CHECK YOUR VENT SYSTEM FOR GOOD AIR FLOW
Good Air Flow
Along with heat, dryers require good air flow to efficiently
dry laundry. Proper venting will reduce your drying times
and improve your energy savings. See Installation
The venting system attached to the dryer plays a big role
in good air flow. Blocked or crushed vents as well as
improper venting installation will reduce air flow and
Service calls caused by improper venting are not covered
by the warranty and will be paid by the customer, regardless
of who installed the dryer. To clean or repair venting, contact
a venting specialist.
Use sensing cycles for better fabric care and energy savings
Use the Sensing Cycles to get the most energy savings and enhanced fabric care from the dryer. During Sensing Cycles, drying
air temperature and moisture level are sensed in the load. This sensing occurs throughout the drying cycle and the dryer shuts off
when the load reaches the selected dryness. Choose Normal cycle to save energy.
With Timed Cycles, the dryer runs the amount of time set and sometimes results in shrinkage, wrinkling, and static due to
overdrying. Use Timed Cycles for the occasional damp load that needs a little more drying time or when using the drying rack.
Maintain good air flow by:
Cleaning your lint screen before each load.
Replacing plastic or foil vent material with 4" (102 mm)
diameter heavy, rigid vent material.
Using the shortest length of vent possible.
Using no more than four 90° elbows in a vent system;
each bend and curve reduces air flow.
Removing lint and debris from the exhaust hood.
Removing lint from the entire length of the vent system
at least every 2 years. When cleaning is complete,
be sure to follow the "Installation Instructions" supplied
with your dryer for final product check.
Clearing away items from the front the dryer.
