Are fabric softener sheets blocking the grille?
Use only one fabric softener sheet, and use it only once.
Is the exhaust vent the correct length?
Check that the exhaust vent is not too long or has too many
turns. Long venting will increase drying times. See "Plan Vent
System."
Is the exhaust vent diameter the correct size?
Use 4" (102 mm) diameter vent material.
WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from dryer.
Place dryer at least 18 inches (460 mm) above the floor
for a garage installation.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Is the dryer located in a room with temperature below
45ºF (7ºC)?
Proper operation of dryer cycles requires temperatures above
45ºF (7ºC).
Is the dryer located in a closet?
Closet doors must have ventilation openings at the top and
bottom of the door. The front of the dryer requires a minimum
of 1" (25 mm) of airspace, and, for most installations, the rear
of the dryer requires 5" (127 mm). See "Installation
Instructions."
Has the Air Only modifier been selected?
Select the right temperature for the types of garments being
dried. See "Additional Features."
Is the load too large and heavy to dry quickly?
Separate the load to tumble freely.
Cycle time too short
WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install dryer.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Is the automatic cycle ending early?
The load may not be contacting the sensor strips. Level the
dryer.
Change the dryness level setting on Auto Cycles. Increasing
or decreasing the dryness level will change the amount of
drying time in a cycle.
Do not use a dryer rack with an Auto Cycle.
Lint on load
Is the lint screen clogged?
Clean lint screen. Check for air movement.
Stains on load or drum
Was dryer fabric softener properly used?
Add dryer fabric softener sheets at the beginning of the cycle.
Fabric softener sheets added to a partially dried load can
stain your garments.
Drum stains are caused by dyes in clothing (usually blue
jeans). This will not transfer to other clothing.
Loads are wrinkled
Was the load removed from dryer at the end of the cycle?
Was the dryer overloaded?
Dry smaller loads that can tumble freely.
Odors
Have you recently been painting, staining, or varnishing in
the area where your dryer is located?
If so, ventilate the area. When the odors or fumes are gone
from the area, rewash and dry the clothing.
Is the dryer being used for the first time?
The new electric heating element may have an odor. The odor
will be gone after the first cycle.
