Time Display
When you select an Automatic cycle, the estimated time is
displayed in the Time Remaining window and the Estimated light
is lit.
When you select a Timed cycle, the actual time is diplayed in the
Time Remaining window.
Drying Status Lights
You can monitor the progress of your load with the Drying Status
The Sensing light flashes at the start of the load when the
electronic moisture sensor is searching for wetness.
Once the moisture sensor detects wetness in the load,
the Wet light flashes until the moisture sensor can no
longer detect wetness in the clothes.
The Damp light flashes after the moisture sensor no
longer detects wetness in the clothes. At this point, the
clothes are approximately 80% dry. You may want to
remove lightweight items in a mixed load to prevent
overdrying or remove partially dry items to hang up to
save on ironing. The Damp light will flash for
approximately two minutes.
Drying/Cool Down
The Drying/Cool Down light will continue to flash until
Cool Down is completed. The Drying/Cool Down light will
also flash if a Timed Cycle has been selected and the
Sensing light does not detect any moisture in the clothes.
The WRINKLE SHIELD™ setting light is lit when it is
selected. The light flashes after the Cool Down period is
complete. The WRINKLE SHIELD setting light will
continue to flash until the clothes are removed or the 120
minutes of the WRINKLE SHIELD system have expired.
You can customize your cycles by selecting different features. If
you change your mind, select a different feature.

without tumbling. The drum turns, but the rack does not move.
To use the drying rack
1. Slide rear pegs into the dimples on the back wall of the dryer.
Lower the front legs to rest on the dryer opening.
2. Put the wet items on top of the rack. Leave space between
the items so air can reach all the surfaces. Close the door.
NOTE: Do not allow items to hang over the edge of the rack.
3. Select the Rack Dry cycle. Press the MORE TIME or LESS
TIME arrows, if desired. Press the TIMED CYCLES SELECT
pad to select a temperature. Items containing foam, rubber,
or plastic must be dried on a clothesline or by using an Air
Cycle. Press the START pad.
NOTE: You must remove rack for normal tumbling. Do not
use automatic cycles with the drying rack.
