3. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the recommended cycle for the
type of load being dried. See "Drying, Cycle, and Temperature
Tips."
4. Select a temperature setting on models with a Temperature
selector. The cycle descriptions include temperature setting
suggestions.
NOTE: The temperature selector is part of the Cycle Control
knob on some models.
5. Select the End of Cycle Signal, if available. The signal is
helpful when drying permanent press or synthetics. Promptly
remove these items from the dryer at the end of the cycle to
help avoid wrinkles.

ignition system for the burner which is fully automatic; no
action is needed by the user (there is no pilot light).
NOTE: Your dryer stops automatically when a cycle ends.

Stopping and Restarting

You can stop your dryer anytime during a cycle.
To stop your dryer
Open the dryer door or turn the Cycle Control knob to OFF.
NOTE: The Cycle Control knob should point to an Off area when
the dryer is not in use.
To restart your dryer
1. Close the door.
2. Select a new cycle and temperature (if desired).
3. Press the Start button.

Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips

Select the correct cycle and temperature for your load.
Cool Down tumbles the load without heat during the last few
minutes of all cycles to make the load easier to handle.
Drying tips
Follow care label directions when they are available.
If desired, add a fabric softener sheet. Follow package
instructions.
Remove the load from the dryer as soon as tumbling stops, to
reduce wrinkling. This is especially important for permanent
press, knits, and synthetic fabrics.
Cycle and temperature tips
Use a High heat setting for drying heavyweight items such as
towels, work clothes, and sheets.
Use a Low heat setting for drying lightweight items such as
lingerie, underwear, blouses, dresses, permanent press
fabrics, and some knits.
Use an Air Dry (no heat) setting for rubber, plastic, or heat-
sensitive fabrics.
Line dry bonded or laminated fabrics.
NOTE: If you have questions about drying temperatures for
various loads, refer to the care label directions. If you are unsure
of the temperature to select for a load, select a lower setting
rather than a higher setting.
