To reduce the risk of fire, explosion, electric shock, or injury to persons when using your appliance,
follow basic precautions, including the following:
Read all instructions before using the appliance.
DO NOT dry articles that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline,
dry-cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances, as they give off vapors that could ignite or
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 the 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.

appliance is used near children.
Before the appliance is removed from service or discarded, remove the door to the drying compartment.

fabric softener or product.
DO NOT dry articles containing foam rubber or similarly textured rubber-like materials.
Clean lint screen before or after each load.
