To operate your dryer, follow these basic steps:
Check and clean the lint filter. (See page 8.)
Load the dryer. (See page 8.)
Select the desired cycle. (See page 9, pages
11-14 and page 29.)
Normal Operating Sounds
You may or may not hear the following sounds
from your new dryer:
A. WATER VALVE (Steam models only.) The flow of
water is controlled by electric solenoids. During
operation there may be a clicking sound as the
valve opens and closes to control the water flow.
B. SUSPENSION ROLLERS The dryer drum
is supported by a set of suspension rollers.
At times there may be a thumping or rolling
sound when the dryer starts. This may happen
if the dryer has not been in use for a period of
time, or after a heavy load has remained in the
dryer drum for an extended period, creating
a temporary flat spot on the edge of the
roller. The noise should dissipate as the dryer
operates and the flat spots smooth out.
C. PERFECT TUMBLE™ When the reversing-
action option of perfect tumble™ is selected,
you will hear the intermittent sound of the dryer
stopping, momentarily pausing, then restarting in
the opposite direction.
D. AIR FLOW SYSTEM Your dryer is equipped
with a high volume air handling system. In
some installations there may be some sounds
associated with air movement throughout
the dryer, including the air duct, blower, and
exhaust system. This is normal and can vary
with load size and type.
E. GAS VALVE (Gas models only.) The flow of gas is
controlled by electric solenoids. During operation
Select desired settings and options. (See page
9, page 17, page 18, and pages 19-20.)
Start the dryer. (See page 10.)
there may be a clicking sound as the valve opens
and closes to control the gas flow.
F. GAS BURNER (Gas models only.) When the
burner is operating, there may be sounds
generated as the air flow mixes with the gas
flame. This noise is normal and will only occur
when the gas is ignited in the combustion tube.
