Cycle Selection

Turn the Cycle Selector knob to the desired cycle. For
best results, follow the fabric care label instructions on
items to be dried. If the selection is changed after the
cycle starts, the indicator lights will blink, the signal
will beep and "ERR" will be displayed. To change the
selection after the cycle has begun, press Cancel
before making another choice. Just turning the knob
to another selection will not change the cycle. The
signal will beep and the status lights will flash, but the

Auto Dry
Auto Dry cycles take the guesswork out of drying time.
Loads dried using the Towels, Heavy Duty, Normal, Perm
Press, and Delicates cycles will dry automatically at
the selected temperature to the desired dryness level.
The dryer uses sensing bars to sense the moisture
level of the load as it tumbles through heated air. Auto
Dry cycles save time and energy and protect fabrics.
The estimated drying time will be displayed for about
5 minutes. Then the outside of the display will light up
in a circular track to indicate the drying time is
automatically being determined by the sensors. When
the load has reached the selected dryness level, it will
continue to tumble, unheated, during a Cool Down period.
This helps reduce wrinkling and makes items easier to
handle during unloading. The estimated Cool Down
time will be displayed.
