Heat Pump Technology

A typical dryer uses large amounts of energy; this dryer consumes a fraction of the energy by recycling and reclaiming heat.
This dryer is a ventless heat pump dryer that uses a refrigeration system to dry and recycle the same air. The laundry
is dried with low temperatures; therefore it may feel cooler than expected during and after the drying process.
The heat pump dryer's heating phase is longer than in traditional dryers. If possible, do not open the dryer door during the process
as heat can escape from the drum and can make longer drying times.

Use Automatic Cycles for better fabric care and energy savings
Use the Automatic Cycles to provide the most energy savings and enhanced fabric care from the dryer. During Automatic Cycles,
heat pump unit temperature and moisture level are sensed in the load. This sensing occurs throughout the drying cycle and the
dryer shuts off when the load reaches the selected dryness. Use the NORMAL dryness level to provide optimal energy savings.
With Timed Dry, the dryer runs the amount of time set and can result in shrinkage, wrinkling, and static due to over-drying.
Use Timed Dry for the occasional damp load that needs a little more drying time.
Benefits of a Heat Pump
• ENERGY: Regenerates energy to reduce overall energy
• PERFORMANCE: Allows flexibility to manage drying
performance and energy savings.
• FABRIC CARE: Capability to use less heat than vented dryer.
• VENTLESS DESIGN: Allows installation in more locations
throughout the home.
New Sounds from a Heat Pump
• Dryer runs on a compressor like your refrigerator and you
may notice a hum from the compressor.
• The water from wet clothes is pumped out to your drain or
water tank. You may notice a gurgling sound occasionally.
