To reduce the risk of fire, electrical

this dryer, comply with the basic warn-
ings listed below. Failure to comply with
the Important Safety Instruction warn-
ings could result in property damage,
serious personal injury, or death.
Prevent Fire
• DO NOT dry items that have been
previously cleaned in, soaked in, or
spotted with gasoline, cleaning solvents,
kerosene, waxes, or other flammable or
explosive substances. DO NOT store
these items on or near the dryer. These
substances give off vapors that could
ignite or explode.
• DO NOT place items exposed to cooking
oils in your dryer. Items contaminated
with cooking oils may contribute to a
chemical reaction that could cause a load
to catch fire. To reduce the risk of fire
due to contaminated loads, the final part
of a tumble dryer cycle occurs without
heat (cool down period). Avoid stopping
a tumble dryer before the end of the
drying cycle unless all items are quickly
removed and spread out so that the heat
is dissipated.
• DO NOT dry articles containing rubber,
plastic or similar materials such as bras,
galoshes, bath mats, rugs, bibs, baby
pants, plastic bags and pillows that may
melt or burn. Some rubber materials,
when heated, can under certain circum-
stances produce fire by spontaneous
• DO NOT operate the dryer if the lint
screen is blocked, damaged or missing.
Fire hazard, overheating and damage to
fabrics can occur.
• DO NOT obstruct the flow of ventilating
air. DO NOT stack or place laundry or
throw rugs against the front or back of
the dryer.
Clean the lint screen before or after each
load. The interior of the dryer, lint screen
housing and exhaust duct should be
cleaned approximately every 18 months
by qualified service personnel. An exces-
sive amount of lint build-up in these ar-
eas could result in inefficient drying and
possible fire. See Care and Cleaning .
A clothes dryer produces combustible
lint. The dryer must be connected to an
outdoor exhaust. Regularly inspect the
outdoor exhaust opening and remove
any accumulation of lint around the
opening and in the surrounding area.
• DO NOT spray any type of aerosol into,
on or near dryer at any time.
