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 25 – 26.
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 150 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, "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.

DRUM LIGHT

During operating cycle, you can see the
drum inside by choosing drum light nction.
It helps easy viewing the drying cycle.
Drum light will operate at any time with
pressing DRUM LIGHT button.

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.
HOW TO USE

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.
