Vacation, storage, and moving care
Steam models only: Install and store your dryer where it
will not freeze. Because some water may stay in the hose,
freezing can damage your dryer. If storing or moving your
dryer during freezing weather, winterize it.
Non-Use or Storage Care
Operate your dryer only when you are at home. If you will
be on vacation or not using your dryer for an extended
period of time, you should:
1. Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
2. Clean lint screen. See "Cleaning the Lint Screen."
3. Turn off the water supply to the dryer. This helps to avoid
unintended flooding (due to a water pressure surge)
while you are away.
Moving Care

1. Unplug the power supply cord.
2. Gas models only: Close shut-off valve in gas supply line.
3. Gas models only: Disconnect gas supply line pipe and
remove fittings attached to dryer pipe.

the hose. Transport hose separately.
