CYCLE OPTIONS AND SPECIAL FEATURES

Your dryer features several additional cycle options and special features to meet your individual needs. For all steam
features, see the following pages.

STEAM FEATURES

All steam functions are described on pages 26-27.
To Add Cycle Options to a Cycle:
Turn on the dryer.
Turn the Cycle Selector Knob to select the desired
cycle.
Press the Cycle Option button(s) for the option you
would like to add.
Press the START Button to start the cycle.
The dryer will start automatically.

WRINKLE GUARD

Selecting this option will tumble the
clothes for a few seconds every
few minutes without heat. This
option is active for 180 minutes
after the end of the cycle, or until the door is opened.
This helps prevent wrinkles in the clothes caused by
lying in the bottom of the drum when you can't be there
to remove them immediately after the cycle is completed.

CONTROL LOCK

Use this option to disable the
controls. This feature allows you to
prevent children from changing
cycles or operating the machine.
Once set, the CONTROL LOCK must be turned off
before the controls can be used. Once the dryer has shut
off, the power button will allow the machine to be turned
on, but the controls will still be locked. When the controls
are locked, the control lock light will be illuminated and
"CL" will be displayed alternately with the estimated time
remaining. Press and hold the CONTROL LOCK button
for 5 seconds to activate or deactivate the controls.

MY CYCLE

If you have a special combination
of settings that you use frequently,
you can save these settings as a
MY CYCLE. Select the cycle,
modifiers and options you want to use, then press and
hold the MY CYCLE button for three seconds. A chime
will sound to let you know that the settings have been
memorized. Select the cycle, modifiers and options you
want to use, then press and hold the MY CYCLE button
for three seconds. A chime will sound to let you know that

DRUM LIGHT

Use the DRUM LIGHT button to
turn on the light inside the drum
during cycle operation.
NOTE: The drum light will also come on if the dryer door
is opened. However, after the dryer has been off for
more than 4 minutes, the drum light will be disabled until
the POWER button is pressed to turn on the dryer.
HOW TO USE

SANITIZE CYCLE

The SANITIZE cycle is designed to kill bacteria in your
clothing. When this cycle is selected, the temperature is
set to HIGH and the dry level is set to EXTRA DRY.
These default settings cannot be changed.
NOTE:
• Do NOT use this cycle with delicate items or fabrics.
• Steam cannot be added to the SANITIZE cycle.

RACK DRY CYCLE

RACK DRY cycle is designed to carefully dry items that
should not be tumbled in the dryer, such as sweaters,
stuffed animals, gym shoes, etc. This cycle uses gentle
heat to prevent overheating of items since they are not
tumbling.
NOTE: Never use any cycle but RACK DRY when the
rack is being used.
With the dryer door open, slide the rack into the
dryer drum.
Make sure the front of the rack is seated properly in
the recess on the lint filter housing at the front of the
drum. The two rear legs of the rack should be resting
on the rear wall just above the drum.
Place items to be dried on the rack. Make sure no
part of the articles hang over the edges of the rack, as
they might be contacted by the rotating drum causing
noise or damage to the drum or articles.
NOTE: Be sure to remove the drying rack after using
the RACK DRY cycle.
