Cycle Settings

For best results

Appropriate Temperature, Dryness level and Options will

return to factory settings, press the Pause/Cancel and Select
buttons at the same time and hold until the signal sounds.

Dryness Level (Auto Dry)
To change the preset level, press the Dryness button to scroll
to the degree of dryness desired.
To protect your fabrics, not all Dryness levels are available

cycle, it cannot be selected.
The Dryness level selected for the cycle will be remembered

Occasionally a load may seem too damp or over-dried at the
end of the cycle. To increase drying time for similar loads in
the future, select More Dry. For loads requiring less drying
time, select Less Dry.
Select Damp for items you wish to partially dry before hang-
ing or ironing.

Cycle Options

To select or delete the Soft Heat, Shrink Guard, Wrinkle
Rid, or Cycle Signal, press OPTIONS until the blinking light
indicates the desired option. Then, while it is blinking, press
Select. The indicator will light when the option has been se-
lected. It will no longer be lighted when the option has been
removed.
Not all options are available on every model or are compatible
with every cycle. The indicator will not light if the option is
not available with that cycle.
To change the options once the cycle has begun,
press the Pause/Cancel button once, make the new selec-
tion and press Start again.
The options selected for the cycle will be remembered and
recalled each time that cycle is selected in the future. To
return to factory settings, press the Pause/Cancel and Select
buttons at the same time and hold until the signal sounds.
Soft Heat
Select the Soft Heat option to protect a load from
excessive heat which can lead to shrinking and over-drying.
The drying temperature will be gradually reduced as the
load dries.
Shrink Guard
Select Shrink Guard to lower the initial drying temperature.
Add it to the Soft Heat option to further protect fabrics
from overdrying.
Wrinkle Rid
Select Wrinkle Rid if the dried load might not be removed
promptly at the end of the cycle. The dry load will continue
tumbling without heat for 30 minutes to help reduce
wrinkling. When the Cycle Signal is selected, a beep will
be heard periodically. The load may be removed any time
during Wrinkle Rid.
Cycle Signal
A signal will sound at the end of the cycle and periodically
during Wrinkle Rid if this option is selected.
