CHECK YOUR VENT SYSTEM FOR GOOD AIR FLOW

Good Air Flow
Along with heat, dryers require good air flow to efficiently
dry laundry. Proper venting will reduce your drying times
and improve your energy savings. See Installation
Instructions.
The venting system attached to the dryer plays a big role in
good air flow.
Service calls caused by improper venting are not covered
by the warranty and will be paid by the customer, regardless
of who installed the dryer.
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,
drying air 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. The dryer will default to Normal Dryness Level to give you optimal dryness
for your load and save energy.
With Timed Dry, the dryer runs the amount of time set and sometimes results in shrinkage, wrinkling, and static due to overdrying.
Use Timed Dry for the occasional damp load that needs a little more drying time or when using the drying rack.
