Cleaning the Exterior
Proper care of your dryer can extend its life. The outside
of the machine can be cleaned with warm water and a
mild, nonabrasive household detergent. Immediately wipe
oﬀ any spills with a soft, damp cloth.
IMPORTANT: Do not use cleaning alcohols, solvents, or
NEVER use steel wool or abrasive cleansers because they
can damage the surface.
Cleaning the Interior
Wipe around the door opening and seal with a soft,
damp cloth to prevent lint and dust buildup that could
damage the door seal.
Clean the window with a soft cloth dampened with warm

Cleaning the Lint Filter
USER MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
To reduce the risk of ﬁ re, electric shock, or injury to persons, read this entire manual,
ALWAYS make sure the lint ﬁ lter is clean before every
cycle. The CHECK FILTER light on the control panel will
blink before every cycle to remind you.
NOTE: NEVER operate the dryer without the lint ﬁ lter.
To remove lint between cycles:
Open the dryer door.
Pull the lint ﬁ lter straight up.
Roll any lint oﬀ the ﬁ lter with your ﬁ ngers.
Periodic thorough cleaning:
Some fabric softeners can build up on the lint ﬁ lter over
time. This buildup can restrict the airﬂ ow through the ﬁ lter
reducing dryer eﬃ ciency and lengthening drying times.
After removing lint, if the ﬁ lter looks dark or dirty when
held up to the light, follow these steps to clean:
Use hot soapy water and a stiﬀ brush to clean the ﬁ lter.
Make sure the ﬁ lter is completely dry before
reinstalling it and using the dryer.
NOTE: NEVER operate the dryer with a wet lint ﬁ lter.
Vent ductwork should be checked for lint build up once per
month and cleaned at least once per year. If any noticeable
reduction in airﬂ ow or drying performance occurs, immediately
check the ductwork for obstruction and blockages. Contact a
qualiﬁ ed technician or service provider.
