Auto Dry cycles take the guesswork out of drying time
and enhance fabric care. The amount of time that is
displayed is the estimated time remaining in the cycle.
To use a Manual Cycle
Point the dial to a Manual Cycle.
Press TIMING Up or Down until the desired drying time is
displayed. Tap TIMING Up or Down, and the time will
change by 1-minute intervals. Press and hold TIMING Up
or Down, and the time will change by 5-minute intervals.

Drying and Cycle Tips
Select the correct cycle and dryness level or temperature for your
load. If an Auto Cycle is running, the display shows the estimated
cycle time when your dryer is automatically sensing the dryness
level of your load. If a Manual Cycle is running, the display shows
the exact number of minutes remaining in the cycle.
Cool Down tumbles the load without heat during the last few
minutes of all cycles. Cool Down makes the loads easier to
handle and reduces wrinkling. The length of the Cool Down
depends on the load size and dryness level.
Follow care label directions when they are available.
If desired, add a fabric softener sheet. Follow package
Remove the load from the dryer as soon as tumbling stops to
reduce wrinkling. This is especially important for permanent
press, knits and synthetic fabrics.
Avoid drying heavy work clothes with lighter fabrics. This
could cause overdrying of lighter fabrics, leading to increased
shrinkage or wrinkling.
Dry most loads using the preset cycle settings.
Refer to the Auto or Manual Preset Cycle Settings chart (in
the "Cycles" section) for a guide to drying various loads.
Drying temperature and Dryness are preset when you
choose an Auto Cycle. You can choose a different
dryness level, depending on your load by pressing the
DRYNESS button to select MORE DRY or LESS DRY.
If you wish to adjust the cycle length of a Manual Cycle,
you must press TIMING Up or Down. Adjust the
temperature of a Manual Cycle by pressing TEMP
ADJUST until the desired temperature is selected.
NOTE: You cannot choose a Dryness Level with Manual
You may follow the progress of your dryer with the drying Status
When a cycle is first turned on, the SENSING light illuminates
until a wet item is detected.
In an Auto Cycle, if a wet item has not been detected within
5 minutes, the Sensing light will turn off.
In a Manual Cycle, if a wet item is not detected within
5 minutes, the Sensing light will turn off and the Damp
light will turn on.
The WET light will turn on when a wet item has been detected in
the dryer. The Wet light will remain on until:
The damp dry point is reached in an Auto or Manual Cycle.
The DAMP light indicates that the load has reached the damp dry
The COOL DOWN light illuminates during the cool down part of
the cycle. Laundry is cooling down for ease in handling.
This light illuminates when a drying cycle is finished. If the
WRINKLE SHIELD™ feature has been selected, the WRINKLE
SHIELD™ feature indicator light will also be illuminated.
The Cycle Complete light turns off 1 hour after the end of a drying
cycle (including the WRINKLE SHIELD™ cycle of 90 minutes),
when Pause/Cancel is pressed, or when the door is opened.
