How Auto Dry works
SmartHeat™ improves drying performance with Auto
Moisture Sensing Plus, which advances the cycle as moisture
is extracted from clothing. A thermistor (electronic
temperature sensor) and moisture sensing strips in the dryer
drum help measure the amount of moisture in the clothes as
they tumble. An electronic control determines the load type to
help save time, avoid overdrying, and increase the accuracy
of the end dryness level. After the first 5 minutes of an
automatic cycle, the estimated time display will adjust based
on the approximate load size, cycle, dryness level selected
and amount of moisture left in the clothes. When the clothes
have reached approximately 80% of the dryness level
selected, the estimated time display will adjust again,
showing the final drying time. Auto Moisture Sensing Plus
takes the guesswork out of drying time and enhances fabric
care.
To use a Timed Cycle
NOTE: A light next to each feature will glow green when the
feature is selected or will glow amber when the feature is
selectable.
Press a Timed Cycles button.
Press MORE TIME or LESS TIME until the desired drying
time is displayed. Tap MORE TIME or LESS TIME, and the
time will change by 1-minute intervals. Press and hold
MORE TIME or LESS TIME, and the time will change by
5-minute intervals.
NOTE: The More Time and Less Time buttons can be
used only with Timed Cycles and the Touch Up Cycle.
Press TEMPERATURE until the desired temperature
glows.
NOTE: During a Timed Cycle, you can change the settings for
Time, Temperature, WRINKLE GUARD
Signal. Press STOP twice to stop the dryer and clear the
settings. Select another cycle or option. For Air Fluff, the
temperature is not adjustable.
To use a SteamCare Cycle
NOTE: A light next to each feature will glow blue when the
feature is selected or will glow amber when the feature is
selectable.
Use of a fabric softener sheet is not recommended with
SteamCare cycles as it may cause temporary staining on
clothes.
Press the POWER button. Then rotate the dial to select
the SteamCare Cycle. The indicator light for the selected
cycle will glow blue. The preset modifiers for the selected
cycle will glow green. Selectable options will glow amber.
If an option or modifier is unavailable with the selected
cycle, the light will not illuminate. The actual cycle time (in
minutes) will show in the display.
Press MORE TIME or LESS TIME until the desired drying
time is displayed. Tap MORE TIME or LESS TIME, and the
time will change by 1-minute intervals. Press and hold
MORE TIME or LESS TIME, and the time will change by
5-minute intervals.
NOTE: The More Time and Less Time buttons can be
used only with Timed Cycles and the Touch Up Cycle.

To stop your dryer at any time
Press STOP twice or open the door.
To pause the dryer at any time
Open the door or press STOP once.
To restart the dryer
Close the door. Press and hold START until dryer starts.
NOTE: Drying will continue from where the cycle was interrupted
if you close the door and press Start within 5 minutes. If the cycle
is interrupted for more than 5 minutes, the dryer will shut off.
Select new cycle settings before restarting the dryer.

and End of Cycle
This feature allows you to lock your settings to avoid unintended
use of the dryer. You can also use the Control Locked feature to
avoid unintended cycle or option changes during dryer operation.
To enable the Control Locked feature:
Press and hold CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds. The Control
Locked indicator light glows, and a single beep tone is heard. To
unlock, press and hold CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds. The
indicator light turns off.
Select the correct cycle and dryness level or temperature for your
load. If an Auto Cycle is running, the display shows the estimated
cycle time, which is determined by your dryer automatically
sensing the dryness level of your load. If a Timed Cycle or
SteamCare Cycle is running, the display shows the exact number
of minutes remaining in the cycle.
Cool Down tumbles the load without heat during the last few
minutes of all cycles. Cool Down makes the loads easier to
handle and reduces wrinkling. The length of the Cool Down
depends on the load size and dryness level.

Drying and Cycle Tips

Follow care label directions when they are available.
If desired, add a fabric softener sheet. Follow package
instructions.
To reduce wrinkling, remove the load from the dryer as soon
as tumbling stops. This is especially important for permanent
press, knits and synthetic fabrics.
