Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable
materials
and vapors, such as
gasoline,
away from dryer.
Place dryer at least 18 inches (46 cm)above
the floor
for a garage installation.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion,
or fire.
Is the dryer located in a room with temperature
below
45°F (7°C)?
Proper operation of dryer cycles requires temperatures above
45°F (7°C).
Is the dryer located in a closet?
Closet doors must have ventilation openings at the top and
bottom of the door. The front of the dryer requires a minimum
of 1" (2.5 cm) of airspace, and, for most installations, the rear
of the dryer requires 5" (12.7 cm). See "Installation
Instructions."

Select the right cycle for the types of garments being dried.
See "Modifiers."

Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Is the automatic cycle ending early?
The load may not be contacting
the sensor strips. Level the
dryer.
Change the dryness level setting on Auto Cycles. Increasing
or decreasing the dryness level will change the amount of
drying time in a cycle.

Lint on load
Is the lint screen clogged?
Clean lint screen. Check for air movement.
Stains on load or drum
Was dryer fabric softener properly
used?
Add dryer fabric softener sheets at the beginning of the cycle.

stain your garments.
Drum stains are caused by dyes in clothing (usually blue
jeans). This will not transfer to other clothing.

Was the load removed from dryer at the end of the cycle?
Was the dryer overloaded?
Dry smaller loads that can tumble freely.
Odors
Have you recently been painting, staining or varnishing in
the area where your dryer is located?
If so, ventilate the area. When the odors or fumes are gone
from the area, rewash and dry the clothing.
Is the dryer being used for the first time?
The new electric heating element may have an odor. The odor
will be gone after the first cycle.
