to dry quickly.

breaker. If the problem continues, call an electrician.

For gas dryers, make sure that the valve on the gas supply line
is open.
This is normal. The thumping sound should diminish after a few
minutes of use.
Check the front and rear edges of the drum for small objects. Clean
out pockets before laundering.
The dryer may vibrate if not properly installed. See the
"Installation Instructions." All four dryer feet should be in
firm contact with the floor.
When balled up, the load will bounce, causing the dryer to
vibrate. Separate the load items and restart the dryer.
On gas dryers, you may hear the gas valve clicking as it opens and
closes. This is normal.
Clean lint screen before each load.
Run the dryer for 5-10 minutes. Hold your hand under the
outside exhaust hood to check air movement. If you do not
feel air movement, clean exhaust system of lint or replace
exhaust vent with heavy metal or flexible metal vent.
Check that the exhaust vent is not too long or has too many turns.
Long venting will increase drying times.
Use 4" (102 mm) diameter vent material.
Clothes not contacting the moisture sensors during Cycle. See
"Level the Dryer".
Select the right temperature for the types of garments being
dried.
Separate the load to tumble freely.
