TROUBLESHOOTING
Possible Causes
The load is too large and heavy to
dry quickly.
Fabric softener sheets are blocking
the grille.
The dryer is located in a room with
temperature below 45ºF (7ºC).
The dryer is located in a closet.
The load may not be contacting the
sensor strips on Sensing Cycles.
Clothes are coming out of the Steam
Refresh cycle with damp or wet spots.
The sensing cycle is ending early.
Lint screen is clogged with lint.
Improper use of fabric softener.
Loose dyes in clothes.
The load was not removed from dryer
at the end of the cycle.
The dryer was tightly packed.
For steam cycles, the water is not
properly connected with the dryer.
Recent painting, staining, or varnishing
in the area where your dryer is
located.
For steam cycles, the water is not
properly connected with the dryer.
Odors are left in garments after
wearing.
Separate the load to tumble freely.
The air outlet grille is just inside the door, behind the lint screen.
Check that it is not blocked by a fabric softener sheet.
Use only one fabric softener sheet, and use it only once.
Proper operation of dryer cycles requires temperatures above
45ºF (7ºC).
Closet doors must have ventilation openings at the top and
bottom of the door. The front of the dryer requires a minimum of
1" (25 mm) of airspace, and, for most installations, the rear of the
dryer requires 5" (127 mm). See the Installation Instructions.
Level the dryer. See the Installation Instructions. All four dryer feet
should be in firm contact with the floor.
Under certain environmental or installation conditions, you may
experience under drying.
Change the dryness level setting on Sensing Cycles. Increasing or
decreasing the dryness level will change the amount of drying
time in a cycle. If loads are consistently ending too early, see also
"Changing the Sensing Cycle settings to increase or decrease
drying time."
Clean lint screen before each load.
Add dryer fabric softener sheets at the beginning of the cycle.
Fabric softener sheets added to a partially dried load can stain
your garments. Do not use fabric softener sheets with steam
cycles.
Drum stains are caused by dyes in clothing (usually blue jeans).
These will not transfer to other clothing.
Select Steam Refresh cycle to tumble the load with water and
heat. This cycle is best for smoothing out wrinkles and reducing
odors from dry loads consisting of wrinkle-free cotton, cotton-
polyester blends, common knits, and synthetics.
NOTE: Refer to garment care label instructions. Dry-clean-only
garments are not recommended.
Dry smaller loads that can tumble freely. Results may also vary
depending on fabric type.
Make sure water is connected to the dryer. Check that water inlet
hose is connected to both the faucet and dryer's water inlet valve.
Check that the water supply is turned on.
Ventilate the area. When the odors or fumes are gone from the
area, rewash and dry the clothing.
Make sure water is connected to the dryer. Check that water
inlet hose is connected to both the faucet and dryer's water inlet
valve. Check that the water supply is turned on.
To remove odors left in garments after wearing, select Steam
