature (if desired).
3. Push START.
If you are unsure of the temperature to select for a load, select a
lower setting rather than a higher setting.
NOTE: If you have questions about drying temperatures for
various loads, refer to the care label directions.
7
CYCLES
This manual covers several different models. Your dryer may vary
from the model shown and may not have all of the cycles and
features described.
Timed Dry Cycle
Use this cycle to complete drying if items are still damp after the
automatic cycle.
Timed Dry is also useful for:
■ Heavyweight and bulky items, such as bedspreads and work
clothes and large loads that require a long drying time. Set
the Temperature selector, if available, to High heat or to a
setting that matches the care label directions.
■
Lightweight items, such as lingerie, blouses, and knits that
require a short drying time. Set the Temperature selector, if
available, to Low heat.
NOTE: On some models, temperature is included in the cycle
selections. Drying time and temperature will depend on your
dryer model.
Heavy Dry
Select this setting to evenly dry large or heavy items, such as
thick cotton bath towels or robes. Set the Temperature selector, if
available, to High heat.
Damp Dry
Cycle Control knob
Automatic Dry Cycle
Use this cycle to dry most loads. Your dryer uses an automatic
control that senses the moisture in the load and shuts off the
dryer when the selected dryness is reached. The Cycle Control
knob does not move until the load is almost dry. After the Cool
Down, the knob automatically turns to an Off area and tumbling
stops.
Dry most loads using the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (*).
When the cycle ends, check the dryness of the load.
■ If the load is drier than you like, select a setting closer to
Less Dry the next time you dry a similar load.
■
If the load is not as dry as you like, complete drying using the
Timed Dry cycle. The next time you dry a similar load, select a
setting closer to Very Dry.
Select this setting to dry items to a damp level or dry items that
do not require an entire drying cycle. Damp dry items such as
jeans (to prevent stiffness) or cotton clothes (to make pressing
easier). Set the Temperature selector, if available, to High heat or
to a setting that matches the care label directions.
Touch Up
Use this setting to remove wrinkles from items, such as clothes
packed in a suitcase or items wrinkled from being left in the dryer
too long. Set the Temperature selector, if available, to Low or
Medium heat, depending on the fabrics in your load.
No Heat Fluff Cycle
Use this cycle for items that require drying without heat, such as
rubber, plastic and heat-sensitive fabrics. See the chart for
examples of items that can be dried using an air cycle.
NOTE: Drying time with an automatic cycle varies according to
the type of fabric, size of load, and temperature setting. See
“Drying, Cycle and Temperature Tips.”
Towels
Select this setting to thoroughly dry extra heavy items such as
mattress pads and quilts or a load of towels. Set the Temperature
selector, if available, to High heat.
Extra Tumble
When you are unable to remove a load from the dryer as soon as
it stops, wrinkles can form. The EXTRA TUMBLE feature
periodically tumbles, rearranges and fluffs the load without heat
up to 45 minutes after the cycle ends to help avoid wrinkling. See
“Starting Your Dryer.”

When using an air cycle
■ Check to see that coverings are securely stitched.
■
Shake and fluff pillows by hand periodically during cycle.
■
Dry item completely. Foam rubber pillows are slow to dry.
Drying Rack
The drying rack is useful for machine drying items you would not
necessarily want to tumble dry or that you would normally line dry
(for example, sweaters).
If your model does not have a drying rack, you may purchase
one. For ordering information, please refer to the “Assistance or
Service” page of this manual. You may also contact the dealer
from whom you purchased your dryer.
To use the drying rack
1. Slide rear pegs into the dimples on the back wall of the dryer.
Lower the front legs to rest on the dryer opening.
DRYER CARE
Cleaning the Dryer Location
Keep dryer area clear and free from items that would obstruct the
flow of combustion and ventilation air.
2. Put the wet items on top of the rack. Leave space between
the items so air can reach all the surfaces. Close the door.
NOTE: Do not allow items to hang over the edge of the rack.
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from dryer.
3. Select a timed drying cycle and temperature, or an air cycle.
Items containing foam, rubber, or plastic must be dried on a
clothesline or by using an air cycle.
4. Push the START button.
NOTE: The rack must be removed for normal tumbling. Do not
use the automatic cycle with the drying rack.
This chart shows examples of items that can be rack-dried and
the suggested cycle, temperature setting, and drying time. Actual
drying time will depend on the amount of moisture items hold.

Failure to do so can result in death, explosion,
or fire.
Cleaning the Lint Screen
Every load cleaning
The lint screen is located on the top of the dryer. Clean it before
each load. A screen blocked by lint can increase drying time.
To clean
1. Pull the lint screen toward you. Roll lint off the screen with
your fingers. Do not rinse or wash screen to remove lint. Wet
lint is hard to remove.
2. Push the lint screen firmly back into place.
IMPORTANT:
■ Do not run the dryer with the lint screen loose, damaged,
blocked, or missing. Doing so can cause overheating and
damage to both the dryer and fabrics.
■
Some towels made of synthetic fibers and natural fibers
(polyester and cotton blends) may shed more lint than other
towels, causing your dryer’s lint screen to fill up faster. Be
sure to remove lint from the lint screen before and after drying
new towels.
■
If lint falls off the screen into the dryer during removal, check
the exhaust hood and remove the lint. See “Checking Your
Vent.”
9
As needed cleaning
Laundry detergent and fabric softener residue can build up on the
lint screen. This buildup can cause longer drying times for your
clothes, or cause the dryer to stop before your load is completely
dry. The screen is probably clogged if lint falls off the screen.
Clean the lint screen with a nylon brush every 6 months or more
frequently if it becomes clogged due to a residue buildup.
TROUBLESHOOTING
First try the solutions suggested here and possibly avoid
the cost of a service call...
Clothes are not drying satisfactorily
To wash
1. Roll lint off screen with your fingers.
2. Wet both sides of lint screen with hot water.
3. Wet a nylon brush with hot water and liquid detergent. Scrub
lint screen with the brush to remove residue buildup.
■
Is the exhaust vent or outside exhaust hood clogged with lint,
restricting air movement? Run the dryer for 5-10 minutes.
Hold your hand under the outside exhaust hood to check air
movement. If you do not feel air movement, clean exhaust
system of lint or replace exhaust vent with heavy metal or
flexible metal vent. See your Installation Instructions.
Is the exhaust vent crushed or kinked? Replace with heavy
metal or flexible metal vent. See your Installation Instructions.
4. Rinse screen with hot water.
5. Thoroughly dry lint screen with a clean towel. Insert lint
screen back into dryer.
Has a fuse blown, or a circuit breaker tripped? Electric dryers
use 2 household fuses or breakers. The drum may be turning,
but you may not have heat.
Cleaning the Dryer Interior
Has an air dry cycle been selected? Select the right cycle for
the types of garments being dried. See “Drying, Cycle and
Temperature Tips.”
To clean dryer drum
1. Make a paste with powdered laundry detergent and very
warm water.
2. Apply paste to a soft cloth.
OR
For gas dryers, is the valve open on the supply line?
Are fabric softener sheets blocking the grille? Use only one
fabric softener sheet, and use it only once.
■
Is the dryer located in a room with temperature below
45ºF (7ºC)?
Proper operation of dryer cycles requires temperatures above
45ºF (7ºC).
■
Was a cold rinse water used? Was the load very wet?
Expect longer drying times with items rinsed in cold water
and with items that hold moisture (cottons).
■
Is the load too large and heavy to dry quickly?
Separate the load to tumble freely.
Apply a liquid, non-flammable household cleaner to the
stained area and rub with a soft cloth until all excess dye is
removed.
3. Wipe drum thoroughly with a damp cloth.
4. Tumble a load of clean cloths or towels to dry drum.
NOTE: Garments which contain unstable dyes, such as denim
blue jeans or brightly colored cotton items, may discolor the
dryer interior. These stains are not harmful to your dryer and will
not stain future loads of clothes. Dry unstable dye items insideout to prevent dye transfer.
Removing Accumulated Lint
Check the following:
Is the lint screen clogged with lint?
Dryer will not run
■
Check the following:
Is the power cord plugged in?
From Inside the Dryer Cabinet
Has a fuse blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped?
Lint should be removed every 2 years, or more often, depending
on dryer usage. Cleaning should be done by a qualified person.
Was a regular fuse used? Use a time-delay fuse.
Is the dryer door firmly closed?
From the Exhaust Vent
Was the START button firmly pressed?
Lint should be removed every 2 years, or more often, depending
on dryer usage.
Is a cycle selected?
Unusual sounds
Changing the Drum Light
The dryer light automatically turns on inside the dryer drum when
you open the door.
To change the drum light
1. Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
2. Open the dryer door. Locate the light bulb cover on the back
wall of the dryer. Remove the screw located in the lower right
corner of the cover. Remove the cover.
3. Turn bulb counterclockwise. Replace the bulb only with a 10watt appliance bulb. Replace the cover and secure with the
screw.
