Changing the Sensing Cycle settings
to increase or decrease drying time
If all your loads on all Automatic Cycles are consistently less dry
or more dry than you would like, you may change the default
settings to increase or decrease the default dryness level.
Your automatic drying settings can be adjusted to adapt to
different installations, environmental conditions, or personal
preference. This change is retained and will affect all of your
Automatic Cycles, not just the current cycle/load. There are
5 drying settings, which are displayed using the time display:
0 Much wetter clothes, 30% less drying time.
Slightly wetter clothes, 15% less drying time.
1
2 Factory preset dryness level.
3 Slightly drier clothes, 15% more drying time.
4 Much drier clothes, 30% more drying time.
To change the drying settings:
NOTE: The settings cannot be changed while the dryer
is running or paused. The dryer must be in standby mode
(power is off) to adjust the default settings.
1. Before starting a cycle, touch and hold DRY LEVEL
for 3 seconds.
2. Touch DRY LEVEL to select the dryness level shown in the
time display: 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4.
3. Touch START/PAUSE to save the new dryness level setting.

DRYER CARE

Cleaning the dryer location
Keep dryer area clear and free from items that would block
the air flow for proper dryer operation. This includes clearing
piles of laundry in front of the dryer.
Cleaning the dryer interior

stained area of the drum and rub with a soft cloth until

2. Wipe drum thoroughly with a damp cloth.

Cleaning the dryer interior (cont.)
3. Tumble a load of clean cloths or towels to dry the drum
OR
Use a microfiber cloth and hot water in a spray bottle to
clean the drum and a second microfiber towel to dry.
NOTE: Items that contain loose 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 these items inside out
to avoid drum staining.
Removing accumulated lint
From Inside the Dryer Cabinet
Lint should be removed every 2 years, or more often,
depending on dryer usage. Cleaning should be done
by a qualified servicer.
From the Exhaust Vent
Lint should be removed every 2 years, or more often,
depending on dryer usage.
Cleaning the lint screen
Every load cleaning
The lint screen is located in the dryer. A screen blocked by
lint can increase drying time.
To clean:
1. Pull the lint screen out of its holder. 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:
n 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.
n If lint falls off the screen into the dryer during removal,
check the exhaust hood and remove the lint. See "Venting
Requirements" in the Installation Instructions.
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 while the screen is in the dryer.
Clean the lint screen with a nylon brush every 6 months,
or more frequently, if it becomes clogged due to a residue
buildup.
